“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Nice basic hotel right across from the train station. Room was compact but quiet and comfortable. The staff were great, we were a little late off the last ferry and they had happily stayed open to let us in. We enjoyed breakfast, plenty to eat and tasty.

I loved this hotel. Very quaint, good location (right across from train station). Several restaurants within walking distance and the restaurant attached is great as well. Breakfast was very good and the people were excellent. I can't say enough about my stay at this hotel. I will definitely try and stay here again if I make it back to Normandy. They even gave us some bread to take with us on our visit through Caen. Great experience for me and my wife.

Clean rooms and super friendly staff. Bar and restaurant on the main floor. Tasty and reasonable price. Within walking distance of the main tourist area. Parking is on the street. Not always easy to find. Rooms are average. Basic. No phone or haidryer. Would stay here again

We spent one night here following a ferry crossing from Poole to Cherbourg and then the train to Caen enroute to Rouen and Giverney. The location was excellent, directly across the road from the railway station and the staff were all very helpful. The bedroom, although quite small, was very clean and quiet and breakfast was very good. It was possible to easily visit the center of the town as the trams and buses are directly outside the station.

We did not spend the night here, but had an excellent breakfast. The service was outstanding and very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The coffee outstanding and the omelettes we had, were very tasty. I will go back for the croissants!

Worried a bit about location as usually stay in Bayeux but was very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. With my daughter and son-in-law. So clean and everything we could need from a basic hotel. Walking one way in the evening district seemed a bit seedy but just on other side of the station was a modern shopping area and numerous restaurants..

Staff and owner very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the breakfast and lovely to arrive back in the evening from travelling around to enjoy a beer outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Barking dog at back but quiet at night.

Spent 4 nights here with friends 5-9th June for D-Day celebrations. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, kind and friendly. Directly opposite Caen train station but didn't hear a thing, Rooms a bit small but so VERY VERY CLEAN. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and would stay here again. WELL DONE BOY'S, and thanks for the bottle of wine on our departure, will think of you as we drink it.
