“No air con!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Arrived here at the end of July after a long drive, it was very warm. The hotel is city centre so within walking distance of anything you want to see. The staff were friendly when I booked in but I forgot to ask one important question. ....air conditioning! The room was small and faced to the back looking over a small garden but even with the windows open was hot and stuffy. It was impossible to sleep. If your booking this hotel make sure you have air con if it's available!

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were fortunate to stay at this hotel as we had made a mistake in booking a hotel there and because of the D-Day events going on nearby all of the hotels were booked. Fortunately, they were able to accommodate us and the staff was beyond friendly. The rooms are clean, the hotel is clean, the price can't be beat, the location is directly across the street from the train station - absolutely no steps in the short walk from the train station to their reception desk. If I could give this review more than excellent rating I would. One evening we came back to the hotel a little disturbed and the staff at the desk seemed to see that on our faces I guess. We explained that we had tried to order at a restaurant very near the hotel and ended up leaving without dinner because we couldn't communicate with the staff there at all. one of the staff members actually walked us back to the restaurant and helped us order. Each time we left the building they always asked if everything was okay and if we needed anything. They were always willing to go out of their way to provide excellent customer service. When we go back to Caen we will most definitely stay here again!!
