We were four couples staying two nights in late September 2012, three in the B&B and one couple next door. Unfortunately our arrival time did not suit Management (Penny) but we were able to leave our bags and return after 4:00 pm as requested. We were not well received and asked to wait in the Lounge while others were looked after. Fair enough, but then we were rudely treated. Bad start. Two couples were assigned rooms on the 3rd floor and the third couple, due to poor directions and mis-located luggage ended up in the Blue room on the second floor. After one night they were required to move to the third floor. You want to be on the second floor (two floors up), not on the third floor where the rooms are more like garrets. The rooms were mostly well appointed, the breakfasts very good, as were the directions and advice regarding restaurants. The location in Honfleur is also good.
This building is a fire trap with one open staircase from main floor to roof. This is a winding staircase with no intermediate landings. The wood stairs are in poor condition and the stair railings do not meet any of the usual access, safety or building code standards. If you are not in very good physical condition, and if carrying your bags up and down three flights of stairs is at all difficult, then don't stay here.
Catherine is a gem. Penny needs to go to charm school!
