“The Perfect Package!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This picturesque, quaint hotel was a beautiful slice of France. Recommended to us by friends who were return customers, we were certainly not disappointed. We stayed in the mignonette room which was situated up in the eaves and took advantage of the half-board option which provided both breakfast and dinner included in the cost. As well as being a good way to save money, it was perfect for our novice French skills. The situation of the hotel in the Normandy area was advantageous for the sights which we were there to see. The staff were friendly and helpful, answering any queries that we had. The food was of an extremely high standard with dinner being comprised of 5-6 courses - make sure you allow plenty of time to enjoy. Facilities were great, with the exception of the lack of on-site laundry facilities.

Room Tip: Note that the upper rooms did have A-frame ceilings so are not suited for tall persons.

On a quick three day hop after a business trip in London, just wanted to grab a quick reservation and spend some time in Normandy. From the moment we arrived, everything was simply perfect. A lovely restored farmouse, and the neighboring manner are flawlessly,painstakingly, yet not frivolously done. We ended up staying in both a room in the Ferme, as well as a small apartment at Le Manoir. The setting at the Manoir is very nice, but the room at the main property was a bit higher end. Really would be happy to go back and stay anywhere at this perfect place, perfectly managed. The owner(s) were fantastically helpful in giving us great advice for spots to visit, eat, etc. The breakfast at Ferme de la Ranconniere were great, and we had one lovely dinner at the restaurant. I cannot say enough nice things about the property or the slightly remote location. Great spot to launch explorations of D Day and Normandy in general. Tres bien!

This 13th century fortified farm building complex has been converted to the highest standards.

The rooms are all re-finished stone & beams with modern well appointed on-suites, TV, kettle & tea/coffee makings.

We stayed in the cheapest room available as part of a half board package. The room was stunning, located in the oldest part of the building it was the original look out tower consisting of a double bedroom & a two singles bedroom up the spiral stone stairs! The view to the sea through the tiny window on the stairs was great.

Breakfast was more than adequate & the evening meal consisited of four courses of excellent food.

A bar for pre-dinner drinks or a beer is open from early afternoon.

During the colder months there is the added luxury of open fires in the Bar Lounge, Dining & Breakfast rooms.

Situated only 20 minutes drive from Arromanche to the North or Bayeux to the West the hotel is located in the Normandy countryside on the extreme edge of Crepon which celebrates it's liberation in June 1944 by the Green howards.

The hotel is ideal as a base for touring the D-Day beaches & museums due to the central location.

There is also ample opportunity to walk & if one does depending on the direction there are history story boards in convenient places.

On viewing the tariff for this establishment you may consider the prices a little steep. But be assured that it is worth every penny. Especially if you want to splash out for a couple of days luxury.

It is a very popular hotel so consider forward planning.

Room Tip: Choosing a room depends on how much you want to pay. Rooms start at 77 Euros per person per night fo...

Don't believe the photos. This place is even more beautiful in person. We weren't sure we would like the decor of the room when we booked but it was also much better in person. The bathroom was very modern. We booked a junior suite but were upgraded to a suite upon arrival. The food was inventive French. Camembert ice cream, need I say more? Close to D-Day sites. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Definitely a place to relax and unwind!

Room Tip: I imagine all rooms being nice here. We had a suite on the top floor in the main building. King bed...

I'm so happy with this find. Visited the area for 3 days and this place was perfect as our base. We did a day trip to Bayeux, one to the D-Day sites and one to Mt. St. Michel. Each day we came back to this oasis, had drinks out in the courtyard under a gorgeous sky, birds chirping, flowers blooming everywhere. So completely relaxing. The dinners were fabulous, the chef did a really great job with the food and the menu offered so many choices between beef, chicken or fish that you couldnt wait to get back and try another meal. Breakfast was quite good too.

Now, for the staff. SUPERB! I had many questions and every time I went in to the office for help, someone was there smiling and happy to help. Rooms were so spacious and clean and made me feel like I was in an old castle. I want to go back to this area just for this hotel/Inn.

Room Tip: Superior Room #30 was awesome. On the corner of the building with a nice view over the courtyard.

We will certainly be returning....

You do need a car to get here, but the location is perfect if you are visiting any of the Normandy D-Day beaches and other attractions.
The hotel is situated over 2 sites, the main hotel and restaurant, then ' Le Manoir de Mathan' (the posh rooms/suites) about 600 metres around the corner.
On arrival we couldn't believe how beautiful the place was. On check in the receptionist spoke perfect English to us, and let us know that we had been given a complimentary upgrade. The room (suite) was amazing, clean, airy, well decorated and probably bigger than the house we currently live in !!
We bought our dog with us and there was no extra charge for having her in the room, and there was also plenty of places around the hotel to walk her.

We dined in the restaurant that night, and the food was amazing and well priced for the quality and quanity.

It is maybe the "only show in town," so there is little choice if you decide to stop in Crepon. Why you would do that is an open question, as the town has little to offer.

That being said, this hotel deserves at least one more star than its official rating of three. The food is excellent, although probably pricey. We stayed three days on a half-board plan that was pre-paid as part of an Odysseys Unlimited tour. Thus, I can not comment on value for money. Every room is different, so ask to see yours before making a commitment.

The only negatives involve the reception office: limited English language and slow response to special requets.
