Stayed two nights on our way to UK for holiday (we live in SW France) as we wanted to see the WW2 sites, War graves, museums etc. Good basic motel style accomodation with excellent hosts who made our stay very pleasant. Surprised how much there is to see so we shall be returning to spend more time exploring the landing sites and visitor centres and will definitely be staying at L'ideal Mountbatten which makes an excellent base. Hotel is less than five minutes walk from "town" centre restaurants, beach with remains of Mulberry Harbour, museums, etc. Arrived late in the evening but the 6th June Brasserie who had finished cooking provided a one plate meal and sweet so we ate there the rest of our stay.
