Following an impulse decision to visit Normandy for a D-Day tour I contacted Normandy Beach hoping for a last minute booking, fortunately they had cancellation. Contact with Adrian was warm and friendly from the start and I immediately felt at ease.
We travelled across France from Calais and as we were delayed i got my wife to phone ahead to let them know were indeed coming. After a short conversation she put the phone down and said what a freindly bloke. We were a bit frenzied on arrival in Arromanches and had to ring for directions, half way through the directions from Karen, Adrian interrupted to ask where we were and came on his scooter to lead us in. The Mrs was just walking out of the local store with a bottle of wine and a six pack when Adrian rolled up and said why did you bother, i've got hundreds of bottles and it's all FREE!
After a cold beer and wine that were thrust into our hands on arrival we got the low down from Adrian, our room was clean, comfortable and with all the usual essentials - tea, coffee, iron, hairdrier etc. There was no TV and this wasn't missed there was plenty of reading material and some interesting militaria. We had a 3 bed room with the optional fourth bed that fitted comfortably and we didn't feel at all cramped.
Adrian gave us a few recommendations for dinner in town and we found them to be good value just a short walk away. Breakfast at the large communal table was plentiful, and tasty with baskets of bread and pastries. The cooked breakfast was lovely and any alterations were never too much trouble, the kids ate for free which added further value although we did have to stop the whipped cream top up to the hot choolate or they would never have left the table :-).
Our only regret was that we were a little too tired in the evenings after putting the kids to bed to make the most of the hospitality.
For anybody interested in touring the D-Day beaches it is a perfect location in the middle of them although it looks like there are lots of other things to do in the area.
Thoroughly recommend for families, a great place
