“A Nice Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Christian was very accommodating and always had a smile. He was always very responsive on email and replied in near perfect English. We showed up around midnight and he was there to greet us with a smile. He also made space for our bikes in the back hallway so we didn't have to keep them in our room. The rooms are typical French hotel rooms...very plain. We had a bed, small bathroom and a small closet. I think there was a small TV on the wall and one small picture. Otherwise, no decor whatsoever. The breakfast was also very French. Croissant, cereal, orange juice and coffee or tea. No hot foods or cold cuts. I did not have dinner but I am willing to bet it would have been good as France is known for its exquisite dinners. The town of Arromanches is convenient for excursions to the various beaches and other sights in the area. It is a very quiet town...which I appreciated. The one exception is the 7am church bell that is right outside the rooms on the backside of the hotel. Overall, Le Mulberry is just as good as any other French hotel, but Christian's awesome attitude is what makes the difference. Oh, and it was VERY reasonably priced!

We picked the hotel at random and arrived at 15:30,completing a long journey ahead of time. That's when we discovered the hotel was closed until 17:00. I didn't expect to enjoy our stay. The staff were very welcomig and the room was clean and comfortable, without being luxurious. The food made up for it all - a limited menu (which I believe is updated daily) with a good range of well presented French dishes at a reasonable price - and a sensinble wine list.
The staff continued to be charming and very helpful, advising us on trips and visits.
We will be going back - just later in the afternoon.

We have been eating here every time we have visited over the last ten years. This has covered two changes in ownership, and the present incarnation is probably the best. The menu is small but the quality high, specializing in regional dishes.What they do they do very well. Service, whilst not of regimental efficiency, is helpful, friendly and suits the informal atmosphere of the place. Whilst we have never stayed here ourselves, friends who have are complimentary about the hotel accommodation. Euro for Euro my favorite eating place in town.

The hotel is clean, comfortable, inexpensive and has a great location in the historic D-Day town of Arromanches. The sea front is nearby with extraordinary views of the channel and the floating concrete harbours (Mulberries) which were towed across from Britain in June 1944. The restaurant in the hotel is outstanding and the food is of very high quality. I recommend Hotel le Mulberry very strongly indeed.

We stayed in a large room on the top floor in the late May, pre-D Day commemoration season. As a result, Arromanches was very quiet, with many restaurants and the one English pub, closed weekdays.

Our room was very comfortable, and the morning breakfasts were exactly as described. Allowed us a good start to our Normandy touring. It was easy to get to the main highway to travel southwest to St Lo, and points beyond, and was just east of the Omaha Beach Cemetery and Memorial. Because it was the last week May, tour buses were at a minimum, and we had many places to ourselves.

We has no idea that there were still parts of the 1944 Mulberries that created the temporary harbor still in the harbor.

It is a moving and memorable place.

We did a lot of research before deciding where to launch our family's tour of the DDay Beaches. There were other options right on the water, which has its appeal, but hands down this proved to be what we'd hoped for in terms of local welcome and warmth. The hotel is immaculately kept with pride by a wonderful family committed to every detail. The rooms are simple, extremely clean and newly redone. Lovely starched linens and new, comfortable beds. Very accommodating of families/children.

As for the meals, we were demi-pension, thus had both dinner and breakfast. Sophie, who co-runs the hotel with her husband, takes pride in every detail -- from the table settings to each of the generous courses. Her offerings are creative, delicious and purchased fresh based on the market daily. Enjoy the warm reception area and dining, where the proprietors will dote on you!

This was the perfect point of departure for our tour (quick walk to the local DDay museum and impressive Arromanches coast, where an amazingly elaborate articifical harbor was erected in a matter of days following the June 6th invasion of allied forces). We even liked the dreary winter weather, which somehow seemed fitting!

We stayed in the Mulberry after reviewing the comments on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly, the room was clean and confortable. By chance we didn't had much luggage and were young, the staircase is very small and absolutely not suited for unfit people. The restaurant offers a great menu. Not much choice, but very good food. The breakfast was also very nice.
Pro : staff, food, location
Cons : parking (street), unsuitable for elderly or physically impaired people (staircase).
