“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

We could only stay for 1 night next door at the Normandy Beach B&B which was a shame as that was lovely so we had 2 nights here. The owners smoke and the smell wafted up to the room when they lit up, then stayed as a stale smell the whole time. The bathroom was just behind a partition so there was no privacy which was disconcerting. Luckily the Normandy Beach allowed us to breakfast with them and thank goodness because I don't think I would have risked a meal here.
The only consolation was that the bed was comfortable. Not worth the 60 euros per night.

We spent thankfully only 1 night here. The tiny room on the grouund floor was cramped and smelled bad. If the place has been renovated then I think they forgot about this room. For 65 euro a night is is not good value.There was no bath mat of shower curtain and the very old sink did not drain. There was one chair to sit on which was old and stained. The painting had not been completed and I could only dream of a TV like others have mentioned. The smell of stale cigarettes has permeated everything and my clothes are still smelling of it days later. We did not bother with breakfast .
I also woke up in the morning covered in bites but the window had not been open??
If there is nothing else available In this town go to Bayeux.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Spent 2 nights here during cycle tour of the Landing beaches. Great location and house very "french". Room and ensuite cleana nd comfortable, but unfortunately we could smell the host's cigarettes constantly and the room was v noisy due to it's close proximity to the road and the church bells! The most expensive place we stayed , to say the room rate did not include breakfast. But the room did have a TV, which other B and B rooms seem not to have

M. Jacques is very accommodating. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. French breakfast was simple but fresh. Easy walk to town and beach sites.
By French standards a fine place. If your standards are U.S., note that floors creak and animals may be found in the house. I love that so not a problem for me.

We were booked to stay one night in the Myosotis room. The proprietor didn't open up the adjoining bedroom for the children to use as in previous posts, instead they had to double up on the sofa bed. Whilst the bed and bathrooms have fairly large floor areas, standing room is actually quite limited because of the steeply sloping ceilings. The proprietor didn't admit to speaking much English (and yes I do speak other languages, but unfortunately no French), he smoked strong smelling cigarettes and there was a delay in checking out as he was using the computer for a spot of on-line gambling. The B&B was in a good location, close to the beaches and town centre. The room was clean, there was a sink, fridge, kettle and hob, table and chairs. We didn't expect a warm welcome in France so our buoyant holiday mood was unaffected. This was only the first night of a 4 week trip and things got a lot better.

Jacques is a very obliging host,we had the flat at the top of the house which seemed like good value as the children had their own room.The Church bell is close to the building and the seven o clock "greeting the day "chiming"is a very loud though if bells are your thing you will love it.
Arromanche is a great and welcoming place.

We stayed here for two nights. We stayed in the Myosotis room. We had two adults and two teenage boys. Plenty of room and a huge bathroom. The owner, Jacques was wonderful. Both mornings he fixed breakfast for us in his kitchen while we sat and listened to him talk about Arromanches and Normandy. He also provides room service. He provides internet service on a computer in the front room. He was fluent in English. Arromanches is a very small village but with good restaurants and on the coast with beautiful views. This was the largest harbor right after the D-day invasion. There is a good museum here along with remnants from the artificial harbor still in the water.
