This is our second trip to Omaha Beach so it certainly isn't 'bad' in any sense. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are more than adequate, although ours was lacking in hangers when we arrived and the air-com wasn't working both issues were quickly resolved.
Breakfast is fine. Pretty standard French breakfast but with the option of scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage for UK tastes.
Dinner wasn't special but, for the money, probably about adequate (just).
So....whats the problem? Its all 'ok' but you don't get any feeling that its special and, once you add in golf and dinner, it's not cheap.
It's also very popular with groups, both golfing and those visiting the war-sites/beaches/cemetaries etc. This is fine but groups can be (and were) loud, including one American group which insisted on 'whooping and hollering' late one night. Sadly (as is all too common now) the hotel did..............absolutely............NOTHING about it.
The golf however is excellent. Both courses are outstanding and the (so-called) lesser Manoir course is, in my view, probably more fun to play...not easier though. There are some tough carries from the tee! Both courses are in top class condition.
