This was our 5th stay at this hotel, again booked as a package with Brittany Ferries, and – unsurprisingly - we had a similar experience to previous years in that it proved a handy base for exploring Normandy. The staff we met were all once again polite, helpful and friendly.
This time we were placed in room number 221 (which we’ve had once before). This room has restricted head space owing to the fact that it’s located in the roof area, so the outer wall slopes inwards. The en-suite has a shower, which is accessed via a fairly narrow door and a step. Some people may find these spatial limitations irritating. We were able to cope with care but we still suffered an occasional knock. The room has a flat screen TV and basic beverages were provided, although the mini-bar (fridge) was missing, presumably broken. There were adequate storage options for our three night stay. Sadly, on this occasion, the bed sagged and my wife ended up with a very sore and uncomfortable back after 3 nights.
The hotel offers free WiFi, which we were able to pick up in our room, but depending on your device’s cache settings, you may need to enter your details on each separate log-in.
The first floor breakfast room benefitted from any early morning sun and the buffet style breakfasts gave a reasonable choice of food. We did use the hotel restaurant one evening and the food, drink and service were adequate, but the cost was much higher than in town.
Last year for the same deal we had a nicer room overlooking the pool, with a balcony and without the restrictions of this year’s one. If you add to this the fact that this time the bed gave my wife with a very sore trip home, we were less satisfied than on our previous stays.
Whilst, overall we still feel this hotel offers reasonably good value hotel for the price we paid, it seems not all rooms are equal and it’s pot-luck as to which one you’ll be allocated. We may return here, but next time we will have another look at other venues in the area.
