“Excelent location, an enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2010

Loking for an hotel for one night we stayed for three. The location of the hotel is excelent.
Whilst the hotel facilities are basic, the room was clean and tidy. The couple running the hotel couldn't have been nicer and were very helpful; their English was much better than our French. The restaurant was very good, the menu was modest but augmented by daily specials and the quality of the food and wine were first class. I think for the first time ever we didn't leave the hotel for our evening meal. I would highly recommend this hotel to the budget traveller and to the rest say give it a try; you won't regret it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2007

After the Allies bombed 95%(yes 95%) of St Lo to the ground, the whole of the town was rebuilt, and the walled section is a bit characterless. They also failed to build hotels in the walled town and it was only by chance that I stumbled on this operation which has no stars.
Situated next to the prefecture, it is quiet apart from the clock on (whats left of) the church of Notre Dame, which mercifully is turned off betwween 8 in the evening and 8 in the morning.
I was the only person staying, and the welcome was quite friendly(no English) There was a lively lunch party in the restaurant, which then closed for the evening which was a disappointment, as the walled town contains many brasseries but only one proper restaurant.
My room was a mixture only occuring in France, a new wood floor , a new bed,a new fire door, a new bathroom,new windows but the rest, well,unfinished. It had a double bed and a TV with no remote, not too much of a problem.
The hotel was run by a couple, obviously trying to improve the standards, good luck to them, I am sure they will suceed.
Breakfast fresh and good quality. The restaurant menu was keenly priced at €14 and €24, the €14 containing items such as feuiette d'escargots a creme de L'ail, as an appetiser, the sort of item not obtainable in the rest of town by my observations.
So for the price paid, and for its central location, it was a good choice, more suited to the budget traveller than the tourist seeking somewhere comfortable with ambiance
