We stayed one night at La Pecherie in late April 2011 and came away very impressed. At first glance we weren't sure about the hotel as the building is older and seemed a little rickety. The receptionist led us up to the top floor and down a hallway that we couldn't even stand up straight in, and we were really wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. Imagine our amazement when she opened the door and we saw our home for the night: a surprisingly large, very comfortable room with dormer windows and a fantastic view towards the beach! Everything was spotless and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom and shower were the biggest we had in any or our hotel rooms during our 2 week vacation in France, and there was plenty of hot water. We didn't watch TV at all, but the room was equipped with a very nice flat screen.
We decided to eat dinner that night at the restaurant downstairs, and the experience did nothing to dampen our enthusiasm about this hotel. It's not the cheapest place in town, but the food is excellent! My wife had the menu "Au fil des saisons" at 29 euros, and it was amazing. The meat dish came sizzling on top of a hot rock placed in her plate, and was incredible to look at as it tasted. My dessert included a mind-blowing fruit medley that came in a bowl made of apple slices held together with sugar. Amazing!
The hotel and area are very quiet and we had a great sleep. The only drawback I could imagine was that the floor was quite creaky. It didn't bother us any but I can imagine it may have been a little noisy in the room below us when we were walking around. Courseulles-sur-Mer is a sleepy little town. Even though we told them when we checked in that we would be leaving early in the morning, when we awoke at 7 am the place was dark, the front doors locked, and not a soul to be found anywhere. We were able to get out a side door to take our luggage to the car, but had to wait until 8 am for someone to show up so we could pay our bill!
All in all, it was a great little place to spend the night and I would not hesitate to stay here again if we ever make it back to Courseulles!
