For the most part just an average hotel that is conveniently located in Caen,and easy to get to the D-Day beaches with a car. The rooms are small but quiet. The breakfast provided is nothing special, and the spa is not available without an appointment and a fee. The dining room, however, was FABULOUS! The service and the food were... More

The first night they accommodated be in a stunning room. On asking whether it'd cost me to stay another night they said EUR 108. When the next morning I agreed, they moved me to a much tinier and tired room in the annex, charging me EUR 135 instead. The fitness equipment is incredibly archaic.

Spent a week there for the D Day landing festival, the hotel is in a very old building with no elevator, I stayed in the second floor. The room was small but it had enough space to shower, sleep and use the desk to work if needed, the room was super clean and all the furniture was newish. The staff... More

Very central location, easy to find. Basic rooms are very small by French standards, some with back alley views (we booked two rooms). Some mixup with the reservation. Some amenities, including the hotel's own mini-pool and sauna, are fee only. Parking is free but somewhat tight to maneuver. The hotel's hyped restaurant for us was a disappointment with decent but... More

Excellently located but the standard rooms are sub-standard for a 4 star hotel. We reserved the de luxe rooms four months prior to our visit, reconfirmed our arrival a week before the actual date, yet they were not available upon arrival. It, however, has a bar with excellent selection of liquors. The staff is not mastering English.

Bedroom are ok and the size is fine, the night price does not include their mini spa (mini swimming pool, mini sauna, mini Hamam), staff is friendly! Hotel has its own parking for free! About their restaurant, the chef is also the owner of the hotel, cute food, nothing pretentious, quite good, and the gastronomic menu is very affordable!

Me and my partner did not stay here we wanted to use the spa facilities. The day we went we couldn't get in but they were extremely helpful in supplying us with more info for another down the road which was fabulous. Thank you to the receptionist and chef who helped and made our day

This is not a spa hotel and for 100 euros a night it needs to stop pretending it is, you had to book the swimming pool etc 30mins before you use it? What? Come on? If it said that on website we wouldn't have used it. The room was fine if a little dated, it was quiet and beds were... More

Lovely small hotel with friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Food at breakfast and in the restaurant is superb. Hotel is located in view of the amazing Chateau and is close to the city centre, within easy walking distance of many sights. If arriving by Ferry, the bus from the port stops just a few minutes walk away. I would definitely... More
