You will quickly realize how well located is this hotel, but in my experience the best was the service: the courtesy at the front desk, the room service, at the excellent gastronomic restaurant, also a very good massage at the spa. Very good spot in Caen for a few days

Stayed here on a deal from Britney Ferry. Room 306 was newly refurbished, compact but highly functional. Nice bathroom with shower, no tub but that worked for us. Everything was spotlessly clean. Bed very firm but comfortable. Staff (other than desk person) were friendly and helpful.Their limited English + our limited French got us by. One gripe is while the...

I stopped for two nights, second night I needed to meet a business colleague to wrap up after a client visit only to find a car abandoned midway in the car park, that you cannot entirely blame the hotel but the fact the staff refused to do anything from 8am until after midnight yes you can say these guys do...

Staff friendly and helpful. Did not eat in hotel, so cannot comment about food, the bar was however extremely overpriced. Parking was free but very very tight ( have broken backlight to prove!). The charge for using the spa was unexpected therefore did not use. The weather was very warm so did not sleep as there was no air-con. Location...

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...

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...

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...

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!
