Finding the parking was bit tricky but we managed it with the signs eventually and it's a fabulous place for motorbikes as it's in a secure underground location underneath the hotel. Watch the head height though it's a bit low! Reception was excellent, very helpful and chatty every time we went past. Location is super with easy access to the... More

A great location (with parking if you are brave enough to follow the signs) and with great staff. We were received very well and had great conversations at the bar with very welcome Single Malts in generous measures to satisfy this Scot! Highly recommended.

An excellent hotel. Very centrally place with good walking access to all amenities. Reception was excellent. Very friendly, efficient and helpful. The rooms were good - everything that you needed. Despite being in the centre of town it was very quiet. Breakfast was excellent. Car parking is available - once you find it !

Staff here are so helpful just ask. location is handy for driving around Normandy not difficult to to ring road and reasonably priced car park (republique) just around the corner. Tip parking at Republique between 20.00 and 10.00 ish is about half the price of the hotels car park.

We stayed here for three nights. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with advice on transportation and anything we needed. The Hotel itself was nice and everything was satisfactory, however the hallways were very dark. There were some switches on the walls, but we never figured them out. (Seemed like the hallway & stairway lights... More

Thank you for giving such a nice review about our hotel. We are happy that you enjoyed our stay. Regarding the lightins, we used to leave them lit 24h/7 but for environmental and economic concerns, we opted for a system where the lights stay on only during the evening and at night.
