My husband and I stayed at Le Castel Nobel Guesthouse in early October. We did not have a GPS with us and could not find the B&B. We did find a tourist information center that gave us directions. We found the guesthouse, but it was too early to check in, so we drove around the town. It was raining when we got back to check in. There was a sign on the door to go to another location to check in. I would have throught that if their check in time was 2:30, someone should be there. In the pouring rain we went to the other location to find someone, then came back to the guesthouse. We checked in and told the young man, that when we were at the visitors center, they would not make reservations for us to tour Normandy, but said that the hotel operators would need to do it for us. He seem somewhat iritated with that. Not sure if it was with us, or with the center. He did get a tour for us.
Our room was on the third floor. Spacious size compared to the small one in Paris. The bath was good size and clean also. Very good location. However it wasn't very warm and welcoming. Not allowed to use the front door, no luggage inside, must use the side door. When I travel outside the US I try to learn a few phrases and helpful words in the language of the country I visit. Madame went on and on in French and didn't seem the least interested in saying anything in English....not even Thank you when we checked out.
