“Nicely decorated but very noisy”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Whilst it was by no means an unpleasant stay - very nicely decorated old house along a very quaint street, a nice breakfast of croissants, brioche, jams and fresh fruit, a helpful hostess (Josette), immaculate bathrooms, tea, coffee and fresh water in the rooms - the age of the house meant that we were kept awake for hours at night due to the incredibly squeaky floor boards and thin walls. Unfortunately we were able to hear the guest in the room upstairs reproducing their dinner (!!) followed by continual loo flushing. The compact nature of the rooms meant that in the height of summer they were quite hot but with the window open to encourage airflow we were treated to lots of motorbikes and noise from the street.

The price we paid made us expect a more comfortable stay so we would probably wouldn't go back but saying that, it's a great location and you won't be desperate to leave.

Au Grey is an authentic fisherman's house. It is extremely quircky, uses its space very cleverly and to the maximum. Its location is very quiet, being tucked up a side street, yet only five minutes walk to the lively harbour.

We booked the smaller of the bedrooms and were not disappointed. It was extremely comfortable and provided us with everything we needed. The bathroom had the most incredible power shower, that was totally unexpected.

If you are looking for a modern, sleek hotel then Au Grey is not for you. However, if you want to experience the 'real feel' of Honfleur, then you could do a whole lot worse.

Josette was a delightful, welcoming host and extremely interesting to talk to. She recommended restaurants to us where the local people eat - there can be no finer recommendation can there? She also recommended places for us to visit outside of Honfleur which would suit our interests and we were not disappointed. Breakfast was delicious and the home-made tea bread was truly scrumptious.

We love Honfleur with its narrow winding streets, arts & crafts shops and the abundance of history that oozes from everywhere. If you are prepared to allow yourself to step back in time and 'feel' the vibe and history of years gone by, then by its very nature, Au Grey fits the bill perfectly.
