A true gem of a Hotel, set in a narrow street in Honfleur, who could know how wonderful this Hotel is? At first, it is very tricky to get there, up a tiny narrow road, but Francoise is on hand to help and guide you! Parking is about 100 yards away, but you may not need the car for a day or so.
The Hotel is, quite simply, stunning. An eclectic mix of Oriental and traditional French, with superb interior spaces, especially the small conservatory area. The Courtyard is so beautiful, pray you get good weather so that you can have your breakfast served outside. Otherwise, the Hotel's lobby and bar are transformed with snowy tablecloths, and you are all dotted around having breakfast indoors!
Our room, 8, has a private terrace, and that is why we went for it. It is small, but the terrace makes it worthwhile. The decor is lovely, but the mixer taps in the shower are demonic to adjust! That is a minor niggle. I didn't even mind burning my foot.
It is everything you could want from a hotel. Centrally located, clean and beautifully furnished. As for breakfast, it was a superb collation of bread, home made jams, and each day a little treat. Baked apple, rice pudding, and a pot au chocolate on the days we were there. You can request a cooked option of eggs as well.
But what makes it a cut above is Francoise and his team. They are helpful yet unobtrusive, and Francoise has perfected the art of being laid back and friendly which puts you at ease straight away. Look out for the Cameos in the bar` they have a story, and it is very sad that the man who created this amazing Hotel died without having seen it become such a success.
This is a wonderful experience and I urge you to go.
