La Liniere
Ranked #22 of 72 Honfleur B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I lost the directions to La Liniere but managed to ask an elderly french lady who was toiling slowly up the hill from Honfleur 'where is the big house for b@b called 'Liniere'-and she knew straight away.
I'm not surprised -it is an imposing building standing near the top of a very steep hill.As we arrived I heard a piano playing [I hope it was Ravel or Debussy], then in answer to our tentative ring at the door a very charming French man greeted us most courteously and showed us to an equally charming bedroom.
The town was a short distance down the hill, teeming with tourists - a fascinating place that we will definitely be revisiting.
Back at La Liniere all was quiet and calm - our host's equally charming father invited us to have a late night drink in the garden, bringing out glasses and chair cushions.
The next morning we bid a regretful farewell -but not until I had [apparently] delighted host and other guests by playing the piano - Schumann on a beautiful blue-skied morning in France -what could be better!

Room Tip: We had the smallest room without a loo -other rooms are better equipped but probably a bit more expe...

We stayed 2 nights at La Liniere and very much enjoyed the hotel It is a property which could easily be featured in a magazine on interior design with imaginative use of colour and a wealth of antiques and interesting objects. Much more like a home stay than a hotel. Jean-Christophe went out of his way to be kind and helpful. The hotel is situated just outside Honfleur overlooking the town from a high view point. En route to the hotel it is possible to discover backstreets that you otherwise may not have cause to visit. One piece of advice - card payments were not possible at this time so make sure you have cash handy.

I stayed one night in La Liniere this summer. All house and rooms are beautifully decorated with antigues. The room was pretty spacious and well maintained. The bathroom seems newly renovated and very tidy and clean. All bread and cheese in breakfast were very fresh. I wish I could have a couple of days.

Another visit 1-3 July 2013. This is such a lovely house & owner, very helpful.We have been visiting almost every year since it first opened, always a pleasure. This time our family took it over - 2 babies + parents + grandparents. Great breakfasts. It's uphill on the hillside next to Hotel Monet, but c.half the price !), so very quiet. Bedrooms on 2nd floor.

Room Tip: Bergamote has extra single bed, so ideal for 3 people or 1 child.

We stayed at the La Liniere last weekend and highly recommend this BB. The owners are very pleasant and have made us feel at home and to ourselves. The house itself is beautiful, with a lovely setting and ambience. The rooms very perfect, clean, comfortable and cozy. The BB is a 5 minute walk from the centre and has parking in its property.

We recently stayed at La Liniere for two nights. The room was amazing, carefully restored and enormous. Jean-Christophe was slightly harried but very generous as a host. In addition to the beautiful property, we really like the price and location. It took us 5 minutes to walk into downtown, perhaps 7 to return as it is located on the way out of town and up a hill. My only caution is perhaps about the stairs. I was happy to haul our bags up three flights of narrow stairs, but this might not be for everyone. Overall, we were happy to stay at La Liniere.

My family and I stayed there for 2 days in May 2012 during a tour of Normandy. La Liniere is not only a beautiful place that offers very comfortable accommodations, it is also a house with a lot of charm and soul, as reflected in the warmth and graciousness of the owners, Jean-Christophe and his wonderful father. We had reservations for only one night but were so comfortable that we decided to extend our stay, and they were extremely flexible in accommodating us. I stayed in Capucine and Agapanthe, and both rooms were charmingly decorated and the bathrooms well appointed with amenities like Le Petit Marseillais soaps and shampoo and even hair dryer. The breakfasts were exquisite, baskets of fresh croissants every morning (not microwave reheated) with tasty jams and coffee, served on Limoges. The house is on a secluded hill and so quiet one could hear birds sing. If you enjoy quiet and guest house with character and charm, look no further. Oh, and we also got free passes for the town museums.
