“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2008

We found this small hotel to be absolutely charming in all respects, with attentive service, immaculately clean facilities and great food. The location is so quiet and rural, and with ample parking it is actually more convenient than staying in town (which we cycled to every morning taking around 20 minutes - or 5 mins in car). We dined in the restaurant on one evening and it was first classand offered really good value for money.
We stayed in a nice bedroom, which was very sparsely decorated but incredibly clean and functional, which suited us down to the ground. We have stayed in Honfleur before in much more expensive guesthouses, but will not waste our money in future - we would definitely return to this charming house.

I stayed there due to occasion of a business trip in the area. I was very impressed from the very fresh decoration of the room, that I called minimal rustic.
A great advantage was the wireless free internet
On Wed and Thursday the restaurant is close for dinner, so we did not had time to check the food there, but checking the menu, I found very interesting to taste it, next time

Estelle and her husband that surpervise your stay arrange everything to have a nice time and really they do a great job.
Try to meet their son, Felix, who is very adorable and sociable.

It was a nice expereince to stay for 4 days there and for sure I will return back next year.

We enjoyed 2 nights in this lovely countryside alternative to staying in the midst of Honfleur. It is a 5 minute drive outside Honfleur in a charming rural location. The hosts are very friendly and speak excellent English. Spacious comfortable rooms. Both the meal and the accomodation are very good value for money. We appreciated the free wireless internet access.

We chose La Fraichette at the last minute for a week-end getaway in Normandy, and were very happy with it. It's about a 5-minute drive outside of Honfleur, in a large restored house in peaceful, green surroundings. We had a room in the new wing that the owners (a friendly but discrete young couple) have added. It seemed like we were the first people to use the room, as all the higher-end IKEA furnishings and quality bathroom fittings were all brand new. The room was very spacious for French standards, and had double doors leading out to a private patio with deck chairs. There was an individual heating unit and colour TV. Breakfast is served is the hotel's restaurant, which does dinner as well ( we went to a place on the port of Honfleur instead).
For those who like to sleep-in, check out time is a bit harsh - 10 am on Sunday.
There's an abandoned factory works across the field from the house, and a little babbling stream running between the two. We personally found the scenery picturesque. When you reserve, however, ask if the demolition of the site has started - the owners mentioned that was going to happen soon...this shouldn't be a problem on the week-end, but might be annoying for those staying mid-week.

  • Liked — The brand new furnishings in the room and sparking cleanliness. Even though a very small property, it offered the privacy and discretion of a hotel
  • Disliked — 10 am check-out time
