“Friendly, comfortable B&B”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

We stayed at Arroplace in September for 3 nights. It felt like a home from home. The host, Jacques, was always friendly and helpful. It was quiet so we could park in the space by the guest house. The location was ideal; right in the heart of things, by the beach and next to the museum.
The room was spacious and clean, with large windows which overlooked the beach and museum. All restaurants and bars are within a 1 minute walk.
The free wifi was a bonus. We didn't pay extra for breakfast because there's a little bakery nearby which you can buy tasty pastries from and we ate these in our room (the room had a table and chairs).
Arromanches is well placed for interesting trips to the other D-Day beaches and Bayeux.

Jacques and Annie treated us like family during our visit. Jacques provided us free parking, access to the fridge in his garage and even did our laundry when we asked where a laundromat was located. Access to the Internet is available at no charge on site and the wireless worked fine. It is a great location for touring the D-Day beaches, with Caen and Bayeux short drives approximatley 40-45 minutes away. Our family had a great room with a view of the English Channel, the kids having their own privacy. It was a great stay with them and would return again in a moment. We highly recommend it.

We were recomended this place by another b&b in the area that was fully booked and we are so glad that we took the advice. The host Jacques really is a great guy, he really makes you feel welcome. His place is well maintained, and is situated almost in front row to the beach, our room allthough a bit small had everything you could want including a picture perfect view of the artificiel harbour.

I would clearly recomend this place to anyone

Stay away from the restaurant: " le petite assiettes" at the mulberry hotel though,

You can't ask for a nicer host than Jacques. He is a total sweetheart. He will make you feel like family, beginning with coming out to the parking lot to collect your luggage and carrying to your room. He leaves a computer available to guests. He provides daily weather forecasts and gives advice on not-to-miss sights. Every room at Arroplace has an ocean view. There is no street noise. There is free parking overnight on the Musee de Debarquement (D-Day landings museum). Jacques also has parking on his property. This was our base for all the D-Day sights. It is in the middle of it all. East of us were the British beaches: Gold, Juno and Sword. West of us was Omaha, Utah, Pointe du hoc, St. Mere Eglise, and the American Cemetery. Great stay!

Arroplace is a friendly B&B superbly placed in Arromanches by the beach and close to both the D-Day Museum and the shopping street. Our room - and the whole house - was nice and our ensuite got serviced each day. Our beds were comfortable. And when my laptop could be online the holiday was perfect.

  • Liked — The friendly landlords
  • Disliked — The WiFi signal was a bit too weak
