“Very Basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

The location is very good (50m from the beach) and there is a supermarket just across the street. The downside is the the room is very basic: It is a bit small, the ground rooms are 4m away from the parking area. You have to manually hod the shower tab while taking a shower. There was no Internet connection in the hotel for 3 days while we were there, and for me that was unacceptable. The breakfast is very minimal

We got there at about 10.00 pm due to the ferry times, the reception was closed but there was a number to ring. We were told that the key was in the door, which turned out to be the case. The room doors go straight onto the external balcony which is a layout that I have not come across before. The room was basic with rather old fashioned furniture. It was en suite and had tea and coffee making facilities which was welcome. It was clean and a reasonable size. Car parking was very good as you can see your car below from the balcony. The breakfast was possibly the most minimal I have ever had. There was juice, tea/coffee, one croissant and jam. Not ideal for those that prefer the 'full English'. The dining room decor was pleasant as were the waitresses. It is in the main town so the restaurants etc are only a 2 minute walk away.

Room Tip: I think that all the rooms are pretty much the same at this place.

This is a motel not a hotel. On arrival at the allocated time the place was closed with a notice showing a telephone number to ring . Our party of four had english based mobiles and
consequently had difficulty with the code given. Eventually we were connected and told our room numbers which were open with the keys inside! This is not what i would expect from a hotel - no reception. The rooms were small dark with a door leading onto the car park and very basic but were cleaned to a good standard each day. The breakfast was held in the cafe attached and consisted of bread jam croissant tea/coffe and fruit juice.. This was at a cost of 65Euros per person per night not good value!

The Location made up for the lack of everything else

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the D-Day beaches. The parking is tight but good. It's near a small market, as well as the restaurants, boulangeries, etc. And of course the beach is within walking distance. The hotel operator does not speak a lot of English, but with our very minimal French we were able to communicate with no problems.

We were very pleased with this hotel. Found it as we drove past and it was 65 euros (breakfast included) for a lovely first floor double room, elegantly furnished, very clean with great bathroom. Good car parking, close to centre of town, friendly reception and a generous breakfast with offers of more baguette and coffee. Highly recommend it.
