“like coming home - the only place for bikers to stay in Normandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

just had a second trip here, and really enjoyed it again. This is the only place to stay for a great B and B in Normandy. Located in the centre of the village of Arromanches, it has a covered shed for bikes, great rooms with 2 or 3 beds, so for groups wanting to keep cost down this is good value, great english breakfast, with black pudding if wanted! Karen and Adrian are great hosts, very hospitable and relaxed and will chat to you and even get up to wave you off at 7am! There is a lounge with TV for chilling, free beer and wine to help you unwind, and the rooms are fascinating, all themed with loads of books to read, interesting trinkets and oddities festooning the walls. For the girlies each room has a hairdryer, and there is usually one english 3 pin plug socket. lots of places to eat at nearby, but remember the French don't eat particularly late.

We stayed one night in the "Bread Oven" room lovely character, helpful and friendly hosts and very tasty breakfast. Very conveniently situated in Arromanche, you can walk to the beach. Signpost to property small so unfortunately missed it the first time despite having the GPS co-ordinates - have now replaced the spectacles. Highly recommended and hope to visit again.

Room Tip: Bread Oven room feels like you are on a childhood adventure - total isolation.

This is a very good B&B and is well placed for exploring the second world war D day history. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped and as a bonus there is free beer and wine available! The English hosts, Adrian and Karen, are very welcoming and able to offer suggestions on places to visit.Good value for money and more interesting than staying in an impersonal hotel.

Having planned a weekend "Educational" motorcycle trip with my young son, a good friend and his young son we were really pleased with our choice of accommodation. Having had an early start to catch the ferry over the short ride up the coast to Arromanches was a joy topped by the warm welcome offered by Karen, a choice of a hot drink or cold beer before we,d even taken our helmets off......brilliant! This B&B caters for motorcyclist but was just as geared up for families, the boys certainly enjoyed it here...particularly breakfast.
The location of the B&B is great too, a 5 minute walk to the centre of the town, beach and D-Day museum. The rooms are comfortable, well presented and clean with very comfy beds. Even our motorcycles had somewhere to stay, the garaging facilities are ideal ,
We will definitely be back next year, just for a bit longer next time!!

Room Tip: The Ducati room was great for 4 of us with plenty of room for our motorcycle clothing, helmets and l...

I cannot say enough about Adrian and Karen! What accomodating, friendly people. This B&B was located in Arromanches, a mere 5 minute walk from the main part of town, the museum and the beach. The house was chock full of WWII memorabilia which was a real draw for my two boys and husband. The rooms were spacious and clean and there was nothing that they wouldn't do to accomodate us. They had a fridge stocked with wine and beer and a freezer full of ice cream! As Adrian and Karen are British, we were greeted every morning with a delicious full English breakfast including eggs, tomato, sausages, ham (or as they call it, bacon), baked beans and an array of breads, pasteries, cereals, homemade jams, coffee and tea. I was always full until late afternoon! Adrian was extremely knowledgeable about WWII and had some great stories to share. Once you arrive, you are truly part of the family! Breakfast is served at a huge wooden table where all of the guests can meet and talk for hours! You cannot find a more accomodating host and a more interesting B&B. It is great for families and in a terrific location. Oh, and of course, there was free WiFi! If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere, a clean room, an amazing breakfast and a chance to make some good friends, I highly recommend Normandy Beach. It is not your average B&B. It is great for families as well as couples and I cannot wait to return!

Nothing was too much trouble for Karen & Adrian. Great Internet connection. Great breakfast. Comfortable rooms and hospitable access to the guest fridge stocked with wine and beer. Lovely town and countryside in a well positioned base to visit the Normandy D-day landing breaches and the historic town of Bayeux. We stayed six nights and found plenty of things to do. Good local restaurants and facilities. Will definitely return.
