We spent one night at this hotel while touring D-Day beaches. We reserved 2 rooms - one triple sea-view room with 1 double bed and 1 twin, and one double sea view room. We received exactly what we requested. The rooms were clean, simple and met expectations. Our expectations weren't super high for this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. Our beds were comfortable but we did have to sleep with the windows open as there was no A/C. But the sea air was nice so we weren't hot. There was no bath tub in either room, only showers. This is not a complaint but if I was staying longer, I would have preferred a tub with my 3 year old. I also recommend bringing your own toiletries. The toiletries consisted only of a small bar of soap and little packets of body wash/shampoo. We easily parked in the museum lot across the street and because we left after 9am, there was a small charge - only a couple euros. Other reviews complain about the parking, but if you use the suggested museum parking lot, it's super easy. I did have to call the hotel to find it while driving in as we couldn't get there with our GPS, but the staff easily and happily talked me through the directions in English. In hindsight, I think I would have had better luck if we programmed the museum into the GPS since that is where we parked. We also had a dinner reservation in their restaurant. We requested a table by the window and enjoyed a magnificent sunset. The food was amazing, though not cheap. We also had breakfast included. It was a simple breakfast consisting of coffee, tea, juice, cereal, croissants, hard-boiled eggs, ham, cheese, etc. I would stay here, as well as eat here, again. The staff was fantastic and helpful, and the views from the hotel were incredible. It was a perfectly charming way to relax after a day of D-Day activities. Note for kids, they also had a bucket of cute beach toys in the lobby if you have time to take advantage of the beach.
