“Nice enough but......”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

...........whilst the fella who checked us in was pleasant enough and very happy to advise us, our stay was spoiled by the somewhat curt attitude of a certain staff member who was quick to announce ( without being asked) that we had arrived too late to order any food (at 20.45), and when we pointed out that we had been on the road all day and were very hungry, she suggested, whilst looking at her watch, that we might try the local town for something to eat - if we hurried. Just a few minutes later, after quickly dropping off our baggage, we hit the town, only to find that, at 20.50 on a Saturday evening, the place was literally deserted, and looking rather eerie in the evening light,( it seemed more like 5 o' clock on a summer Sunday morning.... ) and at the two establishments that we did find with customers inside, owners actually turned the cardboard signs on strings at the door to read "FERMÉ" when they saw us approach! It was like a scene out of some old Hammer movie, when the werewolf is on the loose! We returned to the hotel and inquired if there was somewhere nearby where we might be able to buy even a sandwich, perhaps a local shop or petrol station? Surprisingly,the hotel didn't offer to make any refreshments available at this point, (despite their brochures stating that "a cold plate" could be made available for guests after 9.00 pm) and the staff member went on to suggest we try the nearest 'Mac Do Naldz'. After some probing, we were informed that it was some 25 km away! So, with no other alternative, we had to drive 25km to Isigny-sur-mer. After the most expensive Maccy D of all time (€12 for 12 chicken nuggets - honestly!), we returned to the hotel and bought two similarly very expensive 50 cl beers, costing a whopping €12.50. To add insult to injury, we were very soon afterwards instructed to move outside the bar area and quickly finish our drinks as they were clearing up (at 22. 45) and would shortly be pulling down the shutter at the bar entrance. We had only seconds before blown the froth off the flippin' beers! The young lady who had ushered us out, very soon afterwards hopped in to a waiting car as we finished our drinks standing at the hotel entrance, and was whisked away into the evening by a young man, obviously a very close friend.
All in all, a very painful experience, at least wallet wise. Not at all very welcoming and a very poor example of that legendary French hospitality. Not good value, certainly not good service and ... at best, just about average accommodation. Very, very over priced for what it was. But we won't let it cloud what was an otherwise very pleasant trip through France. All the other hotels we stayed at prior to this rather disappointing experience at Logis St Mere Eglise were very good value and very comfortable. St Mere Eglise was the unwitting backdrop for one of the most historic events in the entire history of mankind. These days, it is a very sleepy backwater, with very overpriced souvenirs and tourist traps. Which is a great pity. As for catering for tourists...? Pffft! See the sites and jog on.

Room Tip: Try elsewhere.

Stayed here early April whilst working locally, found to be very clean and comfortable but a little compact. A bit noisy at night with doors banging etc., with guests comming and going. Restaurant ok, could do with a bit more variation. On the whole a very good budget hotel in a good location for sight seeing with plenty of history attached, ideal for ww2 enthusiasts.

Nicely located near the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise which is a good central base to visit the Cotentin. Hotel rooms are simple but comfortable. The breakfast is copious but a bit pricey. The hotel restaurant serve good food.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a double bed if that is what you want. There are a lot of room with twin beds.

Went for a 3 days trip again, just like every 2 years. As we expected the hotel had not changed and was again fabulous. Very nice staff, good food and simple but nice rooms ! Situated at a 5 minutes walk from the centre of Sainte Mère Eglise, private parking lot in front of the hotel. Even met some lovely Americans while staying. Allready my 4th time and surely planning a new trip for 2015 while staying in the same hotel ! Any questions ? contact me and I'll be happy to help you out on this !

Yes, this is definitely not a 5 star hotel. No, the building was not there before Henry IV visited Normandy with his brand new car.

This is the ideal place to stay when visiting the WWII beaches and the Normandy.

Rooms are nicely furnished, restaurant is quite nice and, moreover, the place is really quiet and peacefull. Not far from main road, this hotel is the ideal place for a short break as well as for a roadtrip accross normandy.

Warmly recommended is to take the "all inclusive" formula, with diner and breakfast on a buffet, both full filled with french local food.

The place to go when visiting this area !

As an amateur military historian, I recently stayed at the Logis Le St Mere, during a trip exploring the D-Day beaches and battlefields in Normandy. The hotel is ideally located for those visiting Utah Beach and the US Airborne landing zones, as well as being close to the other D-Day sites of interest. The US Airborne Museum in St Mere Eglise is less than half a mile away and well worth a visit. The hotel itself is readily accessible from the French AutoRoute system.

However, that is not all that this hotel has to offer; situated in pleasant countryside, it provides wonderful Norman hospitality: good food, good wine, excellent service and comfortable beds. I look forward to returning in the New Year.

Room Tip: Rooms on the East side (i.e. at the rear of the hotel) are quieter (but none is really noisy).
