“A favoiurite hotel and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We've stayed here 3 or 4 times in the past and the hotel and restaurant never cease to impress. On this occasion we stayed a single night for ourselves and my mother-in-law. The rooms are crisply clean with quality supplies (soap, towelling robe etc.) and comfortable beds. The staff are all charming and very helpful. The hotel is beautifully situated on the river estuary with a view to the sea. In fine weather, which we had on this occasion, the views are lovely.

The Michelin star awarded to the restaurant is well deserved and is the reason we like staying here so much on our way to other parts of France.

Perched on the corner of the harbour over looking glorious sea views - can't go wrong here.
Simply the hotel is stylish, quite minimalist, comfortable, clean, airy. Great location afew shops right on the door step, but in the late evenings, if you have a room on the street side you will hear cars passing, people talking through the night. Rooms have great showers, safes, fridges, TV, hair dryers & ironing board + iron. Great balconies with either full views of the sea, or partial if on the front of hotel. Beds were super comfy!
Restaurant was super very chic. Meals were wonderfully prepared & presented - tastefully & tasty! Good Wine is expensive but it's France! Staff are very helpful & very polite.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel & would most definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Don't really think you could be disappointed with any room.

My husband and I spent a night at this hotel before catching the Cherbourg to Poole ferry next day.
We had a very clean, comfortable and modern room, and enjoyed the 55 Euro dinner in the Restaurant. The food was excellent, and lovely atmosphere. Afterwards we sat on the terrace and watched the tide come in. We did not have breakfast as we felt it was rather expensive at 33 Euro for a couple, and I do not want a big breakfast.
We cycled all around the area, and really enjoyed the scenery. Unfortunately it was low tide, and the sea goes out miles. We would certainly return to this hotel again.

Room Tip: We booked through Booking.com and paid 100 Euro room only. We overlooked the street, as we did not t...

This is a very stylish hotel indeed, and we've stayed in some of the finest, all over the world. We had a stunning room with a panoramic view over the estuary, the opposite island of Barneville, and the sea, that ran from the bathroom and across two sides of the room, with floor to ceiling windows. Two separate terraces gave us different perspectives. The room was very modern, and very comfortably and stylishly appointed.

My wife is a vegetarian, which we informed the hotel before our arrival. We ate in the restaurant for the two nights we stayed, and my wife had the best vegetarian meals she's ever eaten - in France! Chef Lauren Cesne prepared two completely different tasting menus for her, and proved that in the hands of a master vegetables are no obstacle to preparing stunning food . Choices for vegetarians are so often unimaginative and limited; this set the bench mark for us for what is possible. My non-vegetarian dinners were also sensational, and the service was impeccable.

This hotel is delightful, the staff were very friendly and extremely professional, and we look forward to seeing them again next year.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the estuary are, of course, the ones to go for if you want a stunning view.

First visit for some years after a disappointing meal.
Hotel has been refurbed to a good standard, evening meal was very good, pricey but worth it.
Breakfast also very good, relaxed service, no rush to check out on time, enjoy your breakfast!
Exactly as expected, not an everyday venue but great for a personal special occasion.

My wife and I have have stayed at this modern & clean Hotel on many occasions whilst visiting from England. We have eaten each time and find the food impeccable. Now we live in SW France, sadly its not near us anymore. However, we planned our annual visit to the UK this year by car, with a detour to revisit la Marine after 5 years...
It was a delight again. The staff are courteous, efficient and make a kind effort to speak English at once (sparing them my terrible French no doubt!). Having owned a restaurant ourselves (and indeed still cooking avidly for our B&B clients), we adore the creations of Laurent Cesne. Truly a gastronomic experience. Despite other reviewers who (obviously) do not appreciate that cooking of this calibre comes in smaller, more concentrated portions, we found ourselves quite fully satisfied after both having the 54€ menu - not at all expensive for a Michelin-starred restaurant. If rating this place was based entirely on food - it would be excellent.
However, there remain a few minor (though not serious) points to the accommodation side. The shower is not user friendly, being bereft of any sort of wall-fixing, although the bathrooms are beautifully presented and equipped. Noisy staff 'traffic' above our room around 7 am was a little 'unsympathetic' to sleepers and perhaps staff should be coerced to move more lightly at that hour. The rather unpleasant odour of the estuary when tide is out is beyond their control, though nonetheless an invasive problem at times. We did not take breakfast at 32€ extra for the two of us - that is too steep for morning food, sorry.
However small these minor 'niggles' are; this establishment as a whole, is perfect for spoiling oneself and experiencing expertly crafted food!
Bravo la Marine et bon continuation - à prochain!!

Room Tip: The sea views, although stunning, do present themselves to the 'tide-out' odour(!) Keep the...

Room Tip: A room with a balcony is essential especially in fine weather
