“Very close to ferry terminal, quiet, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Probably about 5 mins drive from terminal, very quiet, in good condition and clean, comfortable rooms, with free fast wifi, and good beds. Breakfast was good, choice was good, service ok. Restaurant, quite expensive but good choice and well presented, generous portions and very tasty. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on the road side were fairly quiet, presume away from the road, quieter still.

Easy to find from the ferry, small clean bedroom, don't bother with the breakfast, did not see any staff to help with the breakfast.
The hotel is ideal to visit Sword Beach and other beaches. I suppose for what you pay for this hotel it's not bad.

We stayed here after disembarking the ferry so we could be ready to travel the following morning. It's only a 5 min drive from the terminal. The receptionist was very helpful. The hotel is quite modern, with lovely colours and furnishings. The room was the same. Modern with wall mounted flat screen tv. The channel choice was not so good. Tea/ coffee facilities( just enough for one each). Nice large shower. Had great nights sleep. The bed was very comfy and the rooms very quiet. Breakfast was buffet style with hot and cold options of a good standard. Checkout very quick. We have stayed at the Ibis Styles before which was nice but I would definitely choose this one again.

I have stayed here before and when we arrived late evening after a long journey the staff were polite, promt and had us in our room in minutes. Very comfy rooms, the hairdriers are great for drying bike gear :-). I would use again if in that part of the world.

Can't say anything bad about this hotel. Perfect location,great staff,superb nights sleep. My only criticism(small) is the price of the bar drinks - why not charge the same price as the bars in town - it would encourage people to drink/eat at the hotel.

We stayed in the hotel on the way back from SW France as a stopover before taking the 08:30 from Oiustreham.

The hotel is conveniently placed just off the main road into Ouistreham coming from the Caen direction. The hotel has its own free car park and is clean and looks recently refurbished. We did arrive about 20:30 and were looking forward to just relaxing there with a meal in their restaurant. However, the restaurant was closed - Easter Monday!

The hotel partially redeemed itself through their receptionist who was very friendly and helpful and guided us into the town where there are a number of good restaurants to choose from, where we found a little gem , "Le Roulis" - but arrive before 21:00!
