Ibis is a hotel chain but this was not your average "Travelodge"!
Located in the fishing port of Port-en-Bessin-Huppain the hotel is located on one side of the quay with numerous restaurants and bars on the other.
It was a short walk over a bridge at the head of the harbour to all the restaurants but this adds to the charm of the location. Even on a cool, wet and windy September evening the lights of the port shone brightly and warmly.
The hotel was fine as a chain, with a 24 hour bar and a la carte food service; all the staff I met spoke excellent English, thankfully given my French is more than a little rusty! The only drawback was that the main car park was a two minute drive to it's location, round a few back streets from the hotel even though it was well signposted, yet it was linked directly to the hotel via a small walkway from a hill that overlooked the hotel.
Another possible problem is that if you have a room at the front of the hotel you may be disturbed by some noise from the fishing port which is working day and night.
But these are really nothing when you look at the charm of this pretty port and the history of the local area.
