Bedroom are ok and the size is fine, the night price does not include their mini spa (mini swimming pool, mini sauna, mini Hamam), staff is friendly! Hotel has its own parking for free! About their restaurant, the chef is also the owner of the hotel, cute food, nothing pretentious, quite good, and the gastronomic menu is very affordable!

Me and my partner did not stay here we wanted to use the spa facilities. The day we went we couldn't get in but they were extremely helpful in supplying us with more info for another down the road which was fabulous. Thank you to the receptionist and chef who helped and made our day

We checked into this hotel in April 2016 with the Tarif of 126 euro per night. Bit expensive we thought for a Best Western but checked in for 1 nite regardless. Once in the room we booked 2 more nites through a discount website. Checked with the gentlemen on the desk if he has received the booking and he said...

This is not a spa hotel and for 100 euros a night it needs to stop pretending it is, you had to book the swimming pool etc 30mins before you use it? What? Come on? If it said that on website we wouldn't have used it. The room was fine if a little dated, it was quiet and beds were...

Lovely small hotel with friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Food at breakfast and in the restaurant is superb. Hotel is located in view of the amazing Chateau and is close to the city centre, within easy walking distance of many sights. If arriving by Ferry, the bus from the port stops just a few minutes walk away. I would definitely...

We stayed here in January and had a lovely time - it would usually be a little outside our budget but circumstances allowed us to go there :) The breakfast wasn't included in the price of the room, which for over 120 euros per night I might have expected, and the wifi cut off every 2 hours, which was somewhat...

Stayed here on weekend break. More up market than my normal choices but worth every cent! Arrived early but room was available already. If you want to make tea or coffee in your room ask for a plateau de courtoisie freely given by courteous and friendly staff Our deal included breakfast which was lovely. Fresh apple juice from local farm,...

Perfect hotel with really tidy rooms, well equipped, ultra clean and comfortable. We were made very welcome and our room was at the back so very quiet and a tranquil outlook over neighbouring houses. This is city centre so don't expect acres of gardens! Was only there one night so we opted to eat in the hotel which was the...

Stayed at this hotel whilst in Caen for a conference. Staff very friendly and helpful even when we wanted omelettes at 10 pm! Comfortable room. Situated in a central location. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed here in September when we came to see the Normandy Beaches, was a great hotel in the heart of Caen and only a 20 minute walk to the Memorial. The hotel is also just around the corner from the castle (although this was closed when we were there). The rooms were clean and tidy, the bed was very...
