We stopped at this hotel for one night only.
It was a bit difficult to find as the town centre seemed to be one way roads and we were obviously missing the right turns to get near.
I had to abandon the car and my wife and go on foot to look for it.
Once found the man on the desk, not sure if he was owner was very polite, very informative.
The room was spotless, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom excellent.
The breakfast was good.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone stopping near this area.

Our train from Paris arrived three and a half hours late (French...Trains; enough said), and we had to wake our hosts up to get in. (Thank goodness our cab driver (it was a five minute ride, but he still managed to pack in a mini-tour of Caen) waited until we were sure we could gain entrance.) Having said that, our hosts were warm and accommodating, even for our middle of the night arrival. The room was super clean, and the bathroom spacious, but the shower/ tub was incredibly slippery (in our overtired state). We had a "family room" and the accommodations were simple, but way more than adequate! Our kids slept on what they said was "The most comfortable pull out ever."

Lovely French breakfast, including the best coffee my husband has had since reaching French shores. :)

Our host and hostess took extra time to go over with us our planned itinerary (which included the beaches of Normandy), helped us with our bags on the two flights of stairs, and arranged for the cab to pick us up and connect us with our rental car. They could not have been more accommodating!

If we are ever lucky enough to be in Normandy again, we would most certainly stay here for a convenient overnight.

We only spent one night here but it has been the best of our trip. The rooms are clean and just the right size. The bathroom shower was perfect after a long hot day of sightseeing. The owners helped us with restaurant choices and directions as well as information about where and how to park the car. The breakfast was delicious and generous at a very reasonable price. There is no air conditioning which I did not realize so if that is important, you may want to choose another location. I would definitely come here again.

Thank you very much Nell. The hotel completely renoved is situated in city center. We propose a local buffet breakfast with home made cake, home made yogurt, pastries with Iisigny butter, apple juice from farm, .... Hopefully, there isn't many time with heat wave in Normandy.

A warm welcome was given by our charming hosts who helpfully advised us about restaurants and parking. Our room was very clean and comfortable with an excellent bathroom and breakfast was good too. Perhaps the only disadvantage for some might be the flights of stairs involved which made carrying luggage taxing.

This is a very nice hotel hotel in a central part of town .Zoe and Matthew do a great job of making you feel really welcome and providing 5 star service.

If you are in Caen or the surrounding area this is the place to experience warm French hospitality.
