Our family stayed for four nights earlier this month, my husband and I in one room, our two teenaged daughters next door, and had a very positive experience. The rooms are maybe a bit cramped by American standards but probably good sized by European standards. Most importantly, everything was spotless and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and had a nice selection at a reasonable price. The host was hugely helpful with tour info, bus tickets, and local information. We particularly enjoyed between able to help ourselves to a hot drink in the afternoon after our sightseeing. The only concern we had was quite a bit of noise from the street and bar below on Fri and Sat nights. Our host had warned us to keep our windows closed, but we were in the middle of a heat wave and there was no air conditioning so we had to have them open. On the weeknights, the area was quite quiet. The location is perfect, a five minute walk to the castle, a large variety of shops and restaurants, and bus stops. It's a 10 or 15 minute walk to the Abbaye des Hommes. We liked being on the pedestrian area and the weekend open air market. I highly recommend and I'd stay here again. My only suggestion is that they add a towel hook on the bathroom door as there is nowhere to hang a wet towel.

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.

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.
