    The hotel is old and quaint but no air conditioning.

    The hotel proprietor was extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed on the night of the world cup final so most restaurants were closed. He gave us a map and marked where we would find ones that were open

    Cheap and cheerful and just the job for a convenient overnight stay.

    • Stayed 5 nights

    Lack of air conditioning was a problem during the hot weather when we were there. Windows needed to be left wide open to make the southerly aspect rooms bearable. This had the disadvantage of letting in the traffic noise of farm traffic and trucks in the early morning (04-30 onwards)

    Comfortable but small room with cramped shower/WC. The breakfast was good and the staff very friendly and patient with our attempts at the French language (the Google translate app proved essential). The locale is respectable but we availed ourselves of the private underground garage to house our motorcycles anyway. The strongest point of this hotel is its price.

    The furniture and facilities although clean were tired and the room was quite small and would have benefitted from a re-vamp. There were no tea/coffee making facilities. The TV was mounted high on the wall in a corner and in such a small room made it difficult to watch.

    The room was clean and tidy. Breakfast value for money. Very convenient for town center - 5 - 10 min walk. There was a fridge in the room.

    In our bedroom, the en suite bathroom was directly connected to the bedroom - there was no door between the bedroom and the bathroom - which made personal privacy a slight issue.

    Very clean and comfortable room with nice big bathroom with a window. Hotel centrally located and the town centre, magnificent cathedral and public gardens all within easy walking distance. Free parking at the front door of the hotel.

    Nothing, they even had a hose in the garage to clean ourselves down after a muddy cycle ride from Cherbourg on the Voie Verte.

    The property had a large secure garage for the safe keeping of our cycles. The staff, who spoke English, were friendly and accommodating, enabling an early check-in and suggesting places where we could find an evening meal as their restaurant was closed on the Sunday evening. We found Délices de lili 300m away and had an excellent meal - the owners speaking English really helped. The included continental breakfast was sufficient to get us on our way.

    The 'ensuite' was basically the room next door converted with 3 cubicles one each for the toilet,shower and basin, the rest of the room was empty except for a cupboard which had the hairdryer in it! I've never seen a room so bare and cold looking, no comfort, (although the bed wasn't bad) Having stayed in 5 hotels over last 5 nights in France & Spain this was definitely the worst!

    The location was good and the chap on the desk was very friendly and helpful, but sadly the room although clean was very,very basic.
