Lovely hotel, nice large room, lovely bathroom, breakfast - lovely selection, hotel easy to find, plenty of parking and loads of eateries near by. Near by churches and castle, and not too far to travel to mont st michel and bayeaux.

We stayed here for three nights. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with advice on transportation and anything we needed. The Hotel itself was nice and everything was satisfactory, however the hallways were very dark. There were some switches on the walls, but we never figured them out. (Seemed like the hallway & stairway lights...

Thank you for giving such a nice review about our hotel. We are happy that you enjoyed our stay. Regarding the lightins, we used to leave them lit 24h/7 but for environmental and economic concerns, we opted for a system where the lights stay on only during the evening and at night. Still, the guests can turn them on at...

Warm, welcoming efficient service. Enough English plus our smattering to get by. Room clean airy and comfortable. TV, plus Krups Espresso machine. Comfortable warm beds. View of small quiet square. To the left is defunct but impressive Chambre du Commerce building tastefully converted into English style pub/restaurant- good food and impressive proportions with beef burgers bigger than your head.

Stayed here one night while visiting Normandy which is just a short drive away. This Best Western was ore upscale than is typical of the chain in the US. Clean, well furnished, with a great breakfast buffet, I was very happy with these accommodations

This centrally located hotel is family run and quite small and cosy. Delightful reception with a compact bar, really thoughtfully decorated and comfortable rooms, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Really good place and would heartily recommend for anyone on any occasion.

I needed a hotel for one night in the Normandy region so my group could take a full day tour of the D-Day beaches. This hotel fit the bill. The value is great. Overall the property was clean and fairly new. I enjoyed the larger bathroom space (especially after the Paris hotels), and the bed was very comfortable. There is...

The staff were friendly, but for the late traveller arriving on a ferry it's easy to miss. The rooms are clean but very dark and quite small. The marketing pictures are accurate but well angled so what you see on the marketing materials is perhaps a little better than what you feel you've experienced. It felt a bit weathered certainly...

This is why I give it 2 instead any higher. First I have history Best Western in the states and it all has been good to great.

The hotel can be a little difficult to find since it is on the edge of a pedestrian only section of town. Otherwise the location is fine to explore the town. Close to major sites and restaurants.

Hotel has a good location but rooms are small and not made for American luggage. There is no room to move if you have two people. There is no AC or fan. There is a Thermostat but it must be shut off. Noisy street below means you can't even open the window.
