A perfectly adequate inexpensive room. Pleasant staff. Good breakfast. Bare walls - no bedhead - needed another pillow or two.
wifi access / off street parking cleanliness in general was poor / no tea making facilities / room was just basic box with bed and tv / hotel was dirty and unkept / no warning ref: street market blocking you in on saturday morning / staff spoke no english /
Is was basic but ok for a short stay The rooms all smelt quite strongly of cigarettes. Opening the windows in the children room was a problem as there was a lot of noise from cars. We ask to be close to the children but were at the opposite end of the corridor.
staff attitude, original paintings, close to shops etc Willing to listen to comments to improve service.Very friendly. limited parking space, we had a small modern bath in one room this time, next time prefer shower.don't know about rest of rooms.
Locality close to shops etc. Bed a little uncomfortable and sleeping on mattress waterproof protector.
Location, free private car parking The room was fine, but maybe in need of a freshen up
It was only a stoppover but was in a good position for parking and a good choice of eating out nearby. Breakfast was excellent best croissants of the holiday!! No
Very comfortable, benefitting from a town centre location. the staff were very friendly and made you very welcome. The market on saturday morning made it awkward to depart.
The hotel was situated in the heart of a beautiful town, with easy parking. Fairly clean, comfortable beds. Extractor fan of Chinese restaurant outside window; blankets old & a bit dusty; shower scruffy and pooled; no drinks available in hotel.
Staff/owners were very friendly and the dog was not charged for. Room was short on comfort but the price was reasonable.
Extremely good central location in Lisieux. Good sized comfortable rooms and decent facilities. Breakfast was varied and would cater to all tastes.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. It was quiet. Comfortable. Nicely decorated. No facilities for making drinks (we British love our tea!)
Close to city centre Rooms in need of updating
Very good overnight stay during our journey south west, 2 rooms booked for mine and my friends family, all 8 of us pleased.
Location, good quality-price relationship Problem with wireless in the room (I had to go to connect to reception), a little bit old fashioned hotel not luxurious but right and clean for the price paid. Good service at reception desk
Very central location with plenty of parking space across the road from the hotel Bedroom could do with a bit of redecoration / modernisation
We had a lovely light and spacious family room with a large bathroom with bath and shower. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room, quite noisy at night and warm as it is not air conditioned
grande chambre. very agreeable with not expensive price
Lisieux is an excellent middle point to visit Normandy- D day beaches, Mt Saint Michel, etc. The Best Western is in the center of this very cute little town and has excellent service and rooms. We loved the three nights we spent there.
the staff were competent and friendly. it was very central to all the sites
Restaurant very good, though wine was a little expensive for what was offered. Reception staff very obliging. Cleaning staff courteous and did a very good job. Room was tired and shower did not work properly, there were better rooms in the hotel and I would have preferred this option when booking. Hotel was unable to offer a better room on arrival because it was full.
The efficiency and friendliness of the staff no
wonderful staff, great location for St. Therese sites
Hotel meal was very good and staff were friendly and helpful No bad points really
Excellent Value for money
Clean.Good basic facilities.Quiet. Easy parking. Pleasant restaurant with good simple food.Good to use enroute.
Breakfast and dinner were good value. The hotel turned out to be on the wrong side of Lisieux for the business my son and I had in Normandy (clearing a house we had sold). So we only stayed one night. It's not the kind of place I would have chosen in other circumstances (like a Travelodge with better food) but the above is the sole reason for moving on.
very small room, when opening the third bed impossible to get to the bathroom, very unfriendly staff, actually a B&B on the highway for a night's stop over. Maybe acceptable for business travellers
Convienient stopover useful to have restuarant on site food not too bad but not what you would get in local restuarant hotel next door considerably cheaper not much less standard. Staff could smile a little more
We stayed here because we had a car and did not want to have to negotiate the streets of the city and also find a place to park. It was in a perfect location for day trips to various spots in the countryside, which is what we did every day. It was very convenient to all the major roads of the region.
Usual Campanile quality, style, value and helpfulness Hotel has an automated check-in system, which meant that guests were arriving right through the night. Woken at 01:15 with loud bangs and then suffered a constant arrival of people through to 03:30, the rattle of each diesel engine and flurry of slammed doors heralding yet another arrival. Not pleasant. This is a larger (3-storey) building and it's a terrible sound box, easily transmitting noises between rooms. If you want to hear people coming and (quite literally!) going all night, then stay here and enjoy the experience! Never again will we use this hotel, and we will avoid others that have an automated 24-hours check-in system (look for the green kiosk that looks like a cashpoint, next to the main entrance). This is a shame, as the rest of the hotel was good and the staff very helpful.
Good overnight accomodation. More of a motel.
Being able to book in anytime, clean room and good shower.
friendly service, clean and quiet room, very reasonable price
great value, nice English speaking staff . Ok breakfast . Hard to find. Near the roundabout on the way out of town. near carrefour petrol station
Pass Old fashioned and shabby. Collections of old radios in every corner don't seem to have been dusted for a long time.
Clean and comfortable,pleasant staff, relaxed atmosphere, country location although train line and main road very close.
The room was well designed and comfortable Our shower leaked so there was a pool of water in the en suite when we arrived. Perhaps this should have been noted before and dealt with although this didn't spoil our stay in spite of wet feet!
Parking outside the room. Although just a plastic foam matress, the bed was surprisingly comfortable. Would have liked bacon and eggs for breakfast, or at least some meat products, like ham, for example. A DVD player would be an advantage to those guests who don't understand French as there are no english programs to watch on TV and, in any case, the TV reception was very poor quality. If you then rented DVDs for the night, you could make a bit more profit, perhaps? Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would be appreciated, as supplied in the UK.
easy tofind,very helpful and pleasant receptionist, clean and comfortable. probably the best edge of town-overnight stay-budget chain-hotel we have stopped in and the town of Orbec is very old, very nice a delight to wander around and we found it very reasonably priced we will definately go back but it will have to be two nights next time. nothing we did not like about this hotel
Acces Breakfast was not always with fresh bread
Clean, modern hotel in quiet location Beds very hard, no coffee-making facilities, room quite small and basic
The setting is great; the masseur was wonderful; the area is beautiful and the hotel very convenient to Honfleur and the coast. The swimming pools are an asset, especially having an indoor one incase the weather is bad. Our rooms were tiny and not at all what I expected, very down market for the price. The staff were missing most of the time and very disinterested in the restaurant apart from the barman who tried hard and the women in reception were not particularly warm or welcoming
The ground floor chalet rooms no
the standard of vthe main courses at diner not of an expected standard
Helpful friendly staff, especially with problem of item left behind. Honest and efficient over return of item.
Incredible staff, waited for us until late, fulfilling all our needs: iron and a marvelous salad (foie gras/duck) plus few complimentary plates! Excellent place to stay.
Restaurant was excellent both for breakfast & for evening meal. The various menus of the day in particular were excellent value for money, although not cheap, ranging from 31 to 75 Euros per person. Wine list was huge, ranging from the very expensive to surprisingly good quality rose' & white at around 25 Euros per bottle or less. Outside pool area looked very attractive, though this was not in use during our visit in October. All staff were friendly & helpful and menus were offered in English - a real bonus, with such a huge range and quality of food on offer. Very enjoyable overnight stop, with exceptional dining on offer. Bar prices were excessive in my opinion, particularly for beer, although cocktails on offer looked fair value for money. The standard double room was small & the bathroom tiny, although everything was clean & well presented and it was more than adequate for a one night stay. The cost of upgrade to a better standard of room seemed high?
Good service & atmosphere, good facilities (esp. swimming pools & jacuzzi). Quality of food was good also.
The hotel, room and food were fabulous and sited well for the surrounding area. Although we considered we had excellent value for money it seemed that our 'package price' for half board (3 nights), through booking.com, was actually the room only price, the hotel did however honour our package price. The hotel would have been very expensive if a package price had not been available.
Astonishing old manor house in a beautiful garden. Charming room, comfortable bed, absolutely silent - we really slept well here. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a little bit too expensive as there was nothing special about it.
We thought the meals were excellent. The Hotel had an indoor and outside pool which was nice for our children.
Though it is a lovely hotel and the staff were very helpful, our stay was spoilt by the fact that a film shoot that was being done there had overrun. This meant we could not check in on time and parking was very awkward. The clean up from the shoot was still underway when we had breakfast the next morning and then left.We had not received any notice of this situation. However we were given an upgrade and a very modest price reduction for the inconvenience.
The care and attention given by all the staff was exceptionally good. We were supposed to be staying in an attic room but as soon as we walked in ,Madame noticed that my husband is tall so she upgraded us. We stayed for 4 nights and slept in 3 different rooms and the staff moved all our belongings and clothes for us, so it was no trouble to us. All rooms lovely. The food was also really good
perfect ambiance, perfect service and perfect food
Excellent service when we had a difficult booking experience. Friendly and attentive staff The hotel is a little tired and could do with some painting and updating in the social areas.
Countryside lovely. Convenient parking. Pleasant(ish) staff. Shower did not work - the "switch" to shower kept reversing. Bath absolutely tiny and impossible to lie in and soak. Because shower not working I tried to wash hair in bath but almost impossible to submerge in such an absolutely tiny bath - more like a basin than a bath. No hairdryer. Very expensive menu. Window in room too high to look out of. Felt claustrophobic.
A very comprehensive breakfast and attentive staff, did not eat dinner in the reasturant but judging from the breakfast, and the people coming to the hotel to eat I have no doubt it would have been exceptional. Was led to believe there was a garden over looking stream this was not so, but could have very easily been achieved , instead the bins had the best view
we had been there last year and wanted to go back with friends; we enjoyed the surroundings and it's like being home in the hotel there were works going on, but it did not really disturb our stay; it's kind of dark inside; last time it was summer and we could stay on the terrace
Ideal location for an overnight stay enroute to destination in Maine et Loire, good standard of room, nice decoration and cleanliness. Staff pleasant and efficient.Good for acess to local town and restaurants, nice shops. Will definitely use it again Rooom quite small, so good for one or two nights only, bathroom toilet facility also quite small.Window at front opened on to corridor so difficult to leave open, rear window looked on to back view of hotel, not attractive.
Very good breakfast. Good access to the town and to through routes whilst, at the same time, quiet location with good parking. Good as an overnight stop on the way to and from Channel ports. Just round the corner from famous Calvados producer with free guided visits and tastings. 'Interesting' room arrangement resulting from the incorporation of en-suite facilities into what had been a not terribly big bedroom originally.
Absolutely beautiful buildings, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, secure location, lovely town nearby and would definitely stay again when in Normandy. 5* I think that booking.com should put GPS co-ordinates into booking confirmation or just input town and then for the street: hotel name. finds it every time and makes finding hotel much easier.
Very friendly, very helpful, pleasent surroundings Fairly near to a road, so background noise is a minus point
The Maitresse was lovely, very welcoming.
Welcoming, efficient and friendly
Ease of access from motorway and the room was quiet. The staff were friendly The wifi system was hopeless - they need to replace it
Only stayed one night on en route to South West France. Ideal stop over hotel, rooms clean and breakfast good value!
Easily located from the motorway. The facilities are excellent and its lacation next to a really nice restraunt an added bonus. I and my friends would be very happy to recommend it to others needing overnight accommodation or a longer stay.
Very convenient stop off for travelling from UK to South France
Is clean and tidy with a fresh look
Often use this hotel as it is ideally located for a stop-over en route to other parts of France. Good restaurant next door. Staff always very friendly and helpful.
Good facilities,pool,spacious reception,clean,easy check in. Rooms OK but a little basic.
Weekend reception staff rather indifferent.
People very friendly and helpful even though we checked in at 1am n/a
Beautiful setting in the country, yet close to everything. Very quiet, good breakfast, enjoyed out stay. Bartender/waiters did not know anything about American drinks,
easy access to near by places of interest. no facility to make tea or coffee in the room.
Nice, modern and comfortable hotel We had assumed the location was closer to Deauville, but it is out of town so not able to enjoy all that Deauvlle has to offer.
Our room was spacious and clean. The restaurant was very nice. The grounds were lovely.
Staff, particularly the girls on reception, were really excellent and welcoming but the show was stolen by Pablo the Maitre de... Pillows
Good parking, comfortable bed, large room, efficient staff.
Good location, friendly atmosphere, rooms spacious and comfortable.
An ideal place to recover from a long day of work
Pleasant grounds Rolls Royce weekend - lounge/dining areas difficult to use due to large numbers.Used outside facilities as we wanted a quite evening meal. My husband was spoken to rather rudely by another guest when he realised we drive a mercedes & not a Rolls! We were at the hotel on holiday not to be insulted because of the car we drive. It did spoil things a little for us.
The quit and simple style no
Room had pleasant views of the lake. Quality holesome food that was good value. Room a little tired with some mould in bathroom around shower. SAT TV only had French channels! Could be made more cheerful with pictures etc.
The breakfast lounge No elevator - Need to hand carry the luggage to 2nd floor.
Good evening meal. Polite and friendly staff Slow check in as only one lady at busy bar when we arrived at 8pm Room hot and too many insects to leave windows open - insect mesh blinds would be great.
Good quiet location. The price of the room was quoted at 55 Euro. However because our reservation was through Booking .com for 66 Euro we had to pay this price. Not a good advertisement for your service as it would be better to make a direct reservation
the lake so close and nice....
The lakeside location was good but too far to walk in to Pont Eveque for a meal. The room was rather small and the outside of the hotel needs a good tidy up. It seemed a rather tired place and was not as good value for money as our following night at the Hotel Robic, Pontivy.
Good location - excellent restaurant - efficient service n/a
Existence of lake at the back of the hotel and of a diving cormorant at the lake
I arrived very late 5am the next morning but the key and full instructions had been left as arranged by phone earlier
Very attractive room where a very good breakfast was served. Bedroom upstairs from toilet and bathroom. Car park surface unsuitable for motorcycles. Sitting area immediately outside window, frequently occupied by cleaning staff smoking.
Excellent room, modern facilities, all very clean and warm. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Towels were very small.
Central Hotel with nice clean rooms. Good space for a short stay in this area. The room we had was nice but for small children a sofa bed was adequate but took up all of the downstairs area. This meant an in-out arrangement if we wanted to spend time in our room. No drinks making facilities if we were inside our rooms.
Very clean and tidy. Very spacious room. Great restaurant.
Very pleasant experience on all counts. Internet access was gratuit. Parking was secure. property was quiet. Lobby charming. Staff spoke english well which was a huge relief on our first night in france afetr travelling for 24 straight hours.
Split level was interesting (lounge and facilities on first level and bed on second), bed was very comfortable, good location. Very friendly helpful bilingual staff. Lavatory did not have a wash basin (it was in a separate room)!
Charming building and rooms, great breakfast, helpful friendly staff. Good combination of style and efficiency. Very happy to recommend Only minor niggles - didn't have a cot available, bins too small if you have nappies to throw!
Upstairs rooms are duplex style with narrow staricase to sleeping area so could be a problem for some.
We booked a duplex room for a family of 5. The room was exactly as described - double bed upstairs plus single folding bed. Double sofa-bed downstairs. The hotel was beautifullt refurbished and in a convenient location - short walk to town and short drive to Deauville, Trouville, etc. Breakfast was offered at 12 euros per head - but there are two boulangeries across the road.
We chose the hotel because we ha stayed there about 25 years ago on the return leg of a touring hoiliday.....we had called in just by chance and rooms were available............so we decideded to give it another try! The layout and the duplex rooms were fantastic.....very clean and fresh and incredible value......the staff were supurb........thanks very much. No..........but I think that it might be nice to have a fridge in lounge area.
The pleasant welcome we received from your staff. The room smelt of smoke when we arrived. I realise this is as much a problem of your other guests.
Wonderful comfortable beds. Friendly welcome.
Easy to find, convenient stopover. Comfy, clean, just what we wanted.
Comfortable, friendly, excellent breakfast. Restaurant closed on a Weds and long drive to nearest one. No tea/coffee in room
Easy to find. Clean. Pleasant staff. Very uncomfortable beds. Didn't seem to be much for breakfast - there were 5 of us and we paid 40 euros for a roll and drink each.
Good reception service Restaurants and Bars Breakfast is served from 07:00 until 10:00. Dinner is served from 19:30 until 21:00. is the description included on the web site. This is not the case and we booked specifically to avail ourselves of this facility.
Given we were only staying one night,the helpful and pleasant attitude of the staff and the excellent self-service breakfast
clean,quiet and polite friendly staff. The restaurant is closed during August to "solo" visitors as the hotel and facilities are taken over by coaches and tourist groups. The web site should have known this.Price was a little high without B/fst.
Noisy exhaust fan in bathroom.
We messed up our booking and the staff were very accomodating Not very comfortable
This second visit to La Ferme Saint Nicolas was as good as the first if not better as we had superb dinners in the evening this time. Our hosts were charming and friendly.
Very friendly, warm welcome on arrival. Accomodation full of character in lovely countryside. The owners were very helpful giving lots of information on local places of interest for us to visit. None.
Excellent service - Stayed overnight on the way to Calais with Family. We checked in late and requested an early breakfast. Breakfast was therefore provided in our room and was excellent. The room actually turned out to be a small gite with 2 bedrooms, lounge/diner & kitchen etc, with a rural outlook onto a farm. Would highly recommend for anyone travelling with a young family - Watch out for the turkey though!!!!!
The owners were very welcoming, friendly and provided lots of advice about local attractions. Table d'hote meals were very enjoyable and gave the opportunity to engage with the other guests, and sample the local cider, calvados and cheese.
The courtesy and warmth of the owners, the food, both at breakfast and dinner (when possible), the quietness of the location, the size of the family suite.
Much has been said about the breakfast, and it is all true! We didn't try the evening dinners, but heard very positive things about that from other guests as well. The location is quiet and very nice with the animals on the grounds of the farm. Nice places like Etretat and Honfleur are within easy reach, and other places like Le Mont St Michel are just a 2 hour drive away. The room was simple, but the bed very comfortable. The owners do everything they can to make your stay a pleasant one.
The family atmosphere our hosts created amongst the international guests at meal times was a delight and the quality of the breakfast and dinner menus was outstanding.
Very good breakfasts and a very nice dinner for additional payment. Very friendly owners. Excellent environment - clean air and picturesgue surroundings in a village style. Interesting room decoration. Maybe, it would be better to improve a little heating system in a room. It was a bit unusual to do everything very quickly not to be frozen in the evenings.:)))
The hospitality and friendliness of the owners was great and the fact that English was spoken if necessary was extremely useful. The accommadation clean, comfortable and unique. As a centre to explore the area this hotel is in a great position for both countryside and seaside.
Very quiet setting. Owners of the inn asked if we'd like to stay for dinner for 20 Euros a person. Good meal and good value. Owner ate with us, as did others who were staying for the night. Very cute cottage with two separate bedrooms and a futon that comfortably slept 6 people. Cozy setting. Glad we stayed here. A really intimate feel.
Staff was very helpful and kind. Without asking we were upgraded to a better room for the same price. The hotel used to have a magnificent restaurant. This was the main reason to go back to this hotel. But the owner decided to close the restaurant to cut costs. As a result you have to go back into your car and drive to some restaurant in the neighbourhood if you want anything to eat. We were very dissapointed about this.
Great food, super service, we've ordered the junior suite and got the suite so a nice bonus
Beautiful setting, wonderful views from room, well, and tastefully, furnished No evening restauant facilities, no kettle in room,
lovely environment. very comfortable and relaxing. quality of food in both evening and breakfast was very high.over all really liked it. a bit difficult to find...
Tranquile atmosphere No airconditioning
staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful and quiet surroundings. No iron available in the room.
This was an experience staying on a stud farm. The hotel has many features and is the epitamy of good living. In the countryside - you had access to wonderful walks, there was also a duck pond with a whole spectrum of wildlife in it- including a duck house. A lot of thought had gone into getting the detail of the hotel just right. Food exceptional. Hotel does not serve food on a wednesday and you are left to your own devises in the middle of countryside. Bar not open either. Having washed her hair my wife found the hairdryer not working on going to reception she was told there was no-one available to fix it - with a gaullic shrug.
Excellent food and service. Would thoroughly recommend it and will go back for a weekend instead of just overnight.
Peaceful country setting with relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful breakfast. Staff is friendly and helpful.
We liked the location, once we had found it, the room was very comfortable and the gardens were very pleasant to wander around. We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were very friendly and polite. We did find the hotel difficult to find without GPS locator, and the address was not too helpful. Also we were disappointed with no English TV channels although Sky TV was advertised they were all foreign to us.
Perfect matc price/quality. You have fast internet, a good TV and all necessary basic tools you need for basic sleeping. Do not expect any luxury, rooms are small, bathroom is in plastic,beds are not too comfortable, coffee to be taken from a machine. Do not take the breakfast in the hotel but go to Leclerc just outside the hotel for a fresh and cheap breakfast
The booking in was very easy I would have liked a kettle for tea and coffee in the room to have made it more comfortable.
Once in Lisieux it was easy to find the hotel which is on the Paris Road behind the town's McDonald's. It is also beside a large Le Clerc supermarket where you can get a three course lunch and free water for under six Euros. It is easy to access St. Therese de Lisieux's family home and Carmel Convent from here by car. The gentleman at the front had worked in Dublin for two years and was very helpful. We had a nice stay in the hotel and in Lisieux. There was good parking outside and it is only two and a half hours away (by car) from Cherbourg port.
Easy access during the day, and reasonable prices. A little difficult to find for the first time. No nothing.
The price was very good and the hotel offered free internet facilities and a simplistic approach to entering and exiting the hotel. There was almost no need for any staff.
Clean room,easy access from main roads.
Excellent hotel and staff. Wifi would not work until the television in the room was switched off and unplugged. Hotel was full, and breakfast area too small staff struggled to cope, and we had to wait for a table.
Interconnecting room was priceless as was the breakfast option. Location is outstanding for visiting Lisieux
Easy to check in/out. Fairly calm and quite. A bit far from city centre and good restaurants.
The rooms were clean and the price was great. A great location with restaurants and stores nearby.
