Near to the beach
WIFI for free, friendly welcome and breakfast service small room, shower room moldy
It was a convenient location The hotel was of poor quality. Gave the impression of being run down. Badly in need of refurbishment. Not good value for money. Disappointed
Very pleasant stay. Would use again.
Very friendly, comfortable and clean. No bad points to comment.
From the front, the hotel is quite pretty. Convenient for early ferry to UK from Caen. Bathroom was spacious and clean. Beaches are surprisingly pretty and sandy. The apartments to the rear of the property are somewhat square and characterless compared to the main hotel building. The double bed was harder than we're used to. Gravel path to the apartments a little noisy. The nearest seaside restaurants are about 2km away - better to drive if you have kids.
The politeness of the young couple who run it . Such a difference compared to England . !!!
Delightfully warm welcome from the proprietor, who was discreetly attentive throughout our stay. Basic but comfortable family room. Simple but well-chosen breakfast buffet. Easy walk to local shops and restaurants - and the beach. The bathroom has a shower but no curtain.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. It was quiet. Comfortable. Nicely decorated. No facilities for making drinks (we British love our tea!)
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
Close to city centre Rooms in need of updating
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
grande chambre. very agreeable with not expensive price
Very central location with plenty of parking space across the road from the hotel Bedroom could do with a bit of redecoration / modernisation
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.
Extremely good central location in Lisieux. Good sized comfortable rooms and decent facilities. Breakfast was varied and would cater to all tastes.
Very good overnight stay during our journey south west, 2 rooms booked for mine and my friends family, all 8 of us pleased.
wonderful staff, great location for St. Therese sites
Hotel meal was very good and staff were friendly and helpful No bad points really
the staff were competent and friendly. it was very central to all the sites
The efficiency and friendliness of the staff no
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.
A friendly, relaxed hotel in a very convenient location. Very good buffet breakfast and some helpful local information.
The hotel is situated very close to the town centre, and on the main road going through the town so easy to find. Owner could not do anymore, excellent service. Will be back No secure car park
The receptionist was really wonderful and I appreciated her advice and suggestions. I also liked the outside area at the back of the hotel It was further from the beach than I imagined from the description and also on busy traffic corner
The staff made everything very easy to arrive by helping guide me on my travel by car to get to the location and also helped me in directions leaving for other events in the area of Normandy The parking was a little inconvient but it is because of the location of the hotel on the block.
Used as the base for a site seeing weekend in Normandy. Hotel owner was very nice. We slept very well.
Clean and comfortable, easy to find. Very friendly staff. There should be something in the bathroom where you can put or hang your towel or/and personal belongings...
Very friendly welcome from Nok, the owner of the hotel. Very quiet night. Comfortable, clean room with stylish furnishings. Excellent continental breakfast. Good value. No
Tidy rooms, a more than friendly landlord (she even took us back to the train station when we were asking her to call us a taxi), good restaurants and the beach are less than 10 minutes away by foot.
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.
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.
Excellent Value for money
Clean.Good basic facilities.Quiet. Easy parking. Pleasant restaurant with good simple food.Good to use enroute.
Good overnight accomodation. More of a motel.
Excellent located with direct access and view to the beach. Spacious and safe garage. Breakfast OK. Friendly staff. A hairdryer in the room and some more towels (only 2 for 2 adults plus small child) would have been convenient, even if we stayed only for one night.
Good sea view from front rooms of hotel. Rooms clean roomy and pleasant. Long walk back into the main town. No outside sitting area.
We stayed overnight on our way home from holiday. Parking was easy, hotel clean with all expected facilities and breakfast was good.
Convenient to visit the beach and Deauville
The hotel was clean, comfortable and in a lovely place. Breakfast was quite good too. I do not think people should pay for parking although in saying that we couldn't use the car park because of height restrictions.
This is a good hotel ideally located to visit the D-day beaches.
I liked the architectural style of this grand old hotel. The bar service was excellent. The staff was very helpful. The suite was not air conditioned and was somewhat stuffy with the windows closed. With the windows open, this particular suite was susceptible to the noise from the street and the casino. Other suites on the beach, east side would not have the problem of street or casino noise with open windows. Wifi reception on my computer was sporadic and was on a pay-as-you-go basis through Orange.
we had a four star room with fabulous seaviews, but 2 star service throughout the hotel. The hotel history seems to be what the hotel rests on which is not enough and very little attempt is made to enhance the experience. We were left feeling that it was our privelage to stay there and that there was no need to make any effort for the guests. The quality of the room luckily couterbalanced this. However, we would not return.
We came because of Proust and becuase my Father had always wanted to come here. The setting is beautiful. The Hotel does not make enough of its Atrium and the tables are around the edge without a defined area to sit and have coffee or a drink. The Breakfast would have been excellent if the coffee and hot water had been hot. The caftiere was not full so only two cups of coffee possible. The food in the restuarant was abominable. I mentioned this to the Front desk but they said nothing. We have eaten a many of Frances' top restaurants and have been coming to France since the 1950'S. We ate the meal only becuase we had not eaten all day. The food is incredibly expensive and just nonsense. The rooms are showing their age with paint bashed etc.
We stayed here because of the Proust connection and were not disappointed. It is a grand old hotel that is absolutely beautiful. Staff was lovely and the breakfast was excellent. It is really, really expensive.
Still one of the very best locations in this part of the Norman seaside, including Deauville. The room on 1st floor was directly located above the dustbin and supply area . Very noisy supplying and discharging started 4:00 a.m.
Breakfast was good; the room was comfortable if strangely decorated The fire alarm (practice?) which all but we seemed to ignore.
The location of the hotel. Very easy to check in and out. No reserved parking for hotel guests coming by car. Expensive breakfast.
The rooms were pleasantly decorated, spacious, and the bathroom had a really good shower. We paid extra for the breakfast when we booked. When we checked in this was not mentioned and we had to ask about the breakfast. At first they said we didn't have breakfast included, then they looked it up and acknowledged that it was in fact included. No big problem, but if we hadn't asked we wouldn't have been told where to go or any of the details.
The service, the quality and variety of the food, the position, and the general feeling of being somewhere special. Nothing
Very nice and confortable room in a great location The only missing service is clearly a pool!
It was a very quaint old building kept up and clean We were on the third floor and it was a small spiral staircase which was a little difficult with baggage.
Please write at least 15 words Family owned hoitel. Really helpful, lovely location and excellent food.
A great little hotel,nice room,really excellent breakfast,good value & a very efficient Manager.
Room given away on first night as we did not check in by 4! There needs to be something on website to warn you that they will do this if you do not tell them you will be arriving after 4. They did find us accomodation in another hotel.
A very friendly , family atmosphere. Lovely, helpful staff. Very clean hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast. Good central location for the town and very handy for the beach, shops and restaurants. Fixtures, fittings and overall decoration of the Hostellerie needed updating, it generally had a tired feel to it.
Even though the hotel was not on a main street it was quite noisy, i.e. garbage truck in morning, noise of restaurant below, loud motorcyles, etc._
the staff, the view and facilities in our first room, super breakfast, very good restaurant, perfect location for the beach because we booked late, we had to move to another room for one night - rear of hotel, no view, on top of kitchen, so cooking smells, cramped for three, with Z-bed for daughter!
Great ambiance, location, and staff (family)
spacy room, good few, very central, good breakfast
Excellent food and service. Would thoroughly recommend it and will go back for a weekend instead of just overnight.
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.
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,
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.
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.
Peaceful country setting with relaxing atmosphere. Wonderful breakfast. Staff is friendly and helpful.
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.
Very friendly, very helpful, pleasent surroundings Fairly near to a road, so background noise is a minus point
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.
The Maitresse was lovely, very welcoming.
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.
Good location, friendly atmosphere, rooms spacious and comfortable.
People very friendly and helpful even though we checked in at 1am n/a
easy access to near by places of interest. no facility to make tea or coffee in the room.
Our room was spacious and clean. The restaurant was very nice. The grounds were lovely.
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,
Good parking, comfortable bed, large room, efficient staff.
Staff, particularly the girls on reception, were really excellent and welcoming but the show was stolen by Pablo the Maitre de... Pillows
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.
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 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.
The breakfast lounge No elevator - Need to hand carry the luggage to 2nd floor.
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 lake so close and nice....
Good location - excellent restaurant - efficient service n/a
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.
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
The quit and simple style no
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 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.
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.
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.
Very clean and tidy. Very spacious room. Great restaurant.
Excellent room, modern facilities, all very clean and warm. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Towels were very small.
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.
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)!
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.
Location and inclusive breakfast. We were given at first a very small room where TV did not work and wardrobe door almost inaccessible(too close to bed)Upgraded to larger room. There seemed to be a lack of attention to room maintenance-fixtures fell off wall ,loo paper location inaccesible.
