The lack of information regarding the location of the hotel on Booking.COM
This was an unxpectedly absolutely charming place to stay, a small manor house that feels buried in the countryside but is highly accessible for the main road between Cherbourg and Caen, Bayeux and the D-Day beaches. The owner speaks perfect English and could not have been more helpful, without being at all intrusive. It is purely bed and breakfast, not a full service hotel,(eg no TV in the room) but the house is in its own grounds, up a poplar lined drive, and you are free to wander the immaculate grounds, including the apple orchard. I stayed for one night as a stop over, but would have no hesitation in returning for a longer period. My double room was large and immaculate, the stone walls and stairs mean there is very little noise from the other rooms, despite the house being full when I stayed. The breakfast was laid out in the dining room and was perfectly adequate, with cereals and rolls etc. No
Excellent room,very peaceful and quiet location.
Lovely room and grounds, friendly owner Not within walking distance of restaurant
Perfect location for visiting D-Day memorials. Lovely room excellent pressure on shower, well decorated and cared for. Once we discovered how close to the main roads it really was, it was all the better. It is quiet and about quarter mile from main road. This time of year, not a lot of restaurants open in Valognes but easy travel to Cherbourg and all along coastal towns. Not particular to Manoir but all over Europe, pillows are not the kind we use in US. A poor review just prior to our trip was unnecessary. All the traveler needed to do was ask Eric for help. He and his wife put a lot of time and care into the property. We definitely would go again and recommend.
The gardens and farming ambience were pleasant. The countryside was pretty and the Manoir tranquil. It was rather too isolated to be easy to find. The room was large and comfortable but in such an isolated location it would have been an improvement to have had some tea or coffee available. Luckily we had brought food with us as we realized access to restaurants was not easily found.
Quiet, Clean, Historic, Well-managed, Beautiful Gardens, country-side, and apple orchard. Spacious & 500-year old building like new. We couldn't stay longer due to the usual life intrusive events.
The beautiful Manor House itself, lovely room, the tranquil setting, ease of access, friendliness of the host. Bed was not as comfortable as it should have been.
Everything about this hotel was just perfect ... down an alley of trees, lost in the forest and fields outside the town of Valognes, in the Contentin peninsula, you come up to a beautiful mansion of the 16th century. The garden is well tended, plants have small signs naming them, a small pond lies in one corner, the owner welcomes you with a large smile and warm words. The rooms have each a theme.
The whole place was a surprise from arrival till departure. A beautifull place in a very nice and private setting. Couple who run it are most pleasent.
