Third time in Honfleur and instead of our usual IBIS stay (very good) we booked here at probably twice the price. Had a reasonable room overlooking the front of the hotel. A good reception, then was shown to the room which was a nice touch. The room was reasonable although balls of hair behind the bathroom door and a bedside light that didn’t work didn’t create the best first impression. Parking or breakfast wasn’t included so pricey for what it was. A reasonable stay but not sure I’d bother next time in Honfleur.
We've been coming to this hotel for many years but they have decided to modernise a 300 year old gem, rip out the character and turn it into a contemporary characterless establishment. The bedrooms in particular are what one might find in a modern block hotel, only worse. What has happened to the famous French style. The hotel remains reasonable value although now more basic than before our 'superior' room had no frills at all, all it boasted wa a single soap and a shower so low that one had to kneel. The decorations and curtains were awful and must have come from a local superstore. No style!!!
We only stayed here for one night, and skipped breakfast in the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms was spacious, clean and quiet, although located in the centre of the historic city. In contrast to some of the other hotels we stayed in, the wifi was fast and reliable.
Our 3rd visit to Honfleur and once again we stayed at Hotel du Dauphin. We originally stayed in the annexe, around the corner, but this is now apartments. Rich and I stayed in a double room on the 1st floor, at the front of the hotel. Muriel was in a room on the ground floor, next to reception. This was ideal for her, as she is recovering from a stroke and finds stairs difficult.The hotel is well placed for shopping and dining and although some of the roads and pavements are cobbled, the setts are big. There is a disabled parking bay, just outside the door, for short-term parking.
All the staff and the owner were charming and helpful and spoke English, as we speak very little French. The breakfast was plentiful, with cereal, fruit, breads, cakes, cheese, eggs and meat, washed down with fruit juice and coffee (& hot chocolate for Muriel). We always go to the market and meet Marc to buy our wine. He delivers this to the hotel, who store it for us until we leave. They also store any cheese we buy. They really cannot do enough for you. We really feel at home and we are looking forward to our next visit.
we stayed in the room with the glasses on the wall, two larger twin beds. some of the rooms are down the road from reception with a very narrow spiral staircase to reach the upper floor. room was very clean and had good amenities. there's paid public parking down the road and reception directs you to a free lot thats much farther away. service was good, overall good value.
