A small hotel near the beach, functional clean rooms. A few restaurants in the immediate area. A good place to stay if visiting Sword beach area. Breakfast is an additional €7, and is OK with plenty of coussants, coffee and fresh juice. I would recommend it but there are larger more luxurious hotels around. The Tavern restaurant is about 3...

We stayed for three nights. Yes room is a bit small but big enough for us. Very comfortable clean bed, lovely linen. Great shower. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had breakfast every morning, great bread, delicious jams. Nice to have a cup of tea. The only disappointment was there was no meat or eggs with breakfast but...

Really liked this place. Nice, albeit small room. Tiny shower room. But clean, good bed and nice bedding. Wanted to stay on our next trip to Ouistreham but it is full, in March. Speaks for itself. The town itself was dead, nothing open. But it was early February, it's probably very nice in summer. We liked it.

As others have said, this is a little gem of a hotel, small but with all amenities. BUT, if you have any leg problem be sure to mention it when booking as the stairs can be a bit of a challenge. Pamela is a very helpful person and always has a smile. Very handy for visiting the Sword beach memorial...

A lovely family run hotel right in the centre of this beautiful town. The rooms are very clean with everything that you would expect from a good quality hotel.

The Hotel is located on a busy junction and is easy to find although parking is limited. Good clean and comfortable spacious rooms although traffic noise will be a problem in hot weather when windows need to be left open overnight. Breakfast (optional) is good with local produce. Several good restaurants nearby, even on a Sunday, and it is a...

A splendid hotel. Very calm and quiet. Excellent service and very pleasant. Clean and well-kept. Right next to the church and the bell were delightful. Hotel food very good, nothing too much trouble for the staff.
