Hotel L'ideal Le Mountbatten
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2017

Upon arriving at the hotel I thought it looked like a $40 a night motel that you might see on a highway. Initial reaction was not good.

Having said that, upon seeing the rooms the rooms were much nicer than first impressions would have suggested. Very well appointed. Decent size beds.
The staff were nice and helpful.

It is in a great location, walking distance into the town.

I would definitely recommend the hotel and stay there again.

Breakfast was very good. (Except one morning when they ran out of baguette, which meant the attendant had to pop out to the bakery, which unfortunately coincided with running out of coffee, which meant a wait for both, but, with only a dozen or so rooms I don't expect huge numbers of staff).

No aircon. But the area was quiet enough that it was OK to leave the window open at night without a distrubed sleep.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms can see over the buildings down to the water.

Well placed for visiting the D-Day Beaches and close to the town centre. Room was comfortable and clean. Car park very small and not enough space to maneuver easily into the marked spaces. Certainly not worth paying for...especially as there is a free car park just across the road!

Great location to begin your D-Day tour - kids walked out on the beach and saw the big pieces of "ocean highway" left from the war. We could walk everywhere from our hotel - lots of parking right across the street.

Delightful little hotel with wonderful owners. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for our tours of the Canadian history of D-Day. The breakfast (an extra charge per person) was really lovely. It included the usual breads, yoghurt, sliced meat etc. but everything was very fresh and they included as many organic and local products as possible so the quality was very high. And very yummy! A great base for any trip of the area. And it worked well for our family of two adults and two teenagers. We would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to friends.

Room Tip: Very comfy beds in our room with two double beds.

It was a perfect stay for a family traveling with 2 kids (the larger room), great location, nice facilities, friendly staff. I would surely recommend it, and repeat the stay.
Town is easy walking distance and plenty of choices for food and restaurants.
