The Ibis is a modern chain hotel at a moderate price point. Clean, generously sized room, good shower, mattress not as firm as we would have liked. Breakfast (extra charge) is a well provisioned buffet. Parking lot available behind the hotel. Could be an Ibis anywhere except for their location - right on the docks, with a view out through the village which is just a few minutes walk away. Fish processing plant across the docks from the hotel. With a room on the street you have a front row seat to the docks & the heart of the village. Watch the boats gearing up to go out, fishermen mending nets, seagulls cleaning up. Port en Bessin is a charming fishing village with it’s own place in the D-Day invasion history. Sufficient number of cafes/restaurant choices. Closes up early & quiet at night. Good base for visiting the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial and other D-day/WWII museums & memorials, as well as Bayeux and Caen. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Street side rooms have a view of the village & harbor

Stayed here for 6 nights with my wife while visiting the local area, rooms are clean but basic, only two sockets which are located near the window for some reason, would be a good idea to have them either side of the bed, tv is as with all there hotels in Europe rubbish if you only speak English, one channel is available, BBC world news, you would think that being based in Normandy this hotel would have channels that reflect the clientele, the majority of visitors being from English speaking countries, mind you it’s the same with there hotel in Albert on the Somme, another hotel with a huge English speaking customer base, very disappointing, breakfast is ok but got a bit boring by our sixth morning and at €11 each I don’t think is worth the money but as there is little alternative in the town you don’t have much choice then to eat here, the location of the hotel is very good.

Stayed here for 2 nights, hotel room is clean and served its purpose. We had a car and we chose this location due to its proximity to the WW2 landings beaches. However one thing to note is there aren’t many options for good food around here, and everything is closed by 6.30 and the town essentially becomes a ghost town after that. If we had to redo this, we would’ve definitely stayed in bayeux.

Good Morning Miss Shenjin,
Thank you to leave a message to share your experience.
Port-en-Bessin is a village of 2.000/2.500 people essentially in the fishy business.
You do have a different restaurants, a lot in the city center : brasserie, traditional French, crêperie, Italian, fish, semi gourmet or gastronomic. They serve early between 7.00 and 9.00 p.m approximately.
Bayeux and after Caen are bigger so more activities during the night than Port-en-Bessin.
Yours respectfully, Valentin | Reception

Outstanding hotel in a wonderful location. The stay is made even better by the friendly and helpful staff who are always smiling and eager to help. The rooms were well serviced every day, again by friendly staff who were very helpful. The breakfast is buffet style and there is plenty of food which is immediately replenished when it runs out.

We stayed here with another couple while visiting D-Day beaches. Convenient location. Good breakfast. We walked to some very good restaurants each evening. Fun to watch the fishermen getting their gear ready.
