The room we had at this hotel was small but quite comfortable and very clean. Bathroom was small but had nice shower and adequate counter space. Breakfast was good and also very clean. Would stay here again. Also, several restaurants nearby. Great seafood!
Spent two nights here which was not enough! This is a fascinating and beautiful area to explore and Pierre & Vacances provides an ideal base. It is within easy walking distance of Juno beach and the Canadian museum and not far to Arromanches and the other D-Day beaches.
We booked it to avoid a night in Paris and travelled easily into Caen to park and catch the train into the city. The journey was very comfortable, half the price of fares in the UK for twice the distance.
The accommodation is 'bijou' but very practical and everything we needed, except a toaster, which we could have hired from reception if we wanted to but we managed without. Just a short stride to the restaurants for an excellent choice of evening meals, coffee etc.
Others have commented on the short opening hours of reception but it is not difficult to organise arrival time to fit in and we didn't find it a problem.
The pool is lovely but the changing room is quite tight and not as private as British visitors might like especially at closing time. I threw a towel round me and hurried back to the apartment for a shower!
Lovely and quiet, perfect for a few relaxing days or longer if you are lucky.
"Nice clean comfortable hotel, staff very friendly"
Large, spacious, spotlessly clean room. Beds made up, towels changed daily. Cheap, satisfying continental breakfast buffet (croissants, pastries, bread, cereals, cheese, cold cuts, preserves, juice, tea/coffee/choc/milk) optional per person per day. Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming and very patient to someone with minimal French language ability!! Great location in the centre of all major D day beach sites and near to town of Bayeaux for Abbey and Tapestry. Be warned however, many websites still show pictures of the outdoor swimming pool at the hotel. This has been filled in for some years now and used as an outdoor dining area !! Beach is very close indeed though and is huge, sandy and water is lovely.

Lovely view over the marina from our balcony. we travelled with two children aged 9 and 12 who loved the indoor pool. (Outdoor closed until May). our two story apartment for six was comfortable and spacious for a family of four, but could have slept a couple more on the sofa bed in living room. we ate at one of the two bistros on the marina, a few metres from the front door, very reasonable and delicious food. 5 mins over the estuary bridge to beautiful long beach and promenade which leads to smart Cabourg. Very quiet out of season but still enough buzz from local restaurants. All in all, perfect base for the many local attractions of Normandy. Our children enjoyed the Bayeaux Tapestry. modern, very practical, perfectly clean and great value for money. great for families; all restaurants very family friendly. Great mini golf on the beach!

We stayed in this hotel when we arrived in Caen and used it again on our return to the ferry port.
It was very convenient and easy to find. Ideal for our purposes and would definitely stay there again.

On arrival the staff were very busy with a lunchtime service but we were checked in quickly and efficiently. The hotel is actually about 300yds from the main restaurant where you check in, so if you have a disability bear this in mind when booking.
The rooms were lovely and had a small balcony and an upstairs with a second double bed! This was not clear on booking which was a little frustrating as it would have meant we only needed to book the one room instead of two. They were both clean and well decorated and the bed was VERY comfortable.
We will definitely use this hotel again!
