We normally stay prior to catching the Ouistreham (Caen)/ Portsmouth ferry. This year we stayed for two nights and had a good tour around the D.Day battlefields. The Le Saint Georges survived the onslaught,it is traditional French chateau style,with character,(don't expect modern Ibis style) . Our room was spotless with ensuite, very comfortable bed, wifi etc, with a beautiful view of Sword beach. Lovely garden to the rear with parking. The restaurant is a beautiful area and the food is fabulous with excellent staff.
We have travelled a good deal with varying degrees of satisfaction, noting with chagrin that properties occasionally embellish their features in the property/amenities descriptions. This property was exactly as described (very nice) and met all of our key priorities: cleanliness, security, quality. The rooms are nicely appointed and are meticulously cleaned, the linens were comfortable, and the area was tranquil. The parking lot was quiet and well lit and the property well-secured. The staff were exceptional and very kind. We didn't try the restaurant as we were touring daily so cannot provide comments with respect to food. We recommend with enthusiasm.

The BEST WESTERN La Mare O Poissons is ideally located between the sea, the D-Day sites and the car ferries terminal. Golfers …More
From the outside the hotel looks very nice, inside it was a little dated and in need of some general TLC. The room was very basic as expected but was clean. The staff were hard to find there was nobody on reception when we arrived or when we needed to check out in the morning to catch our ferry and had to wait some time after several rings of the bell. If you need a very basic clean room in close proximity for the early morning ferry then it is fine I wouldn't stay otherwise.
