    After pulling into the car park, which I can only liken to Stepto’s yard, we made our way to A quaint reception area, which is sadly ruined by the overwhelming smell of food ( mostly burnt by the smell throughout our stay), from the kitchen, a lack of reception staff who have any form of personality, hygiene or communication skill and a poor system which had no record of our booking. This was thankfully rectified when they had a ‘family’ room available and so we were upgraded from our reserved ‘double ‘room. We were happy until we reached the corridor and had to climb around an old desk surface with a no entry sign on it propped up outside our room. Entering through the door we were greeted with a light airy room - however it still had the smell of food from the kitchen below. The outlook is pleasant but noisy from the restaurant terrace below with plates and crockery still being banged around after 11pm at night . All the windows overlook this ( including the toilet, so no lights were used after sundown to avoid being seen in all my glory!) This wasn’t difficult with some lights as they didn’t work; it proved more tricky with others, as once on they wouldn’t turn off. The bed was comfy and the bedding clean and soft- however the bags of tissues which serve as pillows ( only 2 in a room which sleeps 4) leave a lot to be desired. We asked at reception for extra pillows and were told ‘non, c’est pas possible’! The rustic ( well worn!) furniture meant the wardrobe door didn’t

    Very poor wifi. Prepare for a 1 star stay. Bathrooms are poor - no soap, etc.

    You get what you pay for... and this was cheap, but we were keen to stay close the historic sites of Normandy. When we arrived there was no record of our booking, despite the fact it had been made six months earlier. As a result we stayed in rooms that were leftover in the wing which hadn't been renovated. They were reasonable in size and beds were comfortable, but things like pillows and towels were old and in short supply - bathroom was tiny, outdated and smelled of cigarette smoke. Receptionist/waitress acted like she didn't want to be there and the food were simply terrible. Enough said...
