Comfortable No-fuss hotel on edge of city
Good, comfortable no-fuss hotel on the outskirts of Caen. Plenty of parking and ready access to the city or roads leading further afield. Hotel has a basic bar, and provides breakfast although thought this was poor value at 9 Euros. A number of chain restaurants within walking distance.
