What our customers say
"Passing Through "
A great welcome with excellent English spoken, room was very large with double window view across to the Cathedral. A modern and well equipped bathroom and comfortable beds, buffet breakfast was substantial and good value. A great stop over for the start or finish of your holiday, or a base for exploring the stunning Normandy area.
clean and tidy. Room warm ( perhaps too hot) Staff courteous and efficient. Only down side was the lack of WiFi ( due to weather conditions) .would certainly revisit as it is perfectly central to the main area.
Great location, simple but really clean. The staff was really helpful.
"A convenient location "
Near the cathedral and a pedestrian mall. A very attentive desk clerk. Almost no restaurants within walking distance on a Sunday night. Only available parking is on the street and on weekdays it is metered.
"Good place to be but ....."
Nice hotel, with comfortasble room and bathroom. However the bathroom was not very good cleaned. The radiator was dirty and on the floor of the shower their was some black hair of a former visitor. Pity. The breakfast was OK.
"Great service and location!"
Recently spent two weeks at this hotel in Lisieux. Our room was very clean, with a beautiful view of the cathedral square and quick access to local stores. M. Patel (owner) was beyond friendly and helpful and did everything to make sure our trip was enjoyable! Will definitely stay in his hotel the next time we visit.
