    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.

    Convenient Stopover

    Good for stopover, triple room booked was small and third bed not good quality so booked a second room (advantage of staying in a less expensive hotel!). Slept fine. Did not try breakfast. There is a supermarket nearby and a restaurant next door.

    Fantastic budget hotel for exploring D-Day beaches! We checked in, room is a little small but its totally functional! The shower is the BEST!!! Rain style shower, very nice bathroom and seperate toilet (little high off the ground for me, really did feel like a throne!!) The bed was big and very comfy although there was only 1 pillow each, we had brought our own as we were going camping after Normandy. The restaurant next door was great (little expensive but so convenient) and my boyfriend said that his duck was cooked spot on.

    Nice clean quiet and practically located close to the Caen Mémorial and a large shopping center (Carrefour). Was easy to find on my way from Bayeux (tapestry) and has easy access to highway to go to Paris.
