Our family of 4 (2 teenage daughters, husband, wife) stayed here 4 nights in July. A great location next to a park (it was loud with young adults celebrating in the park one weekend night), and a few blocks to the cathedral and central town area. This was nice because there was little automobile traffic and noise - and free parking close to the B&B.
The room was on a corner and had views of the park, the cathedral and the interior courtyard. It was large, accommodating all 4 of us easily, and very comfortable, despite no air conditioning. The bathroom was large, as well, with only a shower, but easily big enough for all 4 of us (they had plenty of mirrors and electrical outlets). They had a hairdryer - something we missed in other bed and breakfasts.
Everything was clean, well-taken-care-of, and such that it didn't distract you from the visit.
The hosts were very helpful with suggestions of places to eat and things to do that all hit the mark for our interests. They provided a thorough breakfast with many choices. They even helped carry my 40lb suitcase 2 flights of stairs, both up and down.
The interior courtyard was nice to sit in after a day of touring the D-day historical areas. We also sat in the main floor den to rest and read, which was comfortable, as well. We would definitely stay there again and appreciate the hospitality that helped to make our trip special.
