“Exactly what we expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

Auberge de la Claire is a clean, affordable roadhouse motel on a lovely main street a few minutes from Honfleur's beautiful harbor. We selected it primarily for the low price of a one night stay, and noticed its apparent popularity with many French weekenders. Henrick is the very courteous and friendly English-speaking owner with whom I had an extended and interesting conversation.
Meet and cheese was included in the breakfast, which was a rarity for us in Europe.
My wife and I would happily stay here again.

The room had a musty smell and the worst of all, the bed appeared dirty: there was something black, a bit like sand, on the sheets and I wasn't too sure whether the pillow cases of the extra pillows which were in the wardrobe were clean or not. Moreover, the hotel is fair 15-20 minutes walk from the town centre. The price was quite cheap for Honfleur but I would rather pay more than sleep in a dirty bed.

We were very pleased with this hotel. The facilities are basic but very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the management was extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in a quadruple room (11) which would be an ideal choice for families travelling on a budget. The hotel is an easy walk to the harbour or else about a 5-minute drive.
Do not stay here if you are looking for 5-star luxury, but if you are looking for clean, comfortable accommodation at the lowest price in Honfleur (as far as I could find...) then we highly recommend the Auberge de la Claire.

I guess you get what you pay for and there is always the option of upgrading but this hotel certinaly didnt add to the pleasure and attractiveness of honfleur. I see feedback on this site is polarised. We are clear that our experience was on the negative side. The accomodation is clean, but very basic. The building was tired and the service, although reasonably friendly, was also tired. If you stay, plan for a 20 minute walk into the town centre.

We booked this hotel due to the reviews on Trip Advisor, it was a mistake. We could not believe the hotel we saw was the same as the one all the positive reviews were written about. The hotel was on the outskirts of town, it seemed to have a split personality, half being a restaurant that appeared to be pleasant enough, the other half being a depressing motel type building. We were given a key to our room (15) and went up to check it out. It was small, drab, depressing and grim. It was easily the worst room we had seen in a 3 week touring holiday of France and Spain by quite a long way. We simply walked out and found another hotel. The best way I can describe it is that we wrote off our 75 euro booking fee rather than spend a night here. When I told the owner we were not staying he offered us the choice of 2 other rooms. If they had better rooms why did they try and palm us off with a small shabby room in the first place.
Do not even consider staying here, there are far better rooms nearer the centre of town at a similar price.

This was a great place to stay in Honfleur. The hotel is beautiful and the location = just perfect.
Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Beds are very comfortable and everything was super clean. This is the first hotel ever that I found superclean - which is for me very important.
There is some kind of perfection in the environment, atmosphere of the hotel - nothing was too much trouble to arrange in this family run hotel, so you just switch your brain off and let the hotel take the strain!
I would definitely return to Honfleur and would stay at this hotel again. Highly recommended to us and from now on by us as well.
