The hotel is elegant without being too formal. The reality is that across the estuary from Honfleur is very industrial, so if you stay in a hotel with amazing views on this part of the coast, that is what you see! Personally for us, the setting was great. The spa is nice if very slightly dated. The room was excellent (room 27), triple aspect windows, huge, nice seating and dining area etc. We visited with our baby and dog and there was plenty of space for us all. Breakfast is generally high quality.
The restaurant is fabulous and the set menus are reasonably priced. Drinks are expensive but no more so than you would expect for a high end hotel.
The stand out part of our stay though was the manager (I wish I had taken his name but forgot) who met us in the drive, sorted out everything we needed with no fuss and bother (with a dog and baby there are lots of things that need sorting!). He was absolutely class leading. Finally, almost all the staff are extremely helpful and always smiling.
We will definitely be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than a century after being frequented by impressionist painters seeking inspiration from the magic light of the Côte Fleurie, the Ferme Saint Siméon still seems to still be nourished by tender nostalgia. Perched on the heights of Honfleur, this Normand-style building infused with the soul of yesteryear delicately embraces modern refinement. Facing the Seine river estuary, the rooms full of noble furniture, woodwork, luxurious fabrics,comfort and colours are spread like flower bouquets across the farm, the central building and the ‘Press’.Beneath the garden’s apple trees or in the refined decor of the gastronomic restaurant, guests will be delighted to discover the regional cuisine, after indulging in a relaxing treatment at the Spa, peacefully overlooking the sea. ... more less
