“Good place to stay in Honfleur”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

We like to stay in Honfleur on our way back to the UK from Brittany and Hotel Diligence is perfectly fine as a place to stay. The courtyard looks lovely with geraniums planted all over. You may have trouble parking if you arrive late as the hotel only has limited availability for parking. The courtyard can be noisy if you are staying in the ground floor. Otherwise, good location, fine clean (although possibly slightly dated) rooms.

We were there for a weekend break and received a rather unenthusiastic welcome when we first arrived but this improved after when we asked where to go for dinner etc...

The location is great, 5 mins to walk to the port and the restaurants and a small free car park too. The outside of the hotel is quite nice and is in a former equestrian building which gives it character, however the rooms are a different story. Luckily, we had a special offer with champagne and breakfast, but we wouldn't have been happy to pay the full price. We booked the offer and then looked on tripadvisor pictures, which is when we were concerned about the decoration. (By then it was too late!)

Rooms need significant updating: this goes for the entire decoration and the bed was sinking in the middle which was not good. The room was clean, but is completely outdated from the carpet to the curtains. Bathroom and toilet were clean but shower curtain was missing which meant water escaped a fair bit.

Breakfast was better than expected with a buffet of fresh fruit, cheese, ham, croissants and pastries. We also had fresh coffee brought to the table with a smile. (table covers also need changing as holes are hidden by the salt and pepper pots). However, lady at breakfast was friendly and welcoming.

Could be a really nice hotel if the beds and decoration didn't let it down!

La Diligence was located in a terrific spot with a supermarket, pharmacy and post office close by, and just a 5 minute stroll to the waterfront and restaurant hub. The hotel provided a terrific breakfast daily, and the staff were courteous, friendly and exceedingly helpful. The room was warm, but a little dark. The bed was reasonably comfortable. There was a table and chair in the room, and further seating available directly outside the front door. The bathroom had a good shower, though surprisingly there was no shower curtain or screen, resulting in a very wet floor.
Honfleur is a stunning town, blending historical architecture, and waterfront beauty, with stunning light, much sought after by the impressionist painters in days gone.

We stayed one night, and were enchanted by the place. The atmosphere was wonderful, the staff very nice, the room sweet, and the parking free. Sure, it's not a 4 star hotel and all, but its character compensates what it lacks. We enjoyed it very much. :)

How anyone risks walking up the rickety stairs I am not sure, leaned on them to take a photo and nearly pushed them over. Our room was decorated by a grand mother who loves pink and roses, and then put a blanket with horse print. Hotel itself is close to everything, but really really needs a refurb.

Stayed in Hon Fluer will in France. The hotel looks great from the pictures, however, we found the rooms to be small, dirty, and old furniture (not antique but beat up). I didn't sleep well in this room at all. There are other options in Hon Fkuer as we checked them out for our next trip. Try another. The front desk personnel were helpful snf friendly and the outside appearance looks great until you open the door.
