“great location but very expensive for what it is”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Fabulous location, car park not the largest and requiring some shuffling with people watching in front and behind in oder to get the car out again the following morning, thanks to idiotic parking by other car owners. room VERY expensive for what it is, no view of the courtyard, just of corrugated rooftops out of a small window at head-height. The room was in desperate need of redecoration, the wallpaper was ripped and peeling, there were holes in the walls and ceilings and loose tiles in the bathroom, the one tile was merely propped up against the bath panel. There was also no shower curtain over the bath which meant a shower flooded the whole floor. Breakfasts were incredibly expensive, so we skipped those. We also believed on laterooms that the room we booked was a "superior" room, when in fact we were put into a "standard" room so watch out for that!

HOWEVER, the bad was HUGE and very comfy and it is perfectly located for the harbour, just a short stroll away, but I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't have any room under 10(ground floor and can be tricky to get out of the door with cases if...

This is the second time we have used this hotel for a one night stopover in Honfleur. It is in a great location, walking centre to everywhere, and free parking, though you can't pre-book so need to get there early! Also there is free wi-fi in the room, with a code from reception. The rooms are fine, but very small toilet and bathroom (we were in the standard room) but for a night it's fine! It could do with a shower curtain or glass door for the shower, which is in the bath, as otherwise you can soak the bathroom! The light in the bedroom isn't great (difficult to see to put make up on!) but for a night, it's absolutely fine!

I had booked this hotel online to meet up with my parents after their cruise up the Seine. I found the hotel to be very reasonably priced for the area. Also the staff very accommodating and helpful. Very clean also with interesting touches in decor.

Honfleur was the last of our destinations on a long Europe holiday, and thus had to compete with a lot of fantastic experiences we enjoyed along the way. The Hotel La Diligence did not let us down one bit. We enjoyed a large room with an even larger ensuite with the hotel situated right at the entrance to the WOW factor rated Honfleur. The room was immaculately clean on the ground floor which made it easy with our large suitcases. The staff could speak english which was a bonus. There is a security gate which can be operated by the guests with their room keys. The optional Breakfast offered a variety of continental choices and was quite adequate.
We recommend this hotel wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to experience a few days in this stunningly beautiful Town.
Thank you to Maryse and all the staff for having made our stay special.

Great location with parking - just a short walk to the harbour. Lovely to be able to stroll back after an evening meal on the harbour side. We stayed for two nights in a quiet, very comfortable and clean room on the second floor. Central heating system was great and much appreciated. Gallons of piping hot water and lots of towels. Oriental, male receptionist and breakfast staff were friendly with nothing being too much trouble.
Having read some of the other feedback all I can say is 'IT'S 3 STAR!' OK, some of the decor was a bit dated but I wasn't really expecting a boutique hotel. - Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms had seating on their balconies. Lovely to sit out early evening with a drink, if y...

Being a very busy Sunday, it was the only hotel, near the old harbor, with vacancy. We decided to book at once because the exterior looked nice, plus there was the sign "Logis" and a parking at the backyard. We took the key, we parked and we left the place so to visit the beautiful Honfleur by daylight.
After horrible dinner at the old harbour we went to our room. Behind the main building there is a yard with two rows of rooms - ground floor and 1st floor [Motel type]- with the doors opening to the yard. The room was filthy, terribly decorated with cheap multicolour fabrics, furnitures, lights bed sheets, and a blanket with stains of blood and something"yellow".
We felt we were in the "wrong" place. But being late at night we didn't have any other choice but...to sleep with our clothes on, without blanket [the heating was good] and by using two of our own towels as pillow cases.
The next morning, we explained to the reception what we experienced, but we faced a very cool and indifferent attitude.
Price: 97 euro double room N,5 , without breakfast.
After this experience we won't be very enthusiastic [as we used to be] when we see the sign "Logis"

We stayed at the Hotel La Diligence last weekend and were stunned by the lack of maintainance at the hotel. It is stuck in a 1980's time warp, with busy flowery wall paper/bedspreads, paper thin walls with no sound proofing, no shower curtain, broken mirror in the bathroom, blown light bulbs,worn out towels and dressing gowns, breakfast was a shambles and mean. We took a walk around the town at some of the other 3 star hotels, all of which were of a much higher standard. The Hotel Diligence was the one thing that spoilt our weekend away.
