“Excellent, what a laugh”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Stayed here in June 2012.
We read reviews on this place and knew it was going to be fun. Upon arrival we were all welcomed by Bill and Carol, what hosts they are. Bikes parked up in a secure garage, we were shown to our rooms which were great, spacious comfy and clean. We wandered outside and the grounds here are beautiful and well maintained. Couple of beers in the bar which was well equiped (pool table, table tennis, dart board, table football, comfy seating) and we were called for dinner, a lovely meal was presented and devoured.
A great place to stay if your travelling around Normandy.
Bill/Carol, thanks a mill for the entertainment, it was priceless.

If you are visiting Normandie or Brittany, or just stopping over, you really do have to stay here. Bill and Carol made us feel extremely welcome from the outset. This is advertised as a bike friendly B & B and there were two other couples who were motorcyclists staying at the same time as we did, but I am sure that everyone gets 5 star treatment. Food was excellent, Carol is a fantastic cook Wine and banter flowed for the two nights that we were there. Fantastic experience, will definitely stay again.

Rather disappointing having read such positive reviews on Trip Advisor, the room (attic) and food was more expensive and lower quality in comparison to all other places we stayed this holiday. Lots of potential but all seems a bit complacent.

Initially just a stop over to visit Mont St Michel, we like this place so much. Should have stayed for more nights. Great English couple Bill and Carol. Beautifully renovated house, tastefully decorated. English afternoon tea, dinenr and breakfast were wonderful and nice change after all these rich French food during our month long driving trip in France. My daughter left behind her watch in the room and Bill is so kind to send this back to us.

If you're not a motorcyclist, don't be be put off by the "biker friendly" theme of the hotel. Bill and Carol are as welcoming and friendly as you could hope for. Expect to be offered tea or coffee when you arrive and, in the morning, a delicious breakfast. Our room was clean and cozy, as was the ensuite smallish bath. Grounds are spacious and attractive. Half-hour drive to Mont St. Michel on a direct route.
