“Only Place to Stay in Arromanches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2012

We did a lot of research before deciding where to launch our family's tour of the DDay Beaches. There were other options right on the water, which has its appeal, but hands down this proved to be what we'd hoped for in terms of local welcome and warmth. The hotel is immaculately kept with pride by a wonderful family committed to every detail. The rooms are simple, extremely clean and newly redone. Lovely starched linens and new, comfortable beds. Very accommodating of families/children.

As for the meals, we were demi-pension, thus had both dinner and breakfast. Sophie, who co-runs the hotel with her husband, takes pride in every detail -- from the table settings to each of the generous courses. Her offerings are creative, delicious and purchased fresh based on the market daily. Enjoy the warm reception area and dining, where the proprietors will dote on you!

This was the perfect point of departure for our tour (quick walk to the local DDay museum and impressive Arromanches coast, where an amazingly elaborate articifical harbor was erected in a matter of days following the June 6th invasion of allied forces). We even liked the dreary winter weather, which somehow seemed fitting!

We stayed in the Mulberry after reviewing the comments on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly, the room was clean and confortable. By chance we didn't had much luggage and were young, the staircase is very small and absolutely not suited for unfit people. The restaurant offers a great menu. Not much choice, but very good food. The breakfast was also very nice.
Pro : staff, food, location
Cons : parking (street), unsuitable for elderly or physically impaired people (staircase).

I can't recommend a better place to stay while taking in the sights of Normandy. I just wish we would have spent 5 days here and only 2 days in Paris instead of the other way around. When we arrived, I realized that I booked the wrong week. No matter, Sophie and her family quickly made up a vacant room and treated us like we were their only guests. They even found a second room for my parents at another B&B just a block away from us (they loved it). Breakfasts were great and dinners even better. If you are looking to visit Normandy, STAY AT THE HOTEL LE MULBERRY!

We spent 4 nights at Le Mulberry. The room was clean and comfortable but basic. I would have liked a kettle for that all important early morning cuppa.

If you get rooms 7, 8 or 9 - beware. They are at the back and right next to the church. We didn't mind as they switch off at 10pm and don't start again till 7 in the morning. But if you want an early night or a lie in - forget it.

Breakfast was simple but good - bread & croissant with a good selection of jams plus delicious coffee and the largest selection of teas I have ever seen. We didn't eat at the restaurant in the evening but the menu looked pretty good.

Very friendly family run hotel and a good base for exploring the area

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front

We chose Le Mulberry primarily based on it's location within Arromanches (5 minutes from the beach/ main street) and the fact the rooms could fit a family of 4. We stayed for 4 nights at the end of August with our 2 children aged 10 and 8. We received a very friendly welcome from the owner (who spoke good English) and his staff.

This feels essentially like a restaurant (an excellent one) with a number of rooms attached. Our family room was accessed from the rear and overlooked a pretty street/ church. The room was basic and slightly full with the double/ single/ pull out bed but very clean. The only disadvantage of being so close to the church was that we were woken up by the bells at 7am (it rang hourly
from 7am - 10pm). However, there is an excellent breakfast waiting and so much to see and do in the area so it really wasn't a problem.

We ate in the restaurant on site on our last night and it was our best meal of the trip. On the other days we walked to the main street parallel with the beach and tried the various restaurants there.

Arromanches is a beautiful little town with it's Mulberry harbour, interesting small museum explaining about the D Day landings and the 360 degree cinema up high. We visited each of the 5 D Day landing beaches and several museums (Pointe du hoc, American cemetery visitor centre, site hillman at Colleville Montgomery) as well as some very poignant cemeteries.

Arromanches is just a short drive from Bayeux, a beautiful old city with very interesting museum housing the Bayeux tapestry which the children were very interested to see (audio guides provided) .

Overall , a very friendly hotel in a beautiful town and in a region rich in history. Definitely worth a visit! We just need to spend more time next time.
