“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We arrived a day earlier than planned and the charming owner found a room for the extra night without any fuss or bother. The room was clean,spacious and pleasantly furnished.The breakfast was excellent with a good variety of bread,cereal,yogurt and croissant
The hotel is in an excellent position for exploring the delightful town of Bernay and the Saturday market is literally right outside the front door. There is parking in the courtyard of the hotel. There is no restaurant but there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. The owner and his wife speak good english and went out of their way to make us welcome .
Only complaint is that the towels in the bathroom were only changed once in our four night stay but that may have been an oversight of the chambermaids. Also the mattress had some kind of plastic protector under the sheet and as the weather was warm it made the bed quite hot.

Stayed with one child and husband, when I saw the room I was a bit disappointed but it was clean, the breakfast was ok, but you only get one croissant per person, which I felt :( . Te service was good, the town is lovely, and on market day it's special . The parking was fine, and there is ample of extra space for trailer in near by parking lot!

After a weary journey and finding that hotels in other towns weren't even open on a Sunday (!?) this hotel was our saviour!

It's incredible beautiful lobby/bar area is just as beautiful as the town it's set in. The welcome we had was just do lovely, our French isn't great but we muddled by with the help of the lovely staff. We had drinks in the bar, as the town was shut for the evening, and the lovely lady even bought over English magazines for me. Perfect.

The rooms are comfortable and what you'd expect for the very reasonable prices which are a lot less than you'd pay in the coast.

All in all I'd happily recommend the hotel and the area.

We used this hotel as a stop over on 10 August and stayed in room 38. The triple room was perfect for our family and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was a standard continental, but the owner was very attentive to all the guests needs. We will be back in the Autumn half term and have no problems with recommending this hotel to anybody either looking for a break in Normandy or needing a stopover back to the UK. Also Bernay is a real gem of a town, well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Free WiFi in all rooms, the superior room my parents had was excellent!

We booked the hotel online from our home in England,we chose the superior room which was lovely and spacious,tastefully furnished and very comfortable.There was free Wi-Fi available,parking for a small fee and tv which unfortunately was transmitting only in French (but then we were in France!)
The owner booked us in on arrival and spoke English (thankfully) and suggested a good place to eat after our long journey. My wife and I enjoyed a really comfortable night's rest then enjoyed a very nice buffet breakfast.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and enjoy the town of Bernay which is stunning.
Very many thanks to the owners who were running the hotel for giving us a most enjoyable stay.

Staff were very helpful and accommodating. This hotel is in a charming location, well-placed for the town, and we liked its old-world feel. Our room was nicely furnished and felt homely and cottage-like. Breakfast was very good. Limited car parking is available (at a price). We will be staying here again, as it is a convenient distance from Calais.

We could not book a hotel in Rouen due to an annual event and decided to stay here en route to our holiday destination. We were glad we did. This hotel is a little gem. The new owners made us feel very welcome evn though they spoke little English and we spoke even less French. It was very handy to be able to park the car in the courtyard and not on the road or public car park. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathroom was of an excellent quality. It was in walking distance of shops and restaurants. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
