“Town centre hotel with easy parking.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We stayed here on our return home from a motorcycling trip, and were pleased with the location, comfort and style of the hotel. Mine Host was most helpful, found us a good parking spot for the bike and offered us a choice of rooms. As ever in France he was pleased we tried to speak French but then took pity on us and reverted to English!! We were there on a National Holiday and he kindly explained the history behind the day.
The hotel is in an old building but rooms have had a recent make-over, and ours was in modern boutique style, comfortable and we got a great night's sleep. There are some rules posted but these are all to ensure guests have a good stay: For example eating in rooms is prohibited, but guests are welcome to use a table in the bar area for snacking.
We were on the top floor which was fine as there is a lift.

Although pretty much everything was closed we enjoyed walking round the interesting town and looking at the old timbered buildings. We saw plenty of (closed) bars and restaurants but ate at a take-away pizza place that also did eat-in at no extra charge.

If you use this hotel there is on-street parking available on the one-way street which is free for half an hour, (still get a free ticket though from the machine) which gives you time to check in the get a space in the court-yard. Cars cost 4 euro, or there are other options near -by.
This hotel is also an easy walk from the station. Apparently trains run to Paris...so there's a thought!

We'll use this hotel again when we are on a similar route.

We chose this place based on the reviews on this site and we weren't disappointed. The staff were really friendly and helpful - found us space to park our van, served breakfast early because we needed to make a prompt start and even recommended some places to watch the England World Cup game. Rooms were basic but clean. Would stay here again.

We stayed one night on way south. Welcoming and friendly hosts who speak some English. The room was fine and very clean with a comfortable bed. Some parking is also available for 4 euros in gthe courtyard outside the hotel. Breakfast was a decent continental breakfast. I would recommend it as a place to stay and Bernay is an interesting, pretty town. There are plenty of restaurants in Bernay but, as we found, most are closed on Mondays.

We stayed one night on our trip south and again on our trip home. Pleasant hosts with good English. The rooms were clean and comfortable. No restaurant, but we were directed to excellent dining places in the town. We were provided with a good continental breakfast and even helped with a route to avoid roadworks. The hotel is conveniently situated in the attractive and old town centre We would certainly stay again.

We stayed one night in this hotel on our return journey to the UK in August. The hosts speak good English and were incredibly friendly and helpful.....they showed us where to park and also offered some good evening meal suggestions in the town ( there is no restaurant in the hotel but Bernay is full of restaurants!). We stayed in the family room overlooking the Main Street. It was perfectly acceptable and clean. There was some noise from the street but you have to expect that in a hotel in the centre of a town.

Breakfast was continental ....croissants, bread cereals etc and was very pleasant. Bernay itself is a very pretty town and is well worth a visit. The Saturday market was spectacular and we enjoyed browsing in the morning before we went to catch the ferry home. All in all, a good value stopover hotel with some authentic French charm. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms over the street will have some noise, especially if you stay on a Friday night as they start s...
