“Well placed hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012 via mobile

Booked the hotel for the night before the ferry home. Had a double room for myself and my 5 year old child. Room a little on the small side but very clean and overlooked main square, which kept my child entertained watching ferries,traffic and the fair! Staff welcomed my child. Only negative would be they do not allow you to take drinks from the bar to your room, however when I explained I was alone with my child, who was very tired at 9.30pm the manager agreed to let me take a drink with me, which was very welcome after a six hour drive. Ideally placed to have a long walk to the beach and town centre. Continental breakfast was enough to feed the two of us. Would definitely use again, very good value.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We were traveling from Ouistreham (Caen) to Portsmouth on Brittany Ferries, and decided to drive during the day and stay overnight in Ouistreham, taking the 8.30 am boat to Portsmouth, instead of trying to sleep on a bunk bed! The Phare is only 5 minutes from the ferry port, so perfectly situated for a quick morning getaway. There is parking outside and a large public carpark opposite if these spaces are full.
Our double room was comfortable and warm, with a great view of the lighthouse and town. We could see the ferries arrive from our window. There was an en-suite shower and toilet, and all for €56 a night!
The hotel is also a bar and brasserie, so hot drinks etc and snacks are available all the while it is open; which, not surprisingly, seems to coincide with ferry arrival & departures.
Check-in was quick and easy, the staff are helpful and welcoming.
There are plenty of restaurants in easy walking distance, catering for all price ranges, and for sunny days the sandy beach is a pleasant short stroll away.
Continental breakfast is available for a reasonable cost in the morning.
Not surprisingly, we also stayed there on our return trip, arriving in the evening, so had a fresh start for our drive down through France.
