“Excellent spot with a beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2010

Stayed at this hotel after spending the day in Normandie touring the D-Day beaches. Nice lobby with friendly staff who spoke English. Finding parking was a little difficult as it was in the back of the hotel and you need to follow little signs and then use the call box to reach the front desk but it is secure. Spacious rooms, very clean, and a great view of the fishing boats right outside our balcony. The little town has many restaurants and shops to explore and is a very short walk down the street and across a small bridge. I suggest skipping the 7 Euro each "breakfast" in the lobby. We found an excellent bakery in town that had yummy pasteries and even breakfast sandwiches that they heat up for you and we all ate for less than 7 Euros. Explore the local cider. Two thumbs up!

The Ibis Bayeux Port en Bessin is a great budget hotel.

The public area is open and colourful. Bar/Snaks available 24 hours. Breakfast from 6.30 to 10.30. 24 hour reception. The staff are friendly and helpful. They speak English if you do not speak French.

Free secure car parking at rear of hotel, access via a little drive around a couple of roads but clearly signposted.

Good sized room with T.V., Air Con, Desk Area, En-suite with shower, basic and toilet. The hotel is totally clean.

Free Wi-Fi plus a P.C. in public area which you can use for free.

Breakfast - A good French continental breakfast.

Port en Bessin is a lovely fishing port with good restaurants, a great place to relax and explore the WWII beaches and Bayeux.

As a former Hotel Contracts Manager I would give this hotel my professional seal of approval.

A very charming town! Close to the D Day sights. People were very friendly. Great pizza place across the canal. We watched the fishing boats through our window at night.

This hotel is right across the street from the marina and is very close to all D-day sights. There was even a bunker on the hill behind the hotel above the parking lot(free). Staff was very nice and spoke english very well. Rooms look to be brand new and were spotless. I Am planning to go back during summer time when the waterfront will be more pleasant.

The hotel was quiet , modern and comfortable, with an excellent secure car park. The location just a short walk from the centre of Port en Bessin is good. For the best value for money try booking ahead on line.

We stayed in the Ibis in Port en Bessin for one night as a stop over. The hotel is just like any other Ibis inside (although this is by no means a bad thing), the room was very clean, and ample size, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was great, and we even had a little balcony. The location of the hotel is fantastic, we had a view of the fishing boats docking and unloading their catch for the day.
Port en Bessin is a lovely place, there are some great little restaurants and shops just five minutes walk from the hotel.
The only small problem we had with the hotel was that it was a tad on the expensive side, however, despite this, we would be more than happy to go back there one day.
