Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katefrancophile Great staff and convenient location
Convenient location in this interesting city, right by the park and ride (free bus to the centre) and opposite the historical (though rather ugly!) Atlantic Wall. Staff spoke English and were extremely helpful and friendly, bed comfy and room spacious. Only two drawbacks for us - not enough storage for clothes as we were staying nearly 2 weeks; and the hot drinks at breakfast were undrinkable. We hated the coffee, and although this is subjective, there can be no argument about the tea, which was Lipton's (very weak) and only lukewarm water was available. There was tea making equipment in our room but the milk provided was evaporated milk, again not suitable for tea. But you don't go to France for the tea, after all, so it was a very good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by David and Family The Way Things Should Be
This is a particularly well run hotel. I stay in IHG properties 65 to 70 nights per annum, and few if any of these other hotels are as well run as this one. It is the staff that are key. Yes breakfast is very good, the rooms are squeaky clean, and parking easy. But it is the attention to detail exhibited by all staff members, regardless of role, that really makes this property stand-out from the others I've visited. Jackie, and Eve (I think!) are worthy of particular mention.
