We both had a turbot dish, which was ruined by a grossly over-salted bed of spinach. I returned a few minutes later and it was a bit warmer though not hot and the eggs had set solid. Everything is self-service. The room would be described as comfortably furnished with a modern sense. Thankfully we found a nice restaurant, even if we did get rather soaked, with help of the receptionist who gave us a map and directions to the town centre. Unfortunately, by the time we got back from our evening meal in the town, all the cars had gone, so we missed a photo opp. Top food at reasonable prices and again, very friendly staff. The decor was attractive for a modern hotel of this type, everything worked and the lounge/bar area and breakfast room were very comfortable. Great hotel - quiet, clean rooms, good amenities, restaurant and food options are good, lovely views over the fields but best of all is the friendly service and excellent hospitality. We were the only uk people in the restaurant. We stayed at this hotel as a stopover after using ferry and before travelling south. Nice restaurant on site too. Need to find a quality hotel in Ouistreham, France? Nice rooms and ok breakfast. The hotel is definitely one of the best in town. Nothing special it was just a stopover and not as good at Mercure in Saumur. The rooms are well set out with good decor. The head waitress seemed to think that it was our fault for not complaining as soon as we received the dish. show more, For meetings and events enquiries please call 0844 387 62 40, The hotel was very pleasant, the staff were very welcoming, the receptionist especially, breakfast was average but it was really nice to have someone cook eggs, We had a meal in the restaurant the nig... more, The hotel was very pleasant, the staff were very welcoming, the receptionist especially, breakfast was average but it was really nice to have someone cook eggs, We had a meal in the restaurant the night before and it was one of the best meals I had eaten all trip. We hope you will come back and see us again soon. There's a supermarket and petrol station not one minute's drive away. Whereas many guests on the Wednesday had been British, either arriving on the ferry or due to leave the next day, on the Thursday night it was a mixture with mostly French families and some Belgians. We were a bit surprised by the size of the room and especially the bathroom. This Best Western is located in Ouistreham, 2 km from the ferry terminal and 7 km from Normandy's famous landing beaches. Staff were very good particularly an extremely helpful receptionist who translated the whole menu for us as we considered eating in the Restaurant. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons, Thank you for your comment regarding your recent stay at our property. They were also happy to put our bikes in secure storage area so we didn't need to keep them in the rooms. Don't use this hotel. Since your stay, we made many improvement. Like many people we used this hotel for a one night stay after landing quite latein the evening from the ferry. Thoroughly recommend. We stayed for one night stop over ready for catching the ferry next morning. Would happily come back for an overnight stop. We hope you will come back and see us again soon. We hope you will come back and see us again in Ouistreham. Lovely clean and spacious room and no noise heard from other rooms or guests.

If you stay here make sure to h... more, The hotel is definitely one of the best in town. Very helpful staff!! Best Western Hotel La Mare Ô Poissons Best Western Hotel La Mare Ô Poissons is a hotel in Ouistreham. We have stayed at this hotel before, since then a pool has been added. Very close to the Port, but unfortunately arrived on a Public Holiday so there wasn't much open in Local Area, but Receptionist translated the local takeaway menu who delivered food for the evening. The facilities were fine and it was a short walk into town. We had dinner the first night which was lovely however although they state they speak English, the girls in the restaurant dont, so bit of a language barrier there. Parking is secured overnight. A minimum length stay restriction applies on the date you have selected for this hotel. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. We ate in the restaurant attached to the hotel (but not owned by the hotel itself) and had a fantastic meal. The breakfast room was also unpleasantly cold. We hope you will come back and see us again soon. Secure parking,so overall an excellent stay. Guests can relax in the hotel’s lounge with a free newspaper. Exclusive discounts always available to Rewards members. And,many thanks to the gentleman at the front desk that helped us book our hotel room the following night in a different city. This comment should appear on their trip advisor page in order to inform their futur customers. Very attentive staff. We hope that you enjoyed the hotel and Ouistreham even if you had a short stay. My mattress was the wrong side up. Good size rooms, clean and tidy.The food was very good in the adjacent restaurant. We would be very interested to have your feedback concerning our breakfast ? The staff were very helpful. Sincerely, Best Wetern La Mare ô Poissons. The environment is very tastefully decorated with big white squishy couches and armchairs and a modern fake fire and other modern decoration in black and white. We would be very interested to have your feedback concerning our breakfast ? Breakfast was served in a dining area just off the bar and, although there was plenty of choice it was not to my taste. The one staff member visible was occupied in the breakfast room. The restaurant is pretty up market, but has three course menus from 27€ which I think was reasonable for a very high quality dinner. The breakfast is good and you get 24h free internet. Its only a 3 minute drive from the ferry port in a quiet lication, easily found. The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and willing to go the extra mile. We dined in for the first time on the most recent visit, and were underwhelmed. I have stayed here a couple of times - using the hotel as a base to explore the region and also as a stopover venue before travelling onwards. Great place to stop over on our way down from / back to the uk via Ouistreham - just a couple of minutes from the ferry port. The restaurant served beuatiful dishes, but lacked taste. For your next stay, do not hesiate to ask reception if you don't want the duvet and we will remove it before your arrival. Guests can enjoy the outdoor heated pool. Otherwise cannot fault this hotel, its staff or the breakfast. Our guest now have CNN and BBC on their TV but also all the british and american movies of the channel Canal+ in english. Recommend this hotel. Comfy beds, room on the tight side but perfect for stop over. Hotel is surely good, though the bathroom is really small. Perfect location for our needs, perfect staff, our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were all English speakers and extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble and any queries were attended to immediately. Best Western La Mare O Poissons located in Ouistreham at 68 Rue Emile Herbline, Ouistreham, 14150, France. That wasn't the French cuisine that we were looking forward to on our last evening. The food wine and service was excellent. Thank you once again to Housekeeping and Claudine on reception for returning my necklace. We stayed one Sunday evening as a ferry stop over and after a 10 hour drive were met with a smiling helpful face. We were never asked if we wanted to book a table or warned it gets busy so it was a bit of a let down when we discovered we were not able to eat at our own hotel. It is very well placed for the Ouistreham ferry and is definitely a cut above the other hotels that weve stayed in in Ouistreham. A very fitting end to a great week. To book, call our team on 0800 393130 (Freephone) and we will ensure that your room meets all of your requirements. Good size rooms, clean and tidy.The food was very good in the adjacent restaurant. 00 EUR per person per day tax collected at hotel effective April 1st 2012. Pleasant bar café area with real fire, lovely welcome indeed.. Others have mentioned that rooms are small but the one we had I don't think could be considered so. The room was small but adequate and spotlessly clean. If you would rather start a new search, please click here or please change your dates or check availability below. Room very nice and comfortable,bed is large and comfortable to. We understand that travelling with children under 2 can take a lot of planning - so let us help. Nice rooms and ok breakfast. Different staff, but just as friendly, immaculately clean and comfortable room and a good night's sleep. The Best Western Hotel La Mare O Poissons is ideally located between the sea, the D-Day sites and the car ferries terminal. Arriving on late evening ferry, this is just the place you want to find. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons, madmaison2014, Farnborough, United Kingdom, nomadbackwards, Farnborough, United Kingdom, Geoff and Wendy S, Manchester, United Kingdom. Difficult to find reception and the receptionist was tepid. Getting to the hotel as Ouistreham is well posted on the French highways as it is a ferry port to the UK. Our room wasn't comfortable - the air con was efficient but very noisy, the beds were uncomfortable and the toilet broke - although fixed quickly by the receptionist. Best Western Hotel La Mare O Poissons, Ouistreham. I think we could probably stand staying at the hotel for a couple of nights, but for an elongated holiday stay, I think we would want something with more 'French-ness' - but the welcome received and amenities will mean that when next we catch the ferry to Caen, we shall almost certainly stay over at this hotel. Breakfast excellent. Sincerely, Best Western La Mare ô Poissons, We stayed for 2 nights, both receptionists were friendly and helpful. The weather wasn't good but there was enough to look at and walk around to work up an appetite for the evening meal. Well done......Top Marks! First time in the area. Stay at this 3-star business-friendly hotel in Ouistreham. A great location to begin or end ones tour of France for the UK. Very convenient for the ferry port and a 2 minute drive to town centre to find restaurants [if you don't want to eat in the hotel]. Large, clean hotel rooms with all the necessary amenities - including bottles of water. You will hear someone farting on the next floor at other end of hotel. The welcome was warm and friendly and the staff were all very excited with the arrival of their new 'bar' which was being installed as we sat and drank.......we had 2 bottles of wine, and as a lovely surprise the hotel owner (who was supervising the instillation, unbeknownst to us) gave us our second bottle free due to the disruption....a lovely gesture.

Good breakfast and the restaurant attached was well worth a visit. Adrian and Helen. I had to go up and down the corridors calling out 'Bonjour!' This Best Western is located in Ouistreham, 2 km from the ferry terminal and 7 km from Normandy's famous landing beaches. We hope you will come back and see us again soon (with you dog of course!). Short staffed at breakfast and tables left uncleared and not laid up meaning we had to share with 2 strangers. The cornflakes contained some broken plastic, which I discovered when I found myself crunching it. Enjoy free WiFi, free parking and an indoor pool. Highlights at this hotel include a restaurant, an indoor swimming pool, and free self parking. We decided to eat in the restaurant - which was very very expensive so we only had a main course but the food was excellent. Enjoy your stay. Great location for the ferry port and easy parking. Business guests praise the breakfast. Modern very clean rooms with all necessary facilities for an overnight stay. It was a pleasure to host you in our hotel. We have just spent a night here and, as always, it was excellent. Located within a 5-minute walk of Centre Equestre de Ouistreham, Best Western La Mare o Poissons is within 2 miles (3 km) of Museum of the Atlantic Wall. Nice rooms and ok breakfast.

There is a fabulous museum on site staffed by Canadians which also gives a great tour on German tunnels, Bunker, and Command Post. I checked into a single room. Regards Leslie. The restaurant was busy as there isn't an alternative nearby so the service was a bit slow. That is the only negative experience out of our stay. We had a very good night's sleep, very comfortable. Best Western Hotel La Mare O Poissons, Ouistreham. Another great stay at this Best Western hotel. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons. We stayed here for 3 nights and were met by a very serviceminded hostess, speaking english. But next time, if you ask the receptionnist, she can change the settings of you TV and put every English/american movies and series in English (thanks to our new TVs). Take a look through our photo library, read reviews from real guests and book now with our Price Guarantee. After returning to our room after dinner, there was a knock at our door. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons. The rooms were very clean and our bedsheets were changed daily. Parking is somewhat limited and you may have to carry bags to the hotel from the car park. Window had no safety catch and could only be open or closed and as on the ground floor a little worried during the night but pulled curtain across and used table lamp pushed up against it as a "burglar alarm". We asked about local restaurants and were carefully advised and were to drive or walk to. My first choice hotel, in the centre of Ouistreham, was fully booked which slightly surprised me, but this hotel just out of town had space. The breakfast is well worth taking, having a selection of both hot and cold buffet at a very reasonable price Prefer a room on the ground floor at the front if you want to keep an eye on your car. Golfers will have the opportunity to find approximately 10 golf courses less than 40 kilometers from our property.

Unfortunately we only have Euronews as an English channel in our hotel. lamareopoissons, Responsable réception at BEST WESTERN Hotel La Mare O Poissons, responded to this review Thank you for your comment regarding your recent stay at our property. Caen retains it's character and the hotel does it justice. We were made very welcome despite staff being clearly overworked; tending to reception, bar, snack bar and everything in general. There is free parking on site and the wifi is good. The Best Western® Hotel La Mare O Poissons is ideally located between the sea, the D-Day sites and the car ferries terminal. lamareopoissons, Responsable réception at BEST WESTERN Hotel La Mare O Poissons, responded to this review Thank you for your comment regarding your recent stay at our property. We have reviews of the best places to see in Ouistreham. Pity. Unless you are disabled and need adapted facilities, avoid room 12. We booked a table when we checked in and were lucky enough to get one. On returning to the UK I realised I couldn't find my small diamond necklace and was fairly sure I could have knocked it onto the floor of our room. The poor girl had to struggle with a very heavy tray, make two trips to deliver wine and other drinks, and it beggers belief that some idiot in management hadn't thought to provide trolleys for room service? We stayed 2 nights at this hotel while visiting Caen and Normandy area. Very friendly personnel, clean and quiet hotel with recent rooms, just off the town's main roundabout, and including a free car park within the property if you have a carload of stuff you'd rather not leave out in the street. Only 5 minutes from terminal you are assured a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed before onward travel. Hotel on the edge of town and convenient for exploring war history. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. At 7.30 pm a very over worked young lady, who was also the receptionist, nervously knocked on the door to inform us that the restaurant was full and could not accomodate us. Hotel has a nice bar where you can end a long day around a fire in comfortable armchairs. Well located for a bike tour till Caen though a bit far from the beach (if walking). Password reset instructions have been sent to your email.

The selection included both hold and cold options with wonderful fresh breads of various assortments. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. We arrived very late this time with our 2 sleepy kids. Late breakfast not bad either. Nothing open on Sunday except McDonald's that is only a 5 minute walk. My husband ordered Smoked Salmon on scrambled eggs. The beds are very firm. Breakfast is not "super de luxe" but everything you want is available (different meats, cheese, eggs etc). Car park was full but thankfully we were told it was okay to park in the space by the office. Sincerely, Best Western La Mare ô Poissons, Thank you for your comment regarding your recent stay at our property. We have stayed in Ouistreham before but wanted a hotel with more facilities and air con. I stayed here a few months ago as I was heading south to the Dordogne. We have used this hotel many times so it's sad to see that it appears to be going downhill. I asked when the restaurant would open and was told that it was closed that night because a self-congratulatory promotional marketing bash for local dignitaries was being held by the hotel. To be fair I heard no normal noise from other rooms, it was only when things were dropped. They do have a small bar available in the evening that is manned by the receptionist but she did a wonderful job waiting on our group each evening. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The breakfast was good. The attached restaurant is very expensive, but there are other restaurants nearby. Noisy bin collection and deliveries at 6am if you have the windows open. You will appreciate our comfortable rooms, refined, with Wi-Fi access, air-conditioning, flat-screen television, satellite channels and courtesy tray. Rooms are small but modern and have all you need for a one night stay. The rooms are up-market chain hotel standard; very comfortable but pretty much devoid of any character, but the beds are of a good size and appear to be new. We booked in to this hotel after a 6 hour drive from our camp site in the south of France ready to get the ferry from Caen. Great location for the ferry port and easy parking. It is strange that you are talking about an "adjacent workshop for motor repairs" because our only neighbour is Loison Traiteur (a large kitchen). Unfortunately no-one told me that, and the corridor lighting gives up short of the end room where I was. We used La Mare as a centre for a cycle trip with friends, since it is nice and close to the ferry port. We are happy to announce that is problem is now solved ! 68 Rue Emile Herbline • 14150 Ouistreham , France (show on map) Worldwide reservation numbers • Phone: +33 231375305 • Fax: +33 231374961 The Best Western® Hotel La Mare O Poissons is ideally located between the sea, the D-Day sites and the car ferries terminal.

I booked a two night stay through Brittany Ferries. Stayed there before. Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the Normandy area. we will certainly return soon. Stayed en route to the Vendee and then again on the way back. Easy to find on the outskirts of the town, excellent appearance, friendly and helpful staff at check in and check out. Ideal for those wishing to catch an early morning ferry or exploring the Normandy beaches. Unfortunatly we had a small problem with our water heater and hot water was taking a little bit more time than usual to arrive. Just about 5 mins to the port ,and easy to find . We hope you will come back and see us again soon. The room was a good size by European standards and very clean. I hope they can sort this out. We hope to see you again in our beautiful region of Normandy. Stay at this 3-star business-friendly hotel in Ouistreham. I was absolutely delighted to be told they did have it and a few days later it arrived back at my home address. We made the mistake on outward journey of thinking we had booked for breakfast but in fact hadn't - the website was misleading - and were shocked to be charged nearly €12 each for a basic breakfast. Very clean and practical and easy reach of the ferry terminal. Friendly reception staff nothing too much trouble, a nice calm place to arrive. Great location for driving around i Normandy experiencing D-day. Bar and lounge area really nice. We stayed here one night before catching the morning ferry. Our booking in and reception was handled very efficiently and professionally by a young woman who was most welcoming, and a good 'face' for the hotel. Lack of charm from restaurant staff, chaotic and stressed. Hotel has a nice bar where you can end a long day around a fire in comfortable armchairs. Very clean all over, staff very pleasant. There is a small bar which was really nice. Sadly the restaurant was fully booked as it is also used by non-guests so we had to travel into Ouistreham itself 2km away in the pouring rain. Room 12 is harder to heat because it is a larger one.

Best Regards La Mare ô Poissons, Thank you for your comment regarding your "recent" stay at our property. Loved the big shower! My husband and our nine year old daughter stayed here in August for five nights as we were attending a family wedding. But was adequate for what was needed and the bed was pretty comfy . After a bit of a nightmare their smiling receptionist was a very reassuring sight. Guests can relax in the hotel’s lounge with a free newspaper. We'd have been better going into Ouisterham to eat which (as we discovered later) was only a 20 minute walk. No other hotel gives the excellent service the staff provides at La Mare O Poissons. Lovely breakfast with plenty of choices. I had booked a table and i would advise you to so to ensure a place. It's a small hotel about 3 minutes from the ferry terminal. We have stayed in this hotel 3 times after a ferry trip from Portsmouth. Very clean. Tv shower etc. On behalf of our entire team and the restaurant, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff were very... more, We stayed for one night stop over ready for catching the ferry next morning. WiFi and parking are free, and this hotel also features an indoor pool. from the beach, 15 min. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant which although pricey, was very enjoyable in lovely surroundings. Sad to say the welcome was so frosty you wouldn't need ice in your drink to keep it cold. As we were only there for a brief overnight we didn't have a chance to use the restaurant or the pool - which looked quite small. If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. As a previous reviewer commented, things such as bread and bacon aren't replenished even though they run out quite early, and no one seems to check. WiFi and parking are free, and this hotel also features an indoor pool. Then I find that my single room at €105 has overnight become a double room at €120. The management is great. Kind regards Leslie. Staff helpful from initial booking to departure. We didn't stay for breakfast (had to make an early start) so can't comment on that. If using the ferry or visiting the beautiful Normandy countryside and the many WW2 sites, this hotel is well worth the stay. The Best Western® Hotel La Mare O Poissons is ideally located between the sea, the D-Day sites and the car ferries terminal.
