We’ve stayed at the hotel several times over the years and were pleased to see that it has retained its charm and its atmosphere, and that the town of Bricqebec has, if anything, become more lively and picturesque.

During our most recent stay we got a strong sense that the hotel has recently changed ownership and / or management - the cooking was better than we remembered and we’re pretty sure that the price of the set menus had increased quite a bit since we made our booking back in July, but the “front of house” was frustratingly slow and imprecise - it took 20 minutes for our bar order to materialise (although there were no other punters in the bar and plenty of staff about); no offer of any nibbles / amuse-bouche either in the bar or at table; no menus to look at in the bar; slow service at table, including having to ask three times for basic stuff like some butter; choice of a pretty basic white wine “out of stock”; the menus weren’t clear and consistent in their presentation of what was on offer so were hard to navigate; poor wifi / computer connection (which also meant we were unable to pay by card and had to go and get cash); the initial bill contained four mistakes that had to be rectified, and so on.

Come on - you’ve got a fabulous location, a good chef, your prices are OK, but you’ve got to improve your levels of service.

Stayed here twice and when travelling via the ferry to France it is well located on the Cherbourg peninsula.

Check-in/check-out - excellent.
Rooms - comfortable, basic but charming.
Breakfast - reasonable choice
Atmosphere - wonderful
Staff/Management - welcoming and friendly.
The town itself has a super Monday market - classic French market that takes over a large part of the town with all and sundry for sale.

Certainly on my list to stay again.

Stayed: June 2017

This is a great place to stay, on the way back to Cherbourg for a ferry crossing. If you stay on a Sunday, there is a fabulous market just outside the Chateau, starting early on Monday morning, where you can wander, buy some treats and eat them in the local cafes, with a delicious coffee. Try the Artisan bakery for Pain au Raisin, or Bacon& Cheese Grignette. Yum!
This was our third stay here, and we really noticed the effect that the new owners have had. There is now a very pleasant outside terrace with seats, parasols & new planters where you can enjoy the internal area of the Bricqubec castle with a drink or coffee.
We had a De Luxe room which is a small supplement on the standard room, but gives a lot more space, and we had a nice view from the front of the hotel. Apparently the new management is planning to revamp a lot of the rooms, which will be excellent. (Hopefully they keep the colours quiet and restrained to let the structure of the Chateau be the hero of the piece!)
Layout of Reception / Bar/ Restaurant much improved downstairs as well!
Good luck to the new team and congrats on a good start!

Room Tip: In 2015 had a "family room" = dbl room + sngl room+ large terrace for a v. reasonable price. (Teen son v. happy with own room with terrace!)

Arrived after a long journey only to be told the restaurant was closed for the first two nights of our stay (& it was in the week) which was not mentioned when we booked. Luckily we found an excellent one nearby. Breakfast choice was limited but adequate and expensive in comparison with other places we have stayed & the wi fi slow. The good points were the room & also a mini bar / fridge along with friendly staff.

Close enough to make a nice overnight stop. Adequate parking and comfortable rooms. The location is rural and very quiet which is relaxing. The menu is varied, the quality is good and the service is good with a good selection of local wines and ciders.
