Dear Guest, Thanks for the time taken to post this review about the Gold Beach Hotel. Our building indeed enjoys a calm location in Asnelles while being close to the Gold beach and the city centre. We are anxious to satisfy you both by the services of our hotel and those of our restaurant which is by the way very popular with the non-residents for its local specialties and its seafood. Do not hesitate to submit your suggestions by private message. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again. Vito IUZZOLINO, General manager

Excellent location for D-Day beaches, but hot !

Posted Aug 7, 2017 on Hotels
We stayed for two nights at the Gold Beach hotel. It is more of an apartment hotel, and our room was equipped with a kitchenette on the first level, and our bed on the upper level. However, the bedroom area is in the unventilated apex of the roof, which means that all the heat in the apartment rises and there is nowhere for it to escape! Even with the window on the lower level open for the night and the provided fun running at full blast, we found the temperature at night very challenging for sleeping - and that was only with daytime temperatures in the mid 20s! A shame really, as the addition of a small, opening skylight or vent would make a big difference. The bathroom was "OK": it looked tired and the shower had seen better days. The location is great for the D-Day beaches, but be aware that there is not much happening in Asnelles itself, though nearby Arromanches offers much more choice for eating out, etc. All-in-all, it was passable, but we would not choose to stay here again.

The location was ideal. Breakfast was o.k Staff very helpful and polite. No A/C so room was very hot and you couldn't open a window. We were on the ground floor and the only opening was a patio door which you couldn't leave open at night. There wasn't a bar/restaurant for refreshments. There was no remote control for the tv. There was a horrible smell in my room that came from the wet room-I think

Dear Indie, Thanks for sharing your experience in our hotel. We are glad you found our location convenient. In fact, we are a few meters away from the Gold Beach and 10 mn from Arromanches city centre. Your compliment towards our collaborators is well appreciated. Thanks for your positive assessment on the breakfast. We took note of your remarks. Our apologies for the inconvenience. We urge our guests to warn us if they find something unusual in their rooms so we can intervene accordingly. Could you give us your room number by private message so we can check the origin of the smell. We care about your welfare. As for the air-conditioning, we are installing it progressively in the rooms. Note that our restaurant "LeResto", located directly on the landing beaches serves local flavors and seafood plus a wide selection of wines and ciders from the region. Don't hesitate to contact the reception for more information. We want to point out that each room has usually a remote control for the TV. We have new ones available at the front desk upon request. We hope to have the occasion to welcome you again. Yours sincerely, Vito IUZZOLINO, General manager

Gold Beach Hotel great service outdated building

Posted Jul 24, 2017 on Hotels
Gold Beach Hotel was decent. Check-in was fast and the front desk staff was very welcoming! The restaurant served good food and the breakfast was good. The rooms were very worn and didn't feel clean. It did the trick for one night. It needs to be renovated. It was close to other sights as well.

Nice staff...

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Fast and friendly check in. The owner was very pleasant and gave us directions to the various sites around. The hotel lacked some creature comforts however. Was not aware that the air conditioning was not there...and was a warm evening. Mind you there was a large window that opened and got more comfortable by morning. There were different things smeared on the wall in various areas...not sure what it was. Finally there were no large towels to use for shower. For one night this accommodation did the job. A bit pricey for what you get comparatively.

Great stay to tour Normandy beaches!

Posted May 21, 2017 on Hotels
An excellent spot for staying to rest after visiting the Normandy Beaches.. Small kitchen provided thus you can make your own cooking too. Lots of free parking for visitors coming in by car.. We stayed here for 3 nights visiting Juno, Sword, Gold and Omaha Beaches, even including Pegasus Bridge, Bayeux and Caen along the way. Our final day we visited Mont St Michel which is about 2 hours drive from this hotel. Only that because the weather starts changing to warm, but there was no air condition thus we have to open our windows and on the fan.. Other than that everything was great!
