My husband and I booked a stay at Chez Marion for 3 nights 19/20/21 May while we visited the Normandy D-Day Landing Beaches. We had also booked another hotel in Caen for the following 2 nights but we were so impressed with the location, quiet village, seaview and excellent food that we decided to extend our stay in Chez Marion and cancelled our Caen stay. The bedroom, not too big, but was adequately furnished with large double bed, wardrobe and desk and 2 chairs. We had tea/coffee making facilites supplied. Iron & Ironing board was immediately supplied upon request. En suite had good shower, no bath but was adequate for our stay. Room is a little on the tired side with regard to decor but certainly did not take away from our stay. We had a wonderful seaview from our room which also looked out on a large green area (so quiet at night-bliss) We dined in the Restaurant for dinner on two evenings and both evenings the food and service was just wonderful. Good wine selection. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful with lots of cereals, juices, cold meats, cheese, yogurts & fruit and served by very pleasant staff in both places.

Room Tip: access to upper floors only by stairs

We decided to stay at the Chez Marion for 2 nights,rather than in Caen,as its better value for money. The hotel is close to the Merville sea front and lovely beach,and the town itself is pretty,with nicely laid out flowers,and more modern than most towns in the area. Not much to do though,but its nice enough walking about. The hotel owner gave us a nice welcome,and our room was spendidly clean and even had a kettle and tea/coffee,which is unusual for France! Parking is right outside and completely safe. Breakfast is the normal french,but with some lovely ham slices,and all the food was of good quality. We didnt eat in the restaurant as we were out,but the smell of fish and the quality of the decor showed that it was a good place for eating.We did glance at the prices,and it looked a bit expensive.There are a few places to eat in the town,but not a great choice,and of course,it being a seaside town,fish and shellfish/mussels etc featured highly on the menus!
The hotel is highly reccomended though.

Room Tip: Any room would be ok here

The staff at the Chez Marion are in the main very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and good value for the 3 nights we stayed. The restaurant serves very good food but it is somewhat pricey if you choose a la carte, best to have the demi pension room rate if you choose to eat at the hotel. The location of the hotel is very near the beach and the small town centre.

We had eaten at Chez Marion on previous trips, and chose the hotel for a 2-night break between our flight to Paris and our ultimate destination, the Cotentin peninsula. The restaurant was as we remembered - expertly-prepared local products on the Menu du Terroir, and the widest selection of Calvados anywhere - and the hotel itself was lovely.

In addition to napping, we enjoyed walking on the beautiful sandy beach, hiking the trail along the Orne estuary, and visiting Cabourg.

We stayed for one night here arriving on spec after a long drive. The welcome was warm, and the room fine and good value (and the shower was good!). We enjoyed our meal a lot but felt it was somewhat overpriced. The wine list was a good one but there was almost nothing on it at a sensible price! We didn't see much of the vgillage as it was a foggy November day but the beach looks fantastic!
