The hotel is very well situated and quiet. There was a charming man named Eric who came out of the dining room to greet us, and checked us in and insisted upon carrying our bags to our room. He then got us a table in the restaurant, which was fully booked, and as we had dinner, learned that he also... More

Quick summary: a very spacious room almost devoid of furniture. Internet issues. No elevator. Room keys at desk often left unattended. The hotel has potential, but probably needs new management. Central location to many Bayeux attractions and restaurants, and close to Normandy beaches. We stayed 4 nights in Room 20, a the top of the stairs. Two twin beds pushed... More

It isn't the worst place and, in fact, looked like it was the class act in Bayeux. The staff are pleasant and welcoming, but the prices are way too high. Bayeux is a charming place and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel restaurant was fine, but, once again, way too expensive. Apart from the stiff tariffs, the place is shabby... More

This was our 2nd time to Bayeux and our first hotel stay.We asked our travel agent for charming and cozy and we got that beyond our expectations. The restaurant was beautiful,the hotel sitting rooms great for meeting and making new global acquaintances. Viva la Difference! Paula@paulamarks.com

We recently stayed several nights at this lovely historical hotel in Bayeux...cozy and perfect for our needs. The staff was the most welcoming of any during my different hotel stays in France. They are gracious, polite, and truly value their clientele. The rooms are quiet and clean, and ours overlooked the lovely courtyard entrance. It felt like a home away... More

This hotel is one that would be easy to pass by. I chose it from an internet site and based on what reviews I had read, sounded good. Eisenhower stayed there! Sounds like a winner to me. My significant other had just left Mont Saint Michel (after staying at the Abbye) so our standards and expectations were quite low. When... More

Lovely old building with tons of WW II memorabilia. Room was in a building attached to the hotel. Bit too modern to fit in with old style hotel. Pricey for what it was. No toilet paper in the room, Q Tips from previous guest left on the window ledge! Fan didn't work in the room and they never replaced it,... More

The staff was super helpful and friendly. The room was clean and very adequate with decent WiFi. When we checked in they asked if we wanted to eat dinner in the restaurant. We made a reservation and are so glad we did. The food was some of the best tasting and beautifully presented we had in France. The food was... More

Had a very large superior deluxe room, nicely decorated, plenty of space, not in the main part of the hotel. Bathroom was extra large, newer tile and fixtures, plenty of mirrors with nice amenities. Great location in town and room was quiet even though street has lots of traffic. The restaurant dinner was great. The Salt Marsh Lamb, speciality of... More
