We had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Reine Mathilde. The rooms were cozy and comfortable and the restaurant was great and convenient. It is in a perfect location with beautiful views. The best part was the friendly, very hard-working, accommodating staff. They could not have been nicer or more helpful. It's also very reasonably priced. We enjoyed the lovely... More

This hotel is perfect for travelers looking to take in the World War 2 sights. The beaches are about a 15 minute drive from the hotel so you will need a rental car. Don't think of the rental car as a burden, because it also allows you to explore the nearby French villages. The hotel is right in the center... More

Location was great. Hotel was nice but not "wow". We asked for a room with a bath tub. Think they lost that in translation or just didnt have one. Shower was nice... We would stay there again and recommend it.

Arrived midday - staff welcomed us warmly, stored our suitcases, and provided quick guidance for a great day. Restaurant lunch was very nice, again, great staff help. You can walk everywhere from the hotel. Outside patio is a great place to people watch. Our rooms were in the annex - new, clean spacious. Wish we would have stayed another day!

A lovely room, a perfect location (adjacent to Place du Quebec), a nice cafe, and warm hospitality! What more could you ask? The perfect hotel for viewing the Bayeux Tapestry and joining D-Day beach tours.

We stayed here 2 nights. Had a "Comfort" = Queen bed room in the annex. Room was quite new in all respects and very comfortable. Quiet because it is off the street. Room was clean and well-maintained. Hotel is 2-3 blocks from the front doors of the Tapestry Museum and the Cathedral. 1 block off the main shopping street with... More

My husband and I only stayed one night here, passing through to see Normandy. We decided to stay here because of all the good reviews and it was quite a savings compared to the Churchill, and I'm so glad we did! The staff were great!

We had a great visit in Bayeux at this hotel. We don't normally stay at two star hotels (usually 3 or 4) but this one had wonderful reviews and we thought we would save a few Euros and take a chance. Everything was according to the reviews. Friendly staff, good food and drinks on their sunny porch and the rooms... More

Hotel Reine Mathilde offers a wonderful location, lovely breakfast, considerate staff at a just price. My only recommendation would be to ask for a little more bath soap and shampoo. I felt they were lacking in this category.
