The location and price convinced me to book the hotel on-line months before arriving in October 2012 with my Dad and brother. I can only base this review on 3 people sharing a room. I was aware the rooms were small, and the price obviously reflects this, but I genuinely didn't expect it to be that small!
We all laughed when we first entered the room until the seriousness of the situation hit us as we had booked 4 nights! The room is FAR too small for three people. The only way 3 beds can fit in the room is to put one over the other two and the bathroom is extremely cramped. Definitely not for the claustrophobic. We ended up booking the adjoining room as well so my 79 year old Dad could have a bit more space, but this ended up more than doubling the price originally paid.
The immediate area is just outside the centre of Bayeux which is a short stroll away and, as we had the car, this was perfect for reaching and leaving the hotel to different areas of Normandy with ease. The hotel car park was of ample size.
It was pot luck whether the bed was made. On returning after a day out my brother's bed was made, only the top cover of my Dad's bed was pulled over and mine was completely ignored. Also a Bounty bar I bought from the vending machine miraculously disappeared!
We didn't try the breakfast and the staff were only available at certain times of the day. If booking, please remember you have to check in before 13:00 or after 17:00 as the reception is not staffed between those times.
Overall, I would only recommend this hotel for a one night stopover only. Any more than that look elsewhere. The room is just about ok for 2 people but 3 is pushing it.
