“Nice Place, Mind the Manager”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Nice spacious rooms, very clean and very central to the sites. Just a few minutes walk to the train station and car rental at Renault. The breakfast was very basic and for the cost you would be better advised to eat at one of the many nearby restaurants.

The manager, as several has said, doesn't speak a word of English. I don't really expect this when I travel. However, knowing that I did not understand a word of French, she would keep talking endlessly in French. I was able to get the gist of what she was trying to communicate, but seriously, once you know we don't understand- stop already. One such rant was clearly very pleasant and gracious, but another she was clearly irate and we were getting nowhere with this arrangement.

We stayed here one night in the superior room. Paid 100 euro and 6 for the Breakfast. Room was very large and so was the bathroom. Very clean. Cosy.
Nice view o. The cathedral.
Nice lady of the house. We do speak French.
Breakfast was cheap but too simple.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This bed and breakfast is located in Bayeux, a short walking distance from the cathedral and the Bayeux tapestry. Free parking is also very close so we didn't have any problems with our car. The rooms are good sized but some of the decor is out of place. It's a mix of traditional and modern. Our bathroom was large and recently redecorated in retro colors - yellow, black and blue. Our room had a balcony where we had a great view of the church. Service was good but they don't want you to check in before 2:00 pm. If you try before that time, you may not be let in. We had breakfast which was priced right and consisted of croissants, bread, cereal, yogurt, juices and coffee. The owner is friendly and has the cutest dog!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony that overlooks the cathedral.

The guesthouse is a really interesting building, we had the basement room which was very large and included our own lounge and also a small kitchenette. it was spotlessly clean, and very quiet. Madame does not speak English, but we have reasonable "Franglaise" and we do not expect the rest of the world to speak our language, when travelling. Madame was very friendly and polite, taking great pride in the presentation of the property. We ended up staying two nights as the area had so much to see and the stay was so enjoyable. We parked our car in the public carpark behind the property, taking the usual precaution of leaving the hatchcover, glovebox etc open to show there was nothing in the car, and it was unharmed and safe.

We stayed at this B& B for 1 night and found the owner spoke very quick French continually, despite the fact we cannot speak any french. She made no effort to communicate with us. She was not very welcoming. The toilet systern would not fill up in room 5. The decor was a bit tired. On a positive note the bathrooms were big and the beds were comfortable and it was a beautiful house, situated close to everything in Bayeux. It was a lovely town and it was nice to be in the middle of this lovely town.

What a beautiful French house and gardens ! Easy to find, safe free parking just opposite and a better location you will not find. Our room, spacious and grand, had a balcony and overlooked the Cathedral. Lovely, friendly family run guesthouse, good breakfast. Much better than most hotels we stayed in. We will definitely return.

I have never stayed at a guest house like this. What an experience!, I felt like I was in the home of the Queen! The interior is incredibly well furnished, and the innkeeper was very friendly. Breakfast was excellent, and I have yet to find yogurt here in the States similar to the kind I had here. The location is great here as well, it is not more than a 20 to 25 minute drive to the D-Day beaches. The city of Bayeux itself is very nice as well. I would definitely stay here again.
