This hotel is ideally located for a visit to Bayeux and the D-Day landing beaches. On the north edge of town, yet close enough to walk in for your morning croissant, you'll be at the beaches in less than 30 minutes.
The rooms are larger than standard for European hotels and have tea kettles, hair dryers and a small fridge. The bathrooms are modern and efficient. There was no electric plug in our bathroom but my wife carries an extension cord for her curling iron since the majority of hotels seem to not have plugs near a mirror.
The wifi was sufficient for surfing the web and emailing but not for VOIP calls. For a small fee you can upgrade from the free service for faster connections. The TV has BBC for your english-speaking enjoyment. The free parking is a plus.
The restaurant is OK but there are several restaurants nearby (10-15 minute walk) that are much better. It was raining when we were here this trip so we chose to eat in. When in doubt, order an omelet and frites (french fries). The bar in the lobby offers espresso in the morning and breakfast is available in the restaurant.
We've stayed here before and will stay here next time. It's a consistently good value in a good location. We've never had a noise problem with this hotel despite it's proximity to a roundabout and a football stadium.
