“Loved Bayeux - this makes a moderately priced base”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stayed here in October 2012 while touring WWII sites. I loved Bayeux - it is a town one could visit again. This hotel, while extremely old, was centrally located in the older part of town. Very easy walks to restaurants, shops, the Cathedral and the Tapestry Museum. Our room was on the top floor of a very old section - my brother was very concerned about escaping down the very steep stairwell in the event of a fire. Room and fixtures were old, but it was tidy and the bathroom was clean. There was no shower enclosure. No heat in the room - and it was wet and quite cold. Finally they arranged to put a heater in the room. It wasn't great, but it was reasonable value for the price.

Front desk was good. Especially Marilyn. Room was cold, heat not on. No one offered a heater until asked directly. Towels well past their prime. Bed saggy. Soap situation poor, no shampoo. Shower abominable, tub slippery and hard to get in to. Parking OK. Wake up service unavailable. 12 euro breakfast not worth it. Better experience in third world.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

We stayed here for one night on a road trip in Normandy. Location is great, right in the centre of Bayeux, walking distance to Tapestry, bars, cathedral and restaurants. Parking is 9 euros per night. The main reception is quite nice but the rest of the decor in the hotel is quite outdated. It is clean, however and reasonably maintained. Our room was HUGE but had a bit of a weird layout, and as before the decor was a bit outdated. It was fine for the night though and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bayeux was a really good base for exploring the landing beaches and other WW2 landmarks.

This hotel has a great location and is clean and quiet. Staff are helpful and pleasant
Parking on site is available for €9 per night.
We were able to find several great restaurants within walking distance.
The beds are very uncomfortable and need to be replaced.

I would not stay here again.

The rooms are OK but the restaurant is the pits, same old tired menu indifferently cooked and served. the wine list had only overpriced half bottles, and after arguing we got a jug of, I suppose bag in a box wine. staff are surly, no smiles and little interest in their clients. Avoid this place!

We had a room over in their "annex" which was poorly lit at night and actually kind of scary to get to. It was up a really steep flight of stairs and we had really heavy suitcases as we had been on a cruise. The carpet was decent, but the wallpaper was peeling on 2 of the walls and was newer on 2 walls in a different pattern. We had 2 twin beds with bedspreads that were about 20 years old and one had a small bloodstain on it. The front desk at times tried to be helpful, but not all of them spoke English so that was a little challenging. The wi-fi worked only in the lobby---not the rooms as they promised. We paid around $180 a night including all taxes and breakfast---but I think we would have been better off at the Churchill or another truly 3 star hotel. Bayeux itself, however is beyond wonderful.
