I don't know if I can say enough good things about this hotel. We had a rental car and made a last minute decision to find a room in Bayeux. I had remembered this hotel from Tripadvisor so we decided to see if they had an available room for the night. They had a junior suite at a very reasonable price (off season). It was lovely. We immediately decided to stay a second night and ultimately decided to stay a third night. The hotel is new so everything is still very clean and fresh. Our room was very large with a sitting room that looked out over the canal and the Cathedral - really beautiful view. The bed was incredibly comfortable. We had fluffy robes and slippers, and free beverages (water and coke) from the mini bar. The bathroom was beautiful with a walk in shower and separate tub and marble finishings. We have stayed in many five star hotels and this hotel compares to them. The staff was wonderful. They made wonderful recommendations for dinner and were very kind and helpful overall. The breakfast was lovely. The location was perfect for exploring Normandy and its sites. The D-Day beaches were close by and Mont St. Michel was an easy day trip. Bayeux is absolutely wonderful. A beautiful, historic little city with a beautiful Cathedral and the Bayeux Tapestry as well as a very good D-Day museum. There are also wonderful shops and we had great dining experiences each night. We would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it highly to others.
