This place was a find. My wife and daughters graciously agreed to trek out to Normandy as part of our trip to Paris, even though they had no interest in seeing the WWII locales at all. Fortunately, although they were about as impressed with the sites as expected, my wife proclaimed that the chateau made it all worthwhile. There are two buildings - the main chateau and a separate annex that houses the family suites. I booked one of those through booking.com, only to have the property email me the next day that they had none of those rooms available. To their credit, they gave us adjoining rooms in the main chateau for the same price, which was probably better anyway. Those rooms are kind of old, nothing spectacular, but the old windows open up and we had the best view of a very serene stream in the back of the place. The only downside to the rooms is the shower, or lack thereof. They have a tub with the shower attachment - so no standup shower stall.
The location is amazing. Bayeaux is a quaint little town, but the real benefit is being closer to Omaha Beach, Pont du Hoc and the other sites. I would strongly recommend staying in Bayeaux over staying in Caen, which is another 15-20 miles away. The chateau is located just off one of the main roads, so easy access to everything, and as some have said, within walking distance of the main part of Bayeaux (although not a short walk, per se).
The grounds are the best part of the place. Our girls (10 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed every part (and they tried it all) - played tennis, ping pong, rode in the row boat... and the other kids there with other families were equally active. The thing was, though, that the grounds are like a slice of heaven - quiet, lush, lots of flowers, and a wonderful stream/pond with swans (who had just had cygnets 2 days prior), ducks, fish, etc. I have some wonderful photos that I may upload when I return home.
The ONLY negative that I have is the breakfast. European-style (some meats,cheeses, an egg boiler, bread, etc) which would be fine if included in the price, but they charge 14 euros each for it. It's not worth that. Maybe half of that. Anyway, not a big deal, and definitely would not affect my glowing recommendation.
If possible, stay in the main chateau.
