“The most charming experience”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Will was the most hospitable and friendly host we could have! We were so blessed for his assistance in matters of booking tours and restaurant recommendations. This noble house is charming, the finishes are absolutely beautiful and it has a magical old world feel. We slept very well with the peace and quiet in Bayeux. The view from our room of the Cathedral was amazing. Breakfast was lovely, chatting with other guests and enjoying hot cooked food, fresh pastries, fruit, yoghurt etc. it was really excellent value. I loved learning of the history of the house and it was a nice change from chain hotels. We highly recommend this guest house!

Great place in the center of Bayeau. The room was quite large with a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom updated. We were able to walk to everything around town, and free parking was available. The breakfast was wonderful. Fresh croissants, fruit, cheeses, cereals, and even bacon and eggs were available every morning. A great buy for the money. Will, our host was very helpful with any need. Would highly recommend this guest house.

Staying at a guest house is something else, it is so cool to share the place with the owners. Isn that the real deal when traveling? This small house near the centre of the town is a great option. Breakfast was excellent, house is great, parking is convenient and all in all a great value. The host is very friendly and knowledgable. Only down side is check out at 10 am which is sort of a standard in this kind of lodges. Highly recommended.

Outstanding! Our host, Wil,made us feel so welcome. From helping with our luggage to dining recommendations, breakfast offerings and touring advice, we could not have asked for a better host.
We trained from Paris. A short walk and we were in old town Bayeux and checked in. Our room was immaculate and well provisioned, with an impressive view of the Notre Dame Cathedral and the town. From there it is an easy walk to all the attractions, restaurants, shops and the Saturday market. The Normandy beaches are a short ride from town and our tour there was a very moving experience.
We were delighted with our choice of La Tour Louise!

Room Tip: Wil will do his best to accommodate any need. Rooms are very pleasant and cozy.

We stayed two nights and after coming from stays in places twice as expensive, we arrived at one of our all time favorites. The location is perfect in the center of town with a superb view of the cathedrale just out the window. The cathedrale and tapestry are just a few minutes walk, as are the other historic areas of town. The room we had on the third floor was an average size, and the bathroom is good sized. Everything was super clean. The breakfast was wonderful, and really one of the best we had on our trip. You can have the usual croissant or fruit as well as eggs and bacon if you like. The breakfast is a real bargain. Wil is really a wonderful host: there if you need him, not there if you want to be on your own. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We liked the third floor because the view of the cathedrale, especially at night, was so dramatic.

We stayed here in February 2013 for about four days. The guesthouse is ideally situated for visiting the normandy landing beaches and other such sites. The town of Bayeux is lovely and from our room we had a great view of the Cathedral which was all lit up at night. It was an easy stroll into town in which there were a number of lovely little restaurants. The Bayeux tapestry is about a five/ten minute walk.

The host Will was very helpful and informative. Breakfast was always really good and we were offered poached or scrambled eggs each morning. Plenty of teas, fresh bread, pastries and fruit. The room itself was very comfortable and cosy. I would definitely return to the Guesthouse if visiting the area again.

We stayed at La Tour Louise Guesthouse for two nights at the end of September and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The Guesthouse is ideally located, within a short walking distance to many popular tourist sights in Bayeux as well as to several fine restaurants. Our double room was quite spacious, with a very comfortable bed. The house itself has real character. We experienced a true feeling of tranquility while there! Wil was the consummate host, going out of his way to make us feel at home. He was also a source of much local information and helped us plan our routes out of town for day trips. And did we mention the breakfasts? Well beyond the usual fare we had become used to while in France! We would recommend Tour Louise Guesthouse without any hesitation!
