“Loved Bayeux France!!!!”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

First off, the town of Bayeux is so charming that I wished I had booked a longer stay there, as it was we stayed 2 nights at La Tour Louise. As other reviewers have noted the B&B is very charming, from the rooms you stay in to the host of the establishment. The location is literally a short walk away from the train station and very easy to find. Your views from your bathrooms show the lovely and majestic Cathedral in town. We had the upper level to ourselves and the rooms were immaculate. Will was very helpful, charming host and spot on with dinner recommendations at La Gare Manger, I think that is how you spell it. We also took a D Day tour and that was truly the highlight of our stay there. Great little shops in town and we found the people in the area lovely.

La Tour Louise is a charming 200 year old guesthouse owned and run by the third generation of the same family. Rooms are spotless and very well appointed. Everything looks new. Almost no detail has been missed. The location is within walking distance of everything in town. Our room had a spectacular view of the cathedral. Wil B., the current owner, is a warm and gracious host and an excellent source for restaurant recommendations, Normandy beach guides, and any questions about the local area. Wil serves a generous breakfast which can include eggs and bacon if desired. We would highly recommend staying at La Tour Louise.

Room Tip: View of Cathedral

My husband, in-laws and I spent 3 nights at La Tour Louise Guesthouse and of 5 hotels on our France trip this was my absolute favorite! Will was such a gracious host and he even made us eggs/bacon each morning to accompany the regular French-style breakfast. The rooms were so charming, comfortable and clean and we had a view from our bathroom of the impressive Bayeux Cathedral. I would highly, highly recommend this B&B to anyone touring Normandy!

Room Tip: We had top floor rooms and the Cathedral views were gorgeous!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this historic, charming B&B. Wil was an excellent host, giving lots of recommendations on places to eat, which wasn't easy on Sun and Mon eve as Bayeux virtually shuts down. Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and we had an amazing view of the Notre Dame from the bathroom window. Breakfast was very good, fresh bread cheeses and jams and delicious pastries!! Plus if you had room, scrambled eggs and bacon!! its in an excellent location, great for Bayeux tapestry and DD tours, and if arriving by train it's just a 10 min walk. We always choose B&B's now because of the personal touch and Wil and his B&B is no exception, highly recommend.

We had a wonderful two nightstay with Wil at this lovely guesthouse. Right from the minute we arrived, Wil was helpful and really went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed. He insisted on carrying our heavy suitcases up the stairs which was very nice. Our room was very clean and comfortable and had an amazing view of the Bayeux cathedral from the bathroom window. The location is fantastic, with only a short stroll to get to the town centre where you can find the cathedral, the Bayeux Tapestry, and a huge variety of cafes, restaurants and shops.

Wil gave us some great restaurant recommendations as well as a map with directions (and some local tips) on how to get to all of the nearby D-Day sites. His breakfast was delicious each morning, including eggs and bacon, pastries, bread, cheeses, spreads, fresh fruit and more. He joined us each morning for a chat which was great as we got a real insight into the local culture and also because he is just such a nice guy.

Overall, it is one of the best B&B stays we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Five stars is not enough!

Room Tip: Ask for a cathedral view!

All I can do is echo the praise for Wil and the terrific guest house that he manages in Bayeux. We were able to walk quite easily from the train station which made it very convenient. Wil greeted us warmly and showed us our room which was quite roomy, immaculate, and featuring a world class cathedral view from the bathroom window. The breakfasts, served in a homey breakfast area next to the private garden, were more than French adequate, and we enjoyed our morning conversations with other guests very much. The location was perfect, close enough for easy access to the tapestry and meeting our D-Day beaches tour, but remote enough to be quiet. Our meals and Riene Mathilde and the great little pizza place were very tasty. Wil was kind enough to call a taxi driver in Sarlat so that he could meet our late train three days hence. We loved our stay.

My wife and I stayed with Wil at La Tour Louise for two nights in mid March. We found Wil to be an extremely charming and efficient host who seemed anxious to provide a personal touch for all of his guests.
His accomodation is very clean and well maintained in addition to its very central location in Bayeux.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to recommend La Tour Louise to anyone looking for a pleasant B&B experience.
