“Nice Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Le Castel Nobel Guesthouse in early October. We did not have a GPS with us and could not find the B&B. We did find a tourist information center that gave us directions. We found the guesthouse, but it was too early to check in, so we drove around the town. It was raining when we got back to check in. There was a sign on the door to go to another location to check in. I would have throught that if their check in time was 2:30, someone should be there. In the pouring rain we went to the other location to find someone, then came back to the guesthouse. We checked in and told the young man, that when we were at the visitors center, they would not make reservations for us to tour Normandy, but said that the hotel operators would need to do it for us. He seem somewhat iritated with that. Not sure if it was with us, or with the center. He did get a tour for us.

Our room was on the third floor. Spacious size compared to the small one in Paris. The bath was good size and clean also. Very good location. However it wasn't very warm and welcoming. Not allowed to use the front door, no luggage inside, must use the side door. When I travel outside the US I try to learn a few phrases and helpful words in the language of the country I visit. Madame went on and on in French and didn't seem the least interested in saying anything in English....not even Thank you when we checked out.

We had a very nice room with comfortable seating and a tiny turret with windows facing the cathedral. The turret had a chair and a reading lamp in it. Our bathroom had been redone and was very spacious with a lovely stand up shower and a cozy towel warmer. As the weather was rather cool when we were in Bayeux, we made use of it. The one main problem with the room was that there were no drawers in which to put things. I like to be able to take things out of the suitcase when we travel.
The breakfast was a "Continental Breakfast," as advertised but was very adequate, with yogurt and cereal in addition to the bread.
The whole property was extremely clean and well cared for. Madam did not speak English, but had an adorable dog who didn't mind it.
The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of the cathedral and the tapestry.

Nice spacious rooms, very clean and very central to the sites. Just a few minutes walk to the train station and car rental at Renault. The breakfast was very basic and for the cost you would be better advised to eat at one of the many nearby restaurants.

The manager, as several has said, doesn't speak a word of English. I don't really expect this when I travel. However, knowing that I did not understand a word of French, she would keep talking endlessly in French. I was able to get the gist of what she was trying to communicate, but seriously, once you know we don't understand- stop already. One such rant was clearly very pleasant and gracious, but another she was clearly irate and we were getting nowhere with this arrangement.

We stayed here one night in the superior room. Paid 100 euro and 6 for the Breakfast. Room was very large and so was the bathroom. Very clean. Cosy.
Nice view o. The cathedral.
Nice lady of the house. We do speak French.
Breakfast was cheap but too simple.

This bed and breakfast is located in Bayeux, a short walking distance from the cathedral and the Bayeux tapestry. Free parking is also very close so we didn't have any problems with our car. The rooms are good sized but some of the decor is out of place. It's a mix of traditional and modern. Our bathroom was large and recently redecorated in retro colors - yellow, black and blue. Our room had a balcony where we had a great view of the church. Service was good but they don't want you to check in before 2:00 pm. If you try before that time, you may not be let in. We had breakfast which was priced right and consisted of croissants, bread, cereal, yogurt, juices and coffee. The owner is friendly and has the cutest dog!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony that overlooks the cathedral.

The guesthouse is a really interesting building, we had the basement room which was very large and included our own lounge and also a small kitchenette. it was spotlessly clean, and very quiet. Madame does not speak English, but we have reasonable "Franglaise" and we do not expect the rest of the world to speak our language, when travelling. Madame was very friendly and polite, taking great pride in the presentation of the property. We ended up staying two nights as the area had so much to see and the stay was so enjoyable. We parked our car in the public carpark behind the property, taking the usual precaution of leaving the hatchcover, glovebox etc open to show there was nothing in the car, and it was unharmed and safe.
