I can normally be quite scathing of Novotel. But we had a good stay here.
I paid about £70.00 per night for a superior room and I booked through the Accor hotels website. The room was fine and the staff where helpful, good English was spoken by all the staff we encountered. I think this is down to the Normandy area having a lot of Brit and US visitors.
The Breakfast was okay and was 15.00 Euros per adult. You could also choose to have an "express" breakfast in the bar area for 8 Euros per adult. I will say no more on the food prices!
The hotel is in a good location for most needs; it is situated on the edge of a large roundabout (traffic circle for you guys across the pond) and will take you about 15/30 minutes to walk in to the town centre depending on your fitness. The town is a pretty place and does get a lot of visitor due to the Bayeux tapestry and the D-Day sites. For those needing a supermarket to fill up the car or get supplies from - Bayeux has large ELeclerc and Carrefour hypermarkets to name a few for your convenience, the ELeclerc is next to the British war cemetery.
This hotel provided what we needed for our stay in the Bayeux/Normandy area. Most of the guests I would say were older Americans on organised tours and us keeping the "British stiff upper lip" going to ensure the place didn't end up like a Wild West saloon bar (only kidding). We only had three days in Normandy so this central location was really a good base for a small family. You can be in Carentan or Caen in 30 min. Omaha, Pont du Hoc are 20 min by car and Utah beach which is beautiful is just a bit further; all the Brit Invasion beaches and D-Day objectives are about 10 to 30 min by car.
