Reviewed May 26, 2013

Stayed here with friends as a base for touring the area and the WW2 sites. The hotel is very comfortable, with excellent staff. There is plenty of free parking, the breakfast is excellent, and the location is ideal for strolling into Bayeux. It is not cheap though, and there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. .

Traveling with another couple, we had to change hotels in the Bayeux area at the last minute when one of us had a significant allergic reaction at another hotel. We found the Hotel d'Argouges in Bayeux and everything worked out great. Despite being right downtown, the hotel is set back in its own little courtyard so you don't feel the hustle and bustle of the town when you are on the property. Our room was clean, well appointed and sufficiently roomy. The bathroom was terrific-spacious, modern, great shower. The staff was extremely helpful. They arranged a dinner reservation at Le Rapier, which has the reputation as one of the best restaurants in town, and deservedly so. We had a wonderful dinner there. Definitely, it was our best meal in France. Otherwise, the staff at the hotel were cheerful and helpful, with suggestions for us on things to see and do. Breakfast was excellent. Can't beat the baked goods and incredible yogurt. The location was very good; we could walk almost anywhere and did. It was very convenient. If we couldn't walk, like for our D-Day tour, the hotel was easy to get in and out of, with plentiful parking. Especially for a last minute change the Hotel d'Argouges was great.

Very nice hotel, lovely surroundings, pretty public rooms. We had a fine breakfast there every morning. The staff is very helpful, everyone speaks English. The hotel is in the middle of Bayeux, in walking distance to almost every thing. They have a policy that you can't bring your own food or beverages to sit in the yard. That's too bad, but we did have a glass of wine back there anyway. We were there in mid April, and the weather was very nice for that time of year. Just the same, it must be really lovely in Summer.

Room Tip: Our room had two double beds (It was my daughter and I) in the main building, in the front. I liked...

We spent a night at Hotel d'Argouges as part of our visit to the D-Day sites in Normandy. It is like going back in time. The service was excellent and very friendly to Americans with fluent English and loads of help and suggestions. Rooms were spacious and the bathroom was clean and neat. WiFi is included but offers only one connection per room. Breakfast was wonderfully French with soft boiled eggs, yogurt, toast, juice,coffee, etc.

Bayeux is a wonderful community. People were friendly and food was excellent. Le Pommeier, while a little pricey was simply an outstanding restaurant, which I highly recommend.

The Hotel d'Argouges is well located off a lovely plaza that was hosting the weekly market when we arrived. The main building is charming, with a lovely garden. Breakfast is served in a high-ceilinged dining room with windows overlooking the garden. Our room was in an annex building which does not have the same charm. The room was pleasant, although small and basic.

After driving around the D-day beaches, we were lucky to find a vacancy at this inn. And it turned out so well. A former Duke's townhouse, parking was secure and the room was comfortable and clean. We were in the other building and it was so pretty, I took a photo. The breakfast next morning was good. Nearby restaurant had a delicious evening meal.

Room Tip: We were lucky,but you should call and reserve. There are lots of tourists and it is more crowded in...

The main road frontage of this hotel is deceptive - just a narrow entrance & driveway - then it opens out to be a beautiful old house. We had a very comfortable and quiet room, yet the hotel is in the main street of Bayeux. Easy & safe parking for the Barchetta.

The staff were friendly & always very helpful. Super breakfast.
