The Hotel Far Exceeded Our Expectations!,...The Owners and Staff were outstanding in the service they provided,...Rima (Owner), Morgana, and Jessica were magnificient in providing the personal touch,...The hotel is very deserving of a four star rating,...They helped create a wonderful memory as part of our visit to Normandy,...We will definitely choose this hotel when we return,...

Our groups tour of Normandy was very interesting and exciting. Relaxing at the end of the day was no problem at the Villa Lara Hotel. Exteremely pleasent and very close to everything in the town. This is our third trip to Bayeux and I will always recommend this hotel in the future.

We spent 3 nights at Villa Lara so that we could see the D Day sites & Mont St. Michel. This is one of the nicest hotels we have experienced & we travel a great deal. It was quiet, comfortable & spacious. Breakfast was very nice & the location perfect. The staff was helpful & the room was very clean. The hotel arranged our shuttle to Mont St. Michel & our D Day tour picked us up right by the hotel. The main tourist streets of Bayeux & the museum were a block away. The view from our room was gorgeous. We will recommend this hotel.

Such a great experience! This hotel is beautiful in every way. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bathrooms are big and beautiful. The staff is wonderful and so accommodating. If we ever return to Bayeux, Villa Lara would be my choice for a hotel. We enjoyed our stay so much.

Very unique in that it is a modern new hotel in the heart of the old town of Bayeux. Service best in any hotel I've spent time in. Brand new hotel with all the benefits that go with it. Like a brand new and local Westin in a great town.

Villa Lara was incredible. It's brand new and the staff was extremely accomodating. Everything in town is walking distance (the D-Day tours pickup point is right outside the hotel). They had breakfast available in the mornings and a cocktail hour in the evenings (both at an additional cost). The train station was walking distance to the hotel (about 10 minutes). It was a little pricey but worth it.

Villa Lara was a very modern, clean, well appointed hotel. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. Loved it! Breakfast was good, but at the price for the hotel, we expected it would be included. No so, 18 euros per person so eat up.
We talked with a few other Americans who wished they had opted to stay at Villa Lara instead of their chosen hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Villa Lara is a small privately owned luxury boutique hotel with a chic but casual atmosphere in the historic center of Bayeux, along the Aure River in a very quiet square facing the 11th century majestic cathedral and just next door to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Our 28 rooms are appointed in an elegant French style with 8 different color schemes. All the furniture is made by Moissonnier, a well-known French company founded in 1885. Its cabinetmaking skills have been passed down generations, bringing the past to life with light touches, suggesting without imposing, breathing new life into traditions to make the present feel magical again, and creating jewelry for the hotel while cultivating an offbeat style-such is the spirit of Moissonnier today. All the rooms are accessible by lift and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, large flat-screen TV and safe. The marbled bathrooms have a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in most of the rooms. The rooms range from 30 to 50 square meters with a view on the Bayeux Cathedral. Beds are minimum 1.80 x 2 meters and in most of the rooms can be up to 2 x 2 meters. Wireless high speed internet access is free throughout the hotel, which features a cozy bar/lounge area with a fireplace and a library, a marbled lobby, and a breakfast room set in a traditional French style where the breakfast is prepared and served in front of the guest. Our complimentary fitness center is available 24/7 and equipment includes a treadmill, bicycle, and strength training machines. A private carpark is available with 15 spots and a drop-off space for buses. Although we meet the official government criteria of a 5-star property, we do not have a restaurant, a spa, and a formal bellman at the front door. We do not want to mislead our future guests who attribute these specific amenities to their image of a 5-star property, although we do of course provide porterage and turn down. And, as always, our commitment to 5-star service is at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. ... more   less
