For us this is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Making a booking was easy and no deposit was needed. We arrived and there was no double booking and we were given the room we were promised - the Cocteau Room. Our welcome was warm and when we were shown to our room, it was even better than in the pictures on their website.
Firstly, what the pictures don’t show you is the cleanliness and attention to detail in the room. This historic old building used to be a shop, but it was gutted and refurbished to exacting standards. Little things like the ‘cutlery’ handles in the kitchen and the owners use of salvaged authentic materials where possible, all add to the charm and elegance of the room.
The creature comforts are all there from a great bed, to a ‘rain fall’ shower and a fully fitted kitchen with a fridge and utensils.
Out of our room, you could see the towers of Bayeux Cathedral. The ‘secret’ tower at the top of the sprial stairs provides an even better view.
To top it all, the owners were so helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a delight of not only the usual fresh croissants and bread, but also a home made surprise treat in the morning.
The Cocteau Room can sleep three comfortably, though one person has to sleep on a folding bed - which was pretty comfortable. Lastly the location of this B&B means you can walk to local restaurants at night and there was free parking nearby in the Place de Charles de Gaulle.
If we ever go back to Bayeux, then this will be our top choice!!!
