Hotel Churchill
Ranked #6 of 22 Hotels in Bayeux
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were told by multiple people that the Churchill Hotel was the best hotel in Bayeux. This may be true, but as far as hotels go in general I wasn't incredibly impressed. 

When we arrived, the lobby was small but very inviting. The gentleman behind the desk was even more inviting. Our room was rm 205, so we hauled our luggage up two flights of slanted stairs. I also tripped in the sloping hallway every time came and went from the room. The place definitely has history and character. The room itself was again small, but nice. The bathroom was also a decent size. We were unable to get WiFi in our room unless we stood by the window. I think this might have just been because we were on the top floor. The signal in the lobby was very strong and not a problem at all.

To summarize, the hotel is not bad and nicer than average. I would probably try a Bed & Breakfast instead if I were to go back to the area. If you have a car and don't need to be so close to the train station, I would definitely try a more budget friendly B&B option.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the top (2nd) floor for a better chance of getting WiFi in your room.

It has been under new owners since March 2013, and they are very friendly and helpful. We liked this little cosy and charming hotel. It is very well located next to everything, and we enjoyed having the local market right at our door. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends who want to stay in Normandy. Little bonus : free Wifi access in our bedroom.

Room Tip: Perfect for a romantic 3/4 days stay in Normandy.

I have just returned from a three night stay with two friends at Hotel Churchill , and from arrival to departure to hotel staff could not have been more welcoming and helpfull .

We stayed in room 14 which was perfect for us with one double bed adjacent to the spotless wet room then two single beds upstairs in the annexe . The room/hotel had FREE Wi-Fi and a FREE safe in the room aswell as wall mounted flat screen tv (downstairs) were there was also a wardrobe and dresser. Rooms were cleaned and towels changed daily . Our room opened onto the shared outdoor courtyard which was the perfect place for a cold beer !! There is great bar in the conservatory which is connected to the main reception and is a good place to plan your day with a coffee or to share notes in the evening with a beer or two.

Bayeux has plenty of good places to see,eat and drink. On Wednesday the street o/s the hotel is closed off for the farmers market which is perfect for buying local goodies ... The purpose off our stay was to explore the sites of the D-Day landings and this proved the perfect location to explore all the sites .

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Churchill on 3 occasions from 2007 through 2013, the most recent being this past April, 2013. Once more, we were greeted warmly and enthusiastically, and this time, by the new owner who is eager to make sure each detail of one's stay is attended to immediately. The physical aspect of the hotel exudes charm and pride of the history of the area and of the hotel. The many photographs of the World War II Normandy Invasion on the wall and the memorabilia in the display cabinets is a visit to a museum itself. Our room was impeccable and the colors and fabrics lovely, and the bathroom spotless. Daniel is a joy, full of knowledge of Normandy and Bayeux and he guided us to what became the best meal of our trip. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer this trip, and we are looking forward to our next visit.

As soon as we entered he Churchill, Daniel greeted us warmly. The hotel was full so the first night we had small rooms, but the 2nd day the staff moved all of our luggage to larger rooms. My favorite part of The Churchill was breakfast! Our hostess was amazingly friendly and efficient. Breakfast was a marvelous French feast of the highest quality and everyone was attentive. Later at night as we sat comfortably in one of the downstairs bar rooms, we were kept supplied with drinks and snacks while we chatted and studied all of the thrilling WWII memorabilia on the walls and in the bookcases. Within walking distance of The Tapestry and The Cathedral as well as many shops and little restaurants. All in all -- nothing short of an incredible adventure that left us wanting more. The driver (Maurice) of our shuttle to Mont St. Michel was historically knowledgeable and told wonderful local stories. Could not have asked for more.

Stayed at the Churchill just one night. It is old but in pretty good shape albeit a little dated. Rooms are smallish but have everything you need. The location is excellent to experience what Bayeux has to offer. The front desk staff was friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: No lift from what I could see.

Just returned from a visit to Normandy where we used Hotel Churchill as our base for four days.
From the beginning of our visit til our departure we were treated with gracious hospitality, professionalism, and kindness. This is a small hotel with a cozy feeling in the heart of Bayeux.The location is prefect for day trips exploring the area and great for walking to nearby restuarants in the evening.

Many thanks to everyone at Hotel Churchill. We had a wonderful visit and will come again.
