“A great stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights, using Bayeux as our base to explore the D-Day Beaches and Le Mont St. Michel. The staff were welcoming,friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, overlooking the patio with the Cathedral in the background. Breakfast was very good, a good selection of fruit, cereal, meats and cheeses, and the hot chocolate was excellent. The Bayeux Tapestry was just around the corner, and the Cathedral only a block away. Lots of restaurants to choose from, and we enjoyed walking around the city. We also took the hotel shuttle to Le Mont St. Michel, which saved us from having to rent a car. We would stay here again.

The room was small and on ground floor so we had a bit of noise ( I would spend a bit more and upgrade as we had the least expensive room). The staff is fabulous and after a long day you can sit on the patio and have wine( with the Nicest server) -- breakfast is extra but worth the price if you have a morning tour -- you can also just order coffee and it is served on a tray in a silver pot. We used the shuttle to Mt st Michel and is fantastic -- our driver francoise gave us a history lesson on the way -- only 8 people in the van. I would highly recommend and the tapestry is right across the street and restaurants are in walking distance as is the Cathedral--

Traveling with our 26 year old son to Normandy battle sites, this was the perfect "home base" hotel in the lovely town of Bayeux. We shared a 2 BR suite, plenty of room for all of us, and super comfortable. The hotel has recently changed to new owners and they were on site from before dawn to midnight, making sure everything was perfect for their guests. The WWII focused decor added to the experience. Bayeux, with its many wonderful winding streets and charming canal, is right outside your door.

There is not not much to add to the many positive reviews. This is a small, older, and charming hotel in the heart of Bayeux. We had to park our car down the street. We had a spacious room which was big enough and comfortable enough for three adult guests in our party. Or room was clean and comfortable. We awoke on a sunny Sunday morning to the glorious sound of cathedral bells ringing nearby, and had a tasty continental breakfast in a charming glass-enclosed breakfast room. Bayeux is a good place to stay to tour the Normandy D-Day beaches. Warning: there is no elevator, so be prepared to lug your bags upstairs.

We spent 5 nights in the Hotel Churchill and found it to be one of the best places we have ever stayed. The location is central, near the Cathedral and within a short walk from the British Cemetery and War Museum. It backs onto the main street. The gift shop has numerous items that represent the area, hand made crafts and is reasonably priced. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful, making our stay comfortable and pleasant. The room, while small (not unusual for a European boutique hotel) was updated and comfortable with a view overlooking Place de Quebec and the cathedral. Overall, it was the staff that made the difference. We also took their tour of Mont St. Michel. Our driver Francois, was great. Lots of information, very helpful and even made a special stop for 2 of the guests which took him a bit out of his way. A terrific experience all around.

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.
