“Hotel Laura, sister hotel to the Churchill”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

In Sept. 2012, we were unable to get a reservation at the Churchill. The owners also owned the Hotel Laura, which is next door to the Churchill and is newer. The a Hotel Laura was amazing! We had a beautiful king room that had windows that opened up to a view of the Cathedral. All luxury amenities, toiletries, towels, robes. The owners and staff want you to have a comfortable and unforgettable stay. Breakfast each morning is made to order. They have a small fitness center, but definitely adequate. They have an evening happy hour. And you can easily get over to the Churchill to see that hotel and look at some of the historical pictures from the war. Great location, walkable to anywhere... Including the British cemetery and WWII museum. We also heard the Churchill is also amazing. And, the Churchill/Hotel Laura have a daily shuttle to Monte St. Michel for a very reasonable cost. The driver gives you all the good ideas on how to cover the place and gives a quick tour on the walk up (a less crowded, special access) and keeps us from waiting in line for tickets to tour. When we come back to Normandy, we will stay here. Kudos to the owners and staff!

We had a wonderful stay in a very modest but comfortable room. Front desk personelle, Eric? was vey friendly and helpful. The stairs were bait difficult to manage with our bags and the our view of mechanical equipment was a bit disappointing in such a beautiful town. We did book last minute however on a busy weekend and were grateful for friendly service and comfortable room in an excellent location.

Room Tip: aks for a view if that's important to you, our window looked out on mechanical equipment.

This was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We were here on a three day visit to Bayeux. The town is a wonderful little gem of old cobblestone streets and quaint shops. The location of the hotel is perfect. You are a very short walk (5 minutes) from the train station, a block from the tapestry or the main street or the cathedral.

The hotel itself is warm and cozy. The rooms have a historic feel but are very clean and modernized inside. The hotel walls are covered with old newspapers, memorabilia, photos, etc. from WWII. It is very much like a little museum you feel comfortable walking through. The breakfast is very nice: there is the usual bread and pastry option but plenty of fresh fruit, eggs, etc. to satisfy a larger appetite.

We were very happy with the staff, too. They were consistently helpful to my husband and I, no matter who was speaking. You see, I speak fluent French, my husband does not. The staff was incredibly friendly no matter which one of us asked a question (where should we grab lunch? what is the best way to get to Mt. St. Michel? what is the nicest place to go for dinner? etc.). Overall we would both highly recommend the hotel to anyone who wants to have a good visit here.

The hotel is handy in every way. There is parking out the back and it's a very short walk to the Tapestry, restaurants and the Cathedral. It is also right next door to a supermarket and the gift shop at the front is really nice. Breakfasts are served beautifully and the owner and his team are so hospitable. The hotel itself is an older building and so the rooms are in some interesting places - be prepared to climb stairs. The bathrooms are modern and clean.
The ONLY area that needs attention is the WiFi. It was good in the reception area (until a bunch of Apple-Mac-toting students all tried simultaneously to push their photos to the cloud!) but it faded out in the rooms. Other than that, perfect!

we stayed for two nights at the Hotel Churchill and learned of the hotel from TA. It was an ideal location for us as we wanted to tour the Normandy beaches and see the Bayeux tapestry. We were disappointed with the room - while it had a great bathroom - modern and spacious - the room overlooked the street so there was street noise plus the light from the Hotel sign. We were near the creaky stairs so we heard people coming and going in the evenings and mornings. We thought it was an expensive place to stay for the lack of comfort. The windows could have been better insulated. Maybe there were quieter rooms on the back side of the hotel.

Room Tip: as for a quite room away from the street

We stayed one night here on our trip to the Normandy D-Day beaches. The hotel staff was excellent, making dinner reservation, arranging transportation, anything we needed. The breakfast was nice. The photos throughout the hotel were outstanding for their descriptions and history.

Room Tip: no elevator, small rooms.

We chose the Churchill Hotel from Trip Advisor reviews. The reviews were right on target. The hotel was a wonderful experience. I thought the prices were reasonable. Staff was very professional and helpful. Location was close to everything in town--the Cathedral and Bayeux Tapestry, and wonderful cafes. We loved the slow pace of the town will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: pick room that faces the cathedral--great view.
