Our first impressions of the Churchill were a little less than we expected. We chose the Churchill for it's location and excellent reviews. We arrived by car from Paris (an easy drive). We were travelling with another couple. Our room (100) was great if a little tired and more "european" than our rooms in the big cities. Room 100 overlooks the courtyard/parking lot which is nicer than it sounds. Our room was large with a queen bed, day bed, desk, coffee table, good size closet. Plenty of floor space. Our friends room was small and a bit smelly. Their room only had twin beds which was upsetting since we had booked 6 months in advance and it was quite clear that we were couples. Our friends were told that Americans prefer twin beds anyway. We laughed. Oh, well. The hotel is very charming with pictures of WWII all over. The staff was very nice and managed to get me on the internet with my laptop which other hotels couldn't do.
It is right in a very old village. The hotel recommended two restaurants: The Rapiere and The Frangole. Both were fabulous and we would def. go back to either. The Rapiere was a bit higher end. The Frangole a little more casual but the service and food were beyond compare at both.
We booked a WWII tour with BattleBus and we met the bus in the parking lot. Couldn't have been easier. Our tour guide was Stuart. Unbelievable. Just great. The famous Tapestry was around the corner and shouldn't be missed. It only takes a few minutes to view the Tapestry with an audio guide. We drove to Mont. St. Michel. Too crowded but worth it.
I would stay at the Churchill again.
