“Wonderful staff, lovely room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Stayed one night here in July 2012. It was a happy accident! We'd spent too much time on the coast all day, fascinated by all of the WWII locations, and did not make it back to the train station in Bayeux on time to get to our lovely hotel in Saint-Malo. So we were frustrated, exhausted, and forced to find somewhere in town for the night.

Coming across Hotel Reine Mathilde was a miracle! The price was very reasonable, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was modern & clean, and we had a lovely river view! We woke up refreshed and in much better moods than the night before. And the staff: exceptional. Truly friendly, wonderful people. Also, delicious food at the restaurant there! Relaxed atmosphere.

I will recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone looking to stay in Normandy. If we had had more time, we would've taken full advantage of the hotel's central location to do some shopping as well!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

We stayed here one night after a long drive from Amiens. The room was in the annex to the hotel and was quite large and luxuriously appointed. It was clean, warm and well appointed. Compared to a London hotel we had stayed at few days earlier it was twice the size and as luxurious at half the price. We were treated well and ate at the restaurant which provided good value meals. The only issue is that we had to park some half kilometre away as parking was very tight. The only issue was that the bed coverings were duvet which were too warm for the warmth of the room for us from the southern hemisphere.

Room Tip: The annex had very nice rooms.

Myself and my partner stayed here for one night. The location is perfect and in the centre of Bayeux overlooking the cathedral. The room was of average size, very clean and comfy. The staff were lovely and friendly.

We stayed here 3 days in December 2012, we found the staff friendly and helpful. We had a few meals in the cafe and were very happy. It is within 5 minute walk to the Bayeux Tapestry.

The only caution I have is if you have a car the parking is tight as it usually is in Europe. The free lot is about a 10 min walk from the Hotel and fills up before 9 am as the locals all use it.

Room Tip: Had a room in the back building next to the small river, it was quiet at least in December

We stayed here just before Christmas for 3 nights. It was very nice! The hotel staff were very professional and went out of their way to accommodate and help us. All spoke English, and tried hard to help us with our French! The room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very generous by most European standards, with a good, large shower. The restaurant in the hotel is open all day, and the food was wonderful! The off season rates were outstanding! The hotel is centrally located in the old town, just across from the cathedral. Overall, it was a very nice stay, and we have plans to return. Bayeux is a gem!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the separate cottage in the back of the main hotel. I would recommend it.

We stayed for 2 nights in the annex and can only praise the staff and hotel, it was clean and very comfortable. I would also recommend the restaurant which served first class meals. The hotel is in the heart of the town and only a short walk to the tapestry and a massive free car park. The only fault that we could find was the lack of tea making facilities in the room but then we did not mention it to the staff when perhaps we should have done. we will be staying there again.

Room Tip: Mention when booking if you find stairs difficult as there is no lift

I would like to recommend this hotel as a excellent place to headquarter to tour and explore the Normandy area. Normandy is like one vast open air museum, with a wealth of historic sites and museums where visitors can find out more about D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.
This hotel is a little gem. It's location is wonderful in the heart of Bayeux, with available parking nearby, shopping, and several restaurants within walking distance.
We had two rooms one in the front of the hotel and one in the back. Dispite being located directly about the street noise was not and issue. The rooms are updated, clean and comforable with a fair price making this hotel an excellent value and choice for staying in the area.
They serve a basic breakfast for an additional charge which is ok. I would recommend the hotel restaurant for an evening meal. Lots of choices and not too expensive. We were able to have a nice meal with wine for three persons for 40-50E.
The staff was polite and very helpful. I had a little car problem when I was there and they did everything they could to help. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay in the Normandy area. It's very close to the American beaches, Utah and Omaha, the American Cemetery and the Ranger Monument at Pointe Du Hoc.
If you have a car you can easily visit all of these points of interests in addition to numerous museums in the area. You don't need a guide or guided tour to explore the history of the area.
I do recommend that you allow two or three days to explore the area. I think alot of people come to the area without understanding the scope of the battlefield. If you go I would definately consider staying at the Hotel Reine Mathilde and using it as a base to explore the area.
