We really enjoyed our 4 nights at the quaint Reine Mathilde. The location of the hotel is excellent for walking anywhere in the town, and Bayeux is a very good location for touring WWII sites. Having a free parking lot just down the street was appreciated, as parking in Bayeux is difficult. The hotel has a full restaurant, offering a nice breakfast buffet for additional cost, and very good dinners. ..delicious chocolate crepe for dessert! The nice patio was a popular gathering place for drinks or dinner. Our room #4 was quite small with little storage space (not ideal if you are traveling with 2 large suitcases as we did; (only place to put them was standing on end in the closet) and almost no space to move around the room. It was not a room where we would want to spend time during the day (2 small straight back chairs) but that was never an issue as we were sightseeing non-stop. The room and bath were very clean The shower was quite small but there was good water pressure in the shower which is more important to us than the space.
We especially appreciated the friendly, helpful staff. They were always smiling and eager to help make our stay comfortable, provide advice about the town, or help in any way. The lady who makes up the room was super nice, and upon my request , immediately, and with a nice smile, removed the quilt from the duvet so that it was not so heavy. We really enjoyed having windows open for a lovely view of the Cathedral and fresh air during the night. All in all, a very nice stay and we would definitely stay there again in the future (we would just travel with smaller suitcases!)
