“Center of town”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

The Hotel Reine Mathilde is in a great location in the center of the historic town. It's a great place to explore Bayeux and a base to visit the Normandy beaches from. My room was small but had great closets for hanging clothes and was very clean. The room's view of the town cathedral towers was a great bonus. The staff was professional and helpful--and able to quickly find the right coworker to answer my question. I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Great center of town location, but quiet. No fan or AC in the rooms, so rather hot and stuffy during the night (July), but not unbearable. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Lovely outdoor cafe/restaurant.

My son and I stayed here for two nights recently. The room was small but quiet, clean and comfortable. There was free wi-fi. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was OK but not particularly generous. Where this hotel scores highly is its location, being 5 minutes walk from both the Tapestry and the Cathedral, and we also had two excellent dinners in the outside dining area. Parking in Bayeux is difficult since most of the parking meters restrict you to a fairly short period and parking spaces are hard to find. We found an overnight space in the street next to the hotel which was free until 9.00am. We then moved our car to a free town car park about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, but were lucky to find a space at 9.00am, such is the demand.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. We stayed in the building adjacent to the main hotel
In one of the loft rooms. The bedroom was lovely and the bathroom was very spacious. My only problem would be lack of air conditioning as we were there during a very warm few days. Apart from that we had no complaints. We had breakfast on one morning and it was very good with a wide choice for a continental breakfast. All in all a very good hotel in a beautiful town close to the Normandy D-Day sites and beaches.

My family of six adults stayed here as part of a trip through Normandy. Bayeux is a centrally located and beautiful town - perfect for day trips to Mont St Michelle, and the WW2 beaches. It is walking distance to great cafes and shops as well as the Bayeux tapestry. The staff here was excellent. Our room for two was small but modern and clean. My four adult children had a suite in the other building, which was spacious, clean, modern. The hotel's restaurant featured delicious food and the bar even offers take-out coffee in "to-go" cups, a rarity in small towns of France. The hotel is across from the cathedral, and we could hear the bells right outside our window. A great place - which I found on TripAdvisor as usual. :-)

Room Tip: The apts and room away from the main street are more quiet.

We stayed in the annex, which is set on a quiet square behind the main building. The room was clean and comfortable with a very large shower and free WiFi. The breakfast buffet is good for hungry travelers, but if this is your first trip to France, understand that it will be mostly croissants and pastries, fruits and cereals.
The location simply can't be beat. You can eat breakfast in the shadow of Bayeux's magnificent cathedral, then take the short stroll to view the Bayeux Tapestry. Parking wasn't a problem, as there are two municipal lots within walking distance. (You'll want to walk around Bayeux anyway...it's adorable!)
