We loved the romance of the whole hotel, it didn't feel like a hotel. The staff were delightful, there was a little dog there (not sure if he belonged to the owners or another guest) but I miss our dog in Australia, so I appreciated being able to rub his belly. We were here for our honeymoon and had hired a car to see the Tapestry and the landing beaches. Also loads of restaurants and cafes in the town. The Swans and the Ducks swimming in the pond and under the little bridge were devine. The bath tub was deep - there is a shower head, but better off just soaking in the tub. Very clean, and nice facilities. We also booked during off season and got a great deal! After booking I found it was the 'top pick' in my Loney Planet guide to France We did comment to each other that we were pleased to have hired a car to make it easy to pop out for dinner, so would suggest others did the same or investigated alternative transport prior to booking
THe location is amazing! 2 mins from centre of Bayeux and perfect spot to explore the D Day landings. THe deal we got from booking.com was almost half then if you went direct with hotel. The seetiing is divine - very countryfied with a lake and swans and ducs and enclosed with tress and manicured lawns. We really enjoyed our stay here. The nest bit was sitting next to the large firplace on sofa drinking delicious red wine!
The building and grounds. Not too many guests. No resaurant, so we could not find a good excuse to enjoy the building for the evening. The interior of the room was not so good. More like a B&B in the Yorkshire with a tiny television in a huge room and a 30 year old fridge that rattled and splurted all night until I unplugged it.
The surroundings and buildings are beautiful. The staff was nice and the rooms were clean. We stayed in a family room in the converted carriage house or riding stables. The room was two levels which was unique and we felt like we were in a townhouse vs. a hotel room. We would stay here again. We coudln't get the free wifi to work, even after talking to the staff and getting the correct password. The room we stayed in had two levels, lots of stairs and the bathroom set up was awkward. Downstairs is a toilet and sink. Upstairs a shower and two sinks, but no toilet. It wasn't such a big problem that it would stop us from staying here again.
very hard to find,they need to illuminate their signs at night since they are off on a small side road
Nice and clean room. The nature around the hotel is beautiful with swans in the lake in front of it. Big bathroom. The room was very cold during the night. Not walking distance to Bayeux
It was very enjoyable
We used the room as a base for travelling. It was clean, plenty of hot water and in pretty surroundings. Also it was a lot nearer to the old town and restaurants than anticipated. The breakfast was over priced - cheaper to go into town and eat. The room was basic but ok to use as a base. Over-priced for what it was.
A delightful and peaceful setting with friendly and helpful staff. You feel like you are deep in the countryside but are in fact in walking distance of all Bayeux's attractions and facilities. The spaceous and modern accommodation for a family of 4 was exactly what we wanted. Parking right outside our room. Breakfast seemed a little expensive. The WiFi was free but a very weak signal, at least in the Annex where we were.
the setting we had 3 in a room which was a bit cramped and the extra bed was set up incorrectly and very uncomfortable, extra towels for the 3rd person were not supplied.
the room was very clean and large. It was nice to have hot tea & instant coffee in the room. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. We were given only 1 bath towel (for 2 people!), but of course, did not realize this until the next morning.
Price Clean Room size...very small
The rooms were clean and very functional and also surprisingly soundproofed considering they are in blocks. Booking in was fast and efficient. We were very disappointed with the main courses of our dinner and also with the service the staff gave. It felt as though we were in a fast-food restaurant being rushed through everything, not a very common experience in France. The food we felt was not at its best (probably microwaved fast freeze products).
Very close to all venues at Bayeux No need to drive
friendly staff the food!
Warm, clean room with good size bathroom. Easy walk to the city and easy to find. Tea and coffee making in the room. Lovely view from the room to the cathedral.
The hotel was very clean; the rooms are small, but have everything you need. Sheets are crisp, bed is very comfortable. The front desk people were great - gave us good directions to the tourist sites, and spoke excellent English. This is not a fancy hotel, but if you are looking for a clean place to sleep, easy walking distance to Bayeux, at an excellent price, you can't go wrong.
Good location and really helpful staff. Breakfast really good. Showers great. Staff arranged for rooms at front of Hotel for security of our motorcycles, although the area is secure. Area is really quiet, so a good nights rest guaranteed. Short walk in to town, where there are many restaurants, although some are very busy, so don't leave it too late.Ten minute walk to the Battle of Normandy museum, and British cemetery, these are a must see. Bayeux is a pretty town with lots to see, and is central if you are visiting the D-Day sites, as we were.
The convenience to the Normandy Day Landing Sites and the easy access to Normandy in general
Reasonably priced and close to the center of town The walls are very thin so you can hear everything next door
Hotel staff were very helpful.
Perfectly placed, near the town centre, but also in a quiet location with no disturbance at all during the night. The owners are fantastic and go out of their way to make you feel welcome at all times. Their suggestion for a resturant to enjoy dinner was outstanding and less than a 5 min walk from the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and would return again myself if the opportunity arose. Also, car parking was the most secure arrangement I have ever encountered, 100% safe.
Loved the location near the D-day beaches; very comfortable beds Hard pillows gave me a headache.
Location was outstanding. Easy walking distance to many great restaurants and beautiful sites. Cerainly extremely appreciative of the D-Day Sacrifices and the hotel staff was incredible. My rooms Shower stall was a little tight for me. I am 6' 2" - 210
The location was central to the attractions of Bayeux -- the Cathedral, the Bayeux Tapestry, the restaurants. Our family room, #1, was adjacent to the lobby and very noisy as guests came and went.
The woman running the hotel was very lovely, but spoke NO english, which made it a bit difficult, but with hand gestures and a lot of nods she made us dinner reservations at a great restaurant. It was very convienient to where we were going. The continental breakfast was fantastic and although it typically starts at 8am, she had it ready for us at 7:30 because we had an early departure; very much appreciated! Our bathtub/shower did not have a shower curtain?!
We arrived a day early and we were able to stay for that night as well in the same room. Very friendly staff and good value for money. Room was huge - reminded me some what of a school dormitory! Bathroom had a strange odour.
very friendly staff, spacous, great view
We visited the Normandy beaches and stayed at Le Bayeux two nights. The staff was very accommodating and the breakfast was wonderful. I would highly recommend people visiting this beautiful town and region, staying at the Le Bayeux.
Very quaint and comfortable. Good location to city sights but not so close as to be busy
Etap is basic 'motel' accomodation. Staff at Bayeux were friendly and helpful at all times. room is sparce but functional. Comfortable bedding, daily clean towels, and very clean. Breakfast if taken is basic continental fare, but no real limit to quantity available. Hotel seems constantly busy with travellers but quiete at night and in a quiete location, but easily found near a major trunk road junction. 10 min. drive from Bayeux, a little too far to walk. One criticism, only relevant if needing to order food in daytime or evening. The 'menu' is a heat and serve type, very limited and sad to say, not of a particularly good standard. Manageable if no other options, but the most basic cafe or bar would be a better choice.
I found the hotel to be excellent value for money. Totally functional and spotlessly clean. I thought the use of space was fantastic and it had all mod cons. I think this type of hotel would go very well in England and it should be the way forward in buget design hotels.
The beds and cleanliness of the hotel were fantastic! And the fact that the rooms was soundproofed made a huge difference to my night's sleep. Wifi in the room was also great. Really convenient if youre looking for a quality hotel for an overnight stop on a roadtrip. Their breakfast wasn't amazing but still, if you're in a hurry to get back on the road, was decent to keep you full for most of the day.
The fact that it was between both Arromanches beach, Hill 112 and war cemeteries which we wanted to visit. Staff very helpful and friendly and also helped us find a vet before we arrived so that we could get the dogs wormed and ticked before our return ferry crossing. hotel cleanliness immaculate and still allowed dogs to stay in our room. No problems allowing us to change to a ground floor room which suited the dogs better so that they didn't need to use the lift. the quality of the evening food very basic and crepes very bland but service and cleanliness good.
as above went with my son
Cleanliness of hotel was fantastic. Very comfortable with good service. Would definately use ETap in future. No dislikes.
Staff very friendly, good breakfast, very clean, easy to find from main road.
The staff were welcoming,professional,very friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Microwave food offered outside breakfast was not good.
The hotel was in the perfect central location for exploring D-Day sites and easy to find right off the motorway. You have to drive a couple miles into Bayeux to get to restaurants, but not a big issue. The value for money is fantastic. I thought it was great that there is a bed for children at no extra cost, and my kid loved the bunk bed setup. The rooms are very clean, modern, quiet, and the staff are friendly and speak very good English. The only thing I could find that I didn't like was that the mattress was a bit firm for my taste, but that's just a personal preference.
Cost and handy location
good clean and comfortable with good access to local historic interests.Helpful friendly staff. Free parking which is always a bonus and good value for money. What I have come to expect from Novotel and accor in general.
Frieindliness and courtesy of staff.
Comfortable bed mattress. Good restaurant. In room kettle & mini fridge (for fresh milk). Would have used pool, if not a cold wet June. Duvet too thick for summer - even with A/C, not enough oblong pillows. Square pillows are uncomfortable.
Reception good. Dinner poor, due to cold food and lack of condiments. Car parking good.
Hotel grounds and Location were Fantastic. Standard of Bathroom varied between rooms
Friendly staff, choice of food
The helpfulness of the hotel staff. My husband is in a wheelchair most ot the time and they could not have done more to assist us. We were disappointed by the quality of the food. The menu was rather restricted and was unchanged during our visit. One does expect more by way of excellence when it comes to food in France!
the town mattresses were lumpy. carpets were mangy.
nice clean room ,comfortable bed, staff helpfull ,sky news bar was a bit of a joke
Convenient location with free parking, comfortable bed (important), good restaurant No clock in the room
This very charming, well appointed hotel included not only helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly staff but also a workout room, secure fre parking on site, a spacious comfortable twin room with large bathroom providing plenty of counter space. Comfortable It was a little difficult to find even though it was I a superb village location. Watch for signs for the Hotel Churchill. Villa Lara is right next door.
room layout was spacious. No
Very nice property and staff Nothing
Outstanding hotel with exceptional service. Our room was beautifully furnished and overlooked the cathedral and a nice park/river. Centrally located within Bayeux, and an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and the Bayeux tapestry. The owner.
Elegant and conveniently located. Professional staff. Room very luxurious with lovely view. No
The evening meal was very expensive and although it was O.k it did not warrant the price No lift this should be pointed out at time of booking, for the elderly it is impossible to get to rooms on the third floor
Dining room very good No lift and limited baggage assistance
Great hotel with a sense of history. Great service, great location, very clean rooms, great service.
Sophie at reception was welcoming and personable. During our stay, the bar was unavailable due to private parties. This was disappointing as the bar with its large fireplace and frames photos of past celebrities lends this public area considerable charm and ambiance. Also, the breakfast buffet was really just a continenetal breakfast. The egg boiler did not work. The menu in general needs updating.
The staff was wonderful. Friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, cleans and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was also a good size.
Staff was friendly and accomodating, and the room was clean. Restaurant on site and easy to walk around town without having an auto. The rooms and beds are small.
The hotel represented absolutely superb value for money - The staff were pleasant, the rooms were immaculately clean with mini-bars, LCD TVs and the most comfortable bed I've found in a hotel in a long time (and I travel all over the world on business). The bathroom decor was a little dated but more than compensated for by the cleanliness and the quality of the shower. The bar which was bedecked with signed photos of everyone from Prince Charles, Eisenhower, Montgomery and Stirling Moss to Tom Hanks, Lauren Bacall, John Wayne and Spencer Tracey who all stayed at the hotel was excellent and the restaurant was also very, very nice with extremely good, attentive service, akin to a quality London or Parisien restaurant. I cannot fault the hotel at all.
Beautiful building in a pleasant courtyard setting. The location is excellent for visiting the town with on site parking. Good buffet breakfast. The hotel is faded and desperately requires modernisation. A single, discoloured, plastic, plant in each window box defines the standard. The display of celebrities, who have stayed in the past, demonstrates the fall from grace.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel is ideally located for exploring central Normandie by car, and the town of Bayeux on foot. Hotel is tired and not quite up to scratch for the price. "free wi-fi internet", but only in small area by reception desk, does not reach bedrooms. tv is billed as having 15 channels, but only 4 in my room. Very limited supply of hot water. Not enough for a shower. As long as you're used to the quirks of small French hotels it's ok. Not sure what North Americans visiting for the first time would think.
location, history of the hotel for the price, a breakfast should be included. nice bar area but no one at the bar to serve you.
We enjoyed the wonderful experience of the hotel and great food....So close to the battle fields.....
The price, location and the hotel being very clean, also being able to have a breakfast in the hotel is a plus.
The staff was very helpful and the location worked very well for us. It was a great value and I would recommend it to others. Nothing
close to wwII sites.
As above! Breakfast is very simulary. There at least should be some cheese, baccon and/or ham or an egg. Every morning, there was only some marmalade or honey. It's even better to pay a little bit more, than this! The evening meals in are not from a high quality! Next time we still want to stay in this hotel, but we're gonna have breakfast and have our meal somewere else.
Ease of free car parking. Convenient to local area. Frequently the electronic key failed to open hotel door and/or the room door which in turn created unnecessary stress when reception wasn't manned.
Easy check in, very clean
Room was clean and tidy. No Tea or Coffee making facilities in room. Bathroom was small and diificult to use shower.
Quiet location - short walk to excellent restaurant Faulty toilet was not dealt with sympathetically
We liked the location, the staff, the cleanliness and the service. The hotel was located in the center of Normandy and was a great location for touring the area. The staff were very nice and many of them spoke English. The hotel was clean and well kept. The service was excellent. The price was reasonable for a hotel of this size and quality. I would recommend the Hotel d'Argouges as a place to stay. Nothing.
Excellent location , a historic building with interesting internal and extrenal features. Good Buffet breakfast Overpriced, Charging for car park.
A very attractive building with a lovely breakfast area and the staff were very helpful in booking another hotel for the next city on our trip.
Came in at 13:00 and would not let us check in,,,very upsetting. Breakfast was ok for the money.
The staff was exceptionally helpful! None---just wish there was an elevator
Very central and within easy walking distance of the town. The shower in the bathroom was useless.
we were welcomed warmly & they were accommadating with all of our reguests ie booking taxis , booking resturants ect. It was also very convient to town which meant we didnt need to walk far. nothing bad to say.
The staff was delightful and helpful.
Lovely garden and delightful decor in the breakfast rooms. Friendly staff Why no no shower curtain water goes on floor creating a huge puddle of water and making floor very slippery and potentially dangerous also no grab handles for getting in and out of bath
Great hotel wih beautiful garden & surroundings, great central location
convenience to the centre of bayeux and all its attractions The rooms on the top floor under the roof had very limited headroom and were claustrophobic, especialy as the two of us are tall
Very centrally situated One of the bedrooms had a defective light & the kitchen outlet fan smells came into the room. However, a change of rooms was promptly organised.
Stayed three nights, very pleased with our holiday vacation at the Hotel Reine Mathilde. The room is very clean and comfortable. The restaurant has good food and excellent breakfast. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. I would definately stay here again in the future, it is an excellent hotel, the best one we stayed in during our vacation. None.
Very nice hotel, price was what attracted me but once there I appreciated the resturant hours, we could eat when we were hungry.
Excellent hotel in central Bayeux. Very good staff, good restaurant. Sink in one of the rooms had no plug and the water would only run if you held in a button
The convenience to all the places of interest that we were interested in, ie normandy landings etc
Hotel clean, great location, and fair price. Staff was good too. Room was just fair. a bit rundown- no elevator
Room was nice and clean - staff understood English and was courteous & attentive - adjoining indoor/outdoor restaurant was convenient - cost was very affordable. Would definitely frequent again Street parking is metered during the day (0900-1900) with 2 hour maximums - free public parking is located quite a distance away but was filled to capacity
The hotel is in an excellent location, near D-Day tour departure points, The cathedral and the Bayeux Tapestry. Excellent service.
24hr restaurant, very near to the parking, tapestry etc Room not as good as it looks on the net, tight. No elevator (3 floors). Wifi did not work.
Friendly helpful welcoming staff, convenient location, clean comfortable hotel, nice breakfast, interesting photos of d Day and liberation Being in the middle of the old town,some noise did echo through the passage way in the evening occasionally.
Staff spoke excellent English and were extremely helpful and accommodating. Hotel is located in the centre of Bayeaux therefore convenient for shopping, restaurants and local places of interest. Although in the centre the location is very quiet. No road runs past the hotel. Has excellent local free public parking which is right next to the hotel which makes the carrying of bags and suitcases easy. The hotel did not serve an evening meal.
It's location and it's breakfast - super
Free Wi-fi Expensive breakfast
location - friendliness and helpfulness of staff - historic decorations
The location of the Churchill hotel was excellent for our touring of Normandy. The staff was great, always friendly and helpful.
The cheerful and helpful staff. Needs some updating (carpets).
We were 3 ladies traveling thoughout Normandy. We had rented a car and were driving from town to town. I found Hotel Churchill on Fodors.com on the France forum . I am so glad we booked there. Everything was wonderful - especially the staff. Danielle - worked the night shift and was so incredible helpful and friendly - as were all the other staff - he just happened to be the one we saw the most. He went out of his way to help us with changing a booking for another hotel and to check on getting gas for our car - which there was a shortage of while we were traveling. We just want him to know how much we appreciated him.. The lady in the gift shop was also wonderful. Thank you for a great stay!!!!
Charming & quaint. No elevators but staff personally carried our bags up to 3rd floor. Everyone friendly & helpful. Booking was a breeze. Located right on the main street in the heart of everything in the village. Woke up to the amazing weekly street market in progress right in front of the hotel. Flowers, vegetables, breads, cheeses, meats, fish, crafts, even a magician with magic tricks for the young ones. Best of all (which we didn't know) we could have walked to the hotel from the train station! Had we known, we'd not have had to wait at the station 25 minutes for a five minute cab ride!!!! So for those with rolling cases, be advised you can stroll to the Churchill on your own in only a few minutes. Loved this place. Near to everything & the hop on, hop off train is within a few minutes walk to see the whole village.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Location was superb.
Friendliness of staff, centre of town, easy parking, fair price, excellent ambience & decorations all good.
It was comfortable. The diinner at Restaurant Les 4 Saisons was good value for money
Not much The hotel staff was very unhelpful, and gave me wrong directions to a car rental place resulting in my getting lost.
Centrallocation Arrival/check in chaotic, 30 mins +. Shower tray drain inadequate, standing in dirty water. Diluted orange cordial at breakfast. Plastic beakers never changed. Parking cost should be shown.
Nice stone building. Easy access to D-day beaches, restaurants, tourist sites. 40 mins form Caen ferry port Noisy
Location was convenient to everything we wanted to see and do in Bayeux. Unfortunately, Hertz rental car at Total gas station required a cab ride to get to. Might be worth the effort to find another car rental place closer in town. Restaurant was o.k., nothing special and pricey. We were able to get the same continental breakfast down by the cathedral for less than half the cost. Room was spacious, bed was comfortable. Bathroom, although spacious, didn't work well. There was no place to put personal items.
Service and attention to detail The car parking charge was an unnecessary additional expense, guests should not be levied with such a charge when staying for more than one night!
size of the room toilet seat broken, mildew and mold in the bathtub
Meal at the restaurant was very good
Location.... you should put a computer in your lobby area so that guests can go online...most people on vacaton do not carry their computer with them
The food was fantastic! Two of the best meals in my life! The wait staff were welcoming to those of us with limited linguistic skills in French, The hotel staff were very helpful. The grounds were beautiful. Idyllic setting. The beds might have been less lumpy.
I have eaten a dinner. But from a objective point of my experience, its quality was very bad and restaurant staff's services was bad, too.
The location was wonderful. The hotel and grounds were beautiful.
The hotel is a dream. Staff are excellent, the room was beautifull and the food an experience not to be missed. Spa facilities are great. We have stayed in a number of similar hotels in France, this is the best by a mile.
Beautiful building and the landscaping was very pretty - friendly staff and very helpful. Loved the location. Winding staircase - some cobwebs in bathroom and bedroom. Breakfast certainly not worth the price. I wonder also who stays in the very nice rooms that are displayed in your brochure, it wasn't us.
Delicious dinner, very nice room, friendly staff.
Outstanding staff and restaurant. Beautiful French chateau located close to Normandy invasion beach and battle sites. From arrival to departure the chateau staff was very pleasant and extremely helpful. No, everything was great.
The facility is beautiful everything one would imagine for a Country side Chateau, the people were great and the food and wine were expensive but worth every cent. I would easily stay there again. I can't think of anything, the location was excellent
We enjoyed the ambiance and the staff were all very helpful. Thank you for a delightful stay.
The hotel was extremely quaint, maintained very well, and was an ideal location for exploring the several attractions in Bayeux. While Monique, the proprietor, doesn't not speak English, she communicates in a way that is very accessible (and I found this to be excellent French practice :) No complaints.
Immaculately clean room in a lovely house. Withing walking distance of Town. Free parking across the street. No tea or coffee making facilities in room.
It's ok, nothing special. The house is really nice, but they make you use a side door, and except for breakfast, make it clear you are not welcome in the area.
Beautiful building, modern, clean interior, free wifi
Beautiful hotel in a great location on the edge of town. They were very friendly and the room was great. None
Location is great. Close to city center and we could see the beautiful chapel from our room. Price was pretty good and the continental breakfast was surprisingly good. No internet service despite what the hotel staff said. It needed to be reset but the staff is not available after 10:00 pm.
A perfect place to stay -excellent location - only a few minutes walk from the town centre. Nice art deco/contemporary decor and a lovely smell in the stairways! Could do with tea making facilities
Great location, close to train station and main attractions of Bayeux. Very thin walls - was thankfully next to quiet couple, but wouldn't want to stay near honeymoon suite!
