Very nice hotel, price was what attracted me but once there I appreciated the resturant hours, we could eat when we were hungry.
The hotel is in an excellent location, near D-Day tour departure points, The cathedral and the Bayeux Tapestry. Excellent service.
The convenience to all the places of interest that we were interested in, ie normandy landings etc
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.
Hotel clean, great location, and fair price. Staff was good too. Room was just fair. a bit rundown- no elevator
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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
Beautiful building, modern, clean interior, free wifi
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.
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.
Beautiful hotel in a great location on the edge of town. They were very friendly and the room was great. None
The only bad point was that I had no hot water for a shower in the morning.
The elegance of the accommodation. the host's friendliness and desire to be helpful and the fantastic position of the hotel in Bayeux. It might have been nice if we could have made a hot drink in our room.
Breakfast was delicious...ordered direct from a local bakery. Croissants and bagettes...awesome! Service was fair. Staff seemed a little bit snobbish and was not helpful when we realized we had left something in our room a couple hours after checkout.
We had a large beautifully appointed room that opened on to lovely gardens and a bathroom with plenty of space. The guesthouse was extremely charming as was our host Anthony who went out of his way to make us feel very welcome and assist us in anyway that he could. The attention to detail in Le Tardif was second to none and the fact that it is so conveniently located makes it outstanding..
The host and the building No
The location was excellent for the centre of Bayeux. The rooms are gorgeous, very romantic setting. We'll be going again.
Comfortable ,clean, well appointed room in a great older mansion with a most interesting history. Host Anthony is friendly and attentive. The Guesthouse is centrally located..an easy 10 minute walk from the Bayeux train station, many excellent restaurants within 5 minute walk, magnificent 10th century cathedral across the street. I recommend without reservation.
Very nice accommodations and staff. Beautiful property and location.
Wonderful atmospheric villa. Great balance between antique-filled rooms with modern comforts. Quiet, yet perfectly located.
I really liked the "at home" feel of it, particularly since my "home" was a lovely 18th century mansion! It was in a great location for my Normandy tour. Anthony is a great host and speaks excellent English. Don't know if the one other review concerning this hotel reflects mine since I cannot view it, but I marked "yes" since I assume it's got to be a good review given my experience!
The location and the surrounding villages were AMAZING. The staff was very helpful and the friendliest we came across on our trip. I would highly recommend this location. We stayed out of season due to a family members wedding timeframe. $80 plus a night was a little high for that time of year with only a grocery store open two villages to the north.
Very romantic setting and beautiful antiques with old Parisian charm. Enjoyed our hostess and her daughter very much. Used a lot of sign language as we speak very little French. Price for only rolls and coffee are high. Room needs re-wallpapering, carpeting but is very charming. Grounds need sprucing up a bit.
The location right next to Colleville American cemetary is perfect. Right in the middle of all the historical Normandy battle sights. The WiFi was only available in the Hotel bar which seemed to open in the evenings sparatically. It was only available after typing a 35 number PIN (not kidding) into your computer which I think is silly. There is no else around that hotel to steal bandwidth.
Concept good, maybe best in the Summertime. It´s a beautiful aerea, and a lot to see. It was too cold in the hotelroom to be able to get the clothes dried (2.-5.9.) when washing. I thought the Hotel was close to Omaha Beach (looking at Google Earth). My suggestion: Bicycles would have been a good Idea to see the local aerea.
The woman at the check in desk was rude and not helpful. The hotel was great.
Very pleased with room - spacious. Attractive, pleasant staff. Initial reception - had to pay before taking room because clerk not there next day.
We were the only people in the hotel for 3 out of 4 days including no staff - . Breakfast was 8.30 which is quite late. Continuous every 2 minutes toilet cistern noise. Insistment by manager on us staying or paying for an extra night even though we gave her staff the required 48 hours notice. Poor value unfortunately.
Very nice location, good quality room, nice ambience. Price of the room is at the high end, price of the food/drinks is over the top.
Facilities, service, location, garden Long and expensive dinner
Everthing is doen to ensure you have the best stay possible
The staff were polite and made our stay enjoyable. The setting is rural and peaceful. Need to have bicycles for children rather than adults.
A real pleasure. Excellent discovery
The location was good, the food was well presented and our room was clean and tidy, the facilities were also good thought the price was a little on the high side
This is a very peaceful, quiet country inn, with gardens of very exotic plant life. A visitor should bring a botanical guide to fully appreciate the gardens.
Very good staff, nice restaurant, nice pool, had bikes for loan. Room was very, very small. Price was expensive for the quality of accommodation.
Godd overall quality of hotel and facilities and very good value and high quality restaurant offering . Overpriced for what it offers in terms of 1) Room allocated was not part of main house - - this should be disclosed on booking 2) Location 3) Bar prices are at London/New York 5 Star Levels .
excelent service lovely owners nice food great location should remove the plastic mattress protecters not very nice to sleep on
The rooms were quite basic although clean. We ate in the restaurant in the evening - the food was excellent. I think the rooms could do with some decorating and modernisation.
The owners are delightful. The staff is very friendly. The food is great! The crepe with orange sauce is the best dessert I had in France. Our newly renovated room was spare but the beds were very comfortable. There extra blankets but we didn't need them. The room was warm enough, The bathroom had a separate heater.
Proximity to the sea. Possibility to return easily at any hour. No
Hotel proprietor very friendly.
It was convient to all the locations that I wanted to see. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Sweet little hotel. Staff/owner very friendly and helpful, though do not speak a lot of English, we were able to communicate. Nice continental breakfast included with room. Room very nice, more room than we expected to have
We were met by Christian and taken to our room. Excellent hospitality. None.
The innkeeper made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. The room was quiet and cozy. Parking was very near. It was a easy walk to the town center and to the beach. A nice restaurant was in the inn with very good food. Maybe a telephone and a TV would be nice. However I didn't miss either.
A lovely small hotel in the centre of town with pleasant & welcoming hosts & incorporating a very nice restaurant
The hotel was modern and welll equipped, the bedding was comfortable and in general the room and facilities were very clean, tidy and quiet. As an American I found the room to be a bit small, especially the bathroom - where the unfortunate placement of a heater made it impossible to sit comfortably on the toilet - but by the standards of the other rooms we had in other hotels on the trip it was reasonably sized. The staff spoke English well, check-in/check-out went quickly and without delay. The restaurant was pleasant, the staff attentive and smooth, the food excellent and the wine superb. As a novice 'overseas' driver I appreciated the excellent signage to the hotel - once we entered Port-en-Bessin the signs led us straight to the hotel. Be aware that the hotel does not have a elevator. If this is an issue make sure to note that you will need a room on the ground floor. My wife requested an iron several times but it never appeared.
Ease of check in, excellent breakfast selections.
The staff was friendly and the hotel was comfortable. The rooms were a bit too small.
The Hotel is based directly on the Golf. The Photos doesnt fit to the real rooms, they are more simple.
Service was great, and access to parking was very good The room was very outdated and worn - smelled stale. For the price (over 100 Euro/night) I expected better.
Great localization, good restaurant, nice golf course. The hotel must urgently provide ramps to reach the rooms...was very hard climb the steps with our heavy luggages.
spacious grounds we were placed in two separate buildings even though we have younger children.
A nice location and good facility, access to swimming pool and free parking and internet..
The welcome and advice from the on arrival was excellent. The room though small was very comfortable. I could not access the internet in the lounge. The Receptionist was far from helpful - she did not want to know. This despit the fact that I needed to connect to confirm ferry times.
Excellent restaurant and breakfast facilities, attentive and helpful staff
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.
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.
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
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.
very hard to find,they need to illuminate their signs at night since they are off on a small side road
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.
It was very enjoyable
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.
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
Reception good. Dinner poor, due to cold food and lack of condiments. Car parking good.
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!
Friendly staff, choice of food
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.
Convenient location with free parking, comfortable bed (important), good restaurant No clock in the room
the town mattresses were lumpy. carpets were mangy.
nice clean room ,comfortable bed, staff helpfull ,sky news bar was a bit of a joke
Hotel grounds and Location were Fantastic. Standard of Bathroom varied between rooms
Frieindliness and courtesy of staff.
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.
We enjoyed being close to the beach. The food was very good. The room was clean and comfortable.
Owner could speak French and English and was extremely helpful, excellent breakfast, and good bar meals.
Cleanliness of a high standard quiet welcoming staff comfy bed nearby free parking None
The rooms were beautifully cleaned and tidied each morning. And I enjoyed having to use French to communicate as no one spoke English! Breakfast for 5 each day increased the bill significantly. I couldn't think of any way to provide breakfast for us all more economically so we were stuck with it.
Free WiFi, room clean, what food we had was good. Charged for 3 breakfasts at 8 euros each when we missed breakfast by 15mins on the first morning. Charged for additional 5ft bed for an adult after the price had been agreed on line. The car park is only free overnight.
Great location for seeing the Bayuex Tapastry and the WW11 landing sites. We also travelled to Monte St Micheal, but it was a long day.
Good location just a few yards from the D-Day landing beach. Comfortable room. Good breakfast of pastries, rolls, yoghurt tho' bit pricey at 8 euros. Dinner was also fine.
Lovely clean and roomy bedroom and bathroom, friendly staff in excellent location. Delicious food. Up steep stairs so wouldn't be suitable for elderly or infirm.
This hotel was in a great position to tour around the D-day beaches. It is in the centre of the facilities for Arromanches. The staff were quiet, friendly and helpful. They spoke basic English which helps. It was very clean, our room looked as if it had been recently decorated. This would not be ideal for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs as they were very small and winding. I would revisit this hotel if staying in the area again.
Good restaurant On 3rd floor up 2 narrow stairways
Ina good location with ample parking.The hotel was clean but furnishings were rather dated.Breakfast good A quaint hotel. Basic but adequate.
Location Room was small for three people, spiders in the room. Breakfest was poor.
A nice hotel located just outside the centre of Arromanche, ideal for groups and in a great spot for those visiting the Normandy beaches.
Quiet surroundings Inconsistent heating in room.
comfortable and quiet. Sea view
the staff was very helpfull the manager himself (owner?) was very nerveus, for exemple: when someone had finished breakfast, he jumped to the table to clean it as quickly as possible. The atmosphere would be better if he would act more relaxed.
Money was demanded on arrival the room was uncomfortable and smelly ants, food, room
breakfast was good dirty rooms 2 guests in different rooms were bitten badly by bed bugs
The position of the hotel, friendly staff and easy parking
Well located. Good menu, well presented dishes. Wines charged at silly prices.
used as a base for visiting the D Day landing sites and museums
Reasonable priced hotel well located with good restaurant Rooms need some refurbishment. Selection of menue could be wider catering for fussy teenagers older children restaurant quite expensive. Breakfast not good value restaurant staff not that freindly
Friendly staff, excellent restaurant, great beach location, clean rooms.
This hotel is always a good choice. The restaurant is an excellent choice when staying in here.
Location and good, clean, spacious room. The plumbing was strange. We never managed to get hot water, which the staff did not investigate. There was no shower curtain, making it very difficult to ue shower, without getting the bathroom very wet.
The hotel is beautiful situatet. the service perfect. and of course it is fantastic to be at the beaches, where the D-day was effected I have none
Excellent location - perfect for D day landings. We watched the sunset over Mulberry Harbour - just beautiful. no air con and some very noisy neighbours - but that isnt the hotel's fault
The friendly, helpful staff, the excellent situation and the good food and servioce.
Friendly, clean, excellent location. No complaints, loved it.
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.
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 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).
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.
The convenience to the Normandy Day Landing Sites and the easy access to Normandy in general
Price Clean Room size...very small
Very close to all venues at Bayeux No need to drive
friendly staff the food!
Reasonably priced and close to the center of town The walls are very thin so you can hear everything next door
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.
The location of the Churchill hotel was excellent for our touring of Normandy. The staff was great, always friendly and helpful.
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.
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.
Free Wi-fi Expensive breakfast
Very friendly and helpful staff. Location was superb.
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.
It's location and it's breakfast - super
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!!!!
Friendliness of staff, centre of town, easy parking, fair price, excellent ambience & decorations all good.
location - friendliness and helpfulness of staff - historic decorations
The staff was exceptionally helpful! None---just wish there was an elevator
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.
Great hotel wih beautiful garden & surroundings, great central location
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.
Excellent location , a historic building with interesting internal and extrenal features. Good Buffet breakfast Overpriced, Charging for car park.
The staff was delightful and helpful.
Very central and within easy walking distance of the town. The shower in the bathroom was useless.
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.
Came in at 13:00 and would not let us check in,,,very upsetting. Breakfast was ok for the money.
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
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.
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 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
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.
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 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.
Dining room very good No lift and limited baggage assistance
We enjoyed the wonderful experience of the hotel and great food....So close to the battle fields.....
Great hotel with a sense of history. Great service, great location, very clean rooms, great service.
