Stay Away!Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: Location. It is a short walk to the center of Bayeux.
Cons: Everything could be improved. The breakfast buffet opens at 6:30, cost 12.50 euros, but by 7 AM, the coffee ran out, and no one was around to refill
Location: Notre Dame of Bayeux, the Tapestry, a quick drive to D-Day beach, drive to Mont St-Michel
Mattress is so bad, probably goodwill wouldn't take it. Toilette would not flush in one or two flushes. Hallway is very dark, dirty carpet.

A Decent Hotel in BayeuxPosted Jul 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a fine hotel. It's a little difficult because it has no elevator, and it is one of those European hotels that doesn't believe in shower curtains. But it is located within walking distance of the major sites in Bayeux, and the desk staff was very helpful about getting cabs for us. The breakfast was decent as well.

Cute townPosted May 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
Cute hotel with very nice staff. The room was larger than I have had in France. Very clean and bed comfortable. The toilet was in a different room than the sink and shower, but sometimes I think in the old buildings you have to work with the structure you have! The hotel was next too sites and just had a very nice stay. Thanks.

excellent locationPosted Sep 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
we had a wonderful time and saw all of the sites that we had wished to see...Bayeux Tapestry a highlight as well as the D-day beaches!
SitesPosted May 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
Close to the Latin Quarter, but far from the other sites. The metro is a necessity.

Parking was "complimentary" per our reservations. However, staff did not understand term "complimentary" and tried to charge 9 Euros per day. Parking fee was waived. Confusion with booking agency.

Quaint Bayeux HotelPosted Sep 24, 2011
Pro's: This hotel is real small-village France. It's quaint, a great location for exploring the Norman area, and relatively clean. Has good WiFi, for a fee of course. Con's: No A/C. We were lucky as the weather was delightful for France (low 50's at night). Parking is sparse. Our original room that was booked was way too small, had not-so clean bedsheets, and had standing water on an adjacent roof right outside the window (that was required to be open...see no AC comment) with pigeons surrounding it. A real problem if you have allergies or Asthma. Seems like an easy fix for the hotel to do...? they haven't done it? Luckily we upgraded to an available better room...In conclusion, I would recommend it as long as you don't expect 5 (or even4) star service.

Hotel Luxembourg, Bayeux.Posted Jul 17, 2011 on Hotels.com
The Hotel was perfectly situated for visiting Bayeux it was only a short stroll from the town centre and ideal for visiting a lovely area. I felt however that it was overpriced for the facilities provided. The breakfast was very poor and more than once they had run out of items and made no attempt to replace them. The bed was very soft and uncomfortable but otherwise the room was fine, tea and coffee making facilities would have been nice particularly since there was no room service available.

Good Location & Good Hotel- unhappy w/ very littlePosted Jul 11, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed at this hotel for 3 days at the end of June. The staff was great, but there was one person that just acted like we were the biggest inconvenience. Now, I speak French and spoke to her in both French and English so there were not communication issues. I love the French, and whenever someone badmouths French people in general to me, I'm the first to stand up for them because they are fabulous people and we've never had a problem. This person, however, was just uncomfortable to be around. Every other staff member was great, but maybe she was just having a bad few days while we were there. And we didn't ask anything outrageous - just for directional information or for 2 plastic cups. The inside of the hotel is pretty and they even have a courtyard surrounded by flowers where you can eat meals (which you bring in from a store or restaurant). The room was clean, however, the bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. To be honest, I didn't sleep much in Bayeux so I was very tired during the portion of our stay. Also, the hotel has a parking lot, which was very nice since we rented a car. This was not necessarily the hotel's fault, but some of the other visitors would park their car taking up two spots or would park diagonally - this was not easy to navigate in since the parking lot was small, but also because we weren't used to driving a diesel car and did not want to hit anyone/anything. I feel like one suggestion to ensure everyone is paying the rate for parking the cars would be to give any guest parking a car a tag - this tag (could be a paper or laminated tag) with a specific number that they put on file with the room information and then a hotel worker could occasionally step out into the parking lot to make sure the cars are properly parked and are being used only by hotel visitors. I just feel that everyone is an equally paying customer and should have equal availability to a parking spot if so needed - this was sometimes frustrating to use because of how people were parked. And if anyone loses the tag, charge them a 5 euro fee? Also, our room was located right over the parking lot (which was in theory another courtyard)...and of course people would be yelling at friends and family members while leaving or whatnot, so that would either keep us up at night or wake us up early on in the morning. If you're a heavy sleeper, you might be fine but maybe ask to be placed away from the parking lot? Also, the walls of the hotel are super thin - I'm not expecting concrete or brick, but it was just annoying when the Italian couple in the room next to us were having a screaming argument and we felt like we were in the room with them. I actually heard them screaming at each other while I was in the shower. I didn't want to call down (well, I couldn't at the time we were there because the phones weren't working) or have a worker go to their room because I didn't want to interfere with their argument but I also didn't want to bother the staff member that didn't seem too happy to talk to us. Overall, I'd probably stay here again for the price. However, if I go to Bayeux again I will probably just stay in Caen (20-30 minutes away) and take either the train or rent another car and drive to Bayeux for the day. The train station is a bit far from the city-center area where shops, restaurants, the Cathedral, and Tapestry are but if you're willing to walk it it's not insanely far away. Parking on the street would probably be difficult in some spots, but there are parking lots that have separate free and payment-needed hours.
