Perfect Boutique Hotel for the Budget Traveler
Posted Oct 10, 2015 on Hotels
This lovely boutique hotel in Bayeux, FR is perfect for the traveler seeking an authentic small town French experience. Perfectly located, it is a short walk to shopping, the Bayeux tapestry museum (a must-see), and a short drive to the moving and historic Normandy Beaches and the Calvados/Cider Trail. The hotel is consistent with the region, matching the history of a town that has been around for centuries. The room was clean and comfortable and the open window let in a nice fall breeze that made up for the lack of air conditioning. However, the open windows made allowed in some early morning street noise. Dinner was offered in the intimate dining room and drinks from the equally intimate and well-chosen bar. For the budget conscious traveler, this hotel is a charming find. For Americans expecting a Marriott, keep moving on. One disappointment--the breakfast was lacking. Pass on it and go to the local patisserie about 2 blocks away.
