France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Hotels: Bayeux, Normandy, France
Bayeux, a friendly, pretty town with a fine selection of good hotels, makes a great base for visiting all of Normandy and the D-Day beaches.




Bayeux has a fine selection of 40 hotels, inns and guest houses (chambres d'hôte) in all price ranges. Most are in the historic center, within easy walking distance of the cathedral, the Office du Tourisme, the Bayeux Tapestry Museum, and many good restaurants.

The luxury 4-star, 28-room Villa Lara Hôtel faces the quiet, garden-like Place du Québec and the River Aure only a few minutes' stroll from the cathedral and Tapestry Museum. More...

Beside the Villa Lara, the 3-star, 32-room Churchill Hotel provides a slightly less expensive, but still very comfortable, alternative. More...

Of the 2-star hotels, the 22-room Hôtel-Restaurant Reine Mathilde, just across the River Aure from Place du Québec, is the favorite, with helpful staff and a good terrace restaurant-bar. We stayed happily in Room 14, one of the four Superior rooms, with views over Place du Québec and the river. Note that there is no elevator/lift, and many steps to the 3rd floor. More...

The 5-room Le Petit Matin near Place Charles de Gaulle is a good example of a Bayeux chambre d'hôte (B&B guest house), a house from the 1700s with friendly hosts, and comfy rooms with private bath. More...

Bayeux has 35 more good hotels, inns and guest houses from which to choose. Here's where to find them:
