My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Reine Mathilde in Bayeux while taking in the battlefields of Normandy. If you are heading that way, the Reine Mathilde is a must.
Location - right in downtown Bayeux, which is the midpoint of the 5 Normandy beaches, making each beach a relatively short drive. The hotel is one block from City Hall and three blocks (short walk) to the Bayeux Tapestry. It is a short drive to the English Cemetery. The hotel has a restaurant and the food is good, adequate quantity and well presented and fairly priced. If your ability to speak French is as limited as mine, the staff speaks English.
Like all European hotel rooms, the rooms are small but are well maintained.
