Highly Recommend Hotel d'Argouges in Bayeux

We've stayed at Hotel d'Argouges in Bayeux at least 6 times and love it. The owner, Mme Ropartz, and her staff are all wonderful.
The hotel looks like a manor house, they have two lovely gardens and beautiful flowers. The rooms are very clean and large, with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are large and clean. They have breakfast included in the price which is top quality and delicious, served in their beautiful dining room. They have free parking. The hotel is in the heart of town next to the town square (great outdoor market a couple days a week) but it's down a long driveway so it's very quiet. Mme Ropartz and her staff will help you in any way they can with your visit to Bayeux and the area. I can't recommend Hotel d'Argouges highly enough.

Hotel d'Argouges gets my vote too! I stayed there 3 years ago with my family as we toured Normandy and I would definately stay there again.

One of my all time favorite hotels in one of my favorite towns. Sometimes hotels are just places to sleep and park your luggage and sometimes they are part of what makes a place so special. Hotel D'Argouges is the latter.

I agree, a very comfortable hotel. An added bonus is that there is a laundromat across the street.

Thanks for posting Christine, Patty and Laurie Beth, I'm glad you all enjoyed it as much as we do.

Good point Laurie Beth, I forgot all about the laundromat... so convenient!

We stayed in the annex building and had two big double beds that were placed together.
It was a nice stay & you can have your coffee and relax in the gardens.
One mornng I was able to bring early tea and jam/bread to my husband who is a diabetic. The breakfasts were full, hot, and delicious.

It is quiet as previously shared. We also used the laundromat down the street. Mme Ropartz & the staff were exceptional! It was great to leave the car in the lot and walk around Bayeaux.

On our last morning we entered the breakfast room and guess who was there? A Rick Steves group. I had not yet taken any of the tours but was using some of his suggestions for our Normandy & Paris travel. I had a brief chat with 2 ladies from this group over a cup of tea which affirmed my wanting to try a tour.

They were doing the Normandy DD sites that day. I saw them again in St. Mere Eglise while we were on our tour with Dale Booth.

We'd stay again at Hotel d'Argouges, but also enjoy trying out new places.
