Where to stay in Bayeux, France

My husband and I are going to be in Bayeux for two nights in February.

Any hotel suggestions?

We have been looking at Hotel D'Argouges and Chateau de Bellefontaine? Any comments about either of these hotels?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

We absolutely LOVE Hotel D'Argouges!! We've stayed there 4 times. The owner, Madame Ropartz, is lovely and incredibly nice and helpful. All of her staff are also very friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful, with a beautiful garden full of roses. The front entrance is overflowing with gorgeous flowers. The rooms are very large, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms large and spotlessly clean. They have parking and a great breakfast which is included in the price. The weekly Saturday outdoor market is right across from the hotel in the town square. It's in the heart of town and within easy walking distance of everything (except the WWII museum which I highly recommend - our favorite one). The hotel is set back from the street and is very quiet, except for the birds singing, which I love to hear. You will love this hotel!

We stayed in 2 different places in Bayeux, but we really loved Hotel de Sainte Croix the most. It is beautiful, we had a king size bed and huge bathroom, gorgeous antiques through-out, a charming hostess and a delicious home-made breakfast buffet. Price was reasonable too, we paid 75 euro for double in July.

Here's a second vote for Hotel D'Argouges. It's a beautiful hotel with a nice breakfast. I highly recommend it, too.

We also absolutely loved the hotel d'Argouges. Staff were wonderful and friendly. Hotel is gorgeous (I would have preferred a shower.) Breakfast is outstanding and wine in the back garden was delightful.

Another vote for Hotel de Sainte Croix. Defintely the best breakfasts I have ever had at a B&B. Every day is different and every day is delicious -- all home made.

Carroll, did they have that chocolate tart thing? That was just soooo yummy. I wanted the recipe, but my French is non-existant and the owner / hostess didn't really understand my English. It was truly a delicous breakfast.

Will go back there for sure some day. Have more Battlebus tours to do.

Jo, I can see that we did not stay in Bayeux long enough (3 nights). We did not have the chocolate tart. Well, that's just one more reason to go back to Bayeux. I would like to take more Battlebus tours too.

p.s. You were one of the posters who convinced me to stay at Hotel de Saint Croix, so let me take this opportunity to say thank you! We loved it.
