“Worst Novatel I've stayed in”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We generally use Novatel hotels because they have a reasonable standard and value. This is an exception though. The staff were friendly enough and 1st impressions after arriving in reception is good. However, the room are very basic and in need of a good refurbishment. We didn't eat there but chose the centre of town instead which is pleasant. It's conveniently located for D Day beaches and memorials. I wouldn't stay here again, very disappointed and poor value for money.

We used the Novotel for the base of our exploration of the D-Day beaches.

The hotel was very comfortable and clean. We were able to easily walk to the village center.

Also there is a grocery store within walking distance.

We stayed here as part of a Battlefield tour with specific reference to D Day Commemoration. Location is handy to Omaha Beach & USA Cemetery. Check-in pre arranged, was fast & efficient. Room was comfortable but had a strange setup with a door between the toilet/wardrobe foyer and the bedroom. Toilet was separate and difficult to enter and shut the door, much like an aircraft toilet and about the same size. Shower over the deep bath would be a problem for people who are unsteady or with balance issues. Room safe & free slow Wi-Fi inc. charge for fast Wi-Fi. Meal was a fixed menu and was bland and un interesting, except for desert. Breakfast menu had an acceptable range of typical hot & cold selections. No Espresso coffee! Room decor is dated & a bit shabby.

Nice chain hotel that appeared to be well cared for and maintained and cleaned well. Close to the battle beaches which was our main concern. Very convenient to get too and an easy walk into the heart of Bayeux. We will be back.

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Cherbourg from Paris. It is a lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was the best of all 5 hotels we stayed in this trip. We also had dinner in the hotel as we were too tired to go out and the food was terrific. I would definately recommend this hotel. It is about a15 minutes walk from town, but go on we all need to take more exercise.

This is a typical Novotel, which is good because you know what you are going to get - clean, bright rooms, helpful and friendly staff and fairly decent food. What else is there to say about a Novotel?

Location is good - just on the outskirts of Bayeux, easy to find and with plenty of parking.
