This hotel was the BBC home base during WW2. The bar is full of pictures from WW2 era.
Nice, simple, french country hotel that is perfect for seeing the Bayeux tapestries (a must), cathedral, WW2 museum and local history museum. Great place to bike from into the countryside.
Restaurant breakfast and dinner is quite nice. Wine selection quite nice for being away from a major city. Be patient with the bar service. Reception staff doubles as the bar staff.
Agree with other com mentors...no AC in May/June is not a problem. No elevator isn't a major drawback either.
