Hotellerie La Joie Saint Benoit
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A great alternative place to stay in the middle of Bayeux. The sisters are friendly and speak some English. A safe room was provided for our bicycles, which was nice. Breakfast was in a large dining room where you clean up after yourself. Our room had a double bed plus a single, very comfortable. After breakfast we were free to explore the grounds of the nunnery / monastery, all in all a great experience. We did have to wait 20 minutes or so to gain access (the sisters may have been at prayers), so patience is a must - St Benoit's attribute is his ability to listen, so the bell will be heard eventually, as a notice at the entrance explains! The entrance was a little hard to find - go through the ironwork gates labelled 45, on Rue St Loup and walk across the courtyard to a covered gateway to find the bell.

Reviewed 30 September 2013

This hotellerie has served weary travelers for hundreds of years and the resident nuns still take care of the guests with the hospitality, care and dedication that only residents of a monastery can do. The location is only a few minutes walk from the cathedral and very quiet. The building was renovated recently and the rooms, very basic in design and furnishing incl. a modular toilet and shower cabinet, are clean and bright with view of the courtyard. A simple self-service breakfast is available in the assembly hall. Guests are invited to attend the 8:30 morning Mass. Free parking is available in a gated and locked parking area. Guests are provided a key for the main door with unrestricted late-hour access. All for an unbeatable price.
