This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at and we would highly recommend it. We stayed here for 3 nights the first week of November. Jessica checked us in and informed us we had been upgraded to a junior suite as we were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. The hotel lobby, sitting area with fireplace, breakfast area and hallways are immaculate. The décor of the hotel and rooms is superb with fine attention to detail. For example we spoke with the owner about how much we loved her hotel and that we had noticed that the mini fridge in the room was even silent. She shared that they chose from 3 different refrigerators and chose these for the quiet they offered within the rooms. This attention to detail and care for the comfort of her guests illustrates the experience we enjoyed. The room had a hallway, a closet, a safe, a large, clean bathroom with a luxurious shower, a large bedroom with a comfortable bed and high quality linens, a mini-fridge, desk, a separate sitting room with a clean and comfortable couch all surrounded by large windows that opened and provided a view of the cathedral, stream and courtyard. The blackout curtains blocked out all light and provided a sound night’s sleep. The room was very quiet and we heard minimal to no sound from adjacent rooms. We heard no noise from the room above. The parking was free, gated and easy to come and go out of. The staff were wonderful with special thanks to Jessica. The value was excellent. I can’t say enough about this hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and would love to stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Villa Lara is a small privately owned luxury boutique hotel with a chic but casual atmosphere in the historic center of Bayeux, along the Aure River in a very quiet square facing the 11th century majestic cathedral and just next door to the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Our 28 rooms are appointed in an elegant French style with 8 different color schemes. All the furniture is made by Moissonnier, a well-known French company founded in 1885. Its cabinetmaking skills have been passed down generations, bringing the past to life with light touches, suggesting without imposing, breathing new life into traditions to make the present feel magical again, and creating jewelry for the hotel while cultivating an offbeat style-such is the spirit of Moissonnier today. All the rooms are accessible by lift and equipped with air conditioning, a minibar, large flat-screen TV and safe. The marbled bathrooms have a walk-in shower and also a separate bathtub in most of the rooms. The rooms range from 30 to 50 square meters with a view on the Bayeux Cathedral. Beds are minimum 1.80 x 2 meters and in most of the rooms can be up to 2 x 2 meters. Wireless high speed internet access is free throughout the hotel, which features a cozy bar/lounge area with a fireplace and a library, a marbled lobby, and a breakfast room set in a traditional French style where the breakfast is prepared and served in front of the guest. Our complimentary fitness center is available 24/7 and equipment includes a treadmill, bicycle, and strength training machines. A private carpark is available with 15 spots and a drop-off space for buses. Although we meet the official government criteria of a 5-star property, we do not have a restaurant, a spa, and a formal bellman at the front door. We do not want to mislead our future guests who attribute these specific amenities to their image of a 5-star property, although we do of course provide porterage and turn down. And, as always, our commitment to 5-star service is at the forefront of our day-to-day operations. ... more less
