Hotel de Sainte Croix
Ranked #8 of 31 Bayeux B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Florence speaks French a mile a minute. Thank goodness my DH is bilingual. She provided us with a fabulous room and a baby cot. The bed was the most comfortable one we had all our time in France, and the breakfast was the most amazing one our whole time in France. The location is great. She had very good recommendations for restaurants. Laundry is only 1 block away if you need it. The weekly market is right across the street. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: My parents had a room overlooking the back garden that was very lovely.

We had a family room from two nights on our way back from brittany and were very pleased. The hotel is very easy to find just follow signs centre ville and you end up on rue du marche outside. The house is very well kept with the children loving the cat ornaments, lovely garden and staircases. The room was very large with a comfortable bathroom and furnished with lots of curiosities. Breakfast was beautiful, the children were well looked after by Florence with hot chocolate, croissants, freshly made cake, brioche and fresh fruit. It is also in the centre of bayeux so easy to walk to main sites, shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again

This bed-and-breakfast was the least expensive of all the places my husband and I stayed in Italy and France, and it was my favorite. The décor was like a page out of "Victoria" magazine, the breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented, and Florence, the innkeeper, was gracious and friendly without being intrusive. We came to Normandy to visit the D-Day sites, so the hotel's location was a plus, and Florence even called to set up the tour for us. We loved our stay here!

This beautiful B&B was the first stop on our trip to France. Arriving exhausted from travel Mlle. Florence showed us to our beautiful two- room suite at the front of the house. It was large and comfortable, exquisitely furnished in period antiques, with a modern bath attached. To stay in such a beautiful historic home that has been so gently refurbished was a treat and a nice complement to the history and beauty of Normandy.
Rick Steve's calls the owner "friendly Florence" and indeed she was. She watched out for us throughout our stay, helping with details of restaurants, and calling our tour guide when he was delayed.
The beautifully prepared and graciously served breakfasts were the best that we had among all of our B&B stays, and that is saying a lot...they were superlative.
The only drawback may have been the noise from the street in front of the house, but since we were there on a Sunday and Monday, and up early, it was not an issue. You may want to ask for a room not facing the street if you think it may bother you.
Thank you for the hospitality Florence.

We stayed at this beautiful B&B for 4 nights in June. Our two-room suite was excellent in every way and a perfect choice for families-beautifully decorated, very spacious and spotlessly clean. Florence was a delightful hostess and very charming. The breakfasts she provided were extensive and a true taste of France. We just loved Bayeux and want to go back soon-we would stay at Hotel de Sainte Croix again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The Eugenie suite has a main room with king bed and a second bedroom with two singles.

Stayed here with husband and daughter in 2 separate adjoining rooms. Our hostess was very helpful and friendly, the rooms were very spacious and pleasant with lovely views and the hotel is in a good location with plenty of parking. I chose it initially partly because of the location and I was not disappointed. It is a bit challenging to find without a map (our unfortunate strategy) as Bayeux is full of one way narrow streets, so make sure you have a map, or your google maps with you. It took us a few days to work out how to navigate the town generally. Everything was very clean and comfortable and the continental breakfast was plentiful and nice. My only niggle was one I have had all over France, which is that where there are lots of hangings or fabric headboards near the bed, which seems to be quite frequently in all the places I have stayed in France, they do affect people like me and my daughter with a severe dust allergy and give us a runny nose and itchy eyes during the night. I know We are in a tiny minority here, so don't let me put you off!

What a wonderul B&B! My husband and I stayed here for two nights and loved every minute. The room was exquisite and decorated in a victorian style. The location was perfect, within easy walking distance from the train station (or a 9.00 taxi ride) and across the street from city busses that go to D-Day beaches. The walk along the town streets and the waterway were both enchanting. Follow the dining recommendations from the host and avoid the overpriced stuffy restaurant across the courtyard from the B&B, you'll be happier.
