This B and B lived up in every way to the glowing praises previously received on TripAdvisor. Our room was on the second floor and was both spacious and charming, with modern shower and en suite and a nice outlook across the square. The whole building is 18th century, a lovely shuttered French town house full of character and with a lovely wooden staircase, though its character meant that the building felt less 'modern' inside than some. The Breakfast Room was equally charming with antique effects and furniture in keeping with the character of the house.
Florence was a charming and helpful (and well-informed) hostess. She prepared the most wonderful and tasty breakfasts, different each day, with some excellent cooking and gave us some useful tips on interesting things for us to do during our stay.
The B and B is within easy walking distance of the centre of Bayeux with its lovely cathedral, the Tapestry, the other historic and more recent features of the town and a great range of restaurants to choose from. It is convenient too for Caen, St. Malo, Le Mont St Michel, the D day beaches, Pegasus Bridge and the host of museums and other attractions to commemorate D day. Coupled with some lovely friendly local shops, and a Carrefour nearby, we could easily have spent a lot longer here than the four days we had.
It would be difficult to overstate the attractiveness of this B and B - we found it truly excellent. We would however agree with the problem of not being able to have the windows open at night because of the noise of the motor scooters and other vehicles passing by, but in part that may be because we are not used to night noise in our own home environment. Otherwise it would be hard to fault the B and B for the cost and we would highly recommend the Hotel St Croix.
