Our flight to Paris was scheduled for 645 am and meant departing the hotel at 4am. For non-morning people, this was actually easier than I imagined and we arrived so early to the airport that the check-in counter hadn't even opened yet! First time ever for me! We flew Ryanair which is an ultra budget airline and notorious for being strict on …
We had a quick breakfast of baguette & orange juice from the bakery next door to the hotel. We had previously asked the front desk to summon a taxi at 9:00 a.m. We went to the front desk about 8:50 to check out and make sure our taxi was on the way and they had written down 9:30 instead. We insisted that we needed the earlier time and they …
I always wanted to see the WW2 landing beaches in Normandy and this trip - after a tour of Europe - was tacked on after. We spent 3 days there and saw the actual beaches, towns, churches, and museums related to D-Day June 6th. 1944.
Monday to Thursday:
Our Monday began by picking up our car in St Malo so that we could explore the Normandy countryside for the next few days. We drove to Bayeux via Mont Saint-Michel, a spectacular outcrop on which an abbey and supporting community is built. Despite being packed with tourists, we ambled up the steep stairs, along narrow …
Well time to finish our stay in Paris with a final walk down the Champs-Élysées. A visit to the Arc de Triumph to see where the "Tour de France" bicycles will finish in July, ...a great walk...and one more chance for Mildred to do some window shopping in Paris.
At about 2:00pm we were off to the train station to take our train to …

A small, old fashioned comfortable hotel by the English Channel and Normandy. Rooms small, bath small, no a/c and a bit noisy as it is on major street. Otherwise a nice stay. I would return there.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Churchill Bayeux
I only stayed one evening at the Hotel Churhill. I felt the rate was pretty high for what we received, but wanted to stay in Bayeux as it is central to explore DDay beaches. I paid 150 euro for 3 people. The staff was very nice and helpful when confirming reservations and check in. When we went out in the evening, we had to leave the hotel key on a rack in the lobby, but the desk is staffed, so hopefully the carefully watch the keys. The rooms were very clean, location was great and free parking. The major drawback I experienced was the noise in the hotel. We were woken up several times throughout the evening and in the morning from other guests in the halls, walking up the stairs, etc. We were on the 3rd floor by the stairs. I would recommend requesting a room away from the stairs. Since this is an old hotel, sound travels very well. Our room faced the courtyard which also contributed to noise. If you get a good rate and don't mind a little noise I would recommend this hotel.
I had never been in France before deciding to go to Normandy one month ago. I searched on the internet and made my reservation to the Churchill Hotel in Bayeux.
spent four nights here..a beautiful little hotel..rooms a bit small but the location and charm of the place make up for it..tried to get reservations at lion d'or but hotel churchill was so lovely that when if i returned i would stay there..owners speak excellent english and are most helpful..a very welcoming place
We stayed at the Churchill Hotel for three nights in September 2004. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. They have a lovely breakfast area with lots of windows and flowers. The owner went out of her way to enable us to stay an extra night without changing rooms. This hotel is central to almost everything in Bayeux and we could easily walk to the tourist attractions, shops and restaurants in town. We would definitely recommend this hotel to other travellers.
My daughter and I were in France for the Tour de France in July and squeezed one more day of vacation in just to see the D-Day invasion beaches. We narrowed our choices in Bayeux to 3: Lion d'Or, Churchill, or private home but I think we made the correct choice. As with all the hotels I booked in France, I needed someone who spoke English at the desk. My second requirement was air-conditioning (this was July). Although I always had an English-speaking employee to help me, the air-conditioning wasn't as common as in the US and we only had rooms with AC about 50% of the time. The gentleman who received us at the Churchill could not have been nicer or more accomodating. When I related how I was to be a part of the Battle Bus tour of the Beaches the next day, and I was worried if I really had a reservation with them(emails not the greatest) he called them on the phone for me and booked us on a tour for the next morning. Fortunately, Battle Bus had room and yes, my emails to them had not been received. Most important: if you go to see the Beaches, take a tour! Don't think you can see it by yourself - you miss so much. The hotel is older but very charming and has a large parking lot if you are driving (we were). It is in the heart of the town, within easy walking distance of cafes and the Bayeux tapestry. The bathroom was newly refurbished and spotless, the bed linens soft and cozy, and the gentleman at the reception desk told me he had booked us into an upgraded room since we arrived so late (no extra charge). The room had 3 large windows opening out onto the courtyard/breakfast area. Very nice. Price: 90 Euros (about $120 US). It did not have any Provence or toille fabrics or wallpaper that would have made it stupendous but it was good value for the price. Would stay there again.
The friendliest place in France
Francois & Rima Hebert are the most cordial, friendly and charming hosts anyone could hope to meet...and that attitude is carried out with every member of the staff we met! The hotel is literally only steps away from fabulous food in charming sidewalk cafes and all the charm of this storybook town of Bayeux including the Bayeux tapestry.
Living in a tourist town here in the States, I have to admit our hotel owners could learn a thing or two from the Heberts.
Forget Paris. Bayeux and the Churchill Hotel will be the highlight of anyone's trip to France.
We stayed at Hotel Churchill for 2 nights in Mid-May 2004. Our room on the 1st floor (this would be the 2nd floor in America) had a lovely view of the nearby cathedral. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. They supplied extra pillows in the closet. The bathroom was also clean and roomy, though an additional shelf to store toiletries would have come in handy.
Look no further - Hotel Churchill is THE place to stay
To anyone looking for an hotel in Bayeux, we had the most wonderful 2 night stay in June. The owners are just the most friendly and homely people and speak English where we sadly do not not speak French. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. When the trains were out of schedule due to the strike the lady (can't remember her name) phoned the station to check on the new departure time for us. When we realised we had some time on our hands due to the strike, she ushered off to see the tapestry and cathedral and made sure we knew what time to be back. The 2 days was just too short and we will definately be back to explore Bayeux again - our hotel choice? no question that we'll go back to the Hotel Churchill. Glynn Katzin.
I found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Their english was excellent. The room was a bit of a disappointment. Larger than the one I was in in Paris but well worn and old looking however...purple and brown bathroom...that should give you an idea. Tiny television and a bit on the cold side (breakfast in the morning was typical - bread, juice and coffee). On the main street.
Perfect location, clean, comfortable
We stayed at the Churchill for 5 days last Spring . We made day trips to the DDay sites and to Le Mont St-Michel. Because we had rented a car, the free parking behind the hotel is what first interested us, but we found it very convenient, clean and with a great breakfast included. The Tapestry is two steps away, the cathedral is across the street, the restaurants are all within a block. We highly recommend it.
