Hotel Churchill is a great location!
This review is the subjective opinion of a TravelPod member and not of TravelPod.com.
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.
I checked in to the hotel in a very cold day. To be perfectly honest I was not expecting such a kind of people who speak English very well in the reception. Mrs. and Mr. Hebert who are the owner of the hotel gave me very warm welcome and offered me a cup of coffee before going to my room. Also they gave me some information about the area and the most attractive places in Bayeux. It was very kind and helpfully. During my stay in Churchill Hotel, they helped me to make a booking for sightseeing tour and they gave me information about restaurants which are serving delicious food with reasonable prices. By the way the breakfast in the hotel is very rich and very quality. They are serving special French cheeses and local food.
I have been informed that the hotel has been renovated and all rooms have been decorated recently. The rooms are quiet big, clean and very comfortable. The quality and service which were given by Churchill hotel staff is definitely perfect and over 3 star hotel standard.
The location of the hotel is in the city centre and on the main street of Bayeux. As far as you go out of the hotel, you can find so many shop, restaurant and bar. Also it is just two minutes away from the main tourist attraction places such as Cathedral and Tapestry. They have very big car park in front of the hotel and this is free of charge!!!!!
If you are looking for a hotel in Bayeux, I can offer you this lovely place. I am definitely sure that you will enjoy every minutes of your stay in the hotel. The staff is like one of your friend. I will absolutely go there again.
I hope you have a nice trip.
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.
Clean, comfortable, hospitable
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.
The hosts- a man and a woman whose names I do not remember- spoke excellent English, and recommended good restaurants. They were very helpful when we needed to get to points outside of Bayeaux; their driving directions were accurate and much-appreciated.
This hotel is close (a 4 or 5 minute walk) to the Bayeaux Tapestry, and steps away from the Bayeaux Tourist Information Center.
We would definitely stay at the Hotel Churchill again, and recommend it to others.
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.

Yesterday - The commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion was everything we expected, and more. Transportation was interesting, and that is saying the least. More on that later. The event itself was breathtaking. There were probably 5000 people in attendance, including President Obama and the President of France, Francois Holland …
After an inauspicious beginning (Bob set the alarm for 4:30pm!), we have arrived and accomplish all of our many requirements to get to attend the American-French commemorations at the American Cemetery. I'm too tired to go into details, but have included a photo of the capstone of the day.
We appreciate your prayers!
... Lunch was roast duck with French style apple pie for dessert, very nice. During the afternoon we visited the landing beaches. Pointe du Hoc still has a lot of the original craters from the allied bombings which George had great fun running in and out of. There were mostly oldies on the tour and they though that George was hilarious. We saw the German batteries with ...
September 6, Saturday
Last night we stayed in the sea side town of Arromanches which was known as "Gold Beach" during the D-Day invasion. The establishments in this lovely little town had signs in the windows thanking all military for liberating them in 1944. D-Day for this community feels like recent history.
Upon arriving in Arromanches we saw remains of one of two floating harbors that were created to allow ...
