Such a charming place. The food was great.And so was the service.This place is 250 yrs. old.And it is in a town that also has some nice restaurants.I loved it!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If staying for more than one night be prepared to drive into town to eat . Restaurant was good but service very slow, only one server to do everything from taking orders, serving, answering phones, checking guests etc. Food was good and favourable Bring your own hair dryer as one in room took forever to dry long hair. Internet frustrating but that's […] Europe for you Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful grounds, quiet"
This is a lovely place with good food and service. The location is very close to Bayeux and a good spot for touring D-Day beaches.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Charming hotel close to historic WWII sites in Bayeux. The chateau and grounds were beautiful. Creek running through property with ducks, geese and swans swimming. Historic building with old-world charm. Room was decently comfortable, but the bed was 2 single mattresses pushed together. Staff was friendly, but did not speak as good English as we hoped. […] It was easy to get to and from the hotel with our rental car, but we didn't use public transportation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOVELY CHATEAU AND STAY"
WE LOVED THE CHATEAU AND SURROUNDING GROUNDS. THE STAFF WAS BEYOND HELPFUL AND COURTEOUS AND ALWAYS GRACIOUS. OUR ROOMS WERE LOVELY AND VERY FRENCH. THE RESTAURANT WAS EXCELLENT WITH A WONDERFUL ENVIRONMENT. WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN. ONLY A 15-20 MIN WALK INTO BAYEUX.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet location within walking distance of center"
This country chateau is within about 0.5- 1.0 km of the main destination spots in Bayeux, ie the cathedral and the Bayeux Tapistry. This eliminates the bother of navigating the narrow, sometimes busy streets in the center with a car, for those who don't mind a short walk through town. There is ample parking on the chateau grounds, best to leave the […] car there when going to the center, and take it only when visiting the Normandy Invasion Beaches a short distance away. The only sounds that punctuate this beautiful, quiet setting come from the birds, ducks, and coots that inhabit the small lake and moat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"beautiful place and a great value"
A great place to stay. Very quiet and very well decorated. A real value. We stayed at another b&b in town for two nights and there was no comparison and we paid more money. We loved this place. I would suggest they do a quiche or egg casserole for breakfast. It would be a great honeymoon place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent one night prior to taking the Normandy tour. Took the train to the Bayeux Train station and walked about ten minutes to the Chateau. Check in was easy, and the property was surprisingly beautiful, and the room was great....very clean and quiet. About a ten minute walk into town to pick up the tour or check out the downtown areas, restaurants, […] the Cathedral, etc. a great stay.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two fantastic nights"
From the moment we arrived and drove up the long driveway the experience kept getting better. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful in unloading our bags and getting us situated. The room was warm and inviting. The bathroom was very clean and modern. The tall windows afforded lots of light and great views of the large surrounding grassy grounds. […] The rooms were quiet. The reception room was most inviting. Dinner was most enjoyable and service was good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone in the Bayeux area. Oh yes, the moat that lines the entry has wonderful swans and geese to entertain you as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed one night so we could explore the D-day beaches the next day. The place is gorgeous. It had a stream that ran through the property with swans and ducks playing. The room itself was a 2-story suite. The bed was comfy and the shower was great. Wish we stayed longer. The wi-fi was weak in the room but once just outside of your room or in the lobby […] it worked fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I travelled with our two grown daughters to Bayeux in mid December. We arrived at the hotel in the early evening so decided to have dinner there. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a scrumptious meal. Our daughters especially liked the french fries! Our room was in a separate bldg. from the main hotel since we had a room with a loft. […] It was very large and comfortable. When we checked out, the hotel very graciously watched our luggage while we drove to the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach. This area is about a 10-15 minute drive from the hotel. The grounds of the hotel are very beautiful and it was decorated nicely for Christmas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Beautiful property an hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
A lovely Chateau/Hotel.........quiet setting on the outskirts of Bayeux. Your map in the reservation confirmation did not print out -- and we had a lot of difficulty locating the hotel. We arrived late and although we were two single women who booked separate rooms--we were each given a duplex studio apartment not located in the main chateau. We would […] have preferred a room in the main hotel. They had some electrical problems during our stay--the lights went out during dinner and candles were provided. During our stay we had no wifi or internet connection. However, this is a lovely family-run establishment.........highly recommended. Good food. The other guests were very friendly.

"Elegant and comfortable"
Loved this chateau! Beautiful surroundings. Wish we'd had more than just one night to enjoy all it's amenities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Typical B&B Facility"
The hotel is typical of a family-run B&B, and not a true 4-star facility. There are many "rough edges" on maintenance, landscaping and general appearance of the rooms and grounds. We stayed in a "suite" in the former barn. The bed in on the ground level, with the bath and living room in loft above. The stairs are somewhat hazardous to negotiate at night. […] Overall, however, the staff sincerely tried to make us feel welcome and provide a good level of service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely chateau outside of Bayeux"
We had a lovely stay at the Chateau Bellefontaine. It's a short drive (5 minutes or so, probably less if you know where you're going) from the center of Bayeux and the cathedral. It's extremely convenient for visiting Normandy in general. The grounds were quite pretty, and the staff was friendly. The room itself was pretty spacious and had a nice bathroom […] with a tub. The only complaints I have are that the whiskey in the downstairs bar was overpriced and there was no shower curtain - really first world problems. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hard to find and surrounded by Industrial Sites"
Hotel was great and perfect apart from its location and the very large advertising hoardings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked this hotel wanting to say in Old chateau. The Chateau is in two parts, the Main house and the converted barn which was converted into 4, 3 story townhouse rooms. I was disappointed in not staying in the 'Old House" but the townhouse was super nice. We did not eat there but instead ate in townl. The people we did see eat at the restaurant were […] formally dressed either buy choice or design we chose a less fomal setting. The setting was very relaxing with the lake outside your door and the swans and ducks swimming around. Lawn furniture outside under the many tall shade trees made us want to stay instead of sight see. Next time we will dedicate some time just to relax around the lake. The ladies who run the place were very nice and forgave my poor french. I wish we had more time to spend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful setting in old manor - pretty grounds - swans and ducks - parking on site - short walk to town - low key, thoughtful staff - would recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a beautiful chateau on nice ground. There was a lake in front with two magnificent white swans and a field of white cows next door. It was a very pleasant experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint, charming and quiet"
Beautiful grounds and buidings just on the outskirts of Bayeux. Not a city hotel - more of a B and B. Expensive breakfast if all you want is a roll and cup of coffee. No AC, can be stuffy in September. But if charm and peacefulness are top priorities this hotel is hard to beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"very central to the D-Day beaches"
Great hotel. Breakfast was a good value with a good selection of food. We had a room without a shower for the first night. The hand held shower head with no curtain was a bit of a pain but for the next 4 nights we had a larger room with a big bathroom and a shower. I would stay here again if I were to come back to this area. A very central location […] for the beaches. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Food & service was excellent"
Booked for 1 night but because the hotel, grounds, food and service was so good - stayed for two. We had intended to eat elsewhere on the Sunday evening (just for variety) but travellers beware, Bayeux is closed on a Sunday evening. Restaurant is silver service and our waiter was superb, while breakfast is served in a beautiful room overlooking a garden […] area. All very relaxing. A visit to the war memorial museum is a must. Check times for the English version of the movie which is well worth the visit.d Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Short drive to D-day beaches. Large rooms, comfortable beds. Reasonably priced. Accommodating staff. English satellite tv. Tame water fowl was a favorite! Come pat a goose!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful historic chateau"
This chateau is very attractive and set down a tree lined drive with a stream with swans and ducks alongside. So far, so impressive. The downside is that it's a half hour walk into Bayeux centre and the ring road runs behind and is elevated so there is some slight noise, though I didn't hear a thing with earplugs in. I booked the 2 nights through Expedia […] but when I arrived the receptionist said there was a problem as she only had 1 night available. I suggested politely that this was her problem not mine and showed her my reservation. She called a college who then shouted at me. I will have to call Madame xxx and tell her she can't stay, so you can stay, Madame, she shouted. I was exhausted and had to wait 20 minutes whilst this was all being sorted out and confirmed. the rest of my stay was good. The rooms was very attractive and the bed comfortable with good quality linen. I didn't eat there as didn't fancy lobster and scallops but what I saw looked delicious. The lounge area didn't have enough seats. There was group sitting on the sofas by a big fire and nowhere else for me to sit so I stayed in my room in the evening.

"Not Impressed. Reservation bumped."
Hotel had bumped me upon arrival...not impressed with staff. Ended up having to find some where else at short notice.Genuine Expedia guest review
When we arrived at the Chateau we were impressed with the ambience of the grounds. The sun was shining so the drive up to the Chateau although short was pleasant. The wildlife of Swans and varierty of ducks made it feel good and so we knew our stay would be perfect. The room was clean and very comfortable. A walk-in shower instead of a shower in the […] bath would have made the room perfect but we managed. We stayed here as apart from being my husband's birthday we wanted to see the Normandy beaches (Sword, Gold, Utah etc.) and this was the perfect location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel, unfortunately very bad service!"
Hotel is in a beautiful location with lovely rooms and the chateau itself is stunning, however, the service disappointed me greatly and made both myself and my boyfriend feel unwelcome. Not receiving details about the hotel itself restaurant, the local area saddened me as this information would have been very useful. The area's around and in Bayeux […] to do with WW2 and D Day are all truly amazing and insightful, a must see. All in all 4/5! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"bayeux chateau - complete with swans"
we enjoyed 2 lovely nites at Bellfontaine close ro the centre of bayeux. nothing makes you feel "french" like stayin in this chateau, beautiful room with big windows, fleur de le wallpaper, think heavy draperies....lovely modern bathroom....a note that our room only had a tub (a little hard to get into if you have "bad knees".....very warm welcome...had […] a lovely dinner in the beautiful dining room, and we felt it was good value for the rate we paid.. per nite.lovely outdoors for tables, lounge chairs, a river with ducks and beautiful white and black swans....there is no way you wouldn't enjoy this chateau...it made us feel special. it was only a few minutes drive into town, and if you're a walker could probably do it in about 20 min....

EnjoyableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived in the dark and left in the dark the next morning at 7:30, so I can't comment on everything. The rooms and the hotel itself are very beautiful. Everything worked except two lights in our rooms. We checked out before the breakfast. It was pretty weird that the hotel was almost completely dark at 7:30. We had to pay for the room the night before, […] and the next morning we understood why. Only downside of the hotel that I can come up with is the bath. It is an amazing bath, but if you want to shower everyday it'll take you a long time. There is no shower curtain or anything so you'll have to sit down, or else your entire bathroom will be wet.

"Great family accommodation in Bayeux"
We really enjoyed our short stay at Chateau de Bellefontaine. We stayed in the newly renovated apartments with a 4 yr old and an 18 month old. While it wasn't ideal for kids this age as teh apartment was on two floors wiht unsafe stairs, we made it work for one night. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, the apartment beautifuly appointed and clean. […] The breakfast in the morning was not great, but our son enjoyed refilling our juices wiht the machine. We would definitely come back, especially as the kids get older. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely location with ease of access to locations"
Lovely location, very nice hotel. When booking via Hotels.com there was no wher to show persons with a disability. The annex was very nice however the bedroom being on the upper floor and the toilet on the ground floor made hard going for teh disabled person in our party. We were unaware of this when we bookedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were just on an overnight stay on the way back to St Malo. As were were eating in Bayeux we didn't really spend enough time in the hotel to fully savour it. However, it is a lovely small chateau in pleasant gardens. The room was stylish and the bathroom superb.We wouldn't hesitate to return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastiskt slott med underbart vacker trädgård"

"Batisse de caractère"
Hôtel dans une demeure de caractère au milieu d'un parc arboré, très fleuri au mois d'avril et comprenant un plan d'eau avec canards et oies. Situation idéale, à quelques minutes en voiture du centre ville, tout en étant à l'écart de la ville. Notre chambre au dernier étage légèrement mansardée, meublée sobrement mais tout se qu'il fallait. Propreté […] de la chambre et de la salle de bain sans reproche. Accueil agréable. Nous avons testé le restaurant, tout ce que nous avons goûté était vraiment très bon et joliment présenté servi par un serveur très avenant. Un hôtel dans lequel nous retournerons bien volontiers !
