The Grand Hotel du Luxembourg was fine for a brief one-night stay - we did not arrive until evening and left by 8:30 the next morning. The room was decently appointed, with a nice in-room coffee/tea and water set-up. It seemed clean, but when I stepped on something in the middle of the night - some plastic piece off of something - it did make me wonder if it had been vacuumed, as I think that would have sucked this up. We were both dead tired and slept well, but both of us thought the bed might have us aching by morning. It did not. I read some reviews of poor service at the front desk, but the two people we dealt with could not have been nicer.
Because we were on a tight schedule the next morning, we went ahead and paid the 15 euros each for the breakfast, and while it was nicely laid out (and the warm croissants were definitely delicious), it did not seem to have a lot that really appealed to us - but that's just a personal preference.
It was well located in the lovely town of Bayeux, with many restaurant choices within walking distance (mostly Americans talking around us at the outdoor cafe, which was a little disappointing, but I guess we were deep in June of 44 invasion country.) There was quite a lot of loud and fast traffic in the narrow street outside our bedroom window, but once we fell fast asleep it never disturbed us. The pool was attractive and was enjoyed by several different groups.
We booked our room with Booking.com which was a bit less expensive than the hotel's online rates.
