The hotel was wonderful. Great location and very attentive staff. There is no elevator at this property, but the ground floor rooms were nice and quiet. The restaurant in the hotel was good and the bar was quaint and had a good selection of local wines and spirits.

Nice comfortable hotel near the attractions in Bayeux. More importantly the resturant was out of f this world. After spending a year in France this was one of our last stops before our visas expire. It was one of the best eating experiences we had in the entire year. The food was elegant and loaded with flavor. The desserts were... More

It had been over ten years since I last stayed at the Lion d'Or. I had great memories of the place, and the second time did not disappoint. The furnishings were upgraded without losing the original appeal. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our second night, my mother did not want to eat much for dinner, so the front...

Lovely hotel in a great position. Lots of character and a cosy lounge with an open fire- perfect for pre dinner drinks. The staff were helpful and polite. The only downside was the sound proofing could be improved, however as its such an old property I realise this could be difficult .

This was a nice hotel, very charming. People treated us very well. I'm not sure if this is family hotel, we didn't find it friendly for small children. I don't think they have an elevator. Their restaurant food was really good too.

This is a solid choice for accommodations while exploring Bayeux and the surrounding war sites. Very friendly and approachable staff willing to help you with any tour planning. The location is great and you can walk there easily from the train station. I had carry on luggage so that was easy for me. The Main Street and old town are... More

Le Lion d'Or was quite comfortable and located right on the main shopping street and within walking distance of museums and restaurants. The restaurant was quite good and the lounge cozy and full of signed photos of celebrities that have stayed there.

Le Lion d'Or is a very pleasant place to stay. We had a superior room in what have must have been a gate house at one time. The room was large, quiet, and very comfortable. We chose this hotel because of its historic connection with WWII and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and responsive. The breakfast buffet... More

We stayed here as a base for visiting the beaches of Normandy. Bayeux is a short drive from Arromanches, Port Winston Harbor, a good starting place D-Day beaches. Bike ride from here and to these sites is doable. The hotel is comfortable, well-kept. We had a room on the top floor in the corner, so great cross breeze at night.... More
