The reception was friendly and helpful. Rooms are basic, but clean and serviceable. The lounge bar is comfy, and on a cold winter's night, very cozy with a roaring fire and a scotch. My only gripe would be the parking situation is not great. The hotel has their own spaces, but spacing is tight and they let cars park later...

Very clean and comfortable. Nice sized room for a European hotel. Staff was very nice and helpful. Great location in the downtown area. Nice little downtown. Parking is limited, so suggest reserving a parking space when making reservations.

Stayed here two nights, room was clean, comfortable, the heat worked fine, staff was great. Location is great, right in the middle of town. I paid the $10 daily fee for a parking spot in their lot, it was worth it.

This hotel is in a great location for visiting Bayeux and surrounding areas. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a good choice of food for breakfast, one could either have just a continental or the full works. The staff were friendly and helpful . We stayed here in December, and in the evening we would recommend sitting in...

The perfect hotel to stay in as a base to visit the historic sites of WWII. Bayeux is a lovely town with great restaurants and home of the famous Bayeux Tapestry. All the WWII sites were within easy driving routes . The staff was excellent and would definetly stay there again

Was an overall ok experience. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. Staff was mostly friendly and the location is very good. The negatives; bad wifi, very noisy (old hotel and you could hear everything), shower had mold. I personally wouldn't stay here again. However, if you are touring all day and just need a night it's central...

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...

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...
