Hotel du Lion d'Or
Ranked #6 of 17 Hotels in Rocamadour
Reviewed 21 September 2017

Ideally situated overlooking the main street this hotel is in-keeping with the surrounding medieval architecture and history associated with Rocamadour.
Just as if time had stood still, the hotel is exactly as we had imagined, full of character and different to any other hotels we have stayed in.
We were quite surprised how much space we had in our room (107) and the shower room was also very spacious.
The restaurant is situated opposite the hotel, here again bearing in mind this is a 2 star rated hotel we found the food to be well cooked and tasty throughout our stay, mealtimes were however pretty hectic and sometimes orders got a life confused.
Overall our few days here were really enjoyable, thanks to Sally and her staff for looking after us.

Room Tip: Higher floors should have better views, but we were quite happy on 1st floor.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a coach tour. Our hosts were superb, very helpful, warm and accommodating. The hotel is old and full of character, our room was clean and comfortable and exactly what we expected. The location was superb, right in the heart of the town and the view from our bedroom was breathtaking. Don't expect 5 star luxury, be prepared for a quirky, characterful and slightly bohemian experience and you won't be disappointed. Sally is a gem and the food was tasty if nothing special. We liked it here!

we stayed here one night in August, we had planned to stay two nights but there was a family in the room next to us who stayed up past 1am talking and making noise with their kids. The walls were very thin and we could hear everything. We asked reception if there was another room and we were told there was not another room and they said they would not charge us for 2nd night if we decided to leave. We found another room in a different part of village and had a quieter stay in a place that was a bit cleaner and more modern. Lion D'or was great location and parking is included which is important in Rocamadour. Wifi is not available in the room, only in the tiny lobby area. Overall a decent place in a great location with parking.

Booked this as a one night stay while visiting the area with my family. The location could not be better as it is down in the town itself. Parking was easy and close to the hotel. Rooms are basic but ideal for short stays. In truth visiting the sites is the reason you come here. All facilities are there, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant for dinner which was really fresh and tasty. Everbody enjoyed all aspects of our stay in this great hotel.

We booked this hotel as we wanted to stay close to all the sights. In that respect, it didn't disappoint. It is within the medieval city ramparts of Rocamadour, on the beautiful pedestrian street leading to the Notre Dame sanctuary. That said, this is a very BASIC hotel, well past its prime. The rooms have everything to just spend the night and nothing more. No aircon, no minibar, not even a safe. Ditto for the bathroom. Basically you'll not want to spend any time in the hotel itself. The people running are quite nice though.
