The room was fine, but the food was easily the worst I've ever had. The staff refused to reduce the bill and our party left in high dudgeon. I personally find the idea of chicken(overcooked) with shrimp sauce from a bottle repellent, and unlikely to be called "chicken americain".

By the time we arrived to Le Lion d'Or, we had seen plenty of hotels - Premier Classe included. I really enjoyed the apartment-style rooms they had.

We drove from Cherbourg to the South & back, stayed in lots of hotels & Inns; this was the one I enjoyed most. Sparkling sunshine & flowery window-boxes helped. It's typically French; authentic & chic. We'd booked a room for 4, but got a suite, with 2 bedrooms, nice bathroom, a little lounge and even a kitchenette (useful for cheese,...
