when we arrived we were well received and were shown to our room on the first floor. It was a cold day and the room was warm and inviting. The room was of a good size with a compact but efficient bathroom. The decor is modern and elegant with a perfect bed for all types of backs. We liked the...

This hotel is conveniently located on the main street, but with a driveway and off-street parking (if you reserve). They had a sign with my name on it in the driveway where I was supposed to park when I arrived. It amused my friend to no end. The staff was kind and courteous, and out room was ready on arrival....

Loved this hotel - great location, staff delightful and helpful. Breakfast was not cheap but very good. Room was large with a view over the courtyard so nice and quiet. Downside is there in no elevator so taking suitcases up stairs is not a lot of fun.

We loved the history of this hotel. It was charming, clean, and the staff very helpful. Centrally located we stayed in Bayeaux and went to the Normandy beaches and Mont St. Michelle. Their restaurant had wonderful food! Especially good was their house special. We ordered the box lunch one day and it was only so so. We were very pleased...

Hotel was very clean, looks to have been recently renovated. Very much enjoyed our stay at Le Lion d'Or. Nice sheets, bedding and we had a nice breakfast. Very well located to walk to restaurants in the quaint town of Bayeux.

A lovely old historic hotel with friendly service. The bed was comfortable, the room small. Unfortunately, the lights outside disturbed my sleep, even with the curtains drawn, but I might be particularly sensitive. My favorite thing, though, was the bar. Leather club chairs, a roaring fire, photographs on the wall of celebrity visitors through the years... Would return to this...

We stayed 2 nights here with a room on the 3rd floor that was very comfortable and quiet. Staff was very helpful and it was worth paying them to take our bags to the upstairs room. Location is perfect for walking to restaurants and shops in town. We had a very good dinner there the first night and breakfast gave...

I asked for a room on the ground floor because I have a problem with stairs. We were given a large double room as requested and were delighted with it. The wet room was very smart and also practical and the bedroom tastefully decorated. We would have eaten in the hotel as the menu looked good but it was closed....

Great place to stay. Staff is so welcoming and helpful. Great town and you can walk everywhere. Train station is 5 minute walk to hotel. So easy. Christmas is beautiful there. You can visit all the D-day landings.
