It's not trying to be anything other than an average hotel. Yes it's old and decor is tired, but staff are very friendly and it does what it says on the tin. If you want to use their car park €9 per day/night, book in advance as there are only 15 spaces. Be warned, no lift, so be prepared to... More

The helpful staff and charming ambience of the hotel was a big plus. The breakfast buffets were outstanding and featured some special dishes created by their chef that you don't see in the typical buffet.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfast was a high-light of everyday with a wide choice of extremely delicious food, a marvellous juicer... More

The hotel is located at the start of the main street and easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and the Cathedral. The room was large by French standards however I was not sure of the African theme decode. The reception and bar areas are typical Normandy and are filled with D Day photos. Staff (I think his name was NJ?)... More

I stayed here five nights. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They were helpful in every way. The hotel itself is in need of some attention. I love older hotels. But with an older building attention to maintenance is even more important. The physical structure needs some attention. (I do have to add that electricians and carpenters... More

I got off the train in Bayeux looking for a D-Day tour and walked to this hotel. They were very helpful finding me a tour guide by calling 4 different places. The rooms are perfect, there is a private bar downstairs with a real fireplace. The breakfast was done up with fresh breads, pastries, hard boiled eggs, meats, bread, pudding,... More

This fall was the third time we stayed at Le Lion, but this is my first review of Le Lion. This time, it was a spontaneous, last minute booking for just one night. Looking at the previously posted guest photos I must note that we have never had problems like those shown in the photos illustrating problems with their rooms.... More

We were referred to this hotel by another hotel owner who was closed so wasn't sure what we would find. Wouldn't have gone anywhere else. It had a lot of charm, the staff was extremely helpful, and very convenient for us to drive to the beaches of Normandy, Omaha, etc. We did not have the chance to eat in their... More

Stayed with family in December - reviews of previous occupants paint a very false picture. Over priced and lacking any charm. May have been exclusive in the sixties, seventies, eighties and nineties - certainly not now. Avoid the hotel! Smells of damp, carpet is worn and coming Apart, especially on stairs. No kettle, cup or anything else to have a... More

The layout of this charmer is unique and each room is different ! We had a suite like room with a charming appeal. The town outside was Medieval and a great spot to hang out in... More
