We were pleased with this hotel for the value provided. Our room was quaint, clean and tidy. The staff was very helpful, and we enjoyed a particularly funny young man who also was also our cocktail waiter in the library. Speaking of the library, it's a great place to enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail and we also had... More

We had a marvelous stay as home base for our tour of the Normandy battlefields and Mt. St. Michel. Our room opened directly off the inner courtyard which only added to the pleasure within.....it was a large, modern comfortable room with huge bathroom, a cozy bed with pillows to sink into and big windows that opened onto the courtyard....... the...

What I liked best about this hotel was how nice the staff were. But it's also in a nice area of Bayeux central, with restaurants and shops all around. The room for me and my three boys was large, charming, and affordable. The breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast--lots of good breads and meats, but best of all was you... More

The hotel is quaint, very clean and tidy. Comfortable bed. Very friendly helpful staff. It is situated right in the middle of the old part of town, walking distance to Bayeux tapistry and well positioned for touring all the beaches. The food was very good and plentiful. We will be coming back again.

This hotel was recommended to us by neighbors who stayed there a couple of years and ago - and we simply wanted to add our rating to it. We own two Boutique Hotels and know the value of continue to give recommendations.

I chose this hotel based on the trip advisor reviews alone and I was not disappointed. The hotel is historic and feels very FRENCH so know you're not getting the trendy/chain resort here. The front desk service was really wonderful and helpful when finding our way around Bayeux. The locks were a bit sticky with the door and the floors... More

The hotel was located in the center of the historic district, close to the tourist information office as well as restaurants and bakeries. The staff was helpful and the room was spacious and clean. Parking was available at the hotel for an additional 9 euros. The staff was helpful. For the price it was a good value.

The hotel restaurant of the Lion d'Or is an experience which shouldn't be missed if you're travelling around Calvados. The menu is very sophisticated, the food is top quality and the portions are generous. We had the scallops as a first course, the veal as a main and the millefeuille for dessert. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. The veal... More

Very centrally located hotel. Quiet and with charm and a touch of WW2 history. Nice, plain rooms and a good breakfast buffet is all you need before exploring Bayeux. The old town is at your door step!
