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!

Typical European non-chain hotel. Location in Bayeux is excellent. Easy to walk to local restaurants and tour the town. Charged for parking but it is in a private courtyard. Room was plain but comfortable. Bathroom a bit small, but clean. Toilet separate from shower sink was kind of strange

We spent one night in this Hotel, on arrival I asked if it was possible to park in the forecourt and was told it was no problem. The check in staff were most helpful and polite. Our room was rather tired with grubby marks on the walls and around the light switches. The bathroom was great, obviously recently refurbished. On... More

The hotel was very comfortable, quiet and clean, and the staff was helpful. Great sitting room, with fireplace, and photos of all the famous people, from them Gen Eisenhower to various movie stars working in Dday films, who have stayed there.

We were in Bayeux at a very quiet time-so the hotel was very quiet. We were happy with the staff and the hotel in general- we slept great and we were happy with the location of the hotel in the cute little town of Bayeux which is close to all that Bayeux has to offer but also a great starting...

I picked this hotel on line due to the lovely town of Bayeux and its proximity to the D-day beaches and we were not disappointed. We stayed in room 14 which was large by European standards. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good and served early. My only complaint was that there was not much water pressure in the... More
