Stayed here last week for a couple of days. Perfect location. The staff could not have been nicer. Excellent breakfast selection at a reasonable price. Parking area and spots right in front of hotel, again at a very reasonable price. Free Wifi. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Location in town just can't be beat. We really enjoyed our...

We loved the hotel. Perfect location and friendly staff. Our room was delightful! The sitting room downstairs had a really lovely atmosphere. We enjoyed a couple of drinks there in the evening. We would recommend this place to other people.

I booked Le Lion d'Or online after wrestling with going for the two cheaper option sin town, and decided to splash. I was NOT disappointed. This hotel, and its staff, arenothing short of amazing. I booked a superior room, and when I was brought up to it was floored. Cathedral views, spacious, with a bath! I loved staying here so... More

This hotel is a short, pleasant walk away from some major attractions of Bayeux - the Bayeux Tapestry, the Bayeux cathedral and Place de Quebec, a pick up point for a few of the local D-Day tour companies, to name a few. Cafes and shopping opportunities are plentiful near the hotel as well. Bayeux is a delightful town and Le... More

The room was large for the money. Facilities in the room were excellent. The bed, however, was way too firm. It was the least comfortable bed in a three-week trip. Service was variable. The hotel got us into the room early (good) but breakfast service was glacial (bad).

This hotel is in excellent location. In the middle of the town, steps from food, shops and attractions. Very friendly staff and speak reasonable English. The other important reason we chose this hotel is it's history. General Eisenhower stayed here during D day invasion. There are famous people from all over the world had their pictures on the wall of... More

This hotel was very very nice. I enjoyed the fact that it was preserved "in period" as best as it could. We stayed in room #8 which is where Eisenhower chose to stay when he visited over the years. The bar is amazing with all the pictures of heads of State, celebrities, etc that have stayed in the hotel. It... More
