Lovely environment and excellent service. Definitely would stay there again. I forgot a package in our taxi and they went above and beyond to retrieve it for me. The breakfast offerings were so great.

I look for 3 basic things in a hotel room- 1) Clean room - check 2) Comfortable bed - check 3) Hot shower - fail We had a recently renovated room on the 3rd floor (2nd floor / etage in the euro system). The bathroom had a tub with a hand held shower - uncomfortable and difficult to use. With... More

Stayed her for 3 nights after choosing it from the Relais de Silence directory. Excellent location in Bayeux, within easy walking distance of all places of interest. Restuarant had been recently refurbished and the food was excellent. We did feel we were slightly frowned upon for choosing the fixed price menu, but why offer it if they did not want... More

We only ate in the restaurant. Entre and meal were good but apricot desert was fabulous; however would probably not eat here again as we had so many excellent meals in France that this one was good but did not shine. Did not stay in the hotel. Service was good.

Yes the rooms and interior are in dire need of refurbishment and renovation but this hotel possesses the historical cachet to overcome that. You're eating and drinking and sleeping in the halls where Eisenhower, Montgomery, Edith Piaf (and seemingly every French celebrity of the 20th century) stayed. Pro tip: the hotel parking is extremely tiny, I watched numerous people having... More

This lovely hotel is tucked down a courtyard and the rooms are clean and adequate. It is well located within walking distance of the Bayeux Tapestry. We booked because of its great cuisine and were not disappointed. Had a delicious dinner here with good service.Usual good breakfast in the morning. Would definetly stay here again.

Le Lion d'Or is a lovely hotel in the center of Bayeux. It is comfortable and clean with a nice hotel restaurant which serves local cuisine at reasonable pricing. It is well situated within easy walking distance of the Bayeux tapestry, cathedral and shops and restaurants. It is a easy close drive to the Normandy D-day beaches. The staff are... More

The photos don't do it justice! Recommended by a friend back home, it was the perfect location for our two night stay in Normandy. The hotel features a private drive from the street with a courtyard surrounded by the restaurant and rooms on three sides. We had a recently renovated and very private room over the covered parking. It was... More

This hotel, located right in town, is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and a good breakfast (not included). The room is spacious with plenty of storage and a beautiful bathroom. The only negative is there is no elevator so we had to walk up 53 stairs to our room. Staff will carry your bags. We totally enjoyed our stay... More

Quiet and comfortable - a good breakfast in the morning - and friendly helpful staff. There is no lift so you need to be reasonably able bodied if your room is on the second floor. We would have liked tea and coffee making facilities in the room, otherwise this is a very recommendable hotel. If you drive to Bayeux I'd... More
