My boyfriend and I stayed in the Lion D'or over New Years at one of the busiest times in Cauterets and loved it. The hotel is right by the lift up the mountains and is really beautiful. The room was so sweet with lots of lovely features, a really comfy bed and even a coffee machine (essential). It also had... More

Casual yet well appointed hotel in center of Cauterets. Our room was really a suite with a separate shower and toilet also. Huge towels, heated towel rack, nice linens and even a frig and elevator. Last night of the season so a bit cool without heat yet but very nice.

Stay here if in Cauterets to discover (or remember) what small town hotels used to be like, but this one has preserved all the character, style and artefacts, while completely updating the hotel, so it has got the best and latest of everything beneath a veneer of 19th century accommodation - including the most whizzy showers you will find anywhere!...

Despite our arrival at an unreasonably late hour, we were welcomed warmly. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfast is good --- with freshly squeezed orange juice! But what stands out is the warmth of the owners.

Stayed here for 3 nights, and loved it. It is owned and run by a family, who all work hard to ensure that no detail is overlooked.Thomas on reception welcomed us and subsequently seemed to do everything else - serving breakfast, giving advice on walks, tidying rooms etc! Our room was very large and lovely, with two balconies overlooking the... More

Weather cut short our trip in the region but our stay at du Lion d'Or was pretty much the highlight of our time there. Generous breakfast buffet, quaint rooms and friendly host. Best thing is - this place has reliable wifi all over the hotel. Wholeheartedly recommended.

There are some hotels that make you feel very comfortable the moment you walk in the front door and this is one of them. Family run for several generations, the Lion d'Or is tastefully adorned with antique ski equipment and has an authentic alpine atmosphere. But that's not its best attribute. It's the genuine warmth and friendly service offered by... More

The Lion d'Or offered such a warm and friendly atmosphere that we immediately felt at home. It's also a three star hotel whose rooms have four star facilities. We were extremely comfortable, enjoying all the attention to detail not often found in French hotels - tissues in the bathroom, tea making facilities. We certainly appreciated a very well cooked 4-course... More

This was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. The hotel has been owned by the same family since 1915 and has been in business is 1850. Every detail is attended to. The customer service is exceptional and the room was extremely comfortable. i It is right across the street from the Bains de Rocher which itself... More
