This hotel is the perfect place for a couple getaway. Service is very good and staff very nice. There are a few very nice restaurants around, the village is very cosy and charming. The spa is much nicer during the summer time when you can enjoy the outside part of the pool. During winter it gets a little crowded and... More

We stayed for one night in August, the room was fine, staff very helpful and the meal was truly excellent. When we thanked the Chef he said that he was aiming for a Michelin star. He deserves it! We had local wild mushrooms, turbot, a delicious strawberry desert and 3 Normandy cheeses. The wine list is excellent apart from the... More

We actually stayed in in Les Lions de Beauclere, and dined at Hotel le Grand Cerf, all part of the La Licorne operations. All are close by in the same street. We thought that the village of Lyons la Foret, the hotel and the restaurant were all excellent. The meal at Grand Cerf was one of the best we've had... More

We booked this for an overnight stay- Reception was unfriendly - The room had many faults eg plug in bath didn't work and having forced it to work the water pressure was so low it took several minutes to half run the bath- There was an electric plug 300mm from the basin taps ( illegal?) The loo door left just... More

We spent one night at the Licorne and I must admit that it was lovely. It's a stylish and romantic little hotel in a small village, litteraly in the middle of nowhere. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant was really good. The size of the room was ok (considering the fact that it's a real old building), but... More

La Licorne, together with Le Grand Cerf, is a stylish little hotel in the picturesque village of Lyons-La-Foret. Note, howver, that the place is in the middle of nowhere, with motorways far away and it takes quite a while to get there, even 50 minutes from "nearby" Rouen. The hotel is lovely, staff were very helpful and the Spa is... More

Decorator room with bathtub in room is decorator kitsch and really not practical. No way to bath without leaving room quite wet and humid. New decoration forgot hall and stairways so you feel like a two-character hotel. Even though we had reserved well in advance and asked for table in main restaurant, there was none left and we had to... More

We had booked this hotel as it had a diasbled access room. It was more like a dungeon. Dark grey walls, small, high, barred windows, which were impossible for a wheelchair user to open. The thick gravel would make it impossible for any wheelchair user to access other parts of the hotel independently. The mirror above the basin was too... More

We stayed for one night at the Grand Cerf part of the Licorne hotel (although formally set up as separate hotels, the Grand Cerf which is the slightly cheaper wing is really part of the same hotel and effectively an annex as it has no separate reception). The rooms were comfortably furnished albeit slightly small and with very thin walls.... More

We stayed here in the summer of 2011 and thought we'd stay here again over New Year on our way back home to UK from Disney. In the summer we had liked the location of the hotel, the restaurant, and the room. We were served breakfast by a very rude young blonde lady in the summer and complained when we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel La Licorne, whose construction date back to 1610, has twenty delightful rooms around his sculptural staircase. Its complete renovation was undertaken in 2007 with the famous house decoration Flamant, the rooms being redone enjoying harmoniously combined with contemporary charm the historical aspect. A suite for the disabled has also been designed. Much attention has been paid to the well being of guests - a holiday in the Licorne is a source of tranquility and comfort. La Licorne is also equipped with four comfortable suites. All rooms have a view either charming historic Lyons Hall or on the patio of the hotel, and always in the background forest. Christophe Poirier, talented young chef, went through the most prestigious restaurants. It is a culinary soul he has instilled in these places, and professionals do not make a mistake in awarding him the quality of young talent Gault et Millau 2009. ... more   less
