A very attractive old coaching hotel that has been welcoming travellers for centuries, and yet it is more.It is completely French but a part of world history. It has a down to earth elegance and faded glamour.Bayeux was the first town in France to be liberated during the second World War and everybody who was anybody stayed at the Lion D'Or and loved it. Lauren Bacall, Kennedys, Eisenhower and Tom Hanks to name a few. Our suite was 3rd floor (no lift- That is VERY good exercise) slightly tatty round the edges but clean and comfortable.
Service, when it comes, is efficient and friendly.You may have to wait 10 minutes for your gin and tonic, but when it comes it is huge , and what is 10 minutes in rhe scale of world history.
The restaurant will not set the world on fire, but good enough.
Can't wait to go back.
