My colleague journalist and I were making a story about the landing of Normandy when we landed in Le Lion d'Or. Even though the room and dinner were slightly overpriced, we enjoyed the warm welcome and a fairly good meal. After dinner we went out for a stroll in the village. Before leaving, the night porter ensured us that we could re-enter the hotel just by ringing the bell. He would let us in. When we returned, the gate of the hotel was locked (2 chains) and nobody answered the bell (we rang the bell more than an hour). We were locked out at night, our belongings were inside. The next morning we confronted the night porter and his superior. The porter lied right in our face and in the face of his superior (he said he thought we were already in, but we had our key with us and that 's still no reason for not answering the doorbell) This is not a bad hotel, but one sick person like this porter ruins its entire reputation. Fire the man!
