Le Lion d'Or
Ranked #6 of 21 Hotels in Bayeux
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Had a lovely stay at this hotel recommended by the local tourist office in Bayeux. The town presents a great light show at night and there are plenty of local street cafes in the area. You can also find free parking on one of the many side streets. The hotel has a nice restaurant and a beautiful courtyard for relaxing after a meal.

We stayed for two days at Le Lion d'Or as our home base for the Normandy coastline. We stayed in the family suite and the accomodations were average. The location is perfect close to the main street in town and the Bayeux tapestry museum. We were a little disappointed to pay for parking in the lot but it also provided peace of mind to know that the front gate was locked at 11 pm each. The staff was helpful each time we approached them for various items (another roll of toilet paper when there wasn't enough to get us through the night, more towels required for 3 people staying in the room, directions to the beaches, etc). We went into this understanding knowing we were not staying at the Four Seasons so again, the accomodations met our need and from what I understand were considered similar to what various friends had shared about their accomodations. Experience Normandy and enjoy!

For options in Bayuex, this Hotel is great. Great location right in the heart of the main street, short walking distance to main city sites and train station. There is no elevator which isn't an issue for me, however some might need it. The room was nice, clean, good view of the courtyard. No a/c which also wasn't an issue we stayed in early May weather was in the 60's August might be different. The "king" bed was just two twins pushed together. The breakfast was a bit over priced for what was offered. Staff was friendly and spoke English which was helpful. Overall I would stay again.

Room Tip: ask for a courtyard room

Excellent rooms; excellent service; excellent restauration. Very convenient for seeing the town. I will go there again, as would our friends. Bayeux is a very interesting, historical town and everything is within easy walking distance.

This small hotel is in a brilliant location for a short stop off in Bayeux. The rooms are small, basic and clean. However ... the bar which looks charming and welcoming in photos was in fact unmanned, unopened and far from cosy. Our room rate did not include breakfast and when compared with other accommodation during our trip to Normandy, I feel it was over priced. be warned - we were given 3 rooms on the top floor and there is no elevator neither was there an offer to carry our luggage. I would not recommend this hotel - when waking round town there were others that had greater charm!

Room Tip: aim for the ground floor!

Within walking distance from train station. Small quaint rooms - small continental breakfast, or pay a lot for hot breakfast. Quiet room, clean, small, wifi. No elevators, but staff carries luggage up to room.
Bayeux is not a very big town, so hotel is within walking distance of many cafés, Stores, mini market, etc.
Best part was taking tour of Normandy American Military Cemetery, Omaha and Utah beaches, and WW2 historical sites. Get a tour guide for sure. we recommend Katell, who is outstanding!!,

Old quaint hotel situated in the middle of town was great. The staff was pleasant and accomodating always and the morning buffet was really quite plentiful and delicious. The roomwe got on the 2nd floor did nothave much of a view,.'just the top of some building. However, the bath was large and newly remodeled. The room was clean and nicely decorated. No complaints!!
.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard. Also, be prepare to climb stairs since there is no elevator.
