Excellent hotel - good simple food, fantastic wine (although not cheap), great location, accept dogs (which is brilliant) lovely rustic rooms and amazing hosts. My only criticism is that it is expensive for what it is. Perhaps that is just France. Would definitely go back.

On their web site they claim to be in the prettiest village in France. Well it certainly ranks in my top 5. Such a pretty place, on a river with steep river cliffs and the most enormous ruined castle on the top. Medieval houses and lanes, including the relais du Lyon D'Or. Amazing hotel, and when we arrived, late, our table was beautifully laid in the courtyard, with the evening sun shining. Perfect setting. And as a wine agent , the wine was fab. Wished we had stayed for more than 1 night. We stayed as a stop over heading back to Calais, but certainly worth several nights stay. And the best bit : no one seems to know about this place!!!

Stayed: July 2013

Magic village, Magic hotel, very good food, continuous extra mile in attendance. What else can you ask when looking to disconnect yourself from the mundane world and connect with the history, the nature and your human being?

We were only one night but .... the incredible Diane (our contact person when there) brought to our table some brochures and one by one explained/teached us about all the surroundings potential activities we can choose from - while drinking the coffee after having an excellent dinner. Personal concierge service!

After being motivated with all what was ready outside waiting for us we decided to walk around the small town - night time - and as soon she was aware she handled us a flashlight with an advise about the best route to follow. Extra mile again!

About the hotel .... very cozy, very comfortable bed, very good bathroom, very good room....

The day after when we woke up we had a good breakfast and we left....carrying with us the peaceful sensation of having lived a magic moment.

Nothing else. Magic.

Thank You Lyon D'Or, Thank You Angles-sur-Anglin, Thank You Diane

We stayed in 2011 when motorcycling through France so on our return from the south this year we all agreed we had to return. Diana and Dominique are 2 special people who really care. The rooms are comfortable and clean and dinner in their lovely dining room was as before perfect. We needed to leave early the following morning so Dominique agreed to provide breakfast early. Not many small hotels make that effort. Thank you the double D's for making our stay perfect in your hotel in such a pretty village. We will come back again.

Angles sur L'Anglin has to be one of the most picturesque villages in France. It's quite breathtaking and the Relais du Lyon d'Or is just the place to stay. Its full of character surrounding a lovely courtyard in the middle of the village. Very nice room and quality linen. Excellent dinner from an obviously talented chef. Highly recommend.

We first found this hotel in 2002 when we were on our honeymoon and we have been going back ever since, we travel to SW France every year and always use this wonderful hotel on our way down and on our return journey. Diana and Dominique are such wonderful hosts, always welcoming and the food is just wonderful, Diana is an excellent Chef and she never disappoints, her menu is always a treat we very much look forward to. The rooms are always comfortable and clean and a pleasure to stay in, the dining room is a lovely large room and there is also an anti room which you can relax in "on those wet days" with a lovely glass of beer on the leather sofa in front of the fire, they also have a good collection of games in this room. The seating outside on the terrace is wonderful in the summer months and we have often eaten outside under the stars which is just lovely. We have many wonderful memories and have just booked to go back again this year.... we cannot wait.

We have visited this hotel many times and and have always found Diana and Dominque most welcoming and friendly.. Great food by Diana in a beautiful dining room and served by Domingue with warmth and advice about wine. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms so clean and spacious. Breakfast is generous and varied. Our little dog, Evie, is always welcomed and fussed over and gets a special dessert. We love Diana and Dominque for their warm welcome always and the fact we are remembered and made to feel special despite the fact they must see so many people each season. Thank you both, you are wonderful and we miss you.
