Perfect location, ideally situated in central Bayeux. Surroundings fantastic especially the log fire in the bar. Standard rooms are on the small side but ideal for those that are out exploring for the day. Bathroom and other facilities excellent. Hotel is ideal for exploring Normandy and everything it has to offer, a perfect in a beautiful part of France.

We spent several nights here. The location is great to wander around Bayeaux and there is parking (for a fee) if you reserve in advance. Our rooms were comfortable. However, be aware that there is no elevator which means lots of stairs you are an upper floor as we were and when we checked out the desk clerk yelled at...

Our room was clean, and spacious. We had a lovely view into the courtyard. The restaurant at the hotel was okay but we preferred to eat at local restaurants after the first night. They have a nice bar/lounge with leather chairs and couches and a big fireplace with a fire going in February. The lounge/bar also has several autographed pictures...

Wonderful spot to base for tours of the Normandy beaches. Great staff, excellent food, super convenient. Well kept rooms. Fun to look at the photos in the bar of some very big celebrities that have stayed there including the Kennedys, Prince Charles, Eisenhower, Montgomery, Queen Elizabeth, Tom Hanks, and more.

This hotel is conveniently located on the main street, but with a driveway and off-street parking (if you reserve). They had a sign with my name on it in the driveway where I was supposed to park when I arrived. It amused my friend to no end. The staff was kind and courteous, and out room was ready on arrival....

Loved this hotel - great location, staff delightful and helpful. Breakfast was not cheap but very good. Room was large with a view over the courtyard so nice and quiet. Downside is there in no elevator so taking suitcases up stairs is not a lot of fun.

We loved the history of this hotel. It was charming, clean, and the staff very helpful. Centrally located we stayed in Bayeaux and went to the Normandy beaches and Mont St. Michelle. Their restaurant had wonderful food! Especially good was their house special. We ordered the box lunch one day and it was only so so. We were very pleased...

Am joining a group travelling later this spring staying for some nights at this hotel. I have come from another part of the world and on a totally different itinerary. Hence did I book the room direct through booking.com and my friend asked to cancel the room preliminary booked for me. Oh NO, pas possible! The hotel could not handle...

Hotel was very clean, looks to have been recently renovated. Very much enjoyed our stay at Le Lion d'Or. Nice sheets, bedding and we had a nice breakfast. Very well located to walk to restaurants in the quaint town of Bayeux.
