My mother and I stayed at the Lion d'Or this week for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed 10 more!! The location is lovely and close to the train station and the town center. Our room was well appointed and cozy, with the window opening up to the view of the courtyard/ parking area. There were lovely flowerboxes in the windows and we even had a rainbow one afternoon!! The Wi-Fi kept going in and out (was spotty) but seriously, if you are here for a vacation you can live without the internet for a few days anyway (I hope). I was still able to send/recieve messages to my family back in the states so it wasn't completely non responsive.
Please be aware there is NO ELEVATOR. This was hard for my mom but not a deal breaker. However, if you are someone that has a problem with stair climbing, you may want to keep looking. The service we recieved here was top notch. Every person we met had a smile on their face and greeted us very warmly. What a lovely place to stay and I would be happy to stay there again and again.

Room Tip: We were in room 29 and had a great view and a large hallway in which to leave our baggage.

We were two families in 4 rooms staying for two nights in early July. The property gives you that French country charm feel with all the rooms having a bit of a different layout and décor. We did not eat in the hotel and the look and feel of the dining room really didn't do much for us and the menu prices were on the very high end of Bayeux. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with good English. The best part of this hotel, aside from its rich history, is its location at the end of the pedestrian are of downtown. There are lots of places to eat and shop within a very short walk. You are also located an easy walk from the train station if you choose.

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. To be fair we didn't take full advantage of the facilities so can't comment on the food or service on that side of things. The room was fine but didn't have a very nice outlook. Everything worked ok though. The hotel bar should be a nice place to spend an hour, as it is decked out with pictures of film stars and celebrities who have stayed there over the years, but strangely it isn't as there is no permanent member of staff on duty. It's all a bit sterile. Parking is available but is quite expensive and should really be booked in advance. We were charged the same for our motorbike as a car but to be fair they parked us up in a full car space. I would think if two or three bikers were travelling together there would be no reason why they couldn't share a space and save money that way. The hotel location is pretty much perfect. The town itself is fascinating and I can't understand why I have never visited it before despite going to France plenty of times over the last 25 years. It's unusual in this area to find a town like this that wasn't flattened following the D day landings. Apparently it was the first town to be liberated without suffering massive damage. I believe that was due to the German officer in charge refusing to follow direct orders so big respect to him!! Thanks to him there are loads of places to see, eat in and drink in. Highly recommended and we will be going back to see everything we didn't on this visit.

Our stay of two nights was just what we hoped for. The rooms are clean, the bed was comfortable, and quiet, what more do you need? The hotel is in a great location in this scenic little town. There are interesting pictures in the lobby and bar. One of the best breakfast of any hotel so far, from fresh juice to fresh eggs and breads and pastries, meats and cheese. The best stewed prunes, ever, if you like that sort of thing.

We recently stayed at Le Lion d'Or for two nights. We chose Bayeux for its proximity to the D-Day Beaches, and we loved the town. We had reserved parking at the hotel for our car, and when we arrived we were happy to find the space was easily seen with our name clearly marked. The owners were very accommodating and helpful; couldn't have been nicer. That being said, the hotel itself is tired and in need of updating. There is a musty smell throughout, especially in the hallways. The sheets and towels are old and frayed, but they are clean. The bed was very comfortable and we had no issues with noise. There is a comfortable bar in the hotel which would be lovely to relax in, but it was not staffed either night we were there - the man at the front desk had to leave the desk to come and help us with our drinks. As others have mentioned, WiFi was spotty at best, and there are no elevators. Be prepared to carry your luggage up the stairs to your room! Of the five hotels we stayed at during our vacation, this one ranks at the bottom of the list - but with some updates it has the potential to be terrific.
