A very nice Renaissance "hunting pavillon" right in the middle of a deep forest. A calm and cosy place to rest. Rooms are rather noisy as the structure is old and poorly insulated. This is not really acceptable in such a pricely hotel.
The hotel in in a superb countryside seting, large bedroom and great atmosphere. Quiet setting
Comfortable large room, lovely grounds Rather formal, food quite expensive, reception not particularly welcoming
I liked the country setting and walks and the relaxed atmosphere around the swimming pool. The free bikes were in a terrible condition and unroad worthy. The gourmet food was let down by a very poorly prepared main course (lamb).
The staff was very friendly in accomodating us and the petite mason was perfect for my brother and I. No
The standard room we booked was extremely nice - with bed and breakfast for £100 a couple very good value. Room was a good size with a large comfortable double bed, and all very clean. The bathroom was also very clean a good size, with marble effect finish. The breakfast provided a good choice with bread etc... refreshed during service to ensure it was fresh. The staff were very helpful and friendly although they had limited command of English which for us added to the charm. The swimming pool although not big was clean and ample for it's purpose. A refreshing treat. I can't fault the hotel location or the welcome or cleanliness. I would not hesitate to recommend it. The evening meal we had was a little pricy (started at 25 euro's for a two course meal up to about 50 euro's per person, 16 euro's for a cheap bottle on wine ranging to very expensive). That said we couldn't fault the food it's self and service (which was Cordon Bleu style incl half pigeon, sole etc...). To eat elsewhere would mean a short drive.
Staff amiable and helpful. beautiful hunting lodge. nice food, good breakfast with great coffee! Bedroom sombre needs more lighting. surprised not one vegetarian dish on the menu.
The restaurant was superb. The best food we had in Normandy, which says a lot because we had a lot of good food. Parts of the room had not been dusted in quite a while.
Extremely peaceful place, friendly host
The great experience of a quiet surrounding, perfect location, very tasteful and comfortable accomodation and above all a nice and very hospitable couple who ownes this beautiful place.
This is an ideal location to explore the Lower Normandy by car. The premises are service buildings adjacent to the traditional French manor house, in the countryside. The place is very quiet. At the same time, the city of Falaise is just 2 minutes by car. The owners are friendly. The room was the biggest dissapointment. No, the room as such was nice, but Luxury Suite for 4 persons came out to be a spacious double room with one extra portable bed and only hypothetical possibility to add the fourth person (we were lucky - we were actually three). Also, the hotel is very new and the owners, may be, are unexperienced, so some minor things are not taken care about.
The rooms are first class, the hoists are very helpful and friendly. A very pleasant stay, lovely quite surroudings. nothing all was fab.
Easy to find No facilities for getting a drink , bar never open , restaurant never open , no vending machine , no tea or coffee facilities in the room !
No food, no staff after 6pm, wrong codes on booking forms for door entry, very very frustrating after 7hr drive.
Clean bedding, friendly staff
None Automated check in procedure failed. Telephone contact to remote location necessary to obtain entry details. Restaurant closed on arrival at 2000hours. No breakfast facilities at any time.
Very good food. The staff were very attentive and the parking was good.
The room was uncomfortable, basic and quite shabbily furnished. There were no facilities either in the room or at the hotel so we were unable to get anything to eat or drink from our arrival until the following breakfast. There was no staff on duty after 5.00pm so the hotel was noisy with people wandering the corridors banging doors etc until early hours of the morning. The breakfast provided was of a poor standard and overpriced at 7 euros
quiet at night,no noise,good location for touring local area. arrived saturday night,bar was closed at 7p.m when we arrived,didn't open sunday night,no breakfat sunday morning.
Staff extremeley helpful, made welcome and sorted ou the extra bed we required Family rooms do not anticipate 3 children - the family suite was very hard to fit the roll-awa bed into
Ecouche is a lovely rural little town with an interesting history. The food in the hotel should be Michelin starred because it is exquisite. I would recommend the hotel to anyone.
The room was spacious and very comfortable and the staff extremely friendly.
We booked the double room special offer for 1 night.The initial room offered was rather small however the receptionist offered us a larger room which was fine. the staff were friendly and the room was clean.
The staff was very helpful and attentive. The food was excellent. We were not told the hotel was being remodeled. The entire first floor was gutted. There was a very strong odor of paint in our room. It was making my companion sick so we had to leave. A major pain, and delayed our business appointments.
Excellent food - outside on th terrace, very quiet, a really nice room with both bath and shower.
Charming hotel with perfect service. Excellent value for money. Very good dinner. Nothing
The Lion D'Or is clearly a work in progress with the major renovations currently taking place, which were noted on the website. The service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is very attractively set out and demonstrates the aspirations of the young couple. The menus were creative and the food beautifully presented. Our room had an obvious musty damp smell and the table lamps really need to be adjacent to the bed.
Spoke english, clean, tidy, welcoming We asked for a bed for a 4 year old and got a cot... so I slept on the floor.
The hotel was superbly placed for the ferry at Ouistreham and easy to reach off the motorway. The food was excellent and everything very clean. The village, historically , was very interesting and well signposted with information. All in all the ideal spot for us. We aim to use it regularly on our frequent trips. Nothing serious but I would like to have found someone in reception on my arrival. However, I know it is a small hotel and the staff work very hard. When the staff were around, they were extremely kind and helpful.
Rooms were clean and comfortable and staff friendly and welcoming It was a shame that neither the restaurant nor bar were open on Sunday evening
We picked this hotel because it could accomodate an extra bed for our daughter in the room. In actual fact we got a separate adjoining room which contained a sofa bed and sink, which was reasonable value for €75 although the furniture was a bit old and grubby. Our room also had a balcony overlooking the garden (the others don't), which had a swing that our 4-year old daughter enjoyed playing on. The hotel is very dated & needs a good clean and re-decorate. I read in the description it had recently been renovated - maybe the public areas have but the rooms themselves are shabby. The location is also pretty bad - right on a busy main road in the middle of nowhere, no facilities nearby at all. We were very disappointed on arrival. The town of Falaise (30 mins away) has better places to stay.
Restaurant was good, the quality of the room was good. Could not check in until 6:00pm on the Saturday even though on the booking form it said from midday. Had to wait until someone arrived to check out by 8:30.
Excellent restaurant Rooms were a bit scruffy
Catherine & Plillipe were superb hosts, really looked after us, and have made the rooms very stylish and comfortable There was nothing to dislike
The hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful and in particlar helped in finding a good countryside walk to do nearby. The hotel restaurant is very pricey. For example a starter of a few slices of smoked ham was €14!
Very individual hotel - an old building, well converted to hotel use. Excelent, very individual breakfasts (no cereals!) with bread, croissants, goats cheese and dozens of different home-made jams.
The hotel was a perfect stop over on our way to Bordeaux. We were arrived very late, but the staff were very accommodating, making sure we could get into the room outside of check-in times. The room ewas very comfortable and the location very peaceful.
Very nice people working in there, good position in the nature Be careful, the name on the sign on the road is different! However, it's the only big yellow sign on the way out of Vimoutiers
Beautiful setting, very warm welcome. Excellent service, very accomadating. Rooms are very dated and although we had hot water in the shower, we couldnt run a bath. A light fitting fell on us in the morning!
Comfortable bed - if rather small for a modern double - and with nice clean, fresh sheets. Surroundings are wonderful, if only they hadn't been let go to rack and ruin. (See below). Nice staff: we felt rather sorry for them, clearly working under difficulties eg receptionist in the morning also had to make breakfast as requested as well as take money. They were positive about the coming improvements and obviously liked their new boss, who had good ideas to make the place more comfortable and attractive. The whole place oozed neglect: we understand a substantial building and overhaul is scheduled for this winter, but really the rooms (ours, anyway) are so shabby: wallpaper peeling from walls; dated furnishings; scruffy-looking bedcovers; a bath that fills in dribbles from a clearly blocked system; inadequate hot water supply. Coffee provided in rooms but you had to go to the corridor to a communal kettle if you wanted to use it! We decided it was adequate for our purposes - one night stopover - so definitely not worth a complaint, though when I made a mild comment about the age of the room, was told 'nothing else available' though the hotel was clearly largely empty!
