Our room had recently been renovated. The room looked nice and inviting and the bed was comfortable. The two things we had concerns with are (1) the walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors, and (2) the new hardware shower fixture did not work properly which made it nearly impossible to regulate the water temperature--either scalding hot or bone-chilling cold. The front desk staff responded immediately to our call for assistance; however, it was to no avail. Our guess is the part is defective and needs to be replaced, not just in our room, but in others too as our next door neighbor said they had experienced the same issue with theirs, only that they were able to get the temperature a bearable degree to shower.
From the moment we arrived, Le Lion D'or staff was professional, courteous, and made us feel welcome, and the food and spirits at dinner were exceptional. Breakfast was also a very well done. The hotel was within a 5-minute walk to our drop off/pick up point for a 2-day tour of Normandy with OverLordTour Agency, which is great during times of inclement weather and when you're tired.
