We normally stay prior to catching the Ouistreham (Caen)/ Portsmouth ferry. This year we stayed for two nights and had a good tour around the D.Day battlefields. The Le Saint Georges survived the onslaught,it is traditional French chateau style,with character,(don't expect modern Ibis style) . Our room was spotless with ensuite, very comfortable bed, wifi etc, with a beautiful view of Sword beach. Lovely garden to the rear with parking. The restaurant is a beautiful area and the food is fabulous with excellent staff.
On arrival the staff were very busy with a lunchtime service but we were checked in quickly and efficiently. The hotel is actually about 300yds from the main restaurant where you check in, so if you have a disability bear this in mind when booking.
The rooms were lovely and had a small balcony and an upstairs with a second double bed! This was not clear on booking which was a little frustrating as it would have meant we only needed to book the one room instead of two. They were both clean and well decorated and the bed was VERY comfortable.
We will definitely use this hotel again!
WE ARRIVED LATE FROM OUR FERRY, ABOUT 2015. WE WERE MET BY A VERY CHARMING LADY WHO WAS RELAXED AND QUITE OK ABOUT THE TIME. SHE TOOK US DIRECTLY TO OUR ROOM, ASKED OF THERE WAS ANYTHING WE NEEDED AND LEFT US FOR THE NIGHT.
WE SLEPT WELL. THE FOLLOWING MORNING, THE BREAKFAST WAS EXCELLENT, PLENTY OF COFFEE AND FRESH FOOD. THE LOCATION WAS IDEAL AND VERY QUIET.

Lovely view over the marina from our balcony. we travelled with two children aged 9 and 12 who loved the indoor pool. (Outdoor closed until May). our two story apartment for six was comfortable and spacious for a family of four, but could have slept a couple more on the sofa bed in living room. we ate at one of the two bistros on the marina, a few metres from the front door, very reasonable and delicious food. 5 mins over the estuary bridge to beautiful long beach and promenade which leads to smart Cabourg. Very quiet out of season but still enough buzz from local restaurants. All in all, perfect base for the many local attractions of Normandy. Our children enjoyed the Bayeaux Tapestry. modern, very practical, perfectly clean and great value for money. great for families; all restaurants very family friendly. Great mini golf on the beach!

Nice little home away from home walking distance to Juno Beach. Owner and staff helpful and pleasant. Best shower in there too. The town is quiet pleasant and friendly. I love Normandy and this is a beautiful area. I would come back for sure.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It used to be a residence and became a hotel 26 years ago. The staff was attentive and efficient. The room was spacious and had everything you could want. Comfy bed and a nice sized bathroom. We slept with the windows wide open and had the fresh air steaming in. It was so quiet! The breakfast was superb. They had everything you could want and it was delicious. I would definitely return to this hotel.
"Hotêl de Lion-sur-mer is a very clean, safe hotel."
The woman who runs the hotel is a little abrupt, but she is doing this all by herself from what I could see. She does have help with cleaning the rooms, and I actually saw the bedspreads and comforters being removed for cleaning. The towels are thick and clean. The windows work well, and the rooms looks like they have been renovated recently. Kiddy-corner across the street is a great pizza place to eat that serves wonderful salads, crepes, galettes.

Hotel and grounds are lovely. It's only a few minutes walk from town and the sea. Breakfast was delicious and generous. Yes, they are renovating but it caused no difficulty for us. Great parking on site and chairs about the grounds to sit and enjoy the views.

We finally found the hotel after the TomTom sent us on a wild goose chase. We parked, found the key at reception and were impressed at the standard of the apartment. The only downside was no mugs or kettle for tea and no proper bedding for the futon in the living room but we made use of what was available.
