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.
We have travelled a good deal with varying degrees of satisfaction, noting with chagrin that properties occasionally embellish their features in the property/amenities descriptions. This property was exactly as described (very nice) and met all of our key priorities: cleanliness, security, quality. The rooms are nicely appointed and are meticulously cleaned, the linens were comfortable, and the area was tranquil. The parking lot was quiet and well lit and the property well-secured. The staff were exceptional and very kind. We didn't try the restaurant as we were touring daily so cannot provide comments with respect to food. We recommend with enthusiasm.

"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.
