spaceous well appointed room and freindly reception and catering service highly recomended.Baggage cart available Very diificult to find the location as approaching the location by the square the road is shown as a closed end this should be pointed out to motoring guests
The bathroom was wonderful and the shower was very relaxing. This hotel was much better than we thought it would be. would certainly stay here again
This hotel surprised us. It was excellent from start to finish. The room overlooking the square was terrific. The breakfast was the best I've had in a hotel for a long time. The staff, fantastic with good English skills. I recommend this hotel.
The staff were very helpful. A young girl with dark hair on reception Friday evening was great, she suggested a restaurant and it was fab. La vache I think
Hotel as advertised, nothing spectacular but good honest accommodation. Location central to most activities.
The friendliness of staff, we were there much longer than anticipated due to an air traffic control issue, the staff did their utmost on every occassion to help us. The rooms were a better spec than a 3 star I would rate this as more of a 4 star The only criticism is that the outside of the building and balconies are looking tired but once in they are without doubt above standard.
Great all around hotel
The welcoming atmosphere and helpful staff, the large room and terrace overlooking the main square. The bathroom and toilet are in need of modernisation and better lighting
Very good location
position central to the city of Limoges
location bathroom smelt and is in urgent need of redecorating
Staff were extremely helpful when we had a problem with our hire car, looking up tel. Nos, contacting the company and explaining our problem; even providing a spare pillow to raise the seat level so I could see better! Desk staff were always friendly and seemed to remember our name. One evening there was a pet dog in the dining room. It was very well behaved but we did not feel it should have been allowed in the dining room . It was not an assistance/guide dog.
Very nice hotel in a beautiful setting. Value for money.
Very helpful staff 6.5 euro for a beer
To organise Tour de France teams to stay at the same time as my wife and I was appreciated !! The restuarant breakfast was superb but the evening meal ( mixed grill ) was ordinary for such a high price.
Hotel location was convenient to highway. Room was comfortable and clean. A modest hotel at a fair price.
Staff were friendly and the rooms were clean and quite comfortable, although fairly basic. We liked the swimming pool. Didn't like paper cups provided for tea and coffee in rooms. For the amount paid we would have expected china cups. We would have liked proper pillows and more of them, too.
Welcoming Staff, and Hotel catering staff very helpful. Excellent stay
Great location on the way from the south up to Paris. Rooms were updated and decent. Restaurant is lame. Service is pathetic and they served soup in a microwave plastic cup. Although the soup was really good and I wish I could get it at home!
view to the lake. no shuttle airport service. so €60 for taxi (return trip).
Staff were very helpful and pleasant Quiet hotel with very helpful staff
Late check in, friendly personel, good & plenty (value for money) breakfast, got free update to a bigger room for the 2 of us
It was a perfectly adequate place to stay, nothing more, nothing less.
Wi-fi connectivity, Friendly and helpful staff
Its carpark and breakfast The lack of adequate directions to find it.
Could have been better for the many I pay
Near to town We thought it was over-priced - expected it to be more up-market
Very noisy outside
You get what you pay for and this is great value throughout!!! None
simple and clean room the corridors were noisy
Breakfast was good although very simple. Excellent price-quality ratio. There was a bare atmosphere in the room, furniture was reduced.
Friendly staff with good English and town centre location. Happy to help with any queries. Very disappointed that their was no kettle/tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms.
Very helpful staff Room was getting ready for refurbishment. In particular the carpet was badly stained just outside the bathroom door.
Spotlessly clean, breakfast, super hot water, relaxed, easy attitude of staff. Veary important a lock up private garage in a city centre hotel Because I am rarther tall I prefer a longer bed and a longer bath
Need to request a back courtyard to avoid train noise when the windows are open
This is typical old-style french hotel perhaps a little faded around the edges but warm and friendly and ideally located in the city centre.
breakfast poor.Tired feel
Centrally located, ample parking The halls & rooms were too small, the furniture was cheap and the bed was too small. The bathroom was a tiny and poorly lit. There was no room service.
clean hotel and excellent staff. The railway is so close it sounds like the train is coming out of the bath room & there is a bar next door and people are out on the street until 4.0 am in the morning drinking and talking (loud) it is impossible to sleep, in particular we stayed on a very warm night and had to have the windows open to cool the room slightly.
Good position at right rate. Staff good, breakfast excellent
nicely decorated room, convenient location, parking buffet breakfast uninspiring with everything in little industrial packets (although you could boil yourself an egg) coffee bitter, breads not very interesting (but croissants ok).
Brief stop only
Family run hotel - owners were delightfully helpful and genuinely interested to assist with maps and points of interest around town. Room was spotlessly clean and generous breakfast served in charming breakfast room. Location was very handy to rail station - easy walk with luggage. We enjoyed everything about our stay.
The owner was very helpfull and friendly.
The manager/owner of this hotel was very helpful, he arranged garage parking for our motorcycles off the city street. The hotel was well located and comfortable.
Owners were friendly. OK if one spoke French, so OK for us. B/fast a little dear! Happy with initial stay in ywo bedded room. However made booking to return 4 days later for same. However offered one bedded room. had to move elsewhere at additional cost
The help that we received from the staff in booking taxis and restaurants No dislikes
The hotel was clean and tidy in a good location The internet connection was poor and at the time there was no telephone line to the hotels rooms. Not sure if this was just one of those things at the time but it did not help from a business point of view
The staff were really friendly, despite not being able to speak any English. My schoolboy French is disasterously bad, but we persevered, had a laugh and everything went fine. Room was lovely - a nice compact size with a lovely comfortable bed. Shutters blocked out light and ensured a good sleep. The area was very quiet, despite being about 10 mins walk from the centre of town and 4 mins from the railway station. Free WiFi. Breakfast was basic but typically French in nature - croissant, baguette, jam, yoghurt, tea, coffee and chocolate. The lady owner was very keen to ensure that I had had enough when I got up to leave the dining room which was lovely. They looked after my bags for two days - the days before my stay and after.
We had a recently refurbished room which was excellent, and tastefully decorated. The owner was welcoming and helpful - we got lost and phoned and she directed us well and came out to greet us.
Very warm and professional welcome; nice decor (wallpaper tasteful, plants effectively used); personal attention to needs of our children (orange juice instead of coffee); information on where to eat and map given with information on location of restaurants. Excellent customer service and attractive lobby. Ensuite to the room was very small; location was poor without secure parking (car was left parked in road still containing most of our luggage not needed for an overnight stay).
We returned our hire car and caught the train toParis airport
The staff were really welcoming when we checked in and very friendly. The room was lovely and spotless and really well furnished. The location was really good and we didn't hear any trains which we thought we would as it is close to a train station. Would stay again in the family room - lots of space. The only thing that spolit it a bit for us was that the resturant menu was all in French and didn't have any English listings so we didn't know the food choice and the staff didn't speak English so that didn't help.
Very pleasant and helpful reception staff The restaurant is a completely separate business to the hotel, it was impossible to charge the merest drink to our room, nor charge our evening meal. I had the embarrassment of having to go back to our room, to get a credit card to pay the restaurant with. Totally unacceptable in that standard of hotel
Well laid out family room for 5 people, secure parking, good breakfast, easy walk into Limoges centre
central and parking facilities First morning , the shower wasn't working. It was repaired. Two mornings at 9.15am there were no croissants
very central, nice staff, big room The address didn't show up on gps and smoking in the lobby
It was very close to the train station - we arrived late at night and left early the next morning, so it was a perfect place to stay. It was a bit noisy in the morning - the sound of the sncf jingle from the train station is rather penetrating.
It was easy to park a car in the hotel basement.
The convenience of the hotel for our visit to Limoges would take us back there as our next visit will probably be by train, plus friendly staff and an excellent restaurant attached. Temperature control in the rooms could be improved because opening the window can be a noisy alternative
Location, value for money, service re parking. We stayed 2 nights and not 1 as your info below suggests Lack of restaurant staff making it impossible to use despite many empty tables.
Room very clean and had all I needed ... very stylish and tastfully appointed Should have tea/coffee making facilities
The location was excellent...across the street from a large public parking lot (that was free!)But the best part was the very helpful gentleman running the hotel. He wanted to make sure our experience was perfect and recommended a wonderful restaurant.
Very nice hotel, well situated (walking distance from train station), friendly staff. Room was small for two but sharming, giving on the square. Only negative was for the bathroom. 1- for 2 people, we should have 2 bath towels. 2- shelf above sink was broken, stuff kept on falling down the sink.
Location to the train station. Friendly, attentive, helpful owner. Didn't bother us but there are lots of stairs to the upper floors.
Both ourselves and the hotel felt well looked after Poor breakfast. Would be better to offer one really nice croissant than a large selection of poor quality breads.
Convenient to the airport No evening dining facility
It's very near from the Limoges's airport. Very practic if your fly is at 6:30AM Some rooms do not give outdoor as there is a front hallway. It's a bit annoying not being able to open the window without being in the hallway ...
The hotel was quiet and peaceful. The location was was within walking distance of the airport. Suitable for a stopover. There were no coffee making facilities in the room or the hotel except for breakfast time.
Close to the airport the breakfast> No air conditioning
It was on the airport It was extremely noisy during the night, particularly the plumbing. The room was small and cramped and the shower was hand held. A very poor room.
Very close to the airport ideal for the early checkin only about 200 metres walk. Excellent restaurant in the main airport building.
I like the location of the hotel which is right next door is excellent for an overnight stay at Limoges Airport Breakfast was very basic.. But very nice..
They had a nice swimming pool, which was new. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was very nice. Although the hotel is near the airport, it does not disturb you because there are only a few flights with small planes.
Comfortable, clean , good size room, friendly staff. None
Easy access with air travel, accommodation fine but restraurant being closed was a problem after a long days travel. Lack of catering facilities on site when restraurant was advertised.
Helpful lady in charge. Good breakfast. Kindly looked after our luggage for the day.
We were in the centre of the town, had easy access to rail and bus services and taxi to airport. Access to beautifull gardens and interesting walks around town.
Excellent location in Limoges city centre - beautifully decorated and tasteful rooms in this small boutique chic style hotel. Warm friendly and accommodating staff. Nothing bad to say about this hotel
The hotel was clean, quiet, and tastefully decorated. The reception staff were helpful and polite.
close to everything, good price, friendly no
very funny atmosphere / ambiance; especially the decoration.
The room was very well appointed with a new bathroom suite and very original interior design with an international theme. Not really, except that there were only net curtains over the windows which let in the light in the morning.
The convenient location, and the service. The lack of staffing at reception. Let ourselves in, checked ourselves in, found room key and eventuallly found our room. Felt as if we were on the Marie Celeste, until 50 minutes later when the Manager arrived!
Good location. Easy parking. Friendly staff. Well appointed room. Very quiet and relaxing. We had an interior room and it did become very warm, despite the large windo.
I loved the decor and the staff were probably the most attentive that I have come across in my life of staying in hotels and that is a lot of hotels.Breakfast was perfect and I felt really at home. Perfect..... Yes I only stayed one night.
The bedroom was very small and the bed was incredibly hard - very uncomfortable
easy to find good security
It is new and very clean and has a great restaurant.
Clean, quiet,personable staff(multi-lingual)and a useful position. Shopping, dining and Post Office nearby
The staff were really helpful and nice the breakfast eas very good and wide ranging
proximity of parking to the hote Drape did not cover window. Room was tiny. Breakfast was meager. Location was much further from town than claimed.
I liked the layout of the rooms, everything was very practical and most importantly, clean. Although we arrived in good time, one of the reasons that I booked a room at this hotel was because I could arrive at any time and the room vending machine is such a good idea. The receptionist was friendly and informative. My only negative comment is that the hotel is on a very busy road, which was quite noisy from early morning. However, with the window shut and the shutter down, it was barely noticeable. Not sure how it would be if you wanted your window open. The only other thing is the height of the shower holder. It is fairly low, not easy for washing hair!
Easy motorway access for onward journey Only down side no tea making machine in the room
Very convenient location for long distance travellers.
Friendly welcome. Quick check in. Convenient location for the motorway. Room soundproofed. Perfect for an overnight stopover back to Calais. Modern room. Clean. Comfy bed and great duvet! Good air con. Secure car parking. Room very small and general facilities very basic - quite costly for what was provided. No bar or restaurant open so on arriving we could only get a drink from a vending machine. On site bar and restaurant closed up.
One very helpful Receptionist - very quick to print internet maps for locations/directions; easy to find; easy access.
Central location beds nice and firm couldn't reach room with escalator
Convenience for the station and city
Nothing too special, but fine for the price. I had to find a budget hotel, as an insurance company were picking up the bill (I was picking up a broken down vehicle) so if I were to be choosing to visit Limoges, I would be happier shelling out more money for a more impressive stay. But ultimately, that's my personal choice - rather than any particular criticism of the Lion d'Or. Seemed to be lacking a little in atmosphere - although it may have been that there weren't many guests when I was staying.
Good location, helpful staff, good restaurant, ideal for a short breakthis area has lots to offer One negative - why no proper shower facility. It only need a shower curtain and a hook !!!
Good breakfast with friendly service
Room was comfortable and clean. Very good location, only minutes away from the main railway station. TV had no english language channels (CNN or BBC for example). No air conditioning. Buffet breakfast was overpriced but otherwise OK.
the hotel was very old fashioned. the free internet service was a bonus and the central position made it a good base for sight seeing. the toilet and bathroom were very basic.
I liked the helpfulness of the staff and the location of the hotel. The state of the decoration was very poor. It is in serious need of renovation. Once it has been renovated I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
The room smelt very badly of cigarette smoke, even though we requested none smoking. Air conditioning did not work very efficiently and we couldn't have the window open as we were next to a very busy road.
The receptionist/bar maid/ waitress and everything else was a very helpful and pleasant lady Everything else! Shower fitting broken, soap dispensers broken etc...
Enjoyed stay nice hotel
The staff were very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good value at 7euros. Bed was not comfortable. Bathroom needs a shower curtain and shower head holder.
we were locked in overnight and not told how to get out in the event of fire or if we returned late how to get in
easy access to city and attractions
i liked the fact that the hotel was near the motorway as we were on our way through to calais. restaurant was good.the staff were exceptionally helpful and they helped us book a vets appointment for the UK pets passport scheme the room was pretty poor standard of decoration. the bed was horrible and uncomfortable.
Good Hotel Yes,we missed a refrigerator or Mini Bar on our room
Breakfast was good and staff were nice. Rooms need seriously refurbishing. Stayed in better tents. This hotel was probably ok in 1970 but needs some major cash injection now to bring it up to date. Not really a three star anymore.
Friendly staff. Good reception upon arrival. Good breakfast. Good location for someone traveling through or require a relatively low-priced accommodation. Quiet area with good restaurant next door. By the way, the service provided at the restaurant was excellent. Very worndown room (stayed in a familyroom with several shortcomings). Desperately needs refurbishment.
nice breakfast, clean beds. room was clean but very old fasionate, dark.
wonderfull lower rate of breakfast
Well laid out and well located for Limoges Central. Comfortable room and excellent staff. Not much to dislike.
Very helpful staff. Excellent location for exploring the town.
Very close to the city centre. Also, have a secured parking space, although the number of spaces is limited. Toilet space was extremely limited.
very friendly, helpful staff. Rooms exceptionally clean and new looking
Close to restaurants, clean and well presented. Overall enjoyable stay Lack of air conditioning
lovely room and very reasonably priced-very close to the train station.
very friendly personnel, very good coffee at breakfast One little issue: our non-smoking room had definitely been smoked in. But that can of course have been caused by abuse by a former guest, or maybe it was older smell, dating from before smoking was stopped in this room.
Friendly staff secure parking
Friendly staff, very clean rooms, good location. Ideal hotel for short stay in Limoges. Room looked as though it had recently been refurbished and felt new although the hotel itself was an older building. The room had very good bathroom/shower facilities. No airconditioning in the room.
Accomodationg staff and location.
Excellent buffet breakfast, clean fresh rooms, very friendly service, good lounge if needed
The hotel room was very basic, but the restaurant was excellent and the staff was great. Also, we appreciated the setting and the quiet for sleeping. We were well located for going into Poitiers for sightseeing without being right downtown. There was free parling for our rental car. It was a money-saving stop for us. The cob web in our room and the only soap provided was in a dispenser on the wall farthest away from the shower. Fortunately we had brought soap from another hotel. Also, there was no hair dryer.
Easy access to major routes and Limoges city centre. Pleasant surroundings overlooking golf course, made a good base for exploring Limousin region. With the exception of one staff member on reception the staff were not very friendly and seemed indifferent to our needs. Rooms could also have been cleaner.
The outlook while having a drink was lovely and serene. You could hear people in other rooms.
Location was easy to find and pleasant. Slow staff response, not awful, just not good.
Peaceful, quiet location. No traffic noise. Helpful staff despite not speaking English. Bathrooms need updating.
The rooms were very accessible, all being on the ground floor and the setting for the restaurant was very nice. The staff were not very attentive especially at dinner time.
Patio door onto ground floor grass area for dog. manager very nice and provided a map for a lovely walk along the river before dinner No tea or coffee facilities in the room Hotel hard to find as sat nav did not recognize knew roads in the area
the setting is superb but the restauirant is closed sundays and there are no facilities in the room or at reception on a sunday Very low level of room quality plus we were locked in a wing of the hotel as the reception is closed at night and we had an emergency exit onto the parking for our entrance They even turned off the wifi when the recption was emptied Bit like being in prison
The immediate location is superb and the reception staff remarkably helpful. No.
the helpfulness of the staff at the desk the smallness of the rooms
Carpet was very dirty and the room was very tired looking. There was no ventilation in the bathroom and there was a lot of mold on the walls and ceiling. The only form of air conditioning in the bedroom was to open a window. It had a small heater which when on you could smell burning.
Handy for motorway, yet quiet location and comfortable bed. Good restaurant and pleasant, helpful staff.
