We arrived mid day and although check in wad 3pm they happily took our bags and advised where the discount parking was located. A fantastic room. Excellent linen and big fluffy towels. As breakfast was included we went down at 8am. Again great service. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Perfect location for walking sightseers

I had not been in York since attending our rector's consecration as Bishop in 1982, so I made a quick visit en route from Scotland to Salisbury. The Lamb & Lion was a perfect place to stay, giving my time constraints. I could walk the wall, visit the Minster and Shambles and enjoy a good meal. My room looked out...

I really enjoyed my experience in the hotel. It is very clean, friendly and full of history and character. The staff were absolutely marvelous and extremely helpful. The location is superb, right in the centre of the town. Would definitely come back again.

The room was very nice. Good mattress. Good bedding. Lovely breakfast. It is a busy road outside and ear plugs are a good idea. You are in the middle of york so it is in a good position. I would stay again

If looking for a luxurious hotel don't go to the Lamb & Lion; but if you want some good old fashioned comfort and conviviality, one couldn't do better. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It reminded us of long lost days when we would sit and dream (we are both in our mid seventies). We were there on...

We stayed there first just one night on 18th Feb 2017 and we found the staff to be very helpful. The bar was very characteristic and the selection of ales was (for my tastes) perfect. The food looked good and we should've selected there to eat, but we went elsewhere. The room was adequate although quite small, we were in...

very disappointed, the food was nothing special, very basic and didn't look appealing. My son ordered the roast dinner, the Yorkshire pudding looked home made,but the meat looked and tasted like a thin piece of value ready cooked supermarket meat. The veg looked very sorry for themselves, Mine came in the fancy , basket for slim chips and miniature pan...
