We have eaten at The Lion on several occasions in the past, and in fairness it's always been good- until today. We were seated in what can only be described as a black room! It had black walls, dated dining tables and virtually non existent lighting. Apart from being too dark to eat it had an awful 'feel' to the...

Every member of staff we met was wonderful. The bedrooms were a bit disappointing, quite basic with too many things needed attention, bathrooms with mould, lights not working, shower heads not squirting properly. Secondary glazing missing (some rooms face a main road) They were nice and clean though and the beds comfy. Breakfast was really nice. Not cheap but overall...

Visited the hotel today had a lovely "pub lunch". The food was great, excellent value for money. The staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Nice relaxed surroundings. Will definitely visit again. (I really recommend the omelettes)

Stayed here for one night in a king sized room priced at over £100 including breakfast. Firstly the room was not as described, not a king sized bed only two singles. Very disappointing and no available rooms to swap. The room was not adequately cleaned, cobwebs in the corner and a spider in the bathroom. The room was cold and...

We have just stayed in this hotel for one night, we chose this hotel because it also had a restaurant in it. On arrival we were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who booked us in and advised us that we should book a table for the night. The room was very nice and clean. We unpacked and then went down...

Just returned from a two night stay at this Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was very comfortable.
