Best Western Lion Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed for two nights over the early May bank holiday and it was very pleasant. Breakfast was nicely presented and hot with a good choice. Had our Sunday evening meal there and although it was busy due to staff shortage they were very apologetic and it was well worth the wait. Our room had air conditioning, a bonus as the weather was really hot. Massive bathroom with bath and shower. Will certainly stay there again.

The staff were welcoming and obliging. The evening meal was exceptional as was the breakfast. Lovely clean airy rooms. There is 2 small car parks for the hotel but there is a public car park at the rear if you can't get a space at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel just for the staff and restaurant though the menu is small the food is quality and good value. Room service is the same price as the restaurant. We will be back very soon.

Had family meal on 26th April . Did not make reservation, but were found a table in 15 mins. Whilst there is a good array of burgers and pizzas etc not a large amount of other meals, but more than sufficient to meet most tastes, and overall good value for money with dearest main course at £13.95 , deserts £4.50 or less . The reasonable prices did not deter from service and quality of food. Beware after 9.00pm restricted menu . Good experience , pleasant ambience and good service

Stopped here for one night after a long day on the road. Tricky to find but probably down to my satnav! Its located on the high street with quite a bit of on site parking at the back of the hotel and a large pay and display car park opposite. Room was adequate without being spectacular bit fine for a one night stopover. It was quite big for a single but the bathroom let it down slightly, fan was very noisy and the shower not great. Bar area was busy and showing the football with mix of locals and residents, quite a nice atmosphere. Didn't eat here but the drinks were reasonably priced. Wifi was a bit slow. Breakfast was fine and a nice change to have it made to order rather than the seemingly never ending buffet option. Would stay again if in the area as its reasonably priced and central.

Both my wife and I stayed at The Lion Hotel for our 45th wedding anniversary on a 3 day Groupon offer and we must say our first night was exceptional we found the reception team of Bradley ( Nice bunch ) & Karen to be extremely professional and also most courteous and helpful. We had a meal in Bar 114 on the Friday and the food was EXCEPTIONAL, I had chicken sizzler & Marie had bacon & black pudding pizza & both were very nice & hot. We had booked a table for the Saturday night but after a day out decided to try room service, I had a burger doubled up & Marie a steak sizzler, my burger was very nice however Marie's sizzler was cold and several of the extras we had ordered were mixed up, Marie sent the meal back and ordered a double burger very nice, problem was we got charged for the sent back meal and extras we had not ordered, this was rectified at check out as I had refused to sign the till receipt but it was still sent through for payment. We decided after sleeping on it that we would leave a day early. Have left comments on the Hotel feed back form and emailed Emma direct who apologised and offered us a free upgrade to executive suite. We will see if we use this offer. This in no way reflects on any member of staff but on presentation of in room menu.

The review I thought I’d uploaded last time obviously hadn’t uploaded hence two reviews so close! We stayed here this weekend and had yet again a lovely stay. The staff were friendly and polite and it was great that we got a free upgrade when we checked in. This time we stayed in the Wellbeck Suite (would love to check out other suites lol!) Breakfast was fine but we do prefer the table service rather than the buffet. No noise or disturbance from the wedding going on downstairs. As usual- we will be back x

Overall experience was not good it left a lot to be desired, food offering was average, the comfort of the bed was poor, the shower was low power, the location of the hotel was average and the overall cost was expensive.

As someone who stays at this hotel 2-3 days a week currently, I have to say I find it very good. The rooms generally are spacious and comfortable and the restaurant and bar area is a great place to relax. My only recommendation would be for some spicier dishes on the menu.

Stayed for one night b+b. Lovely hotel, good staff and comfy room. Room was clean and warm. Bed very comfortable and very quiet. Good in room amenities including tea and coffee, big TV and free sky sports. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful with a nice selection of hot and continental breakfast. Keep up the good work guys. Thanks again

Visited the hotel on a Saturday night Big fight night and the atmosphere was lovely. Bar staff were excellent ensuring we received the drinks required. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was of a good standard however was only lukewarm. It’s a shame to moan
