We stayed three nights at the Lion when we planned a trip to Hidcote and Kifsgate one day and Highgrove another so a great central base. Extremely welcoming friendly staff- tasteful,comfortable ,clean rooms decor gorgeous! The food was excellent at breakfast and dinner! Very well looked after by all the staff and will definately recommend! Will be back-thank you!

We stayed two nights at The Lion when we walked the Cotswold Way. We were met with great hospitality and the food was very good. The place is interesting with many old things both in the restaurant and bar and in the room. But the room itself was very small. The bathroom was fine and well-equipped. Good atmosphere in the...

Entering this superbly located traditional Inn gives the impression that it is a pub with a few rooms. It is much more than this. The cool professionalism of the staff was immediately apparent when a problem with our room booking emerged. It was quickly resolved, and I was provided with a beautifully decorated room, that included fresh flowers. Entering the... More

We stayed at The Lion for 3 nights to take part in the Winchcombe Walking Festival. We had to book early as past experience showed that most town centre accomodation gets booked up early. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and there is no TV! Some people might see this as a negative but it was lovely to feel... More

We recently visited this hotel as part of a wedding party. The room cost £160. There is no doubting that the room is finished to the highest quality, it is just such a shame the service does not match this. We were woken at 7.15am with hoovering (on a Sunday morning). The shower cubicle floods and the water pump is... More

Everything perfect but one big issue. You cant fault the ambience decor, food and service and prices. It all adds up to a country pub that wouldnt be out of place in Home and Interiors magazine. Understated shabby boho details spotlessly clean. However im not sure id stay over night again. The rooms are faultless as stated, however as its... More

If it's the last thing you ever do, go to The Lion Inn in Winchcombe. I could not fault it in any way. Superb pub, food, staff and accommodation. Winchcombe is such a lovely place too. Next time we go (we're definitely going back) we'll be trying the Michelin starred restaurant in the town. A walk up to Sudeley Castle... More

The Lion was fully refurbished in 2011, according to notes in our room, and the decor was modern, stylish and clean. Bed very comfy, and Bramley toiletries a surprising plus. Free tea, coffee & hot chocolate is provided at request - much better than a tiny kettle in the room! As advertised, no TV in the room we stayed in,... More

Felt the need to write a review as they really did go above and beyond. First of all this is a lovely looking hotel/restaruant. We had room 4 which was really spacious and well decorated. The bathroom particularly excellent. As another review said a little noisey around 10.30-11.30pm/in morning as its above the kitchen but wasnt bad. Also had a... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our wedding anniversary and booked into the Lion Inn both for the weekend and to try the dinner menu. For the accommodation, this is a lovely little gem. The Inn is located in a beautiful part of the English countryside and has many other wonderful little country pubs surrounding it for a drink or... More
