had a wonderful stay at White Lion a couple of weeks ago. Beautiful old building tastefully decorated in a modern style without loosing any of the cosiness. Our room was a little small but well appointed, good facilities, range of toiletries & beverages. Comfy bed & fluffy towels. Wonderful to be able to lie on bed & watch the changing... More

We went for lunch last Friday and had 3 scrumptious courses each with wine. All of our meals were delicious, well presented and good value for money. Sitting next to the window with a lovely sea view was just great and the waitresses are just so polite and helpful, efficient and friendly. We have come to the conclusion that this... More

My friend and I visited for a much needed R and R break which we booked on line. We stayed in room 12 overlooking the sea. The welcome we received was a really warm and friendly one and we found that all the staff treated us in the same warm manner. The twin room was excellent, warm and inviting. The... More

This was our return visit to this hotel and booked on line. We were allocated room 2 which was at the back as requested and the room was OK. The bathroom was no more than a cupboard with a high window and no shells for holding toiletries When we retired and switched of the lights we became aware that a... More

Having stayed previously a number of times at the hotel we were hoping for a really enjoyable Christmas. Disappointingly it did not live up to our expectations with cold food sent back, poor restuarant service and an uninspiring evening buffet for Christmas Day. The break was expensive for the service received and sadly when emailing the hotel with our views... More

We have stayed at the White Lion on a number of occasions and have always really enjoyed it. The manager is usually visible and actively checks with his guests if evrything is ok etc. This weekend he wasn't there and there was a noticeable difference in the dining service. The waitresses were all delightful but sometimes forgot part of our... More

We stayed two nights including breakfast and one dinner. The White Lion is right opposite the beach at the North end of the town, we paid extra for a sea view, and did not regret it, I don't think there is a view inland to speak of. Having said that there are excellent public rooms which face the sea, including... More

We had a great weekend break just before Christmas, Mid December 2014 and it was a part of a great winter deal with fantastic food (great breakfast ever after an excellent evening meal on both nights) and very attentive service, intelligent and articulate staff with nothing being to much trouble. The only grip is that the rooms are too hot.... More
