Our party of four arrived at the White Lion about 1:00 pm, well before the stated earliest booking in time of 2:30 pm, and were made welcome by the receptionist who quickly checked that our rooms were in fact ready for occupation. Good start. Both rooms on the top floor were of a good size, with comfortable beds and interesting... More

We found this hotel to be a beautiful relaxing place to have a winter birthday treat. The room was cosy & warm and the bed was extremely comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our restaurant experience in the evening. The food was exceptional and the waiting staff were really nice and helpful. We were even further impressed by the choices for breakfast.... More

Having checked in, was told that there was no food service that night. I had received no prior notification. The weather was really poor, so the lack of in-house catering was a significant let down. Then went to the bedroom to find it was little more than an en-suite broom cupboard. Tiny, with a single bed which barely fitted, and... More

We were lead to believe this would be a wonder full experience with lavish decoration etc. We were most disappointed, white drapes of different sizes around the room to hide curtains etc, looked very tatty, a beautiful fire place covered with a tinsel curtain, why, who uses tinsel curtains these days, and a very lonely xmas tree, stretch and loose...

we had booked the private function room for a baby shower. The room was set up beautifully and we booked to have afternoon tea. The sandwiches and cakes were simply fantastic and were beautifully presented. I would recommend to anyone to anyone looking for cream tea in a lovely location at a great price!

We have just returned from a weekend at the White Lion Hotel and unusually for us we are moved to write a review here as we received excellent service from all the staff. It started with the telephone call on Friday to warn us that there would be loud music from an evening event in the function room. We then... More

We booked the function room at the White Lion for a baby shower and had a cream tea. The staff were very accommodating, and the room was arranged perfectly. Above all though, the food was spectacular. Traditional tea with sandwiches and scones but with so much more. Beautifully crafted cakes, light and fluffy meringues,individual lemon curd tarts,yummy,pink macaroons and so... More

Return visit to the White Lion (after staying at neighbouring properties at other times) on a special DBB offer. Overall, this is a good 3* seaside hotel with excellent levels of service. There are things that could be touched up around the hotel but the facilities are fine in general. The Bedroom/bathroom was perfectly adequate with standard features. On the... More
