LONG OVERDUE, 5 STARS...the Lamb and Lion is the first B&B (or hotel/restaurant/establishment of any kind) that I’ve ever written a review for, so this is about as high as the praise can get. For starters, Tom and Ali are great! They’re super friendly, accommodating and quick with great suggestions for local bars, restaurants, beaches and bike trails. My (now)... More

Hi Chris! I love the photo almost as much as the review! THANK YOU for the "5 stars" and although I know how hard we work to achieve those, hospitality is in our blood--we love the industry and with customer service circling the drain in so much of our daily lives these days it's always incredibly rewarding to give a...

We were attending a surpirse party on the cape and needed a pet friendly place to stay. The Inn was on a list provided by the party organizer. We didn't expect much but were really surprised from the moment we arrived. The warm friendly greetings from Ali and Tom set the tone for our stay. They are truly concerned about... More

Oh, wow! Just what we needed. We were suppose to be in St. Croix as I type this but Ali got very sick and we had to cancel 8 hours before the flight! Now we're here on Cape Cod shoveling...and shoveling...AND shoveling. Your review is just what the doctor ordered (and Ali is almost all better, thank you). BUT Cape... More

The Inn was lovely with beautiful rooms and amenities. It is very clean and well maintained. We had cool rainy weather during our stay and so the salt water pool and hot tub were not used, but looked inviting just outside our room. Continental breakfast was good with homemade baked goods, granola and yogurt...coffee was excellent. We ordered the personal... More

Thank you for the lovely review! It was great to have you here. Sorry you didn't get to use the pool. The salt water pool is heated by 10 solar heating panels on the roof so it was still very swimmable, although these folks happened to hit the Cape on a couple of very grey & windy days, so I...

What a joy hidden on the bay side of the jungle of Hyannis and surrounding areas. We found delight in the suite (we were pleasantly upgraded upon arrival) with an extremely large bathroom and mirrors galore with closets everywhere along with a separate area to store clothes and an area to get dressed in besides the living area. Loved the... More

Thank you for your kind review! Well, here it is now, February on Cape Cod. Time for us to catch up on a few things we missed during the busy, busy fall--including thanking our guests for taking the time to tell the world how AWESOME we are (haha!). The courtyard is full of SNOW so the pool is closed, but... More

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at the Lamb and Lion Inn. I am so happy that we have discovered the Inn. We stumbled across the Inn through Living Social. What a gem!

Our family has been visiting the Lamb and Lion for nearly a decade and we've loved it each and every time. It's difficult to choose just a few "high-points" to include in a review but here goes: West Barnstable is quintessential Cape Cod - quaint and beautiful as all get out. The solar heated salt-water pool is delightful. The outdoor... More

Oh, Gosh Emily--did you have to mention the cappuccino chocolate chip muffins? I'm on a diet! Yes, these folks are Lamb and Lion lifers--at least we hope so--and have become friends over the years--even dating back to meeting up at the oyster festival down the road in Hyannis! And the outdoor shower IS one of our favorite inn features. Sure,... More

I see Tom and/or Ali reply to many of these reviews and use this forum for both passive aggressively defending certain critiques of the Lamb and Lion Inn, but also plugging other positive reviews, mentioning upgrades, and generally disregarding any criticism with the gesture of a free night stay and more self promotion. To each their own. The veil of... More

YES! We do believe in self-promotion, that is correct. When you own your own business this is kind of an important thing. Regarding the room sizes & decor, they range tremendously in both categories, so if this guest was stuck with a room that wasn't large enough for his needs--well, not sure why they chose the room they chose.

We found the Lamb & Lion Inn at the last minute through groupon, but didn't have to book it through groupon since tom gave it to us over the phone.

Although we rarely discount in the summer season (it's a very short window to "stay afloat" through the year), we love to pack 'em in during the off and shoulder seasons, and various specials usually do the trick. Look for specials on our website, definitely on our FB page and check out places like Groupon to see if we're doing... More

Eileen was our assistant innkeeper back when we had our 4-Diamond Relais & Chateaux property in New York's beautiful Dutchess County.
