Returned from the Lion Hotel yesterday where my wife and I plus two friends stayed two nights. We have visited the sister hotel (Boars Head, Sudbury) on two occasions, we wrongly assumed the Lion would be on a par........how wrong could we be. Our rooms 6 and 4 in older part where not worth half the price we paid, no... More

I stayed here during a course I was attending in Ripley, very easy to get to and has its own parking (you need a code from the front desk to get out). I was very impressed with the look of the place, smart with a modern bar and lovely courtyard dining area. As I walked up the stairs I noticed... More

Loved the place,old world being renovated. Service was excellent and the room was deifinately waiting for some modern TLC. You can see that the hotel was a prestigious establishment in years gone by. Staff very responsive to requests about the history and problems with shower heads and dunnies!

Booked a one night stay here for a weekend break.. Thought we had booked a nice room at a discounted price.. Realistically we have overpaid for what the room was in fact worth.. In dire need of refurbishment, shabby well worn bed linen, no headboard, stained ceiling & very hot & uncomfortable as the window only opened a fraction. Annoyingly... More

The Lion is easy to find on the main road through Belper. Conveniently if not picturesquely situated , next to a garage with mini mart. Own free car park. In the reception/lounge it was obviously nicely furnished and greeting/booking in was pleasant and efficient. The bar/eating area is recently modernised in a good way and seems very popular with locals.... More

Nice Hotel for the money paid, Pleasant, friendly staff. Breakfast was very nice. The only downside was the bed which was very soft, but I suppose that's a matter of preference. Lovely beer garden and bar area.

From the moment we booked up until we went the service at the hotel was fantastic, the staff were lovely and were there whenever we needed the them. Breakfast was delicious and had everything you could ask for, hot or cold. However the room was dirty on the walls, the floor creaked with every movement and the window did not... More

We went to Belper for a family wedding and we were all staying in the Lion Hotel. They accommodated us well. We had a suite at the front of the hotel in the old part which was large and recently refurbished. Large bathroom with bath and separate shower. The hotel was on the main road and next to a petrol...

Really liked this little hotel it was just how I had visualised it and the friendly staff added the finishing touches. Stayed just one Saturday night, booked well in advance with cancellation policy the day before. I asked for high floor quiet room and got exactly that. Tiny little criticism, the walls were a bit thin we could clearly hear... More

So attentive.The day before we had the full breakfast and it was delicious. Great location and... More
