When we arrived, we were greeted by a charming receptionist, Unfortunate that the reception desk was fronted by bare plywood and the carpets had seen so much better days,but her smile was memorable. Our room was a super king,the best sleep we have have had in ages really comfy, but the room was dull, in real need of re decoration... More

Basically writing a quick review on this place as it frustrates me more than anything. I've been to a wedding here, had a friend that worked here, attended an event here and took my overseas family here and have to say it was far from satisfactory on 2 of these occassions. Its worth stating that I've never stayed here and... More

Just home from a one night stay in Belper. We really enjoyed our night at The Lion. Our family room was large, comfy, clean, quiet. The children enjoyed a nice bath! Breakfast was five star. Fast, fresh and plenty. The best bit.......The staff. Friendly, professional and on the ball. We'll definitely be back. Id recommend The Lion to anyone.

We stayed here on a Wowcher deal and I can honestly say everything was fine, yes there was a little mildew on shower ceiling, so what? The room was clean, the bed was comfy, the bar meal was fine, the breakfast was fab, I cannot honestly find anything to complain about.

Disappointing. Room needed a good clean. Small bathroom. I stayed above the pub, I expected noise but not to hear word for word the conversation in the room below. Very friendly staff. Never had an evening meal, just breakfast which was adequate. Sorry, But it was not for me.
