Lovely big bedroom with large en-suite. Very clean. Really comfortable large double bed. Great breakfast, fruit, juice, yogurt, cereal and a large well cooked full English breakfast. Great evening meal and real ale at bar. Parking permit. Friendly staff. would stay again.

My wife and I popped into the Lion Hotel on Saturday 16th May. We hadn't booked anywhere and were looking for somewhere to eat. We were shown to a table next to a warm fire which was really nice, the young waitress was really helpful. The food however was disappointing, the garlic bread and olives were nice but the main...

Visited on the off chance. Busy but we were found a table in a crowded bar by excellent and caring staff. Had 2 pints of well served real ale (good choice available with our roast beef lunch. Beef pleasingly presented with a gentle tinge of pink as well cooked beef should be with a good range of veg. Yorkies definitely... More

Called in early doors for a meal and drinks after a family funeral in at Dulverton church. We were made welcome at 6 pm by a lovely young lady. Wood burners were lit and TV on, nice and warm, clean inviting. First time I had been in that side of the building, last time I was in the tap bar... More

Called in for a break in our Exmoor tour. Great welcome, prompt service. Good beer and we liked the choice of food. We both had different dishes and very much enjoyed them. This is pub is set in the wilds of no where but we found the welcome from staff and locals very friendly. If you expect London standards and... More

Another incompetent night at the Lion Hotel in Dulverton. A meal at which the food arrived uncooked or not at all in some cases. Some of us waited over an hour for our main course to be served. When it arrived it was uncooked and on cold plates. The Lion needs a vet.

I booked this B&B last minute and wish I had the chance to research others. I arrived the same day as I booked. Upon walking through the doors with bags in hand I was given a quizzical look and not even a hello until I asked the question 'is this the B&B?' and that I had in fact booked. The... More

To be fair, it was ok, absolutely not worth the money. Stayed one night, we had twin beds, very clean but creaky, no headboards; floor very squeaky; the notes on the hotel said it featured a TV in the room...... It did, but very very small! & simply could not get hooked up to the hotel Wifi at all. The... More

We stayed here with two friends for a couple of nights recently. We stayed in room 9 we had a view down the town and across to the post office. We had a creaky bed, but we got a full nights sleep and it was very comfortable. Unfortunatly there was a lot of noise from the Tap Bar just below... More
