It was so nice to be looked after by Chris and Yolanda. It was lovely. The room was neat, clean, and very comfortable with a huge TV! The room was en-suite and I had the most relaxing bubble-bath. I had a full English breakfast in the morning. I never bother making one for just me, so it was lovely to... More

Firstly, May I ask have you reviewed the right pub!! We cannot believe you are addressing our pub as EVERY festive fayre we have sent out from our kitchen has had exemplary comments made on the freshness, quality and delicious food that they have eaten. Anyone reading this review should look at our past history and will realise that this... More

Great stay at this lovely and cosy BB in Whissendine. We got a really spacious room with a very comfortable bed and a very warm and clean bathroom, and a very large TV screen too! Breakfast is superb and the staff is great and extremely friendly. The pub is also really really nice!

Myself, sister and parents have just returned from spending 3 nights at The White Lion B&B in Whissendine. We chose this accommodation as it was central to a lot of places we wanted to visit. The hosts, Chris and Yolanda, were very welcoming and very accommodating. We found out that Chris is a magician (and member of the Magic Circle)... More

Just returned from short break and would highly recommend the White Lion. Could not have received a warmer welcome and been better looked after than we were by Chris & Yolanda. Lovely couple with great staff and really homely atmosphere. Enjoyed a hearty breakfast every day and great food in the evening. Rooms very comfortable & well equipped and b&b... More

I stayed here for 5 nights with my 10 year old son, the pool table and the dart board were a big hit for him. The pub garden is well kept, the rooms are pleasant and good value, as is the food. The best feature is the relaxed and personable vibe which is created by the owners. The staff are... More

I needed a place to stay while working away from home so had this place recommended to me. I stayed for one night in a double room B&B. I have to say it was a great recommendation. The room was clean and comfortable, I slept like a log and breakfast was delicious. The staff were great, as was the pub,... More

We stayed for two nights this week at the White Lion and were very impressed. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and happy to go the 'extra mile' to make your stay enjoyable. The food is excellent. We stayed in room 1 which was very spacious with an excellent ensuite bathroom. Would certainly recommend this place. Barbara2785

Very welcoming. Rooms we've stayed in nice - stay with our dog so only allowed in standard rooms. No major problems and if there's been anything it's been sorted quickly and efficiently. Would definitely recommend. Lovely breakfast. Yolanda and Chris great hosts. Have been twice and are booked in again so can't really say more!
