We had heard of the Lion situated in Buckden and when friends suggested we stayed there, we looked at the reviews prior to committing ourselves. We wasted our time in doing so. Upon arrival, very friendly people met us. Checking in was easy. Having settled in we sought afternoon tea, it was similar to a banquet, beautifully presented and maybe a little too much on the plate but better to leave an amount of food rather than leave with an amount of disappointment.
The room was spacious, very clean, plenty of tea and coffee and a very comfortable bed.
Later in the evening, a group of 10 sat down for dinner, and again the food was tremendous and still no option to leave hungry!
Checking out the following day was easy, but no feeling of 'you've paid, now leave'.
Overall, we were made very welcomed and yes, we would stay there again without hesitation.
