A great pub, with great staff and food, very welcoming, superb room. Modernised bathroom, clean, tidy, lots of towels and accessories. Magic bar food - very good quality and service. The breakfast was excellent too in the morning - freshly cooked and quality ingredients. All in all, a brilliant stay at a fabulous pub, I would recommend it and I will certainly be back.

It was nice to start our small England holiday here in the charming village of Haworth. This hotel has a prime location on the village main street. We received a warm welcome and all our questions were handled very professionally and quickly. Friendly service at the reception, breakfast room and in the pub and very pleasant atmosphere overall. Clean and beautiful room with a good bed, slept really well.

We have just spent a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable three nights at the Old White Lion and cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the room was lovely and comfortable and the food was amazing (but be prepared for the huge portions!) We will definitely be booking a return visit and will no doubt do so for the foreseeable future. Huge thanks to everybody for making our stay so wonderful.

When we arrived we were shown to our rooms and were delighted with the views over the Worth Valley, the staff were pleasent and helpful.The hotel is situated at the top of Main Street in a prime location. The breakfast was the largest I`ve ever been served in a hotel a great way to start the day.
The real value was the free extra night stay on Sunday if we would eat in the hotel restaurant one night, unfortunately because of work we had to decline, if the offer is on next time we will definately take it up.

I cannot say enough about The Old White Lion, as my friends and family can all too readily confirm. From its beautiful and impeccably clean guestrooms to its sinfully delicious (and perhaps *too* plentiful) breakfast, The Old White Lion is the most lovely hotel I've ever stayed in. Doreen is an angel, as is all the staff, and Haworth is just the most beautiful place. If you plan to visit, do yourself a favor and stay at The Old White Lion.

From my first enquiry by email (answered in minutes) to check out yesterday morning, I was most impressed by the Old White Lion - and it takes a lot, as I work in the tourism industry. The quality of the information and welcoming style ensured I booked this hotel.

My sister and I had a twin with shower - everything spotless, and no nasty damp smell or mould in the shower as you so often see elsewhere. The restaurant food (dinner and breakfast) was delicious and the house Shiraz was also wonderful - and reasonably priced. Special request food for my sister's gluten- and dairy-free diet wasn't only well coped with, there was clearly someone in the kitchen thinking, asking and offering alternatives.

Service was friendly, very welcoming and spot-on. Staff are clearly well-managed and trained.
