“Great location, lovely staff shame about the noise!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

We had a pleasant stay at the old White lion. The location couldn't have been any better and the staff were all really friendly and helpful. The one thing that did bother us quite a bit was the constant loud noise of running water that was coming from outside our room. At first we just thought it was the people in the room next door having a really long shower, but I think it was just the boiler in a cupboard outside, and it went on and on and on all through the night. I would stay again, but I would have to ask for a different room. Other than that we had a lovely time in a lovely place.

Thank you for the kind comments on your positing regarding your recent stay on holiday with us and also for bringing to our attention the noise of the running water pipes outside your bedroom - the plumber was made aware of the problem and this is being dealt with as I type - Guests comments both good or not so good obviously make us aware of the guests experience and any problems can be rectified as soon as ever possible Regards - Doreen

Each August for the past seven years we have hosted an evening function for up to 40 New Zealanders at The Old White Lion Inn, and each year all of our expectations - which are always high - have been exceeded! This year was no exception. The welcome was exceptionally warm, the function room was always beautifully set up, the food senstational, and the service extremely efficient and courteous. Thank you once again to all concerned.

I've stayed in a number of budget-friendly hotels in the UK, but this was the best by far. The staff is friendly and extremely accommodating and present, which is hard to find unless you are willing to spend an arm and a leg. Food in the restaurant was lovely and the room clean and roomy. Will be back for sure.

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.
