“Could do better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

I stayed recently at the lion Hotel in Dulverton. The room was a bit dated but spacious, bed was comfortable. The evening meal was home made and very tasty. My only fault here was the awful breakfast served. I didn't bother having breakfast on my last day as there are plenty of other places to eat.

Stayed August 2013, traveled on business

I have just tried some of the new range of Pizza that the Lion are offering, they are good. I ate mine in the office and - as I was busy I didnt get time to eat them - they went cold. They still tasted good and the thin crust didnt go soggy.

Myself and my partner have returned to The Lion Hotel two or more times a year for twenty years. Not only is it in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, it is also as welcoming to holiday makers, (dogs included) and business people as does the town of Dulverton. The resturant food and breakfast is freshly cooked to a very high standard. We highly recommend this hotel. Alan, Sue and Daisy the dog

Lovely place, welcoming Thai lady who seemed to be reception, cleaner, barmaid etc
Comfy beds, could do with central heating on a cold night and showers were very hopeless
They've obviously just redecorated - our room had a sash window painted wide open , then manager seemed completely unaware of this, but did offer
to sort it out . ( do owners EVER stay in their own rooms ?)
Didn't eat there, looked a but dull, nicer restaurant up the road

Welcoming staff, hotel appeared to be having a new coat of paint upstairs could do with a general make over lacked a bit of atmosphere.However excellent service good food,clean rooms what more do you need.Those who like a drink need to be aware of the local licensing hours close at 3 open at 6 for the 4 pubs in the village (except for the Rock Inn).Excellent location to visit the Tarr steps 6 miles by car also 6 mile footpath.Thought room was over priced compared to those stopped at on the 3 night road trip and didn't make the best use of space in the room.

I have been to the Hotel before and loved the stay. It was the same again, this time around. Although I didn't eat in the Hotel like last time because it was too busy for my dog (he hates lots of people around), I stayed for 1 night (sat) - the room was the same as before.

Had another great stay, with the owners being very friendly to me...and my dog (gave him a few treats).

I have stayed at the Lion many times over the last 4-5 years. I have always found it welcoming and friendly. It's an ancient building and the floors creak a bit but the beds are comfy and the water is always hot. The food is always excellent whether it is breakfast (you won't need lunch) or dinner. The staff are helpful and obliging and they are dog friendly, my Spaniel loves it there as she always gets treats. I now have a cottage in Dulverton but still eat often at the Lion.
