My girlfriend and I spent last weekend at a wedding in York staying at the 5* Cedar Court Grand.
The stay was fantastic and the wedding wonderful. In the car returning home we were deciding which was the best, the big fancy hotel or our idilic country pub stay at the White Lion. Both had the quality that is expected of 5* and both left us feeling as though we had experienced something very special.....
The care and attention to detail of our room in the White Lion was amazing for a country pub. The roll top bath, huge bathroom and massive comfortable bed made our stay rush by faster than we wanted. The locally sourced food on the breakfast menu ensured we experienced the best of Yorkshire without having do any work ourselves. The staff were warm, attentive and made us feel very special throughout our stay.
The truth is I cannot separate the two, and in fact I would just insist you go to both to make your own mind up......
Wonderful pub and beautiful room..... A must do for a trip to Hebden Bridge.
PS. Make sure you go to the local nightclub / live music venue, a brilliantly unique Hebden Bridge experience!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A REAL YORKSHIRE WELCOME AWAITS...The White Lion Hotel is a traditional coaching inn, with exposed timber and masonry, an abundance of comfortable corners to hide in, and always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Set on a riverside location in central Hebden Bridge, the inn has always been well known for fine, yet informal and relaxed country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and real cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring log fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards. Surrounded by true Yorkshire history and the stunning countryside of the deep ravined valleys of Calderdale; the area is popular with walkers, cyclists, country lovers, and those just in search of a contrast to a hectic lifestyle. The countryside can be easily accessed by foot straight from the doorstep of the inn, and that same doorstep has frequently offered a place of respite to many attempting the Pennine Way. Also within easy access to the rail and motorway networks, and just far enough away from the vibrant cities of Leeds and Manchester; the inn is centrally based for business or leisure. And if you were to require an excuse to stay with us for longer, then there are 10 spacious en-suite rooms to choose from. The newly refurbished boutique bedrooms, with Victorian roll-top baths and deep luxurious colours, are complimented by family rooms and courtyard cottages - with the riverside literally at your front door. Dated 1657, the White Lion Hotel is reputed to be the oldest building in the beautiful town of Hebden Bridge, which is renown for its independent lifestyle, creativity, and philosophy - the Yorkshire way! Now under new ownership since September 2011 and with a full building refurbishment to be completed by December 2011; we look forward to welcoming you soon... ... more less
