We had yet another lovely stay at The Lion. The food is amazing and the rooms clean and spacious and have everything in them you need for your stay. The staff here go out their way to ensure your stay is perfect. Would highly recommend giving here a try you won't be disappointed.

I stayed at The Lion hotel because I was visiting friends in Belper and I was delighted to find such a welcoming hotel that was dog friendly. The room was comfortable and breakfast was great. I'll definitely be back.

No-one on the desk when we arrived - waited a good while. When girl arrived, she was offhand.and unhelpful. Room was adequate though the pillows were very lumpy. Only 2 tea bags! We stayed two nights and on the second night there was a live band playing at a function - really, really noisy!! On the positive side, breakfast was... More

Booked the Arkwright suite for our friends 60th wedding anniversary party. The room was beautifully decorated and set out. The staff were very accommodating and attentive throughout the evening. The food was excellent and at £15 for an adult three course, was great value for money. A special mention for the great kids pizzas which were stone baked in the... More

Visited recently for a business meeting. Easy to park or use train. I had a really nice bar snack. Warm and pleasant surroundings in the lounge bar. The staff are all really helpful and go the extra mile....gateway the Derbyshire Dales a hotel with local charm.

Visiting family we booked into the Lion overnight. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant very nice but we found the room very tired and in need of some attention. The carpet had cigarette burns and the vacuum had not touched the bed side for a long time. The shower door did not fit properly... More

Best Pub / Hotel in Belper due to the present family owners being onsite 99% of the time, ensuring obliging cheerful staff, very good meals served in the bar or the restaurant, nice warm atmosphere. this hotel was badly run by the former owners so ignore some of those early poor reviews

We stayed at the Lion Hotel between Christmas and New Year. We were greeting in a friendly and professional manner, the room was of a good standard, we were in a room overlooking the garage, but we had been told upon booking and we didn't find it too overbearing at all, after all when you book a town centre hotel...

Took myself and family for lunch on Christmas Eve. We've been dying to try out the pizza's. Well, we certainly weren't disappointed. The pizza's were fantastic. Two out of four chose the Steak & Ale pie with a puff pastry topping, homemade chips and veg. This too was delicious. Plenty of steak, loads of chips and a good sized portion... More

Having stayed at this hotel before we decided to return, but due to serveral items in the room, like flooded shower cubicle, damp on the walls , poor decor, not even a glass in the bathroom to drink from, we complained by email, but the owner was to busy to reply, and after a second email still no response, so...
