Warm welcome. Pleasant room with all usual facilities, but the shower was very poor, low pressure. There was a wedding function going on which was a bit noisy in the night, but overall not too bad. Good choice of ales in the bar, including Hobgoblin. Breakfast was a good cooked English, with usual cereals, fruit etc.

My husband and 1 had an overnight stay on 11th Feb. Everything was perfect from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. The hotel staff are all so friendly and could not do more to make your stay an enjoyable one. The food here is excellent, all freshly cooked to perfection and the extensive menu gives...

This hotel is conveniently situated in the centre of Belper. A hotel carpark right next door. The receptionists are most helpful and friendly. Our bedroom was adequate but by no stretch of the imagination luxurious. But the large double bed was very comfortable The worst thing was the bathroom. There was very limited space to put toiletries; the towel rail...

We occasionally go to the Lion Hotel for lunch. The bar and serving staff are very helpful and attentive BUT the food quality is variable. Yesterday we called in and ordered our drinks and simple lunches (delivered very quickly) but neither of us could finish the food which was not up to the standard we've previously experienced ...unseasoned, fatty and...

Visited Friday evening for a meal, we arrived promptly at 7pm and went to the bar to order a drink. The young man behind the bar seemed very unsure about our drinks order; we only ordered 2 diet cokes! We said we had a booked table and we're told to go to the pizzeria area. We ordered our meal, the...

We visited on a Sunday afternoon, There was a large and varied choice of Beers, in this well appointed Hotel, and the food was excellent, We had a stone backed pizza, and it was excellent, In a Large room there was free live Music, which was of a very high class nature.

Nice rooms with a very nice bar and a restaurant with Pizza oven offering fantastic Pizza. Staff are always friendly and the room rates very good. Situation is ideal for walking into Belper town or travelling further along the Derwent Valley. Have visited the hotel and booked people into stay many times, never disappointed.

We have eaten at The Lion on several occasions in the past, and in fairness it's always been good- until today. We were seated in what can only be described as a black room! It had black walls, dated dining tables and virtually non existent lighting. Apart from being too dark to eat it had an awful 'feel' to the...
