Had a really enjoyable stay once again. This is the second time we have stayed at The Lion on our annual golf trip. Staff couldn't be more helpful, rooms very clean and tidy. Will definitely be back next year.

Bed soft but comfortable enough. Bathroom very small, toiletries supplied are only soap and very small satchels of hair/body wash. Kept awake by squeaky floorboards... More

We had a wonderful 5 days at the Lion Hotel. Hotel very nice, staff friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Food excellent although far too much. The only improvement would be some sort of entertainment at night although it may be that we were slightly out of season. Would certainly stay again and have no hesitation in... More

The staff were great. We were late arriving and they could not have been more helpful. Being on half board they made us up a packed lunch for the day we left.The hotel was very clean trough out and warm. We had food in the bar and the restaurant, the food was great in both.

6 day stay. Very enjoyable perfect location, good food and friendly staff. The room was very comfortable and everything worked. A excellent view over the bay and a pleasure to be awoken by the tweeting of songbirds every morning.

Stayed at the Lion Hotel couple of weeks ago for two nights. we found the Staff pleasant and obliging. However, our first night was ruined by a constant noise which after complaining in the morning found out to be a bathroom extraction fan left on all the previous day and all through the night in the unoccupied room next door....
