Stayed at hotel for five nights when working in the area. Reception was friendly and welcoming and I was pleasantly surprised at the size and decor of the room with its comfy bed, excellent modern ensuite and flat screen tv.....plus the essential fridge for chocolate, beers and milk on a longer stay! The hotel is very modern in design decor but set against the Olde Worlde building itself giving a great finish. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is a crowning feature, with the food being absolutely excellent. The restaurant gets busy of an evening later in the week with locals enjoying it so don't forget to reserve table!
Only downside which is not hotel's fault is that passing traffic can be a bit noisy due to the narrow village streets but this only notices if the windows are open....
Certainly a place I'd stay again without a doubt.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Lion Hotel, built in the 18th century, was originally two establishments, namely The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion. They continued to have two different proprietors until 1850, when The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion was under a single proprietor and was presumably combined into one establishment. The name seems to have been shortened to The Lion by 1867.It was in The Red Lion that the Hon. John Byng was "put into a white-washed room, and got a miserable, neither hot - nor cold dinner" in 1792.The Giffard Arms was used as a magistrates court and the Magistrates and prisoners would enter by the now blocked off door on the far right of the building.In 1870 and for many years there were many different licensees for The Lion, including E. Bagnall and A. Bourne, and in 1937 the licensee was a Mrs Anne Ball. The combined premises subsequently had a spell as a "posh" Three Star Hotel (AA & RAC).A magnificent staircase was removed from the interior of The Giffard Arms in 1970.At present, The Lion Hotel is a Grade 11 listed building. ... more less
