I planned this after visiting the town a few years ago but had to wait until I found the right man. We spent two nights here - I got flu and spent most of the time in bed with a box of Kleenex and Lemsips. Despite being ill - this was a great place to be. The room was quaint and had a good view over some rooftops across the countryside. Food was excellent and breakfast plentiful. Porridge is available on request and I had that every morning although it could have done with being cooked a bit longer as the grains hadn't swelled as much as I like them (this is a matter of taste).
All staff were friendly and helpful without being too much in your face but there if you want something. The only quirky member was an elderly lady who seemed to do the cleaning in the front lounge - we were sitting there relaxing and she entered the small room and started cleaning, dusting and moving things without a greeting or acknowledgement seeming put out that we were there and we thought this a bit rude but quirky so we took it in good humour.
Despite renovations to the windows and workmen being around, it was a very special time and the hotel is certainly one I would visit again - if they have me back after reading this.

Room Tip: The website is outstanding as it gives you details about the views and rooms individually so you can pick one to suit your needs before you go.

Stayed here for 3 nights(7-10/10/11) for price of 2 with the proviso we ate in the restaurant on 1 evening. The room was clean and tidy, bathroom was lovely. Good view from the window. ate in restaurant on first night with intention of eating at other establishments for the remaining evenings. food was so good we ate off the bar menu the next 2 nights. food was well cooked and presented and plenty of it! Breakfast choice was fine, what ever was wanted, and equally as good as dinner. Staff were all friendly and helpful, and eager to please.
A most delightful weekend and we would definately stay here again

We stayed for one night which was a friday, most hotels wouldn`t let us have a room for one night at the weekend but we had no trouble at all at the white lion, the rooms are usually around the ninety pound mark but they do deals and we got one for seventy five including full english breakfast! The room was nice and comfortable with a new en-suite but i have two small moans, one was a strange chemical smell in the room and the restaurant which was directly below us, maybe this was a temporary thing, i don`t know, the other moan was the lighting in the rooms, this was by way of down light spot lights which weren`t very relaxing, maybe some bedside reading lamps would be more suitable.
Haworth is a great place for a night out with good friendly pubs and good beer etc, we ate in the hotel and both the food and service were fantastic.
In the morning we were walking along the pennine way to hebden bridge for the night, a distance of eleven miles so we needed hot drinks for the day, a really kind lady on the reception desk had two flasks of tea made up for us free of charge, that`s good service!
The old white lion is a good hotel and restaurant with good beers etc set in a lovely traditional bar, very nice, i would definately go back, many thanks Steve and Denise.

Thankyou Steve & Denise for your kind review, you deserved the flasks for that long hike back to Hebden Bridge. We must apologise for the smell you mentioned this smell came from the fireplace we have just renovated in our Restaurant , we are in the middle of refurbing the Restaurant the first stage had been carried out the week you stayed with us the final stage will be this week with all new flooring , tables and chairs. The smell was only a temporary thing we are sincerely sorry for that. The lighting we will take your idea of the lamps on board, most of the lighting we have are on dimmer switches anyway which gives a nicer atmosphere .
Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Best wishes from

We chose the Old White Lion in Haworth because it was the best place near to the village where our friend was holding her 50th birthday party. We also decided to make a weekend of it and visit the Bronte Parsonage museum. The hotel room rate is not cheap 'Travel Lodge' style but you certainly get what you pay for and I don't begrudge paying a good business that delivered what I had hoped for from our weekend stay.

All of the staff I met were helpful and friendly.

I booked the room on-line and it was almost exactly as described. The view across the Worth valley was indeed spectacular. The room was warm, comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom was almost new and very clean and bright.

Breakfast was very good and the choice quite excellent. The dining room was very traditional and provided a pleasant environment. We enjoyed dinner on Friday night, the quality of food and presentation was high. Waiting staff were all great. Retiring to the bar we found that equally welcoming with a fine range of ale and a very pleasant traditional environment. There were quite a few locals and that added to the enjoyment and atmosphere. On our next visit I think we would try the bar menu as it looked to have plenty of appetising choices.

The hotel is located at the top of Main Street, Howarth. The immediate surroundings are heritage quality stone buildings set in a beautiful cobbled street. Think 'Hovis' advert, really nice.

Overall a great stay and we would go back.

Parking in Howarth is very difficult but if you cannot get one of the Hotel spaces, the reception staff will provide a voucher allowing free parking at a car park some 100m from the hotel

Room Tip: I chose room 9 but I would imagine any room listed as overlooking the Worth valley would provide the great view.

Had 2 meals in the White Lion, best excellent value and quality. The waitress service on the first night was unfriendly, however much improved on the second night, dependent on who served you. Lovely pub, abit too warm in the bar, but food very good.

Room Tip: We didn't stay here but no option to mark N/A for sleep quality and rooms
