I stayed at the White Lion for one night and found it a great place to stay. The bar area was friendly and warm with log fire and a very comfortable atmosphere but with nothing either pretentious or overly quaint about it.
I stayed in one of the courtyard rooms, which was excellent. A very large double room which was well kept and spotlessly clean. I found the courtyard itself a really nice surprise. It's set back off the road and away from the hotel a little, which gives an extra sense of privacy and personal space but without making you feeling 'out of things'.
A special word must go to the helpfulness of the staff that I encountered during my visit. I returned home to find I had left my house keys in my room after checking out and, on calling the hotel to inform them of this, they quickly suggested that they would post them to me, free of charge. This was done the next day as promised and it saved me a lot of stress and worry, as well as saving me the expense of paying for postage.
All in all, thoroughly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The White Lion is a traditional coaching inn; with exposed timber and masonry, an abundance of comfortable corners to hide in, and always a warm and friendly atmosphere. Set on a riverside location in central Hebden Bridge, the inn has always been well known for fine country ‘pub’ dining, and its extensive choice of wines and real cask ales. All of which can be enjoyed throughout the year, whether that be in front of a roaring log fire, or in one of our scenic riverside cobbled courtyards. ... more less
