What a very pleasant surprise, nice hotel, great team to look after you and a cracking location. Didn't expect any of that, had a room on the top floor with a wonderful view out over the river. Knocks Inverness for six! Rickety stairs but worth if for the view once you do get to your room. Nice shower too of...

The staff were so friendly. One or two problems with things in room, the Manageress was on the ball and sorted it out quickly. Very impressed. I stayed for 3 nights in November and have booked again for next year. Food was good. Would like a little more choice for none meat eaters though but free from onions.

Had to visit family locally needed somewhere cheap clean with parking. This hotel provided all three. The bonus was the breakfast full English cooked to a good standard. The room was basic, but had everything for one night. Had a pint in the bar, staff friendly would return.

We arrived mid-day to be welcomed in the bar by a few drunks guys with bad language, which didn't make for a good first impression. The bar at the rear of the hotel seemed to be the smokers bar!!! We stayed in Room 102 which was suppose to be there luxury room. The bed was very comfy but the room...

I stayed here a few months ago for work. The rooms are basic and the hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but the staff are incredibly friendly. I'm a vegan and I've recently stayed in a lot of hotels for work (probably about 70). The chef at The White Lion Hotel was the only one to come and...

Nice place clean and tidy, stairs a bit steep up to rooms so if you are a bit infirm not ideal. No bar snacks apart from crisps and nuts and we were a bit peckish on arrival. Went to a family gathering and when we got back to the room we had loud music thumping until 3am from the neighbouring...

Great position overlooking the river and two minutes from High Street and main square. Plenty of private parking. Lovely welcome and reception / bar staff could not be more helpful. Breakfast was ok but swimming in grease and the night porter doubled up as the breakfast waiter - who looked like he also did the gardening! The room was very...
