My husband and I recently had the pleasure of a two night stay at The Lion whilst catching up with family and attending the Arcadia Music festival.
I loved the look of the hotel, it is very attractively decorated and set out with quality fittings and we received a warm welcome from Reception.
The room (7) was well appointed if on the small side - it was a surprise to find the fabulous bathroom was almost the same size! There was no view to speak of sadly, which was a shame as we understand that we were the only guests staying on our first night and their might have been a better room available?
We made use of the bar, the seating area and ate both nights in the restaurant, with family joining us on the second night.
Food was good, not the best we've had but perfectly acceptable for the price, it was an inventive menu and Chef was happy to make changes according to taste. I felt the portion sizes were more than adequate, with both of us leaving a bit as feeling well fed on the first night. (Coq au vin & Fish & chips)
Breakfast was superb on both mornings - cooked to order with wonderfully tasty ingredients, served with a smile in a lovely room with nice views. I'd go as far as to say it was one of the best cooked breakfasts I've ever had in a hotel.
On our second night family joined us for dinner and they liked the food as much as we did. Only slight niggle was how salty the side dishes of kale / cabbage were accompanying both the chicken and duck dishes. Otherwise the food was again well cooked, full of flavour and nicely presented
So all in all we enjoyed the stay and would happily stay again should the need arise.
Of particular note was how well trained, attentive and friendly the staff are, the service was really great from each and every staff member we encountered, so a big thank you is in order to all who made our stay such a pleasant one.
