Decided to have an overnight stay hear after seeing a recommendation in the Sunday Times. The bedroom (No 1) was smallish but adequate, clean with teas/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits, the bed was very comfortable (needed after a busy day) and the bathroom had a shower (no bath, so not able to soak aching limbs). Hotel provided fresh milk in a flask for your room (a lot nicer than the usual UHT stuff). We also had our evening meal hear which was excellent. The full "Yorkshire" breakfast was cooked to order and so arrived fersh and hot, whilst you still had a choice of cerials, fruit, yoghurt and do it yourself toast. Staff were also pleasant and helpful. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Thank you for your kind words, we appreciate feedback good and bad as it helps us improve our service and we really love to know what guests think of us and their stay with us. You mentioned about a bath, we have a few rooms with baths, so next time when you book, please mention that you would like a room with a bath. Small details, big difference is what we like to say and little things such as offering fresh milk can put a smile on people’s faces. As silly as it sounds, it is true. I am delighted you found your meal to be excellent. Thank you once again.

Kind regards,
Hayley Mace - Assistant Manager and all the team at The Lion.

We visited Settle and stayed at The Lion 1st Sept 2013 for 7 nights with a pair of recumbent trikes, the staff looked after us (and trikes) brilliantly with nothing being to much trouble, the room (overlooking the rear courtyard) was spacious and clean and the shower was the best ever being completely controllable. The food was of a high quality with the beef on Sunday being to die for, also the fish and chips with proper mushy peas. I must mention the staff again as they were so professional, attentive but not intrusive and friendly while not being over familiar, I plan to return for my birthday, thank you everyone at The Lion.

Room Tip: Ring and speak to the staff

Spent two nights at The Lion at Settle. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room. Fresh milk for tea/coffee was a nice touch. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The room décor was okay but could be doing with a little updating - the room was very clean though. We ate both nights in the restaurant - the food was fantastic! Breakfasts were great too with a huge choice on offer, catering for every need. All in all we enjoyed our time in Settle and would love to go back and stay again.

Room Tip: If staying through the week, I'd ask for a room at the back. Very peaceful on Sunday morning but on Monday we were woken by numerous lorries trundling by!

Arrived late on Thursday evening, minimum fuss at reception as staff knew we wanted to eat, whilst we chose supper from the menu our bags were taken to the bedroom - great service which was to be consistent throughout our three night stay.
The food here whilst is good and freshly cooked.
The restaurant is friendly and well managed, this culture is prevalent throughout the hotel and it is what makes a stay here so enjoyable.

Booked on the strength of reviews, and because it was dog friendly, we wanted to test a night away with our Jack Russell Terrorist. Great location,yes there isnt any on site parking,but its only 2 quid to park overnight in a pay and display a minutes walk away. Very friendly staff,fabulous food, nice little touches such as fresh milk in a little thermos for coffee/ tea in the room. Ok, we probs didnt have the best room because we did have the dog, it was fine for 1 night, maybe not for longer. We loved the log fires, so welcoming on a getting chilly afternoon, comfy chairs, plenty of good wines on offer, and im told the beer was excellent,enough was drunk to provide a quality tested review. All told, i think we made a great choice. If you go, im sorry about the knitting, it sort of didnt turn out very well, but i tried. You'll see what i mean!
