I have stayed at Old White Lion before and always found it perfect. Location is the best in Haworth. Bronte parsonage and church is 2 minutes walk and the hotel is situated at the top of the old cobbled street of Haworth. It is like taking a step back in time.. Some rooms look over the street and others over the Yorkshire Moors which can be very romantic !
I booked very late and this time the only room left was room 12 which was a little disappointing. Quite small and radiator was not working,( it only heated at the bottom so needed attention) so it was a little cold in the room, also shower was poor and small and soap tray was broken/missing.
I left a note and also told the staff so I assume this will now have been fixed.
(I marked the room as average on this visit but other rooms are much better)
Food was great, varied menu, we ate in the bar rather than restaurant and had a wonderful meal served by lovely staff. Breakfast was good, we had full English served to us by nice ladies rather than the usual buffet and a good choice to suit everyone.
Over all I would recommend Old White Lion and will stay there again, but I will book in advance next time for a better room.
