The Old White Lion Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Haworth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2006

The staff here are just marvelous, genuinely friendly and polite. It "feels" halfway between a bed and breakfast and a regular hotel.....larger than a bed and breakfast but much more intimate and friendlier than a typical hotel.

The morning breakfast was large, excellent, and very English. We also had lunch in the dining room (roast beef and Yorkshire pudding) and it was really tasty. The dining rooms are cozy, comfortable, and almost exactly what an American might dream about an Olde English Inn might look like inside.

The pub at the Old White Lion stayed open late.....it was the night after England beat Ecuador in the World Cup so the locals were pretty buzzed....it was a fun time!

The room was more cramped than a usual American motel, but the bed was extremely comfortable and one has to consider that the building is probably 150-200 years old, so the rooms will be smaller than we are used to. It was big enough and actually very cozy and charming.

I hope to visit Haworth and the Old White Lion again....someday!!!

Absolutely beautiful! Don't get me wrong...this is not meant to be a 5 star hotel but it was an amazing place. Very clean and comfortable. Great service with friendly local staff. If you visit Haworth Yorkshire you are visiting for the atmosphere and this place provides it. The hotel looks as old as the town but the facilities are very modern. There is so much character to the place. It really feels like you have stepped back in time. The dining areas are intimate and cozy, great for a romantic getaway. A reasonable price as well. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

We just returned from Haworth and our stay at the Old White Lion. I loved Haworth and this hotel! The restaurant was amazing, and I have not found more helpful people at any hotel.

We traveled in the middle of a heatwave, and though this hotel does not have a/c (few in England do!) the reception area gave us their fan for each night we were there! The internet access was a big benefit to me as well. This hotel could not be located in a better place. Steps from the Bronte Parsonage and other shops and restaurants, we could not have asked for more.

We had wanted to try to eat at a few different places, but dinner was so good we kept returning to our hotel.

We loved this hotel and would love to come back. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was clean and lovely. The view...I could even do it justice. It was lovely!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Old White Lion in June 2004. We found our accomodations to be above and beyond our expectations. The restaurant/bar was not only charming and authentic, but also served incredible food! The view from our window was of the little cobblestone streets that line the village of Haworth.

During our trip we traveled to London and Paris as well, but I have to say Haworth was the highlight of our adventure (despite wacky weather and continuous bursts of rain on the Moors). The Old White Lion made the journey even more memorable. You can't beat the location in the middle of this adorable historic village, and you can't find more spacious accomodations anywhere on the other side of the Atlantic.

I've been to Great Britain over 50 times, and this is by far the best hotel I've ever seen. The staff is friendly, the location is excellent, and the breakfast is exceptional. It would be a great place to stay during your vacation!
