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!!!
