“Lovely overnight stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We stayed here for one night, en-route to Cheltnham. We stayed in the lovely 4 poster bedroom, ate an evening meal in the bar, and had breakfast.

The room, was at a very comfortable temperature, with windows that opened if you wanted (not always in some places!). The bed was incredibly comfortable and probably one of the best nights sleep we'd had for a very long time. The bathroom was a little dated, but had a juccuzi back, and good shower- with plenty of hot water.

Dinner in the evening was excellent, although slightly more pricey than we'd normally pay for the amount of food we had. It was lovely thought, and to be honest I didn't mind paying a little more for such good food. There were draft beers on tap (always a highlight for my other half) and were reasonably priced for a hotel.

Breakfast was very good, and there was a good selection of cereals etc available, though we had the cooked breakfast.

Our stay was lovely, and if we needed a place to stay along the M6, we'd certainly stay here rather than any of the chain hotels.

One minus was that to get to the hotel, its not directly off the M6, so make sure you have your sat nav. Worth the little extra journeying for the excellent sleep though!!!

Just the one night here at the end of a long week travelling the country with overnight stops in hotels of a well known national chain. The difference is clear !

The overall ambience of the place is wonderful, a neat blend of the old and the new. The room was clean comfortable and quiet and the staff were friendly and attentive.

We had dinner in the restaurant and the service was calm and efficient and the food excellent - literally nothing to fault as far as I'm concerned - highly recommended.

Thanks for your kind comments. In 1931 Herbert and Alice Austin started 81 years of the Austin family at the Golden Lion. Currently, the third generation, James and Claudia Austin have kept the village pub links to the past, established an award winning restaurant, and are now looking to the future with their 17 bedroom Hotel.

Came here with a walking group and really enjoyed the Sunday roast. The service and food was very good, and we were made very welcome. The staff went out of their way to find somewhere for our group of muddy walkers and dogs to sit (even though this isn't a 'dog-friendly' establishment) and we really enjoyed our lunch. Will definitely return!

Recently visited for a family meal. The starters were ok to be fair. I ordered medium rare rump steak for ~£18 and what I got was a very very overcooked bit of tough steak, half a burnt tomato and about 10 chips. I would have been disappointed at having that from a '2 meals for £10' at weatherspoon, but for £18 ... total rip-off. Other family member had lamb, which was not quite as bad a mine, but very tough. Plenty of other places around where the quality of food justifies their prices. This place doesn't, so we won't be going back.

Whilst visiting friends nearby they took us for an evening meal at the Golden Lion. What a joy.
Friendly welcome, excellent beer, superb food.

Plenty of people in the place even though it was midweek so it must be doing something right

What more can you ask from a night out

I stayed for 1 night and with all of the other hotel rooms booked by my fellow work colleagues, we used the conference room facilities the next day which were adequate. We had group evening meal, service was excellent. We had Lunch the next day and considering the amount of us, again the food and service you could not fault.

Wi-fi speed is good

So as usual the very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Free Wi-fi,, not much difference between the rooms

We went on a Sunday for a carvery, with friends and family it was a really nice meal the beef was really tender and moist, massive beautiful Yorkshire puddings and had Eton mess for dessert which was also gorgeous. Probably the nicest carvery I've ever had.
