I stayed at the old White Lion about a year and a half ago with family and was happy with the traditionally styled rooms and good service, but the place was clearly very tired and in need of a real makeover.
After reading in my local paper about a recent refurb, me & my partner thought that we would revisit, to see what had changed.
OH MY! What a transformation! The room was stunning, with beautiful features in the room and the bathroom. I had forgotten my shampoo & luckily there were White Company toiletries that saved me venturing on to the high street. and fluffy bathrobes too!
The staff were lovely, some of the junior staff were still getting used to the changes and were a bit shakey - but the management team were very attentive.
We didn't eat at the restaurant, as we had eaten before we arrived, but the food coming out of the kitchen looked lovely - I can't wait to go back and try a steak, or a pizza from the large pizza oven!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Following a stunning recent refurbishment the White Lion Hotel now gracefully combines ‘olde world’ charms with a contemporary look and feel. All of the rooms (including family and superior rooms) have been delightfully re-furbished to provide guests with flat screen TVs displaying over 40 digital channels, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities and new luxurious beds and bedding. Guests can also make use of the function and conference facilities, complimentary WiFi and the restaurant, serving quality fresh food sourced from the best suppliers. The pub remains the heart and soul of the White Lion Hotel and food is our specialty. The enhanced environment, combined with a fantastic new fresh food offer, allows guests to enjoy either a meal in our bar, or for more of an occasion dine in our restaurant. Diners and drinkers alike can also enjoy one of our many real ales or wines selected from around the world. The town itself has been described as ‘the Jewel of the Weald’, with wide tree lined streets, historic buildings, inns and a host of specialist shops. Out and about there are picture postcard villages to explore, manor houses and gardens, and of course, Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of parkland. ... more less
