“The best spot in Oregon!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

I fell in love with Lion and the Rose! The place was warm and cozy just like someones home. The attention to detail was impressive. The staff was extremely hospitable and friendly. And the value was undeniable, increasing my pleasurable visit. Every time I visit Oregon I will stay at the Lion and the Rose. I wish that I could magically take the Lion and the Rose Inn every time I travel.

Room Tip: Every room is very comfortable, but the Garden room has the best bath tub.

We stayed for about five nights....staff were approachable, flexible and helpful when we needed to ask or adjust .......room was spacious, well appointed, bathroom too. Loved the small additions (motion det lights in closets !). Coffee at 6:30 am great - breakfast nice, simple and workable. If one thing I would change it is that during 'off' months they do not make egg dishes to order (only costco premade things) and this seems odd, esp since the # of tenants is low and staff are ALWAYS there in a.m. - funny that - an easy upgrade.

This is the 2nd time visiting. Our 1st was in the spring(3 years earlier) and this time in late October. The staff was simply teriffic throughout our stay and the location for geting around Portland was just superlative. The Inn was warm and cozy and it was a welcome respite.

My wife and I have stayed in many excellent inns and B&Bs over the years, and this one ranks up there with the best. I've tried to come up with something negative to balance my review, but can't think of a single thing. The subterranean Victorian Apartment we stayed in was an incredible bargain. Don't be deterred by its basement location....it's huge, beautifully decorated, and you'll never care a bit that it's below ground. My only regret is that we only had three nights to spend there.

Room Tip: The basement Victorian apartment, with its own private entrance, is highly recommended and a great b...

Innkeeper Steve greeted us with a warm invitation to enjoy their elegantly beautiful Victorian home in the historic Irvington area, and provided us with a wonderful overview of the sights to see in the Portland area along with necessary public transportation details. We stayed in the most delightful Victorian Garden Apartment with complete kitchen and laundry facilities for our personal use. Upon coming into the inn's kitchen for our morning coffee (breakfast is available if requested and looked lovely!), we had the pleasure of very pleasant conversation with Russ and the lovely woman in charge of breakfast. The combination of beauty, elegance, decor, cleanliness, and friendliness makes me wish there was a rating far above the 5 available here. Thank you, Lion and the Rose, for this most fabulous weekend - we will return as soon as we possibly can!!!!

My husband and I just stayed at L & R for two nights in the Garden Room. The room was large with a very comfortable, king bed. The bathroom was also large with a lovely antique clawfoot tub. All sorts of extras were included such as bubble bath, afternoon sweets, and about 50 varieties of tea. You can choose to have the breakfast or skip it. Since it was October, they breakfast was a little abbreviated, but there were still a number of options. The inkeepers were very thoughtful and provided us with maps of the neighborhood, and downtown Portland with points of interest. If we return to Portland, we will definitely stay at the Lion and the Rose again!

Whether you're the King of the Jungle or a VGLDSW (very good looking damn smart woman), you'll love the royal treatment at The Lion & The Rose Victorian B&B. I had the pleasure of staying in the Lavonna Room -- bright, airy, charming & inviting. A group of us gal-pals had a girlfriends' weekend in Portland & we enjoyed having wine & chatting in the turret sitting area off the Lavonna bedroom, unwinding after our flights. Each of us have stayed at a number of B&Bs & we all agreed, this was an extraordinary experience, from the deliciously-prepared breakfast (featuring fresh local products & fresh picked herbs from the garden) to the luxe sheets & bath products to their extensive knowledge of the history of this magnificent home & their spot-on recommendations on how to best enjoy their lovely city. This is so much more than "a nice play to stay" -- it's a royal experience!

Room Tip: If you're a family, they have a suite (complete w/small kitchen) that sleeps 6. If you'd ra...
