“Made us feel at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

Stayed here in the Victorian Apartment on a college visit last spring. It was cozy and roomy at the same time. We really enjoyed it. You can walk to several good places to eat so we never got around to eating at the B&B. The MAX transport is a few blocks away and the host are very good at keeping their guest from feeling lost in Portland.

If you're a minimalist, or prefer contemporary accommodations, please stop reading and go about your life. But if you think staying in a Victorian B&B that's chock-full of nicknacks and decorated completely in the Victorian manner, read on.

Stayed here for two nights after arriving in OR for our first visit, and were not disappointed. Steve & Dusty are experienced and talented inkeepers, and maintain their home - which they share with us travelers - in fine style. The rooms are individually decorated; we stayed in the Joseph Room and found it fine for our needs. No television except for a tiny ~16" unit (maybe it was B&W, but we never turned it on), so if you need TV, be warned. Breakfasts were simply wonderful. Fresh fruit, biscuits or scones, eggs, meat, waffles/pancakes, juices and beverages; all very nicely prepared and presented.

The Lion & The Rose is all-Victorian, all the time. We knew that on the way in, and found it to be a pleasant alternative to other B&Bs we've stayed in. Victorian immersion!

If you want to be in the middle of the Irvington neighborhood, with easy access to downtown as well as to the Interstate, look here. Two caveats: (1) very limited street parking - hey, it's in the city, ya know?; and (2) steep stairs to the second floor rooms that would be difficult-to-impossible for anyone with mobility issues. There is one first-floor room, however, that has a great bath and would be an excellent choice.

Worth the visit.

Definitely will be coming back. Lovely Victorian B&B, seems like your stepping back in time. Very helpful and welcoming hosts, I loved the Starina room I stayed in, very comfortable bed and sheets, lovely breakfasts. What more can I say?

The Lion and the Rose was a comfortable inn with helpful and warm innkeepers. Although not right in the center of town, you are only a few blocks from free public transportation. We would stay here again...but be warned...lots of flowered wallpaper....but it is charming....

A bit tacky overdone decor.
TV connect,disconnect on and off the entire stay, tiny little thing
Internet was for a time unconnected
Nice location near the center of Portland

Really not 5 stars.........................



Too much hype

This is the second time we have stayed at the Lion and the Rose and the hosts were as warm, welcoming and wonderful as we had remembered. Our little room, Avandel, with it's roomy private bath, was perfect for the two of us. The location of the inn is ideal for finishers of the Seattle to Portland bicycle event and allows easy access across the river to the train station and downtown. We will most certainly return for a 3rd, perhaps 4th, 5th... etc. visit in the years to come.

The Lion and Rose was recommended to us by a friend who'd stayed many times while visiting Portland. The place is in an excellent location for almost anything you want to do in Portland, and it's within walking distance to the free downtown trolley. Add to this, the inn itself is comfortable and inviting, it includes much of the period furniture, wall hangings, etc., and, it stocked with all the historical information, including photos. The inn keepers, Dusty and Steve, are engaging and ready to share all kinds of interesting details about the inn, things to do in Portland, and so on. Finally, the rooms are clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all the necessary amenities; plus, the sheets are soooo nice.

We highly recommend this place and will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Although lovely, the flowers in the Garden Room may be a little too much for most men :-)
