    Hotel undergoing some refurbishment, bathroom quite modern, bedroom decor a bit dated, clean though. Hallways need new flooring. Friendly enough staff. Floor in bar area very slippery. Hotel decorated well for Christmas.

    « Girls night away »

    The hotel is lovely and clean.The staff were all really friendly, helpful and nice. Breakfast was lovely. We were upgrade for free as it was my birthday. There not a lot to do in Worksop itself at night. We only went for a charity event.

    « Great »

    The rooms are spacious and well equipped .staff very friendly easy check in. Maybe the breakfast could be put in the dining room then you wouldn't feel like you doing a sponsored walk to get the food then back to dining room to eat it. Alot of steps in this hotel even though there is a lift. Thank you for a lovely visit. Will visit again

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Stopped for one night and was pleasantly surprised, the size, cleanliness and comfort was exceptional, the Ensuite Bathroom was bigger than the one we have at home, all the little extras included with the room where fantastic, of which many have been done away with at budget hotels charging more than this one. The bed was very comfortable, and the room layout was great. There is a restaurant on site the food was very good and plenty of choice for breakfast only criticism would be not a lot of choice on evening menu.

    « Nice stay »

    Arrived for a one night stay on a Saturday after an initial mess up on the room required the receptionist sorted us out.The room was an executive room well furnished but too warm,we had to turn the radiators off and open the windows at night. The service in the bar was a bit slow due to not enough staff on duty,but polite,did not do breakfast all in all a nice stay.

    « Not a good experience »

    We traveled to worksop form Kent for our wifes birthday and our Anniversary I booked 4 rooms and a suite for us we got given a executive so a downgrade and was offered £7 was not happy and explained to duty manager and staff but all they said was there got the info from the BW site (that is incorrect as it was changed from a suite to exec on the thursday by the hotel (would have been better to tell the truth) Also booked s meal in the Restaurant for 7 on the tues before when we got there was told that the restaurant was not open and we would have a meal in the Bar/grill. All said the quality of the food was excellent, rooms that we had where nice (but not the suite was booked ) Reception staff need to be more helpful and maybe tell the truth.

    « Weekend break in a comfortable hotel »

    We stayed two nights on a Groupon deal so it was good value with a free bottle of prosecco on arrival. The hotel has been refurbished in some areas so there are new carpets here and there. We stayed in room 203 ( an executive upgrade) , the bathroom fan was very noisy & needs replacing, The reception were friendly & efficient and booked us in quickly, the room is above the bar/restaurant area so suffers from noise at times. The door lock was very sticky and took several attempts to open the door. The carpet in our room was very tired and needs replacing, Some of the staff lacked direction and perhaps need further training and /or supervision. There are lots of steps and various levels so may not be suitable for people of limited mobility.

    « Central location »

    Stayed here for 2 nights to explore the area and further afield. We had a comfortable stay, helpful staff, good breakfast and free parking. The bar & restaurant area are pleasant, well maintained and comfortable. Very reasonable rates. This is the second time I've stayed at this Hotel.

    « Lovely stay »

    Great stay - we arrived Friday after work and check in was swift despite it being busy. Upon sitting on the bed we found it had a leg missing and a broken caster - nipped down stairs and was dealt with (very efficiently and effectively by the manager) she swapped us to a nearby room without quibble. Rhys the man on the desk during the night was very helpful too. Breakfast was good, table service Saturday morning and Buffett service Sunday morning. It was very noisy Saturday night as a wedding was taking place but that's to be expected. We will be back.

    On arrival, booking in was fast and friendly. Room was large with a king sized bed and even with the addition of a sofa bed as we requested. Bathroom was very spacious with a corner shower unit, good sized bath, very impressive.Plenty towels, very white and fluffy.

    Very extremely efficient check in and check out. Room was fine. Parking seemed ok for the hotel. I was not interested in a big meal, so in a few minutes walked over to a nearby Wetherspoons where I had one of their dishes with a beer. Very good value. Room was comfortable. Breakfast very nice.

    « A pleasant stay »

    Very spacious and well equipped room with an excellent bathroom Some noise issues with being town centre based but nothing significant. Standard of food and level of service both good. A good base for exploring the surrounding area (Creswell Crags in particular well worth a visit). Likely to return.

    Leaving this review as recently i left a bad review for the best western in derby and this hotel is such the complete opposite, its only fair. The hotel is right in the center of worksop so near shops etc, it looks like an old coach inn so has a old worldy feel but with a modern features. Our room was huge, modern and clean with a bathroom that could grace any more up market hotel. Staff were helful and organised and the food was fantastic and really cheap. I would certainly stay here again, well done the lion hotel, you are putting other best westerns to shame

    The hotel car park is not that easy to find. The post code directs the driver to the front of the hotel which can only be accessed on foot. The ample car park is at the rear. The hotel is on many levels so there are a large number of steps and stairways. The accommodation is good and the staff extremely competent and very helpful. The foot is adequate.

    « Very friendly staff »

    We received a friendly welcome at Reception. Our room was large and very comfortable - a little too warm but adjustable heating, windows that opened, and a thoughtful fan sorted that out. Good bathroom with lovely separate shower. We ate in the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the evening meal - the restaurant staff were attentive and friendly. The breakfast was excellent with the usual choice of cereals, toast, and full English. If in the area again, we would stay here.

    « Room 315 »

    Have used this hotel many times in the past. Good price for a town centre hotel. Very well appointed rooms in good order. Sky sports in the rooms is a bonus. Staff are friendly and efficient. Bar area clean and tidy. Car parking is free over night until 9am. Bit difficult to find rooms at first.

    « Very good given the options »

    I stay here due to work commitments. The rooms are nice for the money and the staff are attentive and friendly. I find the hotel to be very good given the town doesn't have a vast array of options for corporate travellers. I will stay again.

    « Weekend stay »

    We got a deal on living social for b&b,and had decided to have a evening meal on asking was told restaurant was closed only meals in the bar and this was a Friday night.breakfast was also not served in restaurant but in the bar, it was self service which was fine but you had to go into another room to get it.when I asked why it was in the bar I was told they were busy,but on the Sunday morning we notice people waiting for a table &they eventually opened the restaurant I don't understand why the couldn't just put the self service breakfast in the restaurant busy or not busy not everyone wants to eat in a bar!!!bedroom was newly refurbished,but some high dusting wouldn't have gone amiss look at the light fittings.bathroom good with bath &shower cubicle with nice toiletries.

    We booked the lion hotel for a christening of our son. We couldnt fault the service we recieved from the staff here. Nothing was too much trouble and the buffet that they put on was brilliant with many of our guests commenting. The function room was spacious with ample parking. Would definately recommend!

    We regularly stay at this lovely hotel positioned in area on the main street with shops bars etc on your doorstep. Free car parking is available on a first come first served basis we have always managed to get free car parking. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent amenities free WiFi is an added bonus.

    « Good value for money but be aware of any weddings taking place »

    A great overnight stay. The furnishings in the suite we had were outdated but the overall room was clean. Some rooms seem to have been refurbished to a more modern style. The only downside to staying in this hotel is that if there is a wedding party taking place it goes on until after midnight and the noise can be heard in many of the rooms!

    « Best Western - Only use if you don't want wifi or don't want to sleep. »

    I am a business traveler, I like my sleep and I like my WiFi. You can either have a 'ziplock' bed with a huge ridge down the middle making sleep impossible and WiFi, or a normal bed (no ridge) and no Wifi because apparently normal beds are only in family rooms and the Wifi doesn't extend that far.

    Great place to stay - either as a base for out and about or generally for a central break away. Lots to do in the area. Staff are attentive and do their best to make your stay enjoyable. We've been here a few times and never disappointed, prices very reasonable and rooms are very comfortable! Will stay again!

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Stayed at the Lion Hotel overnight after attending a wedding reception held there. Very welcoming, reception staff very friendly. Well decorated throughout. We had an executive room on the 2nd floor although it was a short flight of stairs to the 1st. We were offered a room on the 1st floor and the one on the 2nd floor. The 1st floor one was smaller than the 2nd floor one but very prettily decorated. My son and his partner had this room as the other one we were offered was much bigger, huge bathroom and very spacious bedroom with the added bonus of a water bed - totally unexpected. We had an excellent night's sleep. Breakfast was included and it was a self service buffet breakfast. Plenty of choice and very tasty. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Good for Worksop and V nice staff »

    This is a good hotel for Worksop but tends to have a lot of unruly children at weekends whose parents are attending wedding functions. The restaurant has a good menu and the staff are very pleasant. Service can be slow when they are busy. Nevertheless I like staying there.

    « Excellent rooms - high standard of fittings »

    Since our last visit the rooms appear to have been refurbished. Our room (208) was extremely well fitted, and the bathroom was first class. One of the most well thought out showers I have com across - right down to a full depth shelf behind the shower for shampoos etc which was lit so that everything can be easily found. The shower heads themselves (body shower and rain shower) were fully adjustable. This i alone made the stay a delight. The room itself was well furnished and equipped, with a large comfortable bed. Parking is good and on-site. There is also a large car park immediately behind the hotel (accessible from the rear). The staff in the hotel and bar were helpful and friendly. The restaurant food was adequate but of a lower standard than the hotel itself - hence four stars and not five. Although there was nothing to complain about, it need not exceed expectations in the way the accommodation did.

    « Worst Western hotel ? »

    When I pay for spending the night in a hotel, I mainly pay for the use of the bathroom. If necessary, I could also sleep in my car, eat in my car or in any restaurant, work on my laptop in my car or just outside, on a public bench. But I could never have a shower in my car ! That's why I prefer to spend the night in a hotel when I am travelling : in order to have a fresh shower in the morning and to start the day as a clean and well smelling person. That is why I am so disappointed in this hotel, that gave me a room where the shower was out of order ... and they knew it ! Worst Western hotels : shame on you ! When I mentioned the problem at the reception when checking out, I was told I should have complained about it earlier. When ? At the moment when I was about to take a shower ? Get dressed at 7 a.m. and go to the reception to ask for ... for what ? For a technician ... for another room ... a bucket of water ? Ridiculous. The hotel has to make sure all showers are functioning and if not, they at least have to inform the guest AND give a reasonable discount or just give the guest another room. By the way, my room was relatively clean, but could hardly be aerated. BAD HOTEL !

    « Good value. »

    We were visiting family in Worksop and they recommended that we stay at The Lion. I booked using booking.com who cancelled my booking because the credit card had expired. Fortunately the staff confirmed that my booking was still in the system - thank you. The receptionist Hayley, was warm and welcoming. We arrived early but she kindly checked and our room was ready. The room was large, clean and minimalist - perfect. It had everything we required and the bathroom ( shower) was one of the best we've experienced in the UK. The room was hot so we slept with the windows open - big mistake, the early morning traffic noise was horrendous. I'd recommend a room at the back of the hotel. Our negative - (I'm sorry to have one) was the total lack of customer service we experienced in the breakfast room! We arrived at 0900 ( having been told service ended at 0930). There was no milk, or Orange juice. We wanted cereal and had to ask for spoons with which to eat it. We had to ask for toast. We were never offered cooked breakfast and I had to seek out the waitress from the kitchen to ask for some tea. It totally ruined the overhaul impression which we had formed. All staff to that point, had been exceptionally friendly and helpful - she was neither and let you down.

    « 50th Birthday Evening meal »

    Arrived at 7 with 8 guests. We had a small lounge area to ourselves. We chose from the menu and stayed in the lounge drinking cocktails, beers & Cider till our food was ready. The drinks were fairly priced, not expensive. Like other places. The food was excellent! The staff were friendly and helpful.

    « One night stay »

    As a single traveller, I was pleasantly surprised to have a double room for a reasonable price. Excellent room - clean and with all the facilities you need for a one night stay. My one (very small) complaint would be that the walls seem to be very thin and I heard revellers bouncing off the walls coming back from their wedding celebrations. If I was back in Worksop I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Arrived for an over night stay at the weekend,checked In at 3pm,the room was adequate and the bed was comfy and the shower was ok. I ordered food at the bar and the staff were excellent and the food was excellent ,we did not have breakfast as we are not into buffets,so we walked down the road to a Weatherspoons pub. The only major gripe was that if there is a wedding on it can get very busy at the bar,more staff please!!. Now the bad comment while we were drinking in the bar and also the back bar two scruffy men both obviously drunk or on drugs were served drinks by the bar staff and then sat down drinking and mumbling ,they smelt horrible. Later I asked a member of the bar staff why these men were not refused service he just said that we had to serve them because they had money on them,REALLY!!!. I left a comment when I checked out but have since received no comments back,in future I may think twice before I go back if this is a regular occurrence . Mr D Neil

    We booked rooms here by chance and what a pleasant surprise! The food smelled delicious upon entering and the front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. The bed in our room was a water bed, which I had never experienced and wow! What a comfortable bed! The other two rooms we booked were very well appointed and nicely renovated. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone near the area!

    The rooms here are really good and clean but the room we just stayed in had a big bathroom with a bidet, wonderful. The staff are very friendly and always happy to help. We only had breakfast here this time and it was buffet and they don't do fried eggs only scrambled but it was good. No doubt we will be back.

    « Very average lunch »

    Came for lunch here and found it to be just ok but I won't rush back. We had a pulled pork burger and steak baguette both very reasonable for 6.50 with chips and salad. However, most of the food seemed to be pre prepared and chips just those frozen ones you throw in the fryer. The salad looked like it had seen better days and had a weird white substance on which I assume to be dressing that was put on hours ago and gone all Claggy. The contents of the burger tasted nice but again it all seemed like pre cooked ready meal stuff. The steak in the burger was tender and tasty. For dessert we shared a chocolate brownie with banoffee ice cream. To my complete surprise the brownie was overcooked and very dry. You needed the ice cream to make it moist. I think this is shameful that a chef is willing to serve this, especially for 3.95! The Diet Coke we also had was a bit strange tasting but welcome after that brownie!!

    « First class weekend B&B package. »

    The hotel staff were all friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The rooms were of a good standard, well furnished, clean and serviced daily. The hotel whilst older was well presented. The hotel if approached from Bridge Street does not look so appealing as the rear entrance. The restaurant serves a good range of food and it is pleasing that a wide range of British food is on offer. Breakfast is buffet style, with a good selection.

    Stayed in June for two nights, checked in to discover we'd been given the Rufford suite, very nice. The Lion really is a nice place to stay, the staff are all pleasant, and helpful, the room was ace, nice size,with a wonderful water bed. Breakfast was spot on once again, really can't fault the hotel, or staff we met. Highlly recommended. There's a market right outside the front doors on Friday and Saturday, some nice little shops, and half a dozen good pubs. We visit at least once a year for a chill out weekend, love it.

Good location, good food, great rooms, helpful staff, free parking and free wifi what more could you ask for an overnight business stay in the heart of Worksop.

    « Sunday night delight »

    Arrived and easily found the car park at the rear. Realised we had forgotten our voucher through which we had booked, but any concerns were blown away by the receptionist. A delightful welcome and room 206 allocated to us. A flight of stairs took us from the reception area to the room corridor and we were delighted by the room. A large sitting area is closest to the door, then a king sized bed with window beyond. No view and a little disappointingly no fridge. However the bathroom is a delight with both bath and walk-in shower, all beautifully tiled and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room to store luggage and clothes. The breakfast provision was good. The main course is cooked to order and it consequently is a much hotter experience than we get in buffet-type breakfasts. Though I have to admit we both felt the full English and the fish option were slightly over-cooked. I must admit that our experience far out-classed our expectation, and we would hope to stay again if we are in the area. We thoroughly and strongly recommend this hotel.

    Location is ideal if you fancy a walk around the town. Wednesday market day and it's right outside the hotels front door. The hotel its self is to a high standard with helpful staff , I try to stay here when in the area but it's so good it's booked up most of the time so would recommend booking in advance.

    This room was dated which was a disappointment considering the look of the bar an hotel. But the staff was friendly and attentive . Helped us with any queries with had . Although the breakfast was nice abit pricy tho. We had our own bar tender and he was called Matt he was very attentive and made us all feel welcome the young lads was happy with him as they thought he looked like Jamie vardy so they was impressed with that he was also very polite to them and had a laugh with them

    « Good food poor customer service.The location and decor »

    The location and decor are both very good. The food in the grill restaurant was very good too. Breakfast was good on both days that we stayed. However, we had an issue with the WC not working correctly and that caused a saga that hopefully now after corresponding with senior management has now been resolved for future guests.

    We were very pleased with our weekend stay. Just one point that needs to improve and that is the service in the 114 restaurant. This is a shame as the food was good. Our room was on the second floor and was very quiet. However there was no lift.

    Stayed 1 night at the Red Lion on 1st July on a groupon deal checking in staff were helpful and friendly as were all the staff we came into contact with.The room we were in (209)was great, very spacious and spotlessly clean and so was the bathroom with walk in shower and bath.The hotel is ideally situated close to both the 6screen cinema and shops and market we ate in the hotel's 114 bar and grill (already reviewed) breakfast was brilliant and everything was freshly cooked to order. Will certainly use this hotel again and highly recommend.

    « Excellent in ALMOST every way. »

    Attending a nearby weekend function, and not wishing to meet the inflated charges for on site accommodation my wife and I selected The Lion as our base. As it turned out a wise choice with almost everything exceeding our expectations. The "executive" room was a delight. Spotlessly clean, modern, and very well equipped - air conditioned, usual tea making and ironing equipment and in room WiFi (free). The bathroom was superb - not much smaller than our lounge at home and with both a 7' bath and a separate shower enclosure! The only downsides were due to the Lion being a town centre facility - the results being a severe lack of car parking (a little inconvenient for a blue badge holder). The reception staff were superb however and fitted us in when required. The bar and grill style restaurant was a great surprise - expecting the usual bought in and heated fare we were served quite the opposite. A steak and mushroom pie, fully double the expected size with an astonishing amount of meat within. It turned out the food was made fresh on site by somebody who knew what they were doing! Even "our" waiter was able to discuss the finer points of pastry (with my wife I might add) Pub grub setting - best restaurant food!. One further point of note - on returning fairly late on Saturday night we were treated to an unintended free cabaret (again a consequence of being a bit of a night spot) we found the garden area of the Lion infested with groups go screeching "young ladies" well loaded with copious quantities of "falling down water". I mention this with amusement and NOT as a complaint. Peace reigned inside.

    Visiting Worksop was a trip down memory lane and gave us the opportunity to meet long-standing friends. Staying at The Lion was the ideal base - so much so that we hope to visit again in 2017. The whole thing worked perfectly.

    « An excellent weekend at The Best Western Lion Hotel »

    A great weekend staff were helpful and courteous. The breakfast and service were second to none. The room was nice and comfortable. The hotel is in the city centre were there are a number of good real ale pubs which we like. There is also lovely walks or runs in our case down the canal or through the local park.

    « 4th visit »

    Our fourth visit on a Groupon voucher. We upgraded to be in room 208 which we had been in previously and we love it. A bit disappointed not to have dressing gowns available this time though. Room is lovely however very spacious and an excellent bathroom. We had a meal at the hotel like we usually do but was disappointed not to get 20% off as we had done previously. There were quite a few flies in the restaurant due to a door being open and we had to ask for it to be closed. Restaurant was very quiet for a weekend evening. Me and my husband had the steak and mushroom pie which was nice however we found the pastry a bit hard on the bottom. Breakfast was very nice no complaints. Overall still a nice hotel to stay.

    « The best food in Worksop »

    Me my husband and 3 children went into the Lion hotel tonight for a meal. My children had kids meals which were a good size for the price paid, I had the steak and mushroom pie which was amazing and chocolate brownie with banoffee ice cream. All the staff are professional and the menu has a good variety at good prices. Can't wait to eat here again soon

    « peace in the town centre ! »

    Our son has moved with the family to Worksop so we looked for a hotel less than 3 miles from his house, We were surprised that it was town centre but quiet !. The room was good, the location excellent, parking easy and most of all, all the staff were helpful and smiling and welcoming. we had breakfast which was OK., could have been slightly better with a greater range of food. All in all great and we shall go again when we next visit, which we shall do regularly !

    Stayed here in March. 6 couples for a relaxing weekend away. The Lion was spotlessly clean and the food was 10/10. The rooms were immaculate very clean and spacious. Set in a lovely location easy access to a wonderful continental market and a great shopping centre. Cannot fault it one bit. Will definitely return to this superb hotel and surroundings.

    « Great base for sherwood pines »

    My sister and I stayed for two nights room 313, we had concerts on the Friday and Saturday nights. The room was perfect, if not a little warm, the staff were very friendly and courteous. We ate in the hotel on the first night, the food was lovely and very reasonably priced, drinks weren't overpriced either as you find in most hotels. A taxi would cost you about £20 each way to the Sherwood Forest venue if you don't want to drive. There was two functions going on on the Saturday night and we weren't disturbed at all, which was very impressive. You can do a lot worse than staying here, we enjoyed it so much, we're planning another trip just so we can stay again

    « Very poor breakfast this stay »

    « The worlds hottest hotel »

    I stayed here (room 309) with my wife and daughter in June. I used to live in Worksop so I know that this is probably the best hotel locally. Generally the hotel was nice and the people helpful however the room was the hottest I have ever stayed in with no way of cooling it down other than opening the windows - not much help in June. The other problem with this is that the rooms overlook the entrance or exit to the hotel and their are guests (and staff) outside smoking literally ALL NIGHT. You would think that they would have put some signs up or fitted some air conditioning to solve this problem so my wife, daughter and I had about 3 hours broken sleep. They were apologetic when we checked out but it was with an almost 'yep we know attitude'.....not much more than that. ......not sure where to stay next time.

    Visited Lion Hotel on Wednesday 15th June for our wedding Meal. The meal was excellent with loads of choice and fantastic food. The staff were brilliant warm friendly and welcoming. A lovely day and I would definitely recommend the Lion 10 out of 10 Thank you

    « Wedding & overnight stay »

    Daughters wedding reception, great day made better by attentive staff (especially Gary). The food was good and brought out to over fifty guest in quick fashion so nobody was waiting & the waiters / waitresses knew your order (good job really as most had forgotten what they had ordered). Evening buffet and bar was up to the same standard with very reasonable bar prices. Our room & bathroom (Manvers) was clean and better than expected. Would stay again without doubt if not for the fact we live only six miles away but stayed over so we could enjoy the night and have a drink. Well done at the Lion and thank you for a great day.

    « Always a nice stay »

    We have been here a few times now as a Groupon deal, but have always upgraded to an executive room as they are generous in space, have large comfy beds and a large bathroom that has a separate shower cubicle. Staff are always friendly and helpful, good food that's not overpriced and a good buffet breakfast. Well worth a visit!

    « Business Accomodation June 2016 »

    Staff all friendly and helpful. Air conditioning in the room I booked was not available which made sleeping conditions a little uncomfortable. I booked on line including dinner, bed and breakfast. Only one off the staff knew how much the meal allowance was and they tried to charge me £17 extra for the room when I checked out. This was sorted out satisfactorily.

    Lovely hotel in the centre of worksop, we were in a large executive room, lovely comfy king size bed and large bathroom with super separate shower, we ate in the bar/restaurant could not fault the evening meal quality and presentation was perfect, staff all pleasant and helpful,the only thing we were not impressed with the old benches at back of the hotel which was a lovely sun trap, a couple of table and chairs would be ideal, having told the manager our concerns he agreed and i am sure he will make the change, if we are in the area again would definitely stay at the Lion Hotel.

    « Nice stop over »

    We were due to spend one night in a different Best Western Hotel, but Helen at central reservations managed to get us in here for the night in question. Our room was very nice with a super king bed which was very comfortable, a walk in shower as well as a bath, a good size TV and a nice settee to sit on to watch it, there was also air con which was handy as quite a warm night. We had dinner in the restaurant which was nice and reasonable, and breakfast the next day was buffet style and good. There is parking either side of the hotel at the back of it. As it was a Saturday there was a market running down the high street, when you walked out of the hotel at the front. Only slight thing that upset us, was a 40th party that went on till past midnight with thumping music, and then some very loud mouthed woman shouting along the corridor, at about 1 in the morning. All the staff were nice.

    « Clumber suite »

    We stayed for 1 night with our 2 children in the clumber suite. It was perfect for our family as it has 2 rooms plus kitchen, lounge. It is a long way from reception ( we counted 9 doors) but was quiet, had good black out curtains, and was really clean. Had a really friendly welcome as we arrived, and all the staff were excellent. They even posted back something we left behind. Would definitely recommend for a family.

    « Groupon Weekend »

    Hotel is really warm. Windows do open, but for a nice weekend in May this was too hot in the room, if you go in the Summer, you may overheat. Breakfats is a buffet that you collect and then make you way to the bar. If you see the pasties there, get them while you can, they won't be there for long and take ages to be replaced. A reasonable priced hotel with a reasonable service.

    « Excellent Value »

    A group of us stayed here for a wedding in Worksop in May 2016. It was a great stay overall, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the price was exceptionally good value. Breakfast was tasty and well stocked. The bar was good and drinks cheap. The service put some hotels 3x the price to shame. Two of us couldn't get a taxi in time to get to the wedding and one of the hotel staff offered to drive us to the church herself!

    « good position to local road links »

    Had two nights here split over several days. First night was good nights sleep, second night in different room had disturbed sleep, mattress's were worn out and had them sticking in stomach and back, I say mattress's because it was two singles fixed together, I was expecting a double bed! My wife has mobility problems and found it hard to get around the dining area for dinner and breakfast, too many steps. We were on the ground floor, which was good, but had lots of fire doors to pass through to get to room. No disabled parking spot, and very short on parking spaces in general. Not as good a Hotel as the other Best Western we stayed at on our onward journey. Shame, otherwise our stay would have been o.k, food was good and some of the staff were very helpful.

    The hotel is at one end of Bridge Street (a long pedestrian street) - TomTom was slightly confused!! It is very convenient. The room called Rufford was large and well laid out. It was very clean. The bed was a water bed - very comfortable, but slightly awkward to get in and out of. The food was good and reasonable priced. The staff were friendly. We will stay there again next time we are up in that area.

The restaurant was good value for money - nice food although very busy on Friday night and we had wait a while for the food to arrive. Worth waiting for though. Breakfast at the weekend was buffet style, laid out in one room - the tables for eating at were in a different room - a bit of a trek. Breakfast on Monday much nicer - waitress service at the table.

    « Amazingly good. »

    Stayed here for our wedding night as we wanted to be in or near the town, but wanted a comfortable place to sleep. I booked on line, and asked if it was possible to have a 'nice room' as it was a special occasion. The room we had was lovely, immaculately clean, and beautifully presented, I had asked for flowers, which were ordered by the hotel, and were wonderful. Interestingly, the best price I found for the room was on the hotels own website, and for the quality of the accomodation, was excellent value. We didn't eat in the hotel, as we had eaten elsewhere, but we did have a drink in the bar area. The bar was spotlessly clean, the staff polite and friendly, and the atmosphere calm and welcoming........unlike many of the bars in the area!! My only slight negative was the temperature in the room......it was very, very warm, and I couldn't figure out the controller for the aircon unit! Not a major problem, I'm sure if I had felt the need, the staff would have helped out. All in all, I was very pleasantly surprised, the hotel looks rather plain from the outside, but inside the staff, service and quality is great.

Also an added bonus was the bar prices, very reasonable, a nice change. Thanks to all for a great little break

    « Comfort and Space away from home »

    Because I work away from home on a lot of my projects and for two or three nights a week, I don't 'just want a bed', I want space to allow me to feel that I'm in more than a bedroom. All the rooms I stayed in had a sofa/chair and table which allowed me to chill. The beds were very comfortable too.

    Have stayed at The Lion on a few occasions, usually on a Groupon. This time we were attending a family wedding. I got a special online Winter Rate (£57) for a double room with breakfast included. I requested an updated room in the original part of the building and we were upgraded to an Executive suite which was roomy and comfortable with plenty of windows and light. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend a stay at The Lion. The breakfast is always excellent with good quality local ingredients. The bathroom was clean but a little dated. I had a sneak peek into room 203 where a friend was staying and this had a very modern updated bathroom.

    Stayed here earlier this year with my partner nice big room on the ground close to the car park. Went on a deal that included a meal on the first night which was ok.

    « Big party »

    Came here for a big party. There was about 25/30 of us and the food was just edible. The fish cakes tasted like chip shop fish cakes. Really bland. Just that and spinach no sauces or anything so it was just really dry. The salmon was the same really bland dry salmon veg and potatoes. No sauce. I stole my boyfriends horseradish. He had the beef and it was just over cooked. Looked like sandwich beef. And the gravy was powdery. Tasted exactly like chip shop gravy. Everything just screamed. NOT FRESH! My sister had the nut roast which was rock solid. Literally rock solid. She didn't touch it but I tried it and it was probably the worst thing I've ever tasted.... It's a shame because I've heard good things from other people. Maybe it's because we were a big party. Maybe they can't cope with that amount... Or maybe.. They had already got our money So standards no longer mattered. The staff are great though. Really friendly, polite and smiley. The three out of five is purely for them.

    My husband and I recently stayed here for one night prior to our holiday at Center Parcs. We used a Groupon deal which was a very reasonable price for bed and breakfast. All of the staff that we met were very friendly and helpful. We received an upgraded room which was spacious and very comfortable. The room had Sky TV channels which my husband appreciated so that he could watch the sport. We had a meal in the bar in the evening which was good and a fair price. The drinks were also cheaper than our local area which was an added bonus. Breakfast the next day was also of a good standard, including fresh fruit salad and all the trimmings of a "full English". We have already booked again for December and we are looking forward to a return visit.

    After reading most of the reviews for this hotel I was really looking forward to going.....it was a birthday treat for one of my friends who is an amazing support to me as my health is very poor and I am virtually housebound. It was a Groupon offer and I rang to enquire if the Hotel and restaurant catered for people with mobility issues for myself and was assured that they do....WRONG!!! There were steps and stairs everywhere with hardly any stair rails so I struggled to get about. Steps up and down to restaurants so I was unable to get my breakfast so my friend got it for me and juggled hers and mine with no offer of help from staff. They did give us a ground floor room but again lots of walking and then steps etc to the bar and restaurant. This left me feeling vulnerable and dependant on my friend Jenny who was happy to help but shouldn't have had to. We had no idea where the restaurant was and was given rushed directions from a member of staff and we actually bumped into others searching for it as well. There was a lift but steps to the breakfast room again. My diet is very restricted but again I was assured on booking that they could cater for me but choice was very limited with virtually no desserts. I had booked a table and surprise surprise it was up some more stairs but I chose a different table without having to climb them. As a Mystery shopper for various companies before I became ill, the customer service was very poor and the lack of facilities for people with mobility problems is practically non existent...goodness knows how I would have managed had I used my wheelchair because of all the steps /stairs...I used my walking stick but still struggled....assistance from staff would have improved my feelings but there was none. Needless to say neither of us will be returning which is a shame because had it met with my issues we would have returned several times as and when my health allowed....

I had no issues with the room this stay and the room was lovely, clean and well decorated. Breakfast was hot and delicious. No issues at all and I will always book here when I'm in the area.

    « Great stay at a good price. »

    I stayed here on a groupon deal. Bed and breakfast with a bottle of prosseco for £45.00. I drove around for a few minutes as the satnav took me to the rear of the hotel and I didn't see the sign which was not illuminated. Car parking at the hotel is very limited but there is a big public car park at the back. Checking in I was allocated a room on the second floor, some distance away. I was very pleased to find it was a suite, very clean, big television, lovely warm shower.........perfect. Popped out for a few beers and back for a great sleep. Nice breakfast in the morning, although the food is in a different room to the dining area. Staff were all friendly and I would have no hesitation in visiting again.

    Well we have just got back from our 5 th visit to the lion hotel . And once again we had a fab time . We had an executive room which was lovely complete with fridge . We had a meal in the restaurant on Sunday night which was spot on yet again . The staff although are nearly all young were very helpful and friendly . The room was spotless . We had a buffet breakfast on Sunday morning because it was full but on Sunday morning if was served by the staff in the other restaurant and I must say that I prefer that option but can understand when it's full it's not possible . But I would like to make a special mention to Gemma who is the manager and who yet again looked after us completely . So thanku Gemma and we will see you again soon . I would highly reccomend this hotel

    stayed here 19th Feb to 21 Feb a Friday and Saturday night. Hotel was really busy with functions but this did not for one moment impact on our stay. The staff were lovely, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and warm. Shower piping hot and good water pressure. We ate in the hotel on both nights, food was good and plentiful ( we couldn't finish the portions provided) the prices of the food and drinks were really good.

    Service 5* Room 5* Food 5* We have stayed at the Lion on numerous occasions. It is ideally located for us at the top of Worksop town centre as the Savoy cinema is very close by (less than a 5 min walk). We always feel really at home staying here. We stayed in room 308 on this occasion; an executive suite with 4 poster bed and seating area. Couldn't fault anything, except maybe the pillows were a little hard for our taste, but everyone has their own preference. The room was lovely and quiet and spotlessly clean. We loved the modern feel to the room and en-suite bathroom which had a double shower as well as a bath. We like the fact there was fridge to put some drinks / bottles in that we had bought with us. The TV was so easy to work! A little thing I know, but its only when you have stayed in a lot of hotels that you appreciate something small like this. Lovely seating area with a table and Wifi worked no problem. The breakfasts are consistently fabulous; cooked to order and we love the vegetarian sausages!

    « Lion Hotel 05.02.16 to 07.02.16 »

    We returned to this hotel in Feb 2016 after visiting in Jan 2015. The second visit was very disappointing when compared to the exceptional stay we had in 2015. The whole experience was below par. The evening dining was poor. There was no option to use the restaurant, therefore we were directed to the bar area. We were not shown to a table but merely advised to pick where we wanted to sit. The bar appeared to have changed and now has a sofa area in front of the fireplace. This seating was overflowing with people on a night out who appeared to be meeting there before moving on. Some of whom had sprawled on the surrounding tables. The food was generally disappointing. My wife has an intolerance to garlic, consequently she was unable to select any of the starters due to the garlic content and was offered no alternative. For mains I selected the meat pie which I would recommend. My wife ordered the chicken. This meal was a very small portion to say the least. The desserts were misleading. There was a baked apple and egg custard. This suggests to me an egg custard in pastry with some baked apple garnish. It was actually a baked apple scooped out and filled with warm custard. Several of the diners were as disappointed as I was and returned their baked apple. Breakfast the following morning was a buffet located in a side room near the reception. Guests then had to walk quite a distance into the bar area to find a seat. The tables were set for an evening meal and no spoons were anywhere to be seen. We had to ask staff twice before we were eventually handed spoons to eat cereals. We eventually found that tea and coffee was also self service on the edge of the bar in a very ad hoc fashion and again without spoons. On the Saturday evening, we had water rapidly coming into the bathroom through the ceiling light fitting. I reported this personally to the reception staff. The water eventually stopped, but no visit was made to our room to ensure the safety of electrics etc or to assist with the water all over the floor. On the whole, this was a very disappointing visit to what was previously a great hotel. I am not saying that I would never return to this hotel as we do enjoy visiting Worksop, but I would consider alternatives. I don't know whether the hotel has changed hands, but the changes made to the general running of the hotel certainly fell way below our expectations. The changes have spoilt it.

    Myself and some friends went to see the ex-Arsenal and England footballer do an evening at the hotel. It was my first visit and I was vert impressed. The hotel has a decent sized function room, the food we had was excellent and really good value. The bar prices were very reasonable for a hotel, 5 drinks for about £15! The staff were friendly and the toilets were fresh & clean. And the evening was great fun, a great speaker and well organised. Loved it.

    Upgraded ourselves to an executive room on arrival with no problems and rally pleased we did. The room was large and spacious, well decorated and with all mod cons. The bathroom was very nicely done, it even gave us some ideas on how to decorate our bathroom at home. We used the bar area one evening and had a meal in there as well which was ok, pretty standard. In the mornings at breakfast we were provided with news papers and the waiting staff took our breakfast order immediately. Arrived in good time and was very good. All in all, decent hotel.

    « Another great stay »

    This was our third visit to this hotel, but the first time with our dog. We have always upgraded before, but this was not possible with the dog, so I wondered what a "standard" room would be like. The room overlooked the courtyard/car park, but was quiet. As usual, a comfy bed in a clean warm room. Tea making facilities good, including biscuits. The room was more spacious than I had expected... plenty of room for the dog's bed etc. The young staff members were all very polite and attentive without being intrusive. In particular, Matt who served our evening meal, Kimberley at breakfast and Harriett on reception. Since our last visit, the dining facilities had been altered, so that the cooked breakfast was ordered and tailored to your needs, instead of a serve yourself option. There was an excellent choice of cereals and fruit, croissants, jam etc. I was particularly impressed with the "fruit cocktail" having had some in other hotels where they consisted of a couple of citrus fruits and the odd grape! We reserved a table for dinner and noticed that the dining area had also been refurbished. The food was well prepared, hot and tasty. I had the chicken breast with sweet potato mash and a side order of stilton sauce. My partner ordered the steak which was cooked to perfection. A nice touch was the crispy onion garnish instead of the usual onion rings. Another lovely break... we'll certainly visit again.

    « Good choice for Worksop »

    Pretty central in the town so handy for most things. The check in was swift and easy. Room was clean, warm and comfortable. Double bed was made up of 2 single mattresses both a big saggy in the middle but still a decent nights sleep was had. Even though the hotel wasn't too busy the car park was full, there's a large pay car park right next to the entrance should the hotel spaces be full. I thought the breakfast was exceptionally good, well the coffee was a bit thin and tasteless but otherwise easily as good as I've had in a 5 star place. We paid less than £45 for a Saturday night in January 2016 - great value for money.

    « Worst Western »

    Cold room on arrival in January. A long way to rooms with no help offered to help with bags. Breakfast until 9 and everything cleared from dining room by 9.15. we were on a family get together so a later breakfast on a week day would have been nice. As room was clearly only used for breakfast, what was the rush ? A Manager who clearly does not give a damn and does not communicate. Uncomfortable beds, changed rooms and suggested manager come and see if he could sleep on the bed, springs coming through. The Manager did come to the room and made remarks about new beds being arranged. When I told him that didn't help me, he left the room. I saw manager as I checked out and in the bar he did not even acknowledge me. Very rude. I will never stay in Best Western again. I remembered that we used to stay at Scechley Grange and stopped because of beds and that also was Best Western. As usual cleaning staff unsung hero's, clean. Next night stayed in an Ibis lovely and warm, great comfortable bed.

    « Great Location. Lovely rooms. Friendly staff. »

    Stayed here for 2 nights in July last year & we are returning for a weekend at the end of the month. Great central location, ideal for getting around Worksop, with Shops, pubs & dining right on the door step. Worksop itself is a great base for visiting local places such as Sherwood Forest etc... & Creswell Crags is a must!! We upgraded to a suite. Room as lovely. Impeccably clean with lots of space. Large bed, flatscreen, small fridge, sofa, desk, closet etc, with a large bathroom equipped with both bath & large walk-in shower which could fit 2 people comfortably ?? Decor was also nice and modern. Pub downstairs was nice, with a well stocked bar & great food. Breakfast in the morning was decent, buffet style but everything was nice and hot & hadn't been sitting there forever. Free parking which was great however the carpark is very small so parking was limited (there was also a wedding on whilst we stayed which would have played a part to be fair) but there a pay and display all but 20 feet away. Best of all was the staff. Everyone was super friendly & helpful. Couldn't do enough for you. All in all a great stay, which is why we are going back.

    We just had an excellent New Years Eve at the Lion Hotel. The function room looked really nice and the tables were beautifully decorated, all the pre-ordered wine was waiting for us on the table etc. The food was well presented and really tasty and was served by polite and prompt staff who regularly checked to ensure that we were enjoying everything. We were particularly impressed with the magician, who was extremely amusing and even left you with a little memento of the magic to take home :) Whilst it was busy it didn't feel too overcrowded, unlike many venues that tend to really overbook for NYE. There was plenty of room to get a drink from the bar or have a dance in the disco area. Will definitely be going back for New Years again and will bring some friends as well.

    « Good stay »

    I stayed here following a work night out, rather than travelling home. Whilst the welcome at check-in was warm and friendly, and the room was clean and adequate for my stay, you just can't help but feel this place suffers from a lack of competition in the local area. I felt a sense of complacency, whereby staff don't need to and therefore don't go the extra mile to look after guests, which is a shame as it has the opportunity to be an excellent hotel

    « Adequate »

    Staff friendly...room average with good newly revamped bathroom. First impressions could be improved just by putting some framed pictures on the clean but dank corridor walls leading to rooms. Breakfast was mediocre as cooked ingredients not best quality..ie Sausage and bacon. Most disappointing was that after returning to hotel just after twelve at night bar closed and night porter only able to offer us a drink to take to our room. Considering this was a Saturday night, the week before xmas in a town centre, being told the bar closes at 11pm is quite pathetic.... Cetainly would not return....

    « Walked out! »

    Called in this afternoon for a quiet cosy drink with my husband before going to the cinema. I went to the bar to order our drinks. I was told to take a seat and somebody would come and take our order. I explained that we didn't require food just drinks and was assured that somebody would come and take our drinks order from our table which at the time I thought was a nice touch. The restaurant/bar was very quiet with only 3 other tables occupied. We waited 10 minutes and nobody even acknowledged we were sat there ! Not wanting to miss our film , we got up and walked out. Terrible customer service for a best western and spoilt our afternoon out without the kids as we didn't have time to go elsewhere. Won't be returning. Disappointed.

The hotel is located in an off the road position, quite central for the shops, cinema & bars & restaurants. The ambience is pleasant, all the staff were friendly and very helpful. The room had everything you needed, was exceptionally warm, & a lovely comfortable bed. There was a car park to the rear of the hotel, plenty of spaces when we arrived on a a Friday afternoon.

    Everything about this hotel was wonderful. I'd certainly never look to stay anywhere else in Worksop. The first time in the area I stayed at the Travelodge which could have doubled as the Bates Motel. The Lion (Best Western) was completely out of this world. Stunning.

    « A great little find »

    Stayed here as we were visiting Lincoln Christmas market but couldn't get anywhere to stay close by, opted to look a little further afield. The staff, particularly the receptionist and the evening barman were excellent; both very cheerful and ,made us very welcome. We stayed in a suite which had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in and a huge bathroom that you had to enter into via steps. Bar prices are good and although we didn't eat there in the evening, the food looked wonderful and nicely presented. Some of the reviews mention the walk from the breakfast room to the dining room (it takes all of 5 seconds even if you dawdle) so don't let this put you off. The breakfast is a buffet style affair and was hot and tasty, the sausages weren't the usual "catering" type. Worth visiting again.

    « Very impressed! »

    We have recently returned from a weekend break at this hotel. We booked it using a Groupon voucher, which was very reasonable, so we weren't really expecting too much! But we were pleasantly surprised! The structure of the whole hotel seems quite ramble, so it took us a little while to find our room through all the nooks and crannys, but when we did find it, it was homely, clean and comfortable....huge bed! A few minutes after we had settled into the room, the receptionist rang us in the room to check that everything was satisfactory...service that we loved! The breakfast was very good, served to us on the first day and buffet service on the second. Even though the hotel is situated in the town, it was extremely quiet and we slept without any problem of noise. Service throughout the whole weekend was excellent.....there was really nothing we could fault! Would definitely recommend!

    This is the 3rd time we've stayed here and because there weren't many in we had breakfast cooked and served to us, previously it's been a buffet. We were told when it's too busy they can't serve everyone. We stayed in room 210 and it had a huge bathroom with a bidet, very good. The room was big and so was the bed. It's a great place to stay and food is good and as it's at the top of the main street everything is on hand. We had a good and quiet sleep as usual. Will no doubt be back. Thank you.

    The hotel has upgraded some of its rooms to a very good standard, unfortunately the other rooms and corridors look very tired and the level of service from the staff fit more with the tired dated rooms than with the new look rooms. Hotel guests are a very low priority next to weddings and private hire. The Restaurant was closed for the night and the private function room let our to a wedding group that made a lot of noise . Breakfast was served in a small room and guests were expected to carry food and drinks from that room into the bar for consumption .

    The hotel is centrally located and the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was a good size but the bed was very creaky.

    « Average in Worksop »

    2 Nights for business. £123.33 for 2 nights The room was ok but a bit shabby and tired. The room was cleaned whilst I stayed but cups and a glass left dirty. The bar and restaurant are nice and modern but the staff are so busy in their own conversation that you feel you are definitely intruding in their domain. At breakfast a waiter completely ignored me, and continued serving other guests. I eventually realised that I wasn't sitting at one of his tables when a waitress came to serve me. The individual staff here are quite friendly and helpful but there seems to be a very odd hierarchy in place. Also not quite happy with the £74.00 taken by card as cover for charge-to-room. The receptionist insisted I paid the whole amount on the same card and the £74.00 had already been charged. I don't think this is quite right.

    « Still very good »

    Stayed here again with a Wowcher, B & B, great value for money. I think the rooms have been refurbished since our last stay in September last year, nice & very comfortable. Our room (113) had a huge double zip-link bed which was fab, bath with over shower, everything clean & tidy, always lots of tea, coffee & biscuits. Only one problem, which I forgot to mention, there was a very noisy, extractor fan, I think it could only have been the fan, in one of the adjoining bathrooms, which fortunately didn't spoil our sleep but very irritating. We had our evening meal here which was very tasty & breakfast was also very good. Wouldn't hesitate to return & recommend.

    « Leisure visit »

    Booked two nights. Had first night last. Room very nice, hotel overall clean and welcoming, staff friendly and helpful. However I have just had the worst breakfast experience in any hotel I have visited (I am a regular user of the Best Western Hotels). Buffet breakfast which was in a totally different room to where you ate it. Had to carry breakfast through reception area, down some steps, through bar area into restaurant. Only eggs on buffet were scrambled, you could order fried or poached but by the time they came breakfast was either cold or finished. Decided to have a croissant which was hard and dry. Very disappointing altogether

    « Great hotel »

    This was a Wowcher deal, and my first stay in a Best Western Hotel. I would definatley use Best Western again. There's not much happening in Worksop, which is a shame, there a couple of nice coffee shops and a couple of pubs. It isnt far from other attractions though, such as Sherwood Forest, which we fully took advantage of on the Sunday. The hotel itself was lovely. The room was huge, and really quiet. The staff were great. Approachable and couldnt do enough for you. We decided to stay at the hotel on the Saturday night, and have a meal in the restaurant and drinks att he bar. The food was really reasonably priced and delicious, my boyfriend had rump steak which was cooked to perfection. We had no issues with waiting for service. We spent the rest of the evening in the hotel bar. You'd expect the drinks to be expensive with it being a hotel? Wrong! This hotel does not rip you off!! After a great nights sleep, we went down to a really good quality breakfast. If we were to ever stay in this area again, we would stay here. You wont be dissapointed!

    « Fab upgrade! »

    Having booked an executive room we were upgraded as Best Western members to an available suite where we found a five piece bathroom and a huge waterbed. .....what luxury! Greatly appreciated as my birthday was during this stay.Our stay was comfortable and surprisingly undisturbed given the number of occassions the hotel was catering for over the days we were there. We ate in the bar the first night and found the food very good and the staff attentive. Breakfast in the dining room, however, saw us tilting the orange juice holder to get any out as the only other option was apple juice, being served up someone elses tea and coffee which was taken away when we pointed out it wasnt what we had ordered and then having to ask again for toast which was ordered and then not delivered!. The cold buffet items were fairly sparse and the cheese and meat platter when served was disappointing. Only two types of cheese but they HAD been served in large portion to make up for the lack of choice. The continental meat selection contained roast beef, roast ham and a slice of parma ham so again not really what I was expecting. The cooked breakfast, on the other hand and on another day was of good quality and with lots of variety. Checking in and out was simple and well organised and all staff were pleasant and helpful- even when the lights blew in our room and they had the problem sorted in about five minutes. Its such a help to have wifi in the rooms too and to know that it is a fairly good connection. We will definately return.

    « lovely hotel poor service in restaurant »

    Stayed for one night on a group on deal. Hotel room as expected although a little chilly and quilt was a bit thin. Ate in the 114 grill downstairs, lovely starter but followed by very poor service , meal came out luke warm and was sent back returned after about 5minutes with new chips even though we requested a complete new meal . distance of the bar from the kitchen is too far for meals to come out hot also more staff would have helped also they need training to listen to customers orders so they get it right

    « Decent but noisy »

    Rooms were old of course but in reasonable condition, staff were generally helpful. Room overlooked the rear entrance and was very noisy because of people below the window, gathering after a party in another part of the hotel. Breakfast was good, with a nice range of options. Enjoy lunch in the hotel.

    « Good value for money »

    The Lion is not the most upto date hotel you will stay at but the rooms are tidy, clean and comfortable and for that reason i would recommend this hotel, While staying here Ifound a good Thai restaurant just up the road from the cinema and a good pub further on also called the Lion.

    The hotel was very comfortable & well appointed. A good sized room with a large walk in wardrobe & a comfortable large bed. Very clean & the breakfasts were freshly cooked & of good quality. Good central location. We were very pleased with our stay.

    « Really friendly, helpful staff »

    We have stayed here quite a few times in recent months, the hotel is very conveniently located, one side is on the main pedestrian thoroughfare and there is hotel and public car parking to the rear of this old, renovated building. The reception, foyer and bar area are immediately welcoming. There is a large space for hire and this seems very popular for all kinds of celebratory occasions.
