I had to revisit the Lion as last time it was way above my expectations. On my visit this time I was checked in by the delightful annistasia.

Our room was fitted out as old fashioned, which was great , and was spotlessly...

First of all it's a lovely building with lots of character and all the staff are polite and friendly. The parking and charge for this are also very reasonable. The breakfast was decent enough and a good way to start the day. The location of the hotel itself is brilliant for going out in the day and seeing all that...
