All the staff were very friendly & welcoming and made sure our party of 20+ had a great time. All the food is good: breakfast, 3 course evening meals and bar snacks - great thin crust pizzas. My room was are clean & cosy with a nice view of Cardigan Bay.

We came to the Lion Hotel , along with the Boxertrix motorcycle club. From the off, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was beautifully clean on the top floor, and spacious too. We all had a deal with the hotel on a Dinner/bed & breakfast, for our 2 night stop. And we were all pleasantly suprised...it was lovely....

Did not book in advance and found most places full. Phoned this hotel and got sorted with a view of the Castle and the beach. Room38. Spacious, clean. Staff friendly and good breakfast. The mattress on the double bed was a bit hollow but may be to somebody elses taste.

The room on the second floor was big and spacious with plenty of storage space. Sadly however we only had a shower cubicle and this has such poor water pressure and could not maintain a steady temperature that...
