Lovely pub in counttyside right on a pretty creek. Room and bed comfortable and well appointed. Good full breakfast. Dinner was absolutely delicious in restaurant and very reasonably priced. Parking onsite. Don't know how accessible hotel would be without a car. Lovely staff and quick checkin.

The staff at The Black Lion were brilliant. We arrived very late due to a long journey and on arrival the staff were so welcoming and accommodating, from taking our bags to our room to letting us order food even after the kitchen was officially closed, and the food was fantastic. Our room was lovely and clean and very comfy.... More

We were thrilled with our room and the level of comfort. The selection of food on the menu was good but would have like to have seen some healthier options. We had a dog travelling with us so it was a very good spot for us. Straight out of the car and into lovely walking area which is very beautiful.

We stayed for 9 days, tried the menu the first night and were blown away so booked every night. The room was enormous, the breakfasts terrific. I had to be in hospital by 8.00 am on 3 mornings and an early breakfast was not a problem for them (at least it did not seem to be!!) Well worth a return... More

First, I've seen someone questioning the star ratings, saying there are specific criteria - sorry, but I couldn't care less, to me 5 stars means really excellent, in my opinion! We were really impressed by the room - it's the little things that can make such a difference, such as good branded tea-bags, tissues, make-up/shaving mirror, cotton buds, full size... More

I question the four star rating . As an ex hotelier we were told to attain this rating one must have. A telephone in room. Information on breakfast and other amenities. Spacious shower facilities. Good comfortable mattresses. None of these did we experience when we spent three days there this week. Not once did we see or speak to any... More

Just arrived home from 3 nights at The Black Lion. Fantastic little place. Rooms are clean, bright and comfy. Ensuite bathrooms are spotless and modern with a great shower. Food is fabulous - both the breakfasts which are included and the evening meals. All the staff are lovely - they know their 'staying' customers and always had a smile -... More

We took a short trip to Wales and stayed at the Black Lion just for one night. We booked a standard double room and it was very nice. I am sure it had just been refurbished. The bathroom was great also. Far exceeded my expectations.
