I have always enjoyed The Lion since my first visit in 1957. It's probably better now than it was more than 50 years ago but the character and integrity remains. I had a 3rd floor room with a wonderful view of Wyle Cop and the Long Mynd on the horizon. If you need swimming pools,
Fitness centres, jacuzzis and health spas, this is not for you. Of course the staircase and floorboards creak, and the single lift is ancient and slow but it is 400 years old - well perhaps the lift is a bit younger at 299 years. Breakfasts were perfect with attentive and polite waiting staff and food quality very good. Bedroom, more than adequate and supremely comfortable four poster bed. Well equipped full size bath and shower and endless supply of teas and coffee.
I enjoyed it more than ever.
Perfect hotel to visit above attraction. We had a basic double room which was roomy and light with one of the most comfortable beds in any hotel we have stayed in. Staff always helpful and friendly. Breakfast plentiful and good choices. We only ate dinner on one of the 3 nights we stayed and that was room service, all good. Lots of people staying for the golf and everyone we met was very sociable and fun - no cliquey golf types! For either the golf or The Follies, a great place to stay - also for exploring the area further, which we also did. Highly recommend.
We had a relaxing mini break, staying two nights. Great breakfast and the children played in the field at the back of the property. The owners were relaxed about us playing football there. We had a lovely, clean family room.
