2/5 Poor

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
Our first impressions of the room were excellent. Beautifully decorated and very clean but both beds were so incredibly uncomfortable, rock hard not just firm. We arrived at 8 o’clock and the pub had already shut their kitchen. We were told that if we were going out then to come back via the side door entrance and through the coded door, which we were given. The staff couldn’t say what time they would be closing this apparently depended on paying customers. When we returned to the hotel after finding dinner elsewhere at 10pm it was shut. We followed the directions back to the room through a pitch black back yard and unlit fire escape, into corridors, which seem to be hit and miss whether the lights worked. There was a warning about noise from the pub. Not an issue, however no warning of surrounding noise. Like the clock tower striking every half hour, neighbouring night clubs, followed by their patrons having a drunken screaming fight under our window. The windows, being single pane didn’t block any noise. Probably perfect for those wanting to stay in town for the clubs but really not for families at all.

Noisey but nice
It is noisey at night. Obviously the owners can't do anything about the church Bell which chimes all night but we didn't get ear plugs as promised. Room was nicely decorated etc though.

We had a great stay at the Golden lion and would definitely go back, facilities were great and was very family friendly, Also the food was very good we would definitely recommend this to our friends. The area we stayed was right near the harbour so lots to do and lots of places to eat and drink.
