What a wonderful 5 star review to read on a Monday morning. So pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and that you had the best night sleep ever. See you next time you have a business trip in Rugby.

We were in the area for a wedding and looking for somewhere reasonably priced. The Golden Lion exceeded our expectations. We received a very warm welcome, the room was a good size, with all facilities we needed. We had a starter each in the restaurant before we went out for the evening and the food was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend...

Felicity, this is not the first time we have been described as a "country gem" and I think it sums us up very well. What a good idea to have a starter with us first before going out for the evening. Thank you for your review.

First of all I should point out this is not a 5 star hotel it is an Old English Pub that has had an accommodation wing added. We recently stayed at the Golden Lion while visiting the family in Coventry. We found the staff very friendly particularly Caroline who was charming and Pauline who was very helpful. If you wish...

Dianne, many thanks for taking the time to provide us through TripAdvisor with such a detailed review and for your particular mention of Caroline and Pauline, I'll make sure they both see your comments. I have highlighted to the owners your concerns regarding the accommodation looking tired, the bed in Room 121 and the housekeeping standards. We look forward to...

We ate here the other Saturday night, not having booked didn't matter as we were quickly found a table. The menu was typically pub food but at restaurant prices (£24 for a sirloin steak, £30 for fillet). We both ordered a sirloin which I can only describe as a mediocre cut of steak at best, considering 50% was fat. Trimmings...

We apologise for the experience you have had with us at the Golden Lion and will take on board the comments. As a family business we pride ourselves to be known for homemade real food with the best quality of produce within the local area. We source our meat from Onley Butchers Farm that have been ranked Silver in the...

I travel frequently for business, perhaps 3 to 4 nights in the week away from home. I have a Premier Inn card for convenience and although most of the time Premier supplies first class service, their hotels can be soulless. For that reason I sometimes try to find a local hotel with a good pub attached serving good food and...

Thank Doug J
EleanorMaynard, Guest Relations Manager at Golden Lion Hotel & Inn, responded to this review

We are sorry for the experience you have encountered at the Golden Lion and your comments have been taken on board. Our Hotel is an independent, family run hotel which means we can provide high customer service and attention to detail. With this our hours vary on trade demands, which often means opening until 12am or later, depending on functions...

Visited with family for a birthday Sunday lunch. I have been before and as with previous reviews was more than satisfied with the quality of food and the service. This was a visit paid for by a voucher given to me at Xmas. I still feel it a little expensive for what it is, and that's why I only give...

EleanorMaynard, Guest Relations Manager at Golden Lion Hotel & Inn, responded to this review

Oliver, thank you for taking the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately as a privately owned business, we don't reap the benefits of mass buying power and this means that our costs are higher to provide you with the quality of food we produce. We do hope you return to us soon, maybe you will receive some more...

We had arranged a school reunion to celebrate our 65th years having all started at Dunsmore Boys School, Rugby in 1962, having been there five years ago. This family run hotel could not have been more helpful. As with all such things our numbers were flexible right up to the day and they were happy to adjust the menu and...

We came here as a group of six of us for Sunday Lunch. When you first arrive it looks great and there's a lovely smell of the food cooking. Once we sat at our tables I looked at the menu and there's not a great choice for a Sunday lunch time, a choice of 4 starters and 3 mains or...

Stayed here over night whilst visiting Newbold Revel. Lovely hotel in a lovely scenic area. Room ok, very dated. Bed was lovely and comfortable and we both slept well. We ate in the restaurant and food was to a very high standard, drinks were very pricey!

Thank DonandNick
EllyRat, Guest Relations Manager at Golden Lion Hotel & Inn, responded to this review

We are pleased to read you had a comfortable stay and you enjoyed your dinner. As a family owned hotel, we do not benefit from the buying power of chain pubs and restaurants and unfortunately this results in our drink prices being higher.
