Travelling for work in current climate requires significant restrictions, the Lion hotel dealt with this exceedingly well. They stuck rigidly to the rules and ensured my safety throughout my stay. Despite no restaurant being available they were glad to support me with plates and cutlery to allow me to eat my bought in food in a civilised way, plastic forks and tin foil dishes are no way to eat dinner. The hotel was exceptionally clean and well regulated. I look forward to revisiting for pleasure when the world returns to some kind of normality.

I have high praise for the employees of The Lion Hotel, Belper. Every member of the team is engaging, friendly, professional and COVID-19 compliant. I had an extended stay which continued (flat move) through tier 3 restrictions and the staff were an absolute delight! The ambiance and seasonal decor was lovely. The friendly owner also continued his daily visits to the hotel. In my opinion, the chef serves excellent food. Prior to tier 3, I enjoyed terrific service in the charming courtyard. I look forward to returning for summer entertainment when the courtyard roof retracts; it’s a hotel with eighteenth century origins and technology to make it modern and dynamic. My room (15) was comfortable with a powerful, easy to use (over the bath) shower. The hotel has a spacious private car park. Excellent location; moments away from independent shops, restaurants, cafes and the memorial park; a short walk from Derwentside Mill Antiques & Home Centre and the River Gardens. From arrival to leaving, the experience at The Lion Hotel was perfect for me.

We've had a few takeaways from pubs and restaurants and this one was really nice. Two pizza's really nicely made, our one complaint is slightly expensive at over 10 pound per pizza. Very nice though and we enjoy visiting in normal circumstances.
