We stopped off here for a couple of days on the way to a wedding which was 5 and a half hours drive from our town, this was about midway. When we were checked in by a very cheery young man, we were given room 21, he told us to go up the stairs and follow the corridor round to...

Visited the hotel today had a lovely "pub lunch". The food was great, excellent value for money. The staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Nice relaxed surroundings. Will definitely visit again. (I really recommend the omelettes)

Stayed here for one night in a king sized room priced at over £100 including breakfast. Firstly the room was not as described, not a king sized bed only two singles. Very disappointing and no available rooms to swap. The room was not adequately cleaned, cobwebs in the corner and a spider in the bathroom. The room was cold and...

We have just stayed in this hotel for one night, we chose this hotel because it also had a restaurant in it. On arrival we were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who booked us in and advised us that we should book a table for the night. The room was very nice and clean. We unpacked and then went down...

The lion is a perfect place to go for a romantic meal in Belper. Dining in view of the pizza oven makes for great entertainment and only adds to the anticitpation. The food came fast and was beautifuly presented. The surroundings bustling but still cosy. I strongly recommend a visit!

Stayed here for one night (thank goodness it was only one night!) after a friends wedding. Arrived in the afternoon for a rest, room absolutely stank of bleach - made me feel sick, couldn't get the radiator on and the room was really cold. It's a long time since I've stayed in such a dated room! Awful tiled ceiling complete...

Warm welcome from very helpful staff. Free parking. Good evening food from a wide range on menu (better than the "chain" pub/hotels) in vibrant restaurant which obviously attracts locals as well as guests. Large double room with comfortable bed and secondary glazing, although the bathroom was basic. Good breakfast using local products ( Delicious Derbyshire sausage). Will stay again.
