Score from 289 reviews Superb
the Location is very good nearby York Minster. You can go to Minster with 2 mins. The staff is very nice to introduce their hotel's facility. Without lift, but the staff help to carry one baggage to upstairs.
The WIFI is not so strong. We need to stay in bathroom to catch up the signal.
Lovely pub, full of character, great atmosphere and decent local beers. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was very good, especially the Clifford's Tower pie. Location was great, very central. I would stay here again.
Stairs to/from our room (the attic room) was steep and narrow. Bathroom was very small, especially for a deluxe room. It was noisy at night but this was a feature of York rather than a problem specific to the Lamb and Lion.
The staff were friendly and very helpful. The location was central and perfect for what we needed. Breakfast was lovely.
The bar toilets could do with fixing but clean.
LOCATION BREAKFAST BEER GARDEN
The room was fabulous and very clean.
The drunks outside didn't stop shouting until five in the morning. As this was our first night away without our three year old I was hoping for a good nights sleep.
Great breakfast, quaint room absolutely plum location & good atmosphere. Next time will book for dinner too.
Great pub, lovely beer garden, nice rooms.
Service at breakfast was a bit chaotic. We waited a long time and it wasn't great when it arrived. Lots of street noise but that was to be expected given the location.
Everything. Ensure that you opt for the Breakfast and Meal option, you will not be dissapointed. Great location and the staff are the best. Food to die for.
The hotel was in a good location, beautiful beer garden, excellent food and the room was lovely. Staff couldn't do enough for you and were very friendly and professional.
Positive attitude of staff, good breakfast with varied choice and good choice of real ales. Very good beer garden
Far too noisy. Main thoroughfare, with people continually passing all through the night. Dustmin bed arrive every morning at 5.45 a.m. Rooms very small
the location is perfect and the hotel is full of character and charm. Food is good as is the beer.
The bedrooms are very noisy no dampening on fire doors that just slam shut. Front facing rooms need secondary glazing to eliminate oise from the street.
5min walk from York Minster and Shambles and about 10min from other attractions. The castle museum is a must and so is the Viking centre and the railway museum(this was free).The lamb and lion is a very old charming place to stay and the food there is excellent,the staff can't do enough for you either great place to stay
Superb evening meal - particularly the Clifford's Tower steak pie Staff extremely friendly and efficient Inn had character
Sash windows were difficult to keep up / open on a particularly warm evening.
The location was excellent, beer garden had stunning view of the minster, staff were friendly, breakfast was very nice.
The noise from the street late at night kept waking us up,we had the attic room,however I don't feel the inn can do anything about drunks shouting outside, no full length mirror, which is needed
Clean and friendly.
The window didn't close because it didn't fit which meant the sound of the street was very noisy. There was a delivery very early in the morning which was also very noisy, didn't get much sleep.
From the moment of arrival all of the staff were most welcoming and helpful without exception. Restaurant serves lovely food. Breakfast cooked to order. Very enjoyable stay.
There is no parking but the hotel. Not that i needed one but no lift so a bit of stair climbing necessary.
Excellent location Excellent breakfast Friendly staff Nice quality bedding and towels Tea and coffee making facilities in room and complementary biscuits Character building
Plinth on floor between bedroom and bathroom broken and crumbling and large stain on bedroom ceiling. Small things that would have been easily repaired and improved the feel of the room.
room was small but very nice & quiet. Great location. Very nice rooftop bar and restaurant with good food.
Ideal location for city centre and attractions.The breakfast was very good and the evening meal we had in the restaurant was excellent.
The room was rather small and in need of decorating ( room 1). The walls had dirty marks and the drains in the bathroom were smelly. Overall not very good value for money
Good location,very clean,good breakfast.
Nothing was all good
as a solo traveller who came to York by train,The Lamb and Lion was within easy walking distance from the station.The staff were friendly, the food I found excellent.The bed was comfy,I slept well.You are within minutes of the Minster.I stayed for 2 nights-19-21 August.The visit was so enjoyable,I've booked to return April 2015 for 3 nights.
Room very small web pictures very misleading Toilet was tiny Too expensive for what you got Fan system outside the window
Location excellant. staff really friendly and helpfull,choice of breakfast really good to. would happily recomend.
My wife and I decided to stay at this hotel as a change from the large Hilton hotel that we usually stay at when in York. This proved to be a good decision, lots of character excellent staff and a fantastic nights sleep ensured that we will definitely be returning especially when being gently wakened be the bells of the Minster, fantastic.
Friendly welcome from all staff Excellent location The food was superb The room was comfortable and very well appointed Lovely beer garden
As would be expected due to the location there was quite a lot of noise as people left pubs and nightclubs in the early hours as our room was on the street side of the hotel
