The assistance of the very limited staff members two
Missing lights, scaffolding around building and windows, no hot water at all, dirt and grime with building dust, significant water leakage from the wash stand, no parking for vehicles local council park always full and GBP4 per day, I doubt if they would pass the Regulatory standards, and they are closing down in October for a rebuild programme. No refund has been offered in fact refused, but they have offered a free night and meal next year - NO CHANCE WE DECLINED ONCE BITTEN. We found the Lion Hotel Boreham for our second night Magnificent and also excellent staff and hospitality codes. Choice for our stay in 2015.
The room was very unique with old wooden beams and well updated to provide modern comfort
The sausages at breakfast. I requested a quiet room but was awoken by the early morning traffic but this may have been due to the requirements to conform with the regulations for listed buildings
Very clean spacious rooms full of character. Good food served in bar. Missed breakfast because of an early start.
Rooms not soundproofed enough. Could hear next door talking through wall (they weren't being loud). Hot water fm both taps in bathroom.
Looking out down the river
No mention of parking on site ... And a charge incurred.
The place is very quirky with a lovely garden outside surrounded by water.
The room was very noisy, when some in the room above ran a tap it sounded like there was a waterfall above my head. When anyone used the stairs is was very loud. I believe they are due to be renovated soon.
The atmosphere of the old building, small hotel and large room, nice pub downstairs with good food, nice staff
Accessibility problematic (lots of stairs), shower a bit tricky - but that's what comes with the age of the building I guess
Location by the riverside lovely for walks, also v handy to be right next to a large leisure centre and some very good restaurants. A very period building if that is preferred.
Very creaky floorboards as v old building. I could hear, very amplified, every foot fall of the guest above me. Also, room needed a bit of TLC. Marks on furniture, which didn't match, small repairs needed in bathroom, all a bit neglected. I stay in a lot of hotels for business and this was not the usual standard expected.
Atmosphere was great, I was on business trip, there was a quiz night on in the restaurant bar area which felt homely, the food was quickly prepared and excellent, also good range of beers and ciders, staff are really helpful and service was great. I watched world cup football on the big screen near the bar.
Only 2 points, The window in room 5 is high level, so no view outside, but this is because the building is some 500 years old, charachter and design of the building is quite special. Other point is I could not find a hair dryer, new staff recently taken over this Inn and they are finding their feet, and doing a good job to improve the place.
The place had a charming character. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Beautiful beer garden at the rear.
Availibility of parking.
Great service, lovely charming building, great location, loved the room
Bed was very springy and noisy....
Nothing not to like
The position of the Hotel was great for our needs. Clean, good atmosphere, food good and room a good size. Also had a nice area outside next to the river with plenty of seating.
Only car park is opposite and you have to pay, the room was let down by the noise from room above. When guests in that room used the toilet and the bath, everything was heard in our room as the waste pipes ran thru the room instead of outside. With this in mind we thought the room rate rather high.
Young lady who showed me to room was very nice and welcoming.
I would recommend a couple of bottles of water in the room. When I tried to use the cold tap it was, even after a minute still running warm to hot! Please serve breakfast at a more sensible hour. 9:00 is far too late even at the weekend and this will make a difference to my to future bookings.
Friendly staff and very helpful lovely room very comfortable good food restful no hassle Great position
Good staff,lovely hotel,good meals & good ale.Very picturesque setting on the riverbank.
Hotel couldn't find the booking,luckily they had a spare room.
After 45 years away to see then a working building, has been preserved and put to good use.Room was spacious and in very good decorative condition, the staff very polite and helpful.
Based on last week we feel the rooms would be very hot in the summer. Thou not expensive to park the car it would be nice to park for free, which is normally what happens at most hotels etc.
Lovely location and the best cooked breakfast I've had for years
Staff were a little uninterested
Great location, a five minute walk by the river & you were in the town centre. Lovely 18th Century (extended sympathetically) inn. The hotel rooms were lovely, full of character, even had original beams in the bathroom, but really large comfy rooms with all modern conveniences. The food in the inn itself was tasty & plentiful, breakfast was served in the "Mill Room" and superb. Staff all helpful & friendly Highly recommendable.
Lovely room, friendly laid back staff, good value for the area.
Bit of a guessing game as to the breakfast choices on the first morning, waitress not very forthcoming.
The staff went out of their way to help me find out how far I had to travel for a meeting and gave me a list of taxi firms to contact.
Lovely friendly staff, great decor, fabulous breakfast
Loved the atmosphere and the decor. Staff was unbelievably helpful and accommodating. Food was okay but the draft ale selection more than made up for it! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends!
Staff were excellent
No parking facilities. Public car park across the road but I was concerned about leaving my vehicle there overnight.
Nice big room good access to town centre
lack of control of air conditioning if you wanted to get an early night a lot of noise from the function room if you stayed in room 3
The bar and restaurant were very cosy
It was pretty good all round
