excellent food and breakfast
it was an overnight stay from sunday to monday and we got much more than we expected for our money.
The staff was very friendly and the charme of the building was impressive.
When I stayed before I was in a 'lodge' at back of the car park.
This time single room in the main hotel. Single bed which was fine, and big bathroom. Shower was weak. No TV remote which was annoying but not the end of the world. The noise all night from a nearby boiler (?) was really too much. Positively the service was very good, the ambiance excellent and the food including breakfast very good. I would stay again but not in Room 2
Relax at the lion hotel
after a hectic drive down the M1 and 2 hours crawling along the A14 we arrived early evening at the Lion in Buckden the staff polite and friendly showed us our room which was a spacious double room in the anex .
The hotel is an old coaching inn and if you like your hotel with character and history you will not be disappointed. The restaurant was busy and with the quality of the food you can understand why, food was served promptly and the staff were friendly and helpful. the bed was comfortable and we slept well . Breakfast was included in the room price and was served with the same helpfullness as diner. i would certainly recomend this hotel, Also if you have a spare hour Buckden towers across the street are well worth a visit.
Simply put - very tired
The title says it all.
There's an awful lot of room for improvement here.
Lion hotel Buckden
The staff and the food were excelent the room was ok but a little tired.
Main dissappointment was the bathroom. No hook to hang things on, cracked wash basin. remains of shelf but no shelf over sink. The floor where it touched the walls was not very clean. Just needs a general spuce up.
Booked the lion for a saturday night away, room 1 was excellent clean and very peacefull over looking court yard and church.
Breakfast was freshly cooked and good. Service a little slow but friendly. Was told the resturant was booked for a party and was told would end at 11.00pm was a little concerned but at 11.00pm the music was turned off. Heard no noise except the birds in the morning. Very pleasent stay would use again when in the area.
Had a lovely Meal in the restaurant.
The room was lovely, if a little tired. The shower only had boiling water and although was reported, wasn't fixed. (It was the weekend)
Would stay here again,
creaky boards loved them
stayed here for 1 night cannot fault it.
will be back. what a little gem to find.
One night stay at the Lion Hotel
Checked in by a very pleasant receptionist and shown to room (biggest bathroom ever!) it was exactly as we were expecting, very old and quaint.
Even the floors sloped!
good rooms good service
every thing perfect couldn't ask for better!!!!!!!!!!!
