Quite Nice, not great price

Just returned from a nice stay at The lamb and Lion.

We always try and stay in a period hotel during our annual York trip, and this time chose The Lamb and Lion for our accommodation, which for the most part was very good, the room was clean and tidy, although a little small, but this added to the cosy ambiance. Downside to our room was it was on the top floor up 8 flights of stairs. The staff and service was very good, we stayed on a B&B booking and found the breakfast to be very good, tucked away in one of the "snug" rooms situated amongst a mini labyrinth of rooms and corridors which make up the charm of the place. One of the negatives was the passing noise, mostly from people shouting under the window non stop from about 10pm-4.30am which didn't give us the most relaxing nights sleep (Not the Hotels fault, but is a regular occurrance for those thinking of staying). CARPARKING. The Marygate carpark is a good 10 mins walk and at the bottom of an incline, so lugging bags to the hotel then up 8 flights of stairs wasn't fun. We had a nice stay, but felt we didn't get as much value for money as other similar hotels we have stayed in within York centre, previous comments to reviewers from the hotel chain seemed to rely on justifying the price because of the location - We have stayed in hotels very similar with similar location at a much cheaper price. Perhaps If an evening meal was included or something to give a little more value to the stay then would think about returning.

Just returned from a very pleasant two night stay at the Lamb and Lion hotel in York.

The location is awesome, nestled right next to the Petergate arch, which really adds to the view and puts you right in the middle of everything.

From the reception area and main bar you can discover other rooms and snugs through a short labyrinth of wooden corridors. The bedrooms spiral above these over four/five floors. Overall very clean and cosy, with the limited space adding to the intimacy. However, this would prove a problem for families or even groups of three staying together, with not much room to hang clothes, store suitcases/belongings or generally spread out. Also, with it's low ceilings I found it to be quite claustrophobic at times. Regarding eating - the breakfast was prompt, abundant, well cooked and presented. Staff very helpful and friendly. Although an all-round 'thumbs up', at an already reduced price of £260 for just two nights, the concensus was that of it being over priced. Maybe a free meal or bottle of wine/champagne could make up for this. Due to the price we probably won't be visiting again. However, a great break was had by all!
