This was my second stay at The Lion Hotel with a Groupon. This time I was in The Dukeries suite and it was lush! Huge bedroom with sofa, table and a mini fridge to keep my soya milk in. There was a separate dressing room and a spacious bathroom. Great to luxuriate in after cycling around Sherwood.
The staff are all friendly and helpful. Breakfast is a buffet-style with both continental and cooked food available. There was lots of cereal, pastries, toast etc plus fresh and tinned fruit and yoghurt to start. Then the usual cooked breakfast items to choose from.
On the second night of my stay, ghee was a wedding party in tge hotel with a disco and I was dreading it going on all night, but it was quiet by 10.30pm and I slept well.
The hotel is located just at the top of the pedestrianised shopping area and the town parks are within easy walking distance. It's conveniently situated for cycling to Clumber Park where you can pick up sustrans route 6 to explore Sherwood and the surrounding area.
The only little niggle is the limited on site parking, but I suppose that is inevitable in an old coaching Inn.
I have really enjoyed my stays here and hope to be back before too long. less
