Another fine stay at the Lamb and Lion!

20/11/2019 463ronw, Lake Arrowhead, California

My wife and I have just completed our fourth visit to York and the same for the Lamb and Lion. Jon, Alex, Joanne, Lee and all of the other staff (sorry,not always good with names) were the perfect ho... more

Location, location, location!

17/11/2019 MagsMichel, Christchurch, New Zealand

Located right under one of the old gates, Lamb and Lion is a bit dated, and the rooms are a bit small, but that adds to the charm of this comfortable inn. Plumbing issues seem to be recurring, as our ... more

Never stayed her but love the pub.

The Lamb & Lion Inn is a great pub and hotel that on any trip into York I take I always make a point of visiting as I absolutely adore this pub. In a beautiful building dating from the 17th century, t... more

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback regarding your stay and thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. All our staff work incredibly hard so your comments are very much appreciated. Please accept our apologies you found numerous issues with the plumbing in your room we will look into these issues right away although had you brought this up with a management or a member of staff during your stay we would have got onto this there and then and if we where unable to resolve it at the time we could have looked into offering you a different room. Due to being a very old listed building just installing an elevator isn't an option and i feel it is a little unfair to state all our good reviews are false as many of our guests love our olde worlde charm and is that's exactly why they book with us rather than a modern hotel. It sounds like a old Inn isn't the right place for yourself and you would be more suited to a modern Hilton style hotel in the future Please again accept our apologies that you faced a few issues during your stay and sorry we didn't have the chance to rectify these before your departure Thank you Laura

Jacuzzi and toilet problems

This is a beautiful traditional pub and inn that is almost under one of the city gates. Super-charming and convenient location, in easy walking distance of everything. We paid close to £200/night for ... more

Thank you for choosing to stop with us on your visit to York and for taking the time to leave us feedback Please accept our deepest apologies you found your Jacuzzi bath deposited black bits when turned on we do regularly clean the pipes through with specialist cleaners as well as our daily cleaning of the Jacuzzi bath. I can only assume that the most recent service of the Jacuzzi pipes was missed which we agree isn't acceptable and we will put appropriate measures into place to ensure this doesn't happen again. Our staff did however rectify this right away and the same with your toilet seat although we do apologise these where even issues in the first place. Sorry it wasn't explained more clearly how to book again in the future with discount. If you ring our central reservations direct they will happily book this in for you. I hope you will give us another chance in the future and i hope otherwise you still enjoyed your time in York Thank you Laura
