Rotherham, United Kingdom
Reviewed 11 July 2016

The location and decor are both very good. The food in the grill restaurant was very good too. Breakfast was good on both days that we stayed. However, we had an issue with the WC not working correctly and that caused a saga that hopefully now after corresponding with senior management has now been resolved for future guests.

Dear Craig, Thank you for your feedback, we have put a lot of work into the bar and into redecorating over the past couple of years, so it's nice to hear that customers are noticing. I'm sorry to hear about your toilet problems; I'm not sure what happened from your comments, so I can't look into it, but I hope...

We were very pleased with our weekend stay. Just one point that needs to improve and that is the service in the 114 restaurant. This is a shame as the food was good. Our room was on the second floor and was very quiet. However there was no lift.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind review, and I will take on board your feedback about the bar service and pass it to the manager. We do have a lift, but due to the structure of the building, you can only reach about half the rooms with lift access, we do also have rooms available on the ground floor....

Attending a nearby weekend function, and not wishing to meet the inflated charges for on site accommodation my wife and I selected The Lion as our base. As it turned out a wise choice with almost everything exceeding our expectations. The "executive" room was a delight. Spotlessly clean, modern, and very well equipped - air conditioned, usual tea making and...

Dear Rachel, Thank you for your feedback. We are actually currently renovating the hotel, and all the newly refurbished exec rooms and suites will have air con and over half have already been done.

Visiting Worksop was a trip down memory lane and gave us the opportunity to meet long-standing friends. Staying at The Lion was the ideal base - so much so that we hope to visit again in 2017. The whole thing worked perfectly.

A great weekend staff were helpful and courteous. The breakfast and service were second to none. The room was nice and comfortable. The hotel is in the city centre were there are a number of good real ale pubs which we like. There is also lovely walks or runs in our case down the canal or through the local park.
