We stayed here on a walking break in the Yorkshire Dales. From the first contact with Lousie when we were booking rooms the experience at the Lion was so warm and friendly. This is an old Inn so compromises have been made to create en-suite facilities which are practical and effective. The room and beds were all very comfortable and...

Spent 2 nights here from the 18th May. Warm welcome, comfy room, good food, what's not to like. Parking is in a pay and display but that was close by and didn't cost very much. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed one night as part of a coast to coast bike ride. Very attentive staff from the moment we arrived . Our bikes were stored securely and the Inn has real character. The two rooms were both pleasant though ours had the noisiest floorboards and saniflo in the bathroom. The shower lacked power but these issues did not take away...

Thank you for your feed back. I am really sorry that you found yourself inconvenienced in such a way. Because we are such a small Inn we do not have the luxury of a night porter and we rely on guests who come back late to close the door behind them. Unfortunately the guest prior to you decided they should...

Situated in the middle of a line of buildings on Settle's main street, The Lion's frontage doesn't look anything special. Step inside though, and things look up immediately: you're straight into the main bar area with open fire and inglenook, with a sweeping staircase. To the right is a modern, tastefully decorated and furnished dining room; through to the left...

Had a lovely meal here on bank holiday Monday we were told on ringing the dining room was full but we're given a table in the bar no problem. Good choice on the menu and the kids were easily pleased with the fish and chips. They also got free ice cream afterwards. Staff were friendly and helpful especially the Italian...
