11 of us ate here for a family get together and the meal was very nice all arrived on time still hot and nicely presented. Steaks were perfect and pies chicken lasagnes and kids pizzas were also very nice. The staff were attentive. My parents stayed over and said the breakfast was very good. The best thing for me was...

Ahahahah. Those Chickens get more attention than any of us! pleased to hear that the food was good and exceeded expectation. When catering for a party of 11 it can sometimes cause a little confusion or delay but we think we have the best kitchen team in Yorkshire now. We do get quite a few guests who stay and then...

Rooms were a very high standard, motel style backing on to a lovely residents garden. Hosts were very attentive and helpful. Enjoyed the meal in the hotel - we were too tired to go into York - and good selection of wines. Park and ride nearby was a great resource. Thought it was excellent value for money and will stay...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you were happy with the rooms. We have only been here for 2 years and the first thing we did was totally refurbish the bedrooms. All the walls were ripped out and new en-suites built. Reading your review I gather there was nothing that you...

Stopped at the red lion on our way home from a weekend in York. Both my hubby & I had the roast beef dinner in the restaurant. The dinner was lovely, beef cooked to perfection, beautiful veg, roast potatoes, mash & Yorkshire pudding were all lovely. Staff very smart & polite. Music was a little load in the restaurant bit...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Red Lion. I will pass on your comments to our chef about the beef. He is always looking for PERFECTION! All the staff are hand picked and trained by my wife and I so we are pleased to hear that you were happy with the staff.

The food was really tasty and plentiful, the only problem I had was the constant ringing of a guy,s mobile phone, this disturbed my enjoyment of the meal. I would not like to eat there on a permanent basis.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you found our food "really tasty and plentiful" However, I am sorry to hear that your visit was spoiled by some inconsiderate person with an i-phone. Had I have been there I would have asked him to be a little more understanding and tolerant. I'm afraid it's a sign...

We were in York for a family funeral so there were 22 of us staying at the Red Lion. The hospitality was second to none, large comfortable and clean rooms with a beautiful resident's garden area. The breakfast was delicious. Overall would highly recommend.

Hi James, Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure to be of assistance during your stay. Just wish it could have been under better circumstances. I agree the private residents garden does make it more appealing. Mark, Jean & the red lion team

By far the best place I've stayed. The motel layout with private residents garden feels a lot more homely than conventional hotels and bnb's. Hotel staff aren't over bearing and leave you to enjoy your stay but somebody always seems to be available should you have a question. The food is brilliant and the included breakfast is a great way...

A superb weekend at a lovely venue. Rooms are very clean and tidy with very friendly staff. Very competitive room rates with a great breakfast thrown in also. Takes about 10mins in a taxi to get to York which costs about £12 a car. Thanks Jean. Will stay with you again if in York.

We've got mixed reviews about the Red Lion. We were initially very disappointed on arrival. After having stayed in several really cute and charming b&b's/inns we felt we'd landed in a roadside motel when we arrived at the Red Lion. The room was certainly clean and functional and looked recently redone, but had nothing of character as would be suggested...

I surprised my partner for his 31st birthday to a weekend away in York - I chose this particular hotel as the grounds looked beautiful and the food was very highly recommended via reviews! We were not disappointed. The staff were warm and friendly. They couldn't do more for us. The room was lovely with a nice big bed -...
