Very e staff
The location was fantastic unfortunately the parking was a good 10min walk which was a problem for my husband who is disabled, however Dan the member of staff was extremely helpful carrying our luggage and allowing us to check in earlier putting us on a lower floor. Nothing was too much trouble all the staff were extremely helpful

Poor 2.0
orst nights sleep EVER
Terrible stay. Where to start? 2night stay. Smallest double bed ever. Room was so hot, fan supplied had no cover on it so the blades were exposed! The window only opened around 6 inches so no air circulation. Stayed in room 1 Avoid. Avoid. Avoid if possible, the street was so noisy below, and as the room was so hot you had to have the window open. No provisions to leave your bags so we had to walk back to the car before check in time and leave them in the boot all day. Room wasn’t made up, no fresh towels, loo roll etc. Tv remote was in pieces and had to be held together to use it. Asked for flowers in the room for my wife for our wedding anniversary, a joke looked like a bunch and a half of flowers bought from a garage forecourt. Breakfast was also extremely disappointing. No fruit, yogurts, fruit juices etc. They don’t tell you this on the web site! Claiming it’s due to the CV 19!!! For £169.00 per night this place is not worth the price. I would suggest staying in the double tree by Hilton just outside the city walls. Terrible little place the lamb and lion but could be a perfect stay if the owners Best western put some money and effort into the place. This b I’d a £50.00. A night stay at best! Nice beer garden was its only good quality.

Cosy, friendly, a must.
Spent an excellent night at the Lamb and Lion. Excellent location, walking distance from all major attractions and just around the corner from the impressive Minster. The room was spotless and warm and every member of staff we spoke to were so friendly and helpful. We left our bags after checkout so we could explore York without them and we liked the pub so much we had dinner when picking them back up in the evening. Excellent food and cosy atmosphere, the Lamb and Lion is a must if you are staying in York.

Up on the roof nearly but it was great!!
Had a fantastic stay in The Attic !! It was great with the York wall one side and the Cathedral the other. I must say the breakfast and food in general was excellent and the room cleaning was perfect. Taking in to account this is a very old building and a little tired in places only adds to the charm and overall feel of this very quaint hotel ,and to over modernise it would be a shame. If you are looking for a sterile all mod cons place then its not for you as you have to breath in the atmosphere in this place which makes it so special

Good stay
Location is brilliant and very friendly staff. Good price- the only negative ( we were in room 1) was we could not turn down radiator in the bathroom-it was sweltering.

Lamb & Lion Hotel short stay
Lovely, small but quaint hotel. The room was of ample size and clean. I just think the hotel would benefit double glazing (you can get double glazed sash windows now) as not only there was condensation but as we were on the front, we could hear the few that walked by at night. But on the whole an enjoyable stay.
