Fodor's Review

The myriad corridors of this famous coaching inn in the heart of town creak with more than 600 years of history; rooms are small and traditionally furnished, but the glorious lounge, with its high ceiling, oil paintings, and carved-stone fireplace, sets the Lion apart. Former guests include Charles Dickens, whose suite served as inspiration for The Pickwick Papers.
