Negative Reviews

Raucous environment may overwhelm beauty rest

The magnificent location in downtown York is a bit of a double-edged sword As the city opens up before you, so do the inebriated reveries of locals and tourists Because of the nightlife, you may wish ti request a room away from the pub and away the street side.

A few small room concerns

With an old building comes the occasional set of problems Cramped quarters, hot water and water pressure problems, and ease of access for older or disabled patrons are a few of the more serious issues However, these concerns can be addressed in advance with reception to make ensure an idyllic stay.

Weak signal slows down your surfing

Although free, some guests have reported that the room-based Wi-Fi at the Lamb & Lion Inn tends to be a little sluggish side If you feel the need for more blazing browser speed, you may wish to ask if paid LAN is available or bring a mobile hot spot with you.
