A Gem in Newark

A very warm friendly welcome from John and Pablo, we felt like we were visiting old friends, and a chilled glass of wine whilst getting ready - just perfect. The house is lovely and full of character and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb and cooked to perfection. We would not hesitate to book The Lions again or recommend it to all our friends and family , thank you Karen & Lee

A wonderful experience

We booked here as our friends were getting married close by. The hosts, Pablo and John, are marvellous and nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and homely. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Delightful hosts

We had three nights at the Lions and John and Pablo were the perfects hosts. From the day we arrived they offered us a complimentary gin and tonic and red wine in the garden which was lovely. The twin room was very spacious, plenty of room for our luggage and breakfast was very good. Would recommend to explore Newark and surrounding areas.

Wonderful Stay at The Lions

We had a lovely stay at The Lions. Greeted by Pablo, we were a bit early so we were able to sit in the very beautiful garden with a drink to enjoy the peace & relax. Our room was beautiful with a massive bathroom, everything was spotless & perfect, and such a comfortable bed too. And good pillows, not too hard! We stayed in Newark overnight, sadly not long enough to enjoy this beautiful home, but we were collecting a Motorhome from Brownhills & needed a place to stay overnight. Could not recommend The Lions highly enough. Very welcoming & obliging, fabulous room, and Top Breakfast. Fantastic home made jam too! Pablo & John are excellent hosts, and if we are in Newark again we’ll definitely be staying at The Lions

Hi Pablo and John, Thank you so much for your warm welcome, for looking after us so well in your delightful and very comfortable house, and for the delicious breakfasts (not forgetting the very tasty home-made jam!).

Excellent two night stay

Many thanks to John and Pablo for a wonderful stay. They were most helpful in arranging the booking at very short notice and made us most welcome. The Lions is a beautifully appointed House and very tastefully decorated. The whole place was very clean and tidy and the room very comfortable. Breakfast was prepared to perfection and served in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Throughout our stay John and Pablo were most helpful and we will certainly be staying again when visiting Newark. We feel we have made two new friends. Many thanks, Martin and Wendy.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the bathroom fantastic! Breakfast was freshly prepared and delicious. The town centre is a short walk away, and there are some interesting places on the town trail. Pablo and John made us very welcome. It was the personal touches that made the stay so enjoyable - providing fresh milk for our tea, the offer of wine or beer while we got ready to go out, chatting about the lovely garden. We would definitely stay here again.
- Mary & Chris

Such a beautiful house

We stayed here for a family wedding in the area with our three children and I would highly recommend a stay here the hosts were fabulous, friendly and nothing was to much trouble even accommodated children's breakfast requests when it was a last minute change they couldn't do enough for us. Such a beautiful house and gardens as well as lovely hosts. Thank you to you both for a lovely stay we will definitely come back again. Thanks again Jeanette, Terry and girls

Hospitality exceeds all expectations

Pablo and John are probably the best hosts on the planet. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there - nothing was too much trouble. They seemed genuinely interested in hospitality and travel. Offering a glass of wine instead of a cuppa on arrival shows a real understanding of what someone might appreciate after a long journey. Breakfasts were cooked to order and Pablo took pride in his cooking skills. John cooked up an impressive dinner on the last night, and I felt like a valued guest. If you're looking for a home away from home then this is for you. It was for me. Thanks both, I look forward to staying again. Kind regards, Angelina

Excellent and Friendly Service

Excellent location five minutes walk from the centre of the city. Lovely room, excellent hosts, very relaxed and informal, but on hand if you needed anything, felt very welcome. Room was spotless and well equipped.
