I have stayed in the rooms a couple of times when I've missed my taxi home and I have always found them spotless with everything I need for...

Room was nicely furnished, clean with a comfortable bed and very importantly a decent breakfast to cure the morning after the night before. If I ever return to Middlewich, which I hope I do, I'll...

The golden lion is a great place to stay!! The staff were friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking, and the pub offers a great selection of beers too. The beds are comfortable and for the money we paid offers great value for money. There are a few other pubs not too far away easily walkable!! Would recommend.

Staff friendly and room small but comfortable. However - not for women! No hairdryer, no direct phones to reception (in pub over the road), no shampoo, no sweeteners. Had to wash hair with bar of soap!
