The Lion Hotel in Belper
On Thursday 25th September 2014 the Crooks family became the new owners of the Lion Hotel in Belper, adding to The Boars Head and Littleover Lodge, with this hotel in a prime location. The hotel holds many fond memories for the people of Belper and has been in business since the 18th century.
Over the coming months, we focused on bringing the Lion Hotel back to its former glory, transforming the much loved hotel. Through hard work, commitment and a love for the hotel, our dream became a reality. We initially worked through a sympathetic refresh of the hotel and grounds which was then followed by further refurbishments of the main hotel.
Today, The Lion is renowned for being one of the most popular hotels in Belper due to its charm, character and onsite facilities which include a family friendly restaurant and pub. With two exquisite suites available to hire, the hotel is also home to one of the most popular wedding venues in Derbyshire. Boasting a luxurious interior and friendly atmosphere, The Lion provides the perfect setting for a relaxing weekend stay, a special occasion or a quiet drink with friends. During the transformation, the charm and character of the hotel was retained and the hotel continues to hold fond memories for both the people of Belper and guests.
Jonny has 20 years’ experience in the hospitality trade and with his experience of working in several leading hotels in Derbyshire, the support of the family and a growing team of superb staff, we take great pride in making this wonderful hotel a success, once more.
We look forward to welcoming guests who know and love The Lion Hotel from past visits as well as welcoming many new guests. To find out more about this wonderful family run hotel, pub and restaurant, please contact us.
We look forward to meeting you.
John Crooks and Family
