A characterful 18th century coaching inn nestled in the heart of charming St Ives, with breakfast included
The river port of St Ives (Cambridgeshire, not Cornwall) is brimming with history; once the home to Oliver Cromwell and known worldwide for its 15th century bridge, complete with ancient chapel, spanning the River Ouse. This charming market town is home to a staggering 150 listed buildings, as well as The Golden Lion Hotel & Restaurant, a classic coaching inn dating back to the 18th century. Behind its historic façade, you’ll find a series of immaculately restored interiors where no oak floorboard has been left unturned when it comes to offering today’s visitor every modern day comfort. The Golden Lion was highly commended at The Publican Awards and is ranked as St Ives’ number one hotel on TripAdvisor.
Understated and cosy the Classic Double/Twin rooms exude a traditional feel, with plenty of natural wood and carpeted floors. Your en-suite bathroom has a shower and spacious bath tub.
- Flatscreen TV - Wi-Fi access - En-suite bathroom - Tea and coffee facilities - Hairdryer - Direct dial telephone - Complimentary toiletries
The acclaimed restaurant is open all day, with alfresco dining in the courtyard. It offers a crowd-pleasing menu (from burgers and steaks to vegetarian options) with seasonal and locally sourced produce used where possible. Breakfast is included in your stay.
The Golden Lion Hotel sits right in the centre of St Ives next to a church, with a lively Monday market held right outside its doors. Discover the town’s fascinating history, soak up the heritage of the waterfront and wander the many footpaths that criss-cross the ancient water meadows. Further afield it’s a half-hour drive to the university city of Cambridge, 40 minutes to the racing at Newmarket and to Ely (with its famous cathedral).
