Lion Hotel

Welcome to The Lion Hotel, a well-established, friendly country pub with bed and breakfast accommodation in Mid Wales. Janet and Ray Thomas have been proprietors of The Lion Hotel for over 25 years, but the pub has been in the village of Llanbister, near Llandrindod Wells, for over a century. The couple have retained some of the pub’s traditional Victorian features and décor, giving the building a distinct period feel. Guests staying at The Lion Hotel can feel as though they have stepped back into the late 19th century whilst enjoying all the comforts of modern living. The rooms are warm and cosy with fantastic views over the stunning Welsh countryside and the nearby river Ithon. The location of The Lion Hotel makes it a fantastic Mid Wales bed and breakfast accommodation choice. Llanbister is a small, quiet village located in the beautiful Welsh countryside. However, it is also a superb base for those wishing to explore Mid Wales, with beauty spots like the Elan Valley nearby, as well as several fantastic walks, including the famous Glyndwr’s Way and Offa’s Dyke. Winter Opening Hours A lunchtime menu is served daily between 12pm-2pm and the full evening menu from 6pm-8.30pm Mon to Thursday and 6pm-9.00pm Friday and Saturday. We are open for drinks only on Sunday until 6.00pm.
