Welcome to The Royal Lion Hotel

At the heart of the idyllic town of Lyme Regis, 'the Pearl of Dorset', is The Royal Lion Hotel, a stunning haven located in the middle of the High Street, with its own private car park.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque town on the West Dorset border, part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site. Steeped in history, it is renowned for its fascinating past, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, the unique fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, and for being the central location of the novel and the 1981 film, 'The French Lieutenant's Woman'.

Situated less than 100 metres from the sea, The Royal Lion Hotel is a perfect base from which to explore the locale.

Built in 1601 as a coaching inn, the Hotel has been extensively refurbished, yet still retains much of its history and unique charm. Oak beams, wood panelling and open fires help to create a warm, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, with new additions of its own swimming pool and other facilities. Wi-Fi, although not available in the bedrooms, is available to guests in several areas of the hotel.

Privately owned and managed, The Royal Lion Hotel has gained an enviable reputation for its friendly service, world class food and wine and leisure offerings.
