Welcome to The Royal Lion Hotel

Lyme Regis isĀ  a picturesque town on the West Dorset border, part of the Jurassic Coast, 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 local area.

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 an open fire help to create a warm, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.

Privately owned and managed, The Royal Lion Hotel has gained an enviable reputation for its friendly service, first class cuisine and impressive leisure facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. There is a private car park and wi-fi is available in the various lounges throughout the hotel.
