Victorian Treasure

5 on January 18, 2017

First, this house is absolutely gorgeous! We were awed by the architecture and the decor. Second, our hostess (the owners were out of town) was extremely helpful and gracious. Third, it was immaculately clean. Fourth, it's location is very convenient and super close to a great restaurants and coffee places—even a vegan restaurant that was truly wonderful. Our only regret is that our trip was extremely short and we were only there for a one night stay. But we will definitely be back when we're back in Portland—hopefully soon!


Beautiful Victorian home, Great location.

This is a charming and well-run BnB. It is within walking distance of several good restaurants and it is on a major bus route to downtown and/or the Max train. During our stay in January, the owners were away on vacation so the "second string" team presided over our stay. We were disappointed that there was no breakfast served, but a continental service was provided. The only discomfort I experienced was the fact that the walls are paper thin and you can hear people talking in the next room. That said, I would gladly book another stay.


Lovely stay

I booked myself for a stay over Christmas Eve, since I wasn't visiting family until after Christmas. It was a perfect plan, to keep from feeling sad and lonely! I walked up and down Broadway (the street one block south) and shopped in boutiques and stores like Kitchen Kaboodle. I took a long bubble bath with lavender scented bubbles supplied by Lion and Rose. I walked to a Christmas Eve service in a nearby church, then slept well. They gave me late-late checkout on Christmas, so I was able to stay until the dinner I'd been invited to (plus I had early check in). So the staff went out of its way to accommodate me. In the winter, the B&B offers a wide variety of options for self-serve breakfast. Fine, but nothing to rave about. Actually, probably healthier . . .! I will go back to the Lion and Rose if I have a chance. Definitely.


Wonderful experience

The Lion and the Rose is charming. Clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is awesome. I will stay here again as well as recommend it to family and friends.


Pleasant Holiday Lodgings

This is a lovely historic Queen Anne mansion in a convenient location in Northeast Portland. My only knock on our experience is that breakfast was self-serve cereal and toast. I would have expected and appreciated a hot breakfast served by staff.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry that breakfast did not meet your expectations. During the Summer and Fall (from May - October) we offer our Bed & Breakfast Service and do serve an optional full plated breakfast. However, during the Winter and Spring (from November - April) we offer our Guest House service with a complimentary continental breakfast. This is described in detail on our websie.


Delightful

Outstanding accommodations. Dining is self serve continental. A little frustration booking my room. Tried online and was unable to book. Sent an email to the innkeeper with no response. Called at 9pm and was asked to call back in the morning after an existing appointment. Time I called back, the room I wanted had been reserved by someone else. I will say that all interactions upon our arrival were great: efficient, informative and hospitable. I would definitely return.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry you had trouble booking a reservation. Our usual reservationist was out on medical leave for a few weeks. About breakfast, during the Summer and Fall (from May thru October) we offer our Bed & Breakfast Service with an optional full plated breakfast. However, during the Winter and Spring (from November through April) we offer our Guest House Service with a complimentary Continental Breakfast.

By far the best B&B.

We have stay at Lion and the Rose regularly. We would not even consider staying anywhere else in the Portland area.


Better than a classic!

My wife and I spent two great nights at this B&B. It was splendid on all fronts. The decor was just perfect enough to make you feel that you had just been thrust back into the 19th century. We will try to plan another visit to this wonderful inn.

What a great place to stay. Close to everything. Wonderful room and bed, great breakfast and snacks available during the evening. These folks thought of everything, maps of the area, suggestions of things to do and see. Recommendations of local restaurant's etc. If you looking to stay in Portland you will not go wrong staying here.
