Good standard of accommodation. We stayed in a superior double which had recently been refurbished. The room was very spacious with a beautiful modern bathroom. We stayed here as we were attending a course at the Bartholdi Cookery School in Radlett, but we also found it to be an excellent location for visiting London. Radlett station is a minute's walk...

There were nine in our party for Saturday lunch. We all had a single dish and a drink. The lady behind the bar was lovely and helpful. All the dishes arrived within a few minutes of each other and about 15 minutes after ordering. Food was really good and we'll presented and filling. All staff were good and the bill... More

Ended up at the red lion as other surrounding pubs were fully booked! It was very quiet inside the pub on a very sunny week end we decided to eat in the pub area rather than the restuarant, it has a nice atmospher and pleasant staff. Our food order arrived within 20 mins which alarm bells start ringing, my son... More

Stayed for one night and found the hotel ideal for our visit to Harry Potter studio. Parking easy, staff friendly and attentive. Room very clean and we'll equipped.Spent evening having few drinks at bar and meal. Breakfast included with price which was lovely and set us up for the day. Would recommend this hotel.

Been a long time customer of Lion. Recent leadership change has really done them in. Brought my family for dinner over bank holiday. After ordering food for kids, was told kitchen can't take any more tickets, even though restaurant was 1/3 full. Was then rudely told by a snotty waitress 15 mins later that our children's food was going to... More

My husband and I booked The Red Lion for a bank holiday break. We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The Red Lion is a Gastro pub downstairs, and a very comfortable hotel upstairs. If we had to grumble, the mattered was way to firm, but that is a personal preference.The whole place is beautifully done out, a... More

In view of the fact that I was staying in a pub with rooms, I could hardly fault my stay. The room which had been upgraded was fantastic with an enormous bed which was very comfortable, an up to date shower room, iron and ironing board, flat screen TV, lots of tea, coffee and biscuits in the room. The only... More

Stayed just for one night and had evening meal and breakfast. What a surprise....I had thought it would be an average experience, but everything was as near perfect as I could ask for in this class of hotel, as it's also like a pub with a big bar area and outside seating area. Service at check-in and the bar /restaurant... More

Me and my girlfriend were visiting the Harry potter tour in Watford and wanted to stay somewhere in the area. Having checked Trip Advisor I found the Red Lion which had generally popular reviews. I'm not sure if the hotel has changed hands recently, but to say we were disappointed is an understatement. We have both stayed at a number... More
