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

Good Afternoon, My name is Mark Hudson, I have recently arrived at the red lion hotel. Our booking was made for us by my partners mother Julie Jepson as we are in London celebrating our Engagement. Upon arrival I was impressed, the lady at reception was thorough and got us checked in within 5/10 minutes. Unfortunately that is the highlight... More

Handy car park a few yards up the road behind the hotel - barrier entry (worth finding out the code before you arrive). Not perhaps ideal for disabled access but fine otherwise. The reception and welcome was OK without being startling; Everywhere seemed to be clean and tidy. My room on the first floor was clean, pleasant and easily warmed... More

We had a nice room (2), fairly big, bathroom a little small but ok, breakfast very good with fine quality food and secure parking. Hotel is on busy road but no hassle during the night. Room had little noise coming from the bar below. Staff were good and nothing was to much trouble. A little gripe would be that the... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we were visiting friends in the area and were both pleased with the hotel. The decor was modern and nicely done, the online rate was very reasonable and the location was excellent for catching the train from radlett station, just a very short walk away. Breakfast was included and was... More
