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

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.

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
