This is a charming, olde world, hotel with a nice bar and restaurant area located conveniently , not too far from Heathrow Airport, although we were not bothered by noise from either, with its own car parking. Also a convenient location if you are visiting Hillingdon Hospital which is only a short taxi ride away. Staff were friendly throughout the... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night as my daughter was also staying there before she went back to the US. When I made the telephone reservation I requested a room near to my daughter as we wanted to help her with our grandson, I was told over the phone that she would upgrade us to a superior room...

I stayed there with Newmarket Holidays before Christmas and from walking through the door it was a delight to be staying there. My room was excellent, very comfy and clean with a brilliant shower and bathroom. I ate both lunch which had a wide choice and gluten free meals, and they also made willingly a suggestion as an alternative for... More

We had a Christmas party so stayed in this hotel. The room was lovely and clean, and the bed was sooo comfortable with thick covers for these winter months. It was perfect and ideal for our over night stay. Breakfast was also delicious. I'd definitely go back. The staff were also very polite.

We needed a comfortable place to stay in this area of London on a budget and discovered The Red Lion. Exploring what might appear to be a provincial pub will reveal a lot of bedrooms more comfortable than your typical premier inn or similar, a restaurant that has a great menu and kitchen, and a well stocked bar (including top...

Unassuming from the outside, the Red Lion combines a comfortable small hotel with a cosy pub and some of the finest food you'll find in the area. Breakfast is cooked freshly to order so leave a little extra time in the morning - it's well worth it. The dinner menu in the restaurant will take you aback, and even the... More

Traveled up from Cornwall to see The Spanish riding school at Wembly Arena and stayed here. Great comfortable hotel with nice food reasonably priced and with Sky Sports. Extra touch of milk in fridge was much appreciated. Would love to stay again.

Dear Trethannas 71 Thank you for your wonderful comments following your stay with us when you visted Wembley Arena. We are only a couple of stops on the Metropolitan line from Wembley which makes us an excellent place to stay.

This hotel is located in Hillingdon in a rustic environment. The rooms are very nice, clean and spacious. The receptionists are very nice as well and helpful. Breakfast was simple (toast, jam, fruit, yoghurt, cereal etc), but good. The only thing I didn't like was the distance to London. When we were going to London we took the bus (427... More

The place looks as it has been around for ages. Low ceilings, little nooks to sit in but very well kept. Many beers but few special cask ales, which would have been fitting for this place. I was here with a large group. Not only was the food good, but it was served warm and efficiently. I tried a highly... More

Been to this pub a few times and it's a great building and great beer. Definitely one of the best in the area. HOWEVER every visit has been undermined by distracted, uninterested, slow and rude staff. It isn't even just one, it appears to be a recruitment strategy.... Sort it out and this would be a great pub
