We have stayed here about twice a year for the past 3 or 4 years. Always comfortable rooms and a nice selection of Fuller's beers at the bar. It is very reasonably priced - unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of their most recent offer of a Valentine's dinner in with the price of the room!! Even though we just booked... More

This hotel was recommended by a colleague when I was traveling on business. Reception was friendly. We parked where the pub is located at another end so we had to go through some winding corridors but it is well sign-posted so you shouldn't get lost. If you parked at the hotel grounds then the reception area is easy to find.... More

We have now found an hotel near London and its airports which we will use on a regular basis. We stayed before and after our holiday. On each occasion the rooms were comfortable and well presented. We had one meal which was above average for pub food, and the staff were very pleasant. As were the reception staff. Well done... More

We were a party of 26 and needed a promptly served Sunday lunch as we having an orchestral rehearsal in the nearby school.

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

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
