The hotel provides poor vfm. The rooms are very tired and the beds uncomfortable. The receptionist was "gushing" with "darling", but poor in the bar. However, the food in the pub was very good. Not worth the price.

Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is literally in Cosham town and is convenient for local shops and restaurants. Very good value for money. We stayed there in advance of an early ferry crossing and found it very convenient for the ferry port.

Couldn't fault this place, excellent helpful friendly staff. Room was spotless. Comfortable beds with clean white bedding. Great value for money. Fantastic food. Hotel used to be an old court room. Great location for Cosham.

We had make booking for 3 rooms but unfortunately had to be delayed, they were very rude on the phone and told us they will close down even if we are going to be there 15 minutes after closing. Despite all the stress we made it on time. The pub underneath had last orders at 11 so even if we... More

After a long trip we arrived at the Red Lion we were welcomed by Wendy who couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for her. The room was clean and tidy & just right for this type of visit.

I normally eschew the corporate hotels in the area for the Red Lion. The staff is friendly. The location is great, in the center of Cosham with access to shops, restaurants, etcetera. The price is great. Rooms are basic but very cozy. Excellent restaurant with great pizzas and great beer at very good prices.

I would not recommend this place to anyone despite the price being cheaper! You get what you pay for..... Room is tiny like a box. Double bed is shoved in the corner. I have to climb over the mrs to get on it. Banging and drunken behaviour started around 2.30am and continues. No phone in room to complain and no... More
