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

I chose to stay here when my husband was having major surgery at QA. It is a 10 minute walk from the hospital, up some steps, along an alleyway to the East Entrance. Fine during daylight hours, but I took a taxi when it was dark - cost only £2.70. My room, at the rear of the pub had been... More

I stayed for a business trip at the last minute whilst travelling around trying to find somewhere to stay and found a very pleasant hotel for the price along with friendly staff. The food is good, although the menu is a bit limited if you don't fancy pizza. Reasonable selection of beers in the bar which seemed to have a... More

I have been to the Red Lion hotel on 2 occasions. The first time we went we were tasted the sticky board. It is a board full of delicious finger food with a number of dressings. It has become a firm favourite. We also had pizza. Amazing experience. As we watched it being made using fresh ingredients including dough. Stone... More

Don't expect the Ritz with regards to the decor (as its a pub) but the service from the staff is as Good as it gets. My parents stayed and I dropped them off to make sure they got in okay and the staff couldn't do enough for them for the whole weekend. I left at night with the staff very... More

I suppose you can't expect anything fancy in a town centre pub, but this place is a bit tatty and the room wasn't very clean. There were bits on the floor and worse still one of the twin beds hadn't had it's sheets changed and had all sorts of hairs in the bed. Luckily the other bed was OK, but... More
