My dad and I stayed here for two nights as part of our Coast to Coast walk. The rooms were a good size and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had lots of choices for food. The location was great as it is in the center of town. A housekeeper even helped me figure out how to... More

Decided to come for a 2 night break away from Tyne and Wear, and as usual it hasn't failed to exceed my expectations. . From staff to food it was all on point, the final touch was the newly refurbished rooms which are amazing and twice as nice as the laura ashley hotel in windermere (twice the price). Keep up...

As we couldn't find parking when we arrived, I went inside the hotel and asked where to park. The young man at reception came out with me and pointed us to a space (we didn't realise that this was part of the hotel parking). Checking-in was prompt and straight forward. Our room was a medium-sized corner room overlooking the side... More

We were initially given a room with an accessible shower, (which I think was due to a bit of confusion at booking) as we have a disabled child who cannot stand so needed a bath. The staff were able to switch us to another room immediately which had the bath and a lovely view out the back, bonus!! The lady... More

Stayed for 3 nights great location, limited parking spaces, hotel service was great. Good breakfast, limited menu for evening meal. Rooms basic in need of some renovation, which is happening early 2016

Just returned from 3 nights at the Red Lion. We were quickly checked in and managed to get a parking space at the front. The room was spacious and clean with 2 comfy double beds. The room appeared to have a new carpet and was tastefully decorated. There were a few areas where it could have been improved, wallpaper on... More

This was the only accommodation we used on the C2C which had a lift and a laundromat. They also had a drying room to dry our hiking boots. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean but very small. We had 2 single mattresses in a King size frame, not so good for 2 girls! Wifi available, sometimes... More

Inviting sign outside, “come in for Coffee”. Wanted to order tea and coffee, enquired could we have a menu. They don’t do one was the reply. So we ordered a tea and coffee and a scone. Drinks arrive without the cream for the coffee. Politely asked for the cream which was brought to the table. 20 minutes later we are... More

We recently booked 2 rooms at the Red Lion Hotel through Booking.Com on a 1 night bed and breakfast basis with our friends. On arrival we found that there was no car spaces left but seeing as it was after 6pm we parked in the pay and display car park just a short stroll from the hotel and didn't have... More
