On arrival staff were not sure if my room was ready or not and I was left in reception for a good 20 minutes waiting for them to find out - it was a bit chaotic and the staff really didn't seem to care - 'Fawlty Towers' springs to mind!. The room was not clean and the bathroom smelt of... More

Just come back from an amazing mothers day meal, 17 of us in total, the food was gorgeous all home cooked and plentiful. The staff were very attentive and happy to help. The table was laid out beautiful. I've not been in the red lion for a long time and I will definitely be going back again soon. Good quality... More

just got back from our Mother's Day dinner. We were a table of thirteen and all I can say was that everything was perfect. Lovely friendly staff and food absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend this hotel for fine dining at a very reasonable price. 10/10

I was very happy about the location and the front staff in the hotel. It is really a very small room and was not interesting room to stay. Flush system and shower could have been better and i didn't enjoy my stay. Definitely it is not value for money... May be my expectation was very high having seen fantastic stays... More

This is a very overpriced hotel, the stand of accommodation is poor as is the service. The breakfast was very basic. There was allot of noise outside at night - not sure if it was from guests returning after a night in the pub or from a pub nearby.

Nothing fundamentally wrong with this hotel which is centrally located just off the main High Street and a short walk from Festival Place. The hotel has an attractive facade onto the High Street but most of the accommodation is in a modern extension at the back. Not the most attractive views but the rooms are reasonably comfortable and warm. The... More
