This is in a good location not especially nice but it doesn't pretend to be. It is in central Basingstoke and this is handy. We had a suite which us a big room and very quiet very comfy bed, but they forgot the bottom sheet.

Noisy - very thin walls, plumbing rattles all night, nightclub downstairs 4. Shower did not work - really old tap,... More

It is not easy to get a hotel room on most business days in Basingstoke. The Red Lion is centrally located and not too far from the railway station if you don't mind a half-mile or so walk. But otherwise it's a bit run down and in need of a refurbishment. It is overpriced for what it is, but if... More

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend of the 2014 Carfest South. The only positive thing I can say about it was that the mattress was comfortable! The reception staff weren't majorly helpful. We had to ask if there was a quiet room available - there was - so why book people into the rooms in... More

The staff were pleasant and the room was clean.That's the best I can say for this tired, dated hotel. There were no spare pillows in our room nor, apparently, were there any in the entire hotel. The cold tap in the sink didn't work so we were obliged to clean our teeth in the bath. There is a nightclub adjacent... More

I have stayed here in the week for a few weeks and will continue to do so. It's old and dated, but clean & pleasant. Beers not the best but 2 witherspoons within walking distance make up for that, for a budget town centre hotel it's one of the better ones. Breakfast is ok too, warned on a Bain Marie.

I stayed at this hotel on business, not my choice but made the most of it. The rooms are extremely dated and could really do with bringing into the 21st century. On the plus side the staff are really friendly and helpful, the beds are really comfy( well mine was) and the food is ok for the price. The location... More

First and last time I stay at the Red Liaon. To be honest for a pretty high price I would expect the room to be clean and at least the view from the room not to look like a s..hole. Probably the worst room Ive stayed in for cleanliness. Used biscuit wrappers on the dressing table wasnt the best start... More

Stopped at this hotel last year. Clean and tidy. Good housekeeping. Food is average. Plenty of hot water and the rooms are warrn enough. You control the heating with a wall mounted convection heater. Breakfast is a serve yourself full english with choice of pastries and cereals etc. Has a reasonably large car park. Festival Place is just a short... More
