The standard of hotels at the coast are never met with those inland or indeed abroad. I can only imagine this one got its three stars for having a pool. Tired, small rooms, very hot - this needs addressing as lots have mentioned it and silly locks on the door which means when you close you door its not locked... More

Just got back from a lovely night away. Paid £79.00 at the Red Lea Hotel. Lovely snug double room, had a lovely nights sleep. The hotel is dated but very clean and comfy. The staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. Breakfast was well cooked although I wasn't keen on the display and presentation of the cereals, jams... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my family, the hotel was clean and friendly. The staff were very helpful, the rooms was gorgeous, very comfortable beds. I would stay here again. The swimming pool was clean. The only downside was the beer in the hotel bar, it have been better if they had more of a selection of lagers.

This hotel looks plain from the outside but it has a nice pool and an old fashioned lift. The room is adequate and it is nice to have a door separating the bathroom and bedroom. The staff are very pleasant and good. Sitting here for breakfast is a luxury as you get served from drinks, fruits, cereal to cooked breakfast.... More

The hotel is nice but a bit far out of the centre of town though if fine it's a pleasant stroll. The hotel is a bit dated, although the bedrooms are of a good size with a nice comfy bed, and plenty of wardrobe space with usual tea / coffee making facilities. The bathroom was nice with a lovely Jacuzzi... More

Thank you for taking your time to review the Red Lea Hotel. We are glad that you enjoyed our freshly cooked Yorkshire breakfast. We pride ourselves in service and quality which is why we insist on table rather than 'self' service at all meal times, offering the personal touch that we feel many hotels lack at breakfast. We are sorry... More

We booked very last minute for 2 adults and an under-2 year old for 2 nights. We were upgraded into a larger room with pleasure. Check in at 3 but we arrived at 12 and the room was ready for us. Lovely old building with beautiful features and large sunlit dining area, all staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast... More
