4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here for two nights over the weekend over the Americas Cup in Portsmouth. The hotel was very pleasant as were the staff. The room was ample for a lone traveller and had everything I needed. There was a little dust in areas that were quite obvious so this was a little disappointing, notably the glass in the bathroom... More

1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Despite an excellent breakfast menu, served by helpful and cheerful staff, our trip was marred by rude, unhelpful non-customer focused staff at the bar and daytime reception. Some parts of the hotel were poorly decorated or repaired and some parts of the building smelt strongly of damp. We would not recommend the Red Lion Hotel to anyone.

We were two couples doing a single overnight to go watch the America's Cup in nearby Portsmouth. Located in central Fareham, a 15 minute walk to the station with mainline to Portsmouth (GBP15 for 4 persons return). Spacious, well maintained, efficient, plenty free parking, great breakfast, good rooms and beds (at least those we had on the 1st floor), good... More

We have stayed here a few nights and will definitely return. The staff here are all very friendly and helpful. We have a huge bedroom at the front and the street at the front is very quiet at night. The food has been excellent every meal. Generally, the hotel is clean as I walk around but there were a couple... More

Booked 4 nights in May after reading reviews - very pleased. Ground floor double room behind reception area - clean, spacious and comfortable. Yes you do hear people occasionally coming and going from car park but it didn't bother us. What was slightly more annoying were the doors in the corridor outside - which bang shut very loudly - could... More

A nice balance between the ol and the new. This is an old coaching house that used to be run by our family in the 1950's. We stayed in an old room with creaky floors and we loved it. You can stay in the newer rooms which I imagine would be very comfortable as well. Good value for money. Don't... More

On arrival my wife walked into the bar area to be told that dogs are not allowed in. This was a bit of a surprise as we'd booked a room for two nights there because it was "dog friendly". Apparently the dogs are allowed in the bedrooms but nowhere else! Didn't see anything about that in the hotels advertising, VERY... More

Stayed here for 3-nights late June, asked for quite room and this is what I got "These reservations have been guaranteed and will be held for late arrival. The room types you have booked are allocated on the first floor at the front of the hotel." Its fair to say these rooms were not quite, as deliveries start around 07:00hrs.,... More
