Working in Fareham over the bank holiday, and was booked in here by my company. What a great choice, a lovely place, clean, tidy and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Compliments to the chef.Rooms were a little basic but none the less clean, and quiet! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of room to park in... More

Very good all round, staff, room, food. nothing wrong. Handy car park and easy bus access to Portsmouth. We have stayed at several Old English Hotels, all of which have been good value, but the Red Lion has been the best so far.

I've stayed at The Red Lion 3 times now in the last year and as usual overall it is a basic, clean, no frills hotel. We didn't eat our evening meals in this time as my daughter is a fussy eater and didn't like the look of the menu. Breakfast was good as always as were the polite staff. The... More

Stayed one night, as a pre Cruise overnight. Overall I agree with previous comments this is a definite 3 star extablishment. The overnight rate of £100.00 is probably about 10% too much. Location is excellent, easy to find, and a good secure car park. The only disappointment was although owned by Greene King, there was an acute shortage of real... More

I once again find myself down south on business and my company booked me into the Red lion, Fareham. First impressions from the street were a little disappointing however once inside my opinion changed. All of the staff I came across couldn't do enough for me. The receptionist (sorry I don't know her name) was fantastic. The restaurant and bar... More

Spent two nights here for work. Restaurant food was great, especially the Bakewell Tart, which was yo die for. However my room was an experience. I was given room 3 and found out quite late in on my first night that my light in the room did not work. When I reported this at reception the response I got was... More

Assessing this as a 3 star hotel. Within its class this is a gem of a hotel. Arrived early evening and checked in by a pleasant and efficient receptionist. Had a superior room, whilst not luxury or had any additional touches, was an excellent size - offering comfortable double bed, sitting area with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Bathroom was...

Stayed at the weekend as part of a family get together. The hotel was overpoweringly hot throughout so bring your summer clothes. No air con in the rooms which would be fine normally but for some reason the hotel was boiling and there was little ventilation. The bed was small - you expect a king size in most places these...
