Stayed in Fareham many times in various hotels, but this was our first stay at the Red Lion Hotel. Town centre location with a good size car park and easily found from the m27. Our bedroom was of average size and extremely clean with good facilities provided. Food was excellent and breakfast superb. Staff seem very happy and well trained.... More

A nice hotel if you like 'old school', pub-style hotels. Food is good at the price and some of the staff ae extremely pleasant and professional. Unfortunately these good elements are let down by a very odd approach to customer service. The general management approach to service tends to be very inflexible and treats customers quite shabbily. I have witnessed... More

Staff were telling us that the hotel is having a refurbishment in June, which I will say can only make it even better than it currently is. We had a great time at a great... More

Although the rooms were clean and the food in the restaurant was good at a very reasonable price. The hotel itself needs a lot of work to bring it upto date. The rooms were poorly lit, decor and furniture was old and dated, extractors in the bathrooms were noisy, and you could here the person in the next room in... More

Always enjoy our weekends away here. The staff are very efficient and friendly too, a credit to the Manager. Also, they serve one of the nicest breakfasts I've had anywhere. Looking forward to returning soon.

Having stayed here once before I thought I would try it again, but how disappointed was I (very) !!!! . Having checked in I proceeded to the room which was very tired and unlike the one I stayed in the last time. The bathroom was full of stains and cigarette burns on the floor and parts of the facia hanging... More

Lovely Room, Excellent Dining and Attentive Staff. We used the hotel as a base to visit the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Only downside was the bar. At the time of our visit they had no proper beers on tap.Only IPA and Lagers. However we found other pubs just a few steps away so that was no longer a problem. Dining. We... More

Had a great weekend visiting Portsmouth Historic Dockyard works best spread over 2 or 3 days). Chose to stay at The Red Lion because we know from previous experience that it is a "safe bet". Yes, redecoration wouldn't hurt, but there is a certain amount of charm in the shabby chic especially as we found everything very clean.The room was... More
