We had our wedding reception at the Red Lion Hotel in Fareham on the 15th August 2015. Alison, our wedding co-ordinator, could not have been more helpful throughout the entire process. She was always at the end of a phone during the preparation time. On the day Alison and her team were excellent and could not do enough for us.... More

Stopped one night following a late ferry crossing from Ouistraham. Directions were excellent and the journey took just ten minutes. It's also well positioned for a quick motorway get away the following morning. It's a pretty good pub with large public rooms - restaurant/bar and breakfast room, plus a large free car park down a private drive past reception. The... More

Stayed overnight on a business trip. I have to say that from the outside I was a little dubious but once inside the décor and general appearance is good. Reception staff were very pleasant. My room (No1) was small but adequate if a little tired in its overall appearance. It was clean and the bed was comfortable and the shower... More

We came to stay after a fun packed day at Peppa Pig World with our 3 children for our youngest's 5th birthday. The room's were pleasant but unfortunately after dinner we returned to the hotel to a function being held in their function room which would be fine but this was adjacent to our two rooms. The dance music and... More

Stayed overnight with my husband after going to the Wickham Music Festival last weekend. Rooms are smart and comfortable if small. Very little hanging space. Bed was comfortable. Adequate bathroom with plenty of hot water but towels were a bit worn. The only difficulty we had was that we could not work out how to persuade the bedroom door to... More

We spent 3 nights at the Red Lion Hotel (inn/pub depending who you talk to) and overall were pleased with the room, the food, the pub and the town of Fareham. The rooms are small by US standards but normal for what we have seen in the UK. They were clean and the staff kept them that way.The only drawback... More

We stayed here as it was near to Portsmouth and an area we hadn't visited before. We found the Hotel, clean and tidy with good decoration. The rooms were generous and comfortable. Lots of good free parking. The staff were very helpful. The restaurant was good and the staff were very helpful, and nothing was to much trouble for them... More

Nice double room on 2nd floor. No lift, so 2 flights of stairs ok for me but not for less able. Reception staff friendly and professional. Room was large with comfy bed. Decent bathroom, decent shower. Very clean but smell of furniture polish was overpowering and uncomfortable so I decided to open the window. 1 was screwed shut and the... More

Hotel was clean, but only one skimpy hand towel and one thin bath towel. Door to room had no second lock, only a lock in the handle. I had to put my suitcase in front of the door to feel safe. Window opened, but outside was smoking area. Breakfast was good, room was clean but dated.
