I stayed in Red Lion Hotel for one night only while travelling for business. Having booked the cheapest single room I had everything I needed: my own bathroom, extremely comfortable bed, tea/coffee making facilities, free wi-fi, tv and a generous full English breakfast. The room was very clean and cosy, all I needed to rest after a busy day. I... More

The main driver for me with hotels is location, and the Red Lion is just off Fareham High Street. There's plenty of parking, it's easy to find and within walking distance of a very good coffee shop, a Tesco Superstore, cashpoint and plenty of eateries. There's no gym, but you get free access to one nearby. The rooms are basic... More

I booked two rooms here - a superior for my parents and standard for us. Their website shows a characterful property and my parents' room was just that. However, our room was in a 70s/80s extension and, although comfortable, was devoid of all character which was very disappointing. Certainly there are neither any photos of nor any reference to this... More

Better hotel than the website suggests. Lovely restaurant area and food and staff were excellent. Cosy bar area where we could relax. Good sized car park to rear. Convenient access to the south coast via the M 27.

Lovely food, comfortable bed and helpful staff especially in restaurant. Room could do with updating but overall a super place to stay. We were travelling with someone not particularly mobile and every effort was made to make them comfortable

When we finally found this hotel, the check in was very quick. The room was clean and tidy and the bed very comfortable. Plenty of space in the room, not like a lot of newer places where you feel squeezed in, it was lovely. Decent size bathroom with bath and shower. Very quiet even though there were obviously plenty of... More
