Our Christmas dinner was luke-warm, the stuffing tasted like soap and the prawn cocktail was served on a plate. There was no festive atmosphere with minimal decorations, The waitresses were rude and blunt and service was particularly poor. Won't be booking a Christmas meal here next year.

Sorry to say there is little or no hospitality or Christmas Cheer at this venue. We attended a Christmas Party in the Stable Bar adjoining the main Hotel last Saturday night. The tables were crammed in and unfortunately we ended up on the table next to the door, so an icy draft every time someone went in or out. Eventually... More

Had our Christmas party at this hotel and we all had a brilliant time. Food was tasty, hot and professionally served and everyone in our group agreed it was our best Christmas party to date. Each year we try a different venue, but I must say we will be back, probably will also use this hotel for nights out throughout... More

Last night 8 of us went to The Red Lion for our annual Christmas Dinner. The dining room is lovely and the staff great, however the food was abysmal. Prawn cocktail for starters consisted of a few prawns with what tasted like bottled sauce, poured onto a few really tough bits of lettuce. But this was wonderful compared to the... More

We had our works Christmas event at this hotel in The Stables - their "annexe" - although the atmosphere was good ( we took 3 of the 6 tables) the food was awful - curry night constituted of Turkey or vegetable curry (not both mind you) with rice and one poppadom! No salad, no sides and - sin of all... More

I had a single room which was small but very functional, neat, tidy, clean and modern with desk space. The bathroom with full bath and fab shower was spacious. Communal areas are lovely. lots of places to sit, read, relax. Lively enough bar area and nice restaurant. Staff very friendly and helpful. The centre of town location is great. No... More

We first visited here 6 years ago for our wedding. Superior room on the night and it was lovely. Spacious, nice bed and we vowed to return. We did last week. Standard room just for one night as it was a flying visit for 2 adults. The decor is nice enough. The bathroom is a bit shabby though, even if... More

Have stayed at the Red Lion on a number of occasions.Just come back from another 3 night stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly as always, especially staff in restaurant. Bar staff very attentive too. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Reception is very welcoming. Good parking facilities and very central location for local shopping and Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays.... More

Decent breakfast selection on the cold front (cereals, pastries etc) Full English was decidedly average, eggs cooked well, bacon was greasy and left a fair bit of grease on the plate. Sausages were so over cooked the knives struggled cutting them!
