Book this Hotel on the recommendation of the company I am working for in Wareham. Would not recommend this Hotel. All the money has been spent on the bar and restaurant areas but not on the rooms. Hotel cancellation polices of 48 hours is outrageous book three nights cancelled before I stayed the first night and was still charged for... More

Wow how things change when behind a keyboard! This guest spent literally the whole evening at the bar with myself as I was working that evening with a trainee. Full of praise for our establishment, how friendly it is, what a good boss I must be to work for, how lovely the refurbishment of the pub and rooms had been... More

A beautifully presented hotel. Very clean throughout. Great room, great food and a lovely pint. Staff were very welcoming and polite. I'd highly recommended it to anyone looking for accommodation in Wareham.

We booked The Red Lion, Wareham for a stopover down to Cornwall, as it is located close to Monkey World. We were offered a tea on arrival, whilst we checked in and were made to feel very welcome. My wife has a number of allergies and dietary requirements and the hotel looked after us incredibly well, even placing a small... More

I used to send all friends coming from abroad to stay at the Red Lion in Wareham. Until one day, the manager charged a night extra to a guest who had to leave a night earlier than expected. This happened out of season, the hotel was not full and there was no damage done. It was a poor decission from... More

We are very sorry that you feel this way. You will find that it is very customary in the industry to have a cancellation policy in place. Everyone is given this information in advance so although we do appreciate that it is frustrating when your plans change, customers are aware that if you cancel within 48 hours of arrival a... More

We have family in Wareham and Swanage so have stayed at the Red Lion several times. The location is perfect and the hotel is comfortable and convenient. Last time we stayed in a room on the ground floor but not actually on the street, so it was quiet, and we had access to the street without having to go through... More

I was given a very spacious room. The bed was huge! I stayed just the one night for a business trip but they made me very welcome. And I enjoyed the lovely breakfast. Parking outside is a bonus as well.

We have just spent a long week-end in this really excellent hotel. The staff could not have been any more welcoming and friendly and they really made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The room we were allocated (Room 3) was we believe to be a family room and as such gave us plenty of space. The... More
