I visited the Red Lion with a few friends on Sunday and after a long hike we couldn't wait to have a nice meal. The staff were inattentive and impolite. Two meals came out very quickly, (however the steak was burnt to a crisp, certainly not medium rare). The meals were finished before anyone else had been served. Finally all... More

The staff and management at the Red Lion make you feel very welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was good as was our evening meal. We reserved a ground floor room for my mother who has mobility problems but this was only accessible to her via a side door around the corner of the hotel in the main street which was not... More

We stayed at The Red Lion for one night on our way to a Wedding. Our family room was just what we needed. Clean, comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. The cooked breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel. Thank you!

A bit pricey. The room was spacious but tHe furniture was not brilliant. Lovely old walnut bed, comfortable but no drawers at all, just a wardrobe. Shower over bath ran either hot or cold with nothing in between. Service was very good but calling tHis a boutique hotel is a bit pretentious

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.
