We needed to find a dog friendly hotel in the Spalding area and decided to try the Red Lion Hotel. We are so glad we did! The hotel is in the centre of Spalding and we had a parking space directly outside the hotel. It is important to mention that you cannot park outside the hotel on a Monday or... More

We had a 2 night break here, the staff were very friendly and came with us to direct us to the car park. Yes, the floors are a bit creaky, but, its an old building so expected. The Market being set up outside our window didn't disturb us at all. We had a twin room, which was very clean and... More

I stayed here for one night only. After my initial parking worries all was well. I was checked in at 2 o/c by a very friendly face (easy) who said we could sort parking later as it was Market day. My room was on the 1st floor; it was clean and tidy and a decent size. The bed was very... More

We always stay here on our trips to Spalding. I agree with other reviews there are some issues eg the noise from the market being set up Mon / Fri nights, creaky floor boards and closing doors. But, it is an old property and some of these noises are due to that fact. We just close the windows to shut... More

We found this hotel at the very last minute and we were given a lovely welcome. I thought the £80 was a little steep for 1 night but that did include breakfast which was absolutely lovely. The restaurant was lovely although we only had breakfast in there. Only downside I found was the creaking floorboards in our room they were... More

Assuming you're staying for business I would advise to look elsewhere. Room was tired, bathroom was functional (just) and although outside temperature was cool the room was decidedly hot. Other guests complained of the same. Was hoping to use the restaurant only to find its Indian cuisine only. Staff ok but messed up my breakfast order even though they weren't... More

Stayed one night with work and thoroughly enjoyed it, friendly staff, big room on the top floor windows, heating, comfortable furniture and a good breakfast. Additionally you can enjoy the Jimi Hendrix experience as far as it goes - about as close as I will get to it anyway. The parking is remote from the hotel but hassle free and... More

Well what can I say, friendly staff, slightly odd people tend to frequent the bar. But you are better off jumping in the nearby stream to get clean! The shower was abysmal, even stopped at one point! Top floor rooms in an area as flat as a pancake need a pressure boost! Breakfast reasonable, staff helpful and rooms clean.

Stayed here for 3 nights the room above was really noisy due to squeeky floor boards. My floor was really squeeky aswell making me feel i had to tip toe around. I stayed in room 2 Shower was discusting never again. Needs some money spending here no way is worth the £55 per night my firm paid
