“Nice hotel and the beer is good too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

2nd time of staying at The Red Lion. A well furnised hotel with a feeling quality and attention to detail regarding the upkeep of the premises. The Room was quite small and the double-bed was on the small side, abeit with a lovely down quilt. Room spotlessly clean and well furnised. TV had Sky sports available and Hotel free WiFi.

Restaurant very pleasant with a varied menu. And as Fullers Pub the London Pride was excellent. Restaurant is busy, so book a table. Recommended

Hotel Car Park is quite small and tight!

Room Tip: Larger People ought to check beforehand on the bed sizes!

We stayed 2 nights at the Red Lion Hotel this weekend whilst attending a Sports Event at Brunell University. The hotel is well placed for this, within easy distance, and there was adequate free parking for the cars.

We opted for a "superior" room, as on a previous stay we had done this and had a lovely room. This time we were allocated the "Brunell Room", which is poorly situated near to reception and quite noisy. The room itself was pleasant with some general wear and tear evident. They go do with installing some plug sockets closer to the bed so phones/alarms could be plugged in where you could reach. The main problem we had was with the bed, which was a lovely 4-poster. The mattress on one side was completely flat, just at hip level which meant I had a very uncomfortable night sleeping in a hole. In the morning I raised this with reception, and advised it had prevent me from sleeping. The gentleman on reception did not appear to share my concern and had difficulty remembering what room we were in. It came as little surprise when we returned that night that nothing had been done to rectify the situation, so the mattress was turned and my husband endured the "hole" the second night.

Breakfast was nice, although not included in the on-line rate.

If staff had been more helpful in addressing our issue with the bed our stay would have been much improved. I would not waste my money on a superior room in the future.

I stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting my daughter at Brunel University, which is just down the road. The hotel appears to be quite old, and it is quite atmospheric. My room was comfortable and warm and had an in-room coffee making set up that was well equipped and even included some Shrewsbury biscuits, which I hadn't had for years. The full breakfast was superb - sausage, black pudding, tomato, bacon, eggs, beans, mushrooms - about the best I've had. In the evenings I had the bangers and mash one night, which was decent but not special, and the fish and chips on the other night, which was very good - there were two very large pieces of fish that tasted excellent and some interesting home made tartar sauce.

The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The layout of the hotel is rather labyrinthine, but it would be hard to get lost :-) I took away a point on the room rating as on the second night the loo wouldn't stop trickling after being flushed!

We stayed Saturday night in December. The room was excellent. The breakfast was also excellent. Well presented, with a good choice and the dining room very comfortable. We had a lunch with four other couples and that was 5 Star. Very well set table, excellent staff, the food was spot on. Excellent. No complaints at all.

I stayed at the hotel with my family during a business trip.
Everything worked very well - The rooms where big and the service very good.
The only slightly negative thing was the breakfast buffet which was a little borring - everything else was just perfect.

This is a great hotel, close to Brunel Uni, serving excellent food.
A very "English" hotel, with its chintzy decor. I stayed in a twin room and a larger twin room. The larger room was not made for anyone taller than a gnome, but it had character. The staff were very he,Paul, when I complained about the fridge like conditions in the bathroom and brought a radiator straight away.
I can recommend this hotel highly to all parents visiting their offspring at Uni. The food taste great and isn't too expensive, so you can treat your son/daughter to a delicious meal.
I would stay here again any time.

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 307, unless you are very small!
