Convinient located to visit Harry Potter Studios, the hotel was good. Secure parking behind hotel. Near to busy roundabout but not too much noise. Prices fairly high for drinks, but good food on offer.

After shopping round chose the Red Lion as place to hold surprise 40th birthday party for my wife - never been there before so like anywhere new there's always a risk involved, and only got one chance with such a big party. However, staff and venue were fantastic from start to finish - really accommodating, helpful and warm. They helped... More

One Diet Coke and a large gin and tonic nearly 14 quid!! Jesus! Not really much character, although a nice location. Staff seem adequate food is ok. But what a stripe the drink prices! Will try and avoid in future! I don't like being taken advantage of.

Large room with excellent new bathroom. Huge comfortable bed with nice linen. Good quality complimentary toiletries and tea/coffee faculties. Restaurant very good. Friendly staff. Safe, barrier controlled parking. We were unable to stay for breakfast, but I understand it is very good. Not suitable for anyone who has difficulties with stairs. We will be back soon.

I visited here in early April with my partner. Radlett is a nice village and The Red Lion is central and smart. The pub is nice and the beer good. Our room was number five and the staff were - in the main - friendly and helpful. The room was ok, but there were a few issues. There are no... More

We decided to stay here to visit Harry Potter world and the centre of London. Perfect location. Approx 20-second walk to the train station, 20-minute train to St Pancras. If you are looking to visit Harry Potter World it's a small drive 30 minutes tops! Location doesn't seem like your typical busy London location. Surrounded by banks, train station, shops... More
