We had to knock on the Pub's door for 30 minutes, to find a person, not very happy to see us saying that they were closed,... More

Lots are ready to moan about a place or say it was ok, well the Red Lion staff more than make up for any problems you might find, when they say any problems tell us it's not just words, it's what they really mean. Would I stay here again, yes I would, two great nights.

Nothing was a problem and everything was well explained by the lady on duty. Well done, a great way to start a stay in a... More

If your visiting Cosham or the QA hospital the Red lion is perfectly located. Rooms are a good size. Its surprisingly quiet given its central location. Staff are friendly and the pub has parking, food and a good selection of beverages :)

Had an excellent meal here with my partner, mother and family and had a brilliant meal. Service was excellent so was the food. We brought a birthday cake with us and the waitress came out with it, candles on and started singing . Tables around us joined in the singing and made my mums 84th birthday

Very clean which is the main thing, the room was adequate. TV a bit small for this day and age and the mattress could probably do with a topper. But for £60 I suppose what can you expect. The breakfast was a bit dry on the first morning but ok on the second. I was on a course for two... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ian and the team welcome you to the Red Lion Hotel. A pub and 16 bedroom hotel located near to Cosham train station, Queen Alexander Hospital, and a short drive to Portsmouth town centre. Above all we pride ourselves on being the friendliest pub in Cosham! Everyone is welcome! Our rooms are all en suite with double or twin beds. We have a free wi fi service for those with laptop PCs; signal is stronger on the ground floor. The rooms have recently been completely refurbished including new Hypnos 1000 spring beds, bringing people back again and again. Breakfast is served from 07:30 to 09:30 Monday to Friday and 08:00 to 10:00 on the weekends. The pub downstairs provides breakfasts and meals. Meals are available all day from the pubs extensive menu. The pub has the full sky sports package - though there's no need to worry about noise as the hotel is located on a different wing in the building. We suggest you try to book early as we are normally full Monday to Friday. ... more   less
