My wife and I visited the Red Lion restaurant on a Friday evening. Whilst the restaurant was busy we were ordered a drink then ordered our food. We waited 40 minutes for our starter and a further 35 minutes for our main course ! To compound things I ordered a point of beer which when it arrived was flat and... More

I booked this hotel on booking.com for its closeness to the station. It was only when I arrived that I realised I've actually stayed here before! Lovely hotel, in the middle of Fareham so good location. Has old world charm. Food is lovely. Bedrooms are clean, well appointed and comfortable. Even a single room has a large 3ft bed which...

Having stayed here several times, I find myself staying here whenever I go to Fareham. Friendly staff and delicious food. A great selection of breakfasts. Easily accessible with on site parking for guests. If you are looking for a bit of luxury at reasonable prices, I recommend stay at the Red Lion

We stayed in a suite at this hotel, we would definitely recommend this place if you're visiting Portsmouth or surrounding areas. The breakfast was excellent especially the eggs Royale. Our room was clean and spacious.

It's a shame the pub and rooms are lovely, just a pity the staff weren't so good - wrong room given,- although the difference refunded, poor information from reception staff, bar staff poor hygiene standards, food poor - both evening meal and breakfast - and worst of all was excuses that were made for the poor service

Has a large car park which is convenient. Reception staff unfriendly as were the bar staff. Bit off putting. Breakfast staff were the opposite and maybe should swap duties or train the others. Room clean with very comfortable bed. Fresh cooked breakfast excellent. Overall a bit overpriced at £125 per night though.

I visited this hotel for the first time since 1973 and I was really pleased I did. One of the most comfortable beds I have slept in. The place whilst has been modernised still retains some of its vast amount of charm. The food in the evening was fabulous and very reasonable. The breakfast superb and the service was second...

Amazing food, great value! Just wonderful! The Red Lion is clean, well run and it is somewhere we bring our kids back to every month for an amazing Sunday roast. The best we have found in the area!.....
