We had booked in at the hotel for a one night stay for a special occasion. the staff were really helpful at the time of the booking, clarifying details about the rooms. Upon our arrival we were allocated room 17 in the main house which was lovely. Being on the top floor there was very little noise and although it was located at the back we had a partial view over the rear garden terrace and river. The room was above the kitchen so on the morning we had a lovely smell of cooked bacon rising up. Despite the rain when we arrived and again in the morning, the setting is very idyllic by the river. Mobile phone signal inside is very poor so you need to stand in the middle of the bridge to get a signal-for T-Mobile at least!. We enjoyed a pint (or 2!) of real ale to unwind and found the separate guests lounge most relaxing. Free Wi-Fi was also available.
In the room, there was a selection of complimentary teas and coffees. If you want fresh milk, this is available from the bar - better than the sachets! The bed was very comfortable and with complimentary 'Molten and Brown' toiletries and plenty of hot water, it made for a luxurious soak in the bath before going down for dinner in the restaurant.
The menu choice in the restaurant was good and a nice selection of wines were on offer. We couldn't fault the food and the service was also good. This continued in the morning when we had a very hearty English breakfast. There was a large selection of juices, cereals and fruit on offer as well as a choice of full English or any combination of cooked foods.
When checking out we also received a discount voucher for future stays. It was a most enjoyable couple of days, thank you to everyone at the Red Lion for making it so.
