“New construction, reasonable rates”
Reviewed January 24, 2010

The Red Lion is a pub in the small village of Hinxton, close to the Genome Sequencing campus and about 20 minutes drive from Cambridge. The owners have built a modern hotel behind the pub, detached and quiet, priced very reasonably for lodging in the area. Since it is all on one level, it is easily accessible, and there is free parking in the pub/restaurant lot adjacent to the rooms. Check-in and checkout was difficult, allow time for the restaurant staff to meet with you and check the bill carefully (I got several mis-charges, which were graciously corrected).

The rooms are small, but clean and modern, a studio room with double bed and television, in-room coffee and wired internet (cable available from the bar). The radiators are on timers that can be overridden, the staff was helpful in getting things going. The bathroom was clean and there was adequate hot water with good pressure.

The pub serves dinner in the restaurant with regional foods and wines, well prepared; pub food is also available as a lighter choice. There is a full cooked breakfast included in the room rate, and the staff was generally attentive and helpful.

Warm, inviting, fabulous food and nothing was too much trouble. These three young ladies were thoroughly spoilt and loved every minute of it.

I stayed here this weekend while attending a wedding locally, the rooms are brand new and spotless. The new garden just been laid looks beautifull and the egg benedict for breakfast was perfect. ii will be back for a weekend away and make full use of the location.
