I spent one night in the Red Lion and the experience was pretty good. I arrived early and had to get down to Victoria but this was no problem - the staff looked after my bags until I got back. The room was quite large and clean - one problem was that the WC flap valve didn't reseat but I managed to fix that quite easily.
The hotel is a little out of town but it is a short walk to the bus stop and there is a frequent service.
The V lounge is a sports bar and was OK, the Fox club round the corner is a strip club but I didn't go in there. I didn't see any of the unsavoury characters that other reviews have talked about, maybe I was unlucky :-). I didn't notice any noise.
The hotel was good value for a one nighter and fully fulfilled my expectations.
