I stayed at the Red Lion for 3 nights. I stayed in a suite at the front of the hotel and it really was beautifully decorated. It was clean and fresh and a real sanctuary. A few of the other reviews have mentioned noise level and this room was noisy - there's no getting away from it. However, the hotel *is* on a main road, so if you turn up expecting countryside-style silence then that can't really be blamed on The Red Lion!
The staff were very friendly, and the courtyard is a really lovely addition.
My only gripe is that they're still finishing the renovations and haven't sorted the water pressure yet so there was no shower. This would have been fine, but the bath would only fill up a small amount before the water literally stopped running. I would have liked to have been warned about this before I arrived.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Red Lion, after years of neglect, has undergone a refurbishment totaling around half a million pounds. The Red Lion now boasts 8 individually designed bedrooms, all of which are en-suite and some are suites. We have a formal restaurant, a relaxed snug dining area and comfortable bar with a great selection of lagers, ales, wines, premium spirits and champagnes. We are situated on the town cross in the centre of Wareham, the gateway to the Jurassic coast. Wareham is beautifully placed to tour the South coast. NB Please disregard any comments pre-July 2011 as they relate to previous operators. ... more less
