Positive Reviews

Clean and comfy

The Red Lion is an old pub that offers accommodation as well. Guests have enjoyed the basic but charming, clean and comfortable accommodation on offer. Beds and comfy and offer a good night's rest.  Though some rooms have shared bathrooms, they are described as clean and tidy.

Great food

People staying at the B&B as well as visitors there for a meal have very good things to say about the food served. The helpings are hearty, the level of service is great and the quality of food receives overall positive comments.

Value for money

This is a no frills hotel that still offers good value for money feel a lot of guests. The location is good and easy to find. Parking is available quite easily said a few guests. Most guests agree that the B&B is good for shorter stays.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms

Several of the B&B's rooms have shared bathrooms while some have en suites. This poses obvious problems of a lack of privacy and convenience for many guests.

Hot, noisy rooms

Rooms at The Red Lion are described as being very hot “like a sauna” said one guest. Also the fact that noise tends to carry from other rooms and from the pub, which has music and entertainment in the evenings, was problematic for some guests; particularly those looking to have a restful, early night. The rear of the pub also hosts functions that can be noisy and disturbing.

Poor breakfast

Several guests found breakfast to be poor and below the general high standard of food offered. The choice is poor and service is disorganised, said guests.
