The hotel is a retro throw back from metal keys to small double beds. The staff were nice and helpful but all in all it was a far stretch from what you expect. Great location and nice breakfast but I don't think I'll be coming back

Had a very nice experience staying at this hotel, very much near to the festival mall. Everything is reachable at walkable distance.

Handy for the theatrePosted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: The price
Location: The location is good for the shops and the Anvil theatre.
Had a good night in hotel. Stayed here several times now. They had a wedding celebration in hotel but we were on the 3rd floor so no problem there. We did hear a lot of people shouting out in the street as it was a Friday night and there are a few bars in the vicinity, but the hotel did warn us about this.

Sat night stayPosted Nov 14, 2014
Pros: location, free parking, good powerful shower. Nice and clean room and toilet. room was warm and quiet.
Location: Festival place next door. Plenty of shops and eating places nearby.
The free parking and convenient location was an attraction. I booked over internet day before and checking in was easy. The room was good size double and I found it to be clean and surprisingly quiet for a Sat night. I got good night sleep and a great shower in the morning.

Very comfortablePosted Oct 22, 2014
Pros: Great location, nice staff
Cons: The front desk staff knowing the way to the airports, by train, taxi or bus, costs and times. Cafe staff listening to a coffee request.
Location: Spent time with family, so nothing to add.
The Red Lion is comfortable and basic. The room and it's amenities were great. Nothing fancy, but if that is what you are looking for it is just great.

Value for money and convenient hotelPosted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: It was great value for money. Clean rooms and staff were friendly and helpful
Cons: Some paint needed here and there. Reception area in particular looks very down-at-heel
Location: Very close to shopping mall and train station on foot
Booked this hotel as it was a convenient place to stay while visiting my daughter. Room was small but very comfortable and very clean. Overall, though, the place needs a bit of TLC and modernizing- It's a long time since I've seen rooms opened with an actual key! It all looks a bit tired and jaded. Reception in particular could do with updating ( starting with a coat of paint!) and though the staff were lovely and very helpful, they would look better in some sort of uniform( a nice blouse or coloured waistcoat?)

PrimaPosted Oct 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel als tussenstop gebruikt. Daar was het prima voor geschikt. Het zit midden in de stad met genoeg pubs in de buurt. Kamer was klein, maar schoon.

Red Lion - THE place to bePosted Oct 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Booked through hotels.com on strength of room photo and description. Both Business (me) and Leisure (wife). Was a little disappointed that certain aspects were misrepresented by HOTELS.COM but the staff and management at the Red Lion Hotel in Basingstoke were wonderful. They heard what difficulties we had, and were more than happy to cater for us and turned a so-so visit into an astounding MUST VISIT AGAIN trip. Even down to obtaining SOYA MILK and Margarine for my dairy allergic wife. Simply Awesome - keep up the good work - lovely to see 1st class service outside a chain - we will be back time and again.
