There was nothing in particular outstanding that I could say I liked - The room furniture was quite good though.
The breakfast was a bit rough. Worse on the second morning where some of the items weren't even edible.. Much of the place looked a bit tired with scuff marks on paintwork. Our room was a "luxury" or "club" room - Quite liked the furniture. Bed wasn't a "proper" bed, but headboard screwed to the wall and a loose divan. Underneath the pillowcases I noticed the pillow tops were a bit stained. Didn't dare take the cases off to check the whole pillow! Bath panel was poorly fixed and some of the work was very DIY style. TV (although, granted, not used that much by us) was a bit on the small side for a "luxury" room. Would have been very annoyed if I'd paid much more for the room. Description of "luxury" is pretty questionable. It was passable. Although we weren't too bothered it's a bit much to be informed a week beforehand that there is a party going on until midnight (right under your room, as it turned out). If we'd had to be up early it would have been difficult, if not impossible to get another hotel in that time - plus we had a non refundable room contract. A bit naughty.
Very polite staff Comfortable bed Close to train station
not so new, it looks a bit outdated. That doesn't really affect the comfort though. It lacks a plug near the bed.
The location of the place
The mattress and the pillows were uncomfortable the room was drafty and cold
The lady on reception in the evening was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good. The old part of the hotel, where I stayed on this trip, is much more characterful than the new wing. You have a view of the busy pedestrianised street instead of car parks and, if your room is over the bar, you can get the free wi-fi there.
Christmas season means parties (which the hotel warned me about in advance) and, while the noise was not much of a problem for me, the strain on the kitchen meant that dinner in the hotel was subject to long waits and as a result was not recommended by the staff. There are plenty of restaurants around though, but not much choice if you are looking for British food. There was a rather offputting bloodstain right in the middle of the desk chair in the room. Not the hotel's fault if thoughtless guests sit around naked and they will doubtless fix it when they notice it.
Car parking facilities good.
Specifically asked for quiet rooms. On arrival it was party nights for my two night stay and was told we would get suitable room. Noise continued on both nights till 12.30 and was very load. Due to it being party nights all normal facilities eg bar hetc were not available. Only given 1 days notice of noisy party and no notice of loss of facities. Totally disappointed and a weekend spoilt.
All staff were very pleasant and helpful. Even though there were social events going on, your soundproofing was excellent and we were not disturbed at all. .
window can not be locked, toilet door can not be closed. seems bed's mat is very old and uncomfortable to sleep.
nice staff very good breakfast
hotel a little run down but very clean
Breakfast excellent Friendly staff
Well worn bathroom and bedroom carpet with stains (room 27)
Central location, great for restaurants and bars
Excellent location good breakfast friendly staff
Room size, cleanliness and abundant facilities
Restaurant staff at breakfast friendly and helpful
An excessive price of £124 per night - well overpriced
Room was clean and the location was good.
Décor was tatty - stains on ceiling above shower. TV almost fell off the wall when tried to adjust slightly. The room was advertised with a bath and it had a shower, I asked reception if there was another room available with a bath and was told that you were fully booked!! On a Tuesday evening???
A huge improvement from my last stay, tea and coffee available, needed a remote control for the tv, this was provided immediately. Staff really helpful and friendly. Breakfast lovely. Room was spotless and warm. It definitely helped going for a standard double instead of a small double, it felt for more adequate.
Staff very pleasant. Room nice and large.
Bathroom and decor a little tired.
The hotel was very clean and comfortable!! It was also very homely and the bed was the comfiest hotel bed ive ever slept in! The breakfast was also very good!! Right in the centre of town with bars, clubs and restaurants within 5mins walk!!
No fridge in room and no wifi in room!
The staff were friendly and the room was clean.
Expensive wifi in the room( a real bug bear of mine). Bed not very comfortable and very basic room for not a cheap price. I have paid a lot less for an awful lot better. The hotel appeared to need some tlc and on checking out I did see a notice of administration which may explain that, Sorry to say I will not be staying again should I visit Basingstoke.
Receptionists very pleasant as was cleaning staff. Food provided for breakfast was good.
The restuarant staff were quite indifferent - no cleared table when we arrived in dining room and after standing around for some time had to ask if a table could be cleared for us and then had to ask for tea and toast.
Good location and handy for town and place i was doing business
Food was a bit bland and if price was £20 cheaper i would agree the value was excellent. But at £86 for night it was a bit steep. Also 1 member of staff was a bit rude and unhelpful. Only minor picky point in what was a reasonably good visit
Staff were helpful and friendly. Sorted out any problems well.
Noise on the Saturday when there was a wedding which on until very late
very clean in a good location for my needs
very poor bed and very old hard pillows putting two very floppy pillows in one pillow case making them very hard mattress needs binning as springs could be felt where ever you laid the door to the pavement was locked when i came back at 8.45pm. It is a shame as i stayed on28-9-14 in room 7 the bed was still past its sell by date but not quite as bad i will be coming to basingstoke quite often to visit my mum in a care home and to visit family but will not be staying at the red lion again this last visit was in room 6
central position with parking, good sized room, good buffet breakfast
our room needed updating, shower was scaled up making ineffecient
Breakfast was very good and the hotel was central to the town
The bathroom was a little dated
