    the staff were very helpful in checking in and local information

    An alarm sounded in the early hours, around 2.00 am. In the morning a note was under the door apologising and stating that it was due to 'the heat exchanger in the plumbing, therefore some rooms will have little or no hot water', there was no hot water to shower or even wash. A note under the door didn't go anywhere near enough to compensate for this.

    I liked the location for both shops and surrounding areas which i needed to travel to. I also found the free internet access useful.

    Room was very clean and had a comfortable bed. Breakfast was well cooked and nicely presented. Location is handy for shops and quite central.

    When I was about to leave, I fond that my car battery was flat. I enquired about a jump start or if the hotel kept a battery booster but despite being told that 'this happens quite often' I was offered no help whatsoever and had to pay for a taxi to come and jump start my car. Perhaps the hotel could invest around £65 - £75 for a battery booster as a customer service. Only other problem was that our room was directly adjacent to the car park barrier which meant cars stopping and revving etc directly outside our window but, obviously, someone has to have this room and it was not too great a problem

    The food was excellent both in the evening and at breakfast. The staff were all very friendly and polite: reception, bar staff and catering staff. The room was clean and comfortable.

    I was very disappointed to find only one weak ale as I booked to go there because they said they had a good range of ales. I was also disappointed by the so called 'free' use of the local LA Fitness facility being subject to a £9 charge for a lock for the locker. Needless to say, I left without actually using it. I was woken up all night by a very rattly extract fan in my bathroom. I couldn't get the 'free Wi-fi' to work in spite of following the given instructions.

    Well run, friendly bar and positive, well trained bar staff. Nice, clean room.

    In room 202, the window to the road did not close properly and banged in the wind all night. The bathroom door did not close fully.

    Superior room was excellent for comfort and cleanliness.Located in the more modern stables block, was quiet and spacious.

    Pool at la fitness was good, but sauna not working so a little disappointed.

    Close to town centre, good breakfast, clean room.

    Cleaners around too early in the morning.

    The ease of parking at the rear of the hotel and the inclusive English breakfast was good.

    The decor was somewhat dated and could do with an update.

    we were attending a funeral at stubbington and the hotel location was ideal for us. The room was clean and very comfortable,and the carpark was secure.Breakfast was cooked to order and the quality was excellent.

  • Older travelers

    Nice size rooms, extra pillows in room, breakfast slow but freshly cooked to order, and good selection.

    Bit noisy as room above reception, smoking area and opposite entrance to function room (room 7)

    We have stayed at the red lion on a number of occasions as my partner is in the navy and we attend the officer balls at hms Sultan. And we love it, its very friendly, clean, great value for money, the breakfast is fanstaic, and the location is great for us, I have recommended it and would definalty stay here again.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The location was good, with the added bonus of a car park. Breakfast was enjoyable with a good choice of fruit and also cooked items. The towels were large and fairly fluffy.

    This is an old and tired hotel, with a saggy bed and no stool for the dressing table. Neither was there a hint of toiletries. I was glad I was prepared, and only staying for one night.

  • Older travelers

    We had a great room with a four poster bed, breakfast included for an excellent price. Right in the high street of Fareham so was an excellent location. Had an excellent meal of fish and chips, lovely fresh fish. Staff really friendly, nothing was too much trouble, we e-mailed the night before to see if we could check in earlier than stated because after travelling over 4 hours we needed to freshen up and change our clothes for a family funeral, they phoned me to say this would be no trouble, so we checked in earlier, so many thanks to the staff who made this possible as we were attending a family funeral.
