Old traditional hotel, quaint structure & features
I stayed here a few years ago, the hotel is a little more worn down in places. The WC in my room was not working properly, after it was "looked at" it still wasn't. Reception promised to get it "looked at" again but it remained difficult to flush throughout my four day stay. Reception hoped that I wouldn't break the handle through repeated attempts to get thevflush to work....... getting it fixed properly didn't seem to be of much concern. Breakfasts were interesting. Nice pleasant staff but the range of breakfast has reduced since my last stay. There was a high proportion of tradsemen staying over, presumably on good (reduced) rates driving down the income and forcing the hotel to reduce scope of breakfast? I looked at the evening menu but decided to eat out. Twice in four days my main breakfast (eggs) arrived before I had managed to finish my cereal starter. Once it was plonked on my table, the next day it was taken away to "be kept warm" while I finished. The final day I didn't bother with eggs. Nice staff, cheeful and helpful (unless it meant fixing the bathroom), slightly dates decor in need of renewal. But lots of nearby good restaurants for evening meals.

No frills, does what it says on the tin
Great location for Fareham/Portsmouth/Port Solent. Close to the High Street and bus routes, about 10/15 mins walk from the train station. Hotel is part of the Greene King chain. Has a decent pub with DJ (on Saturday) and many rooms. Parking is free for visitors staying overnight otherwise is paid for. Stayed in a standard double room. Decent size. Internal bathroom and as soon as we walked in, the strong smell of bleach hit us, which prompted us to open the sash windows (bit heavy and required 2 people to open). Bed was a bit lumpy with a dent where so many have slept in. Headboard was leather and a bit worn/faded. Rusted shower head/grabrail. Water pressure and temp was good. Can hear other people having a bath, sloshing water. Pipes are loud. Fairly near the room, can hear traffic come morning. in my opinion, the room requires updating. Decent enough wifi. Breakfast was fine, good selection. However, if none of those things bother you and you are only staying for a short time, then it does what it says on the tin.

We have stayed at the Red Lion on a few occasions, this time we were disappointed with the breakfast, I had porridge served which was like hot milk with oats floating in it, when mentioned to a member of staff the response was, well it comes out of a packet we don't make it here, I tried it again on the morning of leaving and it was fine. Tea, coffee and milk was not refilled one morning, I appreciate these are small things but we have never had problems before and small detail can make a difference.
