    Location is excellent, bar staff excellent and hotel staff

  • Older travelers

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good.

    The first room we had was small and very stuffy. The shower room was very substandard. The bed far too soft. The second room we were given after we complained was larger but again the bed was very soft, and the room was stuffy. We couldn't leave the window open although we were on the first floor because outside the window the laundry bags were piled high and anybody could have climbed up and into the window. The only place that was cool was reception. The whole hotel looked tatty and uncared for. Although staff were extremely good.

    Car Park

    Location of Superior Room opposite noisey pub. Rusty Water. Mattress. Lack of contact from the manager as arranged with receptionist.

    It was well located for my purposes.

    The water was dirty, the room was gloomy and my hairdryer didn't work. I would have highlighted this to the hotel staff if I had more time before checkout.

    I use the Red Lion frequently to visit friends and family in Basingstoke. I'm always able to find reasonable rates and the staff are always friendly and helpful

    On this particular stay we had room 33 which is on the top floor. The room is smaller than other rooms I have stayed in at the hotel and smelt badly of burning. I think it was due to the radiator. Also it was very difficult to get the right temperature in the shower. This was a one off though and on future visits I will try to avoid that room.

    The rooms were of a good size

    I could hear the people in the next room really clearly. Luckily they were very quiet in the night.

    Location is excellent and staff very welcoming and helpful

    Room was too stuffy, and carpets needed a good clean or replacing. But over all a lovely stay had.

    The car park was handy, given that the hotel is in the town centre.

    Surly staff. No ironing facilities for business travellers. Food at dinner and breakfast was of very low quality indeed.

  • Couple

    It's a pleasant hotel in a central location. Room had everything you could need, including en suite, tea and coffee, iron and tv. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were using it a base to visit family and visit London and it was 10 minute walk to the train station, and right in the centre of Basingstoke to accessing shops and other facilities.

    The walls were thin and so one night, with particularly inconsiderate neighbours it was noisy with banging doors in small hours, though this is not really fault of hotel, just guests!

  • Older travelers

    Was central and suited purpose

    Noisy streets - could be better sound proofed.

    i didnt like the fact that hotel staff (possible chamber persons) were shouting up and down the corridor early in the morning approx 0700! asking for different kinds of bed linin!

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The staff were very helpful. My room was clean and comfortable. I wish I had had more time to explore the shops!

    I was not prepared for the noise from the night clubs and youngsters shouting in the street in early hours.

    Location

    Shower was absolutely useless. The trouser press didn't work The cooked breakfast was stone cold, even the heated toast was cold.......in fact only the tea was hot!

  • Single
    7.8

    Conveniently located and within 5 mins walk to mall and bus station. Hotel itself is quite average. It suited me perfectly as I could go out to eat and catch the bus/train whenever required. Staff was polite. Overall for 55p per night is was a good deal.

    The washroom had separate taps for hot and cold water!! So you could only choose between burning hot or icy cold water to freshen up. Shower/tub was ok. Windows need better sound proofing as it can get quite noisy if there is heavy traffic or a rowdy group out on the road.
