“Old World Charm with professional attentive staff”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

Just back from a weekend break at The Red Lion Hotel.We stayed in a superior room.The room was exactly as advertised,warm,roomy,bed very comfortable.Facilities were all that a guest would require..Room cleaned daily and toiletries replaced.Staff were very attentive and professional and one could have a laugh with them.It is situated on a quiet road off the main uxbridge road but we didn't hear any traffic noise.There are plenty of bus stops within 5mins walk from hotel,which will take you to Uxbridge,(A fantastic shopping town).some buses also go to central London and tube stations.The area around the hotel is peaceful and one could go for walks in safety and comfort.

Room Tip: Superior room 307(4 poster bed).no traffic noise.

Dear Irishkitten

Thank you for your wonderful feedback, it is always heartening to receive positive comments when guests have enjoyed their stay with us.

We do pride ourselves on going the extra mile for all our guests and are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in one of our Superior Rooms.

As you point out there are buses every few minutes running down the hill into Uxbridge as well as other areas such as Heathrow Airport, Denham and Windsor. We are also only a short journey into Central London by tube.

Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back to Uxbridge in the not to distant future

Kind regards

The Christmas meal on Christmas day was 1st class at the Red Lion Hotel. It was 1st class food, service etc, will most certainly be booking again this Christmas. Well done to everyone involved, you done us proud.
We have recommended the Hotel to our friends, so they can enjoy the hospitality that The Red Lion has to offer. The Red Lion should be a 5 star Hotel.

Room Tip: Everything about the hotel is perfect.

Dear Sandra

Thank you for your kind comments following your Christmas Lunch last year. We look forward to welcoming you back. We already have several bookings for this Christmas which is most encouraging considering we have not got around to discussing it with the Turkeys yet.

Kind regards

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a family event in Hillingdon. The hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet with friendly helpful staff. A bit pricey - but this is outer London.Parking was fine, although the parking area may have been a bit crowded with a full hotel. Restaurant was OK and the full English breakfast excellent - service good. Would certainly use it again should the need arise.

Very nice hotel. Visited Uxbridge on business and stayed in this hotel for a week. Great staff, friendly and helpful receptionist. Room was specious and clean. Very nice restaurant in house. Food was great and prices moderate. I like this hotel much better than LHR airport hotels. Will stay here again if I will be in Uxbridge.

I just stayed at the Red Lion for a night to attend a wedding reception in the area. I lived in Uxbridge for many years, and had always been impressed by the exterior of the hotel, but never actually been there.

It's a charming hotel, and my room was on the ground floor close to reception. Room 101 was spacious, clean and the bed proved to be very comfortable. I had a good night's sleep. Little touches, like nice-smelling toiletries in the bathroom, ground coffee and biscuits in the bedroom, and big choice on pillows made for a cosy night's stay. The temperature in the room was good, a slight touch too warm at some point during the night; this however evened out and didn't disturb my sleep in any major way.

Now I have to mention breakfast. I haven't seen such fantastic choice for a long time, and I have stayed in a good dozen plus hotels over the last year. The continental options included delicious French yoghurt, in glass jars displayed on ice (nice touch), fresh fruit including strawberries, nice cheese, as well as a wide range of juices. Coffee was hot and strong. Pastries soft and delicious. All so different to the chain-hotel breakfast I'd had just a few nights prior to my stay here.

Guests who had breakfast included in their booking could choose any cooked breakfast option from the menu as well. Next time I may try the Full English breakfast.

I recommend this hotel whole-heartedly and will book again next time I come back to the old neighbourhood.

My bedroom had everything I needed: comfortable bed and crisp linens, a clean bathroom, decent toiletries, plenty of hanging space, a small in-room safe and a fridge. It was pleasingly dark once the lights were out, and blissfully quiet.

Pity the shower is of the over-bath type rather than a cubicle - that would annoy me for a long stay but was OK for one night.

The breakfast was an absolute delight. I cannot comment on the continental selection but the full English breakfast was the best I've had in a long time.

Plenty of off-road parking, good pub grub at lunchtime and evenings, lovely ambience and a reasonable price for something so convenient to the motorway/airport. I will definitely stay here again.
