I walked into this quaint old lady of a hotel and was instantly charmed with the lovely old flagstones and the tasteful decor. Having read some of the previous reports on here, I was worried about what we'd find and I can only come to the conclusion that there is NO pleasing some people.
We too were on the Groupon scheme and were perfectly satisfied with the food - not loads of choice but enough and the ambience was lovely at dinner.
The bed linen appeared to be of a high quality, freshly clean and pressed and the room was warm and cosy.
It really irritates me when people use Tripadvisor to 'have a vent' when they're perhaps having a bad day - sure if a hotel is shockingly bad then fair enough but we really felt that the vast majority of the comments on here are hugely unjustified. We had a fab weekend away and would go to the Red Lion again any day!
