Just spent all week at the Red Lion Basingstoke. Firstly the location is perfect, easy parking and everything you could want within a few minutes walk.
The rooms though, are dated with very poor plumbing and proberbly the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in at a hotel. So bad that I had to lie on top of the duvet to use it as padding to protect me from the lumps and bumps of the matress. The soundproofing is non-existent ( you can hear people coming and going and doors opening and closing all the time) The price I had to pay to stop here, was very expensive and totally overpriced for the quallity of the place. All in all I couldn't wait to get my business finished so that I could leave. I spend 90% of my working life stopping in hotels and this is the first time that I have ever felt compelled to warn people about a place. DO NOT STOP HERE.More
