Last weekend we did an overnight stay at The Red Lion. I have read some of the adverse comments and although I understand where some are coming from, I don’t share their views. I can only say that our overall experience was good. So, good points first: the staff is friendly and helpful, both at the hotel and at the restaurant. The room (no. 22) was basic but of good size and very clean, with a very big, comfy bed and very clean white bed linen. The evening meal was lovely, good value for money, typical pub food, really good atmosphere. Breakfast was definitely a plus point, a varied menu, well presented, lots of food. I am not a breakfast person and I ended up having their ciabatta with ham, cheese and egg (delicious), pastries, and toast, and there was plenty more to chose from!. It got to 8pm and I was still not hungry...Now, to the not so good points: they seem to have a problem with their roof, so the rooms are suffering and showing unsightly damp stains. It must be demoralising for the cleaning staff, as I said the room was very clean but the first impression was not very pleasant because of the damp stains. And the bathroom is in urgent need of modernisation, again, it was clean but the grout looks grabby due to age and the accessories are tired. Still, this is a £32.50 per person B&B, so I don’t think the bad points are bad enough to complain about. So this is a message for the Old English Inns management: you have good managers and staff working for you here, if you spend a little bit of money on the property you will definitely see the returns.
