My friend and I just stayed at the Red Lion from mon - fri.
An unexpected treat was to be placed on the top floor with two spacious bedrooms for the price of one and excellent wiews.
Our room had a bathroom with a tub and also shower options, plenty of hot water and working fan in the bathroom.
There was cable TV / Radio and a fridge / minibar.
It felt much like having our own loft appartment - In March this was lovely - suppose it could be a bit too hot in summer.
Old, quaint and charming hotel - be aware that you need to carry your suitcases up and down all the stairs, and ours were quite heavy after some some serious shopping.
But we're in no way fit, and still managed without problem.
Friendly, but in no way 'in -your-face' staff in the reception
Be aware that reception is staffed from 07:00 - 19:00 only - so you need to call ahead if you arrive late. Guests are provided with their own set of keys - and if you, like us, share rooms but have an acute fear of losing your key and / or have somewhat different ideas of what time proper bedtime is - an extra key is provided for you.
According to my friend, the complemetary brekfast was nice.
I myself very much enjoyed the coffee machine in the reception area - excellent coffee - and you're also allowed to bring a cup to your room.
Beeing a caffeine - addict I would easily have given an extra half star for a kettle in the room and a few packets of instant coffee (again allow for a lot of stairs + lazy in the morning).
I like to sleep in - was awoken by bin-collectors a couple of times in the early morning, but when I closed the windows the sound was properly muted, and I had no prob. falling asleep again.
Also to our surprise: we apparantly had our very own brick-a-brack loving ghost living on - and lovingly furnishing- the roof :-)
I would not hesitate to book this hotel again or recommend it to someone else.
