Had a great weekend visiting Portsmouth Historic Dockyard works best spread over 2 or 3 days).
Chose to stay at The Red Lion because we know from previous experience that it is a "safe bet". Yes, redecoration wouldn't hurt, but there is a certain amount of charm in the shabby chic especially as we found everything very clean.The room was comfortable and breakfast and dinner in the restaurant delicious. Service was friendly and very helpful throughout. We also managed to get a fantastic deal in one of Old English Inns "flash sales" - join their e mailing list and look out for the bargains!
The hotel is a minutes walk from Fareham's excellent shopping centre. When we came in November my husband was too ill for us to do Portsmouth as planned, so I made use of this proximity to do most of most of my Christmas shopping. Also I made use of the free pass to the adjacent LA Fitness and pool.
As it happened, the spring weather this weekend (7th -9th March) was far more suitable for enjoying all aspects of the Historic Dockyard.
We asked around to see what else there was to do in the area so we would have an excuse to come back to the Red Lion - a home from home.
