Booked for one night and extended to three. Don't be put off by shabby appearance in hotel, whole place could do with complete refurbishment but it was clean, beds very comfortable, staff friendly and helpful and food excellent.

Stayed here overnight whilst travelling back from France so only about 10 minutes drive from the ferry port. We had a downstairs room which was opposite the party venue (The Stables) where a wedding reception was being held. We thought it might be noisy but didn't hear anything even though the windows weren't double glazed - possibly just tired so slept through it all!!

The room itself was comfortable, spacious and clean even though perhaps a little tired (although we understand a complete refurbishment of the hotel is imminent). The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a very good meal in the restaurant that evening - the menu had plenty of choice and the service was good.

The rate included a full English breakfast next morning which was plentiful, so overall very good value for money.

The hotel is in the centre of town and has its own well secured large car park which is unusual - and it is also free which is a bonus. Would happily stay there again if in the area and recommend to family & friends.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a first floor room to avoid possible noise from function room on ground floor.

Had a minor issue with the (inexperienced) receptionist on arrival who would not accept a Circle Hotels voucher. The rest of the staff were very friendly and obliging. The selection and quality of the breakfast was of a very high standard and the serving staff could not do enough for us. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We were informed on our departure that the rooms will be renovated later this year.

If you wish to hold a family party or function you could not do better than the " Stables" function room at Fareham's Red Lion Hotel.
The whole team contributed to a wonderful weekend, topped off with a Saturday night Ruby Wedding party for over 70 guests.
The venue is excellent; the food, outstanding and the staff amazing.
I have previously attended a wedding reception and the New Year's Eve party at this venue and the standards of service, quality of food and organisational efficiency has been consistently high.
Highly recommended

Room Tip: I understand the Hotel is about to have a major refurbishment so should be even better.

Booked our wedding reception for here on 26th April 2014.
What an absolutely fantastic day we had! Alison and her team were brilliant, very efficient and attentive and made sure everything ran smoothly. The food was gorgeous and the evening disco and DJ were brill too. Absolutely nothing bad to say about the redlion, my husband, myself and all our guests had a truly fab time and I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a reception/function.
