The Red Lion

Great find. Really enjoyed our one night stay. Shabby chic bar with beautifully kitted bedrooms. No breakfast at present but provided with orange juice and home made yoghurt, plenty of places locally to get breakfast. We stayed on a Friday so noisy in the bar with a disco but all noise finished at midnight and we had a good nights sleep. Staff were great and did all they could to make our stay comfortable. Will definitely stay there again.

We had a lovely greeting upon arrival and were so pleased on opening the door to the room which revealed a really well presented room, beautifully decorated to a very high standard. Our stay was so lovely, we really didn't want to leave.

The location is near train station in town, well located between stores, food market and some fast food restaurants. The room was newly renovated, nicely designed for a family. The room was very clean. The staff was very friendly.
