Unfortunately the Red Llion doesn't meet its potential. The location is fantastic and the staff were wonderful.
We had the Coleridge room, what a view, not stayed in many places that could beat that view. However, someone forgot to put it any sound insulation between our room and the one next door. It was obviously an attic room that had been split in two at some stage with thin board, you could hear every word of the conversation going on next door.
The extensive leisure facilities, m'mmm, the pool and jacuzzi were both cold and scruffy and the changing rooms were cold and not very clean.
This hotel was pushing it to be 2star and rather over priced, the biggest asset is the staff, they should be commended for their charm and service. I wouldn't have been prepared to pay £150 a night if I realised it was going to be that poor! less
