The beautiful courtyard triggers expecations, which are then not met at all.The Red Lion could be a great place, if it was not for this very apparent lack of attention to premises and service. Overall, the place is in urgent need of refurbishing. In the breakfast-room, right next to our table, there were thick layers of dust on some decorative strips along the wall, presumably caused and left by maintenance work and not cleaned up after. It is details like this one that show an apparent complete lack of attention from the side of the management. Breakfast-service was rather unhelpful, too, and the breakfast buffet is nothing to write home about at all. Also, it may well happen that certain breakfast items are not available on a given day, fair enough. If this happens with the same item two days in a row, though, then one seriously wonders who is in charge of kitchen management.
On top, staying in the four-poster bed room in July brought us close to a heat-stroke. I am not blaming the hotel for the fact that there is no aic-con, since in smaller places this is rather the exeption country-wide. However, the fan which was supposed to be in the room was not there, and when we asked for two fans at the recpetion they turned out to be locked away in a storage - room for which noone had the key. All in all, completely overrated. Stay somewhere else. less
