We stayed for the Sunday night and was very impressed with the service given by Bianca on reception. After enquiring about staying the night with our dog, she showed us to our room which was out in the courtyard and away from the hotels main building. We booked the room as it was perfect for a quick night stay. The...

Firstly let me say read my review but whatever you do book somewhere else. I am an avid trip adviser girl and see people give places bad reviews all the time but mostly because their standards are beyond reasonable expectation. My expectation of the red lion was a) it's central Henley and I would expect it to have/desire a reasonable...

At this hotel they know Groupon is the cheap option, so they gave us a rubbish table, bad afternoon tea with a few dried slices of cake, ONE yes ONE finger sandwich per person and a few paltry cakes. It's hardly an offer as you get very little for your £26 for two. The interior is tired and could do...

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here courtesy of a Groupon voucher. Ate in the bar because we had 2 (well behaved) dogs with us.Certainly above average pub grub and a good choice. Had Sunday lunch which basically was 2 courses plus glass each of prosecco each. Chicken, and the beef, were well cooked and very tasty. Little bit dark and...

We held our wedding reception at the Red Lion in Henley and it was absolutely perfect. The staff were so accommodating from start to finish, incredible with helping us plan our special day and just couldn’t do enough for us. The hotel itself has so much character and in a great location by the river. We stayed in the suite...

I've stayed here before but must have had an upgraded room. This time, my room 102 was so shabby. When I entered the room I was puzzled to see a floor standing fan against the wardrobe. I wondered why I would want a fan in February. When I moved it I found out why, it was propping the wardrobe door...

Service first class. Roast Beef a little on the tough side but quite edible, but! what went wrong with the not so roast, roast potatoes? You can understand that it is not always possible to get everything right but to serve potatoes that were more boiled than roast which did not even have the appearance of having gone anywhere near...

The hotel has a riverside location and easy to walk the very short distance to the shops and centre of Henley. The building is quite charming, a little hodge-pode of buildings together that are very sweet and the public areas are attractively laid out. There is a small residents only parking courtyard. The first room we were offered was very...

Would have been higher as a nice character hotel in a prime location, but for what looks like poor cleaning, especially the shower. (Nicely tiled but a brown grubbiness - tile brush job). Maybe it was simply overdue deep clean in February. That then sensitised to everything else, such as creaky floorboards. Great views across the Thames to the Leander...
