Nestled in between the, elegant, Georgian, Henley Bridge and the quite splendid C of E Church of the Virgin Mary with origins back to the 16th Century, is the delightfully quixotic elegantly old and friendly coaching Inn, the Red Lion. I have had the great pleasure of staying here from time to time over the last forty years or so...

I've always loved the location of this hotel - right by Henley bridge, by the River Thames and a short walk from the quaint Town Centre. I chose to treat myself and stay at the Red Lion Hotel for one night to fit in with parties on both Saturday night and Sunday lunchtime nearby. My booking was quick and easy....

I visited Henley on Thames this January with my boyfriend and his family. We stopped in to have a cup of tea. I tried a cream tea for the first time ever and it was amazing. Would definitely come back!

We stayed at the Red Lion for three nights in Late December. It is an amazing hotel with a wonderful history. The facilities are great with a dining room and bar. We booked a standard room but were upgraded to a large one overlooking the river. It had the most amazing furnishings, was roomy and very comfortable. The only negative...

The first impression of he room was excellent, four poster bed wooden floors etc. And to be fair the Bed was very comfortable and the pillows lovely! Shame then that the housekeeping standards are so low! The toilet was not cleaned properly, dirty and used tea spoons in the coffee / tea area, no toilet paper and rubbish left on...

Beautiful Town and setting. I was ready for a fun weekend away at a friends wedding. Had loaded up the playlist with as much Weeknd, Barry White and R&B as I could find.

We thought we were lucky when the hotel said that they could take a booking for about 20 rooms with only 48 hours notice (the hotel we chose had to cancel at short notice) and we wondered why. We found out at breakfast time. First there were no cereal bowls, then no eggs. Eggs arrived, but no plates, and the...

Brought my friend for afternoon tea for her birthday. The room we where brought into was lovely and quaint. We where served prosecco on arrival and given a second glass free of charge. Tea and coffee where offered with our cakes and sandwiches. Unfortunately I found most of the cakes far too sweet and the sandwiches could have been nicer/more...
