The Red Lion Stretham
Overall the hotel was a reasonable standard for the money spent.
The room was slightly tatty with a broken light shade dust in the light in the bedroom and broken and chipped tiles in the bathroom. The outside of the hotel needs an overhaul with paint peeling off the windowsills. On the plus side the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious.
Our general impression was that the staff were new or inexperienced in offering accommodation.
We were told that the room was ready. We had arrived a little early and would not have been surprised if we'd had to wait a few minutes but we were shown to the room which turned out not to be ready. We were offered a drink while we waited which was good but the tea was cold. They seemed to use an urn or water heater - and again at breakfast- the water was not hot enough to make tea. A kettle would have been better. The evening meal was pretty good and the breakfast fine. In the early evening there were some noisy people at the bar which was potentially off- putting to diners. The bar staff seemed to be friends of them and chatted away which encouraged more noise. We felt that it was not in the best interests of the pub to approach things in this way. All in all the pub has the potential to be a good option in a nice village but perhaps it needs to consider what its market is and how they could be more customer focussed.
