Reviews - Red Lion Wendover

4Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
Red Lion Hotel 9 High Street, Buckinghamshire, HP22 6DU
The Red Lion is a traditional 16th Century Coaching Inn steeped in history and tradition and gracefully combining ‘olde world’ charms with a contemporary look and feel. Situated on the High Street in the town of Wendover, the Red Lion offers the perfect location for a weekend away and being less than an hour by train to London offers a relaxed commute into the Capital.

The charismatic Red Lion Hotel in Wendover was reopened in Spring 2008, after a £1.4m refurbishment programme. The inn now offers a twenty-three bedroom hotel as well as a 96 cover restaurant – and the whole building has been given a fresh new look whilst still retaining the building’s historic past. The building is listed therefore the refurbishment has retained several stunning features, such as the beautiful 17th century fireplace and exposed beams. The site has its own place in history and it is in fact rumoured that Oliver Cromwell once stayed overnight at the inn and addressed his troops from one of the upstairs windows!

The Red Lion are proud of the quality of food they serve and take every care to ensure that only the freshest ingredients are sourced from the best suppliers. Diners and drinkers alike can also enjoy a range of real ales and wines, carefully selected from around the world.

Comfortable hotel at a great rate.
We stayed 1 night as a family of four and had no issues. The room was perfect size for us, there was a double bed and a fold up double for the children. The room was clean, warm and spacious. Despite the pub being next door we had no noise issues. Breakfast was also excellent. There was a choice of cereal, pastries and juice and then you could order a full english (cooked to order) or american pancakes with bacon. A great place for a stop over.

Adequate B&B
Stayed for one night and had no quibbles, but not a place I would choose to stay again. The staff were pleasant and the room was okay; breakfast was well cooked and served.
The situation of the pub is unfortunate as the rooms are sandwiched between a noisy road and a beer garden, therefore there are no really quiet rooms. The room was clean, but communal areas were most definitely not.

Bridal suite
Having taken the option of the only available room for our wedding anniversary.i was disappointed to find the four poster bed was just 4 posts at each end of the bed . Nice and comfortable though. The biggest let down was the jacuzzi was in unuseable due to black bits coming out of the jets..
Staff very friendly and overall well situated to see Wendover
Will stay again but sort out the room
