The Red Lion Inn has long been known for its history and top notch inn experience. We stayed for two nights and absolutely loved our room and the service. Unfortunately, the dining experience there left much to be desired. We had what might have been the worst breakfast we've EVER experienced. It prompted us to cancel our dinner reservations for that night and eat elsewhere. As the Inn charges $40 for their prime rib we didn't want to be disappointed after spending an extreme amount of money. Overall, we would DEFINITELY stay at the Red Lion again but keep our dining experiences to restaurants outside the Inn. Read less

My wife had salmon and I had prime rib and both were excellent. The wine we selected was also excellent. The sommelier was superb in his selection for us. We were tired after a long trip and the dinner was just what we needed

The downsides are that the much touted fireplaces create a smoky smell throughout the inn; the stairs and elevators are narrow and difficlut; and the rooms are a mix of… Read more
The Red Lion is a beautiful old New England Inn with an old English ambiance. Fireplaces, wood paneling, wood floors and clapboard siding and big pillored front porch to sit on. The downsides are that the much touted fireplaces create a smoky smell throughout the inn; the stairs and elevators are narrow and difficlut; and the rooms are a mix of renovated odd shapes and mixed convenience of the furnishings. This was the second less than excellent visit to Red Lion; we probably won't go back. Read less

Great service Outstanding food traditional turkey amazing! Warm kind staff welcoming cozy atmosphere. The little details like the beautiful little vase of flowers on the table make dining there even more lovely. This is an all time favorite and in these changing times it is comforting to experience this kind of consistency and excellence.

Quick trip for my husband and I resulted in a one night stay here. The hotel may need some updates, but has great charm.

Quick trip for my husband and I resulted in a one night stay here. The hotel may need some updates, but has great charm. Starting with the ride up the elevator in the lobby to our room, we found uniqueness throughout the property. We had a drink in the bar and the bartender filled us in on the history of the property. We met Norman the lobby cat. Ate breakfast in the restaurant and the food and service were great. The gift shop has lots of interesting items. We had a street facing room which in warmer weather would have been nice to enjoy. However the door did lock behind my husband so luckily i could let him back in. The street was pretty noisy so would pick an interior room next time. Enjoyed my soup sized Diet Coke - staff thought outside the box and made me a Togo!! Read less
