The Red lion promises much but can seriously under deliver - its makeover is very seventies, and its staff training and general lack of attention to customer service probably got stuck there as well. Its a shame because it has the makings of a half decent pub - and is set next door to an english heritage old chapel -...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Red Lion, and can recommend it without hesitation. The staff are very helpful, and the breakfast is excellent. There was a bit of confusion about our room on arrival, and there was a lack of cold water there. But these issues were resolved. I would say that the Red Lion at Duxford...

When you look at the photos of the red lion on booking.com it gives you the impression you would be getting a nice luxury stay, my booking confirmation stated that in your room you would receive a sample of local fudge, I booked the hotel thinking it would be a small taste of something special. Negatives: - No sample of...

A group of us stayed here for 2 nights as we were visiting Duxford Airfield (5mins away). Lots of parking (note the sat-nav will likely take you to the wrong place), it's on the same park as the Holiday Inn Express which I later realised are connected. The lady who checked me in was very friendly and whilst my single...

This is only a review of the restaurant. We visited here yesterday for dinner. The restaurant area is off the bar with the conference room coming off that. We were greeted by loud music coming from a birthday party. Fortunately it was a ninetieth party and it stopped at 9. The waiting staff seemed bored and tired. We were greeted...
