8.2.Very Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Hotel in a great position with lovely sea views, good amenities and looks to have had a bit of a makeover since previous reports of it being dated. The downsides were that the bedroom was way too warm with a big hot pipe running up through it and a heated towel radiator which we were able to switch off. Double bed felt quite small when you’re used to sharing a king sized bed and the temperature made it hard to sleep properly. Woke up with a very stuffy head. Also bathroom door very difficult to open from the inside and had to call my partner to open from the outside. This needs dealing with as if someone is in the room Alone they could potentially get locked in.

    My friend and I fancied a night away and when we arrived at the Red Lea we were given a very warm welcome. We were given our room key and told about dinner, breakfast and the pool and spa facilities. We were also advised that nearby restaurants could be recommended if we told them what sort of food we were after.
