    Traditional pub/. Inn with modern decor throughout

    Trad English pub/Inn in an 18 century building upgraded to a high modern standard whilst still retaining oldie worldy charm. I always try to stay here when visiting Hythe on business , rooms are immaculately clean and tidy and the landlord and land lady very welcoming as are all the staff. Excellent full English breakfast included in the price and if you fancy taking your evening meal here I can thoroughly recommend - the steaks are particularly good. The Red Lion is located right in the middle of Hythe unsurprisingly in Red Lion Square, and just off the quaint old high street which has an excellent selection of restaurants pubs and bars, including three Gurkha curry houses at my last count. Best place to stay in Hythe, beats the Imperial by far.

    Super little B&B

    Very friendly staff, really clean room and the breakfast was super although a bit noisy as there were other guests who felt the need to shout across the breakfast room. Overall very good value, would definitely stay there again
