The Red Lion Hotel in Luton, owned by Stonegate Pub Company, has now reopened following a £230k extensive refurbishment.
The pub group, with head offices in Luton, has given the Grade-II Edwardian building and its 18-bedroom hotel a facelift in time for the summer.
The Red Lion is made up of a group of 19th century and Edwardian buildings, home to four function rooms, a premium ‘Brooks Bar’, a poolroom, two bars and the 18 bedrooms, all of which have been given an upgraded.
Speaking to the Luton on Sunday, general manager Kim Finan said: “The Red Lion has a great atmosphere which is why we focussed on keeping the character.
“Regulars were so positive about how we have managed to keep the charm and original features against a backdrop of contemporary furnishings.”
