      • Older travelers

        Really perfect friendliness of the staff. No effort was too much, even if not asked for. Every possible wish was addressed. Same goes for the staff in the restaurant and the bar. Excellent wine selection in the restaurant, really surprising quality and choice.

        The hotel itself could do with a little extra care. A little rusting bath tubs, chips off paintwork are not quite 4 star. And dining room restyling could make it perfect. Still a very nice countryside hotel with the charm of a nineteen century mansion.

        Great value for money, in a very nice location. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Room was very good overall. there is nothing I fault about this hotel at the price.

        Lovely room with superb view over the gardens.

        We stayed in another hotel in the group and were very impressed, so decided to try another Handpicked hotel. We were staying for our anniversary and were made to feel very special. The room was pleasant, comfortable and the facilities showed a great attention to detail. Quality of food and attentiveness of restaurant staff was first class.

        Reception service was terrible. Check in took 15 minutes and the reception manager (not present at first and was clearly on a cigarette break as the smell was unpleasant - not what I'd expect from a 4* hotel) and took 3 interruptions - 2 by phone and one from another guest who rudely interrupted our check-in. Check out, handled by the same person took almost twenty minutes, and I felt sorry for the two foreign guests waiting in front of me who were clearly tired and did not understand what she was saying.

        Rooms were large and well equipped and the breakfast was very good. On the first morning the staff were excellent.

        On the second morning the staff at breakfast were poor. One was rude and the service was very poor. We made a complaint to the manager as we witnessed staff not only being rude to us but also to at least one other guest. They were inattentive and guests were left waiting at the entrance with no-one to show them to tables. Considering the excellent service the previous morning it was very disappointing.

        Fantastic rooms with good decor and appropriate facilities.

        Would prefer a better power shower. The shower over the bath was not very good especially given the low water pressure. The breakfast in the room was a lovely idea but came wit no toast and was a tiny portion. But the rest ofthe hotel was fab

      • Older travelers

        Very comfortable beds, beautiful building and surrounding gardens, excellent staff and great service. The location is ideal for visiting friends, going shopping and very easy to find from major motorways.

        The shower was rather inadequate given the high standard of everything else.

        Great position and very tranquil setting with being good value for money yet retaining alovely feel of luxury.

        Warm and friendly reception. Room was welcoming and breakfast superb.

        We were staying there for a wedding, for which the hotel was the perfect venue.

        Enjoyed everything.

      • Couple
        8.8

        Nice room, helpful staff, and a very pleasant environment.

        Drinks were very expensive, as was the room itself - detracting somewhat fromt he place as a wedding venue. Staff at breakfast seemed to not be on the ball - toast arrived as bread which had not been anywhere near a toaster, which struck me as a very bizarre mistake to make.

      • Couple
        8.2

        The cleanliness and all the facilities in the room. also the lovely grounds.

        The staff at breakfast seemed un- organised.

      • Single
        10.0

        Exquisite hotel, with warm, welcoming and professional staff, gorgeous surroundings, comfortable yet elegant all round. 10/10 for me, I will definitely be going back again.

      • Couple
        7.8

        Nice setting, peaceful. Room very comfortable and relaxing. Staff helpful and friendly.

        The weather was awful but can't blame the hotel for that! Restaurant expensive so we went out for dinner. No hairdryer in room but was quickly rectified by hotel staff.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The location. Only 5mns away from Basingstoke, yet in the middle of nowhere.

        Although we had a lovely weekend, we were disappointed by the Executive Room which we thought was bland, dull and maybe a bit dated. Not enough staff to cope at breakfast (had to wait 50mns to be served) and had to wait 15mns the following morning after having asked to be served breakfast in the room - got a couple of things wrong with our order. These are not major things to be fair but I would say the staff didn't look very happy and this is certainly reflected in the service they give back
