Stayed for one night, for £380 diner and breakfast package. The room was pretty small and the bed was iron and just wasn't comfortable. The bathroom was very good,but the jaccuzi part of the bath was broken and the shower had a lot of mould in it. The staff were very good and helpful. The dinner was very disappointing and... More

Chosen primarily for location to meet up with friends for drinks one evening prior to attending Goodwood Revival. We'd had a disappointing meal here the previous year so opted for a bar meal instead, but a newly appointed chef has completely transformed the dining experience and our meals this time were of Michelin quality. We were upgraded to a lovely... More

Lovely hotel and grounds.Room was special as you would expect and the bathrooms exceptional-big jacuzzi bath and rainfall side and overhead walk in shower. Food was somewhat dissapointing after previously eaten at one of the sister hotels which was in my opinion of a higher standard. We had the taster menu in Winchester though and a la carte in the...

A fantastic place to relax, unwind and enjoy a little luxury. A beautiful location and enough grounds to not need to leave the property. Food excellent with many ingredients grown in the garden and others locally sourced. Staff, particularly front desk, very friendly and helpful. We also took advantage of a bird of prey experience on site which was well... More

A cute manor which combines grandeur with a warm welcome. What stood out most were the excellent and dedicated team who went to great lengths to accomodate guest's every wish. The views from the upper floors and the terrace are pretty and the property is surprisingly close to the historic centre of Winchester.

We stayed here for one night and we were impressed by the beautiful gardens and driveway leading up to what is a very impressive Hotel. We were greeted well and taken up to our room which was an attic room, well appointed but no air conditioning and it was a hot day. There was a ceiling fan but unfortunately this... More

I stay here on a regular basis for business and absolutely love it. The house is stunning, the staff wonderfully helpful, professional and friendly. The food is lovely and the rooms are amazing. Each one is different, ranging from contemporary design through to classic country house. The Ruby room is my favourite so far - stunning suite! The owls and... More

The approach up the sweeping avenue is impressive as is the entrance courtyard.I am not a fan of valet parking but as the overflow carpark appeared to be located in a neighbouring county I relented. Our room on the ground floor was ok but nothing special and the window had to be kept open as there was no air conditioning.... More

WOW, What a place! On arrival we had been upgraded to a beautiful suite. I think this was due to a wedding in the grounds and the disco was on till midnight, prehaps they were keeping us sweet due to the noise?!?! Either way, i heard minimal noise with the windows open so no problem to me. The dinner menu... More
