Beautifully located hotel in the Hampshire countryside near to historic City of Winchester with a first class traditional service, first class rooms and restaurant. Very relaxing get away from it all location. Has had many famous visitors including ex-presidents Bush & Carter, actors Roger Moore and Michael Caine which demonstrates its pedigree. Not the cheapest hotel in town but as... More

Afternoon tea is not something we do normally. We were given a gift voucher for tea at as a Christmas present so we phoned the hotel to book and duly turned up. The welcome from the phone call to the hotel and arrival was excellent. We were in the sitting room which was laid up for tea so we were... More

A beautiful country house hotel in wonderful setting with scenic views all around. We booked a suite and were delighted to be shown to the Dragonfly suite which was enormous and tastefully decorated.The staff were attentive throughout and we were made to feel very comfortable at all times. We had a light lunch with drinks in the bar area before... More

This was our 4th visit and Lainston House never fails to deliver outstanding quality in every aspect. The staff are amazing; they seem to know what you want before you even ask for it. The food is probably the best out of all the Exclusive Hotels and our most recent room, South Loggia was superb having direct access to a... More

Everything about Lainston House is special, starting with the short walk from the car park down the entrance, passing what must be the remains of 500 year old chapel on the right, to entering the house through what appears to be the back door with over the 30 pairs of brightly coloured wellington boots laying in wait. The small bar... More

Excellent tasting dinner. Very high quality food and and wine. It was good to to a nice old style bar after for more drinks. I thought the service was excellent. Very glad I stayed overnight as the breakfast was first class. Good walk round the grounds in the morning.

I believe a complaint should always be raised in the first instant, with the organization concerned. Following a very disappointing Christmas Lunch in the Dawley Barn I sent a letter dated 27th December to the manager of Lainston House. Regrettably I have received no reply or acknowledgement from the hotel, hence the review below that is essentially the text of... More

These country house hotels can be hit or miss, and I'm pleased to say this place is a hit. Our suite was away up in the rafters of a tower, with sofas, desk, 4 poster bed & a bathroom with finery in decor & equipment. Hotel is very quiet, as the walls are thick and widows double glazed. Quintessentially British... More

Lainston House was the perfect option for us as it is 5 minutes drive from Littleton where we attended a party this weekend.
