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

Beautiful hotel in an idyllic setting. The staff were courteous, helpful and engaging. The food was excellent - we ate al la carte in the restaurant, full breakfast (which wasn't s extensive or well stocked as other 5* hotels we've visited) and experienced a large sit down wedding breakfast (in the afternoon) which was better than average and very well...

The place was very grand, excellent service Choices for the lunch menu were limited, pricey but the quality of food was top notch. Noticed evening meal had more variety. We were able to eat on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Service was prompt

We stayed here on our way to Southampton cruise terminal having previously stayed in Southampton. This is not a cheap hotel but offers classic country house features. Nice grounds, traditional service and an excellent restaurant. The rooms are very individual and quite impressive.
