Recent visits have included a girls' birthday lunch just before Christmas, a really excellent fun occasion and a private party dinner in February for around 50 people. On both visits the food and service were impeccable while the helpful and attentive staff look after every guest as if they were old friends. Very peaceful estate setting with lovely mature trees...

I stayed here a few years ago for a wedding and had a great experience, so I was looking forward to returning. On my previous visit, I had a very large room (maybe I was lucky on the room allocation), but the room we were in this time, Elm, was very small and pokey. It had a very modern interior,... More

When you think about Great Britain - you think about beautiful landscapes, stunning and cosy mansions, manicured gardens and good food (most good chefs are english). All this and much more is obtained at Lainston House. Summer, spring and autumn always a reason to travel there. I have already been there 2 times and each stay was relaxed, peaceful and... More

We had a lovely afternoon tea for mothers day, as there was quite a few of us and we were given our own room. It was all tasty food and well presented, I recommend this for anyone looking for a quaint celebration.

My husband and I took his mum for Afternoon Tea at the Lainston the day before Mothers Day. I have had Afternoon Tea in a number of places so I was looking forward to seeing how the Lainston compared, My Mother-in-law really enjoyed it, and so did I.

Liked the hotel, although w felt (small point) the seating in the bar wasnt in keeping with the age of the room. Dinner was excellent and it was a very nice... More

Beautiful situation and superb dinner. I had booked two rooms on line a few weeks before but on arrival found they were on opposite sides of the hotel. One room was fine but the other looked tired. General atmosphere lacking too. Some staff were very helpful, others less so. Deluxe rooms - and full English breakfast paid for as an... More
