Stayed for my birthday in a lovely suite. Positives; great staff, excellent food (chicken was amazing), wow factor, great suite, comfortable bed and pillows wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The Falcon experience was absolutely amazing. Negatives; struggling but housing keeping was very poor timing wise knocking late at 2.45pm both days when we just wanted to relax after a mornings...

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, lovely rooms, yummy breakfast. However, at the price and how they promote themselves, perfection was not achieved - simple things like missing toast off breakfast, not delivering the newspaper in time for breakfast, food in the restaurant a little lacking. Worse of all was the noise from a late night party, music banging in our suite... More

Nice welcome from the receptionist who showed me to my room. My car was parked which was great as the weather was pretty awful. My room was beautiful, and looked out into Gardens and a cottage opposite, not terribly private as curtains would have needed to be closed all the time. Dinner was very nice, however portion size was very... More

From the minute we arrived we were treated superbly . The room, the service were all wonderful. We were lucky enough to enjoy the taster menu, what a treat, each and every course was superb . The location of the hotel was ideal and we were in the wonderful Winchester within minutes. I would highly recommend this hotel. Five stars... More

The hotel stay was a present for my Wifes' Birthday and from arrival to departure she felt special. Starting with the people, who were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I get the feeling that this starts from the very top and filters through to every member of staff. Special thanks to Tomas (Bar Manager) for the cocktails and company and... More

This is wonderful hotel in a countryside location. The rooms are excellent, even a television in the bathroom. The food is of a very high standard. Would highly recommend this hotel. Being close to Winchester and the countryside it is ideal fo shopping and exploring

I was lucky enough to sample a seven course dinner extravaganza complete with a different wine for each course. Rather than fill this space with superlatives all I will say is the service, the wine choices, the food, the venue and of course the staff all contributed to a five star experience.

Really disappointed in Lainston. Stayed for two nights at the beginning of November. Answered the internal feedback form but with no response. Grounds stunning, along with kitchen garden and falconery and main part of hotel warm and comfortable. My room was in the annexed area, reached by long corridors and tatty mats that really should be replaced and no lift.... More

My husband and myself stay at Lainston twice a year and enjoy every minute from arrival to departure. The food this time was better than ever. The staff are perfect in every way. So close to Winchester to explore. Thank you and can't wait until next time.

You know this is a classy joint when you drive up the sweeping driveway and then walk up to the main door. The doorman opens the door in front of a blazing fire lined with welly boots. On welcoming you and ascertaining that you have arrived for a pre-booked afternoon tea, personally escorts you to your table in the library.... More
