Stayed here on Business in March. I will go back, and recommend it as a 5 star luxury hotel. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, and had 3 dinners. The menu did not change and there was no Irish whiskey, but it was a haven. We met with business associates over dinner, and the taxi service from Winchester... More

We have been invited by one of our suppliers to Lainston House. To say the least, everything was way beyond our expectation. The property is in the middle of nothing but Nature and green. Amazing sceneries anywhere you go (the best is the one out side the Pub and restaurants). The interior was great, you feel you are back few... More

Me and hubby stayed here for 2 nights before christmas and I have only just got around to reviewing it. The hotel was lovely, a former country house. our room in the attic was huge, complete with fireplace and beams with a large bathroom. My 'grips' if you can call them that - cooked breakfast wasn't included in the rate... More

The staff were friendly but not over familiar - just right! The old house is stunning and has been sympathetically converted and enlarged and is beautifully decorated. The food is excellent and there is a good range of wines and other drinks. It is quite expensive but worth it, especially for a special occasion.

This was the venue for a company retirement dinner. It was a very welcoming venue from the entrance hall with its open fire to the cosy library bar. The dinner was held in the Barn - a newer addition to the main building which you got to via an internal corridor so I did not have to brave the elements.... More

We had a fantastic overnight stay in the Delph room which had outstanding views over the Avenue and a very special bathroom suite. The highlight of our trip was dinner in the Avenue restaurant complete with a wonderful selection of wines and a lovely nightcap. The staff were very professional, friendly and discreet. Thank you to all for a lovely... More

I spent my 70th birthday taking afternoon tea at Lainston House Hotel with my immediate familyand was not disappointed! Most beautiful comfy surroundings sitting before a huge open fire. The food was simply lovely. I would definately return.

I lunched with a friend today at the Avenue. We enjoyed first class service and wonderful food. Particularly tasty was the mushroom and blue cheese risotto that began our meals. My dessert, a dark chocolate pot with chocolate sponge and mousse accompanied by home made ice cream was almost too attractive to eat and very yummy. We both ate every... More

The perfect place for a short break after a very stressful week. From the moment you enter the drive and see the house, you just know that you will come away relaxed and refreshed. Wonderfully attentive staff who seem to 'get it just right'. Fabulous ambience and delicious food. This was our third stay and each one has got progressively... More
