I have reviewed Lainston before, from a business trip perspective (having stayed here 3 nights a week for a year). This time it is from a couples weekend away perspective. Myself and my boyfriend spent our special anniversary here in June '14. I cannot fault a single thing. From Sarah Phillips (Reservation manager) helping to select the perfect room for... More

This is the email I sent to the hotel after our recent stay, and I was very pleased to receive an almost immediate reply from the General Manager which was both informative and constructive: The good news is that the building is wonderful, the extensive grounds are delightful and the staff are friendly and helpful, if not desperately efficient.

We stayed at Lainston House in June, to celebrate our anniversary. Our experience of their sister property, South Lodge, had set our expectations high, and we were not to be disappointed by this property. From the greeting by Reception, through to our departure, any contact with the hotel's team was professional and friendly. The property itself is wonderful with beautiful... More

We arrived here at nearly ten at night, the village was so tiny and quaint but the entrance from the gate leading up to the main building is stunning greenery and the building itself is beautifully preserved. Stunning and classic English country manor house and the staff were so delightfully helpful. Shame we could only stay for one night. A... More

Just returned from this breathtakingly secluded location in glorious Hampshire countryside with outstanding cuisine. It was nice to experience such beauty and also to experience elegant dining at the same time. Stayed in The Wolseley Suite which benefits from dual aspect grand sash windows that provided a fabulous position to watch their Summer Sunday concert of Pirates of Penzance, and... More
