Not a bad hotel, but no air con. Instead they have the heating on. Staff are friendly and happy to help. The bar staff were excellent. Breakfast is not very nice and a bit of a strange affair. Some bits to order and some out, although maybe cold or under cooked. A little pricey for what you get but overall... More

My room, 219, was relatively small for a triple, with little free space, but along with the rest of the hotel, had a good safari feel to it. The bathroom was very small, with insufficient lighting and towel racks, and low water pressure in the shower. Everything else about the hotel was exemplary, particularly the service. I was practising my... More

Marwell Hotel is very slightly off the beaten track for commuters being about 20 minutes from the M3 but it is ideally suited to the wildlife park (being on the same site). The hotel is loosely themed as an African Lodge, and the parkland setting helps give that impression from the outset, as does the wooden cladding and large open... More

We stayed for one night on route elsewhere. I rated this average because it was let down by the standard of room. Our room felt a bit tired and dated. Some decoration and refurbishment would be needed to score this hotel higher. However, the safari theme gives it more appeal and character than most modern hotels. The staff were very... More

We booked the Marwell hotel as it was a stones-throw from a family gathering we were attending and the fact that it was in close proximity to Marwell zoo certainly appealed to my animal loving husband and myself. Sadly though, the hotel failed to live up to expectation on all fronts. The hotel itself is actually situated directly opposite the... More

My partner and I stayed at Marwell Hotel for a wedding. The setting and room for the wedding was really lovely and a well organised day. The room was comfortable, apart from the sun shining through the underneath of the curtain on the shorter window and we experienced a fire alarm going off twice throughout the night with no explanation...

We had a lovely stay, with 14 of us in total over 7 rooms. They were all fine for what we needed. Some of us enjoyed a swim on arrival. Hotel is very warm considering it wasn't so hot outside, but we did have a fan that we used. Staff were helpful to us and let us sit and relax... More

Our daughter's wedding was held at Marwell Hotel last month and a large group of guests travelled from Somerset to stay two nights. Overall, we all had a fabulous weekend in a great location and the wedding was amazing. The chalets were quite comfortable but we felt could do with an update and, because it was a very warm weekend,... More

unfortunately this was a huge dissapointment! Fire alarm went off twice throughout the night with no explanation as to why this was. there were two weddings going on and the alcohol in the front bar was limited due to this, downside being you were not permitted to use the other bars as these were 'for wedding partys only'. Noise level... More
