Stayed for a night on business, good location off M3 and nice not to be in a classic chain hotel. Surroundings are great right next to the zoo and the hotel like a safari lodge but needs new mattresses and room smelt damp. Food was great and Could have got an extra star for this alone but breakfast didn't match... More

This unusual hotel has the wooden hunting lodge in the forest vibe with glass-walled walkways joining the various wings. It looks and feels like a time capsule from 1989, which is maybe not surprising given that's when it was built. The bedroom fixtures and fittings certainly appear 25 plus years old. So it could have been terrible but in fact... More

We have just returned from one night away at Marwell hotel. We were greeted by the reception staff in a warm and friendly manor. Our room was quiet, large and very clean and over looked the woods. The bathroom had a selection of toiletries and was very clean with lovely big bath sheets, only negative is the shower was wasn't... More

Rat Central!! And that's not just the outside! Woodland view from bedroom, counted at least 30 rats within an hour. Had the constant worry of what if they managed to get into our bedroom the whole night!! Upon arrival the young girls at reception were very friendly and helpful which made us feel very welcomed. Went to the bedroom which... More

I visited Marwell for my brothers wedding. The hotel is set amongst the trees and modelled on treetop houses I believe. It gave it a very quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and courteous throughout the day. Although I did not stay overnight I was able to see the accommodation other guests were in. The rooms looked comfortable,... More

This is a difficult review as the hotel, service food and facilities are all very varied. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna are really excellent fantastic surroundings. The food is also really lovely, the hotel through is not very clean organised or well furbished it is tired and in need in a good clean throughout,

We were part of a large wedding party stopping for the 16th - 18th July and had a series of disappointments throughout our stay. From the outside the hotel looked great & in a very good setting, surrounded by woodlands and next door to Marwell zoo. However, the majority of our rooms were very outdated, in need of various repairs,... More

The whole place felt like a business in terminal decline. In the 60s Soviet holiday complexes were like the Marwell hotel. Run down no choice. However the family of brown rats saw from my bedroom window seemed happy enough. Two last things - in the 21st Century why is the choice of bar snack for vegetarians limited to an egg... More

I stayed at the hotel in a executive room for a wedding on the 2nd and 3rd of July while England was suffering from a heatwave. This made the hotel very warm and although I had silding doors on to a fire escape communal balcony - the godsend was most definitely the dyson fan ! I found the room comfortable... More
