Visited the Marwell for the second time. Staff at the Marwell are exceptional and very well trained, nothing too much for them. Room was lovely and facilities are great including pool to relax. Ordered both room service and ate in the dining room. Room service was fast and food delicious. Dining room was again fantastic service and food was fabulous.... More

I write with regret. As a long time member of the leisure club I along with others enjoy using the pool alongside hotel guests. This becoming a less and less pleasant experience due to the lack of cleaning The floors are filthy around the pool and in the changing rooms and sauna, hair everywhere and grime that looks like its...

We went to stay at the Marwell Hotel for a wedding. After a good first impression, it became more evident that the hotel doesn't care to impress guests to stay again. The wifi only worked sporadically, so did the heating and the shower was in a bad condition. When we told reception about the shower and the internet, they only... More

This hotel is in a lovely quiet location. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. The room was a good size and clean. The pool was small but nice although a little run down. The hotel is a little tired and run down but we did enjoy our stay.

Location is perfect, next to the Marwell wildlife park it's remote location sets a quiet and tranquil surround. Unfortunately the gym is only 2 treadmills and the pool / jacuzzi spa look like they need a clean. The restaurant is dated and features what can only be described as conservatory furniture. The food was nice but on a very limited... More
