We found the staff helpful and friendly. Check in was smooth and our room was clean, spacious, with plenty of storage. It was quiet and set in lovely woodland. The breakfast was very good, offering a good vegetarian option, although the service was a little slow. The wi-fi was very intermittent and we had to stand on the landing outside... More

First of All, I got greeted my very rude and unhappy looking staff, after checking in, I was left carrying my bags on my own without assistance, room was cold, smelt like a caravan and bed was hard. Food was cold and over prices, so annoyed because it cost a lot to stay and I didn't receive what I thought... More

When we arrived in our room it had a connecting door to the room next door. From experience from a previous stay two years ago, we know that noise can then travel easily between the rooms. We asked to be moved as we did last time, when we arrived to the second room it also had a connecting door. We... More

We spent a night at Marwell in March, with two kids under 3. We arrived late at night with two sleepy children and the staff were most helpful in assisting us at check in. The executive room was of good standard, a huge, very comfy bed plus additional single bed, with room for our travel cot. Good quality black out... More

The room was a good size, the bed enormous and comfortable,but the bathroom door would not shut. The nature of the hotel layout means that it can be a long walk and some stairs to get to your room and the connecting corridors do not seem to be heated. The breakfast was reasonable, but the cooked part took a long... More

We took our two children here for two nights and went to Marwell Zoo. The hotel is clean and reasonably modern. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is fine but the food wasn't amazing and was quite expensive for the portions received. There were weddings at the hotel both nights we stayed (we were not advised... More

On arrival the hotel looks quirky & well presented then as soon as you leave reception it is a downhill slide, the corridors are freezing and dirty and just feels as if the place needs a cheer up, the room we had was far enough away from the entrance but sadly the meeting room up above appeared to be hosting...

Two nights away to recover from a busy term. Room good, excellent black out curtains so slept really well. Breakfast good but service slow. Jacuzzi and sauna not working on first night but fixed by the second. Asked for room away from children which they said would do, however the adventure playground was right out side my window! Rather defeated... More

A 2 storey 'log cabin' style hotel built on the side of a Zoo, with a pool and gym. What more do you want? Walking through the corridors with full length windows you feel like you're in the middle of a wooded area - which you are. I only stayed for one night and didn't have time to use the... More
