We wanted a weekend away from home, but didn’t want to travel too far, so we chose this hotel. It’s right opposite Marwell Zoo too! When we arrived on a dark rainy night it was difficult to spot the main entrance (the following day we saw that signs do exist, but they are not lit at night). We’d have to... More

Enjoyed the stay, friendly and efficient reception at check in, room comfortable although noisy neighbours but they did have a wedding reception booked during our visit. A little pre warning may have been helpful in this respect. Apparaently they had just changed their menu, very good & well presented loved the pre-dessert sampler never had that previously. Wine selection modest... More

A place in the woods? Yes please, relaxed, quiet & with the usual leisure facilities, but oh the Dining. Great fine food at relaxed prices! Dont visit unless you intend to dine there. This is the difference that makes Marwell stand out & the animals next door of course. Give it a go!

We only stayed at this hotel for one night, the staff could not be faulted in any way, parts of the hotel itself require a re-vamp, especially the corridors and guest bathrooms. Really good if wanting to visit the zoo next door.

Having been to the zoo a few times I've previously parked in the car park and occasionally been in for a beer. A good friend had chosen this venue for his wedding and due to it being an all day do, with copious quantities of booze an overnight stay was vital. Check in was a bit late for us at... More

Having first looked at the reviews and subsequently talking to an answer phone at a "highly recommended" B&B in Colden Common who didn't have the courtesy to reply, I booked into the Marwell Hotel. Being located next to the zoo it is not difficult to find, with plenty of room for parking and easy access to the Reception and Bar... More

Usually stay at a different hotel when on business in the Southampton area. However, due to late booking I ended up at the marwell hotel. As I approached the hotel down some dark lanes I thought I had got lost but was very pleasantly surprised when I eventually arrived. First impressions were very good, great location in a wooded area,... More

We attended a wedding here.. found the public and function rooms to be bright and cheerful, but lacking in any character..I expected a hotel next to the wildlife park and with the same name perhaps to ahve some kind of identity .. perhaps of a safari lodge maybe? Public toilets behind reception were clean ,but again tired with loose faucets... More
