I was traveling about England (I live in NYC) for my birthday on a literary themed solo tour, and decided on St. Mary's Hall for my Jane Austen (Chawton cottage) leg of the tour. I didn't realize what a treat I was in for. Joan welcomed me warmly and actually set me up in a larger suite due to the... More

Really great bed and breakfast, beautifully presented and in a great location close to Alton town centre but also ideal for country walks. Joan was a great host, fabulous breakfast and made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be staying there again!

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a luxurious accommodation just outside the town centre. With a classic 1947 MG, secure parking overnight was a key requirement visiting Alton, and St Mary's Hall was just what we needed. Indeed, it was only a few minutes walk to the town centre, so, with excellent advice from Joan, we visited an charming... More

We really enjoyed staying at St Mary's Hall B&B. Joan and Jack really made us feel welcome. The Garden suite was excellent, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. A great nights sleep followed by a high quality Breakfast mad with local ingredients, we couldn't ask for more.

As the title says, a delightful B&B! Joan and Jack are very kind and helpful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room - The Knights room is very tastefully decorated and my husband who is 6ft 4ins was extremely comfortable as the bed was huge! Breakfast was brilliant and there was a choice of cereal, fruit, full english and... More

We received a warm welcome from Joan and were shown to the Garden Suite, which is a large double room with en-suite bathroom in a separate building from the main B+B. It was well-equipped and quiet with views of the garden. The B+B itself is approx. 20 mins' walk from Alton Railway Station and is in a residential area just... More

We stayed for two nights at the St Mary's Hall B&B while walking in the area. The B&B accommodated walkers and was very welcoming, friendly, helpful and comfortable, with an excellent breakfast. The premises were an interesting chapel conversion. We also took advantage of an offered packed lunch, very useful when walking the final stages of the Three Castles Way... More

I spent one weekend of my UK trip over at Alton for its close proximity to the Austen sights, and I'm so very glad I did. Jack and Joan met me when I arrived and got me settled in with a pot of tea and helpful instructions on how to get to Winchester and a booklet on the bus services,... More

My husband and I stayed for one night whilst attending a friend's birthday in the area. Our friends recommended St Mary's Hall Bed and Breakfast, and what a great recommendation! Very charming B&B. The owners Joan and Jack were most welcoming, courteous and professional. We placed our order for breakfast and then we were shown to our Garden Suite room... More

I have stayed in several gorgeous bed and breakfasts in the Uk and Ireland. What sets this place apart from others is the owners Jack and Joan. They put a lot of thought and effort into maintaining high standards of service and accommodation. Two examples of this - the breakfast uses as much local produce as available. Their food is...
