I came across the Market Hotel in Alton when searching online for somewhere to stay while on business in the area. What drew me to it initally was the location and the website which described a small quirky individual place to stay. I was so pleased by what I discovered when I got there. The whole place is lovely, this... More

What a beautiful, quirky and friendly hotel. Great retro decor through the hotel and into the bedrooms. Everyone was incredibly helpful and there were some really nice touches to our stay -on retrun from a very lovely day attending a friends wedding the hotel had left 'late night snacks' in case we were hungry. Very attentive and friendly service throughout... More

We had our wedding reception in the 1902 room, the food, staff and service was amazing. The management planned everything with me to make sure our day ran smoothly, it ran that smoothly our day was absolutely perfect with no hiccups at all. They catered for children and also the fussy adult that was in our party, nothing was problem... More

As a business owner - it takes a lot to inspire me to write about a particular establishment as I am critical of service, value for money and In particular...quality. We dropped by for a meal on Steak night Wednesday and have to say was superb. Reminded me of days of old when you could get a quality steak, cooked... More

I met friends here for breakfast which was good decent Full English, the bar areas and function rooms are lovely and cosy. I love the decor of the place and it's got a fantastic atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It's a busy place with lots of events on, will be returning in the evenings soon I think.

The staff were delightful and welcoming at all times. Breakfast could definitely be improved and for £100 a night, it's fair to expect a real duvet. The noise probably isn't a problem mid week. It stops at approx 1am on a Sat but if you're tired anyway, you might not notice.

I stayed here for one night on business. The company paid for the room so I can't complain about the price, although it was about £10/15 over priced in my opinion. This is a lovely spot, great interior with lots of atmosphere. The small bar and quirky furniture makes you feel warm and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable,... More

Just wanted to say what a fab location, great ambience, great staff and great food for our regular weekly meeting of the local Alton business networking organisation! Did not sample the rooms as not staying in the hotel but the rest of the location is excellent so I'm sure the rooms are as well! Steve S

I'm a member of a local group of business people who use The Market Hotel for early morning breakfast meetings. We recently relocated our meeting away from a another hotel in Alton due to poor service. This was altogether a better experience, service was great and the food was good. All leading to a very enthusiastic meeting and a great... More
