We stayed at the Alton House Hotel for two nights to attend a friends wedding that was being held there. First impressions were good with very friendly and welcoming staff. As time went on their were lots of little things that point to the lack of attention to detail. The beds also need to have better mattresses as they provide... More

Booked a table here after a personal recommendation for a Sunday lunch . They offer a set menu - 2 courses £13.95 and 3 courses for £16.95. The menu choice was good , we had home made leek and potato soup and an asparagus , hollandaise sauce and poached egg starter and a roast beef and pork main. The staff... More

The Alton House Hotel is an older style hotel. My husband and I had the Cavenish Suite which was lovely. the bathroom was large with plenty of clean towels. Other members of my family had 2 twin rooms, which I found adequate but not luxurious. The hotel staff were friendly and very knowledgeable of the area as we were attending... More

Me and my family stayed here this August after travelling down for a family wedding and it suited our needs perfectly. Rooms were clean and tidy but rather outdated and the windows looked a bit fragile. Beds were soft and comfortable which is the most important thing! Staff were friendly and helpful and always looked happy which is a rarity... More

I booked this hotel as we were attending a wedding close by. I was not expecting anything but we really enjoyed our stay. We booked 2 rooms and both were very clean. The double room was bigger with a balcony. The high street was nothing special and we couldn't find a nice place for tea and cakes. We mentioned this... More

Dirty chairs, basic rooms, locks on window broken, no hair dryer, charged different prices for the same round of drinks at the bottom bar probably because they had no till just a calculator, staff packing away chairs at 11.30pm when Hall is hired till 12am they seemed pretty miffed when asked to wait as party was still going, very rude...

Arrived at the Alton hotel a 200 hundred year old property to be surprised that it looked smaller than in its brochure as it seems to be set back in its own grounds some distance from the road, but this is not the case as it is straight off the main road. Plenty of parking space at the front and... More

OK, so the hotel is showing its age and needs a capital infusion to bring it up-market. But that does not warrant the negative reviews I've read recently. First and foremost, the staff are excellent and will go out of their way to accommodate special requests (extra pillows, ironing board, additional WIFI passwords etc). Room 44 was spacious, refurbished and... More
