Attended a lunch here sometime back and was disappointed particularly with their overall hygiene. To return was a gamble but nothing had improved. Sorry but today was probably the worse meal I have had in a long time and judging from group conversations I suspect I was not alone. But at two course for £8.50 should I really complain however...

More like a guest house than hotel. An old mansion house with a good history, famous names ..... Queen Victoria, Maggie Thatcher and more. Needs updating and decor review, very tired... Breakfast very good and cooked fresh as ordered. Owner very nice, knowledgeable. This hotel is tucked away and needs more publicity, perhaps then it will be brought up to... More

I recently visited some friends in Gosport. When I arrived at the Hotel I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the exterior looked - it went downhill quickly the second I walked through the front door. Clearly the housekeeping staff have ignored the entrance as upon looking up the ceiling was covered in bugs and cobwebs - not to mention... More

We stayed for one night, midweek. Its an interesting place in a strange sort of way as its like something out of a movie. I was expecting to see Morticia and Lurch appear at any time . .. Its a run down relic from the past . A crying shame because its in a lovely location and with a half... More

Stayed in the cottage, filthy damp and not fit for paying guests. Bathroom not fit for use, filthy. Now shower and general condition of rooms well below an acceptable standard. Hotel itself in very poor condition. Breakfast standard poor, dirty cups and food reheated...... Never again!

This hotel was a brilliant venue for my big day. The views were lovely, the breakfast I had the night before was brilliant, and everyone was very nice. This would have received a 5/5 if little things hadn't gone wrong, the shower was difficult to operate and quite weak (from the night before the wedding), the TV worked but the... More

Had a lovely vegetarian lasagne for lunch. Was very quiet when we visited. Premises still a tad on the tired side. The young man behind the bar who also waited was brilliant and a credit to the hotel.I hope he gets the recognition he deserves.
