“DenVer - First time and will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Had a four night stay Half Board. Could not fault it, very clean, friendly and helpful owners and pleasant staff. Had a sociable lounge and bar area for the evenings before and after dinner. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back another year. Also very reasonable tariff which also takes in the ferry.

Just spent a week at The Hambledon, 4th year running so we are novices compared to some. Can't fault it, the walking was excellent, especially the organised walks where we join another group and were led by Maggie, Jill and Bill - looking forward to next year in fact. Bill and Jackie were brilliant as always, food excellent - how I put on 3 lb with all that walking I don't know! Thoroughly recommend the hotel if you haven't been before.

Room Tip: All rooms good and comfy

This is my 13th year with Bill and Jackie at The Hambledon and it just goes to show that 13 is definitely NOT an unlucky number. I organise the weekend visit for a group of friends each year. The weekend was as much fun as ever - we get a warm welcome and superb service. The rooms are comfy and the facilities great. The walks program arranged for us was interesting and very enjoyable - Gill and Bill managed to find paths we had not walked before - lovely views and lovely weather too. I - and all my friends - cannot recommend a stay at The Hambledon strongly enough. We have already booked for next year and will continue to visit as long as we can walk!

Room Tip: No difference in any of the rooms - quiet and comfy.

Our last few days at the Hambledon have been a real pleasure. Bill and Jackie have obviously got the personal skills and attention to detail that makes a stay here very special. The food is excellent and the guided walks we took with the lovely Jill were amazing.
It says a great deal when we found out that many of the fellow walkers booked year on year.
My friend was right, it is a great venue for a holiday.
The bonus is the whole full board package, which is amazingly well priced.
Thanks Bill and Jackie for a great few days.
