“Wedding Reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We had our wedding reception at the Market Hotel and we could not have asked for more. The venue was decorated to a high standard and the staff were brilliant. The food was exceptional and cooked to a high standard. We chose the Market Hotel because it is so beautifully decorated, and as we had a smallish wedding (35 sit down) it felt cosy and intimate. We had a DJ in the evening and about 40 more guests and everyone said it felt like a real family affair. We booked all the rooms for our guests which were again beautifully decorated and met up for a family breakfast (with some extra family members joining us) and which none of us could fault. Well done to Tara and Jamie for making our day so special and for pulling our all the stops. We could not have asked for more and would certainly go to the Market Hotel if we wanted to book another family function.

The Market Hotel, is a pleasurable visit, a refreshing family run Hotel/Pub, where you will receive great hospitality. The Shabby chic décor is a real change to Alton's traditional style pubs. next time you are in the Market Square, I can recommend you should try it out yourself. The Market is convenient to the local train station, only 10 min's walk away and is surrounded by local restaurants and shops.

nicely decorated rooms with very nice thick duvets & comfortable beds. shops all around & plenty of places to eat so good location. 10 mins walk from the train station. however there are many pubs around & it can get very noisy late at night & this hotel is actually 3 rooms above a pub. would stay again

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We only stopped for one night, but really enjoyed it. The room was very light, airy, clean, comfy and had everything we needed. The breakfast we had was delicious and set us up for the day.

As the rooms are in a pub, there is some noise from the surrounding market place area at night, but this is only people talking and enjoying themselves and it did not affect us at all.

The Market Hotel pub is also a nice pub to drink in, and although we didn't eat there, the menu looked very good.

Would recommend this as a place to stay.
