“Good for overnight stays”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Used the Beach Arms as a stopover on our way to Southampton. We had to register via the bar as reception isn't manned all the time. Room was large and appeared clean, although overall the place was a bit tired looking. Food was limited to a carvery, starters and mains - but was incredibly cheap. Dining room was very busy so plumped for just having a starter in the bar area. Continental breakfast provided was fine, but you could have a cooked one for an extra supplement.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel for more than a day or so, but for the price we paid (special summer offer of £25), then nobody could complain.

Beach Arms is Inn with a Crown Cauvery in the village of Oakley has a small number for rooms about 20 we arrived late at night so not many staff around, as it was a weekday in March it was. It was in a nice small village which is properly why on dark nights and on the edge of the village was lacking in customers. That being said staff where friendly and efficient, the breakfast was of a good standard. We had the free continental breakfast that comes with the Inn Keepers stay which was just what we wanted. However for a small supplement there was a full cooked breakfast available and a number of the locals came in during our stay just for the cooked breakfast, so it must have been good value locally to attract them. The room was clean and may have been recently decorated it had everything we wanted and for £29 for two for the night was great value. We hope to go back sometime and in the future and explore the area and stay here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Secreted away in the quiet village of Oakley, this handsome Hampshire lodge provides some of the most welcoming budget accommodation in Basingstoke.It's just off the M3, and a few minutes from town - but feels like it's a world away, with picturesque countryside on the doorstep and attractive thatched houses nestling around a duck pond in the centre of the village.There's a wealth of conference venues nearby, such as Oakley Hall and the Ark Centre, which makes the 22-bedroom lodge a comfy and convenient base for business as well as pleasure. Either way, you can round off your stay with a tasty roast dinner and a tipple or two at the Crown Carvery next door.As for things to see and do in the local area, you'll be spoilt for choice. If you love country walks head down to award-winning Eastrop Park, which is full of scenic trails. Or you could explore the remains of Basing House, once the largest private residence in England. Plus you might like to catch a show at The Anvil Concert Hall or simply take a relaxing stroll down Basingstoke Canal. ... more   less
