We booked the Marwell Hotel as a one-night package to visit the Zoo, and the evening meal was included as part of the package. We naturally expected a reasonably good simple meal. What we did not expect was an amazingly exquisite set of courses, beautifully presented with lovely little extra surprises served in between courses. We look for, but very... More

We tagged along this time with our baby who is only 7months old, and we're off to a great start initially. It is out 2nd visit, so... More

I have stayed at the Marwell now a number of times for work and it is a great hotel for relaxing. The rooms are all a decent size, clean and comfortable (I have stayed in all the types available) The food is great quality and breakfast has everything you could ask for. I am definitely using it as my hotel... More

Stayed with my wife and daughter for one night as a convenient and nice place to stay after a visit to the zoo. Beds were cozy, rooms were lovely and the dinner was classy. Our constructive feedback is that the menu could perhaps be a little less fancy (small portion style) and a little more in keeping with what you'd... More

We took the children to Marwell Zoo, and booked this hotel as it's within walking distance of the zoo. Very relaxing, great pool, and chill out spot for the kids. Great restaurant with a good choice of food, also enjoyed a fab breakfast that was part of the weekend package. Lovely helpful staff.

I was expecting the usual 'Business trip' experience but instead found it to be a family orientated venue absolutely packed to the rafters with children of all ages noisily enjoying themselves. Probably Marwell Zoo being just 50 metres away is a contributing factor. A hotel full of screaming sproggery is not what I would normally choose, but closed my ears... More

Booked an Executive room and found it to be a good size and functional. There wasn't any A/C but found that the locking sliding door worked well enough to give a bit of fresh air. Learnt that Dyson fans aren't noticibly better or quieter than the £39 fan we have at home. Shower good and the extra mattress in the... More

We stayed here whilst visiting Winchester for a friends wedding. We were welcomed by friendly staff and our room had a lovely forest view. Breakfast was great with lots of veggie and healthy options. The room was basic but very comfy and the shower was hot and fairly powerful. We were pleased to have a fridge in the room, a... More
