Quirky, pleasant hotel in a pleasant setting. Restaurant food over priced and under portioned. Bar food is far cheaper, very good and and good portion sizes. Breakfast buffet is good but the plates are cold so the food is cold by half way through. Doubtful I would return with family.

Next to the zoo. So great for families visiting the zoo. We were just looking for somewhere quiet to stay and spend a night ... it's not got the cosiest bar area .. and the restaurant is a bit 'function room' ... Great for a functional stay .. or with the family .. but if you want to stay somewhere... More

Stayed here as we were getting sized up for suits locally and wanted to visit the zoo. Our room was very dated and worn, stepping into the bathroom was going back in time and looked very used and in need of repair. Couldn't stand up under the shower as too low, vents hanging off the wall not good when your... More

Stayed here 4 times now, so I guess we like it. The hotel is right next to Marwell Zoo, so you'll find lots of families overnighting here. Also, the hotel is a popular venue for weddings and the like, so you can expect it to be full at times and pretty noisy at the bar and near the function room.... More

Dated,tired & shabby. Could be so much better with some time & imagination. No outdoor areas to sit out to speak of, despite the amount of land surrounding the hotel. The breakfast was good & staff were friendly

Arrived for an overnight stay before going to Southampton in the morning . The room was lovely and very quiet at night. We had an evening meal there which was beautiful. Breakfast was good plenty of choice, will definitely go there again

We stayed one night at this hotel to visit Marwell Zoo. Easy signposted and ample parking right outside the entrance so no problem wheeling cases for miles. The hotel is set in lovely green grounds rather like a tropical rainforest. The layout is a bit like a safari treetops lodge all wooded. Reception staff were brilliant throughout. We had a... More

Spent one night at the Marwell Hotel in the grounds of the zoological gardens.The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and has ecological leanings, evinced by the interesting architectural design - reminiscent of 'Treetops' in Kenya. Although only the two of us the family room we were given would be perfectly adequate for two adults and two very small children, much... More
