My wife and I booked an overnight stay at The Good Intent. We travelled by train to Petersfield. The hotel is a 7 min walk from the train station. Shopping centre is a short walk from The Good Intent . Once we arrived we were shown to our room above the pub. The rooms are quirky but not more than...

Okay, so it is not a modern, brand new, shiny building. It is a warm, cosy, olde world pub, exactly what we expected. True you could hear the traffic in the morning but it is on a main (ish) road. Also it is a music venue during the evening. Again staying in this kind of establishment you expect a certain...

I stayed here for one night (for work). Very friendly welcome and great customer service over a mix up with the rooms (my fault). The stairs to the rooms are very steep and there is limited head room in places, but it all adds to the charm of the place. The rooms were well presented and clean / comfortable -...

Love this pub. Met and shown around by the very friendly manager, then went for short walk around the lovely town before returning for fab & fairly-priced bacon, brie & cranberry paninis and salad. Enjoyed the real ale selection! In the afternoon, enjoyed the Edward Thomas walk with fab views from Mutton Hill from the pub door. What a fab...

I booked 2 nights here while working nearby in liphook. When I checked in I was greeted by a very friendly gentleman working behind the bar(the manager). He then showed me to my room, wow! A narrow staircase and low ceilings followed by a step down into my room. My room was spacious and clean the bed nice and comfy....

I have to admit that I haven't stayed at many pubs before, but if this one is typical then never again. Booked because the rating was 8.4 on Booking.com but definitely not that standard. The entrance to the bedrooms is a heath & safety nightmare. Very steep steps and you can't stand upright on the way to your room unless...

Welcoming, vibrant pub and restaurant, friendly staff and fantastic atmosphere. Great food, well kept beer and live music, comfortable room with breakfast at very reasonable prices. Our first visit to Petersfield but we will definitely be going back.

Only stayed one night but this is a charming pub. I booked it as they have lots of live music events but unfortunately not the night my wife and I stayed. Geoff the landlord is very welcoming and the food was excellent. We booked B&B but also stayed for evening meal. Only 3 letting rooms but we looked at the...
