Visited as a treat for a girl's pamper afternoon via a Groupon voucher , location on the waters edge was stunning but inside the hotel seemed dated with large print swirly patterned carpets, but other wise fine, made our way to the pool side for our Spa Access before the Cream Tea well with only one changing cubical I ended up nipping in to the disabled toilet to change in to my swim suit, not the pamper feel I had in mind when I booked, two hair dryers one was out of order, at pool side only three wooden sun loungers all ready taken so no where to sit or relax and the jacuzzi was out of order with a sign saying date to be repaired " unknown"!! Oh and the pool was occupied with a local group of mothers and babies having some kind of baby play session so we waited for that to end, didn't use the sauna due to the hot weather that day, would have been really nice to go out side and sit on loungers to enjoy the weather but there was no access pool side. Pool side grout was dirty you could scrape your finger on the tiles to leave your mark - I was disappointed and would Not book again. The cream tea was lovely with tasty sandwiches and scrummy cakes and large pot of tea we paid extra and had a glass of wine, view was stunning looking out on to the harbour through the dirty windows. Revamp the pool and all would have been fine .

Stayed at the Langstone Hotel as a last minute break. The room was at the end of a long corridor which meant it was very quiet. The view from the window was of a car park so not the best outlook but only one night so ok I suppose. Bed comfortable and room fairly large with a seating area, mini fridge, safe, iron and tea/coffee making facilities.
Bathroom was fairly standard with a walk in shower which when booked was advertised as multijet, but in reality was just a standard shower (so that was a little disappointing)
There was a wedding at the hotel and this meant that having a drink in the bar area was a little uncomfortable due to the amount of wedding guests, so we walked over the bridge to the Royal Oak where we had a few drinks and a nice meal.
Check out was a little abrupt and unhelpful but would stay again for a short break only.

My wife and I stayed here, we upgraded our room and booked a late check that meant we check out at 6pm the following day, we would recommend doing this as the room and the health suite were fantastic. We had afternoon tea over looking the marina in the hotel and for £28 this was excellent value. All the staff were friendly and could not do enough for you. Stayed here a few times now on a Groupon deal and we will again be returning, this is the best hotel in the area by a long way.

Room Tip: The basic rooms are lovely if you upgrade you get a fridge, dressing gowns and a large room and for...

Came here for one night. Impressed by the modern, open feeling of the hotel. Well maintained. Beautiful large twin room with great beds. The food in the restaurant was a let down as were the extortionate prices for drinks. However, had a pleasant stay.

Stayed here for one night, and after we booked we then checked trip advisor and was shocked at the bad reviews so was not sure what we would find on arrival. Reception staff were welcoming on check in, but lacked basic information, ie, should be standard information for guests as to where and what times breakfast was served, this we had to ask. On entering our room was pleasantly surprised at the room, but exceptionally cold, which didnt improve through out the night even though thermostat in the room was turned up to full, lovely coordinating decor, although paint on the deep red curtains even though the room was wall papered ! There was massive mirrors in the room, all highly polished with no smudges, but then let down with massive cobwebs in both bedside lamps. On entering the bathroom, which looked very clean, again let down massively by a big poo in the toilet, suggesting this was not cleaned or the chambermaid had a poo whilst cleaning the room and forgot to flush! The complimentary tea tray was also a big let down, 4 tea bags , 6 coffee satchels no brown sugar and 6 milks. Would not have hurt to have had some horlicks or hot chocolate and some biscuits, this is the first hotel I have stayed in and not had biscuits on the tea tray .The bar drinks were a tad on the dear side as was the restaurant food. Breakfast was good, plenty of everything, although staff lacking attention to guests empty plates and clearing them, as when on a table for 2 becomes cramped.

Stayed one night with a Groupon voucher which meant excellent value for money on the room. Bedroom was very spacious and well appointed although one reading light didn't work. bed was rather too soft for my wife who has a bad back. Bathroom was a bit 'tired' and leaked water on the floor from the overflow. Staff were very diligent, sympathetic and pleasant and said they would get the problems sorted.

Decided to eat in the restaurant for dinner and found it very expensive and soemwhat pretentious. Would not use it again. Cheaper options do exist if you eat int he bar. Breakfast was good.

Location is excellent for Hayling and the surrounding area.

Stayed in what looked like a new room possibly in a new wing of the hotel too. had stayed here before about a year ago as find the price good value for money when it comes to the bedroom and use of the indoor swimming pool. Breakfast is pretty good but can get busy around 9am. Problem with the lunch or dinner if eating in the bar area, service lacking and the meals are horrendous. Did not eat lunch or dinner though in the main restaurant so cant judge on that, but do yourself a favor and order maybe a takeaway than eat at the bar. Offered a wifi and movies package for 10 pounds which is good value.
