Communication lacking
The hotel, the grounds, the people were great. What they need to work on is communication. We had booked months prior the Falconry Experience and it was confirmed. The day before (around 4pm) we were to participate we went to the front desk to see where we were to go the next day. They said come to the front desk 15 minutes before our event. We did. They told us to go to Falconry area so we walked there. We were taking pictures waiting for our falcon and guide to show up. They never came. About 10 minutes later the front desk person came and told us the event was canceled and that it had been canceled since the day before. He told us that they could not reach us the day before. We were staying at the hotel so there was no reason they could not have contacted us especially when we asked about it the day it was canceled. Also they tried to charge us for it when we checked out, but then changed her tune when we said you canceled it. If we had known the day it was canceled we could have made arrangements to go to Stonehenge. It was too late so we lost a day. Communication is needed.

Comfy beds, great nights sleep
Only small moan is the time it takes to get the cooked breakfast once ordered.

A Fantastic Destination just on its own
Lainston House is amazing! We have stayed here twice and will come back again. Everything is impeccable. The food is truly for gourmands. The little ruin of a chapel, history and grounds are well worth exploring. Our only regret was that the falconer was on vacation. Gives us an excuse to come back

Absolutely gorgeous setting.
The hotel is set in the most wonderful setting and I would love to come back and explore more. There is a cookery school and falconery too. I would have rated service and comfort higher but, for me, the bed was a bit worn on one side and not supportive or comfortable. The pillows and bedding were lovely but the zip in the middle of the duvet was annoying. Shower and jacuzzi bath lovely. Small slip up at breakfast when the coffee ordered turned into tea but otherwise very nice and service with a smile. Excellent welcome and check out with staff genuinely concerned for your enjoyment.

Lovely hotel with great staff. We were given a complimentary upgrade which was greatly appreciated but unfortunately because we were on the top floor - the heat was very uncomfortable. It would be great to install a form of cooling system.
