Good atmosphere and friendly service
We enjoyed an very good overnight stay in this pretty village. The staff were very friendly, the food excellent and the room very comfortable. Very close for Winchester. Thank you.

Good 6.0
Shame about the exit!
The room was lovely! Dinner menu was a little limited. A problem arose when I was checking out and the member of staff, who appeared very inexperienced, denied that I could have prepaid for my room with Tesco vouchers, despite my having email confirmation, because ‘the hotel didn’t do that’. Was insistent that I pay in full with my credit card, which I refused to do, and the manager, who I had asked to see, refused to come out of their office to the reception desk’. The tax was paid twice, once in advance and again when I left, although this has now been refunded after a phone call.

What a lovely place. Friendly staff, well decorated & comfortable rooms. Restaurant has a lively ambience, great Sauvignon Blanc and a well cooked meal. Couldn’t ask for much else!

Very Good 8.0
One night on business
Nice room, decent sized bathroom. Well decorated, clean and well equipped, tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits, even a pod coffee machine. slight let downs were no chair, despite a desk, which was a shame as I was working and had to sit on the bed to write a report for work, wifi didn't work, so I had to tether to my phone and the bed wasn't actually attached to the headboard so if you sat against it the bed moved away from the headboard. I don't want these comments to overshadow what is a very nice comfortable place, the overall standard is very high and it's a nice place to be with excellent food and drink. I'd certainly stay here again.
