Certificate of Excellence
Drive through the gates of Lainston House, up the winding drive, you will enter a world where historic charm and contemporary elegance blend seamlessly. This charming 17th-century country house is a luxurious five star hotel, encapsulated in 63 acres of Hampshire parkland. A peaceful drawing room, sumptuous individually designed bedrooms and food created with passion (awarded 3 AA rosettes). The Cedar Bar is the place to relax for a cocktail and the outdoor terrace is even more so for sipping a glass of Champagne or a chilled glass of wine over a light lunch in Summer months. for Afternoon Tea, a day in the on-site Cookery School or a spot of Falconry, located at the back of our stunning kitchen garden. This is a classic Country House where you can put the world behind you whether it be for a creative meeting, a relaxing leisure stay or a family celebration. Minutes away from the historic city of Winchester and only a short drive from Salisbury, Stonehenge and the New Forest. Visit Jane Austin country, Highclere Castle (home of Downton Abbey), Bombay Sapphire Distillery or a local Vineyard such as Hattingley Valley. The famous River Test is close by for perfect fishing and quaint villages to explore.

Hotel in beautiful setting. Restaurant small but lacking atmosphere. Service ok nothing special but food excellent. Service charge per added to bill which makes it uncomfortable to deduct even when service was average Christmas decorations disappointing the trees need a lot more lights !

I'm not sure if it's the winding drive and stunning building or it could be perfectly groomed staff or beautiful pannelled interiors. Either way your expectations are high and I'm afraid the finished product doesn't provide depth to the veneer. The food is high on...More
