In restaurant told, I can't deal take your order, even though we're staying in Hotel. I only have one chef & a table of 7 is before you. You'll have to wait! What they haven't all arrived yet! Dreadful attitude & poor customer relations! Gone...More

We were here for a social occasion lunch. Service was OK but food average. Whole building looks tired. Warning - their car park is pay and display and there was no concession offered to us as customers. Those with no pressing need to visit Havant...More

Stayed here for a night as had a wedding reception to go to. We didn’t have dinner here as we had the reception to go to but the menu looked nice. The design of the hotel is old fashioned with a bit of modern which...More

We arrived with our three children and were given two rooms at opposite ends of the hotel. Not ideal. We were offered a room a bit nearer but it didn't have a shower, only a bath so we stuck with what we had. The family...More

Charming hotel and pub full of character and history. Short walk to shops and the train station made it very convenient. Spacious room with a super comfy bed. The room also had a floor fan, which made me very happy. The staff are delightful and...More

As a first time user of Old English Inns this represented a bad choice. The Bear is very poor in many respects, the reception staff and bar staff were disinterested, the cosy pub as represented in the pictures was nothing more than a small alcove,...More

You could easily walk by this place and miss its quirky charm. Part seriously old coaching inn (check out the beamed lounge bar with cellar doorway from 1700's) and part more modern (additions to the accommodation for the hotel). Its not been modernised recently but...More

I'm not going to say it's in the best condition but it is clean. The carpets are a little worn, the furniture is dated etc. The bathroom in the room we had was in dire need of a refurb but I could not fault the actual... More

Only had the breakfast during my stay and that was a very good, traditional english breakfast. I am sure their Sunday roast would be just as good.
