We stayed here for a weekend as part of a deal through Avios. The hotel is clean and comfortable. It is well located and surrounded by beautiful parkland /golf course. It does however also have some typical bits that annoy me about some hotels. The wifi is charged at £15 for 24 hrs. I pay less than that for a month at home. The breakfast is double the price of the cafe down the road, where we went by the way. The leisure centre is nice but the pool not as big as it looked in the picture. Still nice. Some of those extra charges are not needed. The bigger chains use it to boost profit but makes me as a customer feel exploited when I know the next place I am staying at the wifi is free or apt least part of the room rate.
I wondered about 3 or 4 for the rating. What made me give it a 4 was the helpfulness of two members of staff. Firstly a waitress in the main restaurant who made us fee special, remembered our plans and made a point of asking how we enjoyed our day. Secondly a young man on reception who helped create a bespoke pack to explore the new forrest. Both went beyond the minimum. They will do well and Marriott would do well to support these people in the future.
