    I stayed at Sandford Springs whilst away visiting friends in Basingstoke. The hotel is set in a superb rural location with a 27 hole golf course, but is very easy to get to, set off the A339. There are lots of impressive views around the hotel and clubhouse. I am an avid golfer but did not have time to play the golf course. Will reserve that for my next visit. My son became best friends with the resident geese and swans in the ponds around the clubhouse. The hotel was less than 10 minutes drive to our friends house in Basingstoke so perfect position.

    The whole experience at the hotel was first class. Staff all very friendly and willing to please. We did not have dinner onsite but the breakfast was superb following a very peaceful and relaxing nights rest. The rooms are modern, beds very comfortable with all the conveniences you would expect of a hotel of this quality.

    I will be back and I will tackle the golf courses next time!!

    Dear Carl,

    Thank you very much for your kind review, the geese, swans and ducks have become very popular with the hotel guests and are now enjoying the warmer weather.

    We look forward to welcoming you again for a game of golf.

    Many thanks,
    Jeff

    I recently enjoyed an excellent stay at the Sandford Springs Hotel, the rooms are very well appointed with superb quality furnishings and fittings and many have views across the golf course.
    I joined a couple of colleagues who were also staying in the golf club house (which has also been refurbished to the same high standards as the hotel) for an excellent dinner.
    Breakfast the following morning in the hotel was a real treat a good selection of cold items on the buffet and the full English that came from the kitchen was freshly cooked and delicious.
    The golf course at Sandford Springs was in excellent condition the three loops of 9 holes provide an excellent test of golf combined with the excellent Hotel and Club house facilities make a great place for a golf break.

    Room Tip: Pay the upgrade and go for a Superior room

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your fantastic review, we are very happy with the way the course has been playing even with the amount of rain we have had we have not been closed or have had any greens on temporaries so can always guarantee that you'll be able to play when you stay here.

    We look forward to seeing you again.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    I am working in the area during the week for a few months and a co-worker recommended here. Glad he did. A very new hotel with large rooms and bathroom. Ask for a superior room if you want a bath. Fast free wifi. Very quiet which is great. Two very minor niggles. Room service menu could be expanded but the food is very good. I prefer a very dark room to sleep in and there is a bright green LED near the door. Not a big deal and I will be a regular.

    Dear Russ,

    Thank you for your kind words regarding the hotel.

    As the hotel restaurant is opening this evening we will be launching a new room service menu shortly, which will offer a wider choice of options.

    Unfortunately due to the fire regulations we do have to have the LED as this signifies where the fire exit is.

    We look forward to welcoming you as a regular guest.

    Many thanks,
    Jeff

    I have the pleasure of spending 2/3 nights every week here, I have tried many hotels in the Reading/Newbury/Basingstoke area and this is far far the best value for money.

    The staff are attentive, the hotel is of very high standard and the food is outstanding.

    I say best Value for money for many reasons, firstly it is suitably under my £100 a night price limit I set myself but this service and experience is worth double that! The restaurant is shocking low cost for very high quality meals and again attentive and friendly staff. There is wifi throughout both the hotel and restaurant, which is free.

    I have been staying here for a few months and I plan to continue to do so. Only suggestion would be a drinks vending machine in the hotel or a bar as part of the reception.

    Many thanks and see you tonight!

    Thank you very much for your review and the kind words regarding the hotel.

    As to your feedback on the vending machine part we are launching a new restaurant situated in the hotel which will be called The Dining Room at Sandford Springs. This will serve meals from 7PM through to 9:30PM and will be open from 10th February. We do offer extensive room service as well so you can get drinks and snacks delivered straight to your room.

    We look forward to seeing you again and hope you enjoy the additional restaurant in the Hotel.

    Booked in for NYE party with friends - never been here before. What a great hotel - brand new and everything perfect. Staff very freindly and attentive throughout the stay. Dinner was exellent - must have been a real challenge to serve so many and cater for the differing tastes of everyone. So nice to have a served full hot breakfast menu rather than the all to familiar buffet trend. Great value, highly recomended

    Room Tip: book a superior room if you want a bath - standard rooms have shower only
