We stayed here as we were attending a large wedding nearby and most of the hotel was occupied by the bridal party.
The room we had was a long way from reception... A little like a mystery tour.... And it was large... Beautiful bathroom... Four poster bed... Beautiful....
Downside.. No internet...hot ...
Afternoon tea was lovely.... Albeit a little slow but they were extremely busy...
Breakfast a little quiet.... But food only ok... A little stingy on helpings on cooked English!,
Overall lovely hotel where the young staff who are helpful and cheerful make the hotel.
Don't expect flash, expect good decent staff and a homely feel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Don't forget to book 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. ... more less
