5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

I've stayed here before and would return again. Excellent service and facilities. I took my children who are 3 and 6 and they loved it. So that's a good review in itself! Plenty to do un the area. Easy parking and good range of food and drink.

After a day at peppa pig world with our 3 year old bouncing off the walls we arrived at Marwell to be greeted with a very welcoming smile and greeting from the very professional receptionist.

Unfortunately our 1 year old was unwell and the helpful receptionist once again provided relevant and informative information for any local doctors.

On arriving in our room it felt a little dark and cramped and on speaking with the receptionist again (i should have asked her name so i could name check her) she very kindly offered us a different room which was so much nicer.

The pool is a great area, not the shallowest but safe for children with armbands on.

Room service was served with professionalism and overall we couldn’t have been more welcomed than we were and cared for throughout our stay. Well done marwell hotel, we will return as our 3 year old has been asking on a daily basis for another visit to peppa pig world.

Well done to all staff

Dear Patrick S,

Many thanks for your kind feedback, we are sorry to hear your child was not very well on your visit but hope they are back to good health now.

It is pleasing to know our staff were all very welcoming and helpful during your stay, and our receptionist was able to assist in a professional manner. They are real assets to the company and we are pride to have a strong team.

We are pleased to hear that our receptionist was efficient in arranging a bedroom that you were happy with. It is important to us that all our guests have an enjoyable stay so we appreciate it that you communicated to us that you weren't entirely satisfied with your initial room - this enabled us to rectify the situation swiftly for you.

We are so pleased that your 3 year old enjoyed themselves at our hotel and we would love to welcome you and your family back to Marwell Hotel in the near future.

Thank you again.

With kindest regards

We went for my sisters 50th birthday treat. We stayed on a Sunday night and were booked for the dining experience. my sister needed a disability room which was more than spacious. Bed was comfy and staff were lovely. The food was more than delicious - see review under restaurants. The only comment to make is that there were 4 of us and some of the double doors to the corridors to the rooms were push or pull and the door closers needed to be slowed to allow an independent wheelchair user to be able to pass through. Also the room had a shower in the bath which my sister was not able to step into. But all in all a great time was had by all - we had been before and would go again

I arrived late one evening to be greeted by 2 very pleasant people with excellent manners. Perhaps this is why young Continetal Europeans are "taking our jobs" ? I had never stayed here before and was made feel very welcome. The Rooms are in little self-contained groups, with Corridors seemingly cutting through the floor of the woods. The corridors were chilly as they were really walkways but the room was nice and warm and huge. I unfortunately neglected to check the facilities beforehand as there looked to be a nice swimming pool, not bad for a 3 Star hotel! The restaurant opened at 7.00am , staff were very efficient but friendly. The menu is a little confusing in that the English or Continental Breakfast costs £ 7.50 but it is not possible to decline the set breakfast and having say the smoked salmon without paying extra. the Full English was excellent and one could have their fill of cereal, orange juice etc. My only gripe was that I had to rush my breakfast as I had an early appointment 6 miles away. so perhaps if the restaurant could open at 6.45am , there were a few of us waiting to get in at 7.00am

Dear NPTraveller241158,

Thank you for your feedback, we find it very useful to improve our standards delivered and ensure all our guests have an enjoyable stay with us.

It is pleasing to know all the staff you encountered on your stay were polite and professional.

We do indeed have an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, spa pool and running machines. This is a lovely space to relax in after a day's work. It is a shame you were unable to use our facilities on this occasion but we hope you can have the opportunity on your next visit.

We are glad you enjoyed breakfast; and thank you for your comments, they are valued to our early risers and we will see if this is a possible option of opening slightly earlier to allow all our guests to enjoy breakfast at their leisure.

Many thanks again, and we hope to welcome you back to Marwell Hotel in the near future.

With kindest regards

Friendly, helpful staff especially in the Restaurant both at Dinner and Breakfast.
Food was to a high standard and the room was clean.
Can't ask for more on a one night business trip.
The only real "complaint" was an uncalled for early morning alarm call from a peacock in the Zoo

It is a pleasure to offer a high standard of food to you and all our guests; it is a passion of ours to deliver local produce to a high quality.

My daughter and I took our grandchildren, aged 8 and 4, for a super day out at Marwell Zoo and decided to make it extra special by booking a night for us all at the Marwell Hotel. A short walk across the road from the Zoo brought us to the unusually designed hotel. From the start to the finish of our stay I cannot praise highly enough the pleasant, efficient and genuine staff we encountered. Our room (king double and bunk beds) was looking tired and in need of a re-furbish but was clean and the bedlinen spotless and crisp, as were the towels. The bathroom was in need of modernisation but the water was hot and the toiletries supplied generous. We ordered room service for our tired children which arrived promptly. We all enjoyed the spotless little pool for a swim before the excellent breakfast in dining room. We felt it was a great way to round off a long day at the brilliant Marwell Zoo. We will definitely do it again.

Dear Friendswelcome,

We are delighted to hear that your recent stay with us was so positive; it is great to know you had a superb visit with your family!

We are extremely lucky to have the zoo so close on our door step and it is fantastic you were able to benefit from this highlight with your grandchildren.

Our staff are true assets to the company and it is great to know they were delivering the high standard of customer service we set out to offer.

We would like to reassure you that we are in the stages of renovating all our bedrooms as they are at the point of needing refreshing. We have completed 10 executive rooms to a fantastic finish and we hope to complete the rest in due course. But we are glad that you found the room clean and comfortable.

We are glad that you enjoyed our leisure facilities, we find they are a great relaxer after a busy day at the zoo or a pleasant way to wake up, and we are pleased you were able to take pleasure in these.

Many thanks again for your kind words, and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Marwell Hotel very soon.

With kindest regards
