Okay, so I stayed here for 3 nights on business, the staff are very friendly and the food is very good. The downside is the bedrooms, rather small for £120 per night! It would of been very "cosy" if there had been 2 of us in the room! No bottled water or fridge provided which I would expect from 4 star, toiletries are not replenished each day and the furniture is dark heavy wood which only adds to the feeling of claustrophobia. The 4 star rating however is reflected in the price of the wine - £7.45 for a 250ml glass!
I was at the back of the hotel and could hear some noise from the busy roundabout and the constant sirens of ambulances but I would not say it was detrimental to my sleep.
It's a real shame as this hotel has all the right base qualities, excellent staff, feels safe for a solo traveller, great position for Basingstoke, good leisure facilities and choice of food but the bedrooms need a total refurbishment and the price of the standard rooms for the space and facilities you are provided with needs to be reduced, my opinion is no more than £70-£80 per night.
