I booked this hotel because I was at a training course in Durrington. I have to say that I read some poor reviews and my husband was pulling my leg about going to stay with Basil and Sybil - JUST DON'T MENTION THE WAR! he kept saying. To say that I was a little apprehensive would be underplaying it. However, from the beautiful sloping drive (like Downton Abbey? This is for you) to the gorgeous, characterful brickwork and authentic touches of history; from the very pretty tea room, to the delicious breakfast; from the breathtaking Highdown Gardens just behind the hotel to the expansive views further along the drive; from the charming French Bergere bedroom furniture, to the kind and friendly staff, I just couldn't fault it. The only thing that caused me any trouble was the lack of Wifi on my last night which stopped me sending a work e mail - the staff couldn't have tried harder to help, and as it was I just popped back down the drive and up the road to Asda and used their free Wifi, so it wasn't the end of the world. The public areas were beautifully decorated and had large old fashioned desks that one could work at. The room itself was clean and well serviced as was the bathroom (only criticism is that the bathroom décor was stuck in the 1990s but it was extremely clean) A fellow delegate was paying almost twice as much at the Premier Inn up the road - I was astounded. The receptionist even moved me to a room at the back as I was concerned that the one by the door would be noisy - the room was so quiet I could have heard a pin drop. Absolutely tip-top and I would definitely book again, and have recommended it to others. If you are alone I would recommend Room 10 - a twin with a chair, table, stool and desk. Perfect for working or leisure it is very convenient for local towns.
