We went to the friendly Hambledon on half board as being a hotel it looked better value than a guest house. The food was superb with lots of choice for breakfast. The evening meals were equally tasty and generous with different options available from menu each evening. There is also a great wine list and coffee is served in a comfortable lounge. All this with prompt and courteous service, and there you have it - tremendous value! The hotel has a friendly feel generated by the owners Bill and Jackie, all the guests chat with each over coffee or in the bar afterwards.
The rooms are spotless and you can judge the standard of this hotel on arrival with colourful hanging baskets and an immaculate garden full of flowers around the car park. There is also an amazing pond area. Care and attention to detail is evident everywhere which totally justifies this hotels top rating and previous reviews.
