A very nice hotel, good room, good food, friendly staff but let down slightly by attention to detail and some tired decor.
On arrival on Sunday our room had a good variety of teas, coffees, hot chocolate etc. but no milk. We asked reception for some and, after going back after half an hour to enquire again, were given a jug of fresh milk. On Monday, evening this jug of milk was still in our room. Tuesday it was still there, jellified, and our room had been only partly serviced so there were no towels. Complained again to reception and got another jug of milk (and towels). Wednesday morning we saw the duty manager and he said the housekeeping had run out of milk pots but no-one had told management! He was very apologetic and pointed to large boxes of milk pots which had just been delivered.
The breakfast buffet was very good, as was the evening dining (although I don't know how often the menu is changed and the salmon portion was small).
There is a good health club in the extensive and very pleasant grounds.
Access to the hotel and parking on Wednesday evening was a bit slow, delayed by a school prom event with kids arriving in outlandish vehicles.
We enjoyed our stay and with some attention to detail, a bit of redecoration and a little more training for the junior staff, this could be a truly excellent hotel.
It is convenient for Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester (which has a good park & ride).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- BEST WESTERN Chilworth Manor Hotel lies just 4 miles from Southampton, amongst 12 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. Right next door to a conservation area, this wonderful retreat is worlds away, but not far away, from the city centre. An Edwardian Manor house, the hotel is an ideal place to get away from it all and is particularly peaceful for romantic breaks! Though close to Southampton city centre and port, and the transport links that take you there, we think you'll find more than enough to keep you occupied here at the hotel. Why not work out in our state-of-the-art leisure facilities, or treat yourself to some quality time in our spa?****FREE WIFI ***** FREE CAR PARKING ***** FREE USE OF HEALTH CLUB***** ... more less
