“Don't have the bone in steak, not good value for money”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Hi stayed one night, staff were charming we booked an evening meal which simply did not meet our expectations or represent good value for money.

We have been offered some vouchers as compensation, draw your own conclusion.

Yet another fab stay here. The No.1 choice, the only choice in the area. Character, an excellent welcome from Suzie, fabulous food. (I already forgive you for not having treacle tart on the menu because I was told next time just let us know you are coming and we will make one for you, Great customer service!)

The bedrooms in the main building have been refurbished. What a lovely job. We had a large room, antique furniture, and a gorgeous bathroom.

The breakfast is still as good as ever. Cooked to order with excellent quality ingredients. The best breakfast we have had anywhere, really.

We wouldn't go anywhere else as we love the ambience, service and food. The refurb has put the icing on the cake.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.

The hotel is ideally located for easy access into the main Basingstoke business parks, being just on the A33.

My bedroom was very comfortable, though showing signs of wear and tear (nothing major). We dined in the restaurant which was busy even on a Monday night, the food was very good. The bar staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Well worth considering if you're in the area.

Overall a good venue I think.

The Sunday lunch was of a good quality, even if the beef was a little too pink in places for me. The veg was reasonable and the potatoes also reasonable.

I have had better but pretty good!

We went at half 1 and it wasn't very busy at all, maybe too warm a day for people to want to go for a roast?

Service was pleasant and our meal came out within 10 minutes.

Only thing lacking was staff didn't come back to see if we wanted more drinks or anything after meal was finished apart from when they took our plates.

The setting was very nice and the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere.

Sunday lunch was £12.50 which is pricier than a lot of places but it's somewhere you go if you want something a bit more special.

Overall a very pleasant lunch was had.

Booked this as a one night stop as was seeing a show in Oxford and partner works in Basingstoke. Was totally amazed at the room (14), it was fabulous. Huge 4 poster bed and very nice bathroom. Bar staff were nice. Breakfast was a little slow and food not overly hot. Overall for the price this was a great hotel and my partner and I would have no hesitation in staying again.

Chosen as a halfway meet for dinner with a friend, booked on line, but they were not expecting us! and the restaurant was full, they did manage to squeeze us in, but it was not a great start to the evening. Beware of bookings made via Toptable, they seem to take a lower priority, that those phoned through.

We had a pleasant evening although there were several parties in that night so it was not very quiet and difficult to hear each other at some points. The staff were very efficient and polite, but I feel the food quality was average, my veal was rather tougher than it should have been and at £16 a little over priced. I would probably give them another try at some point, not a bad experience but not memorable either!

Spent a few hours over multiple coffees and then lunch here with a work colleague. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, though not all brilliant english speakers (we got tea instead of coffee on first time of asking), but their smiles made up for it. Very nice beetroot and goats cheese open sandwich with avocado and curried chicken also tasty. Lovely smell of candles and burning wood in the large bar on a miserable Feb day increased the ambiance. Only quibble is wifi is highly intermittent, at least downstairs. All in all a very pleasant surprise.
