“GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013

Stayed just one night but found the hotel well situated, clean with helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of parking.
Prices at the lower end of the market but super value for money. Basic but comfortable rooms, en suite with good shower.
Breakfast excellent - buffet type - help yourself, unlimited tea and coffee.

Room Tip: Room 21 one of the more spacious

Staff are boring and lack rapport building skills. No life in the hotel. Heard staff slating management behind the desk during the evening, your guests are not deaf! Beds are dreadfully uncomfortable, have had a better night sleep in a holiday inn.

We stayed here for a family wedding on the last weekend in August. What a great venue it was, with a large reception room, opening to a lovely garden. Very friendly staff who went out of their way to cater for us all weekend, given that the hotel was full. The food for the reception was excellent & very well catered for. Rooms a little dated but clean, comfortable & quiet. Good breakfast of hot & continental choice.

this was our second stay as we were attending jalsa salana over the weekend.

we were given a large room,but it stank of vomit. windows were open,but it didnt help. we couldnt close the windows due to heat, so had to endure nineties classics from the wedding party downstairs

beds were extremely uncomfortable
the whole look was as if i had stepped into the 1980s. very tired,carpets worn and needs updating pronto.

we paid £260 for 2 nights, as needed 2 z beds extra for the kids.extortionate considering what u get.

staff are hit and miss. the breakfast guy was definitey not happy to be serving!!!

I recently stayed in this hotel for my friends wedding! it was a fantasic venue and the day ran so smoothly and everything was just perfect. We stayed in a lovely spacious double bedroom (room 6) was very clean and comfy. The staff at the hotel are all really lovely and i could fault a thing. Breakfast well let me tell you mmmmmmm fantasic great choice.

We stopped by this hotel by chance. In mid July, my wife, my two boys and I were following some cities related to Jane Austen's life and work, without no reservation at all. The first good looking hotel we found, we stopped to ask for vacant rooms. Luckly they had a family room which was very comfortable for all of us. The boys even slept in a separate room. Our bed was very comfy too. But, that's not all. It was evening and we wanted to have dinner. We were so very well treated by the guy in the restaurant and bar, which unfortunatelly I don't know the name. He was very nice with our boys and with us, even though I was the only one who spoke English. We are brazilian. All the food we had was delicious in the restaurant. But the staff being so nice with us made it even better. Next morning, the breaktast too was more than expected. Apart from the buffet, we were also offered toasts or other hot dishes that they would prepare immediately. The lady was very attentive too. Although the stay costed a bit more than I had planned, it was worth every cent. Very welcoming hotel in Alton with free parking in front. I miss those days in England, and the White Hart was one of the best moments.

This is a tired hotel in need of TLC, we had an overnight stay while travelling, glad it was only one night.

Staff were very indifferent, rooms a little shabby and carpets tired, however beds were very comfortable, breakfast buffet could be much better.
