Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, England

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2011

We chose the Four Seasons Hampshire as a 5 day layover from Asia to England, en route down to South England to visit family over Christmas. This happened during the big freeze of Winter 2010, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to take our respite from the long journey. Blessed with sprawling and beautiful grounds, the Four Seasons Hampshire emanates a calm that permeates the entire hotel. Everything was unflustered, well-managed, charming really. Of course the white winter we enjoyed and snowmen we got to build (the restaurant gamely provided carrots in a box for Frosty's nose to my 5 year old), wellingtons and winter jackets for loan, lovely fireplaces, and general festive feel all around augmented our contentedness, but really it was also the impeccably trained staff- from the housekeeping, to the front desk, to each restaurant, the library area and the doormen- that contributed to our comfort. They were attentive without being intrusive (a very difficult line for a lot of hospitality staff to master, it seems), and always had an air of professionalism and efficiency about them.

Service was amazing. Our daughter was offered upon check-in a free pick of a Christmas present from a box of toys, which delighted her. Upon arriving in Devon a few days later, we realized she had left it behind, much to her dismay. We called the hotel thinking we would drop by again to pick it up at a later date, but instead, they mailed the toy to our home in Asia for us!

Our room was spacious and warm, and the hotel itself had a kind of classic beauty that inspired a lot of photography over our few days there. The attention to detail was unmistakable - from the fresh flowers in the corridors, to the beautiful Christmas trees and tasteful decorations throughout. The games room was, albeit small, well used by us, as it was equipped with an xbox and ping pong table that we found very entertaining. The spa and indoor pool were luxurious.

We would love to visit again at a different time of the year to experience this charm in a different setting. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family as well.

We were stuck in London at the weekend due to a flight cancellation.
Not wanting to head into town due to a big demonstration and the anarchists,we hired a car and drove out to the four seasons Hampshire.

What a pleasant surprise.
Whilst the grounds resemble a farm,I see nothing wrong with that.
We did think we were driving up to a mental institution along that drive but thats where the jokes ended and a wonderfull stay started.
The hotel was full to the gills with , yes loads of families and kids but also an ecclectic mix of people young and old.
People watching urges were satisfied.

The room was beautifull and big with a big bathroom(One of the garden mews rooms)
Service throughout was perfect.
Food was delicious.
The bar area was actually quite modernly decorated and packed but we had seats by the fire.
It was warm enough on saturday to sit outside,viewing the cattle in yonder fields and the people practicing their shooting...I don't think they hit any of the cattle!
Oh and they have Peronni on tap...what more could an earthman want

The spa was wonderfull,the pool wonderfull ,as was the outdoor jacuzzi.

Breakfast was a treat,plenty available and my own personal like,an omlette station.
Ten out of ten.
We loved it!

We spent three wonderful days at the Four Seasons Hampshire and can not think of a single fault. The hotel staff were not just extremely friendly and helpful but also well organised. We came with our baby and the reception staff instantly recognised who we were and allowed us to check in early. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large and elegant with top range shampoos and body lotions. One of the main attractions for us was the spa, and this certainly did not disappoint. The changing rooms were extremely pleasant and clean, with the added bonus of hosting a steam room, sauna and relaxation room – all of which were large and nicely presented. The pool was much bigger then we expected and it made for good exercise.

Due to special dietary requirements we had to bring our own food which the hotel was happy to store and heat up at dinner time. We were pleasantly surprised when the meal was brought up on a table that opened up with cutlery etc.

As well as being a beautiful hotel, the management have succeeded in getting the small things right. Can not wait to visit again!

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night as a Spa break package, with my husband. From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt looked after and pampered. The staff were extremely polite, helpful and welcoming. Our car was parked for us on arrival and our bags taken up to our room. Checking in was simple and quick. A very pleasant young lady showed us the way to our room and gave us brief directions to the spa and restaurant etc. Four Seasons is an American chain - this must explain the excellent service. The English are just not capable of it.
The room was a Garden Room (not a suite, just a double room with king size bed) and overlooked the grounds. It was very comfortable and spacious, stylish and clean. The bathroom was fantastic with large bath and separate shower. When we had booked the room initially we had mentioned it was my husband's birthday and there was a lovely chocolate dessert (a sort of mousse/cake) left for him with Happy Birthday message written in chocolate! Luckily we are both chocoholics and it went down a treat! These small extras can really make a difference and make the trip more memorable.
The spa experience was very relaxing and again we were attended by very pleasant and helpful staff. After our treatments, we ate a delicious late lunch in the cafe next to the spa.
For dinner we had booked the fine dining restaurant (Seasons). Before we went in we had champagne cocktails in the bar which was next to the Bistro restaurant which was extremely busy - note there were a large number of children around in the evening, and it wasn't half term. I was prepared for this as I had read reviews which had warned about it but it didn't affect us at all as they all seemed well behaved and all were in the Bistro restaurant.
The only criticism I can come up with is of the food in Seasons. It was extremely expensive and I personally don't feel it was worth it. It was not the best fine dining experience I have had and my husband agreed. The amount of money you pay for such a small amount of food, and for me as a vegetarian, for a plate with a few vegetables dotted around, is pretty outrageous. However we did have an idea this would be the case and have decided in future to avoid this type of restaurant and stick to the bistro/brasserie types which tend to have more hearty food. All in all, would definitely go back and am trying to convince a friend to go next year for her birthday - the men can do clay pigeon shooting whilst the girls use the spa/have afternoon tea/quaff champers in our rooms. One to save up for though!

I loved this hotel!!!!!! Everything from the little bran muffins and tea served in the morning in the spa to the service was impeccable. I have visited this hotel twice and it has been wonderful both times. Since it was snowing it was wonderfully romantic!
The boutique sells magazines and beautiful gifts.
The food is delicious although I do recommend booking a table especially for Sunday lunch buffet since it can often get rather full!
The swimming pool with the swim through vitality pool is divine and so warm!
The attention to detail in this hotel is amazing! The interior of the hotel is wonderful and the Christmas decorations were gorgeous. I especially had my eye on the big purple feathers filly the streamlined black vases in the bar! Very nice!
The room was large and spacious! The toiletries smelt divine and the whole bathroom sparkled with cleanliness! The bath was large and the towels fluffy. There is an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe and the big window lets in lots of light but the room still feels cosy.
The hotel is not very near much so if site seeing is your thing then this is not the hotel for you. This is a hotel to relax in and take a break in the country side - if you go down the hill there are several horses to cuddle and I think horse riding lessons are available.
The staff are friendly and helpful and even though a poor waiter had to come up to our room three times to deliver our dinner (first time our food, second time some water and third time dessert since we forgot o order them!!!) he still seemed to managed remain as happy and nice as ever and did not even look one tiny bit irritated!
I would really recommend this hotel. It is really top quality.

We are faithful Four Seasons guests. We tend to choose a vacation place upon the availability of a FS hotel there. We booked a mini break at FS Hampshire on Boxing Day 2010. We drove from Paris, and the property is easy to find, eventhough the GPS in our car pinpoint it.

The building sits magnificently up a winding road. It is certainly very regal looking. We were helped by bellman, despite being slightly put off by the valet asking us to move the car immediately. Reception is in a beautiful oak panelled room, replete with cracking fire. A comforting welcome. Check-in was swift, and we were shown to our Heritage room, just what we had booked, overlooking some hills and a pond. Beautiful furniture, typical Four Seasons bathroom, with scarce supply of L'Occitane toiletries. They bring more upon request, but I feel that for the rates, one should not be begging for more shower gel ... The historic feel is certainly there : time to get rid of the lousy bulky TV set that no Best Western would dare carry, guys ! Heard of flat screens, anyone ?

Careless me : I had not booked a restaurant on our first night. They had set up an emergency venue in one of the galleries, called "The Steakhouse", with limited a la carte selections, which was absolutely fine. It was probably the only quiet meal we had there, with fine food. Do not expect Mastro's (Los Angeles) quality, eventhough the pricing is expectedly on par.

Breakfast is lavish, pure Four Seasons, with excellent selection and an egg station. More attention should be paid to the warm dishes ; some sit under the heating lamps for too long, and noone likes an hard-boiled Egg Benedict, or a stiff pancake.
Real trouble was a kid invasion. Truth be told, this is more related to the lack of attention from the parents, who feel perfectly happy when their beloved kids annoy everyone else but them. I had clearly underestimated the youth attendance, but honestly being circled by running-screaming kids, surrounded by tables where the parents have supplied stupid games making music or animal noises is not my idea of breakfast. Why not make an adult only section ? Would please everyone. At one point it became so uncomfortable that I called the supervisor, which could do nothing, obviously, but wave the charge. Not a compensation in my view. I could afford for breakfast ; just make it a quiet one.

We decided that breakfast would be the only meal we would have there, and we were perfectly happy visting the gastropubs (Forester's, The Exchequer) a short drive away.

We would like to point out the gracious staff every where, the outstanding housekeeping, the knowledgeable concierges, the immaculate grounds (even at the peak of winter). A pure Four Seasons facility in all regards.

Would we return ? Absolutely. We would be more careful as to the moment ...

My husband and i stayed at the hotel for three nights in Feb 2011 to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We took the buy two nights get one night free offer and it was well worth every penny.
As the hotel knew it was our anniversary they upgraded our room for free, which was an unexpected treat.
The rooms are classic in stayle but very comfortable and decent size. We stayed in a garden king which had a good view of the gardens. We were also treated to a happy anniversary cake and a card from the management.
The bars and restaraunts in the hotel were great quality. The sunday farmers market lunch should be booked as it was very good value in such an exensive hotel and the food was delicious. The spa was high quality and like an oasis of calm.
The gym was also very good.
We travelled to winchester late saturday afternoon which is about half an hours drive. We had dinner there and then drove back to the hotel.
The service from the hotel is fantastic and they really do make you feel cared for. The only slight draw backs are the extra expenses you will incur. There aren't tea nad coffee making facilities in the room which meant we had to order it in each morning and there isn;t anything remotely cheap about the place. Havign said that if you prepare for this you wouldn't be disappointed. The hotel is high class and we think it was great value even if it was expensive for the extras.
The only odd thing we found was the old schook TV's in the rooms. They are slightly out of place and you wonder why they haven't investetd in Plasma TV's yet considering they have SKy TV and DVD's. Also no free wireless internet in your room, only in the bar. It was £15 a day whcih seemed like an unncessary cost. It is almost like they like you to enjoy the hotel rather than saty in your room.
Overall an excellent choice of hotel.
