In a large hotel it is uncommon to find the same service as you would find in a boutique hotel. From the moment we opened the doors of our car we were treated like royalty. Looking forward to our next visit very much and this time we will bring the dog.

We were recommended the Four Seasons hotel in Hampshire as an alternative to Chewton Glenn - itself a lovely hotel but more formal than what we were looking for.

The hotel is beautiful - sumptuous, modern with attentive staff. But best of all is the way they made our 3 and 5 year olds feel like individual guests, rather than add-ons to the parents.

Little touches, such as the kids steps up to the reception desk, the box of toys to choose from when checking in, and the names of the kids spelt out in bath letters and chocolates made all the difference.

In the pool, kids are allowed to be kids - within reason. The kids club is fab - our kids loved the golf buggy that took them to see the farmyard animals in the grounds.

The experience was not cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommended if you want luxury weekend to enjoy with your kids.

We too tried the 'Taste of Hampshire' menu at the Four Seasons and sadly, were very disappointed. If the tasting menu is a sample of the A la Carte, heaven help us! We didn't even eat the final course of the frugal five courses on offer as it had the consistency of damp cardboard. The staff were charming and attentive and that, combined with several servings of delicious bread and a very good (although very expensive) bottle of wine eased the digestion of what was a hugely disappointing and frugal meal.

If this is a marketing ploy aimed at getting return business then it has failed dismally as far as I am concerned.

I suppose a "tasting menu" with only five courses is a little unusual - most such menu's offer a larger number of courses. However, one makes the assumption that it's quality not quantity that's important and there proves the old addage of "assumptions being the mother of all........ups". I honestly thought "nouvelle" food like this had disappeared back in the eighties along with padded shoulders and hair.

Tiny portions - while nicely presented simply failed on virtually all counts. The first course of "coloured carrots, watercress and orange reduction" sat as maybe three mouthfulls in the centre of a huge plate and consisted of a few carrot shavings and leaves and would have been a contender for the World's Cheapest Starter Awards. I've had more fish in a single goujon compared to the 2nd course. Boasting locally sourced beef from Laversham farm, the "main course" sounded promising - a Wellington of Brisket. Well the meat might have started out well enough but by the time it had been cooked to hell and back it was more like corned beef and the actual "Wellington" was no larger than a small mince pie. The smoked pureed potato totally overpowered everything else. The sweet course was just completely tasteless - a pointless exercise in presentation - and was sent back: a replacement elderflower sorbet repaced it - wow! As for the blue cheese and pears - well the cheese was good although I had to move a grape to find it. It was impossible to conclude that the meal would have been more satisfying had the portions been more generous given the disappointing quality.

The saving grace was the wine - although at £43.00 a bottle (the cheapest wine was circa £35.00) it should have been. The service and staff were also deserving of mention and I guess the never ending presentation of the bread tray relfected the waitresses embarassment of the meal. If it had not been for the bread, we would both have been starving. No one asked if we had enjoyed the meal and probably no one cared. Oh yes and the coffee was just about the worst expresso I have ever experienced. Why?

It was my wife's birthday and maybe the fact I booked at a discounted rate via Travelzoo might have been a factor, but I'm only guessing. At the special offer price it represented poor value for money. Had paid the full price I would have been fuming. Throw in a pretty characterless dining room and it was one of the most disappointing experiences I have had for a long, long time. I can't speak for the rest of the hotel apart from the fact it appeared empty.

Promotions like this are there to get bums on seats in the hope that by adding in wine and a couple of drinks, the establishment covers it's costs. What they need to realise it that in providing a good experience, customers will return and more importantly tell their friends. By providing a poor experience, they achieve the exact opposite. What a waste of marketing.

We stayed 4 nights at this property. We stayed in a deluxe manor room. The room was beautiful and spacious. When we checked in, I did notice a few hairs on the bathroom floor, which I have to mention since this is a Four Seasons and things should be immaculate. However, the room itself was spotless and everything else in the bathroom was very clean and we had no problems with housekeeping during the rest of our stay. I can't say enough how much I loved this hotel. We had spa treatments, went horseback riding, clay pigeon shooting, and did lots of relaxing as well. Explored local villages and pubs and relaxed in the bar every night, where the service was top-notch. I will definitely be back, as soon as time and money permits!

We picked this Four Seasons country hotel for the weekend brake with friends. The grounds are nice, well kept, the actual hotel is beautiful and quite modern. What it lacks is a countryside feel though. In spite of the cold November weather the one or two fireplaces were not on. The bar was very urban and not cosy. It did feel like a big city hotel. For those coming with kids there is a great kids club apparently. What I really enjoyed was the spa, I am a spa junkie and what was really nice - they tailored the treatment to my needs, the whole experience of even choosing the type of light in the room, oil etc was thoughtful. The pool is great too! It is not a cheap place in general and while the dinner was good we felt it was not very good value for money and the fact that they have only one bar full of kids and one restaurant made it just a little disappointing. With regards to the activities - they are totally overpriced e.g. fishing would cost you £160, pigeon shooting £250. I would recommend a long walk to the nearest pub for lunch especially if you are going with the dog(s). Btw to accommodate your doggie you will be charged £30 and you would not be allowed to leave the dog in the room without the dog sitter for additional charge.
