Reviewed 20 October 2008

The reviews I feel are a little unfair. Yes the hotel is old and the decor reflects this. If you want a modern hotel then don't stay at this one.

Having read the reviews we went along to have a look at the rooms frist and felts they were more the adequate.

Our room was clean, the sheets were lovely fresh white cotton. Towels were clean.

We dined in the restaurant and the meal was excellent especially if you like game. I had venison wellington and it was delicious. We saved a huge amount of money by booking BB and Evening Meal. We paid £15pp and our bill for food would have cost in exccss of £45.

Breakfast had plenty to choose from and ours was fine.

Staff were friendly and helpful although there could have been more of them about when we came to pay the bill!

This is not a luxery hotel but if you like tradition - the hotel was owned some years ago by Lester Piggot's Great Grandfather so there were plenty of horsy pics about. Also fly fishing is popular in this area and again lots of fishy pics about. I say give it a try.

I've stayed here manytimes in the last two years.......and for the last year I've seen it slide slowly into a terrible state. Food is ussually pretty good though.

Rooms are tired looking, grubby, often dirty.....sheets are awful, feel like 100% nylon...certainly very little cotton content.

Matresses range from rock solid to 'well used' and saggy in the middle.

Bathrooms are always dirty, grouting is grubby and often tiles missing.

It simply needs money spent on it, and being the only large hotel in the area, should and could be something special. Just seems IPA aren't prepared to spend any money on it. Current management, although new so can't be too hard on them, seem a little inexperienced and haven't really taken hold of the hotel yet.

Best thing about the hotel is the lovely bar staff / waitress's, all very happy, positive and provide great customer service.

Go for a meal or pint...but dont stay there!

Highfield Country Guesthouse up the road is far superior.

I stayed here with my fiance for two nights as our friends were getting married in nearby Romsey. Thankfully we did not have to spend much time in the hotel. On arrival, we were directed to a room in the annex of the hotel, which was nothing like the rooms pictured on the website. Dust, dirt and cobwebs greeted us, along with a dripping tap in the bathroom, damp and a previous occupant's used towel. Nice touch... The sheets were stained and the room stank of damp.

Breakfast was ok in comparison to the room and the service offered by the staff (grumpy and uncharming) but not as good as I would expect of a hotel charging £80 per night.

We should and would have complained had the hotel not been block-booked by the bride and groom for their guests - we didn't want the happy couple to be stressed or worried about anything before or during their big day, so we kept quiet.

Please don't waste your money by staying here.

Have just come back from a 2-night stay at the Grosvenor Hotel. I was told that the hotel was the best in the area. This may be the case, but I haven't stayed in any other hotels in Stockbridge, so I couldn't comment on this! However, me, my husband and my parents were all slightly disappointed.

The hotel needs a makeover. It's very dark and is a mixture of 60s/70s chic (!) and country living. The temperature around the hotel also seems to need controlling. Me and my husband stayed in one of the rooms upstairs and were absolutely baking (there was no visible a/c). My parents on the other hand stayed in one of the rooms out the back and felt damp and cold (it was a chilly and wet May weekend, but there is no excuse).

The breakfast in the morning provided lots of variety and definitely filled a hole. However, we waited 30 mins for it on our first morning and 10 mins on our second. On this occasion our sausages were all raw.

I think the one main problem we had with this hotel was the service, both before we arrived and after. The hotel had tried to bump my parents out of their room 2 weeks before we were due to arrive. Because my parents had booked the hotel 8 months before and we were going to Stockbridge for a wedding, we were not pleased. (We later found out from the Bride and Groom that the hotel had also double-booked their honeymoon suite). The staff were pleasant, but in no way bent over backwards.

Overall, pleasant for a short stay, but would look elsewhere if we were in the area again.
