Stayed in this hotel 31st May for 1 night to attend a Christening nearby the next day. The hotel wasn't the cheapest we could get in the area for one night but we went direct with them and got a good deal for bed, breakfast and dinner. We would definitely stay here again. The staff and their customer service were second to none and it makes such a difference to the whole stay! The room was clean and comfortable and the food in the restaurant was out of this world, again helped by the friendliness of the staff. I couldn't choose between two of the gorgeous desserts on offer so the waitress gave me a bit of both. Breakfast was also to a really high standard. We didn't get time to use the spa but definitely will next time.
Overall a real treat - we'll be back.

This night away was own by my wife in a Xmas raffle. As it's only 10 mile down the road we arrived early after stopping at the coffee shop in the hillier a garden centre at a botley. Superb afternoon tea there I must say. Room available early and an exceptional sized room considering it was free. After a leisurely sauna and swim ( no jacuzzi and needs a bit of attention but suits a purpose) we opted for a few drinks outside. Apart from some arrogant golfers it was pleasant. Opting for dinner at the restaurant was the best decision yet. Fresh, local and excellently presented. No problem with changing bits of the menu, we had pigeon and black pudding for starters, my wife had the chicken and I opted for the duck main. This was followed by one of the best cheese board selections ever. Nice touches with 2 plates with happy birthday and happy anniversary in chocolate with chocolate truffles.
Peppy pig families did not ruin this for us, great to see children behaving in what is quite an adult orientated hotel. Shame I can't say the same for the a Golfing lot.

Have just enjoyed one of the best afternoon teas ever (we have done a few). Starting off with a glass of real champagne. Excellent selection of sandwiches, cakes and 2 large scones with jam and cream. Good luck if you can eat it all. Unlimited tea or coffee all very nicely served in individual pots. Another plus was the fact that we had proper table cloths and napkins. The staff took time out to chat with you and ensuring that everything was satisfactory. Certainly recommended.

Stayed at this hotel prior to going on a cruise from Southampton. I chose this hotel because the reviews for the hotels near the cruise terminal were not good. Lovely location as the hotel is attached to the golf course. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I asked and got a room on the reception stored my luggage as I was not leaving the hotel until later in the morning.

We had a lovely relaxing break. Our spa treatments were fantastic & the staff were very friendly but professional. We had 2 twin rooms (4 guests) which were spacious & clean.
Afternoon tea when we arrived was fantastic, freshly prepared sandwiches, cake & warm scones. Breakfast was also very good with beautifully presented range of fruits, cereal, meats & cheeses. Cooked breakfast was also available. Every member of staff we spoke to were polite & friendly remembering us on the 2nd day.
We felt that the hotel was a little dated, the soft furnishings very drab. A childrens playpen in the reception area does not make a good impression. Also soundproof the treatment rooms, children playing in the pool & doors slamming spoil the relaxing ambience.

We stayed at Botley Park as a group of friends had organised a golf competition at the course attached to the hotel
Our rooms were not ready on time but the hotel is so outdated , long corridors almost like Butlins of bygone years

The staff we very helpful and friendly but the food was terribly disappointing

I understand the course is going to be demolished for houses and the hotel is to be saved regrettably I think it should be the other way round
