Wonderful location for Southampton and the New Forest . Delightfully located in beautiful grounds with walks and a lake full of waterlillies. Friendly staff giving one a warm welcome. Clean well presented room with good wifi that actually works reliably. One of the best breakfasts we have had with an excellent choice. An excellent spa with pool. Lovely views from room. We would not hesitate to return again. A credit to the staff and management.

Quick check in though I think it would have been better to be informed of when and where breakfast was served, where the pool was. We were not told of any of this. The room was clean and warm. Provision of toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel was very clean. Staff friendly. Evening meal very good although very pricey for what you got (we were on a deal where the evening meal was included so this was very good). Buffet breakfast. Lovely grounds plenty to explore. Close to Southampton if you want to visit. Would definitely return.

The hotel is situated in a quiet location in the immediate vicinity of the Science Park of the University of Southampton, with amazing gardens and magnificent trees which really are worth exploring. We stayed for only one night and got a really great deal booking directly with the hotel and so really have little negative to say for the price we paid. We had a comfortable, clean room and all the usual amenities we now come to expect were provided. We slept really well as it is away from any main roads so no traffic noise. Whilst the room was nice, the reception area and bar don't have much of a welcoming ambience and bar snacks etc were a little pricey, but it is a hotel so only to be expected. We had breakfast in the dining room, which again lacked ambience, but there was a good choice, although the cup of tea from the flask left a little to be desired - much prefer a pot of tea on the table. Staff were OK and helpful.

We stayed here on a cruise stay and park package. Cost included hotel, parking, transfers by taxi to and from the port, breakfast, late checkout and complimentary tea and coffee until you left. Service was ok, no one went the extra mile. We had a standard room, I think if we stayed again we would upgrade as the room was quite small. The grounds were very pleasant for a stroll.

Enjoyable stay in a quiet location, ideal when cruising from Southampton. We found the staff friendly and helpful. If you have time explore the conservation area that adjoins the hotel grounds. Maps are available from Reception. Booking directly through the hotel website ensured a good price and a free breakfast. Although we didn't use it the swimming pool in the adjacent health club looked inviting.

First time I have been to this hotel and was impressed as soon as I drove up the tree lined entrance. The Hotel is set in beautiful grounds with lovely trails through the extensive gardens. Our room was very modern followed by an excellent full breakfast buffet including freshly cooked bread/ pastries and fruit selection. There is a brilliant new leisure complex on site with pool,spa,steam room, sauna and gym. Staff are very professional . Would stay again in the future

Two night experience all inclusive which I considered good value. Room was large but the bed was a small double & not in keeping with the room size. This was disappointing. Facilities around the hotel were good & health club very good. Restaurant was good although did seem overpriced but as we had an all inclusive package this was not a problem. This is an ideal place to visit post Cruises from Southampton as they include taxi costs to & from the port. Overall this was a very enjoyable two days.

Had a business meeting here. Needed to stay the night. I was pleasantly surprised re the value of the room which was up to standard and clean. Breakfast which was decent was included. Late night bar. Would liked to have checked out pool an sauna facilities but work and late bar the night before prevented my trying. Well worth 4/5 but if for pleasure may have scored more.

The hotel is nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and comfortable! Sadly the restaurant badly lets it down. Almost raw french beans and shallots came with my chicken breast and tiny fondant potato! £18 for that. Decided to pass on desert. If I was to stay here again I would go out to eat!

Having just returned from a quick overnight stay I can only say this is a beautiful property set in stunning surroundings. Hotel was easy to find and well signposted. Lovely long tree lined approach unveils the property in all its glory. There is ample parking outside the entrance also. We were greeted very well by the reception staff and were told that the hotel Wi-Fi was unavailable but we could use the staff Wi-Fi for free. Nice touch. We were also told the restaurant options and we'll informed regards breakfast and evening meal times. The room itself was of a great size for my wife, myself and our 3yo. Plentiful amenities and a gorgeous view of the hotel grounds. I can highly recommend a stay here for any purpose as the location is ideal. Quick tip. The Chilworth Arms just outside the main entrance is a beautiful bar/restaurant.
