Meon Valley Marriott Hotel & Country Club

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Only had a short while in which to play so opted for the 9-hole course (Valley course) rather than the full 18-hole option (plus, it was a lot less expensive). No frills course, and greens not the in the best condition (end of March tho), but all in all quite playable. Bumped into the local ladies golf lesson at the 4th tee and so skipped that hole, but got my £12 worth out of the rest of it.

Lunch time food is very basic and the quality is not up to standard. The lunch time staff are as helpful as possible but they are not well organised. Service was very slow. Over an hour and fifteen minutes for very simple fare.

I recently organised a golf break for 20 ladies and I could find very little to be disappointed about. I had hesitated before making the booking after reading the reviews posted by previous guests but I am very pleased I chose to ignore these and went ahead. As an organiser you take it personally if not everyone of your party enjoys the weekend due to the venue and everything that venue has to offer. The weather was our only disappointment and that unfortunately is beyond anyone's control. Everyone spoke very highly of the friendly welcome received by the reception staff and were delighted that the rooms were ready before playing golf. The rooms were all well presented, with large televisions and a fridge, they were clean and spacious and all had two double beds. The bathrooms could be viewed as slightly dated but they do have powerful showers over baths so are definitely of a good standard. The food in the bar is deemed a little expensive but the portions are large and were all delicious so for the average visitor it would be advisable to share. The menu in The Cast Iron Bar offered a good choice for dinner and again was of a very good standard. The breakfast was also one of nicest hotel breakfasts we had had offering an excellent choice and the sausage and bacon was of good quality. The staff in all areas were polite and helpful and all areas of the hotel were immaculately clean. To get free wi-fi in your room become a Marriott friend - easy. The golf course was a little soggy in places and the fairways had slightly longer grass than would be normally but we completely appreciate that the type of soil that a course is layed on and after the continual bad weather no course would be perfect at this time of year. This was a great value break and I would highly recommend. As a group we will definitely be returning to play and stay at Meon Valley in the future.

I stay in hotels more than most so I have seen the good, the bad and the downright ugly. Arrived at this hotel late on a cold winters evening to a pretty average reception. This was nothing compared to what was waiting for me in my room. It was freezing. So cold it was warmer outside. The only heating in the room was a rather dated electric panel heater which took me about 10 Minutes to work out how to switch on as the light was broken. When I called reception they just didn’t seem to care. Had to wait around a good 30 Minutes with my Canada Goose Coat zipped up fully to get the room warm enough to take my coat off. Next morning I had breakfast with two US colleagues who were seriously upset. One commented that this was the worst Marriott they had ever stayed in. This was followed by one of the cleaners deciding to vacuum the dining room in the middle of our breakfast meeting. I thought I was having a bad dream. If you are thinking of staying here I have one peace of advice. Don’t...!!!

...last week of, in effect, four months using the hotel as a base whilst working in the area. Have to say that the staff have been uniformly excellent and it has become a veritable 'home-from-home'. Suite rooms are quite cosy for a regular stay and there is good attention to the various Platinum privileges. Have eaten far too many Eggs Benedict here in the last four months too. Sadly, never got the clubs out the back of the car but the golf course looks spiffing and quite a challenge. They do some very good early bird deals as well, amazing prices for a 4* hotel. Lastly, have to mention Teresa - you knew I would! - who has been consideration personified, for example when the Beast from the East hit and I wanted to check out early. You are a star young lady... your management team should be very proud of you!

We had a ground floor suite, and check-in was faultless. However, I had requested a toothbrush pack on the App and there wasn't one in the room. There was no robe either, but one was provided on request. Overall, the stay was good, but just a review improvements are needed, especially around requests made via the App and Chat,

My sister and I took our Mum for a Mother’s Day treat of an afternoon tea. Unfortunately, we had to wait at least 5 minutes before a member of staff even approached us, we were then asked to wait. After another five minutes, whilst the staff member did other jobs, we were asked is we wanted to see a menu, we said no thank you as we’d booked afternoon tea. She told us to sit down and she’d come over. She didn’t ask for our name or the time of the booking We then waited for another 15 minutes and still no service. By now it was 25 minutes after our reservation time. We left the restaurant (now 30 minutes after pulling into the car park) feeling very disappointed after such appalling lack of attention and service. Luckily the Botleigh Grange Hotel were very accommodating and we experienced excellent service, lovely food and a more pleasant ambience for the same price. Thanks to this very different experience the Mother’s Day treat was not ruined.

The Hotel was calm and at a very good quality/price ratio in this season. The breakfast was also at a good level. Special kudos to the receptionnist who did an amazing job on March 2nd morning to find me a Taxi to go to Heathrow while Southampton airport was closed.

The hotel is fine but I am here on business so I need to work. It’s 2018 and you have to pay to access the Internet. Amazing! No one told me when I checked in so I planned to work in bed but I can’t but I’m not getting up getting dressed and going downstairs again.

Stayed for 4 nights. Room could do with moderation. Iron grill food was OK, not fantastic. Staff were all very helpful and nice. Room was situated next to stair and entrance to leisure club , noise was horrendous from very early morning throughout day . Soundproofing was terrible.
