4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Been looking for houses in the area and stayed here for 2 nights, what a pleasure, staff very helpful, room clean and functional, didn't eat in the restaurant at night, but breakfast was great, again staff could not do enough for you. Plenty of parking at the rear but you have to pay, free after 6pm till 8 am, bar staff are great, recommend a stay here.

There's lots to say to the good both about Romsey and the hotel, but I must complain about facts that let the town and the hotel down. First, the railway station is more than half a mile from the centre of town and there were no taxis waiting to pick up rail travellers. I understand there are only two taxi businesses in town. Maybe someone ought to become an Uber driver. Second, the hotel. As an older and less agile traveller, I would have liked a grab-bar in the shower and a shelf on which to place shampoo, etc. If an hotel is going to supply special brandname cosmetics, why not include soap or at least jars of hand and face cleansing products? I will admit that when a staff member saw that stairs were difficult for me, she managed to change my room from the second floor to the first. But there was no lift, and no thought that visitors might need one.

Extremely disappointed! I have had afternoon tea here on numerous occasions and had been very impressed, hence the decision to take my daughter and future son-in-law here to celebrate their forthcoming wedding. On previous occasions we had been offered tea top ups, but not once were we offered extra hot water or tea! The size of the scones have been reduced by half and I can only describe the jam as fruit jus, it ran off the scones. I also emailed the hotel to give feedback and they didn't have the manners to reply! Will not be going there again in a hurry. Expensive and living on past reputation!

We have lunch in the Brasserie about once a month. The menu offers a wide range of choices from light bites to full three course meals. Many of the dishes are traditional in nature but often with a "twist". The staff are friendly and the surroundings attractive. A day in Romsey is always a day well spent - particularly if it includes a visit to the White Horse.

Celebration lunch time event for 40 people. Three course meal could not be faulted. Good quality, freshly cooked, hot and efficient service. Well done the staff. Would visit again to sample the other dishes.

Comfortable one-person rooms for a good price. Good location, in a great historic building. Very enjoyable stay and helpful staff. I stay here quite regular for work and I am very pleased every time. Always clean rooms, so nothing to complain about really.

Booked for weekend celebration of Mum's 79th birthday and so glad we did. The staff so, so friendly and helpful, the rooms snug (guess so as building is a few hundred years old!!) but very comfortable and well maintained. The brasserie is excellent for all food and drink with knowledgeable head staff. There were 4 birthday parties in for dinner and each had a personal Happy Birthday sung by the staff. Highly recommended...

We stayed in one of the Junior suites. The room is amazing, lots of space and furnished to a very high standard. Large bath and walk in shower, sofa and a very comfortable bed providing a great nights sleep. Large Tv plenty of wardrobe space. Nespresso coffee machine......PERFECT thank you 10/10

The white horse is excellently situated to enjoy a evening in romsey, Nice clean hotel , but the room we had was a little cramped as was the bathroom hence i dont think it was worth the money , excellent breakfast , nice bar area but bar a bit limited in choice. I like the location so will stop here again

Afternoon tea in a 500 year old hotel is exactly as you would expect it. Old beams and lots of brown varnish timbers surround you as you enjoy 4 finger sandwiches and 8 different cakes and scones with plenty of refreshing tea. A visit to Romsey Abbey, around the corner, followed by tea at the White Horse is a delightful way to spend an afternoon.
