          Location excellent. Nice comfortable hotel to unwind. Good for business or weekend away. Close to walk to Alton and in a car immediately out in the countryside.

          My husband and I were very impressed with the hotel in general, the rec eption staff were very friendly and helpful, likewise the restaurant staff when we returned in the evening for dinner. The food we thought was very good and good value including the breakfast where there was plenty of choice. All in all, we were well satisfied and would not hesitate to book in if we visited that part of hampshire again.

          Nice hotel. We stayed in a 4 poster room. It was relatively spacious. Decor was a bit dated, but all round a nice room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great for the price. Very close to bars and restaurants.

          We were a bit dissapointed that there wasn't a really nice restaurant in we could walk to in Alton. Lot's of pub food, but nowhere you could really dress up for a night out. However, that's not a reflection on the hotel.

          Convenient for visiting relatives. Fairly basic but perfect for our needs. Only had breakfast but it was fine for our needs and the staff were helpful and kind.

          Floor in bedroom had not been cleaned in a 'long' time

          Nice local hotel close to transport and family

          The large room was a delight... Wfi was not free in rooms/ only downstairs. The large hanging space had one hanger, asked a few times for more and did not receive any...

          Location in Alton. Parking facility. History of Hotel

          Winter duvet on bed. Observation for your benefit:- Wife and I had breakfast and paid bill afterwards for extras. She asked for money for the newspaper. I asked if breakfast was included in room bill [ already paid ] She said No. She then apologised and and added the breakfast charge. If I was not honest I could have walked out without paying for the breakfast. We did not have to sign for the breakfast or produce the key. Also, receptionist did not double check by asking if we had just had breakfast.

          The staff were very friendley and welcoming

          we had a 4 poster bed in our room, perhaps it was because we are tall but we could see the thick dust around the top rail, also it was only laid out for one person, one bath towel and one hand towel one soap ect.

          Location...came from Alton and its a good base to stay and catch up with people.

          We did get waken up by the room next door - so the walls are quite thin...that said we did like our room.

          This is hotel-keeping of a high standard. The staff are enthusiastic, friendly and attentive. The public areas are comfortable, warm and welcoming. Dinner in the attractive restaurant was excellent. My room was spacious, comfortable and well-furnished.
