Great place

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Most everything although there was no air conditioning. We were comfortable though.
Location: We were near the town of Winchester- not walking distance. We could take a taxi into town.
We had a good experience. The restaurant food was quite good as was the service.

Beautiful Hotel and excellent service

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Lovely little touches like the branded rubber duck in the bathroom and the 'Do Not Disturb' soft toy owl.
Location: Just outside Winchester and a short drive to the new Forest
The room was fantastic. Very clean and comfortable. We had a suite with 4 poster bed. The bathroom was huge with walk in shower and large bath. We dined at the hotel on the Saturday night. We opted for the 8 course tasting menu with wines. This was a bit on the pricey side but the menu looked promising. Although we both enjoyed the meal some of the courses were a little 'strange' and ill conceived. We didn't come away with the wow feeling we expected. We would definitely stay here again, but next time we would order off the la a carte menu.

Overnight Stay

Posted May 28, 2014
Pros: Excellent staff, fabulous ensuite, superb breakfasts.
Cons: In our room there wasn't a mirror over the desk, as the TV is placed there. This makes it difficult to get ready to dry your hair or apply make up.
We stayed overnight as we were attending a friends wedding at the Hotel. We have stayed several times before and as always the staff were helpful and the hotel is beautifully situated.

Beautiful hotel

Posted May 6, 2014
On arrival we found we had been upgraded to a suite. It was beautiful and spotless. The staff were great and the uniforms were green tweed! The only downside which is not the hotels fault, I personally found the evening food a bit fussy, so we ate off the bar menu instead. What we did order was fab. We will definitely be returning.

Old English grandeur

Posted Nov 10, 2013
Pros: Ambiance, food and the staff!
Cons: Insulate the ceilings and replace the carpet.
Location: Extremely peaceful setting, but 10 minutes from Winchester!
We loved staying here, our room was comfortable and the bathroom outstanding. The carpet was possibly in need of a good clean, but otherwise I could not fault the room. My only criticism was that our room was on the middle floor and we could hear talking in the dining room at night (we were directly above it) and then to make matters worse, we could hear the guest in the room above: every footfall, often causing the light fitting in our room to rattle and then being woken up at 5am with heaving items being dropped! Having said this, I would stay again, but I would ask to be on the top floor! The food is outstanding!

an excellent hotel

Posted Oct 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
obviously, I was extremely satisfied with the best hotel I have used in a long while and in numerous countries. My only suggestion for chane relates to the dining menu. A short menu, with each dish done well is by far the best approach for many reasons, but it would be better to, for example, to change half the menu on alternate days so there is more variety for multi-night stays. The meals I had, by the way, were excellent

I Just Can't Fault It!

Posted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
And I can't really add anything to the title above. A superb hotel where everything was great. From service to quality of room, food, general ambience and so on, all aspects were positive. We will definitely stay at the Lainston again.
