Perfect weekend destination

Posted Feb 27, 2017
Pros: Pretty much everything! The staff do elevate the experience from something that is already good, to something that is special
Cons: The breakfast - cooked breakfast was lukewarm and the continental selection was limited
Location: Easy reach for a number of great places to explore - Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, Winchester, Stockbridge
Hotel was everything I expected from a country house hotel. I cannot praise the staff highly enough - professional, courteous and go out of their way to make your stay special. The location is perfect - easy to get to interesting places but with the relaxing country setting. Dinner on the Saturday night was amazing - well worth the money.

A classic country house hotel

Posted Jan 24, 2017
Pros: Its style and grandeur.
Cons: Drinks prices are off the scale and could be greatly improved, it's one thing asking for £12 for a gin but to add £3 for the tonic is a bit steep.
Location: Winchester is a great place to spend a weekend lots to visit and do.
A warm friendly country house hotel with lots of wood panelling and open fires and very helpful staff. In all a pleasant break.

A bygone era

Lainston House is simply magical! Very elegant, but not too stuffy. From the beautiful grounds to the historic old English Manor. Its like being at Downton Abby. The food, and drinks are good, but pricey. Still it's the type of establishment that can demand high prices. The room vas fabulous and extremely comfortable beds. On top of all of that, fantastic staff. I can't wait to return!!!

Perfection.Fabulous hotel and excellent customer service. Sheer indulgence. I wish other hotels would aspire to the same high standards. Decent sized rooms notwithstanding the fact that we had single occupancy. I will look forward to staying again!
