        The bed was very comfortable and the room was in a quiet part of the hotel. The receptionist (Zanna) was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her.

        This hotel was excellent, and as a regular user of your service have to say that this is one of the best hotels available. Everything was first class and more than value for money

        The staff in the room where we had our evening meal were very good - helpful and courteous.

        Bathroom could have been better

        The hotel was welcoming and not at all intrusive, attentive enough and our meal was very nice.

        Overnight stay and made use of the restaurant after the Southampton football match.

        Quaint, Rustic.

        The rooms were a bit drafty, the exterior of the hotel is in much need of a facelift. The continental breakfast was very basic. The wifi was poor, very restricted, but each room did have free cabled access to the internet which didn't have the same restrictions. It simply meant that working as a group has to be conducted with each of us working in our own room. (Being next store to one of IBM's largest labs in the UK, I'd have expected the hotel to be have more networking facilities. The TV service was also very poor, in this where nearly every house has a minimum freeview service, the hotel was still only offering the basic terrestrial channels.

        Friendly and helpful service Rooms clean and adequate Breakfast good

        Problems with rooms sorted quickly Some question regarding initial booking and rooms we were alocated

        The reception staff were really friendly and helpful.

        The restaurant wasnt the best organised and some of the staff were miserable!

        The room was very well decorated and very comfortable even with a toddler bed and infants cot.

        I had requested a toddler bed and infants cot on my online reservation and this was not ready when we arrived at 9pm. The young lady at reception hastily organised this and kindly reduced our bill on departure.

        Very welcoming in a lovely location and very pretty thatched roof. From just walking in to the reception was made to feel special. Dinner and breakfast were very good.

        Staff were friendly and helpful and hotel was very clean and well presented

        Check-in was a bit chaotic, restaurant menu choice could have been wider

        My boyfriend and I spent the most fantastic 3 nights here We were welcomed most warmly, the room was sensational, quiet, peaceful, relaxing. The standard of cleanliness was very high. We particularly loved the pictures on the corridoors and in the room. We had a fabulous carvery meal, enjoyed the grounds. We will return in the not too distant future and this will always be a special place for us

        A late booking meant we had 2 rooms at concessionary rate on our way to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Very nice place with good reception staff.

        We arrived about 9pm and the menu said food was served until 9.30pm but a rather sullen bar tender said "no food now we have just stopped" at 9.15pm and was very unhelpful. I could see the pub was quiet and understand why they finished service early but felt the way he dealt with this was very poor and I was annoyed and hungry.Also staff didn't put out the hot breakfast until 7.50am although breakfast started at 7.30. As we needed to get off we skipped this. This is a nice place and I hope the managers will pick up these comments and sort out what should be 2 realitvely easy to solve problems.
