Individual guest reviews

  • Location is central Basingstoke and best Scrambled Egg I have had in a Hotel. Staff is very friendly and all rooms experienced have been clean and tidy. Good restaurants close by.

    Poor service from start to finish and worst bed I have ever had the displeasure of sleeping in. No food available after 9pm, not even a sandwich.

  • Duty manager helpful location, convenient for BR station to spend day in London and for the money, there are much better hotels around the area. The staff truly are excellent and for the price we paid could not have faulted the room. Good shopping mall very close by and afternoon bar man very pleasant and new a sprtizer used soda not lemonade.

    Decor old, b/f service was poor and tables dirty, the Receptionists were less than accommodating. Bathroom was absolutely freezing, breakfast was busy.

  • The location was good, staff were very friendly across the whole hotel and the service at reception was perfect. Room was comfortable and spacious, towels were comfy and soft, reasonable breakfast for the price and I left feeling pretty happy. Receptionist was extremely welcoming and helpful.

    Decor a little tired and bed was uncomfortable. Toilet did not work well, meals available were poor and standard of food was poor for a resturant of three stars.

  • Very helpful, good location, easy to park and straight on the high street. Great value for money, decently priced venue I am aware of and price reasonable. Very central in Basingstoke, ideal for visiting friends and relations live in the vicinity, friendly staff, very pleasant Receptionists.

    Silly thing is, don't most hotels have a bar and a restaurant, the rooms are not air conditioned, only egg available at breakfast is scrambled.

  • The location is fabulous and the hotel is central to the town. The reception staff must be trained to be as surly, the TV has freeview and the bathroom is functional and clean, great buffet breakfast to start your day.

    Not good value for money and rooms were tired. Music was far too loud.
