Very comfortable, clean and well appointed room on first floor. Excellent breakfast choice.
Lack of a lift.
The helpfulness of the receptioist when a map was requested.The quality of the breakfast and the willingness of the serving and cooking staff.
Stayed over a weekend,great price, very comfortable, would recommend!
Pleasant staff and great breakfast. Comfortable room and only about 15 mins walk into Basingstoke.
frendly and helpful staff good location and excellent value for money
Quiet location not far from city centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Excellent value for money on our Saturday night stay and breakfast was varied and freshly cooked. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Good parking and close proximity to town. A big room which is a little dated in style.
Expensive bar and restaurant, yes extortionate.
The bedrooms were an excellent size, the bed was large and comfortable, bathroom large enough and everywhere was clean.Great that there was a desk and 2 comfortable chairs and plenty of tea and coffee.Only downside we bought a drink at the bar and it was very expensive, we think this is where you make your money, but it made us go elsewhere rather than stay in the hotel to socialise also the breakfast was incredibly expensive, we went to the Harvester down the road and had a full English and tea/coffee for £4 as opposed to £15 in the hotel.Exorbitant!Apart from that a very good stay.
The room was comfortable - I was only there one night and out during the evening, so that's all I can comment on.
Corridors are a bit scruffy and claustrophobic, but aren't they all like that?
pricwas excellent, main areas very good, room /bathroom good, breakfast very good, location very good, great feel generally to the hotel
Floor of room creaked really badly so very noisy as you walked .As no air conditioning on a hot day and were unable to open the window more than a couple of inches we were very hot at night, The provided fan was noisy and ineffective.
It works - quick, well-organised, lovely breakfast, no waiting for bills, lifts, check-in/out, newspaper, and outstandingly good value.
The tv is now seen as a profit centre, so it takes a little time to just get the bbc news; but hey! I'm in the hotel software industry myself, so I benefit otherwise.
Convenient location and good dining facility with extremely friendly staff.
Chaos regarding the daily rates. Staff could not get system to agree with quoted prices. Creaking floors in passages.
Efficient service, clean comfortable and quiet rooms and the excellent breakfast.
Location - nice walk into town to work off the large and excellent breakfast
The room was pretty warm despite the window being kept open. No separate shower (though the one on the bath was adequate).
Apart from the very competitive room rate it was the friendy & helpful staff
£4 additional tray cost for room service is very harsh.
