Night-time staff poor

Posted 18-Nov-2014
Pros: The check-in and check-out daytime staff and the staff at breakfast time.
Cons: Staff knowledge of where rooms are, transport shuttle service to the far lodges and rooms, and staff knowledge of breakfast times!
Upon arrival we were offered an early check-in and for us to leave our luggage behind the reception desk (brilliant!) and then a free choice of coffees whilst we waited for a taxi to take us to our destination for the day. First impressions were excellent. However, when we returned at midnight, the staff couldn't agree as to where our room was! We were left to walk through the grounds in the dark, unescorted, with our luggage, with no assistance from the staff. There was a 4-seater 'bus' which was supposedly broken.... and they didn't appear to want to do two trips in the 2-seater to take myself and my partner to our room. Very poor service. It was raining outside too... puddles everywhere... not good when you are dressed up to the nines having been to a wedding all day! The staff also said that breakfast was until 10am.... when it wasn't ! It finished at 930am. We were lucky to get the scraps left behind and that weren't removed to the kitchens. The morning staff and check-out staff were, once again, lovely and helpful. So, in summary, don't stay here if you need to stay overnight ... oh... oops.... it's a hotel. D'oh !

Repeat visit on a sunny weekend!

Posted 12-Nov-2014
Pros: Most Things
Cons: Reception staff training
Location: Hartley Wintney,Antiques Market,Good curry houses.
We have been here before and really like the grounds and surrounding area. The girl who checked us in was very polite and efficient.The lady who checked us out(or tried to)did not have a clue what she was doing.She could not find our booking,if it was paid for or not,which room ect ect.We explained the we already paid Expedia and she still did not understand(By the way she was English!)more training required I think.De Veres staff are usually very good(We stayed at De Vere Hotels many times.

Basic accommodation and not value for money

Posted 23-Sep-2014
I stayed in one of the buildings away from the main house. The room was very basic and tired. My room service took a long time to come and when it did it was cold and not what I ordered. There are hotels available in the area which are the same basic standard and half the price.

Quiet and peaceful location. Ideal wedding venue.

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: Quiet setting and quality of accommodation
Cons: Provision of leisure facilities (pool, gym, sauna)
Fantastic expedia low cost deal had me worried that the hotel would be in the middle of reconstruction or the venue for a noisy pop festival. I could not have been more wrong. The hotel deserves its star rating and is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. The main house is only a few minutes walk from the more modern and slightly lower rate accommodation block that our room was in, but there is plenty of parking, so you can drive between the 2 locations if the weather is bad. We didn't eat at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the quality of the food. However, it was evident that, depending on numbers staying, at least a cooked breakfast was available in the accommodation block we were in. Self service hot drink facilities were available free in the communal seating areas 24/7. The hotel appears well set up as a conference venue and has beautiful grounds if used for a wedding. The lack of leisure facilities was a small negative point and would have been an issue if I had been using this hotel for anything more than an overnight stopover. However, at less than the cost of a tank of diesel for my economy car for a double room I have absolutely no reason to complain.

Good Location to Basingstoke

Posted 07-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
We arrived quite late the reception staff were excellent . The restaurant was closed but we were told we could get a bar snack the receptionist even rang the bar to let them know we were wanting food. Excellent meal and very friendly service. The room was in the grange which was away from the main building but we were able to take the car over. The room was clean and a good size the only down was the fact that we had no window that we could open and it was in July so the weather was very hot. I would stay again but i would ask for a room in the main building with a window that opened
