The Bugle is an eighteenth century coaching inn set in a picturesque village. The reception was very warm and friendly. Upstairs is a bit of a rabbit warren, with just eight guest rooms. My room was small and not ensuite, with shower and toilet facilities a short walk down the corridor. A full English ...
Easy check in staff informative and helpful rooms have all needed for stay and go breakfast in morning and free tea and coffee
Could not fault it; great customer service from the moment you press the door bell, lovely clean room with good quality linens, shower room a bit compact but spotless. Enormous breakfast that sets you up for the day. Off street parking and walking distance to town. Highly recommend.
Our stay at Abbey Lodge was excellent, the location is the most convenient, very tidy and clean room and washroom facilities, very delirious and more than plentiful breakfast. Our host was the most accommodating, pleasant and helpful. We would like to thank her for a lovely stay.
We booked this accommodation as it appeared to offer exactly what we were after. A lot of hotels on booking websites are now so often "room only" with extra costs for breakfast Tec. Also, a lot of the so called "budget" are just as expensive as the top hotels. This was different in that you had to ...
Hotel good but some confusion whether it was North or South, sat nav takes you to wrong one. Biggest gripe service area only has Costa (closes at 7 p.m) or MD for food.

Stayed here for 2 nights, Sunday and Monday with my partner. Staff and locals very friendly, it's a pub so there was fairly constant noise of chatter and music, but we expected this and it was of no concern. Room was comfortable but a little small, shower room a tight squeeze for my partner who's ...
Wherever you stay, whether it's the heart of vibrant Southampton or the picturesque countryside of the South Downs National Park or the New Forest National Park, you'll normally benefit from WiFi access. Many two star hotels offer this service in all rooms and public areas, and some also provide high-speed internet connections along with printing and faxing facilities, making them ideal for business travellers.
See the beautiful Medieval Merchant's House, a refurbished timber-framed house that dates back more than 700 years and is a Grade I-Listed landmark. Southampton is also home to the Guildhall, a major live entertainment venue organising numerous high-profile concerts throughout the year in a building that was once a town hall. Learn more about the city's maritime heritage by visiting the SeaCity Museum, see the historic Town Walls, then visit the Solent Sky plane and aviation exhibition.
Southampton is also home to the acclaimed University of Southampton, which celebrated its 60th anniversary as a fully-fledged university in 2012 and is one of Britain's leading research institutions. If you're visiting friends or family studying here, you can find numerous value-for-money 2-star hotels close by.
See the remarkable 170-metre-tall Spinnaker Tower, then visit the Mary Rose Museum where you can see a preserved shipwreck that sank near Portsmouth during Tudor times and was miraculously recovered and preserved for posterity a few years ago.
For a deep insight into local maritime history, visit HMNB Portsmouth, an enormous harbour that is still used by the British Royal Navy and includes one of the world's first dry docks. Here, you can observe numerous historic ships, one of the most notable of which is HMS Victory, used by Lord Nelson during the Napoleonic Wars.
The Mary Rose Museum is dedicated to the Mary Rose ship, which was built in the 16th century but sunk in the summer of 1545. This incredible exhibition venue would never have existed were it not for the sterling efforts of the Mary Rose Trust to retrieve and restore the Mary Rose ship from deep beneath The Solent. The trust managed to save it in 1982 and towered into to the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, where it was carefully stored and conserved before becoming the centrepiece of the new museum.
If you want some extra time to explore Hampshire's attractions without having to cart heavy suitcases around with you, then choose a two star hotel with left luggage facilities. Many establishments are also happy to arrange early check-ins or late check-outs to ensure your trip runs as smoothly as possible.
Explore the scenic New Forest National Park and observe its families of donkeys, ponies and deer. You could also visit the historic city of Winchester, which has a rather fine medieval cathedral and served as the capital of England during Saxon times.
