If you're thinking of visiting Hampshire, either as part of a busy business trip or to relax and enjoy all that this spectacular county has to offer, you want to be sure that your accommodation upholds certain standards. Fullers Inns hotels bring with them an assurance of quality, service and superb accommodation, alongside great value for money. While Fullers Inns are generally associated with great beer, they have also lent their seal of approval to a number of Hampshire hotels, ranging from small, pub-hotels, to inns that practically crackle with character.
Fullers Inns Hotels in Hampshire
Fullers Inns hotels are anything but run-of-the-mill. Despite Fullers being a large, prestigious brand, you'll find that hotels housed under their umbrella are encouraged to retain their original characters. The Wykeham Arms in Winchester is a prime example of this at work. It started out in 1755 as a coaching house and is even thought to have served Lord Nelson on his way to Portsmouth. After becoming something of an unconventional bar in the 1900s, it returned to its roots and today you'll find it packed with quirky curios collected by the previous owner. The accommodation is both elegant and charming and has appealed to a number of modern celebrities, including David Bowie and Robert Plant.
Links to the Local Community
Social responsibility is a key standard supported by Fullers Inns. Hotels such as the White Buck in Ringwood, and the Pilgrim's Inn in Southampton, are encouraged to reduce their carbon footprints through saving water, energy efficiency and responsible recycling. In addition, you'll find that, where possible, food and ingredients are sourced locally to create fresh and delicious seasonal menus. Fullers is also aware of the importance of the local community and all their hotels, such as the Cromwell Arms in Romsey, develop firm relationships with their community, supporting them in local projects and donating prizes to local charity fundraising events.
Hampshire is a fantastic county to visit, at any time of the year. If you're looking for accommodation that offers character, quality and social responsibility, underpinned by a commitment to giving guests exactly what they want and need, look for the Fullers Inn brand.
