Lainston House hosted my daughter's wedding this weekend. Everything they did for her was beyond professional. Our suite was immaculate, the private dinig room hosted a family dinner the first night (get Alissandro to look after you when dining - discrete, relaxed, charming - lovely man), everything else form putting dodgems in their garden to performing a backup emergency car...

We have stayed here a number of times and at Pennyhill Park, another hotel under the same brand. This hotel consistently delivers on a number of things - the rooms are well presented and the food is great. The location is peaceful although the facilities are poor (gym is poxy) and there is very little to do except sit, walk...

Great start by being upgraded to a suite, rather traditional and chintzy but loads of space. Massive bathroom, huge bed and lovely and cosy. The evening meal was out of this world, absolutely delicious, three types of bread, complimentary amuse Bouche and pre dessert !!! I had quail, beef and chocolate, hubby had ham, turbot and cheese! All outstanding !...

My husband and I returned from a one night stay at this beautiful hotel yesterday. We were accompanied by two other couples and we all had a lovely time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Drive through the gates of Lainston House, up the winding drive, you will enter a world where historic charm and contemporary elegance blend seamlessly. This charming 17th-century country house is a luxurious five star hotel, encapsulated in 63 acres of Hampshire parkland. A peaceful drawing room, sumptuous individually designed bedrooms and food created with passion (awarded 3 AA rosettes). The Cedar Bar is the place to relax for a cocktail and the outdoor terrace is even more so for sipping a glass of Champagne or a chilled glass of wine over a light lunch in Summer months. Don't forget to book for Afternoon Tea, a day in the on-site Cookery School or a spot of Falconry, located at the back of our stunning kitchen garden. This is a classic Country House where you can put the world behind you whether it be for a creative meeting, a relaxing leisure stay or a family celebration. Minutes away from the historic city of Winchester and only a short drive from Salisbury, Stonehenge and the New Forest. Visit Jane Austin country, Highclere Castle (home of Downton Abbey), Bombay Sapphire Distillery or a local Vineyard such as Hattingley Valley. The famous River Test is close by for perfect fishing and quaint villages to explore. ... more   less
