We went to Lainston House for a night away to celebrate Valentine's Day and a birthday. I don't think our experience could have been any better. Lainston House is set high on a hill, approached by a beautiful winding drive and the views from the hotel, in particular the vista from the back aspect to the road, are marvellous. The...

Stayed for a couple of nights recently. The room was lovely, really didn't feel like you were in a hotel at all. The bathroom, again felt "unique". The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the location is idyllic. On the downside, I think the food is over priced really. Oh, and our room was a long walk to...

Absolute treat to stay one night in this lovely hotel. The room (Olive) was very large and well appointed, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom splendid. We had the 8 course taster menu with wine and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would most definitely return.

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
