Lack of masks being worn by the staff. Very disappointed to hardly see any masks at all in the hotel. With groups of people having dinner, and plenty of shouting etc., I wonder if this hotel will be breeding ground for the virus. If staff were to wear masks it would encourage guests. But with no staff including cleaners, waiting staff or anyone else it means that those who want to wear them feel the odd ones out. Very sad to see. Just be careful here.

. Myself and my partner had booked ourselves in to the couples twilight offer. When we arrived we went straight to the spa to book ourselves in. The lady at the desk did not know what the couples twilight offer contained and we had to explain what we had paid for. We attempted to show her the offer on the website but this had been removed. We were then not shown around the facilities and had to make our own way to the changing rooms. This first encounter felt particularly unprofessional and did not make us feel welcome. We then went to the pool and there was no available seating. I then went back to reception and asked if more seating could be arranged to which the first response was no. After I explained to the spa manager about the experience we had paid for, a staff member bought in two loungers from outside - both of which were extremely wet as it had rained all day. As part of the deal we were also meant to be provided with welcome drinks and then prosecco during our private hot tub experience. I also had to ask for this on a number of occasions which felt particularly awkward as the offer could no longer be looked up to see if this was true by staff so it took alot of asking. Furthermore, we were told we would receive a private hot tub experience. Whilst we were given a private room with the hot tub outside. I would not call it private as many children were running around outside on the green by the hottub which again felt uncomfortable and was not relaxing. Lastly, at dinner, we again had to explain to staff the offer we had been given and staff did not understand which food was or was not included in this offer. Considering we paid £170 for the offer and it was also my birthday we felt it was an extremely poor experience and we will definitely not be returning. We were not treated very well and felt the facilities really lacked for what we paid for. I

Warning to travellers....on our way to the hotel we got ''pinged'' ..... Solent hotel said they could not accept the last minute cancellation and refused us pensioners a refund and did not offer a voucher. We could have easily not told them about the covid app. request to isolate and carried on with our stay.

The hotel and spa is lovely looking but they are lacking on several minor details which bring the experience down. The room was not ready on time- 10 minutes late but they did offer a complimentary drink. The complimentary wine and fresh fruit was not in the suite as promised, we had to ask several times for the wine too, we gave up to try and ask about the fruit. A wedding party took over the whole lawn area, leaving their reserved area empty and preventing hotel guests from using it. Spa reservation moved- apparently they called but we never received any missed calls. We ordered venison of the specials menu at £26 each (which had halibut on the menu), received bill for £30 each. When questioned they showed us another menu with the venison at £30 each and no halibut on the menu. They also didn’t put the prepaid amount from the package on our bill, so make sure you say if you have this. Food and drink seems hiked in price compared to other similar establishments. Cocktails approximately £10 each and bottles of wine start at approximately £28. The suite was lovely looking but the TV had limited options, not even the TV guide was working, and no ambient lighting in the lounge, it’s either all the lights or none. Second night, we reserved a particular table outside, which they had given away to someone else. No mention of “how was your stay” upon departure. Overall disappointing in areas of service, particularly the hike in price of venison whilst we ate it but a lovely hotel.

We stayed in a standard room for 2 nights, which was plenty big enough. There was a separate sofa seating area, good size TV, 2 changing areas, plenty of storage, a safe, and everything else you could need. Plenty of drinks included, with paper cups to takeaway, biscuits etc etc. We had the package which included breakfast and dinner. Firstly, breakfast was EXCELLENT. Offerings of cooked breakfast (multiple types), waffles, pancakes, fruit, pastries were all delicious. Dinner was very good too, although not many options if you don't like seafood. All fresh and tasteful. Service was also excellent, all staff were courteous and helpful. This was true of reception, maids, and especially restaurant / bar staff. The room decor was bordering on classic and tired. The bathroom more towards the tired side. Nothing bad enough to complain about though. We visited the Portsmouth area and South Downs etc so location was ideal. There was no road traffic noise, or noise from other guests either. Pool area was well kept, and had regular tests by the staff. Sauna, Steam room, whirlpool all working and had number of users restricted. Would stay again if in the area.
