    The Avenue restaurant was superb, the bar staff excellent and ambience good.

    We were upgraded which was appreciated but the furnishings were tired and basic.

    We would have liked to see a little more choice on menu pricing.

    My wife and I were celebrating our first wedding anniversary at Lainston House, having had a magical wedding celebration there. They remembered us and upgraded us to a suite. The room was amazing: large with a great four-poster bed, espresso machine, Jacuzzi and lovely wood panelling and shutters. The quality of food and wine at The Avenue was top notch. The staff there were very attentive. I also made use of their gym and we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. All in all, it was a wonderful visit.

    My Wife has always wanted to experience Lainston House and we weren't disappointed by anything. Right from walking up to the wonderful entrance through to the view of the house as we left, the whole experience can only be described as wonderful. Great staff, fantastic location, wonderful food. Everything that we thought it would be and more. A great start to the holiday season. Thank you.

    Attention to detail and facilities in bedrooms and overall quality of restaurant and bar . Excellent cuisine and service - discreet but attentive. No canned muzak in public areas.

    There is little to complain about but such pampering and luxury comes at a price, so expect restaurant and bar prices to reflect this. One minor niggle - it would have been good to have a choice of complimentary newspaper. The Independent would be few guests' first choice I suspect.

    Wonderful country house hotel with luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. A real treat.

    The service in the restaurant was a little slow.

    Our stay at the hotel was for a wedding. We were pleasantly surprised at the luxurious rooms and really enjoyed walking the dogs in the hotel grounds. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff made us feel very welcome. Many thanks Sharon Crane

    No complaints, a perfect short stay.

    We stayed at the hotel because we were attending a wedding there. On checking in, we learned we had been upgraded to a suite, which we were thrilled with. The facilities for the wedding were superb in the Dawney Barn, the food was excellent and the staff were very efficient and friendly. A wonderful experience all round in luxurious surroundings.

    Staff, generally foreign, were generally friendly and helpful

    Reception desk needs to be staffed and be more attentive. Broken chair in room. No real ale in the bar. No turn down service. Expensive breakfast.
