Very impressive building with helpful staff. But bear in mind no lift to upper floors. And found access to pool and facilities restricted because of our children.

From the moment I booked I was dealt with by two gentlemen; Dave & Bob. They worked at the front desk, they were such wonderful hosts! Information was provided, conversation was had, and they gave such warm greeting on arrival - nothing was too much trouble for them.||||The room they had specially chosen for us, was delightful. A two floored room with a bendy staircase leading to the bedroom overlooking the manor grounds and lake. Two made up swan towels on the bed, and a bottle of wine beside. ||||We had food at from bar menu situated in the main lounge, we were served by lovely staff. I had the local game burger and my partner the chicken ciabatta - both were delicious! But I did have to remove the bacon from my burger as it was so overdone it was solid, my partner chips had been once cooked already resulting in them being very hard and inedible. On the other hand, my portion of chips was enough for the both of us.||||Thanks for a great stay. More...

Nice hotel staff very friendly but the food menu was poor and very over priced £8.00 for a bowl of soup is ridiculous

Had a lovely weekend. A Peaceful location. A good choice at breakfast; flexible evening menu, but could do with a little more choice. Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms nice (I would have liked brighter lighting). We Needed a new light bulb it was replaced inside half an hour. Would definitely come again More...

Glad I booked his hotel before reading negative reviews so I wasn’t put off. ||Beautifully decorated for Christmas and all staff in the Christmas spirit. Rooms clean and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed use of spa which was only a couple of minutes walk away. Ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel which we enjoyed.||Favourite moment: enjoying a glass of red wine but the open fire in the communal lounge. More...

Had a two night break here via Travelzoo. All excellent. Clean, friendly and good food. Beautiful gardens even on a wet day! Sat nav did not take us directly there so ended up in a country lane - but once we found it, it was very spectacular! More...

We stayed here for a spa package which included one night at the hotel. The main building is beautiful so is the garden area around it. Our room was clean and tidy but very average, nothing special. The view from our room was not pleasant, we were staring at the bins. Unfortunately the Friday night we stayed there, there was also a wedding reception which sort of ruined our relaxing spa stay. We were hoping to have an early night but unfortunately due to the noise this wasn't easy. Luckily we had some ear plugs with us! Our room was on the same level with the wedding reception and even though there were heavy fire doors that kept the noise to an acceptable level but unfortunately the wedding guests kept opening these doors and walking down our corridor part our room to get to a fire exit to smoke cigarettes. Some of them also used our corridor as a socialising place I guess to have a "quiet chat". Well it was nice to learn all these things about their lives lol. If it hadn't been this house factor I would have rated this hotel as 5 stars but unfortunately it lost a star because of this. ||But I have to make a special mention about the restaurant. The food over there was absolutely gorgeous! We had the set meal included in our package deal which was 3 course meal and it was amazing, the presentation of the meal, the taste, the amount was all perfect. The waiting times for each course of the meal also was just right and the restaurant service was excellent. Our waitor (who I found out later was restaurant duty manager George P.) was such a polite nice young man. He really went an extra mile to look after us :). I have a mild but allergy and he made sure there was no nuts in anything that went on my plate and he was very thorough to inform me if any of my meal was prepared in the vicinity of nuts. Luckily my allergy is not that severe but I found him very professional regarding this. ||||Also lastly if like to mention another polite young man who was at the reception on 22/11 and 23/11 who was also very polite and helpful. The staff made us feel very welcome there :) More...

Six of us met here to surprise and celebrate a family birthday. From the minute we arrived we were treated exceptionally well- we explained it was a surprise at reception and the really lovely lady said she would keep up the pretence. She and Dave -a delightful young manager-explained about there being several Xmas events on over the weekend and notices were put up at reception to warn us about the noise and possible inconvenience. Considering the number of parties, gatherings etc the hotel coped incredibly well and we were not inconvenienced at all. We were on a dinner, B&B offer and the waiter explained clearly what the offer included and what our allowance against the a la carte menu was. Not all hotels bother to do this and you are left in the slightly embarrassing situation of not knowing what you can order. We must have met 6/7 waiters and waitresses and all were charming even in a very busy breakfast on Sunday when. a second dining room was opened to cope with the numbers. Food was excellent and served very hot. Our rooms were in what I imagine is a recently refurbished area-all new carpets and beautiful bathrooms.All spotlessly clean. I asked at reception about walks in the grounds and was given a map and information sheet to follow. The whole experience gave the feeling of an efficiently run hotel with a team working well together in what could be stressful situations. We will be back-our offer was booked through Telegraph travel and was extremely good value for money. Many thanks to all staff More...

We were 3 couples who booked a Saturday night dinner/bed & breakfast package. We were a bit worried with the recent reviews, but we all had a great stay. ||||Our rooms were good, clean and well decorated - tv, hairdryer, iron, kettle, USB power points, comfortable bed, alarm clock, good shower. We had room 223, which was a little bit bigger than the other two rooms and had two windows. It was at the end of a corridor, so was quiet too.||||Dinner was excellent. No wait to be seated at 7.15pm. Food and drinks orders were taken quickly and arrived soon after. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful. The package allowed us a main meal and either a starter or a dessert. You could add a third course if you paid for it. We had a mixture of soup, salmon and bread/olive starters. For mains we had a selection of chicken, fish (hake) and chicken satay curry. And for desserts, two chose the brownie and fruit sundae. The food was delivered quickly, was hot and tasted great. ||||Sunday breakfast at 9.15am involved a short wait of about 10 minutes to be seated, but was worth the wait. Very good. ||||We checked out quickly, with no queue. The whole experience was very good overall and was excellent value for money. We didn't use the pool as time was limited and it was a pity that rain restricted our use of the grounds, which look very nice. More...

What a fabulous hotel. Rooms large and spotlessly clean. Bed comfortable. Ample tea and coffee with extras available at reception. Food both evening meal and breakfast were good served timely and hot. But what really stands out are the staff. Friendly and helpful...all work exceptionally hard. Very impressed with everything. Public rooms all good and whole hotel lovely and warm. Grounds beautiful. Totally recommend. I work in a four star hotel myself so am quite objective! More...

My husband and I stayed overnight on 14th November as a nice start to our cruise . We stayed for the dinner, bed and breakfast in an executive room. We have stayed a few times before and it really is a relaxing start to our holiday . The hotel itself had beautiful grounds and especially in the Autumn the colour changes of the leaves on all the different trwws are just stunning. Reception staff very welcoming with friendly smiles . Check in was quick and efficency . We were asked what time we would like dinner that evening . The bar is very nice and relaxed with a cosy feel about it. Lovely when the fire is on. Bar staff were efficency and drinks were served in a timely manner. Yes there was a few people waiting but not for long at all. Dinner that evening was the same as always tasty , served hot and beautifully presented . The chocolate orange brownie is my all time favourite pudding . Drinks were offered within 10 minutes of being seated . The restaurant appeared well organised . |The room was clean , nicely decorated with very comfortable beds . We both slept well . Breakfast was buffet style but you could order other items on the menu such as kippers , salmon with scrambled egg etc. We had the full English Breakfast which was delicious with quality sausages and bacon. No issues with staff . I did witness a guest being extremely rude to the waitress though which was really awful . However the waitress dealt with it perfectly in a polite and helpful way despite how rude the guest had been . All staff seemed friendly and helpful .|We also used the spa and had an hours massage each which really was great . I do recommend a visit to the spa for a massage . |I look forward to our next visit in February. More...

Had a really lovely spa day here. The venue was quiet with a lovely pool and spa and good facilities; it's tucked out the way which made it easy to switch off! Towel and a huge fluffy robe were provided; worth remembering slippers or pool shoes though. Lunch was a bento box which was nice enough but nothing special. The treatments (facial and massage) were excellent, however I would have appreciated it if the therapist had spent a couple of minutes speaking with me first... I climbed on the couch and the treatment started with barely a word. Overall a wonderful treat and excellent value for money, I'll certainly be back in the future. More...

Amazing looking lobby bar area, looks especially stunning when done out for Christmas, log fire in winter, service sometimes slow, drinks reasonably priced for hotel bar.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay to celebrate our 11th anniversary.It was our 1st time over here.We were very satisfied with the range and quality of food. Breakfast was also various and fulfilling.It is a romantic place in every season of the year!They have lovely gardens and leisure facilities.The location is ideal, very close to Southampton and Portsmouth.The value of our stay was reasonable and worth it.We struggled with the service of the staff members in a restaurant and a lounge.We expected more to be delivered from such a vintage hotel.The whole situation was sorted out by a duty manager Dave who is very helpful, kind and humourous.A huge thank you to him!Hope to visit you someday again.

I took my best friend to this hotel for a mini getaway prior to her wedding. I booked a fizz, dinner, bed and breakfast package online, and asked for a few things in the requirements box. Sheila from the front desk called me and helped me with all the additional things I requested. On check in Bob and Dave couldn't have been more helpful if they tried! ||||The hotel is beautiful outside and in, the rings are spacious and tastefully decorated. ||||We stayed in room 5 which was a twin room, the beds were incredibly comfortable! ||||Dinner and breakfast were both delicious and again the staff were very helpful and welcoming.

A beautiful period house set in lovely grounds, good breakfast and comfy accommodation.if i had to be picky, the breakfast room was very warm and very busy. Parking was also very busy and although extra parking was available, it was quite a walk from reception for my elderly mother and as it is a one way system, then once you realise you cant park in the front car park, then you have no choice but to use the car parks further away.

I have just returned from a lovely 3 night break at Chilworth Manor and can certainly recommend it! The staff are proactive and friendly - some going the extra mile to please! The restaurant needs someone to 'manage', but this could be easily sorted! The food was very tasty, although portion sizes a little over-whelming! The room was of good size and had all that was needed - maybe a notice about recycling towels, but that is only a suggestion for those that would wish to support the environmental knock on! All in all, a lovely stay - I will definitely return & can highly recommend to others as there are so many things, close by and easily accessed whether shopping or walking, sight seeing etc. More...

Das Chilworth Manor liegt am Rande von Southampton und ist umgeben von einem Park. Es erinnert an ein altes englisches Schloss. Die Zimmer sind klein, aber sauber und die Bäder renoviert (neu gefliest). Es gibt eine große Lobby mit Theke und Kamin. Das brennende Feuer verleiht dem Ganzen Gemütlichkeit. Das Personal ist freundlich. |Wir hatten das Glück und bekamen Room Nr. 1 (Suite auf 2 Etagen) mit tollem Blick in den Park. |Eine Empfehlung sind die pochierten Eier beim Frühstück. Ansonsten leider Einiges In Plastik Verpacktes was nicht zu dem Ambiente des Frühstücksraumes (Altes Kaffeehaus) passt. Auch wenn einige Dinge schon alt sind, versprüht das Hotel einen besonderen Charme. |Wir kommen gerne wieder! More...

Just returned from a few days staying at Chilworth Manor, and I disagree with some of the comments regarding the staff and dining experience. |From when we arrived to when we checked out, we found the staff to be attentive, friendly and very helpful. The restaurant was busy, but there was always enough staff to cover the tables without any problem, and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The food was good, freshly cooked and very generous portions.|The only issue I had was, a major part of the reason for booking this hotel was because it has spa facilities, however they only had 2 available appointments for a massage during our 3 day stay, and although I booked an appointment and arrived 10 minutes early, my husband was going to use the pool while I was in the treatment room, however there was a water aerobics class, so the pool was out of use for general swimming. After waiting in the reception area for approx 10 minutes I was then told the therapist had just emailed to say she was not going to be in work that day. This was very disappointing to say the least especially considering the very limited available appointments that were offered, I think it would be a good idea if there was a sign to say when the pool cannot be used due to exercise classes etc, and also if there could be more appointment times available as although the selection of treatments is very good, it is impossible to book in for any of them!||| More...

We were offered an excellent deal, the venue was easy to reach, impressive from the beginning. Staff were very friendly, rooms were good (do not have rm 1 if you have any mobility issues), food was good, the area offered a lot and there was a spa (not actually in the hotel) but we didn't use it. All 10 of us were impressed and would stay here or in a similar BW again. A few mentioned that a choice of pillow (most were firm) would have enhanced their stay. A very relaxing weekend. More...

Had a fantastic spa visit, superb massage and facial from Mandy. Only small thing that let it down was the pool area, though nice, clearly isn’t designed as a spa pool area, it lacks that level of calm and luxury you get elsewhere.

This hotel is in a lovely location well placed for the New Forest, Southampton and Portsmouth. Hotel building is full of character and the rooms are big and well equipped. The grounds are really spectacular and quite large, although didn’t do much exploring. Staff are a bit hit and miss ranging from very helpful and courteous to a little disinterested. restaurant experience was again hit and miss, too long a wait on one occasion but other times service was acceptable, the male restaurant manager was particularly helpful and attentive. All in all we enjoyed our 3 night stay which was very good value for money, we would consider revisiting this hotel. More...

Booked a 2 night stay about 6/8 weeks in advance and stayed last weekend on a DBB basis for one night and BB for second night. ||||about a week in advance the hotel emailed me asking about time for dinner on first night as wanted to get booking in system. Great sevice and attention to detail I think.||||On arrival the two ladies at reception were very helpful and welcomming. While the room was not yet ready due to early arrival they kindly explained about hotel, facities and what we may want to do while waiting for room. All in all a very good start.||||Had lunch in bar from bar menue and then went back to reception to gind the room was ready. Room was a stanard room which was very pleasent. A big double bed and bathroom with bath and shower over the bath.||||We explored the hotel gounds with the help and advise of staff and had a nice walk in gardens prior to going over to the pool and leisure club. Used the pol and sauna and stem rooms which were all nice and presented as we would all like.||||On retiring to room for the night we had a great sleep and not disturbed at all by any other hotel guests.||||For dinner we were seated straight away and given menues to choose meal from. The dining experience was good, though we think the person seating us was not the 'main restaurant' person as when he did sit persons at the next table he told them about the nightly specials which we never got told about.||||Breakfast next morning was a buffet facility and was adiuate for what it was. Though on both mornings we were aware that if you arrive at 'prime time' the reastaurant cant cope with demand and you may find you will need to wait a bit of time to get a table.||||Would we return.

Ourselves and four other couples have had a get-together for a weekend every year in October for about the last eight years, usually somewhere along the South Coast. I think Chilworth Manor is probably the best yet. We got a great all-inclusive deal and, although it was very reasonable, the service/food/rooms/setting were first class. In fact, in the spirit of balance, I'm really struggling to find anything to criticise. Just, perhaps, the music from an event on Saturday night was rather loud and went on to about 1am. More...

After a awful experience in another hotel we rang to see if any rooms were free . The receptionist couldn’t have been more helpful, she arranged rooms, printed off a walking route for me around the golf course , which meant i could get my normal morning exercise routine in, showed me the gym which is small but very well equipt with everything you could need , including weights . She was warm welcoming friendly. We couldn’t ask for more. Thank you it doesn’t sound like enough but when you have to work away from home a good hotel means a lot. The hotel is beautiful , the rooms are spacious , fantastically clean and exactly what you need when away from your family. I couldn’t recommend the hotel enough. More...

Stayed here at Easter with my husband on a Groupon 2 night DBB deal. The hotel was very nice, a little 'worn' in places but our room and the public areas were spotlessly clean. The room had everything we needed in it and the bed was comfy. Lovely log fire in the bar gave a very cosy feeling. Breakfast was good with everything replenished as needed. The pool and gym areas were clean and it was nice that at the time of our visit, no children were allowed in the pool which made our break even more relaxing. Dinner in the restaurant was not 5 star a la carte, but then we wasn't expecting it to be - however what we had was nice. Service in the hotel was good as was the wifi. Plenty of parking too. The hotel's grounds and gardens are quite extensive however the weather was not good enough for us to make full use of them. Short distance to Southampton and the New Forest. Will definitely stay here again when next in the area. More...

Stayed this weekend for 2 nights to celebrate wedding anniversary. Went with another couple as it was a friends birthday as well. ||We had such a relaxing time. The hotel is lovely, the room was basic but it was clean and comfortable and we had booked a discount deal so we were more than satisfied. ||We ate in the restaurant both nights and found the food lovely. I especially liked the stuffed chicken and my husband enjoyed the steak. I ordered the warm chocolate brownie for pudding and it came cold. But it was very quickly rectified with no fuss from the staff. ||The breakfast was gorgeous, really couldnt fault any of the food. ||Found the bar quite reasonable for a hotel, was expecting it to be more expensive than it was. ||The grounds were lovely, beautiful to sit and have a drink. The weather was very kind to us.||Short drive to the new forest meant we had a lovely day out on the Saturday. Then saturday afternoon i sat by the indoor pool with a magazine then enjoyed the steam room and sauna. ||Without doubt what made it for us was the staff!!!! It was incredibly busy all weekend and the staff never stop. They work so hard. Nothing is too much trouble. They work some long hours and yet still they are smiling and joking with us. ||Huge thank you to Terry on the bar. And Dave and Rob were both fantastic. They made our break away with their fab personalities! ||A beautiful touch was our hand written anniversary card in our room. And the cupcake for my friend on her birthday which they brought out with a candle singing happy birthday. ||A weekend we will remember. Thank you so much to everyone who made it so special. More...

Beautiful location. Great scenery. Friendly and helpful staff. Good for an overnight stay. Room clean & tidy. Would stay again. Hotel very busy and overcrowded in reception, but a function was going on. Gentleman at desk was very polite and helpful. Tricky to park, but eventually found one! (Possible due to function going on!) Would be worth checking if anything on before you stay. More...

We stayed over night the day prior to a cruise from Southampton. They do a special deal - over night stay, breakfast, 3 course dinner, park and transport to/from the cruise terminal. |The building looks impressive from the outside and has large grounds. It was used as the universities halls of residence at one point which is quite interesting. |The rooms are quite basic but have everything you need and we had an excellent nights sleep. Tea and coffee making facilities.|Nice swimming pool with steam room and sauna - unfortunately the jacuzzi was out of use when we were there. |Breakfast was good - full English and continental available. |The dinner was really good - chicken pie was lush. |I’d recommend if staying for a cruise.

Stayed one night while visiting friends in the area. Had no issues with the stay, nice modern room in the extension, clean with plenty of power points for devices. Hotel is in extensive attractive grounds but not that far from Southampton etc.Very impressive bar and communal rooms as well. Staff friendly and helpful. We could see the hotel is used a lot for business and other functions so not the most intimate of vibes. Best thing was the buffet breakfast good quality items well cooked. Did not eat dinner at the hotel found many good restaurants in the local area. Has lots of parking but always seemed full to capacity. More...

For some reason, this hotel doesn't seem to feature in a "Southampton" search, so if you're looking for a cruise and stay package, as we were, it could easily be overlooked. As it was, we heard about it through friends recommendations and took a chance and booked it. We were very pleased with our choice, and have booked again for our next cruise. The hotel is in lovely grounds, the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast and dinner were good, as was the basic room, and even though there was a wedding party there during our stay, they had breakfast in a private room so didn't impact on other guests in any way. No complaints at all. Taxi turned up bang on time and it was a very pleasant start to our holiday. More...

There was a small fan in the room which helped to drown out the sound of the delivery trucks (which began arriving around 5 am) but did little to help with the heat . This type of weather is unusual so not the hotel’s fault but there is no air con. I gave this property a better than fair rating as the estate’s history was interesting and the interior of the main building was quite nice. The grounds could be phenomenal but they need more care.

We bought a glass of prosecco each to enjoy afterwards as a treat for an extra charge. You can buy tea and coffee from machine for one pound a pop. The changing facilities were nice as were the pool, sauna and steam room but it was disappointing that the jacuzzi was not in action. It doesn't look like it's going to get fixed any time soon. We ordered afternoon tea and enjoyed that at the hotel. We were attended to very well by the staff but it seemed there were too many when we first entered the room which was quite overwhelming. The food itself was high quality, particularly the scones and cakes. The sandwiches consisted of tuna; ham, pickle and mustard; egg and some kind of green and cheese and pickle. The ham was the best. It would have been good if one of the waiters could have gone through what all the different components of the afternoon tea we're on its arrival since you don't get any choices and I always like to know what I'm eating. The cakes consisted of macaroons, cupcake, meringue, brownie and some kind of sponge. All delecious and well presented. I would definitely go again. More...

We stayed Sunday to Wednesday for a well earned break, booked DBB package and can honestly say I’ve never eaten so much! The food was delicious the restaurant staff were friendly & attentive (special mention to Robert & Tony) nothing was too much bother at any time, some of the comments on here are totally unjustified, if you had/have a problem with the food or anything else for that matter the staff were more than happy to help. Heard a guest complain she didn’t see the poached eggs.. it’s on the menu dear just ask & guess what, 5 mins later 2 perfectly poached eggs, it’s that easy. The general manager was always about speaking to guests was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information on the facilities, the hotel has such a warm & welcoming feel about it we were relaxed in no time. The grounds are beautiful(acres of conservation land & lake) to stroll around after dinner .... you’ll need it! We had connecting rooms for my daughter they were exceptionally clean & fresh, housekeeping ladies very polite & respectful. From the hotel we traveled to Portsmouth, the new forest & Southampton we didn’t really do much I was just relaxing so it was so nice to be in comfortable surroundings with great food & drink the added bonus we got was the pleasant staff. The only thing I wanted more of was time, should have booked for longer so yes, we will definitely be returning!|Thank you chilworth manor for a wonderful stay. More...

The hotel was outstanding, it's in one of the most beautiful parts of a beautiful country with the coast, Portsmouth is wonderful, and the New Forest right on your doorstep. The hotel grounds and the area around are lovely, there's a spectacular pond of Loi carp eager to be fed. The attention to detail inside and outside, from the food, the staff, the finish of the hotel, nothing is left unfinished.||The general manager is friendly and helpful and all the staff take their lead from him. ||I'd recommend anyone to stay there, we will be back soon to do more exploring.

Travelled with autistic child and Bob looked after us so well. He took the time to make sure that my son was ok every day of our stay. He made a potentially difficult stay very pleasurable. New places are often challenging for my son, but Bob went the extra mile to take the stress away for us. Staff in restaurant also lovely. Within the constraints of a large corporate set up, it is the special staff that set a hotel apart from their competitors. Thank you Chilworth Manor for a great stay...thank you Bob in particular.

Plenty of car parking spaces.I stopped on a standard room which was fine, not the best I've stayed in but certainly not the worst. The bed was comfortable enough but it was very hot and there were no thin sheets available so it was either a thick duvet or nothing. As the room didn't have aircon it wasn't the best night's sleep. To be fair this is probably only an issue two or three nights a year as the the weather was freakishly warm for the U.K.I stayed two nights and the menu in the dinning room was the same both nights which was disappointing. Breakfast wasn't great. The scrambled eggs were grey unappetising. It took an age for the staff to bring out items once they run out.The bar area is nice and there is plenty of outdoor seating. However, by 10pm this was covered in plates and glasses which attracted the local wasp and hornet population and didn't really make for a relaxed evening drink.Sadly I didn't get chance to go to the pool or spa so cannot comment.All in all it's a very nice hotel with great staff and I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed stopping here. I'll probably stop again when I next have to travel to Southampton. More...

We ate a delicious and ample afternoon tea on the terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds and went to try to walk it off through the fascinating conservation area which adjoins the hotel gardens. The hotel is a grand building, well maintained, and my room, a superior twin, had a small anteroom with a desk, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer and tourist information. The bathroom worked.
