This was our 5th visit and it was lovely. The food is amazing and we really enjoyed the 7 course tasting menu with accompanying wine. They cater for gluten intolerant people without any fuss which I appreciate. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. All in all another wonderful visit. We are planning the next one already!

Fabulous venue especially for a Wedding, 21 family and friends met for Canapés, drinks and delicious Dinner before my Daughters Wedding on the 26th January. The Essebourne Team made sure the event ran so seamlessly, they dealt with the timings, the ceremony was beautiful followed by more delicious Canapés served at the Champagne Reception, followed another delicious Dinner catering for all tastes. They had raised the bar for the buffet later in the evening, a great variety of food. The food throughout the week end was exceptional. The staff helpful, friendly and professional, nothing was too much trouble. A beautiful romantic venue, thank you Team Essebourne Manor, for helping to make my Daughter and new Son-in-Laws Wedding perfect in every way. More...

Absolutely heavenly food & I am picky!! Wonderful canapes before dinner - the cucumber gaspacho is divine- & had the pork with Smokey mash two nights on the trot it was sooo goood. Gorgeous petit fours, wobbly coffee & delicious smoked haddock & poached egg for breakfast. Friendly staff , clean rooms with air con provided welcome relief from the recent heat wave. Small 'complaints' are that they don't do cocktails here though they have the ingredients for them & one member of staff a bit abrupt when we were exploring due to a bit if a lack if signage/welcome 'tour'. Delightful little hideaway though & enjoyed the games in the garden - croquet, rabble tennis etc. More...

Beautiful setting, beautiful hotel. Friendly and attentive staff. And one of the best meals I have ever had! The only reason i held back the 5th star was because the rooms could do with a little bit of an update. And the internet is the slowest I have used in a long while! I will be staying here again though! More...

We went for afternoon tea (using a voucher we had been given). Lovely place and the food was delicious, and nice to be given a choice of where to sit (outside, the bar, the lounge). Only complaint is that when we got home I glanced at the details of what was included in our voucher and saw that we should have had a glass of bubbly. We weren’t offered this. I should have checked beforehand and asked. More...

I celebrated my 70th birthday here on the 31st March. It was a surprise dinner party arranged by my husband. I can't praise the staff at the hotel enough from the start to the finish all went like clockwork. The food was amazing the elegant, old fashioned service just made everything go so well. My sister has some mobility issues and they were able to cater for her and her husband's needs admirably. The garden room they were allocated was superb. My sister said it didn't make her feel like an invalid just a beautiful 5 star room.
THANKYOU Esseborne Manor.

Loved every minute we were there, the home made warm scones, clotted craem & jam just melted in our mouths.

Came here on a Groupon voucher. Started with home made scones (amazing! ), followed later by the 7 course taster menu (even more amazing! ) then a night in a beautiful room with home made shortbread (fabulous!) finished off by a cooked breakfast (REALLY good!!)... We should have then had a round of golf, but couldn't due to previous injuries. Decided instead to take the short journey to the Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery (well worth a visit!). The hotel is stunning, the staff friendly and welcoming and the bar prices reasonable. Will definitely come back again � More...

A lovely hotel and very friendly staff. Taster menu was very tasty. Also ask for a room with a Spa Bath as well worth paying the extra for! Will be going back �

A very good hotel in lovely grounds, with an excellent restaurant. Outstanding value, we stayed in a very good room with spa bath, and had their 7 course tasting menu, and a great breakfast. Add in a complementary round of golf at the Hampshire Golf Club, and the afternoon tea which we couldn't manage, an a bill for £155 for 2!!!! The staff are also very friendly and helpful. We will return More...

David Greensmith is not not only a technically brilliant photographer but a creative mind also - always resulting in quality and beautiful imagery. I have styled for Dave on a number of occassions and he is very professional and a delight to work with. He is full of creative ideas and suggestions on photoshoots, as well as clearly outlining what the desired brief is and wont stop until his images are spot on. His work is very versatile and I would rely 100% on Dave to provide superb photos for any occasion. More...
