We have stayed at Lainston House hotel before and we were not disappointed by our welcome and our superb room. we were offered an upgrade but when I toured the rooms with the helpful staff member I chose the original room as for this visit we preferred cosy and modern to large and four poster. My husband loved watching the TV over the bath. We were there for the Buble tribute act Valentines event in their atmospheric barn. they managed an excellent dinner but our romantic evening was sadly ruined by other guests at the table next to us who preferred to talk and guffaw loudly, make speeches and engage in general banter whilst the other tables were trying to listen to the solo singer. We left half way through and had an early night but I have sympathy for the hotel the other loud party also were guests. We have decided we will still keep this hotel on our favourites list but avoid booking and "event" with them again.
