Beautifully set in the countryside on the edge of Basingstoke.
Black hairs in the plug hole. Pulled them and OMG I felt sick with the amount that came up.
Waitress service; only takes your order and then your given an alarm. When it buzzes you go up and collect your food. I ordered Carvery - meat dry apart from the gammon which was lovely but and meal warm not hot. My friends carvery was the same and she had different meat.
Wifi unable to connect. Even the bar man said that we would be lucky! Says it all hey. Even our IT bobs couldn't get connected.
We arrived back in Tim and just before last orders only to find the place in darkness. Annoyed as the party we were at went on till 1230am but we thought we come back and support the pub. Luckily we had a bottle in the room to share with 7 people.
Breakfast is only continental and if you require a cooked breakfast you have to pay more. Breakfast is served between 8 - 930am, however they serve breakfast to the the general public for longer....
Overall the bed was comfortable and we had a goodnight sleep, they just need to brush and sparkle up a little.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hidden away in the quiet village of Oakley, this handsome Hampshire lodge provides some of the most welcoming budget accommodation in Basingstoke. It's just off the M3, and a few minutes from town - but feels like it's a world away, with picturesque countryside on the doorstep and attractive thatched houses nestling around a duck pond in the centre of the village.There's a wealth of conference venues nearby, such as Oakley Hall and the Ark Centre, which makes the 22-bedroom lodge a comfy and convenient base for business as well as pleasure. Either way, you can round off your stay with a meal and a tipple or two at the Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery on site. As for things to see and do in the local area, you'll be spoilt for choice. If you love country walks head down to award-winning Eastrop Park, which is full of scenic trails. Or you could explore the remains of Basing House, once the largest private residence in England. Plus you might like to catch a show at The Anvil Concert Hall or simply take a relaxing stroll down Basingstoke Canal. ... more less
