The room was basic although the wood work had seen better days, dusty in the corners , windows fogged .The bathroom was tired looking , no lid to the toilet just a seat! it took a good few attempts for it to flush, bath tap loose , both gel dispensers empty , tissue box hanging off the wall and the shower curtain smelt damp! We went to the bar to report the faults and asked to move rooms but were told that the hotel was full , the young chap did however bring us a gel for the dispenser.There is no sound proofing between the rooms as we could hear everything that happened in the room next door. Wifi was bit hit and miss even the staff said that.
The restaraunt served a nice selection of food and the staff were lovely , polite and helpful. Breakfast was cereals, croissants, yoghurt which was ok you can upgrade to a cooked breakfast for £4.95.
We reported the faults to the hotel manager as we left with her response of " I will get them logged " not a sorry for your inconvenience etc.
- 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
