Convenient location, dedicated staff
The hotel is a historic listed property, so it comes with all the issues of an old property that cannot be fixed (low water pressure, creaky floors). But the dedicated 5 star staff balances those issues out. The location is in the city center, so it is near to many restaurants and pubs - but be prepared for some noise from outside the hotel from customers exiting the pubs (or ask for a quiet room when checking in). Enjoy the cooked to order breakfasts in the restaurant.

Old and tired
This is an old hotel that needs some updating and renovation. The bed was comfortable, but the room was warm even in March. Without air conditioning it should be uncomfortable from May through September, even in the UK. The wifi was laughable, which would have been fine except that I could not connect to my iPhone hotspot inside the hotel. I am not sure what was going on, but it was impossible. The water pressure in the shower was insufficient and the hot water temperature in the sink never got warm.

Basingstoke revisit
Reception, bar staff, waiters and house staff all very polite and friendly. A pleasant stay. Reception, lounge and restaurant very pleasant and modern. However, room was dated and in need of upgrading and redecorating. Mattress sagged and needs replacing. Taps in bathroom could not close completely, therefore ran all the time and bathroom needed upgrading. Nice food on menue and most of what we had was very good. However, chef had two attempts at cooking a steak to medium rare, and failed both times. The star of our stay was Niall, fussed over us and made us feel very special. Dealt with any little issues very professionally and was a delight. Our only big issue was being charged a minimum of five pounds to post a phone charger we accidentally left behind.
