"Breakfast choice was good and service in the dining room swift. Room was pleasant. Parking plenty even when hotel full. Swimming pool OK, steam room good (when on, one morning no steam), sauna luke warm both mornings. Odd member of staff indifferent to guests, most very friendly and appeared willing to go the extra mile to help staff."

Set in 176 acres of Hampshire parkland, the 4-star, family-run Macdonald Botley Park Hotel in Southampton is a country-style property with a spa, award-winning restaurant and plenty of sports facilities.

Exploring the local area from Botley Park is easy -- the hotel is around 25 minutes’ drive from Southampton and Portsmouth, which both offer ferry services to nearby Isle of Wight and the New Forest National Park is a 25-minute drive away. But the hotel is a destination in itself: there’s a spa offering a selection of treatments (charges apply), as well as a steam room, indoor pool and sauna. There’s a tennis court, squash court and gym, plus guests can relax in the property’s landscaped gardens, or walk in the surrounding woodland.

The hotel’s main restaurant, Winchester Restaurant, is a highlight. It holds an AA Rosette, and serves gourmet British cuisine in elegant surroundings -- look for dishes such as line-caught sea bass with creamed baby leeks and potted shrimp, or pot-roasted shank of lamb with a smoked garlic and burgundy jus. Breakfast is also served here. The more casual Swing and Divot offers salads, sandwiches, steaks and burgers, while The Gallery Bar is the place for cocktails and afternoon tea.

There are 130 traditionally furnished rooms, all offering satellite TV and free WiFi. Feature Rooms and Suites have a more sumptuous design and offer more space, sleeping up to 2 adults and 2 children, and most have views of the landscaped gardens below.

Nice location in countryside. Worth driving the 20 mins into Southampton for this hotel. Toiletries in room lovely due to it being an Elemis Spa Hotel.

Fair price and location however bathroom had water damaged bath panel that should have been replaced long ago setting a poor impression, I found the hotel needs updating in parts. Bed was large king size and exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast could have been better with buffet of only a few items (only fried eggs, no mushrooms, black pudding and sausages undercooked. Coffee was also poor tasted very bitter.

Wrong room had been booked. Hotel had no atmosphere. Food in Sports Bar very average. Cost of wine per glass ridiculous e.g. £10 for a glass of Malbec.

Didn't eat the cooked breakfast as either not food left or seriously overcooked. Quite a few complaints from other guests about the quality too
