Marwell Hotel looks different to any hotel you've visited in the UK. And that difference is reflected in the service, the atmosphere and the surroundings - all of them out of the ordinary.

The 68 bedrooms are split between four lodges, connected by open, airy corridors from which you can admire the surrounding woodlands.

Each of the rooms has an en-suite bathroom, wireless internet connection and digital freeview TV. Choose from standard or superior single, double or family rooms (which can accommodate a family of four - consisting of 2 adults and 2 children under 12).

Food is very important at Marwell Hotel. Great care is taken to make sure that only the very best ingredients that the local environment has to offer are used and there are plenty of options to satisfy every palate. The lounge and bar offers seasonal informal fare, and the Dining Room allows guests to enjoy high standards of food and drink at very competitive prices. There is a great selection of hot and cold dishes, available from the comfort of your bedroom too!
