Norton Park - A QHotel
Travel Blogs from Sutton Scotney
After a 5 hour journey from Manchester to Winchester I'm definitely feeling on top of this world! The car ride was far from boring, me Kerry and Zoe in her new car, Lola was just one big 'before party' in the car - club tropicana and mysterious girl really does put you in the fabulous holiday mood! During it all, I have also discovered that taking …
... selected some biscuits that looked graham cracker liked but turned out more like Melba toast! Ugh. Not good s’more quality. We had a backup though. We got some biscuits that were somewhere between a digestive and a shortbread but had a layer of chocolate on one side. As there were no Hersey chocolate bars to be found anywhere, we also got the thinnest Lyndt chocolate bar we could find but ...

... this next big trip alone once again. However with the opportunity to see Dracula's castle my friend Cat was easily swayed into joining me :).
So, I've been checking out the guide books for Romania today mainly, but also planning ideas for what to do in Budapest and Istanbul as we will have 2/3 days there at the start and end of the trip. I think I am going to have to set aside a day for each ...
... in need of renovation. It is clean enough but very tired.
We take ourselves off back to Burghclere to see the Sandham Memorial Chapel a National Trust property. This is a Grade 1 listed 1920s chapel with murals painted by Stanley Spencer inspired by his time as a medical orderly. It is a very small place but very ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Norton Park - A QHotel Sutton Scotney
Major Building Site
Had to risk life and limb walking through corridor filled with dust power cables, dust sheets and flying bits of bathroom to get to our room when we arrived. There are renovations going on in areas of the hotel that are still open. Constant drilling and dust. Signage is poor and corridors filled with bed bases being stored.
The pool is open but areas are cordoned off. Temporary changing facilities consist of a bedroom with a few lockers. There were no towels and no staff.
We were disturbed by fire alarm at 8am.......all in all an appauling experience!!!
Well... my review may be somewhat different to others, as i never actually got to stay at the hotel.
Booked a luxury weekend break for my husbands birthday. The bubbly was lovely, it was the only thing that the website promised that came up to expectations. The room was very small and there is no air conditioning. The bathroom is also very small and although the shower was great, it got so hot and stuffy in this tiny space you soon forgot you had had a shower.
We have recently returned from a short stay at the Norton Park Hotel. We stayed for one night. To say that we were disappointed would be an understatement. We already knew about the building works but there were lots more disappointments and frustrations.
My husband and Ihave recently spent a weekend at this lovely hotel. Although the hotel is going through a major refurbishment, it does not detract from it at all.
I stayed here for one night with my Husband. We were in the Manor House which was seperate to the main hotel but it was nice to be away from the busyness of the restaurant and bar, very quiet. Room was very spacious and clean. The leisure facilities are lovely and the food was nice too. I would recommend this hotel and would love to stay again in the future.
For the £95 price tag, 4* rating and impressive website images showing the manor and rooms filled with antique furniture - my wife & I were looking forward to an anniversary weekend break.
Dear-for not much
stayed here on a sunday evening-late booking but even then £90 seemed a bit steep, but hey, give it a try i thought.
Location and parking excellent, but then into a modern design with rooms that really are basis-certainly with no trappings of any luxury.
Seems aimed at the business user-plenty of notices about internet access etc.
Shower-very weak and certainly not a 'power shower'.
Go into main building for breakfast and upstairs into a very bland, uninspiring room which has no features at all.
Breakfast ok-can't go too wrong with bacon and eggs can they!.
All in all, too expensive, no character or charm in the rooms and plainly thinking it is something it is not. Go to Ttravelodge.
Worst Hotel Ever
Hotel lovely location but that was the only thing that was nice about it. The food was terrible, service evern worse. The room was not cleaned, double bed was tiny and the shower only dribbled water.
When we left there was a queue of people complaining, 4 stars thats a joke wouldn't even give it one, better to stay in the travel lodge at the bottom of the road, at least you know what you get.
Don't waste you money
