A bit more info:

The hotel is in a very quiet location with lovely grounds (3 acres) and safe parking.

The bedrooms are individual and comfortable. Three have four poster beds. Most are large and over half have king size beds with Jacuzzi baths and a separate shower enclosure in the en-suite. 

The food is excellent (it’s a 2 rosette restaurant) and the staff friendly and helpful. It is a family run hotel, with great reviews on Trip Advisor. Only downsides - the building is a little ‘tired’ and breakfast is a bit limited in the buffet area but there is a good choice for the main course, which is cooked to order. Bar prices are reasonable and there is free Wi-Fi. The hotel was used by the cast of Downton Abbey when filming at the nearby Highclere Castle, where the series was set.

The scones on arrival are served warm with a good helping of jam and clotted cream and are some of the best I've ever eaten!
The 7 course tasting menu is shown at £55 a head on the hotel website but included in the £318 weekend fee.

The optional daytime activity on the Saturday is a convoy to Beaulieu, where any of our party arriving in a Lotus will be parked in front of the Arena. Sunday gives the choice of Brooklands Museum, where Club Lotus is there for the Classic Spring Breakfast, or a walk somewhere in the lovely countryside around Hurstborne Tarrant. The Beaulieu and Brooklands visits are at a small additional cost.
