The Swan Hotel is an 18th-century hotel located in the center of Alresford, just 15 minutes drive from Winchester. Bed was great, brilliant shower, room slightly cool on arrival but heated up instantly after adjusting the radiators. Good off road parking. Good menu and variety of ales in bar. Quiet having been busy earlier. Clearly popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Town looks lovely too - what I saw of it.
The Plow Itchen Abbas is a charming property with a riverside village setting, just 15 minutes’ drive from Winchester. This beautiful inn features a restaurant and bar. Very cheerful and helpful staff, excellent evening meal for ourselves and 2 guests. Comfortable room.
Set in a beautiful listed building, the 4-star Woolpack Inn has a creative restaurant and leafy beer garden. It sits in scenic Hampshire countryside, between Winchester and Basingstoke. Beautiful location. Comfortable rooms. Great breakfast included. Friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Great bar and restaurant on site. Close to Bombay Sapphire Distillery if you are visiting for the tour.
We visited New Alresford as we were going on the Watercress Line for the Christmas Illuminations experience. The town itself is small but beautiful and we enjoyed a little stroll around despite the fact that Covid restrictions are in place.
New Alresford is a small town with walks to the river and a traditional steam railway. So near to winchester with a good bus service. Relaxing, individual shops and a great place to relax. There is a good choice of restaurants and pubs. I would consider staying in New Alresford again and using public transport to get to winchester.
A lovely village which has plenty of character which is missing now from many villages. Full of friendly and likeable people. Watercress line Railway station is close to the centre of the village and provides a very enjoyable day out.
The riverside walk is wonderful and will lead you off into glorious countryside if you keep going. Good location to explore local sights like Hinton Ampner house, Chawton and the Jane Austin museum, and nearby Winchester. Good pubs and restaurants, all amenities but with all the charm, peace and quirkiness of a village. I stayed at the Swan Hotel and highly recommend it for comfort, service and value for money. You don’t need a car to stay in the area - there’s a great Stagecoach bus service, and there is so much good walking to do that it’s a perfect place to ditch the car and get out to explore.
It was an beautiful town with tea rooms and coffee shop with really good food and drinks. My favourite tea room was Tiffin on West Street. There’s a gym at Perins school called Evolution Health and fitness and the number 64 bus runs Every 30 minutes to Winchester. The Bell Inn is a very good pub to stay and the food is excellent .Its a few minutes walk to the Watercress Line Mid Hants Railway ,well worth a visit.
Very pretty little town. We chose to stay in Alresford as we had booked a wonderful evening on the Watercress 'fine dining' steam train, staying at the Swan Hotel. All in all an extremely pleasant break.
