Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Audleys Wood Hotel is a Victorian hunting lodge tucked away in the Hampshire countryside, at the end of a long, sweeping driveway.

Built around 1880, this Neo Gothic-style mansion is secluded within woodland, yet is just an 8-minute drive from Basingstoke town centre. Here you can visit Basing House and the Haymarket Theatre. Jane Austen's House Museum is a 20-minute drive from the hotel, and Grange Park Opera and Highclere Castle -- a filming location for Downton Abbey -- take 30 minutes by car. Stonehenge and Winchester Cathedral -- "one of southern England's most awe-inspiring buildings" (Lonely Planet) -- take 45 minutes, as do Southampton and Reading. Portsmouth is a 50-minute drive away.

The hotel's Simonds Room restaurant boasts two AA Rosettes and oak panelling said to be from Tewkesbury Abbey, and it is re-opening on 13 February, 2016. There is also the "contemporary" (The AA) Conservatory Restaurant which has views across the gardens. The lounge has a real log fire and ornate wood panelling, and serves traditional afternoon tea.

The hotel has 72 bedrooms, including Classic, Executive and Deluxe rooms, and there are two Suites with 4-poster beds. Wi-Fi is free, and a current copy of The Daily Telegraph is always kept in the lounge, in memory of the great statesmen and journalists who once visited Audleys Wood.

Only disappointment was the WiFi which dropped out occasionally. I understand efforts are being made to improve the service.
