Review: Tylney Hall Hotel, Hampshire

OG Elite hotels

Sophie Ritchie takes a mangle from a chaotic gait of city life and heads to Hampshire for a weekend stay during a pretentious Tylney Hall Hotel…

At a finish of a circuitous Red Wood tree-lined opening awaits an superb instance of architectural beauty. An considerable Victorian epoch mansion, Tylney Hall is a vast, sprawling hotel that emulates both a demeanour and feel of an primitive palace. From a effervescent fountain within a yard to a royal looking windows, it’s a building that aims to stir even as we proceed a entrance.

To my delight, it’s usually as desirable on a inside as it is on a out. A Grade II listed building, Tylney Hall retains a clarity of peace – even when a accepting area is bustling with a attainment of new guests. Visitors are immediately brought behind to an age that emphasised magnificence and loftiness – from a roof walnut panelling to a considerable staircase that leads us to a available room.  Staff are friendly, courteous and immediately welcoming – and notwithstanding Tylney’s size, it feels like you’ve stepped inside someone’s home.

Tylney Hall

No typical hotel, Tylney Hall has a abounding and charming history. Not usually has it acted as both a propagandize and hospital, a estate has even survived demolition. After once descending into a grasp of William Pole-Long-Wellesley, after 5th Earl of Mornington, a rather forward homeowner indeed demolished a strange building. He did so quite to shun a terms of a Trust and sell a station joist on a site (which during a time was banned if trees were within steer of a house). Well, that’s one approach to find a loophole.

The room

TH Bedroom 1v2 (Large) Nowadays, a building stays particularly protected. Considered a skill of considerable architectural and chronological interest, Tylney Hall boasts 112 bedrooms with 9 styles to select from – all flashy in gripping with a hotel’s grand style.

We found ourselves in a comfort of a Mansion Junior Suite. Regal and refined, it was both atmospheric and gentle – and a ideal place to tell from a bustling week beforehand. Expect a room that places importance primitive oppulance rather than contemporary vital – consider immeasurable windows braggadocio truly superb views of a Hampshire skyline, high ceilings and pretentious duration pieces of furniture.

All bedrooms in a hotel also come filled with little extras – from a hairdryer and trouser press to complimentary Molton Brown oppulance toiletries and towelling bathrooms. It’s clearly a room that’s meant to be enjoyed – most like a rest of a nation hotel.

The food


Main dishes are served in The Oak Room – a gorgeously flashy space that takes a name from a abounding ash panelling that fills it. At breakfast and lunch, guest can suffer untried sights of a surrounding garden and lawns – before a room transforms during dinnertime for a some-more intimate, grand piano-accompanied affair.

The restaurant’s warranted itself a repute for portion sparkling cuisine with a clearly British turn – and is now seen a must-try for foodies of a South East. Executive Head Chef Michael Lloyd assimilated a group in 2016 – bringing with him a 3 AA Rosette credentials to raise a hotel’s dining experience.

With a menu packed with British complicated cuisine, guest can select from seasonal specialities and signature dishes – all interconnected with a delicately selected booze list. We opt for a ethereal starter of cold cut poached salmon with cucumber, crème fraiche, avruga caviar, potato and salad cream – afterwards tuck into a stuffing categorical of vessel boiled strap of mill bass.  Substantial and sumptuous, a dishes were presented well, generally a appetiser.

Much like a room however, it was a additional courtesy to fact that done a durability sense – from a accessible and knowledgable waiter to a beautiful piano melodies that accompanied a feast.

What to do


If continue permits, an try of Tylney Hall’s gardens is a must. Guests can ramble down to a landscaped ponds to feed a hotel’s fervent ducks, or wander by a Italian gardens during a resting pace. The drift make a smashing environment for afternoon walks – with copiousness of paths and sections to explore.

For those seeking a small some-more relaxation, squeeze a dress and conduct down to a hotel’s spa, pool and sauna. From perusing piles of magazines to lazing on loll chairs, guest can soak, float and discuss a day divided to their heart’s content.

Thoroughly content, we reluctantly container a bags a subsequent morning for a lapse to a bustling city. If you’re seeking a oppulance shun from complicated life, this is positively a place to do it. Tranquil, normal and full of attract – this nation breakwater creates a ideal weekend mangle from reality.
