The hotel – which is a well-known meetings venue – is based in the Hampshire countryside, roughly equidistant from Portsmouth and Southampton, on the edge of the beautiful South Downs National Park. It is a traditional, Grade I-listed country manor, offering comfortable accommodation, a restaurant and bar serving local food, and a friendly reception.
Rooms at the New Place Hotel are offered in Standard Double, Standard Twin, and Single format. Each one is well-equipped for business and leisure guests: contemporary décor is accompanied by complimentary wireless internet, parking, and ample space for work and leisure. In addition, the hotel hosts a gym, pool, croquet lawn, and a cricket pitch on its grounds, giving active guests plenty of opportunities to keep busy.
The hotel has an enviable location near Portsmouth, Southampton, the historic city of Winchester, and the South Downs, making it ideal for tourism in the region. The closest railway station is in Botley, three miles away, which gives access to Eastleigh – and therefore Southampton and its airport – and Portsmouth. It is also accessible from the M27 motorway.
33 high-tech, customisable meeting rooms and events spaces also make the hotel the perfect venue for MICE business, with spaces primarily aimed at residential training for blue chip organisations, as well as corporate events, team building, dinners, and executive team meetings. These events spaces are large enough to accommodate a wide range of needs, but also private and exclusive, so that individual attention can be paid to each customer. As a result, the hotel has plenty of experience with corporate travellers, and guests staying for one or two nights on business are well catered for.
In addition, New Place Hotel boasts 32 acres of landscaped gardens, making it an excellent venue for lavish private weddings, banquets and other functions.
