“Customer is a cash cow.”
This hotel is all like the TV series: Keeping up appearances.
It looks quite good from the outside and the room price seems reasonable, but then it starts:
once they got you in, the milking of the cow can begin.
This starts with 4 euro per night for parking .....at a hotel not in the mid's of a vast metropolis, but in a small village with ample space around.
Then dinner: it's a pretty good restaurant, I give them that, and just below 30 euro for a 3 course dinner would be a fair price indeed if they would not charge 3,50 for a bit of bread , 2,50 for the smallest (2 cl) bottle of water in the world, and 20 euro for a half a liter carafe of house wine.
Finally the room. This was situated under the pitched roof with only two skylights high above your head. There's a warning on the room door to close these when you leave, otherwise it might rain in your bed. Come on guys, this is borderline okay for a student dorm or a place for children to play but it's not a serious hotel room, this is an insult. More so because the hotel was 3/4 empty. And still they put us high up this ridiculous attic ! Staff is friendly and professional, by the way, but sure as hell I won't come back.
Owner Response of Hampshire Hotel - Jan van Scorel
Thank you for staying with us and thank you for your review on Tripadvisor.
We regret that you did not like your room, you have reserved a Cosy room. This room type is our smallest room type, located on the top floor. If you prefer to have more space and even a balcony, I would recommend you to book a Charme or Deluxe room on your next stay. There is always the possibility to upgrade your room, based on availability during your stay. Thank you for your compliments regarding the food and service in our restaurant. Your comment regarding the price of the drinks are delivered to our Restaurant Manager.
Again, I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your experience.
With kind regards,
Assistant Sales & Marketing Manager
