My five night stay at St Mary's last week was a pleasure. I had booked the single room 'Austen' while attending a floristry course with the talented Jay Archer in nearby Herriard. I was made to feel really welcome, and even had a hot water bottle made for me on a couple of really cold evenings, and the ice scraped...

Alton is a charming town, and this B & B was a great base for visiting the area. It is a quick walk to the town center, and you can also walk to the Hane Austen house museum and Chawton house. It doesn't take long to get to several stately homes or the countryside. There is a lovely terrace outside...

We stayed here for one night, just prior to Christmas. Communication with Joan before our stay was excellent and she was very accommodating with our arrival time. We stayed in the family suite in the garden and it was perfect for our needs (two adults and two children, aged 9 and 12). The room was spotless and finished to a...

This is one of those places that you remember because your hosts are so great. Joan and Jack run a first rate B&B offering great accomodation, terrific food and local knowledge that helps you enjoy what the area has to offer. If you are a 'Jane' fan it is the perfect place to base yourself! Would love to come back...

St.Mary's Hall, a converted meeting hall of the Catholic church, was a most comfortable retreat after a drive on the narrow, winding lanes leading from Highclere. Host Joan Mossop welcomed us with a restorative cup of tea in the little light-filled parlor adjacent to our rooms. The b an b is lovely, both inside and outside in the beautiful garden....

Wow! what a place. Clean, comfy quiet and Joan looks after you real good. We only stayed one night but will make it longer next time. Breakfast, full english all round, was fantastic. You will not find better in Alton or surrounding area.

Booked St Mary's Hall on the strength of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. My first engagement with Joan, the landlady, set the tone which was friendly, welcoming and courteous from first to last. My wife and I stayed in the garden room which was warm, cosy and immaculately clean. Joan and partner Jack keep the rest...
