Where to stay


Solent Hotel & Spa

Our flagship south coast hotel has everything you can expect from a Daniel Thwaites Spa Hotel. Along with a warm welcome, you’ll be assured a comfy night’s sleep in one of our rooms. Ranging from our Signature Room to our Premier Suite, all feature indulgent beds, a selection of pillows, tea and coffee facilities, a TV and White Company Toiletries.

Our flagship hotel is also home to our award winning spa. The perfect destination for those who would like to unwind in our jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, swim a few lengths in the pool, enjoy a pamper with a spa treatment, or relax in our secluded hot tub on the meadow. We’re proud to use Caudalie products throughout our spa treatments for added luxury. We also have a good sized gym for guests wanting to keep their fitness up.

The Lodge at Solent

Located next door to our spa hotel, the Lodge at Solent offers a more contemporary and minimalistic setting for you to rest in. All rooms feature a walk in shower and subtle design touches to make you feel at ease. Perfect for a stopover, or a family week away. Our spa hotel facilities are also available for an additional cost.

Where to eat


The Terrace Restaurant & Bar

At the heart of our spa hotel is the Terrace Restaurant & Bar. Our AA Rosette restaurant serves British cuisine with a Mediterranean influence using the finest local ingredients, including a delicious octopus dish and a spiced monkfish creation to write home about. All within an atmosphere designed to complement the dishes.

Meadow Bar & Grill

During the summer months don’t miss our Meadow Bar & Grill. The perfect spot to enjoy summer classics from cocktails to bbq favourites, our meadow whisks you away to somewhere else.
