An ideal base for business and leisure guests. Situated in the heart of alton, you do not need a taxi or bus to access the towns local facilities. Our guests include many people of sense and sensibility - that is to say, devotees of jane austen, who make their pilgrimage to her cottage in the chawton area of alton during their stay with us. The cottage now is a popular tourist attraction and museum dedicated to jane's life and work. Sense and sensibility and pride and prejudice were written here.
