Four Seasons Hampshire is, in our opinion, one of the best luxury hotels in the English countryside. Spoiler alert! To get the best deal, special offer or discount at a Four Seasons hotel, book via our luxury travel concierge.
Why Four Seasons?
Oh my goodness, there are many, many reasons to book hotels that are part of the Four Seasons brand. Of course, room rates are expensive when compared to more middle-of-the-road hotels. Still, the Four Seasons beats almost every other hotel chain in ambiance, immaculate communal areas, incredible service, and gorgeous rooms. It really is worth paying the extra for. Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are reliably excellent, and they are consistently one of your best hotel options in any city or resort.
We share ten tips that will help you squeeze the most value out of your next Four Seasons hotel stay and get you the deal or discount you are looking for.
1. Why Stay At Four Seasons Hampshire?
Four Seasons Hampshire is, in our opinion, the very best country house hotel in England if you have children. There’s a kids’ club, a kid’s pool (with slides, sprayers, buckets sloshing water on their heads, etc.), and a climbing frame and play park area. There’s also horse riding and zip-lining on-site, as well as all sorts of seasonal activities for children. That’s not to say that the hotel isn’t great for adults, too. There’s a great bar and restaurant, magnificent views, a running route, clay pigeon shooting, and so much more. This hotel really offers an all-around resort. It ticks all the boxes for everyone, and you can read our full review of Four Seasons Hampshire to find out more.
Of course, there is no Four Seasons rewards program, but if you are a regular guest of the Four Seasons or even want to try this iconic brand for the first time, you can take advantage of loyalty style benefits at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our concierge.
2. How To Get Free Benefits
You can take advantage of free loyalty style benefits from your very first stay at Four Seasons hotels and resorts by merely booking with a luxury travel agent like our concierge. It really is that easy, and the rates you pay will be the same as those on the Four Seasons website.
And Four Seasons is not alone in this luxury offering. Most luxury hotels have luxury travel agent loyalty programs that give their clients free benefits at no extra cost as long as they book with the right partner agent. These luxury hotel brands include Hilton’s Waldorf Astoria, Hyatt, Andaz, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, InterContinental, and more.
If you want loyalty-style VIP benefits without paying more, it is worth contacting us for a free, no-obligation quote to see what you are missing. There is no cost associated with becoming a client of our concierge.
3. Check The Four Seasons Website For Special Offers
Check out the unique special offers pages for Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire. Each individual hotel has a separate page that offers their discounts and the dates that the discounts are relevant to time your holiday accordingly.
Some of the best discounts are the three nights for the price of two or the four nights for the price of three discount. Both of these discounts tend to be available outside the high season at some Four Seasons hotels, and they can save you a serious amount of money. Here is the relevant discount page:
If you are very sure of your dates, you can sometimes take advantage of advance purchase discounted rates. You must be sure of your dates because once you have booked in, there are no refunds on advance purchase rates, so if you can’t make your stay, you won’t get your money back!
Once you have found the offer you want, book via a luxury travel agent like our concierge for extra free benefits at your already discounted rate.
4. Book Early
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out in the high season, which means that they don’t need to discount their rooms during these popular periods. Outside of the high season, it is possible to get discounts, and these discounts can be found on the Four Seasons website within each individual hotel’s mini-site under “offers.”
Booking in advance will not always get you a discount, but it will stop you from paying over the odds because you can book into the room you want.
5. Change Your Holiday Dates
If you can, re-arrange your dates to target your preferred Four Seasons hotels when they are cheapest and offer the best discounts. One of the most expensive Four Seasons hotels in the world is also one of the cheapest just before it closes for the winter and just before it opens in the summer. The hotel in question is the Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat. I have already detailed how to book a Four Seasons hotel at the cheapest rate and at the Grand Hotel Du Cap Ferrat, the discounted low season rate is perhaps discounted by as much as 70 or 80% from their high season rate. The dates you need to be looking at for the biggest discount are at the end of March and the start of April and at the end of October and the start of November.
In Hampshire, Sundays and Midweek in the winter (January, February, and March) tend to have the best discounts and special offers.
5. Look Out For New Properties
Brilliant new Four Seasons are opening all the time. The new Four Seasons in Napa is an incredible property and offers a great soft opening discount. Expect opening discounts to encourage you to book at new Four Seasons hotels.
6. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say it out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a bog-standard resort. Do one night at Four Seasons Hampshire and take advantage of our early check-in / late check-out rather than spending two nights somewhere less exciting.
7. Pick The Cheapest Properties
It doesn’t matter how luxurious the Four Seasons brand is. Some parts of the world are cheaper than others. The Four Seasons Casablanca or Marrakech in Morocco will always be cheaper than the Four Seasons Geneva in Switzerland, whatever time of year you decide to visit. The cost of land and staff is not comparable between these two countries, so you can get a stay of the same caliber of Four Seasons hotel cheaper by choosing a Four Seasons hotel in a less expensive country. We have outlined the cheapest Four Seasons hotels in the world to help you choose where to stay. This is not a discount; this is simply using common sense to book your vacation in a cheaper area of the world.
8. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts, but these codes are not widely available to the general public. Besides, the discount may not be as good as our concierge’s free benefits. We suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the full picture before booking.
9. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
10. Stay On Sunday night
Historically, at Four Seasons Hampshire, Sunday nights can be cheaper, particularly in the winter months. The hotel is usually packed on Friday and Saturday nights, but Sunday is when everyone goes home, so this is when you can sometimes pick up a great special offer or discount. This hotel also sometimes offers 3 for the price of 2 and 4 for the price of 3 midweek offers, so, again, these are worth looking out for.
