Booked as a one night break. Made to feel very welcome. Think we were upgraded as room was superb. Didn't eat a main meal but breakfast was good although only continental style, plenty of it. Would definitely stay again.

My girl and I decided to fly over with my son Ægir to surprise my family in the New Forest and, after my in-laws had stayed at the Boathouse a couple of years ago, we decided to book it up for 4 nights over Christmas. We stayed on the top floor in room 10 with wonderful views out to the... More

Stayed for 2 nights, one at each end of cruise.. Couldn't fault it and very pleased with my choice( chose it from reading reviews on Trip etc.. ). It's a small personal hotel with a friendly welcome and staff were very obliging.. Lovely rooms, spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable, excellent bed linen and towels. Great bathrooms with huge walk in... More

We stumbled across this hotel while on holiday and walking around Hythe. It was too busy on the Sunday so booked a table for 7 for Friday lunch. The restaurant is light and comfortable with good views of the marina. The menu is not packed with choice, but there is enough items to satisfy most tastes, with prices about right... More

We happened upon this restaurant during a day visit to Hythe and booked dinner for the evening. We were not disappointed. Vegetarian meals seem to be a challenge for so many restaurants but not so here. Although only one main meal was listed we were told that the chef would willingly provide alternatives. As it was the vegetarian option turned... More

A really lovely small hotel with gorgeous views of Hythe Marina Village and across to the Solent. Room was large, exceptionally clean, comfy and warm. Staff extended a great welcome and I cannot fault the service for the whole time we stayed. The hotel was quiet at night but good atmosphere in the restaurant over dinner. Dinner was excellent but...

This is a very friendly place that we visit occasionally. Menu is not huge but adequately varied and together with the 2 and 3 course specials offers a varied and very enjoyable meal. Comfortable seating too which really helps. Best to book. As it is a compact hotel there is some compromise in the space sense between the restaurant and... More

On arrival we had to check in at the public bar, we were greeted rather brusquely and shown to our room in a very rushed way as if we were rather an inconvenience at the time. Room was large and decorated somewhat blandly, this was made up for by the views across the solent from the large tilting windows. Apart... More
