Me and my partner stayed for one night at the Bosun's Chair in Lymington and overall the experience was very positive. We received a warm welcome and a very tasty breakfast in the morning (just maybe the portion was slightly small), but surely cooked fresh to order. The room was simple but at the same time had a cosy feeling... More

The speciality pies were a treat as well as the well cooked breakfast. The location is perfect, short walk into the town. Would definitely recommend this as the place... More

The bathroom was also clean but I prefer a shower not a bath with electric shower but that is my personal choice and should in no way put you off this very good value for money hotel. Excellent breakfast and I liked the way the... More

I was given a very warm welcome by Russ at the Bosun's Chair on my arrival. The room is very good for the money and has all you need for a short stay and the location is great, right in the centre of Lymington, convenient for the train station, the quay and all the local sights. I wouldn't hesitate to... More

It was very pretty on the inside and outside and we were greeted by Russ who was friendly and welcoming. Everywhere was well kept, nicely decorated and clean.The room was... More

Ours was a last minute booking so we paid a bit more for a Friday night. The room up two flights of stairs was nice and clean with a lovely view over the garden. The service from when we checked in to checkout was excellent, the staff couldn't do more for you. We felt however the thing that let the... More
