Thank you Russ for a lovely weekend. Our room was light, airy and spotless. Our bed was comfy with lovely bed linen and big fluffy towels. Our ample full English breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Used pub as a base for overnight stay, having booked dinner at Stanwell House. More than adequate for this purpose with friendly staff, clean and pleasant rooms and great location for the town centre. As with all pubs you have to expect some noise until they close so not for early bedtimers! Freshly cooked full english available and served in... More

We were unable to book in until 4 pm and although the room was suffient the slay bed obscured the TV on the... More

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

Stayed here for 2 nights room 7. The room is large very clean and comfy. 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
