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

We stayed for two nights at this b&b for a wedding (at another hotel). We picked it because it was close to the wedding location and the reviews were good. 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

At last I can write a positive review! Stayed here for one night and recieved first class treatment. Rooms were basic but everthing was there that I needed. Food was fantastic and even though there was a bar downstairs it did not interfere with me working/ resting. Will definately be recommending to clients and returning again.

We stayed in this B&B for our first year anniversary and really enjoyed our stay. We were looking for somewhere well priced in the heart of the New Forest ( which is always a task ) and noticed that the Bosun's Chair certainly offered the best accommodation for the money that you pay. The B&B is above a pub and... More

My husband and I stayed for one night in order to attend a wedding reception in Lymington. We chose this establishment as it was based in Lymington and not too far from the venue for the wedding reception. The pub was a lovely old style British pub with several TVs showing different sports, as football fans ourselves we appreciated being... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Bosun's Chair on the Friday and Saturday night after Christmas. I had read good reviews and was really looking forward to the trip. The exterior of the pub was not what I expected and the stairs were very steep, certainly not suitable for anyone who is not fit, especially if you are located... More
