We had the pleasure of staying here on saturday sadly only for 1 night for a much needed short break. This hotel is a hidden gem, tucked away down a quite country lane we relaxed from the minute we parked the car. The staff were all very polite, accomodating yet not to intrusive, the food from breakfast to our evening... More

Fantastic location and wonderful staff. We had a great time on our night away. A short trip to lymington for a bite to eat and a look round the market. Then back to the hotel for room service and to relax. You can enjoy the beautiful gardens and have a swim and sauna. Definitely highly recommended. I

Having stayed recently at this old hotel with some charm about it if you go back in history to the Victorian era like the antiquated rooms which are old and lacking character .then look at health and safety aspects into the bathroom the hot water is seriously dangerous that you could have clients with serious burns , that clients would...

It is a real shame that you chose to go straight to Tripadvisor first with the issues you experienced during your stay at the Passford House Hotel, and then sending the hotel a threatening email wanting a response to your Tripadvisor review. We would far prefer guests gave us the chance to deal with them direct. Your issues could have... More

Nice gardens , excellent food. Staff are really pleasant and helpful. However really expensive in bar and meal dinner rate was somewhat misleading. Rooms are dated and need modernisation . Gardens are expansive but need updating to give it a wow factor

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. Please accept my apologies that you found the dinner rate to be confusing. The deal is if you book on a dinner, bed and breakfast rate for an extra £30 per person, then you will receive an extra £5 to spend in the restaurant... More

I stayed for a couple of days and it was the perfect get away. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the grounds are beautiful, and the food is delicious - with a beautiful garden view from the restaurant. It's not a modern hotel but it's so comfortable, homely and peaceful, we felt instantly at home. My friend and I... More

We have stayed here on a few occasions having different rooms at different times of the year, it is a quaint country hotel with very attentive staff. It is an amazing place to relax and the afternoon tea is my favourite place even better than the top hotel in the area! Both the indoor and outdoor pools are fab depending... More

Well what can I say, simply amazing. We stayed in one of the four poster rooms which had a breathtaking view of the gardens. The bed was huge, at least a queen size and so comfortable. We had an afternoon tea on arrival and they were very genorous with the portion sizes. We had dinner booked for 9. Lovely relaxing... More
