My fiancé and I have just returned from a two night stay in Lymington staying at the Little Gem. We thought it was lovely. Elaine was extremely hospitable and went to great lengths to make our stay as perfect as possible. I am allergic to down feather pillows and she immediately set to in finding non allergic ones for me.... More

We came to visit The Motor Museum for my husband's Uncle's birthday, we found Little Gem a delightful home from home, Elaine makes sure that every guest is happy and made very welcome, the rooms are very clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable. A very yummy breakfast on both days. Thank you. The Burness family :)

Paul and i stayed for 3 nights towards the end of july. I have never known Paul to talk so much at breakfast, ne really enjoyed his chats with Elaine. The room was spotless, the breakfast was fantastic. We look forward to going back again.

A real pleasure to share this lady's home for a few nights. We took the twin room to the rear, good shower etc. , very comfortable and quiet, in a residential area near buses. Our host chatted with us with considerable knowledge and humour over a range of topics, while serving our breakfast, and made our stay memorable. We are... More

My wife and myself, plus our two dogs, used The Little Gem for a one-night stopover before catching the ferry to Yarmouth. Despite the small outward appearance of the house ("Is this it?", I thought when we pulled up outside), our room was a good size, well appointed, and complete with a good en-suite with excellent power shower - just...

I just stayed four nights with my fourteen year old daughter and our English cocker. We had a lovely stay. Elaine did us feel at home. In the morning, we enjoyed her nice breakfast with home made bread. Elaine is a perfect host, she is a very cultivated lady and we had a long talks during the breakfast. She gave... More

I stayed three days recently at the Little Gem. I had a lovely time, the room was clean, beautiful and spotless. The breakfast meals were great and I loved the fruit and the homemade bread. Elaine is very friendly and I loved having an ensuite room though I am single. It is very homely and for me it was ideal.... More

We enjoyed our short stay here and although think that some of the ratings are a little generous would not want our 3 Star rating to put you off staying here. We think that a candid rating would be 3 or perhaps 4 Stars for just about everything. The B&B is in a small cul-de-sac with no off road parking.... More

Thank you so much for your most thorough review. I do appreciate it and learn from each and every review. Your wife is absolutely right, and I apologise to her, the bottom sheet did not fit the bed correctly, I had to stretch it to fit the bed. Much to my chagrin, the last two sets of fitted sheets I...

We stayed at the Little Gem B&B as I was tired of staying in hotels and wanted to stay somewhere a little different. On a quiet cul-de-sac, a 5 minute drive from the centre of Lymington, Little Gem is a good base to explore the New Forest and the proprietor Elaine is a very conscientious (and loquacious!) host. Our room... More
