Our room was a good size and was very comfortable with good quality sheets and... More

Another trip to Lymington to check on elderly relative and staying as usual at the little gem. I would simply not consider staying anywhere else! Elaine is fantastic, breakfast smashing and nice quiet rooms.

Fairly easy to find as long as you look out for the blue front door. Elaine is very helpful in providing local information. We enjoyed a friday night stay in a large double room with en-suite facilities overlooking the garden. All very comfortable. Full English Breakfast the following morning was wonderful!

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 :)
