Ok. We had a problem. The room we were given fell below our expectations. However, you can judge a hotel by how well it responds, and this hotel responded very well. The hotel is very pleasant; well decorated rooms; two restaurants (a bistro and seafood); comfortable indoor and outdoor relaxing social areas but a very, very small bar. The food... More

My husband and I stayed here on a deal which included the cream tea and dinner bed and breakfast. This was amazing value. The room was lovely with everything we needed even fresh milk when requested. The only niggles were the pillows which were bad and the noise from the traffic which was no fault of the hotel.. When we... More

We were warmly welcomed on arrival for our one night stay and shown to our room at the top of the hotel which was very comfortable. The cream tea we had in the afternoon was followed that evening by a 5 course taster menu. The service is first class and the food delicious and we hope to return soon for... More

stayed here recently. Check-in was efficient, showing us the car park and taking us directly to the room. Garden room is comfortable, but with people outside having cream teas on the terrace we didn't feel we could leave the outside door open. The evening meal was good, and the wine choice to accompany the courses was very good. However, the... More

Just arrived home from 2 nights at Stanwell House Hotel and have to say that everything was top notch. We were on the Travelzoo deal and at that price this really was a bargain. We had great service with a smile from everyone, extremely good breakfast (better than a lot of first class London hotels), scones to die for at... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such positive, constructive feedback. Our Achilles heal is the parking and up to 5 years ago, we didn't have a car park , so the dozen or so spaces are handy if you get one. Thank you for being so understanding. The scones are baked daily and our pastry chef will be... More

We had a fantastic couple of nights here last week and wished we could've stayed a week! I've just re read my review and it all sounds a bit 'gushy' but, in our experience, it really was this good. I'm already looking at dates to go back. Firstly, Marilyn, one of the receptionists, took my telephone booking and made the... More

Nothing wrong with this hotel except we paid for a coffee fillup at breakfast which left a slight bad taste. Decor is adventurous and fun. Location is good. One can walk to the marinas from here. Lymington is wonderful.

Boss17, Owner at Stanwell House Hotel, responded to this review

Firstly, can I sincerely apologise, you shouldn't have been charged for a 'top up' , our only thoughts were perhaps you moved into the Conservatory BUT please accept my personal apologies and as you liked Lymington so much, if you return and identify yourself, I'll happily refund you for this oversight. Thanks for posting the review and not punishing us... More

My partner and I LOVE this hotel. This past weekend we hosted his 50th Birthday weekend with 15 other friends.. I started planning the birthday weekend with Annette and Marilyn at the Stanwell about 4 months ago. From the very beginning, I could not have asked for a better group of women to work with. Everything was answered with expedience... More

Nothing is too much trouble, staff go over and above 5 star service. Room spotless and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Garden a little piece of paradise of England too. Evening dinner a pleasure to the eye and palette. Would not hesitate to recommend and will definitely be returning knowing what a first class hotel it is. Thank... More

We stayed for two nights this past weekend. The hotel is perfectly placed in the main high street but don't worry there is very little traffic noise. The rooms are lovely with interesting features and décor. The restaurant looked great although we didn't dine at the hotel. Nice bar though! The staff were friendly and helpful. Medium priced, probably best... More
