The hotel is under refurbishment, which it needs, apart from that - the staff are helpful, our room was small but adequate, great position in the New Forest and clean. It was value for money and food was good.

The staff were really great, welcoming and friendly. They all made our stay really pleasant. A special mention for the restaurant waiter who served us for dinner and breakfast! The food was very good and again, good value for money. We had the roast beef and it was delicious. I liked that food was available all day, you could get... More

An interesting hotel, whose hay day was clearly in the 70s and no money has been spent on it since. Whilst there is renovation work under way, the rest of it is very sad and dated. I don't really like stains on the carpet and wallpaper, or pealing wallpaper! The staff were helpful and polite, and the bar is a... More

Thank you for your review. You are correct that the price is reflective of the £1m renovation work which is underway. The hotel is under new ownership and once the work is completed and the entire hotel is decorated it will indeed be a glorious hotel. I am pleased you were impressed by our staff and we look forward to... More

For what we paid we did not expect to much, and having seen the photos we were right! The hotel is in the middle of renovation, and it needs it! Having said that the staff were very good the, breakfast was fine and we had a bite to eat in the bar and that was fine also. You can see... More

The restaurant is reasonably priced and serves good pub hub. It is an extensive menu though and we have found that it is best to stick to the less complicated things; scampi, burgers etc as they are better than the more complex ones which seem to be heated up and don't fare as well. Service is good, locals all year... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. You are obviously a regular to the New Forest and to us.

Stayed on new years eve 2014 and decided to return again for 2015. Fantastic food and service, made to feel very welcome by staff! Lovely atmosphere in a traditional country house hotel. Beds very comfortable and overall very good value for money! A major refurbishment is currently in place but this did not detract from our stay. Thoroughly recommended!

Thank you for your review. There may be scaffolding on the exterior but it is true that once you are in the building you wouldn't know there was any work going on at all.

After being let down at another venue (weather related), decided to book this hotel for the night as my wife and I had stayed here on our honeymoon in 1972! Hotel is undergoing renovation and the rooms are a little tired, however they were very clean and should be terrific when the work is complete. All the staff we met... More

Stayed here in Sept. for 2 nights with my wife in a superior room, very nice room with all the necessities, it had the largest bed we have ever slept in, it must have been seven feet wide. Staff very friendly, good food served with a smile. Would stay again but would opt for a standard room.

Although surprised to find the hotel covered in scaffolding, it was somewhat disappointing to find the hotel undergoing extensive renovations whilst still taking guests. Our room was shabby, tired, stained and dismal. The toilet or sink leaked as a puddle appeared each time it was used and the silicone squeezed along the join was obviously Ineffective. Overall an awful nights... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and l am disappointed that your experience was not up to our usual high standard.
