We went for a Manor room (12) this room is 5* and the dinner bed and breakfast deal was great value. The staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant food is first class (scotch egg starter especially)! and the buffet... More

We were in room 11 it was at the rear of the main building so quiete but no view from the window. The room has recently been refurbished and was cosy, clean... More

Reception good. Lovely hotel. Comfortable lounge and bar area. We stayed in an attic room, huge comfy double bed- all clean and tidy- bathroom, with shower over, fine but could do with a little updating. We had a drink in the bar before dinner where our order was taken. Staff were professional and friendly (except one young waitress who got... More

Friendly and well located hotel. Rooms high standard. Good pub over the road as an alternative. We would probably eat there next time although food in the Bell was fine. Forest course is old course and a lovely experience with the ponies etc roaming free. Manor course was busy so we were limited with tee time choice. Excellent value. Try... More

Stayed at the Bell for one night. Not much to say other than everything was excellent. Staff, food, room etc etc. If you are in the area you wont be disappointed staying here, especially if your a golfer.

Room 5 is tiny (the desk not big enough for a laptop and no electrical socket nearby other than the one for the TV) and the bathroom must have been high-fashion in 1985. Weak wifi in that corner too; enough for the laptop, not for the phone. But the rest of the hotel is great; staff cheery, food excellent, some... More

Party of 4 stayed for 2 nights including golf. Staff,food and rooms all excellent. Beautifully situated in the New Forest. Club house well situated and again staff friendly and welcoming. Both courses a test of golf and the Forest course has to be played if not only for the wild life. Never before walked a fairway along side a new... More

We stayed for two nights in a deluxe room. I booked by phone and the person who took my call was happy to spend time describing the rooms so I could choose the one I thought would most suit us. On arrival, checking in was efficient and the room was as described. Although facing the road, the double glazing cut... More

Stopped by for lunch. Very pleasant and light restaurant with contemporary design, but still in keeping with a more traditional location. The menu was good with full on mains or smaller plates and sandwiches which is good to see at lunchtime. I had the crab roll which was excellent but came with a small side salad and even smaller portion... More
