We were invited along to share the celebrations. Room was very comfortable if a little on the cool side. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful, only one small point was that both times I had coffee it was not as hot as it could be. All in all a most enjoyable visit .

We spent 2 nights here and found it to be a very comfortable hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodation. The quality of the food was excellent both nights we ate there. Location is good for exploring the forest. There have been reviews about the noise at the front of the hotel. It is on a B road but... More

From the road the building had a welcoming appearance Reception: The reception is accessed at the rear directly from the car park. We were quickly checked in and certainly made to feel welcome. The room: We had a decent sized room and a comfortable bed.... More

We stayed here for a 2 night break as our last weekend away before our baby is due in a few weeks and had a perfect stay! The location, though very easy to get to from main road is surrounded by the golf course and the start of the gorgeous forest area. Bar and restaurant areas are a lovely cosy... More

Stayed for 2 nights 20-21st February. Great location - only minutes off the M27 but feels like you are in the heart of the New Forest. When we arrived early Thursday PM the rain was pouring down. An easy decision then - a light lunch with drinks next to the warm log fire. Great staff, very attentive and friendly, without... More

Stumbled upon this place on a rainy Sunday lunchtime The bar menu is brilliant , and the lemon meringue parfait is the best dessert I have eaten in several years . I Highly recommend it ! They do weddings and have 27 rooms for guests . A really nice find - and don't forget the lemon parfait dessert .
