We popped in this afternoon with my wife's mother who is coeliac and the tea was superb as usual. Mums gluten problem was no problem as the cakes and sandwiches were top notch and indistinguishable from ours. The staff also were friendly and welcoming. Top marks!

My husband, 10 year old so. And I stayed here for one night. It is a lovely old hotel conveniently located to Beaulieu Palace and the National motor museum.

We have regularly had afternoon tea at this hotel. We always find the staff very friendly and pleasant and the food excellent. The scones are usually only brought out once you are ready for them (to ensure they are warm) and the pastries are delicious. We always find the atmosphere very relaxed. A great choice for a celebration as feels... More

Just spent three nights at this quaint country hotel. Very relaxing, with beautiful gardens. On arrival we weren't too happy with our suite at the front of the hotel so Olaf (very helpful young man) arranged for us to be moved to a suite overlooking the gardens for our other two nights (room 4, which was beautifully appointed). We dined... More
