Stanwells is a particular favourite place for us as we had our wedding reception here a few years ago. We generally have an excellent experience but on this occasion we were really disappointed in the drop in standard of service. We had recommended it to family, a couple, who were staying for 2 nights & we had high expectations, as... More

Mario the barman was a pleasure , suggesting drinks to try and telling us about... More

As part of our dinner, bed and breakfast package we dined here on a Sunday evening. The service was very efficient and the food excellent. My husband had the Scallops followed by the Plaice and I had the fillet steak. All very good and if I had one criticism the peppercorn sauce was a little too salty. Wine reasonable.

The food was not overpriced in our view. We would have preferred a little room in the restaurant but waiting staff was attentive but not overbearing. I would recommend eating lunch here in preference to dinner on your first visit.

We went with a friend on a dinner as part of out holiday. From the start we were made slightly uncomfortable by the waiter and the service was pretty cold throughout. The food was average and when I made a remark that my starter was rather salty there was no apology or reassurance. The red wine jus that my friend... More

If you are looking for excellent fish and seafood cooked with flair and originality, this is the place for you. Pollock in a gin flavoured batter ticks a lot of boxes.

The Stanwell team are very well organised and use their location extremely with an exceptionally high attention to detail for a moderately priced hotel. The meal was excellent, well presented with an excellent choice of dishes, delivered by attentive staff, simply faultless. The ambience of the entire hotel is a credit to Lymington and a relief after the experience elsewhere... More

Pleasant surroundings, presentation good but food is lacking in quality. More attention should be paid to creating less pretentious, better quality dishes.
