This hotel is in a beautiful old building with newer additions in the grounds over looking the harbour at Lymington.
I booked via Secret Escapes but for whatever reason my booking did not show up on their system although I had all of the confirmation details. Luckily they had spare rooms so there was no problem but it could have been an issue on another occasion. The reception staff were not as helpfull as they might have been and I was left feeling that it was somehow my fault they did not have my booking!
We took advantage of the all inclusive deal which included dinner in Waterford restaurant. The staff were attentive and helpfull if a little inexperienced. The food was excellent but the wines were overpriced in my opinion with no bottle under £21.
The room was in a block set apart from the hotel. It was spacious and well equipped with a very large bed. The shower was probably the most powerfull I have ever encountered but there was mould around the bath and tiling which needs addressing.
Breakfast is taken in a separate restaurant in an adjacent block. It is a bit cramped and was very busy. The food was excellent; I judge breakfast by how well my eggs are cooked and the poached egg was nigh on perfect.
All in all the stay was very good just spoilt a little by the booking hastle.
