This is the ideal place to stay the night before catching an early ferry. Friendly welcome and a first class breakfast. Really close to the town just two minute walk. The only thing wrong is they don't open the bar until 5 pm.

I recently stayed here for two nights with my husband. We decided to choose somewhere different for a couple of nights away. Russ was very friendly and happy to help, the pub, restaurant and rooms were all very clean with neutral decor. A couple of marks within the decor, but this never caused a problem! We had a room next... More

Hotel was clean, the room was bright and airy. The furnishings in the room were lovely. Had a tea etc available in the room with bottled water. Staff were friendly and helpful. Free WiFi available. Bar was always quiet, garden well cared for. It's a typical pub bb/ hotel. Breakfast staff were really nice and helpful.

Had an enjoyable stay at The Bosun's Chair. Landlord and staff were very friendly. Breakfast was good quality and room was clean, comfortable and quiet. There's also a lovingly kept garden at the rear. Needs a few cosmetic touches here and there and thought beer was a tad expensive. This may be the area, however. Was a lively quiz night... More

We needed somewhere to stay whilst attending a friends wedding in Brockenhurst (5 miles away) My partner found The Bosuns Chair on line and we booked it. At £85 a night I would say it was fairly priced and very comfortable. The owner Russell was welcoming and couldn't do enough to make sure we were settled. We had room one... More

A rather tired looking exterior, but a nice friendly welcome from staff, and a very nice room on the top floor, large airy and well equipped, with view over the rear gardens. Word of warning : the evening menu was very limited, but with the restaurants and cafes of the high street only a few minutes walk away, it was... More

Comfortable room but you need to be fit to climb two flights of stairs!. Sloping floor shows the age of the building. Excellent coffee machine - could get addicted to the hot chocolate. Good quality toiletries. Great cooked breakfast - could choose the combination so it was freshly cooked. Russ welcomed me in the afternoon so that I could leave... More

Situated next to the quiet railway station, this place looks like it could do with a repaint, the inside needs to be a bit brighter - olive green is too dark. The staff are welcoming and friendly and serve an excellent beer. I had a room up a couple of flights of stairs (no lift) at the back of the... More
