A very pleasant friendly and comfortable hotel. Not to expensive. Accessible to the town. Set in pleasant grounds. Staff helpful. Accommodation clean and comfortable. Buses pass by hotel to Lymington and coast with plenty of taxi around. Food was extremely good and not expensive either.

We stayed here as part of a wedding weekend. The rooms were very spacious and well appointed and equipped even down to an iron and ironing board!! The bed was really comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and plentiful. I would certainly recommend this hotel and its amazing wedding package. I look forward... More

5 of us stayed with very caring hotel staff to help celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. It was an ideal place for us. My Aunt needed a shower she was able to step into and this was provided for our 7 day stay. The room, which had only just been refurbished, was on the ground floor with a lovely, rural... More

My daughter and I stayed here just after Christmas, the hotel is beautifully decorated for the festive season. Our room was fabulous, very large, twin beds, staff very friendly. Only negative was lack of vegetarian choice on evening menu, we wanted to eat here so ended up with sandwiches, not the evening meal we had hoped for! Having said that,... More

There are always 4 starters and 4 main courses suitable for vegetarians on our menus and our chef is most helpful with any of our guests who have dietary requirements. We have a loyal following of guests with special diets ranging from vegans to medically restricted diets, these guests return because we take care of them and their individual requirements.... More

Took a party of 34 to South Lawn for afternoon tea. Beautiful weather meant it was possible to have tables outside and the staff had laid these up very tastefully. The food - a choice of sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and a variety of cakes - was very good and coffee and a variety of teas were in... More

An excellent hotel where nothing is too much trouble. We had room number 7 which was very comfortable. I agree with the previous comments about the size of the TV but understand that this is.being sorted out with new TVs. Also about the lack of slelves in the bathroom.

The location is lovely. The hotel is "work in progress"......room 10 was very spacious, however the small tv screen was hard to view from such a distance away and the bathroom, although lovely, lacked any shelves to place a number of toiletries. The only surfaces were on the sink, the top of the toilet cistern, or the floor! We had... More

Very welcoming hotel, and staff extremely helpful. Bedroom lovely and airy, nice shower room, all very clean and tidy, and great view over the fields, which had sheep roaming freely. Plenty of parking space, and very relaxing grounds to the hotel.
