When I made the booking directly with the hotel I expected a confirmation for a 3 night stay commencing on the 26th July. It never arrived. I telephoned to chase up as they had taken £80 deposit. They had no record of the booking on the 26th arrival and informed me it was booked for the 2nd July. I did... More

I recently stayed here for a relaxing break with my partner. The room was clean and in great decor order - we were very impressed. We had afternoon tea in the garden which was delicious (we are a young couple from London and enjoyed this for the first time!). We also stayed for dinner - the service was outstanding and... More

We stayed here on a 3 for 2 offer recently and thought it was a great little place with decent food and wine. There's a peaceful outdoor area to enjoy a drink at sunset and the horses come to the lawn at the front. We hired their bikes for free and enjoyed a bike ride through the New Forest. There's...

Even though my mate booked a budget room with 2 bunk beds it was a good wedding at a great venue, everyone seemed very well looked after. My only gripe was how expensive the drinks were but I guess it's the going rate for a venue like this. This place is surrounded by outstanding countryside. Although we didn't use it... More

My partner and I had the tasting menu and were pretty happy with it, best dishes were the lobster risotto and the desserts.The outdoor area was a lovely setting to enjoy the evening sun in. Service was friendly and prompt.

Stayed in this historic building overnight whilst travelling around the countryside on an advertised special of 149 pounds with an upgrade to premium room including dinner and breakfast.

This was our fourth visit. The hotel cannot be faulted. The staff are happy and willing. The food is superb. They allow dogs but don't 'over do' the whole dog indulgence thing. The rooms are comfy and clean. We were chatting to a super couple over a drink and were so taken by their warmth and sense of fun. We... More

We booked the restaurant for my daughter's 30th birthday meal and upon arrival found the building to be one of the ugliest buildings we had ever seen which wasn't helped by the huge use of blue paint on the front of the building and a large emblem in a bright gold paint which just looked cheap!

Dear YvieSurrey This is an interesting take on the architecture of the building, it started as a large private country house in around 1850 and was extended over the years to its current look around 1900. I agree that it may not be the prettiest building in the world but it would seem disingenuous to describe it as one of... More
