We booked this hotel on a whim 4 hours before we checked in. We wanted to get away from 'it all' In the NF in a relaxed but nice hotel that had a swimming pool for our 4 year old to have some fun in. It was great. The hotel is family friendly but has a great balance of guests...

The venue was perfect for the size of our party. We wanted a private room to accommodate 21 people for a sit down meal. The 'Glass House' fit the bill totally and would certainly sit a few more guests. Peter, the General Manager was very accommodating to all my needs. Helped plan a suitable three course menu with three choices...

Having read some negative reviews we were open minded re our stay. We've stayed at the other 3 New Forest Hotel group and enjoyed every one immensely. This hotel was no exception.

This was a really nice hotel, with pool and sauna. My wife and I spent a couple of very pleasant days exploring the surrounding area. The food was very good, with a nice restaurant. The area is great for days out exploring the New Forest and places like Lyndhurst, Lymington, Beaulieu and Buckler's Hard.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, with an excellent welcome. The room was comfortable and very well-equipped. We were impressed with the pool. We were rather disappointed with the restaurant food which promised more than it delivered. I had smoked trout salad which was exactly that - a good amount of trout on salad leaves with a bit...

Sorry you were disappointed but as I did explain we put the family rooms to the rear of the building as they are quieter. When servicing a room the housekeeping staff will not move guests private belongings thus they may only do a bare minimum as not to disturb personal possessions. the swimming pool is at a temperature of 28...

We booked into this hotel for location but would return for the service and meals. The room was clean, warm and perfectly adequate. We had two evening meals and on both occasions we were provided with top notch food. The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive, nothing was too much. The pulled pork starter was delicious, followed...

The hotel itself is lovely. The reception staff were lovely, very helpful and friendly. The room was very nice, comfortable, clean, spacious with all the amenities you'd expect. The pool was fairly busy but still pleasant as was the sauna. Its in a good location for walks on the New Forest and it's walking distance into the village of Lyndhurst....
