We stayed in a superior double room at the front of the hotel. Spacious with a pleasant bathroom and well supplied with toiletries etc. One small gripe though, no tea making facilities provided. When checking out I was told that if I had asked they would have been provided. Bearing in mind the cost I do think that this should have been provided automatically. We had dinner, beautifully cooked but really quite expensive, especially the wine ! Breakfast was included in the price, as much as you wanted but self service. The hotel was warm, clean and the staff very helpful and attentive. Log fires, plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge and bar.
I would go back though, it is a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior double

Positives are that the rooms are clean. The bar prices for beer are ok but forget anything else. Pint of larger £3.60 but a lager shandy is £5.60!! The food isn't bad, but its also not great. However the service is not just slow but it makes Basil and Manuel look attentive and competent hosts! I am not one to complain at all, and believe me I don't, I think a travel inn could have been better. Having said that, the fry up for breakfast is not the hottest but is tasty. Wouldn't rush back and would try others well before coming back

Very welcoming and friendly staff. The room was lovely, very clean and tidy. Gorgeous cocktails and delicious breakfast. Suited our vegetarian needs for the English breakfast. Will definitely be staying again. From Karyn and Peter

A lovely hotel which is very traditional, somewhat dated interiors and makes a huge effort to offer a very personal service, including silver service and printed cards on your breakfast table with your name on. I think they don't have the right balance. Focus more on the interiors, more updated without losing the charm, and less focus on the over-the-top personal service. Appeals to an older traveller.

Our family stayed there for three nights, there were 23 of us. The staff are delightful. Very helpful. The food was excellent - we had our separate room for our dinners.
There is a very pleasant garden and the Forest is a short walking distance, the rooms are very comfortable. We already booked it again for December 2014.

We stayed at the hotel for one night in early Septemeber. The setting was beautiful, very quiet and the grounds were absolutely lovely.

We ate lunch outside in the grounds. My husband had afternoon tea and I had a ploughmans - both were lovely but we did wait quite a long time for the food to arrive and it was difficult to order it as there was no-one on the bar - we ended up ordering our food at the check-in desk which was a bit odd! The lunch menu was reasonably priced.

We chose to eat dinner in Lymington as the dinner menu at the hotel seemed very expensive for what it was.

We paid a discounted rate of £90 for our room, including breakfast, as it was a last minute, mid-week booking. I would have been disappointed with our room had we paid full price as it certainly wasn't worth more than £90. The decor was very old fashioned and tired. I really didn't like the carpet in the bathroom and the bed/pillows weren't very comfortable.

We really enjoyed the full english breakfast and the all of the staff were very friendly.

In summary, a lovely stay but the hotel is a little old fashioned and need updating.

My wife and I have just returned from a one night stay at this excellent Hotel. It was our first visit and will not be our last. We arrived following a very delayed and tiring car journey and were welcomed by a reception lady who could not be more helpful in arranging a taxi to take us to a private dinner party a few miles away. As time was short {we had to be showered and out of the Hotel in 35 minutes from arrival!) two refreshing drinks were speedily delivered to our rooms in 2 minutes by a very cheery barman.
The room and bathroom were beautiful, with quality furnishings and a large comfortable bed.

On returning to the Hotel at 12.10pm with six other friends, the bar staff were very polite and helpful thus making our "night cap" a perfect end to a great evening...some sandwiches were requested , prepared in less than 10 minutes and were first class !!

Well done to all staff and we will be back

Room Tip: Room 109 for a special stay
