“The perfect way to see in the New Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We have stayed at the Stanwell House Hotel several times before and each time we have come away with a memorable visit. What can we say different to the overwhelming reviews that the hotel continues to receive and thoroughly deserves? Simply the best! We love it! On New Year's Eve the food was outstanding, the service and hospitality was both professional and good humoured as befits the occasion. This hotel has everything location, comfortable rooms, choice of restaurants but above all the staff are it's biggest asset. From Management through to reception, restaurant and bar there are too many to mention by name. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it just gets better! Can't wait to return next month!

We have visited Stanwell house probably 4 times this year and the place always lives up to our expectations and the exacting standards set by the management.

We have just returned from staying at Stanwell for Christmas and I couldn't recommend the experience enough. We have never had Christmas "away" before and to be honest were a little nervous of what to expect. NO NEED AT ALL.

From the moment we arrived the whole experience was brilliant. I would imagine working over Christmas is tough (everyone has families) but the team were brilliant, relaxed, friendly, nothing too much trouble.
I don't know how the kitchen does it but the quality of the food was exceptional- even on Christmas eve, when I can only imagine the team were preparing for the main event on Christmas day, the food was fantastic ( they were running the full restaurant menu!!!). Also plenty of fizz to get the evening started.

Christmas day was pitched perfectly - not at all over the top, just delivered in the Stanwell way - relaxed and stylish. We had a great breakfast then a long walk tbefore the full monty at 3pm. Despite the fantastic choices on the menu, I went for the traditional Turkey and without wanting to over enthuse, the Turkey was possibly the best I've ever had. I have said this before but Stanwell must be close to a Michelin star. (try the crab Cannelloni)

We have a little Whippet, who loves staying at Stanwell and she is always well looked after. She loves the garden. My advice is try Stanwell, you will love it and Lymington is a great spot.

Room Tip: Garden room for dog owners

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in February this year and immeadiately fell in love with it.The setting is amazing with the conservatory an outstanding feature. We ate in both the seafood restaurant and the restaurant and were very impressed with the quality of the food the presentation and the service.My wife and I very quickly decided this was to be the venue for an intimate family weekend with the centre piece being the celebratory dinner. From the moment we approached the hotel they were fantastic. They were helpful in every area and no matter how many tweaks we asked for they were ever willing to alter things so it was to our liking. Having visited once more in October to discuss the final menu the weekend arrived. From the moment we arrived to the next day when our family joined us the level of service friendliness and help was exemplary. We were given a suite for our second night which was really spacious and beautiful. The food throughout the stay was excellent. We all went away with great memories of a lovely weekend. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: If you can get a suite their great. If not all the rooms are individual and very nice.

I attended a Christmas party on a Saturday night and also stayed the night in one of the garden rooms. The function room was laid out beautifully. I never expect much of the food when I attend a large function as it is not often to a great standard - but it was definately not the case here. All the food arrived piping hot and was tasty, the staff were friendly. We had a twin room with an extra bed (Z bed), so was a little cozy - but absolutely fine for one night. The bathroom and bedroom were both spotless and nicely fitted out and decorated. The cooked breakfast was lovely and there was also a fair choice of pastries, cereals and fresh fruit on offer. I would happily recommend this hotel for a function and am keen to return again to visit the restaurant as a couple.

We stayed one night and everything about the stay was wonderful. The hotel is right in the middle of Lymington and is surrounded by shops. It is in walking distance to the harbour and Lymington is very quaint with lots of individual shops and boutiques. The hotel is gorgeous, the room was exactly the one in the picture The conservatory is just luxury and the whole experience was one of decadence. But above all, the staff excel in every area. I could not recommend this hotel more. We will definitely go back!

Room Tip: We had room 16 which was a suite. Just lovely!

Just staying one night. Excellent service, the room we where given was above our expectations
with a lovely interior. All the comforts of home and large bathroom. The hotel just had a that little something extra with a lovely feel about it. Placed in the high street was great as next morning spent some time christmas shopping in some of the different retail establishments Lymington has to offer. Christmas time was a great time to visit.
