“loved it”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

I've just got back from a 2 night break and everything about this place was great. The service was really friendly and efficient, the place looked clean and bright, the room was very comfortable, its location in the centre of Lymington is superb and the food was excellent (both dinner and the breakfasts we had). The wine/alcohol list was also very good.
I can't say a bad word about it.
Thanks to everyone at the hotel for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: all rooms here are nice, but the garden/patio view is probably a little nicer.

I have been here 5 times. The food had always been delicious and the restaurant is beautiful. The meals I have has have been very good value for the quality. I think it is by far the best place to eat in Lymington. The local art exhibitions give this place local charm. Well worth a visit.

I would like to thank you for a wonderful New Years Eve 2013/14 enjoyed by my wife and I and our friends. We all found the venue, the atmosphere, the warm welcome, the excellent service and particularly the food a joy.
Please continue that beautiful 8 course taster menu for as long as possible - wonderful, the best we have tasted for a long time.
Many thanks and best wishes - Clive Holmes.

We stayed at Stanwell House this christmas with friends and could not fault our stay. Lovely staff, really nice rooms, great food - just a perfect stay.
Would recommend the Georgian rooms at the front of the hotel, lots of character.

Stayed one night between Christmas and New Year. Well placed hotel right on the High Street. Reasonable sized room, spotlessly clean with good sized shower. Our room (no 36) had a view over the roof tops to the Marina. Dined in the Sea Food restaurant which had a good choice of fresh fish which tasted lovely with great service. Had drinks in the bar after (small but nice). Breakfast was good too. A slight wait (15 mins) as Dining Room was very busy but plenty of tea/coffee/ while you wait. (Eggs Benedict were superb) We made a point of chatting to all the staff we met and they really were very efficient/professional whilst remaining very friendly. Lymington itself was very pleasant with plenty of shopping, good walks and a couple of nice pubs. We would not hesitate in returning to Stanwell House.

For a friend's birthday, we decided Stanwell House would be the ideal location for afternoon tea. It didn't disappoint us! A delightful, relaxing and airy setting, friendly, helpful staff and a fantatsic selection of delicious cakes and sandwiches. We will definitely return.

Just back from a lovely trip to Lymington and would go to Stanwell House again.
Nice, smart hotel with aspects of the old character (staircases). Lovely rooms, clean , modern, with everything you would want from a good hotel.
The Bar is nice, small but functional, we had lovely cocktails in there, they have a sister Bistro two minutes away too.
We ate in the Bistro restaurant, great food, excellent service. I had pork, my partner the steak, we washed it down with a nice Pinot Noir.
Breakfast was great, the Grand Breakfast was good, the continental breakfast looked good too.
We had room 23, which was fine but my partner is a light sleeper, so we would not have a room on the High Street again.
But would definitely stop at the Stanwell again when we next visit Lymington :)
