Just returned (March) from a 4 night stay. We had been a year before, and found it warm, friendly, and , if a little shabby, very comfortable and clean. In particular it is very dog friendly.
This time we found the (still friendly and helpful) staff working against the odds. The chain that owns it (Akkeron) have just sold it to an individual owner, the sale is not yet completed and Akkeron is not letting them spend any money at all, so they were running out of everything, for example, no whiskey at all in the bar. They werec so short handed that they had to close the resteraunt for one night.
Despite the problems, the staff were superb, the hotel clean, breakfast excellent, and the position in the Forest but a few minutes walk from Brockenhurst centre is unbeatable.
We look forward to visiting when the new owner is in charge , some updating of the hotel, and I do hope the same welcome.
Akkeron group took our money and did not provide the basics. I will be very careful to ensure they are not intending to sell the hotel before visiting that groups hotels again.
