We are still on cloud nine after returning from a 3 day stay at Eastclose with 30 of our closest friends and family to celebrate Christmas and our wedding on boxing day.
As soon as we were shown around the venue in march this year - we knew it was right for us. Nothing was too much trouble and when we explained that we had family travelling long distances and would like to stay a few days it was suggested to us to stay here over Christmas and have a boxing day wedding. We had the hotel exclusively from Christmas eve night and were treated so well by all the staff. Christmas day lunch was an 8 course extravaganza!! and we had private use of the restaurant marquee extension which gave it such a private feel - everyone enjoyed the food and fast and efficient service. Despite having to work on Christmas day the staff were joyous and fun - Just goes to show that it is obviously a great place to work also..
Throughout the planning of our wedding - I have mostly dealt with Ellie who I can honestly say is a godsend! nothing was too much trouble and even though she was also tasked with sorting out our Christmas requirements she took this in her stride and communicated with me by email which was so much easier for me! Thank you Ellie!
During the day of the wedding we had Nicola who eased us through the order of the day and made it flow perfectly - Even when we were having trouble hooking my dress up she was on hand to help!! Again, Nicola obviously has a real passion for her job and has become a real professional and is a credit to Tim and his team at Eastclose.
The wedding breakfast was delicious, and all tables were served simultaneously which was really nice...I have been to many weddings and events whereby each table is on a different course!! the room looked beautiful.
I also have to mention how effortlessly beautiful the garden room is for a ceremony - It needs nothing to enhance it. Such a special place to say our vows.

Although we had such a large parry, and lots of different element to account for - check out was seamless and organised as everything had been prepared in advance - thank you again.
We were lucky enough to be in room 1 - the bridal suite. So so comfortable and luxurious, but we were also able to look in all the other rooms that were being used by our party and they were all just as luxurious in their own way.
Breakfast is high quality and plentiful. delicious!!

We really cant speak highly enough of this venue. As Travel Managers we are lucky enough to travel the world and stay in some top hotels, but this place will always be extra special to us and will always come highly recommended.
Well done Tim, Ellie, Nicola and the rest of the team , We will definitely be back.

After being invited away for a family christmas and a family wedding on Boxing Day was abit worried being away from home at Xmas but WOW I would do it again amazing time away and brilliant accommodation. The staff were great as we hardly saw them which was great as it made christmas more personal to the family but the staff were always on hand if needed. The rooms were a dream to stay in with plenty of tea/coffee and bottled water at our disposal the room came with a iron and ironing board which was great as this was needed for the Boxing Day wedding all in all a brilliant time was just like being at home but on a larger scale thanks for having us

Just returned from the most amazing 3 day Christmas stay, incorporating my daughters wedding on Boxing Day. From arrival to departure we were looked after so well, all the management and staff couldn't do enough for us, we had booked all the rooms and so almost had the hotel exclusively. It was just fantastic to spend quality time with family and friends in the most convivial of surroundings. The Wedding package was everything you needed to make the day fantastic, and again, the staff were just terrific. A big thank you to you all for making this such a great Christmas and Wedding.

Room Tip: All good, good attention to detail and spotlessly clean.

We have just returned from the Eastclose hotel on an extended wowcher deal. What a lovely place for a pre christmas break! We had the most beautiful room with fantastic views over the new forest the food was absolutely excellent ( we had 3 dinners and each of them was fantastic) the breakfasts were lovely with cereals, toast, pastries followed by a "full English". There's not much time for a diet before Christmas but I need to go on one!. The staff were all lovely and made us feel very welcome the barman in particular was full of information about local places to visit. All in all a lovely break and if I was in that part of the country again I would definitely return!.

Room Tip: Room 8 was absolutely lovely

This was our second stay at the hotel and it was even better than the first time. The staff were exceptionally pleasant & helpful - nothing was too much trouble; we were made to feel welcome as soon as walked into reception and a roaring log fire certainly added to the overall ambiance.

The evening meal was first rate - would highly recommend the food. The room was absolutely spotless with everything you need for a really comfortable stay and I'm very fussy about cleanliness - couldn't fault it at all.

Breakfast - again perfect and served with a genuine smile! The building oozes character with lots of period features including a beautiful sweeping staircases leading to the bedrooms, but with all the modern conveniences you would hope for.

Well done - keep up the good work and thank you for a lovely stay - we will be back.

Nothing is too much for this delightful Hotel placed in the middle of the New Forest! From the moment you enter you are surrounded by contemporary luxury, the atmosphere is warm and relaxing.
The staff just want to please. Whatever we requested the reply was always - 'yes course we can' and always with a smile!!!
Our excellent evening meal was accompanied by a lovely red! and breakfast had a wide choice and the bacon didn't smell piggy!!
We stayed for two nights in a delightful room of sheer elegance!
Would I visit this place again? - Absolutely!! ....I'm really looking forward to it!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter, but we didn't find this a problem.
