My husband and I stayed here for a break away from London before the birth of our child. We were so impressed with the hotel and the new spa. We can be quite difficult to please and this hotel did not disappoint. We stayed in a great room- a generous room-Pavillion 2. It was incredibly spacious with a fantastic free standing bath at the end of the room overlooking the new forest. The decor of the whole hotel and our room was sophisticated, country modern. Little touches like- underfloor heating in the bathroom, a real wood fire in our room, detailed routes of walk/runs in a little pack all made the experience. The grounds of the hotel are also beautiful- the setting in the New Forest adds to its charm. The spa was really impressive- the 3 pools- hydro/ lap and hot pool really helped make our stay feel indulgent and a real treat. We enjoyed very good food- a full tea and a meal in the scullery. All the staff were very helpful and friendly! I look forward to going back and next time we'll eat in the formal restaurant and try eating at the kitchen table- any guests can eat their meal in the kitchen and have courses from either restaurant while informally chatting with the chefs- this needs to be booked as it's popular.
It is pricey but we definitely felt it was well worth it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lime Wood, a boutique country house hotel in England, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London. We like to think of ourselves as a luxury country house hotel with a difference. We've used Lime Wood's classical structure as the basis of our design but we've lovingly renovated it with a fresh approach, reviving its architecture and grounds. We've kept the spirit of its past, taken inspiration from its extraordinarily beautiful surroundings and added the odd contemporary twist to bring it to life. The food is by Luke Holder and Angela Hartnett. With its proximity to London, our New Forest boutique hotel really is the ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home; whatever your motivations, we can't wait to show you around. ... more less
