My wife and I booked into The Crown Hotel for a long weekend, as she is 6 months pregnant and we wanted our last break away before the arrival! We have stayed there before, about 5 years ago.
Lyndhurst has gone down hill unfortunately but thankfully the hotel hasn't, it fact it has undergone a make over in some places.
The hotel kindly ungraded us from a superior room to the Evergreen Suite. I would recommend that you do not book this room, it is need of a serious makeover, dark with low ceilings and felt uncomfortable.
Thankfully the hotel moved us, without fuss, to a superior room and this was very nice (although bathroom could do with a refit).
We ate in the brasserrie in the hotel both nights and it has a nice atmosphere in pleasant surroundings. The food is also of a very good quality.
The breakfast was good and also served in the very nice garden restaurant.
The other thing worth pointing out is the staff were always very helpful and happy to assist (particularily Emilia).
If you are staying here and want to eat outside the hotel I would recommend booking early as we had real trouble getting a reservation on Saturday evening.
Overall a very good 3 star hotel, good food, good location for the New Forest and excellent staff. It is in need of some more updating but I understand this is ongoing.
