My husband booked this a a birthday treat for me. We love walking in the New Forest so this hotel was in a prime location. He could not get on of the larger luxury rooms, so a normal double had to suffice. 30 minutes before we set off from home (two hour drive ahead) we received a phone call saying there were problems in the kitchen starting on Friday so could not provide evening meal (part of the package), a list of restaurants in the town was emailed to us and a reservation made in our name. We had a lovely day shopping in Southampton then on to the hotel. No one at reception had to press a bell for attention, booked in by a gentleman who again reiterated the kitchen problems, but breakfast would not be a problem. The room was small as was the bed, but very clean and nicely decorated as was the bathroom. The room was very noisy being on the front facing the church with the A35 flowing passed below. However when double glazing closed this was not a problem. Went for drink in bar no one there had to press bell for attention!! We went to the local Italian and returned to a comfortable nights sleep. The breakfast was a poor buffet style apparently shipped in due to the kitchen problems. Checked out by very friendly and cheery lady called Lisa. Whilst I had a lovely week-end, the hotel was lovely there was not even the offer of a complimentary drink let alone bottle of wine because of the inconvenience and short notice of the change.......we were charged of course B&B rate........but a little extra customer service would have gone a long way............"just saying".
