“Nice location, nice people, some parts tired.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Ormonde House is in a beautiful location and we stayed for two nights during the very recent hot spell. We stayed in a room at the top of 2 flights of stairs (no lift!) and found the room’s appearance and facilities tired and not as clean as they could have been. To me, it did not feel like a hotel, nor did it have the facilities of what I consider a hotel to have. It was priced at the top end of the B&B range at £99 per night (standard room), including breakfast and the food was good – not outstanding as some have commented on. Other positives: the location is excellent, the staff, in particular the owner, understanding and friendly. We had to leave 2 days early due to an emergency and he charged us for one extra night only – he could have charged for two. When we asked for an extra fan, one was brought up from the bar for us; the room was very hot. If I stayed here again it would be in a different room and possibly in one of the cottages with my dog – they are very dog friendly.

We booked 3 nights at this hotel. From the pictures on the web site the rooms looked nice. We tried to book the kingsize room that the website said was available, but we couldn't. When we phoned we were told that the room was not available. We were told that a double room was available and it was identical to a king size except that it didn't have a fridge and the bed was smaller. When we arrived we were shown into an attic room that had a very small double bed, a single bed and a sofa all crammed into a very small room. The decor was shabby, the bed covers smelled bad and the carpet was filthy. We checked in at 4 pm and were told that if we wanted to eat in the restaurant that evening we had to choose what we wanted to eat by 5pm - Hardly the first thing on our minds after a long journey! We decided to leave after 1 night and the manager was very reasonable and gave us a refund for the unused nights plus a small discount, which was appreciated. When we commented upon the smelly bedspread the manager assured us it was washed once per month.

Room Tip: Don't trust the pictures on the web-site

Lovely hotel with lovely staff.
We stayed here for four nights and loved it.
We were in Pinewood 4 - a double and a twin - which has a conservatory where we had a fabulous Full English every morning, with strawberries.
It was brought over piping hot by the hotel's friendly staff.
Also had a delicious evening meal, with a perfectly cooked steak. My son said his chicken was among the best he'd ever had.
The hotel, informal and relaxed, is also very dog friendly. The New Forest is across the road, with a convenient entrance for walkers almost opposite the hotel.
Met Paul the owner briefly and it's a credit to him that his staff are so natural and friendly, particularly Karen at reception, who also doubles up at the bar.
We've already rebooked for next summer!

This is a nice comfortable hotel, the staff are very friendly and it's very well run. The rooms we've stayed in are attractive and modern with tv and tea/coffee making facilities and there's lots of parking space in front of the hotel. The breakfasts are really good and well cooked, there's a restaurant which served very nice modern food when we used it but we haven't used it recently. There's also a bar with comfy seating area, so if it's raining, or you're tired, no need to go out.

It's position on the edge of Lyndhurst (5 mins walk) makes it very convenient for the open forest and the village centre with its handful of local pubs and restaurants.

We've stayed a couple of times and would stay there again.

Room Tip: We've always stayed on the second floor which has quite steep steps, which is no problem really...

We stayed at the end of June 2012 for 2 nights. the staff were very welcoming and efficient and helpful. be aware though that there is no lift and the stairs to the second floor where we stayed were quite steep especially when carrying cases.
The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. The hotel is well situated for the town and the forest and had a nice family feel, we would definitely go again.

A well positioned hotel just a short walk to many restaurants and the village. The only downside is that there is no lift and the stairs are very steep. The room was spacious and clean and quiet. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were very friendly. There is plenty to see and do in the area around Lyndhurst .

Room Tip: Our room over looked the main road and yet it was quiet.
