“Excellent hotel in fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the hotel over the New Year. Opted for the dinner, bed and breakfast and the food and service were great. We stayed with our dog and she was made very welcome with towels at the door and biscuits. Also found that the drink prices were very reasonable too. The only thing we would have changed was the weather! Will certainly be returning - thank you to all the staff and other guests for a great break and New Year.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

We stayed her for New Year's Eve and went out into the village. It has an enviable location. The rooms are clean and furnished to a good standard. The staff are friendly and professional. It really is well located for the village, new forest or heading further south.

I organised a group trip and the staff were so helpful and nice. The hotel us pretty basic but comfortable and gas a lovely bar area. Perfectly located for a trip to the New a Forest and especially Lyndhurst. Lots of nice pubs and restaurants within walking distance.

I saw the reviews for this B&B on trip advisor and decided to give it go. As a family we love little breaks but want something a little bit special when it comes down to accommodation. It's often hard to combine the convenience of self catering ( separate rooms so that children can be asleep and parents relax, eat and watch TV without disturbing the kids) with the added extras of a B&B (room cleaned daily and breakfast and or dinner in the comfort of your accommodation)
So Ormonde House is a real treat. If you ordered before 6pm you could have a meal delivered to your apartment and they were so accommodating in that children's meals could be made earlier so that you could keep with your normal routine. Meals were delicious and a good varied local menu was on offer.
The accommodation was spacious and the added space of the conservatory(although a bit chilly in January and noisy due to the heavy rain) was a bonus as you didn't feel that you were eating and sleeping in the same room.
Staff were friendly and accommodating, although a gentle reminder to order breakfast would have been helpful. Location was perfect as you could walk into Lyndhurst, and pop across the (busy) road to see the new forest ponies, which delighted our 2 girls.
A lovely B&B and one which I'm sure we'll stay in again next time we visit the New Forest.

A two night stay, just back, with family.
Stayed in 2 bungalow rooms which were really well furnished, clean and comfortable.
Kitchen areas included dishwasher, laundry washer/dryer as well as everything else needed if you wanted to self cater.
Plenty of hot water and central heating working well
Clean fluffy towels each
Breakfast included plenty of variety and cooked requests delivered to the room with generous portions
Generous spirit in the presentation and welcome

The staff were really helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Chose bungalow rooms because of independence and not good on stairs.

I spent 4 nights at the Ormonde House Hotel and had a lovely time there. Not only were the staff very friendly and helpful, but the other guests were also very friendly. I was told by a couple who have been going there for 17 years (which speaks for itself) that the hotel "has that effect on people". As I was staying there on my own, it made all the difference to my stay that I was able to make friends with some of the other guests.

The room was very nice (a standard double) - certainly spacious enough for me, with plenty of wardrobe space (and hangers!) and draws. The bed was extremely comfortable, and I slept very well. I was also pleased that there were plenty of electric sockets for laptop, chargers etc. Everything was spotlessly clean. I did have a slight problem getting the sloping window shut, but a member of staff soon sorted that out for me.

The bathroom was excellent and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. A superb walk-in (double size) shower with plenty of hot water and (bliss!) a shower head that takes down for hair washing (other hotels please take note!). They had some very thoughtful touches - the main mirror lights up (handy when you don't want to put the main light on and set off the extractor fan), and also a decent-sized magnifying mirror which moves around and also lights up.

I had intended to try different restaurants every night, but in the end ate at the hotel as the food was so good, and reasonably priced. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and everything was cooked to my personal taste. There are several options if you don't fancy the full cooked breakfast.

All in all, a lovely place to stay. It is on a busy road, but is set back from the road so you don't really notice any traffic noise. It's only a 5 minute walk into the village, and is right in the centre of the New Forest, Although dog-friendly (quite a few of the guests had their dogs with them) there was no doggy smells in the room. I am looking forward to returning to the Ormonde next year and can definitely recommend it.

We have just had 3 nights away at the Ormonde House Hotel. What a lovely place to stay. All the staff were very friendly and polite. The rooms were lovely and clean and the food was excellent, better than you get in many restraunts.!! We will definitely be going back to stay there.
