I was hosted there for a business trip in July 2011 (4 nights). I got 55£/night price for my room. It was a double room in the backyard facing on a lateral small street. Room number 1: named Spitfire. the room was very good, new towels every morning, some soap and shampoos for shower (which was very nice) plugs for 220-115V in the bathroom and a small table with biscuits and teas/coffees for free every day (mineral water and a boler provided).
The table was directly under the windows and i was not able to shut the curtains, thus a lots of light was able to get in the room at 5 o' clock in the morning. Furthermore the room was facing on a lateral street and nearly every mornig a truck for rubbish collection was making noise very early in the morning waking me up. Even if I were able to go to sleep earlier, nearly at midnight one of the barman turned on his noisy Vespa directly in front of my windows. No way to have rest in that 4 days!!! In the 55£ was included also the English breakfast every morning (after 7.30) The breakfast was very good. Buffet of croissant jams and toast with tea coffee or juices. (But no italian coffee...). In addition you could have a grilled sausage, fried bread, grilled tomatoes or champignons, bacon and a fried egg. Hearty! In my opinion 55£ per night fora single person (even in a double room) is too expensive. But in the UK prices are high in comparison to Germany.
The pub was typical English, the Ringwood Bitter Ale is very good and you can drink easily a pint for ~3.5£. The wifi is free but in the room and in part of the Pub I was not able to obtain a good power of the signal to remain connected. In this inn you can also have lunch and dinner but I never ate there.
In the end: maybe good, but do not let them to rent you the Room n°1 Spitfire!
