“Good food”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Have not stayed here, but have eaten in The Drift Inn, a very good country pub, with good food and beers/ wine. Good location for walks in the New Forest. Can get busy, but easy to park across the road.

As a very regular weekend New Forest visitor, I wanted to undertake a number of walks over two consecutive weekends with the £38 special B and B rate. I took my dog Koda with me and we were warmly welcomed throughout our stay. This place treats your dog as one of the family and makes the weekend complete. I had a tight schedule for the number of walks to be undertaken. The room I was initially allocated was not approriate, room 6 has a strange smell and is too pokey for my visit. I was able to reserve my favourite room for both dates. I enjoyed the breakfast which is in the pub next door. The service was not attentative and customers were complaining about sauces arriving after meals had been eaten and food over cooked. The evening dinner was okay but the menu unimaginative. The room I was moved to was ideal with the shower and bath option available. There was some noise disturbance due to a group of drunk local teachers galloping down the corridors in the early hours. I had to put the fan on in the room to moderate the heat and this blocked out all corridor noises. Parking is very good here with a selection of spaces in the two large car parks. I enjoyed the walks in the Devils Punchbowl, deer sanctuary and the coast to coast walk. I was eager to complete the 9 mile coast to Coast walk as the weather was poor and many of the fields on route had been flooded. I travelled to Lymington parking my car free of charge in the residential areas. I then proceeded to walk along the footpath to the ferry. There is a cheaper option of the keyhaven ferry at £5.40 but the ferry here cost £11 with the promotional codes. I was able to sit with the dog in the lounge area. The 30 minute crossing was smooth and I loved Yarmouth as it is a quaint fishing village with heaps of character buildings. Overall, the visit was a success but I was disappointed that I had been informed at the time of booking that an upgrade to DBB at £50 would include a free bottle of wine but was denied this at the hotel. It was very misleading and as a regular visitor I did not appreciate the fact that my exact booking was not honoured. I had to call and speak to the booking service before departure which clouded my visit. It was a booking made in advance which should have been upheld.

Room Tip: Ensure the room is not above the pool or the restaurant. Do not choose room 6 and choose a room away...

Booked in for 2 nights, had a very good room, and enjoyed the evening meal and choices of wine, nice small swimming pool, all the staff we met were friendly and helpful.
Nice quiet location but you will need a car to get anywhere as the hotel is out in the middle of the New Forrest.
Looking forward to returning here for anotherstay

Room Tip: you will need a car to get anywhere, to far to walk to Beaulieu or Lynhurst

Nice looking hotel from the start. Friendly welcome and clean entrance. Room quality was good and plenty of tea/coffee extra.
Evening meal was booked and food excellent.
Breakfast equally good quality and choice of eggs to have was very good. Not often are you given a choice but this was excellent again as my wife like fried and I prefer poached.
Checkout was easy and efficient and all of the staff were courteous and friendly. Parking was plentiful but be warned you need to know your reg number.

Room Tip: Rooms at front of building look over the new forest. Plenty of animals to see. Noisy at early evenin...

Stayed for one night with family for a birthday. Check in was speedy and efficient and the rooms clean and airy. We had three rooms which were in the hotel grounds and can best be described as a bungalow which had been divided into three bedrooms each with their own lockable doors but only one door to outside which was fine for us but if you were strangers it could be a bit awkward. Kids activity park close to our rooms which in summer could be noisy.They were having part of the hotel decorated and this meant meals were to be taken at the pub next door which took the shine off our stay a bit but was made up with the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. Breakfast taken in the pub turned out to be fine with plenty of extra tea and toast if needed. A railway station is right next to the hotel which didn't prove a problem in winter with windows and doors closed but could be a little different in summer. Nice and handy if you want to go to London though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the hotel if you are staying as a couple and have no children

We stayed overnight here recently on our way to peppa pig world. The room was big enough for 2 adults, one childs bed and one cot. the restaurant was getting renevated but dinner and breakfast was served i nthe attached pub (which served lovely beer). The pool is very small but for families with small children it is fine. The location was lovely as well, slap right bang in the middle of nowhere (apart from railway station)
