We stayed here for two nights, which was one more than planned. We were exploring the southern counties of Britain as it was an area we had not spent much time in before. Our plan for this one week trip was to stay at gastro pubs to enjoy good quality food and wine. We had just finished two great indulgent cruises so were hoping to continue enjoying our recent standards of quality in both food and lodgings, We were not disappointed. We had booked a particular standard of room (with twin beds) because bed sizes need to be a decent size for me. However, on check in we were told we had been upgraded to another room. Although a little apprehensive that the bed in the upgraded room may be a little too small we were very pleased to find the new room, with its bay window, four poster bed and two wet rooms just perfect. The staff at reception were delightful and helpful. The food at dinner was of a high standard and the choice of wines commendable. While in the restaurant, sitting room or bar you look out on to a delightful garden setting with its very relaxing environment. It is worth staying at least two nights because there is so more to see and do in the New Forest area. We were told the hotel has a free shuttle service to Southampton port so it is convenient if you are arriving a day or so early for a cruise. We enjoyed it so much that we will use it as our pre-cruise hotel before our next cruise rather than staying in Southampton.
