Nice surroundings and facilities but

Posted 09-May-2015
Pros: Staff were friendly Room was clean Gym and pool facilities were good
Cons: Steak house!
Location: Location is beautiful, close to ferry for IOW. Many little villages nearby and the great new forest
We chose the hotel bedroom option and the room was like a chalet outdoors, it was very pleasant and what we needed. Twin bed with TV and nice sized bathroom. We decided to go to the steak house for lunch unfortunately, they had no baguettes for lunch. The restaurant itself needs improvement.

A great option with easy access to Lymington

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Cons: in the bar/restaurant, it is very unclear as to whether or not there is table service. The staff do not engage despite clearly seeing you.
We booked as a family of four with two teenage daughters. We were give a family suite which was located very close to the leisure center on the first floor of a two story wing. We were immediate impressed with the room which exceeded our expectations. We were expecting a single room with a king size bed, a roll away single and a fold out couch. We got a large suite with a separate bedroom for my wife and I and two foldout sofas, each the size of a double for the girls. There was plenty of room in addition to this with two arm chairs and a dresser and a ding table for four. A very clean large and airy bathroom topped it off. Being on the top floor the ceiling was vaulted and there were numerous Velux windows providing plenty of light and air. We enjoyed the easy single stop train ride over the harbor into town, walking across the road to the golf course where Hotel guests enjoy a discount, and also lovely walks through the grounds to the harbor with views of Isle of Wight beyond. Excellent for a 3 star hotel

Fabulous Hotel, Beware Of Extra Hidden Charges

Posted 18-Mar-2015 on Hotels
A beautiful period palace for the main building and very comfortable rooms with kitchen facilities (fridge). Excellent spa facilities. Outstanding breakfast buffet. Very nice staff. Beware that the newspapers are not free but they won't tell you when asking if you want them, you only find out when presented with the bill, making it too late to say No thank you to not-complimentary-newspapers. A 'Make A Difference' charge also appeared on the bill but I wasn't explained what it was for.

Nice hotel shame about the food

Posted 04-Nov-2014 on Hotels
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the hotel is on beautiful grounds. My only gripe was the food. We ate in the steak house restaurant and for the price it just wasn't worth it, the meat platter just wasn't anything special. The breakfast was really overpriced too, considering one of us didn't have the cooked breakfast. Would stay there again but look elsewhere for the food.
