Lovely hotel set back from the road

Posted 13-Jun-2016
Location: About 10 minutes walk to the village green with good pubs and shops. Well worth doing the trip to Hurst Castle.
Lovely hotel, set back from the road just on the way into Milford on Sea, with large grounds overlooking fields. Good sized room with extra large bed and modern bathroom (although wardrobe unit in room needs updating). Friendly helpful staff and reasonable priced restaurant.

Good place to stay at a sensible price.

We were visiting family, so we didn't use the hotel facilities much. The staff were very pleasant and efficient. The room was large and clean with a good en-suite. The cooked breakfasts were excellent but quite pricey.

A pleasant weekend break

Posted 28-Apr-2016 on Hotels
my friend and I came for a weekend break with our dogs away from our families. We were very comfortable with good facilities and cream teas and excellent breakfasts. We were a bit disappointed with the limited evening meal menu and dined out instead.WE enjoyed the extensive grounds although it was very cold.

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry you find the evening menu limited, we offer a table d'hôtel style menu which is 2 course or 3 course price, plus our main menu has 14 different main courses along with various starters & puddings and there is a bar menu offering sandwiches and salads. If there is something you prefer chef is always willing to discuss menus with you.

The location was good for Lymington and attending the Boat jumble and Beaulieu Motor Museum. The hotel had a very comfortable lounge/bar area which has been modernised. Our room was spacious with two arm chairs and nice view across the fields. However the bed was very uncomfortable and we would not have wanted to spend longer there because of this. Staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel has a very unusual system whereby it is not possible to pay for your room in advance if you wish to leave early morning before the front desk is manned. We would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry your bed was uncomfortable, if you had mentioned this to us we could have changed the mattress. I'm also sorry for the reception team not allowing payment the night prior, it is possible and I will investigate this further with them. We hope to see you again.

Newly refurbished, under new management

Posted 16-Apr-2016
Pros: The newly refurbished bar and restaurant areas, plus our shiny, new bathroom!
Cons: There are still areas to be worked on, but these have been planned for.
Location: The hotel is about 1 mile outside Milford on Sea, which is very picturesque. Hurst Castle is worth a visit by boat, Milford Tennis Club is nearby!
We have stayed here twice before and found the hotel to be old-fashioned and dated. However, the new owners have completely refurbished the downstairs, providing a modern, welcoming reception area, restaurant and new bar area. The rooms are partly refurbished, with new bathrooms, and there are plans to complete the rest of the rooms in the future. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the food was excellent in the new restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
