A beautiful building right in centre of town. Staff are excellent. This management does not skimp - my indicators all passed - quality toilet paper, proper mushrooms, not the canned buttons, and real scrambled eggs, not the aneamic rubberised version. Not a big chain looking to squeeze every penny. Did not try the dinner. Parking could be tight for a very large car if you arrive late.

Plus points - very clean, super comfortable bed, lovely location, breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea was excellent
Minus points - room a little small so getting round the bed wasn't as easy as it should be, some constant whirring noise from the refrigeration unit outside, not enough to keep us awake but noticable
Enjoyed our stay at the White Buck which is a very nice hotel with excellent staff. The weather was excellent during our stay which allowed us to make good use of the outdoor areas for breakfast and lunch. Really pleasant grounds with quiet seclusion.
The food was always very good however the menu was a little uninspiring. A bit of development work here would have it up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. Service was also pretty slow in the dining room and it was not particularly busy (Early June).
The room was very clean and well appointed however we did not like the lack of privacy offered by the frosted glass doors to the en suite shower room. We also found the room too warm and the sash windows could only open about 6 inches. Insufficient to let the room cool down.
Overall we had a very enjoyable stay in this really nice hotel which is ideally placed for exploring the new forest.

From the outside first impressions weren't great and peering into the bar section, however staff were friendly, we then got to the rooms! Very spacious and great facilities, it was a nice surprise, a lot better than expected from the outside! Breakfast was great and the waitress was super friendly! I would highlight recommend!
We booked a night as we were visiting the area by car. After finally finding it (the address number is barely 2" high) we parked in front of what looked like a house with no address or signage. We entered and were greeted by a nice lady who confirmed our reservation and gave us a key.
The room was quite small - but nicely appointed. The tiny bathroom was adequate. The bed was quite squishy for my taste, but ended up getting a good nights sleep.
The breakfast the next day was outstanding, and quite the spread. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault.
Family room and swimming pool was ideal for young children. Expectations were low given previous reviews but was surprisingly nice hotel in good location. Breakfast was a little haphazard with vacant staff leaving empty plates on the small table but trying to clear away food that we were still eating! Quality of breakfast was very mediocre also. Other than that a good stay.

Very nice Hotel, I would stay again but maybe room only ! The rooms are really nice and have everything you need, However the Breakfast although cooked to a good standard and presented well, In my opinion could have been half the price. The only other adverse comment would be the choice of Lavender bath products , Not to our taste and probably not to most peoples.
The New Forest covers 144 square miles of unspoiled heath and woodland where ponies, donkeys, deer and cattle still roam freely. It is best explored by bike or on foot. Beaulieu is home to the National Motor Museum and a stately home of monastic origins. Picture-postcard villages include Burley, Brockenhurst and maritime Buckler's Hard. The area's attractive little 'capital' Lyndhurst is home to the New Forest Museum and Visitor Centre.
