The room was lovely and spacious. We enjoyed the roof terrace and the little touches in the room like the fudge and gin etc. Lovely area, so peaceful and some lovely walks nearby. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and it was good that we were allowed to have our breakfast in our room as an alternative to coming down to the restaurant. Breakfast was delicious by the way! My only tip would be to offer a few more lighter options food wise for when you don’t want a full meal. Given there is no shop in walking distance but sometimes you just want a smaller bite to eat. All in all a lovely weekend away here.

The best spot in the New Forest!
Second stay at Spot. Came in the off-season this time so it was quieter and not as sunny out, but once again we had a great time. The hotel is very well located. A minute's walk and you're in the forest. The local attractions/landmarks are a short cycle/drive away, with some small local pubs within a short walk too. Being on the outside of Lyndhurst you don't have to plan for the traffic if you go further out either. Food was excellent once again. All of the menus are well thought-out, packed with local produce, and a good mix of traditional and unique/signature options. The veggie/vegan options are just as tasty and creative, definitely not afterthoughts. The staff were all friendly, welcoming and as helpful as they could possibly be, and were a real highlight of this visit. The Shepherd's hut was awesome. Super cosy thanks to the electric log burner, comfy bed, and had a power shower, Nespresso machine (+kettle), big fridge, plus decent Wi-Fi, a smart TV, and a DAB radio. On top of the usual complementary tea/coffee there were Nespresso pods and some local/handmade items which was a welcoming touch. Spot is already very dog friendly, but the hut with its personal outdoor garden area makes it even better for any furry visitors. The huts are well-sheltered around mature trees and hedges, so in windy/rainy weather they were still quiet. Hearing the owls at sunset was really cool too! I can't recommend Spot enough. We'll be back again for sure!

The hotel itself is quirky and rather lovely. The toiletries are a delight. The bed was much softer than what I an used to, and so a little uncomfortable. The dining room staff need further training. Our waitress refused to take our meal order with our drinks order, saying she had to take food orders from guests in the order in which they arrived in the restaurant. So we had to wait another 15 minutes whilst another table made up its mind. Fortunately the chef seemed to have no such qualms and our food, once ordered, did not take long to arrive.
