It was really nice to discover a genuine doggy friendly hotel. Our room was warm & comfortable with a nice big four poster bed. Hotel was quiet and has several reception areas to relax in. Our...

We had to eat our meals in the bar area, which was no problem because we had our dog with us, but it would have been... More

Found all staff very friendly and helpful, nice size room, very comfortable. Breakfast was good, nice swimming pool. Ideal quiet location, only 5 minute walk to Lyndhurst with a couple of nice pubs and places to eat, also close to other lovely places to visit in the New Forest. Will definitely be visiting again
