“Eye wateringingly expensive but worth it..”
Reviewed 19 September 2007

We chanced upon Tylney Hall when we'd exhausted all opportunities to get accommodation in the New Forest, not knowing the area we had no idea what to expect but the blurb said the hotel is set in 67 acres of beautifully maintained grounds so we decided to give it a go. Heading through the rush hour traffic in Reading we were tired and ready for a drink and some down time so it was a relief when the traffic cleared and we found ourselves passing through leafy villages on our way to Rotherwick and Tylney Hall.

What immediately strikes you as you turn off the lane and into the long drive up to the Hotel is how immaculately maintained the grounds are, Redwoods and Cedar trees, manicured lawns and smooth tarmac lead you to the Courtyard with its central playing fountain at the front of this old and extensive mansion house. Its all hugely impressive from the outside. And no less so when you go in. Friendly efficient staff great you as though you're a guest and not an annoying but neccessary interuption to their day.

We had a suite (No 23) which although a little old fashioned was huge with a large lounge area overlooking the Croquet lawn, a big and very grand bathroom with spa bath and a large if sparsly furnished bedroom. All very comfortable with tea and coffee, champagne, and a tin of biscuits. The Champagne and Chocolates plus a little welcome card make it that extra bit special. On the negative side the built in wardrobes couldn't be used because they smelled of moth balls and old dry timber, there was no air conditioning which given that the weather was hot and sunny meant we had to open all the windows - something I regreted when we had to evict the biggest spider I've seen in the Uk from our bed at 3 in the morning !!

Dinner was first class, great service from great staff in a nice restaurant area. A pianist gives the whole experience a classical upmarket feel.

We liked the place so much we chose to stay an extra night. As our suite had been booked we were moved to another this time a 'garden room' away from the main hotel, it was a fair walk and as the paths are gravel you can't wheel your case although to be fair the porter did offer to take them, we just chose to take them ourselves. This Suite was a lttle smaller (119) but still with separate lounge and a nice view of the gardens.

As for facilities, Indoor and outdoor pools, gym, solarium its all there for you.

The bill topped £1,000 for the two nights but standard rooms would have reduced this considerably and from what we've seen they all look to be of a high standard anyway.

In summary, some Hotels of this class can be pretentious and difficult to relax in as a result, not so Tylney Hall, its a beautiful Hotel in a fabulous setting with clearly happy and friendly staff. Walk through the grounds, take coffee by the croquet lawn and just enjoy the peace and tranquility of England at its finest.

Our thanks to all the staff for a fab weekend we'll never forget. See you again in the near future.

Just spent the most amazing weekend at this hotel - absolutely everthing was perfect. I have never seen such professional staff, each member was polite and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was everything we could have wished for. From the moment you drive up the sweeping drive and see the majestic hotel, nothing disappoints. I was a little concerned about a couple of reviews talking about the tierd and dated decor but we found it exactly as you would expect in a country house hotel.

The restaurant food was fantastic, we both had the most delicious beef (mine was a steak, my husband's was from the carvery) that we have had for a very long time. The atmosphere in the restuarant was also very good, with candle light and a pianist.

The grounds are well worth spending a couple of hours in and the leisure factilities were clean and well equipped.

In all a fantastic place for a romantic get away from it all - I can thoroughly recommend it!
