“Lovely break!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

Lovely, comfortable break in a wonderful secluded setting on the egde of the New Forest.

Rooms were clean, and beds were very comfortable, staff were also extremely friendly and helpful.

Food was top notch, couldn't fault it, very reasonably priced and a faily good variety of dishes from which to choose

Although I only got 1 night here, I wouldn't hesitate to come back here in the future. Wonderful hotel in which to stay!

Room Tip: The 'family room', which is more of a suite has a large double bed, large wardrobe with bath...

We stayed here for 2 days at the end of September 2011 (in the late summer sizzler weather). The location is wonderful. Our room (what they call a "Keeper" room) was pleasant, it was small (but I knew it would be from the description), with the en-suite being a small shower and toilet behind a sliding door. The only rather odd thing was that the sink was actually in the bedroom (a vanity-style unit). We were in Room 11 on the top floor - this was rather warm in the unseasonably hot weather, but there was a fan already provided in the bedroom. We were on a dinner, B&B package and ate in the hotel on both nights. The food was delicious, beautifully cooked and presented by excellent waiting staff (unlike the previous reviewer who said they waited 25 mins between courses). Highlights were the pan-seared haunch of venison my husband had, which was the best he had ever eaten and my duck breast was fabulous. The sardine bruschetta with tomato salsa was so good, he had it both nights and the ice creams that accompanied the desserts (banana and burnt orange) were some of the best I have eaten. The grounds are lovely and are a very peaceful place to wind down after a busy day sightseeing in the New Forest. One morning we saw some of the pigs, that are let out this time of year to feast on the (plentiful) acorns, in the surrounding forest by the car park (the actual gardens are fenced off). We did not use the pool (it looked very small). If I had to make one suggestion, it would be a fresh fruit salad or melon at breakfast rather than dried prunes or apricots - the bacon and sausage at breakfast is (again) some of the nicest we have tasted. A really lovely place to stay - if you can afford it, go for a bigger room. Air con in the rooms (it is in the restaurant) would be a nice addition, but in an old building like this I guess it may not be very easy to install.

Room Tip: I booked on the internet - it may be worth ringing the hotel to find out exactly how the room is lai...

Thank you for your lovely review, we are so glad you enjoyed your break and enjoyed the food in our restaurant.

The pigs you mention come out for 'pannage'. From around the third week in September each year for a couple of months, the famous New Forest ponies, cattle and donkeys are joined by another group of animals – pigs.

Commoners let their pigs loose on the Forest to hoover up fallen acorns which are poisonous to ponies and cattle and can cause internal bleeding and death. The pigs also eat beech mast, crab apples and anything else they can find.

We look forward to seeing you again.

My wife and I stayed one night and wished we had longer. Very comfortable and good size room with large balcony. Food and service was good and the staff very helpful. The room was clean but there were a couple of dirty glasses on the balcony.

Room Tip: Not sure about wheelchair access, but I have mobility problems and the staff were very accommodating...

I chose the Moorhill to rest after illness. The location is superb, the hotel is not. My 1st room was ground floor, near the pool. Dark and depressing. My 2nd room was in the attic - dark and depressing and given to me in error - hence a move to my 3rd room which was also in the attic. I attach a photo of the quality of the duvet - pockets of lumps of filling. I was told this was a new duvet ! There is no soundproofing whatsoever - I had to wear ear plus to block out snoring from the next room. The whole building creaks - every stair/every ceiling/every door. Do you like children running about and using the hotel piano as a toy - then this is the place for you. I attach a photo of a typical croissant served at breakfast and you should expect to wait 25 minutes between courses at evening meal. My 7 day stay was cut to 5 because I had simply had enough. My complaints were sent to Christine Turner, who responded with a standard apology and an offer of 1 nights B&B ! My 2nd email to her was ignored as she decided "there was nothing else she could do". How about giving me my money back?

Room Tip: There isn't one

Visit this week was great! Stunning surroundings! Wild horses roaming:-)
Only slight problem was being on the 3rd floor with 2 2year olds!
Staff reccomemded the queens head pub, a beautiful 10 min walk. This was the only activity of our stay that we would avoide completely if you have small children. The staff were rude, very unhelpful with baby seats, the macaroni cheese from baby menu was uneatable and made 1 of the 2 year olds gag!
Apart from the queens head we had a fantastic stay! And will be staying again the next time we visit peppa pig!:-)

This hotel is perfect for a short family break. We stayed for three nights, with a fellow family of four visiting the New Forest. Even though there were two weddings on the weekend we stayed, the staff were excellent in spite of the hotel being extra busy.
The family rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast were fine, and the pool sufficient to keep the kids happy.
The front lawns with badminton and croquet help smaller children blow off a bit of steam when needed.
Overall, a great experience. and recommended for a super base for a family weekend in the New Forest

My partner and I booked a special deal, 3 nights for the price of 2, just as a break from the hustle and bustle of life.The hotel is tucked away, on the outskirts of Burley village, along a long unmade lane.Lovely lawns and gardens, with croquet and badmington.Staff were so friendly and attentive. We had a newly refurbished Algister room,which was immaculate.Evening meal, included , in a £22 voucher,was cooked to perfection,and beautifully presented.The local lamb wonderful.Again the restaurant staff were happy and there for your every need. Tiny indoor pool and sauna...ok. We will definately visit again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for Algister rooms
