My partner and I stayed here for a night in August as we wanted to do some walking, cycling and relaxing in the New Forest. The location of the hotel is great - you can walk through the garden and straight into the New Forest.
We received a friendly welcome and were shown to our deluxe double room, which was quite nice. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom was generally good. The only problem was the shower - it was great in the evening, but for a while in the morning there was no water at all - not ideal when you're standing there with shampoo in your hair and unable to wash it off! There was some noise from the corridor outside - banging doors etc - but I suppose this is pretty much unavoidable in most hotels.
We ate in the hotel restaurant, which was a good experience. We were served drinks in the lounge area overlooking the gardens while we looked at the menu. The service was great, and so was the food, especially the plate of four yummy desserts which we shared.
Overall, I'd highly recommend the New Forest for walking and cycling, and if we return I'd be happy to stay in this hotel again.
