“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

We have just had a long weekend at this hotel, the staff were very attentive,the food we had was great the evening meal in the seafood restaurant was superb!! My only criticism is that someone has clearly gone to great lengths to update the room we stayed in but the lack of shelves in the bathroom and the tired furniture in the room let it down. Our over all stay though was great and would recommend this hotel as a great base to explore the area. 10 out of 10 for food!

superb gem of a hotel, staff were friendly. Upgrade to a suite was fantastic (16) Friday 7th Oct. TV trouble in room was no issue at all. Evening meal was fantastic, quality and service were all excellent. Small boutique atmosphere, oils burning in reception, amazing smells . Rooms were a fine blend of opulence and comfort. Just go and you will not be disappointed.

A wedding at nearby Macdonald Elmers Court lured myself and Mrs. Electric to Lymington in August 2011. And it was the decision of Mrs. Electric to stay here at Stanwell House.
Well it must be said that she chose very well. Check in was efficient and the receptionist hid her surprise at my appearance (almost) successfully. The downstairs of the hotel is very well presented with a small bar at the front and a covered courtyard and breakfast room towards the rear.
We stayed in the suite which I believe is room number 17 and were very pleased with it. It has a lovely calming atmosphere and is decorated in vaguely gothic colours complete with black flowers. Do not be put off by this. The suite has a beautiful feel to it and has a very comfortable bed.
After the wedding we returned to the hotel to find that the bar was still open.The bar gentleman was not only welcoming and convivial but also extremely skilled in his placement of his customers. A huge thank you and top marks to him.
Breakfast was served at a reasonable time in the morning and was very nice indeed. Hot, fresh and plentiful and served with a smile.
Would we return? Most definately. It isn't cheap, but taking into account what you get for your money I would have to say this is a wonderful place to stay.

This is a lovely hotel in the heart of Lymington. We had a suite backing on to the gardens which was very quiet, spacious, beautifully decorated and with a lovely bathroom.
The staff were all very attentive and the service faultless.
Excellent breakfast.
The small car park is quite a bonus especially as we stayed on a Friday night and so parking in the High Street is not possible as there is a market on Saturday.
Unfortunately we did not get to try the restaurant on this occassion but would definately like to try it next time.

We have stayed at Stanwell House twice in the last two months. We found the hotel via Red Letter Days as I had a voucher to use. One of the appeals was that we could take the dog with us. We enjoyed the first stay so much we booked a three day Gourmet Break for the second stay. On both occasions we found the staff the be very attentive and friendly. We used the conservatory for breakfast and dinner as we could take the dog with us. Not something we are used to doing when staying in any Hotel. The food was excellent with a wide selection available. We had a garden room for the first visit which was very comfortable and always well serviced. For the second stay we had a Garden Suite. This was very luxurious and comfortable. Excellent décor and again always well serviced.

Well place in the High Street the Hotel is ideal for exploring both the New Forest and the Beaches with some wonderful walks.

We will be back to enjoy both the hotel and the area.

I would just like to say what a beautiful hotel Stanwell House is. We were visiting our friends in Lymington and stayed one night at the Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and the room was wonderful. Great decor with everything you could need. I loved the covered courtyard and our friends came and joined us for breakfast in the morning which was lovely. Marilyn, on reception, was extremely friendly and helpful - she even carried my bag, and I'm definitely older than her!! We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting Lymington. Very central, with two restaurants and a cosy bar - although we didn't visit either as had made other plans. Will be back again soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite (no. 16) which was lovely and the bed was sooooo comfortable

Quirky Ok hotel with the strangest reception encountered so far 'come hither boy'
The hand held shower runs hot and cold and I could have got a better wash at home and not fork out £150.00
Attic twin room very small but quirky but the food and service in restaurant is very good.

Room Tip: ask for one?
