Stanwell House Hotel
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Lymington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Our annual UK golf trip was to Dorset/Hampshire this year. We chose Lymington as our base and I'm very glad we chose The Stanwell House. All the staff were superb as was the food and service. 15 of us ate in The Seafood Restaurant each night and Anna and her team looked after us really well.
Nothing was a problem throughout our stay and I have to say they were some of the nicest hotel staff I have ever had to deal with.All in all they made the whole trip effortless, my thanks to the whole team, you made it one of our best ever golf trips.

We have stayed at Stanwell House a few times over the last couple of years and have always enjoyed ourselves and been treated so well that we decided to hold our Wedding there.

The whole weekend was perfect from the moment we arrived until the day we left.
Our guests also staying in the Hotel said that they loved the place. The rooms, gardens, food and the staff who could not do enough for you. Everything was perfect.


Thank you Stanwell House for making our wedding everything (and more!) that we hoped it would be.

See you soon!

Spent 2 nights as part of a golf trip to the new forest area.
Hotel and staff could not do enough for us, always on hand to help out.
Food was superb and Anna and the team worked very hard to make sure we got the best service available.
There were 15 in the group and all could not fault the attention we received.

We stayed in a suite at Stanwell House for 2 nights in August. The suite (16) was ideal for our needs with a 2 1/2 year old and a 6 month old. Comfy travel cot and the sofa bed in the lounge area was huge for our oldest. The suite itself was lovely and looked out over the garden. on the sunday we'd been advised when booking there was a wedding in the hotel but with the bathroom door shut no noise from the entertainment disturbed us.

Breakfast is highly recommended with a good sized (but not oversized) portion of excellent food on the English breakfast. We had dinner in the hotel on the Monday night and the menu was excellent and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

Overall the location is excellent, the staff are friendly and the food is good. Parking wasn't an issue for us although the hotel's car parking area was usually busy. Only points to note that on the sunday night we ordered room service and the smoked salmon sandwich definitely had never seen either focaccia or ciabatta bread (2 slices of sliced brown bread) and that if putting a young child who is a light sleeper in the lounge area of the suite the window is a skylight which does not have a blind (although this did not prove a problem for us).

Overall would recommend for the friendly staff, location and quality of food. On one of the many deals the hotel offers this represented excellent value for staying in school holidays in the New Forest area.

Room Tip: Suites look really nice and are well worth spending a little more for.

Booked a room for a friends wedding, on booking we were told we had a Georgian room on the top floor. On arrival we were given a garden room with hard flooring. There was a very strong smell of bleach/detox - turns out we have one of the 'dog friendly' rooms, a little like the old days of being put in a smoking room when you don't smoke. They never mentioned this on arrival and when queried just said 'its because they are a pet friendly hotel' ....not a reason in my eyes to keep it from us.

What a wonderful stay, we got an upgrade to a suite which was a lovely room with separate bathroom and sitting area. We parked in the small carpark which was free, there were other pay and display spaces close by if that carpark is full. We decided to stay for dinner, being vegetarian we normally struggle but they have a separate vegetarian menu so we had plenty of choice. We got great starters of goats cheese salad with sides of focaccia and olives - all delicious! For the main course we ordered wild mushroom tortellini which was amazing, with really tasty sauces around the edge of the plate every mouthful was a delight. Really top marks to the chef for producing such wonderful food, more often than not we find even in very good restaurants, meat and fish dishes are great but vegetarian dishes don't live up to expectations. The breakfast was delicious too. All in all we would highly recommend staying and eating at this hotel.

We have just returned from a 2 night break. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Bathrobes in the room would have been perfect and something I would suggest that the hotel consider, we stayed in a garden room and it was very quiet , we got a good nights sleep and thoroughly enjoyed a hearty breakfast. All of the staff were really friendly! Without exception, we were very impressed by the service which was always with a smile! Especially in the fish restaurant. We really enjoyed our stay, we would recommend and would stay again. Situated on the high streets very central and close to local amenities.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7
