“New Years Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

I would like to thank you for a wonderful New Years Eve 2013/14 enjoyed by my wife and I and our friends. We all found the venue, the atmosphere, the warm welcome, the excellent service and particularly the food a joy.
Please continue that beautiful 8 course taster menu for as long as possible - wonderful, the best we have tasted for a long time.
Many thanks and best wishes - Clive Holmes.

We stayed at Stanwell House this christmas with friends and could not fault our stay. Lovely staff, really nice rooms, great food - just a perfect stay.
Would recommend the Georgian rooms at the front of the hotel, lots of character.

Stayed one night between Christmas and New Year. Well placed hotel right on the High Street. Reasonable sized room, spotlessly clean with good sized shower. Our room (no 36) had a view over the roof tops to the Marina. Dined in the Sea Food restaurant which had a good choice of fresh fish which tasted lovely with great service. Had drinks in the bar after (small but nice). Breakfast was good too. A slight wait (15 mins) as Dining Room was very busy but plenty of tea/coffee/ while you wait. (Eggs Benedict were superb) We made a point of chatting to all the staff we met and they really were very efficient/professional whilst remaining very friendly. Lymington itself was very pleasant with plenty of shopping, good walks and a couple of nice pubs. We would not hesitate in returning to Stanwell House.

For a friend's birthday, we decided Stanwell House would be the ideal location for afternoon tea. It didn't disappoint us! A delightful, relaxing and airy setting, friendly, helpful staff and a fantatsic selection of delicious cakes and sandwiches. We will definitely return.

Just back from a lovely trip to Lymington and would go to Stanwell House again.
Nice, smart hotel with aspects of the old character (staircases). Lovely rooms, clean , modern, with everything you would want from a good hotel.
The Bar is nice, small but functional, we had lovely cocktails in there, they have a sister Bistro two minutes away too.
We ate in the Bistro restaurant, great food, excellent service. I had pork, my partner the steak, we washed it down with a nice Pinot Noir.
Breakfast was great, the Grand Breakfast was good, the continental breakfast looked good too.
We had room 23, which was fine but my partner is a light sleeper, so we would not have a room on the High Street again.
But would definitely stop at the Stanwell again when we next visit Lymington :)

I booked an evenings stay for family and friends to celebrate my Parents 60th Wedding Anniversary. The whole experience was perfect, starting with the excellent attention from the Reservations Manager followed by a professional and friendly greeting from the reception staff. The facilities were well appointed, extremely comfortable and the food was exceptional. I will most defeinately enjoy future stays there. Well done Stanwell House Hotel.

My husband and I stayed in room 34 which was a suite for a treat after getting married. Absolutely stunning! Tastefully decorated in black and white, the bathroom on its own sold it for me without the bedroom and lounge areas! A great base to explore Lymington. The food was delicious and without a doubt the most beautifully presented breakfast I have ever seen in my life! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were courteous and polite without being obtrusive. I can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

Room Tip: As long as you're OK with stairs room 34 is stunning!
