Great location to be in. The rooms were fabulous and the staff excellent. A great place to stay to visit the New Forest.

Hotel fairly quite due to heavy snowfall but receptionist Marilyn made us very welcome. We stayed on a sunday night as it was our Wedding Anniversary but wished we had stayed on a Friday because on Saturday there is market on the High Street. Had a nice walk down to the Quay and along the waterfront despite the snow and ice. The quality of the food was excellent. which also seemed to be the view of other diners around us. Vowed to go back in the spring/summer when there are some leaves on the trees.

We stayed in one of the recently completed de luxe suites ( number one ) . Impressive design - modern but a bit funky at the same time . Very comfy - we slept like logs ! We ate in the Seafood restaurant - the tuna tempura was delicious . Plus the little known Urlar wine was a pleasant surprise . For a three star hotel , very good value indeed .

My husband and I stayed from Fri - Mon on the DB&B pakage. This hotel is set right in the middle of the high street in a very impressive building. The staff, food and room were all fantastic. The staff were so helpful and went the extra mile. For one of our days we were going to one of our favourite New Forest attractions and the reception girl looked up the location and wrote down the postcode for us while we had breakfast and even though we said there was no hurry, and we would collect it later, she brought the details in to us during breakfast. The waiting staff were very helpful as I don't eat much seafood/fish but wanted to give it a go, and they were able to offer excellent recommendations and taylor the meal around my fussiness. When there is a do on the Bistro and seafood menus are both served in the Seafood restaurant. There is a new bar to the left as you enter which at first seems compact but there is seating in a side room at the end of the bar next to the entrance. Very attentitive staff always polite and friendly. Our Garden room was a little dated but still very lovely, particulary loved the do not disturb notice method - a special cuddly toy to be left outside! The toys were also available to purchase at reception, which we just had to do. The cleanliness of the room and hotel in general was very good. Rooms were tidied and refreshed each morning.

The hotel has aquired part of the large car park on Cannon Street for their guests. When this is full the larger car park can be used and the price per hour isn't too bad. Other than this, it is possible to Park right outside the hotel onthe high street after 6pm till 8am except on Market Saturday. On arrival the reception offered to park our car for us and pay the cost which we just paid back at the end of our stay should their car park be full (approx 12 spaces only).

Less than 5 mins walk is Lymington Harbour where you can arrange a boat trip, peruse the independant shops or go for a drink or meal. We would suggest the Shipp Inn right on the Harbours front. There's lots of attractions in and around Lymington and the hotel staff can help you with leaflets and look up info for you.

Please ignore the bad reviews about this hotel! It's fabulous and a lovly place to stay.

Thank you to all at Stanwell

Mr & Mrs Chislett


We would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

We stayed for two nights early on in our "try Lymington before we buy" quest to see how we liked the area and treated ourselves to two nights in this town house hotel. Having now stayed in many in the surrounding area we can now compare on rates, quality etc. and Stanwell House rates very high indeed. The decor is quirky a bit of a mis match but thats ok, the location is central, parking can be a bit of an issue only if you make it one, but having lived in London and other city locations that's just how it is, we found it not to be a problem. The room was spacious with enough room for our young son's cot, Grandparents took him off us on the second night so we ate in the seafood restaurant which was outstanding (Lymington is really limited on outstanding places to eat) we have since eaten there again in both restaurants and the quality is consistant if not a little improved on each visit. Staff have changed alot over our 9 months staying in the area but the majority have always been courteous and well trained. we will now be permanant residents in Lymington and look forward to many more special (kid free) evenings!

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Marilyn at the reception desk, I knew it was going to be a lovely stay.

I'm told it's not always easy to get a space in the Hotel's Car Park, but I didn't have any problems on this front, and the Hotel staff (especially Adrian) were very helpful carry the huge amount of luggage that we had.

Despite the fish restaurant being closed for refurbishment, we were still offered its menu as an option. The service was swift, courteous and very helpful, and the food all weekend was fantastic. Our girls thoroughly enjoyed all their meals, which is a novelty in itself!

The Hotel is a great base to explore Lymington, and offers an ideal stop-over on the way to the Isle of Wight

Our room was very comfortable, if a little small for a suite, and extremely quite, which afforded us a great nights sleep on both nights of our stay.

We'll definitely be back soon!

Everything about this hotel was perfect. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful - a lovely airy room with a four poster bed - a very comfortable bed. The room was warm and there was a spacious shower with plenty of hot water. Flat screen TV in the room.
The hotel was located in the heart of Lymington, ideal for exploring the New Forest and surrounding area's. The hotel restaurant served delicious food and again the staff were very nice.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and can't find any faults at all.
