When? One night, September 2013.
Why? A brief visit to the Scorpion RIBS factory (boat manufacturer).
Cost? Less than the published rate - a bargain in my view!
The room: clean, comfortable and spacious with a small en-suite shower/toilet.
In room facilities: fridge, tea/coffee, toiletries, free Wi-Fi, small TV.
The bed and bedding: clean and comfortable.
Breakfast: the food, excellent, served in a sociable environment.
Common areas: kitchen on the ground floor and a charming sitting room on the first floor.
Parking: adjoining the property.
Host: Tobi - very efficient and welcoming.
The décor of Britannia House (I stayed in the main house, not the overflow accommodation across the road) is , shall we say, 'non-standard' and will not therefore appeal to everyone. Likewise Tobi the host and owner, who for some may be regarded as slightly eccentric. However, if you are the type of person who prefers individuality and character the Britannia and Tobi are the perfect choice for short term accommodation in Lymington in my view and I will certainly return. Based on my one night stay I see no justification for negative reviews. Keep up the excellent work Tobi and enjoy your upcoming family holiday.
