My finance', his little girl of 6 and I stayed for four nights in a family room at the Forest Park. The room itself was quite small for a family room but contained a double bed and two singles. We had a good view over the garden including what was the swimming pool which has now been filled in (see my photo). The beds are warm but mattresses too soft so we all slept quite badly and woke up most mornings with backache . The room itself very floral and in need of an update. The bathroom was clean but there was mold in the grout around the bath. Basic TV facilities included together with a kettle and tea/coffee replenished everyday (aside from the day before we left). Bathroom toiletries were half used and not replaced per set of guests.
Staff friendly and helpful re check in, dinner reservations and check out. Breakfast was included in our rate save the child's breakfast which we were unaware of on arrival. This was charged at £5 per day. A lot for a bowl of cereal and some raisins. Choices were limited for the non cooked breakfast option to 3/4 choices of cereal, white/brown toast in a rack (not replenished when finished) some melon, nuts and raisins, fresh white/brown bread and tea or coffee (also not replenished). This was charged at £6.95. Cooked breakfast option charged at £11.95 (a lot).
Location good but the hotel is on a main road into Brockenhurst. The parking is limited at the front of the hotel and is first come, first serve and is free. We ate only in the bar and the food nice but a little overpriced for portion size. We looked at the restaurant menu but it was too limited, again overpriced and nothing suitable for children.
