My husband and I decided to have a short trip away in the new forest with our two and a half year old daughter. He chose this hotel on the internet due to its location. Having not been to this part of the country before we were very pleasantly surprised. We had three very busy days, including a 17 mile bike ride through the forest recommended by the hotel staff, and we also took our daughter to Paultons park which is an expensive day out but well worth it. After our busy days my husband and i relaxed in the beautiful hotel gardens whilst our daughter roamed around very contentedly taking in all the suroundings including deer coming into the garden one morning!
The staff were all very friendly and the food was fantastic, we chose to eat in the bar each night and our daughter was very well catered for! Very good selection of food and the breakfast was superb!
The only critism I have to add is I feel the rooms need updating. (we stayed in room 28 overlooking the garden). Damp patches were on the walls and the furniture abit shabby. Lastly the bathroom had clearly not been cleaned to the standard they should have with hairs found in the bath and sweet wrappers on the floor behind the bathroom door.
However, overall a lovely stay and great for kids and we would return to the hotel again.
