We stayed here on a last minute booking, and after reading some of the bad reviews i was a bit sceptical of how the weekend was going to go..
To be fair the hotel is dated, very dated in places. The bathroom in our room was a mix of shocking tiles and terribly dated suite and fittings. the room was very large and had everything you'd need although the decor here was also a few decades behind, with pipework boxed in all over the room, and therefore the constant sound of water running through the pipes day and night.
That said. We really enjoyed our trip to the newforest. All the staff we encountered were happy polite and helpful, everything was clean and tidy, and the service and breakfast was excellent.
The location is great you're right on the edge of the town with the small town centre an easy stroll away for local shops and pubs. whilst your far enough away to hear no road traffic of a night. and you can also walk straight into the new forest, with all the horses, dear, cows and the odd pig just a gentle stroll away..
A perfect location to explore the forest, which is really why you've come to visit the area !?
