Booked a 2 day spa break here in Nov 2012 and had a brilliant time. There were no faults what so ever. Room, spa facilities, breakfast, massages everything was of a high quality. Will be returning for another visit soon :)

Mrs H needed a relaxing break and got one. She really enjoyed the spa and even I thought it was good, although it’s not really my thing. The tepidarium was our favourite – a cool room with heated, contoured, tile beds that radiate warmth up through your body. The spa was all atmospheric lighting and trickling water although there were a few mosaic tiles missing here and there if I was being picky. Nice swimming pool and the changing facilities were good, although we spent much of our time in dressing gowns. Roaring log fire in the lounge and wide selection of magazines provided. Food in the restaurant was excellent and all the staff we met were very pleasant, especially the waiters. For breakfast I would recommend ordering fresh from the menu rather than selecting from the buffet. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms in the old part of the house are nicer.

My husband and I indulged in the Careys Manor New Year's Eve break and it was absolutely wonderful!
We could not fault a thing room the impressive room (we stayed in an Oakwood Garden Room) to the fantastic customer service and amazing food!
The staff really excelled themselves, particularly on New Year's Eve where we thoroughly enjoyed a delicious banquet dinner and a party to remember.
We also took full advantage of the superior Spa facilities and made the most of the beautiful surrounding New Forest area, leaving fully relaxed and feeling very spoilt!
We would wholly recommend this hotel and will absolutely be returning for another visit!

Here on business and the service and organisation from the more "management" side of the hotel is first class. The "lower ranks" however lack the same attention to customer service and excellence.....occasionally coming over as rude and impatient.

Food was OK. Always challenging with a large party but I have had better and for the price I would expect better.

Rooms are nice, spacious, well decorated and, in the case of my ground floor room not too hot or stuffy with a door that opens to the middle garden area.

Didn't get to use the Spa facilities whilst here but I get the impression that the price of the hotel is justified by the Spa rather than it being a nice extra.

In summary, a nice hotel but unless you are into the whole Spa thing I'd probably give it a miss.

Thank you for your candid feedback following your recent stay at Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa.

I am disapointed to learn that any member of the team left you feeling nothing but pampered and looked after during your stay with us, feedback that will most certainly be useful in helping us uphold our exacting service standards throughout.

I am however, pleased that you enjoyed your stay overall and hope we may have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the future.

Stayed at this hotel overnight on 17th jan. hotel is beautiful and old country house like. The spa is out of this world! And staff in the spa are very welcoming and friendly especially nhoun!
The food in the main restaurant deserves the rosette :) the food and service is wonderful. The same for the zen didnt use the bistro as was closed. We did feel the food was pricey considering you paid alot for the actual stay. Average price for stay and treatment cost us £350. Dinner came to £80 and lunch £50. So nearly £500 for one night!
You need to come with a big wallet!
The only thing we did find a bit annoying was the fact that their was no evening entertainment even just a piano player or tv chillout room or anything! as after dinner its straight to bed, theirs a bar but that can get boring for just two people....!
I would come again but next time just do a spa day rather then an overnight.

Careys Manor is in a fantastic location for walking, cycling, etc in heart of the beautiful New Forest. Set back off the road the hotel is blissfully quiet. We were greeted by efficient, friendly concierge and receptionists. Our room was perfect, having everything we needed and a large comfortable bed. The choice of restaurants caused a dilema as they all sounded delicious - perfect opportunity to drink cocktails in front of the roaring fire while studying all 3 menus! We opted for the Thai and really enjoyed our meal, the service and ambience in the restaurant.
We visited the Senspa both days and having never been to a spa did not know what to expect. We loved the Hydro pool, it was soooo relaxing. Again staff were efficient, helpful and friendly and the spa is beautifully finished/presented.
A huge choice for breakfast all of which looked delicious and we enjoyed everything we chose.
We were just gutted we only had one night at Careys Manor and hope to return soon!

This was a birthday treat and we were really looking forward to it. As it was a special birthday my husband arranged for a glass of champagne when we arrived. At reception we were told that the champagne would arrive the next day at the spa. We were disappointed but philosophical. In the restaurant there was confusion about which menu we should be given and we noticed others were given a menu that included soup (we always choose soup if its on the menu). It was too late by then for us to change our order. The following morning at breakfast our orders were muddled and we ended up moving food around on each others plates. Then in the spa we filled in our questionnaires, noticed that others were receiving welcome drinks of tea, and waited in the reception area for our champagne. It didn't come. In fact, we eventually went to ask about towels and the code for the door, and decided to try not to get upset about the champagne. Then we couldn't sit by the pool because all of the chairs and loungers had been reserved with towels and belongings. The spa was good, and the therapists were excellent, as was the mind and body class teacher. The staff were all friendly. We just felt as if we had been forgotten. No-one mentioned the birthday, even though we filled in a questionnaire with dates of birth. The champagne never arrived. The whole experience fell flat. The room was nice, although there was only one tiny bottle of body wash and one tiny bottle of shampoo per day for two people. People book experiences like this for special occasions. Perhaps this hotel could try to realise that. I'm afraid I can't recommend the hotel and I don't want to go there again.
