We had a weekend break at Rhinefield House, we'd just got married and this hotel certainly provided a beautiful setting in which to have a short, relaxing break.
We stayed in Sparrowhawk, a really lovely room, modern, tasteful with views out into the forest.
The staff were helpful and courteous and little details like remembering our name made it a special break.
Sadly the hotel was badly let down by the food which was pretty poor. For breakfast we had Eggs Benedict which was watery on a quarter slice of processed ham served on top of a toasted muffin. The following morning we chose the full English breakfast which was much better.
Dinner was equally disappointing, we started with Vietnamese Spring Roll (£10.50). It was served on a wooden slab, decorated with a few salad leaves and a swirl of balsamic vinegar. The Spring Roll itself was just one, icy cold, tiny pancake roll half filled with crunchy vegetables. Very pretty but I can't imagine it cost more than 50p to prepare.
We tried the risotto, which was a odd consistency, more like porridge than risotto.
Service was excellent and the staff were delightful though.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Like a magical secret, Rhinefield House is located deep within the New Forest National Park. Step inside and the aura of magic simply deepens - and nowhere more spectacularly than in the Alhambra Room, bedecked in glittering jewels. With beautiful surroundings and a blend of Tudor and Gothic architecture, Rhinefield is the most perfect fairytale wedding venue. It is also the ideal setting for an indulgent break and an inspiring conference venue for meetings, team building or product launches. Downtime means the chance to take in the great outdoors we have on our doorstep, whether its pony trekking, long walks in the forest or a day trip to the sea. ... more less
