We have just returned from a one night stay with cream tea and dinner at this hotel - a Christmas gift from our daughter.
The welcome was warm when we checked in. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and also provided the additional comfort of two armchairs and small table. The flat screen tv was a good size, the bed was extremely comfortable. Cream tea on arrival was delicious and welcome. Dinner in the evening was really good - the only slight criticism was that the service was quite slow.
All in all, a delightful hotel.

- Welcome to The Bell Inn, which has been part of my family since 1782. Inside we have made stylish updates to our historic New Forest hotel without spoiling any of its traditional and rustic charm. With open fireplaces, flagstone floors, elegant reception rooms and two superb 18-hole golf courses we are unlike other hotels in Hampshire. With nature’s larder on the doorstep our team of talented chefs create seasonal specials, mouth-watering menus, and have unique access to game from our family’s New Forest estate – a true ‘Estate to Plate’ dining experience. Whether staying in one of our 28 tasteful rooms, enjoying local ale whilst relaxing on comfortable sofas in our dog friendly bar, dining with us exploring the flavours of the New Forest or playing a round of golf on our New Forest Hotel's oldest course, we look forward to welcoming you to this timeless and magical place. ... more less
