A lovely location so perfect for discovering the New Forest. Very welcoming from the minute we entered to leaving, our Breakfast on both days was great 1st morning you ordered and 2nd morning which was on Saturday was a buffet but you could still order food off of the menu which I did ( scrambled eggs ) and it was no bother , we had an evening meal on first evening which was lovely the waiters were so helpful and even gave us a free desert wine, as we had to wait a little bit for our main.
We stayed in a new refurbished room and it was lovely, you could not hear the traffic that much, YOU are out in the country and it is on a main road in and out of the New Forest so a bit of noise is understandable, I am sure we have noise at home, but have gotten use to it .
We went to the Green Dragon pub across the road on 2nd evening for a meal and my partner had New York Stack which did look good and he said was excellent. Lovely little pub great food and atmosphere.
Overall we had a great stay and will be going back later in the year to do some more exploring of the area and surrounding places.
