“Simply Amazing!!”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Having just come home from this hotel I wanted to write how amazing our time here was. The hotel was fantastic from the minute we turned up. The staff are friendly and nothing is ever to much trouble. The style of the hotel is stunning and our room was lovely with great views over the grounds. The location for us was perfect with just short drives to every "must see" village and town in the new forest. The breakfast was delicious!!! The attached restaurant and bar was great. I would highly recommend the food, we had a meal there in the evening and it was one of the best meals we have had. The bar area has a relaxed feel and a great place to sit and chill in the evenings. If you are considering booking this hotel... DO IT you won't regret it, the new owner was really friendly and seems to be developing and great reputation. I have no doubt this hotel will soon be the best in the area by a clear mile. We just cant wait to come back and for us that's got to be a first.

This is a very different hotel to many, but a little gem in the New Forest. A Great country hotel, with a lovely bar/restaurant - not your average city tourist type of hotel. We attended a family wedding on Fri 22nd March and as others have commented a great venue for a wedding, and we had a great day there. We stayed in the main hotel, just above the main function room. A few issues on check-in caused some stress, but all was resolved, and we just managed to get ready for the wedding in time, with minutes to spare. Breakfast food was average, breakfast service was below average with us having to ask for everything - cutlery, wrong food delivered, food not cooked as requested, and very limited selection of things like juices, pastries, fruit. If breakfast was improved I would have given East Close Hotel an 'excellent' rating.

We have always loved the Hotel building, location & interior furnishings & enjoyed dining here on several occasions. We were therefore delighted to be able to secure the venue for our Daughter's Wedding on 16th March 2013.

All bridal party & guests expressed what a wonderful, happy & enjoyable occasion it was & many stayed at the Hotel overnight. We offer our sincere thanks & compliments to the attentive & friendly staff who ensured our day was memorable & very special.

At a wedding here on Fri 22 Mar and stayed in the adjoining Conqueror.Firstly the Hotel itself is set in an ideal position,has a good feel to it and the rooms though on the small side are clean, neat, and comfortable with all facilities. There is a comfortable bar and lounge area with a good variety of drinks, reasonably priced and the quality, choice and service at breakfast was first class. Turning to the WEDDING- the logistics of the Hotel are excellent with great rooms, bar and plenty of space- its an ideal venue. The biggest asset though was the fantastic organisation and customer focus throughout by the staff and full marks to all, but word must be mentioned of 'Nicola' the main event organiser who was affable, friendly, professional and very efficient in every part of the day- making it an excellent experience. This was as good a wedding that I have been to and full marks to all at the Eastclose who made it happen - I would return again and its well recommended.

Thanks for your lovely review, I think you allocated one of our 4 budget doubles to you which are a little small. Next time you visit, let me know and I will make sure you are in one of our amazing house rooms.

Went here for family wedding on 23rd March 2013,weather not good but hotel and venue made up for this.Ceremony was in a nice quiet and pretty room. The wedding breakfast had a Lewis Carroll theme to it which is in keeping with the hotels history. Food,service and attention to detail was excellent. Hotel was spacious so if you wanted to have a quiet drink there was a lovely bar with a real fire that was reasonably priced especially for the grandeau of the venue.We stayed in the hotel after the wedding and what a nice surprise this was. Bedroom large with scenic rooms as was the bathroom which also had an excellent shower. The full cooked breakfast was scrumptious as were all the extras and came as a nice surprise as it all came inclusive with the room. All staff great and could not do enough for you. Would not hesitate in using this hotel again

My fiancé and myself stayed at the hotel for two nights 17th March until the!19th March as part of a deal for bed breakfast and evening meal on one of the nights, this was a fantastic deal as the hotel and all the staff were fantastic with us very helpful and nothing was to much trouble, the meal was off the a la carte menu and not just a cheap option, the food was of very high quality. The room was very nice and we even got a free upgrade which always helps.
Overall our experience was one of chilled out fine dining in the new forest which has a lot to offer and this hotel is ideally situated to accommodate this expariance.thanks Niki and everybody else that made our stay so special
