My wife and I have just returned from a one night stay. Despite the absolutely beautiful decor and furnishings set in a grand building, the staff set a relaxed tone to the hotel which was apparent from the initial reception on arrival.
Our room was tasteful and extremely comfortable, the public areas are finished with almost unbelievable detail, the spa is huge and sumptuous and the food (in the Dinning Room) was on a par with some of the best food we have ever enjoyed.
It is an expensive hotel (our one night stay cost £420) but it truly a price worth paying. Our only minor quibble was that there should be a B&B rate!
We will be going back again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lime Wood, a boutique country house hotel in England, is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, 1.5 miles from the small town of Lyndhurst and just an hour and a half drive from London. We like to think of ourselves as a luxury country house hotel with a difference. We've used Lime Wood's classical structure as the basis of our design but we've lovingly renovated it with a fresh approach, reviving its architecture and grounds. We've kept the spirit of its past, taken inspiration from its extraordinarily beautiful surroundings and added the odd contemporary twist to bring it to life. The food is by Luke Holder and Angela Hartnett. With its proximity to London, our New Forest boutique hotel really is the ultimate countryside getaway; perfect for weekend breaks, a dash from the city, or an escape from home; whatever your motivations, we can't wait to show you around. ... more less
