“Quite outstanding”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel just after it opened. It is the ultimate in luxury and you are looked after by staff who quite obviously want to you enjoy being there (from the moment they offer to park your car to when you leave), food to die for and incredibly comfortable rooms. Because of the weather i didn't have a real chance to enjoy the grounds but from the window they looked great. I am now looking forward to returning and hope next time it will be a leisure rather than business trip.

Every detail of our stay at Lime Wood was quite simply outstanding. On our arrival, the charming porter insisted on parking our car and taking care of our luggage whilst we were shown to our Forest Suite and shown around.

Particularly of note in Lime Wood are the breathtakingly beautiful exteriors and interiors, sumptous rooms, and warm and friendly service from staff throughout the hotel which is often sadly lacking in larger, more 'formal' establishments.

The focus is very much on 'comfortable' luxury...we were with our two children and far from making us feel we needed to ''hide' them away, we were offered a table in the scullery for them to eat their 'beans and toast' selected from the innovative menu. On the second night they chose to eat 'room service' and were delighted to have this delivered in a beautiful hamper!

After they were tucked up in bed watching a complimentary DVD from the great 'menu' we dined in the Alex Aitken Dining Room after Champagne cocktails in the very glamorous bar - the menu choices again were imaginative, with all of our choices delicious.

Breakfast is served in the Scullery and is a very relaxed and comfortable affair - almost like having breakfast in a friends kitchen (allbeit a very large and beautiful kitchen!). The buffet choices were delicious and again every detail perfect...including the toast being served in Hovis tins - it is the attention to all the details which makes this hotel a real winner!

The only problem we had was having to leave...we will definitely return! This is a truly magical hotel in a wonderful setting - you will not be disappointed!

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
