We stayed here for a weekend after visiting family locally. Great welcome (although you have to check in at the bar) & a lovely large comfy room. Nice to have bottled water in the room as well as tea/ coffee & biscuits. Bathroom was large & had great towels.
The bedroom was spotlessly clean & so was the bathroom - until you shut the bathroom door. The tiles & the floor behind the door were caked in dust. Definitely a while since anyone had checked back there.
Our breakfasts were excellent, well cooked & a good choice. We ate here on the first night & had decent pub food and fantastically friendly service.
The hotel entrance & stairs are looking tired & again could do with a good refresh & a clean - there were several dead flies on the banister rails which were at eye level every time you went down.
The car park is not easy to find and it would be useful if there was something on the website to say how to find it, or a different post code to put in so you don't have to phone the hotel after driving round the one way system several times. & there is wi-fi in the hotel , but they don't tell you that & we didn't spot the sign until we were checking out. (a sign in the bedroom would have been useful. The only one we spotted was in the bar)
I also wouldn't recommend this for anyone with mobility difficulties. The stairs are steep & there are a lot of them.
Overall a very pleasant stay & was the perfect location for getting out & about locally in the new forest.
