Situated on the outskirts of Lyndhurst, the hotel is roughly an eight minute walk from the town centre, and ideally situated for visiting the New Forest.
Our room (25), which was situated on the first floor, was fairly small but with high ceilings. However, the room was certainly not the cleanest we had ever stayed in. There were numerous dust/cobwebs hanging from the ceilings, and both the window frames and between the radiators were caked in dust. The net curtains were torn, and did not look very clean. Even in the Glasshouse restaurant the net curtains were stained with food splashes, and the floor was not particularly clean. Some of the floorboards were fairly creaky, but not really a problem.
In addition to this our window overlooked the outside decked area of the bar, which was fairly noisy one evening following a wedding reception.
There was a complimentary refreshment tray containing tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, but no bottled water.
The breakfast was fairly mediocre with some items undercooked. There was fairly limited choice, and the cooked breakfast seemed fairly small in comparison to similar establishments.
I dislike writing negative reviews about hotels, but hope that in doing so the negative issues are put right for future quests.
