“my recent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

I stayed at this hotel on friday 31st of january for 2 nights. This was arranged by my sister Jan and has been on going for 14 years. I had a small but very cosy room, the food was very good and the staff very friendly. All in all a very enjoyable stay, i look forward to coming again next year.

We stayed for three nights with a party of 60 and had an excellent weekend. The hotel is recently refurbished and the rooms very comfortable. The staff were were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.The breakfast buffet included lots of local produce cooked to perfection and was piping hot.with lots of choice and constantly restocked. The rooms were warm as was the whole hotel. When we decided to have an impromptu concert on the Sunday night the staff could n't have been more helpful and joined in by setting up an extra bar in the lounge and provided extra seats. I look forward to meeting everyone next February for another great weekend

We stayed for two nights over a weekend on a deal. The hotel is in an interesting building on Lyndhurst High Street. The bar brasserie is modern and too highly lit to be conducive to romance. Food here was surprisingly good. We had excellent steaks. The library has uncomfortable chairs. The breakfast room decor is old style hotel where nothing matches. Buffet breakfast has loads of choice but the cooked breakfast is all in warmers and a bit tepid. Our only real complaint as all the staff were very friendly is that our room 101 was completely freezing. They did provide a heater, but we were still very, very cold. And you couldn't swing a cat in the bathroom. Would I stay again? Perhaps, but definitely not in winter.

Dear JackieWSandhurst,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, as all feedback helps us strive to achieve the best service levels possible.

Please accept my apologies for the issue you experienced with the heating in the room allocated, which I would like to assure you was an isolated incident caused by an air lock, which has now been rectified.

I am glad you enjoyed your dining experience in the bar&grill, and thank you for your observations regarding some of the breakfast dishes, which have been discussed with the Head Chef.

I look forward to welcoming you back on a future occasion.

As usual our two friends Rob and jan organised our annual long weekend in the Crown manor House Hotel in Lyndhurst. This year, because of refurbishment done last year, there was a little apprehension. Not necessary. Fabulous as always. After fourteen years and thirteen visits, we think it could not get better. It always does. Everything about the weekend and hotel is fabulous.
This year was no exception. The rooms, food and surroundings are marvelous, but I think the main thing is the staff. From the manager down to chamber maids, they are so attentive and helpful. I could not fault one thing. Thank you Crown Manor House Hotel for making my stay just the best.
I look forward to next year.

Lynne Stevens.

My eldest son bought us a one-night DB&B break from Groupon at this super hotel as a Christmas present. It is obvious that a lot of money has been spent in this independently owned hotel bringing it into the “boutique” bracket. We had a large bedroom (212), a four poster bed and a very stylish modern bathroom complete with monsoon shower. With great food in the Bar and Grill and service to match, it was well worth the 4-hour drive to get there. Tip: Follow the Hotel’s directions rather than relying on SatNav as Lyndhurst is almost all one-way traffic. Lots of free parking and on the edge of the New Forest. We had a very exciting Mexican stand-off with some New Forest ponies on the way in but it all added to the enjoyable overall experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a four-poster bedroom which was large, spacious and very well-appointed. Well worth paying t...

Another visit to this lovely hotel. A perfect break. The hotel has been very tastefully refurbished, but still retains it's original charm. Each bedroom has been updated and now have modern and stylish bathrooms. Dinner was excellent each evening and breakfast was well cook, well presented and with plenty of choice. The manager and his team go that extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction is maintained. This hotel, has a warm homely feel, and although it's great to have fresh interiors the human touch is still there. A great place to unwind - thanks to all the staff. We will visit again for sure.

Every year a group who include Family and friends come together for a weekend in Jan/Feb, this year was no exception and 81 of us met up again.
For 14 years we have been coming to the Crown Manor House Hotel in Lyndhurst, this year under new ownership had it changed?
Well, yes and no:
YES - it has been tastefully refurbished with many improvements throughout in décor and style especially the bath/shower rooms.
NO - in relation to the hospitality and service, how do you improve something that has always been superb?
Once again the team at this hotel led by the Manager can never do enough for you, everyone is so professional yet friendly, a perfect balance and although the food has always been good this year the Chef and his team excelled themselves.
Again this year our weekend was a great success with people already signing up to return next year, we can thoroughly recommend the Crown Manor House Hotel, so thank you to all and roll on Jan/Feb 2015.
