Stayed here for one night whilst taking in The New Forest. Ideal location, Lyndhurst is lovely, would recommend Peggy May's cafe for breakfast or cup of tea. Would also recommend hiring a bike from AA bike hire in the car park of the visitor centre. The chap there gives great advice on where to cycle and provides you with all you need for a good day out.
Anyway as for the hotel, we had a friendly welcome from the lad working on the bar (was fairly quiet being a Sunday afternoon). He checked us in and walked us to our room. We noticed some exposed wires in the bathroom next to the shower so requested a move which was done very quickly with no fuss.
The second room was much bigger, but windows opened out on to the roof which had a huge fan/generator which was very noisy. It was a very warm evening which meant we had to choose between being cool but with noise or less noise but a stuffy room, neither were ideal.
The following morning we were awoken by more noise with some drilling seeming taking place on the wall directly behind the bed. When I mentioned this to the lady who we checked out with she simply said "sorry".
The staff one the Sunday night were great, especially the two lads (one being the manager I believe) and one girl on the bar.
Overall I would recommend the hotel based on location, staff, price and the food which was ok (standard pub food level).
I would strongly recommend you check out the room before unpacking or heading off, or at least take a fan and or ear muffs if you end up in the room we stayed in (can't remember number sorry!!)
