After staying one night in Lyndhurst my partner and I decided we were not ready to leave the beautiful setting of the new forest and so decided to spend a night in The Mayflower in Lymington. Despite the fact we had booked the room only 20 minutes before arriving we had a very warm welcome and we were shown to...

The rooms are kept immaculately clean by two lovely local ladies who took great pride in both their work and the surrounding area. The breakfasts are fabulous and...

My husband and I stayed at the Mayflower on Friday night for the first time. We were really pleasantly surprised how lovely, relaxing, homely and comfortable we felt. We arrived slightly early and were allowed to check into our room, shown round by the manager, who lives on site and left to relax. The room was lovely overlooking the back...

Had a great nights stay in a lovely room in the pub which has been beautifully fitted out in what seems a recent refurb of the whole pub. Both dinner and breakfast were outstanding plus staff were superb throughout - happy and courteous at all times!

I've stayed at the Mayflower before a few times before it was refurbished and always enjoyed my stay, however since the refurb the hotel is even better and I would recommend if you are staying locally then stay here. The food is excellent and the rooms are perfect. I look forward to my next stay.

Stayed here for a couple of days away. The local walks are superb if you are a nature lover. The Isle of Wight Ferry is a stones throw away. The staff are fabulous and could not do enough for us and our two labradors were made really welcome and treated as guests! Nothing was too much trouble, and the food...

What a lovely pub. We stumbled across it on our coastal walk to Hurst Cadtle fir a drink at lunchtime, the decor, atmosphere and menu persuaded us to book a table for the evening. Lovely friendly staff welcomed us in their stripy t-shirts - (and a roasting fire too) we had the jolliest of waitresses who knew the entire menu...

Not a bad word to say about the mayflower. We were in room 3 which was large, had a bath in the room & the bed was really comfortable. Great shower & lovely toiletries. We stayed for 2 nights & loved the breakfast. The scrambled eggs were the best I've ever had. We also had lunch when we arrived. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the harbour of Lymington on the South Coast, The Mayflower is a stunning coastal inn which has superb dining and stylish rooms with seaside views. Our six bedrooms are beautifully finished, each with their own unique, comforting and contemporary twist. Sleep in the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen, bathe in beautiful Victorian roll-top baths and enjoy some down-time with a Nespresso while looking out over the Solent. We pride ourselves in supporting all things British and all things local, so expect to dine on the finest ingredients that Hampshire and the beautiful South Coast have to offer. Our talented chefs have lovingly prepared a delicious menu, including beautiful seasonal dishes such as crab and lobster macaroni with spinach, morels and tarragon or Buffalo mozzarella, heirloom tomatoes, grilled pepper and basil bruschetta. With an extensive wine list, the best in class ales and a great selection of creative gin cocktails, we have something for everyone at The Mayflower. As a nation, we love to experience the outdoors with our food and drinks. Come summer time, our guests can enjoy our spacious garden, with a picture perfect coastal backdrop as far as the eye can see. The perfect location for al fresco dining. In the winter time, we have real log fires throughout the pub to keep you warm on the coldest of nights. We are conveniently located on the South Coast in Hampshire and are very near to the Isle of Wight and the New Forest - which are truly beautiful at any time of the year, and offer the best in sailing adventures, sightseeing and countryside pursuits. Whether it's a perfectly British Sunday lunch, a lazy afternoon in the garden with friends or a romantic getaway, make The Mayflower your destination of choice! ... more   less
