What a wonderful experience this was. On arrival my wife and I were met with a charming receptionist who insisted on carrying one of our bags of luggage even though it was nearly as big as her!. She then very kindly offered us a complimentary drink once we had settled in. We went for a walk through the charming village...

Staff allowed us to check in early due to the work we was doing and we arrived back at the hotel very late the staff even opened breakfast slightly early for us due to us having to go back to work the following morning

We enjoyed an overnight stay in this excellent value hotel. We found the hotel clean, well organised, serving a very good quality breakfast. To top it off all the staff we encountered were friendly, efficient and professional, from the cleaner opening the door for us on our very wet arrival, the waitresses giving a very friendly and efficient breakfast service...

Perfectly clean and serviceable room, with decent TV & tea, coffee etc. In the town centre, and car parking on a first come first served basis. Got a key for the font door, so we could get back in after staff left for the night. Aspects of the decor were 'tired' but it was good value for money. Breakfast was...

Good value and friendly hotel in a good location in the centre of Lyndhurst, main road can be busy but didn't cause us any issues. They were very helpful as I'd booked hotel on booking.com for wrong weekend even though I had paid they transferred the booking and put us in the apartment couldn't ask for more

No-fuss accommodation in a small but prosperous town. The bed was uncomfortable and the hotel lacked amenities and much character, but has a sizable carpark with a fair selection of pubs and restaurants a short walk away. Tasty food at the Passage to India almost opposite. But the main reason to visit is the glorious New Forest - don't miss...

Thank you for your review, an uncomfortable bed is not acceptable, but is this just personal preference or is there something wrong with the bed? it is a shame that we were not advised on check out. We do have a sizeable car park and are a short walking distance to Lyndhurst and its amenities and the New Forest is...

Booked a single room for a business trip. What I got was a tiny room, with hardly enough room to move around the bed. No storage for luggage. Bathroom plumbing very noisy, especially toilet refills. This was not just in my room, but adjacent rooms as well . (At least you know if your neighbour are regular !!!! ) Shower...

We were there for the weekend. Plenty of parking, good location a few minutes walk out of town, easy to find.

We booked a last minute room and knew in advance that it was their last room and a small double. It's in a good location, a few minutes walk from the centre of Lyndhurst. But it is on the main road with all that brings: noise, fumes. The room was small - and the en suite was also very small...
