Lovely family and dog friendly hotel with a real charm and elegance, the staff were super helpful, albeit the receptionist could be a little brusque but the other staff made up for it. The food was great and I loved the refurbished room, only down side no air conditioning - great hotel and great staff

Stayed: May 2018

Really pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again.

I agree that air con would be lovely but it comes at a cost, of course most city and airport corporate hotels have aircon because of their location and inability to open windows. I have checked around the New Forest to see who might have aircon and also their rates. Chewton has it in all rooms at £625 per night, Careys in some rooms only at £279 per night and Crown Manor at Lyndhurst has it in a couple of rooms only. We dont want to charge those sort of rates so no plans here Im afraid.

Most of the hotels that do advertise they have aircon on tripadvisor in this area I have called and they only have it in public rooms or function rooms, not in bedrooms. We don't advertise having it but we also have it in our banqueting suites.

I hope that helps.

I have never left a review on TripAdvisor before but thought it was time we added our words of praise for this outstanding hotel.

We have been here many times but only twice since Tim and Nikki took over and can only say it is a real pleasure to stay in such a well run and happy family feeling establishment. I only fear that by saying how much we love it will lead to much difficulty in rebooking later in the year!

The staff are a joy, friendly and ever helpful, rooms immaculate and the restaurant first-class. As for the bedrooms I even threatened to hijack the pillows!

I could certainly live there permanently. Many thanks to all concerned and hope to see you all again in the autumn.

This proved to be an amazing choice for our wedding anniversary. The wonderfully friendly help with all the preparations , the great venue, the excellent meal, accommodation and service all contributed to a truly memorable occasion. We also received high praise from all our guests. A thoroughly good time was had by all. Thank you Nikki, Tim and all the staff.

Our experience was great and the hotel was just what we needed for a relaxing break. The hotel staff were helpful and welcoming. Our ground floor room had patio doors onto the gardens and had a lovely view. We took our small dog which was accommodated for by the staff especially at meal times in the Cedar Tree restaurant. The food was excellent and staff were brilliant . We look forward to visiting again.

Room Tip: ground floor twin room had easy access for people with mobility problems
