Fantastic hotel, super friendly staff, lovely room, superb food, beautiful location. Lovely Lounge with gorgeous sofas to chill on. Although it's attached to a golf course you would never know as it just has a big country feel. Go and have a fabulous time.

I booked a single room for one night. The room was big enough for a single, and I was extremely pleased with the "proper" sized bathroom and bath. I found the bed a bit too soft (and narrow) for my liking, but you're never going to please everyone. I was quite a bit disappointed at breakfast - was greeted nicely... More

The Inn is beautifully situated in the New Forest and is an attractive building. Service at lunch was very friendly but was on the slow side. The standard of the food was average to good but portions were small and represented poor value .For example, other than a smear of mushy peas across my plate, there was no veg with... More

My husband and I booked 'a snug' room on the 2nd floor, so I was expecting 'snug', however we were extremely pleasantly surprised and the room & bed was larger than more expensive hotels we have stayed in.
