Booked this hotel while we were touring the New Forest and wanted somewhere to stay that night. Really glad we chose the Penny Farthing. It is perfectly located in Lyndhurst - shops, pubs, restaurants are only a short walk away. We received a friendly welcome which continued throughout our stay. The receptionist on duty when we arrived, Bozena, made sure...

What fantastic customer service, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are somewhat tired, but perfectly adequate for our stay. Great cooked breakfast. B&B is right on the edge of town, 5 mins to all you need.

The penny farthing hotel is very good value for ones money. We have stayed several times, in different rooms, and have found all of them to be very clean and comfortable. There is fruit on the table in the reception area, and it is available for anyone at any time. So are the sweets in reception. There is a good...

The hotel itself was pleasant enough although the décor in the room needs updating and the television remote didn't work very well, everything was okay but I would suggest it was a little overpriced for the facilities provided. We received a warm and friendly welcome and the breakfast was nice, the complimentary bottle of water each was a nice gesture...

We booked in here last minute whilst visiting family in Southampton just before Christmas. To be honest - we weren't expecting much but we couldn't have been more impressed. When we arrived at reception, the young lady who greeted us was wonderful - she had somehow already figured out who we were even before we even gave our name (we...

The hotel is on a main road so very easy to find. It has a large carpark at the rear. The rooms a well equipped and clean and tidy. It is quite at night and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good and ample choice. We have been here at least twelve times and looking forward to further visits.

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...
