When you read some reviews on here they make you think about cancelling your visit, well do not. I have come to the conclusion that some people are never happy unless they are complaining. We (a couple late 60s) stayed here at the start of February 2017 and it was a fantastic short break. The weather was mild and the...

Booked 4 rooms on a January offer. Th initial internet booking had a few issues, but the hotel staff called several times to ensure all was as it should be. A bottle of prosecco in our room for my wife's birthday was a nice touch. The manager was very helpful, and the waitress at dinner did everything she could to...

Went for a weekend break, we were on a bargain deal of £150 for 2 people for 2 nights including breakfast. We were in one of the outer rooms which was nice but chilly the first day; it felt like the heating had been off and the one wall heater struggled to heat the room. It was a bit dated...

We have stayed in other Macdonald hotels and expected the same level of service and luxury, but this was not the case. Yes the view of the building and grounds are fabulous and so is the overall location. The breakfast was adequate, the dining room clean and the waiting on tables in the breakfast room good. The gym is good...

We stayed here last year between Christmas and new year and loved it so much we booked again. This time we were at the other side of the complex in W building.

We stayed here for two nights, with friends, taking advantage of their 'January deals'. This worked out extremely good value, as there was also an offer on for dinner each night. The rooms were slightly dated, but extremely comfortable and spacious. The location is lovely, great for being able to walk into Lymington and the discovering the surrounding area. Dinner...

Elmers Court has splendid scenery, helpful and friendly staff. They advised us to many interesting attractions. The only thing we didn´t enjoy much was an indoor pool, too many people at once, but that´s not their fault. In general.we really enjoyed our stay there.
