Reviewed 6 February 2016

Had booked 4 nights on Booking.Com. Our room was large, with en-suite. Very comfortably furnished, large bed, t.v and lots of storage. We were very glad that the room was so warmly heated. Lovely tasteful lamps. The gardens and grounds are extensive, well manicured and pretty. We felt the restaurant was pricey so ate elsewhere during our stay.

Lovely staff and fantastic food - the only problem was the choice on the set menu for the evening meal as most of it revolved around a lot of meat for the main dish and I was surprised not to find a chicken dish on there or an a la carte menu but all credit goes to the chef and...

This has become a traditional haunt for a couple of days between Christmas and New Year and is ideal for relaxation at that time of the year when travelling from a hectic family celebration at Christmas in Sussex to our home in Somerset. What one might call a 'half-way house'.

All very nice although very confusing with different prices over the phone when booking. the Spa was also very good but the jacuzzi should be separate from the swimming pool area as it was too cold to relax in.

Beautiful main house and restaurant set in gardens overlooking the harbour in Lymington and the Solent. Nice big room in a separate part of the hotel with kitchenette. Breakfast was most enjoyable with loads of choice included in our deal. We went a couple of weeks ago but it must be fabulous in the summer. Would definitely visit again.
