The location is good but definitely not one of the better Best Westerns. The room was adequate with comfortable bed, but was very hot in May, so what would it be like when it was really hot outside in summer? Only small window opens & no air coming in. The toilet chain was poor, took ages to refill, also shower...

We stayed here for 2 nights on a DBB basis. We had a BOGOF return voucher as we had previously stayed at another hotel in their group. For the price we paid it was very good, but it would have been very expensive if we had paid full rack rate. Our standard "Agister" room was a reasonable size and pleasant...

Great friendly hotel with indoor swimming pool. Brilliant for those with children. Great breakfast choice of continental of fry. Great access to high street only 6 minute walk to shops, pubs and the forest. Short drive to hire bikes in Burley.

Thank you for your review. You sound like an active family, perfect for enjoying the New Forest. It's obviously where you get your appetite for breakfast. When you visit next time you can have your bikes delivered to the hotel as there are lots of great bike rides from the hotel. We will hopefully see you soon. Kind Regards, Martin...

the hotel is 4 stars. Breakfast is very good but service is slow. Rooms are refurbished but not particularly clean. In addition, there is no mini-bar in the room. Two bottles of water are complimentary, but they are not replaced when finished... Overall, a good B&B costs half this hotel.

I wonder whether you have us confused with another hotel as we do not or never have had 4 stars. We are a 3 star establishment and very proud to be so. We have also never confessed to have a mini bar in any of the rooms?? What the hotel does stand out for is it's great location, it's 2...

Although the restaurant tried to help, there were no items mentioned on the menu being gluten free. Many people these days experience the problem. They should not have to keep asking each time they want to eat. At breakfast there was dairy free milk, but when we asked about dairy free spread for toast they thought we had come from...

Thank you for your review and comments about your dietary requirements. We aim to always be proactive with regards to guests needs and dairy free spread is something which has been purchased in the past but it was not used or asked for and was eventually thrown away.

Attentive staff, family room felt very cramped. A bit tired looking. Booked through Red Letter days, who have good deals. A very good location., close to pubs and town. A good choice of breakfast, and I also noticed that they can provide you with a selection of breakfast food to takeaway if you have to leave early. ( good)

Very nice location for walking into Lyndhurst. Several pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Swimming pool was nice and we had it to ourselves. Breakfast at the hotel very good. The staff were very personable. Although the hotel was mostly clean, it is starting to look a bit tired.
