We booked at short notice for a weekend break. we were concerned that there were rooms available. Checked it out on Trip Advisor. Good reviews
Booking was easily done over the phone. It was discussed that our room was on the 2nd floor, and whether this would be a problem.
Friendly greeting on arrival by both Ernesto and Etsuko accompanied to the room by Etsuko who pointed out where items such as hairdryer could be found explained breakfast times etc.
The room was very clean, light and airy even with the low beams which was also discussed upon booking (we had no problems with this at all) and the shower was more than adequate and easy to control.
Beds were very comfortable
Lyndhurst is within easy walking distance with a selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants to chhose from. (we can reccomend La Pergola)
Walk 100 metres acros the road to the front of Rufus House you will be in the New Forest with the ponies and cattle grazing freely, ideal for early morning strolls as the mist lifts, prior to breakfast.
We have to agree with all the comments regarding the breakfasts, they are excellent, fresh fruit, yoghurts, toast and cereals followed by a superbly cooked Full English or whatever choice you wish.
This was our first visit to The Rufus House, and will not be our last.
we will definately rebook when we once again return to the Forest
