From the moment we opened the door to our room at Ormonde House we knew we were in for a very comfortable stay. The bathroom was huge and the quality of fixtures, fittings and furnishings was very high. Bed was so comfy and made up with sheets, blankets, bedspread and furry throw which was fab as it gave us a few different options depending on how warm/cold we were feeling. Magazines and complimentary toiletries were a nice touch too. Breakfast is a very well-run operation - good service and cooked to perfection with high-quality ingredients and a nice selection of fruit and cereals. You can order the full English or cherry pick from eggs, bacon, sausages etc which means you can always have exactly what you fancy. The scrambled eggs and sausages were top-notch. Tiny gripes (and they really were tiny) were the toilet roll holder, which kept falling off the wall (it only needed a quiz whizz of the electric drill) and the temperature of the bathroom, which was rather sauna-like at times (but this just added to its spa-like ambience!) Also the car park gets busy at times so we had to park in the road, but I spotted a planning application for this to be extended, so hopefully this won't be a problem for much longer.
Location was ideal; we walked into Lyndhurst for dinner at Passage to India (best curry we've ever eaten, but make sure you book). Also make sure you hop over the road and spend an hour amongst the wild New Forest ponies, it's guaranteed to de-stress you.
We can't recommend this hotel highly enough, and hope to return soon.
