The restaurant was very good
The wine was quite expensive
The staff were friendly and helpful, food excellent, and it was situated very close to the Town Quay from which we were going to sail.
Because we arrived late for dinner the waiter did not notice us and we had to wait to order. However they were very apologetic and looked after us well.
hotel was as good as it looked on their own website, confortable and relaxing, staff were all friendly and helpful, breakfast was superb, didnt eat an evening meal in the hotel suspect though that the food would have been excellent.
Excellent location for wandering around the small town of Lymington (independent shops, big Saturday market), a few mins' walk from the quay-side and harbour and a short drive from the gorgeous New Forest. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Enjoyed the Sea Food Restaurant.
The rooms vary (and the ones at the top are not particularly accessible for elderly/reduced mobility) and the smaller/cheaper ones are a little over-priced. Unfortunately, there are not many comparable hotels in the area so its the price you pay for the great location, which compensates. Parking is a pain - the private car park gets full quickly and you end up having to feed the meter in the public area - not expensive, but inconvenient. Again, its the price you pay for the town centre location and for me, it did not detract from the stay. But again, the elderly or infirm should note this.
The staff were all excellent, very friendly and helpful.
The double room was small, but was ok for short stay.
The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent
There was a minor problem with the heating in our room (and I think in the hotel in general) upon arrival but this was sorted out quickly - maybe the housekeeper or staff should have noticed as the day was very cold!
Very friendly welcoming staff.
nice pleasant environment.
room really hot and window only opened slightly. like a sauna without the rocks !!
bedrooms seemed very tired, in urgent need of an upgrade. no fridge.
The staff were extremely helpful when My husband was unwell
