It was a disaster. We could not stay. We were given a room next to their waste hold area. The window would not open because all the rubbish bins were just outside. The room was tight and horrible. We left immediately. See our comments of 'what we liked'. Terrible hotel. Needs total modernisation, as location is good. Need new staff, training, etc. avoid staying there at all costs!
The breakfast was very delightful, lot of choices and they do cater for vegetairans and those who use soya milk. The spa facilities were good. However, I would say that the hotel needs refurbishment and some area needs modernisation. Being told that we are limited to one towel each by one particular member in the spa club. This was not the case with other staff members.
The buffet breakfast was superb, especially the honeycomb. Im the first room we were given the central heating was not wotking and we had to move to another room, but nobody came to help us with our luggage and we had to carry it all ourselves - not what one expects from a 4-star hotel especially as my wife and I are in our late seventies
A very comfortable bed having to wait in line to get a breakfast table
I liked the atmosphere, facilities and the staff who were most helpful and friendly. I did experience some problems with accessing my room with the card that was provided to me. It often didn't work and this caused me some inconvenience. I would have been much better off with a good old fashioned key! However, the staff made every effort to resolve this problem by upgrading me to a different room with a sea view. I considered this to be outstanding customer service.
Received room upgrade. Very good service
old world charm but shows signs of fading service in Oscars restaurant fell well below expected standard
Leisure facilities £15 to pay for car parking. No mention of this until we had arrived. Staff could be a little overzealous. We received the bill for our evening meal before we had had our dessert and coffee and our table was cleared while we were getting our cooked breakfast
good customer service rooms quite small
The hotel was very comfortable. The service in the restaurant for breakfast was not good.
Nice spacious room and spacious general areas staff were very obliging. Could not control temperature in room which got very hot. But in fairness that is a problem a lot of older hotels have.
Pleasant for a short stop over. Handle was falling off the main door to room. Lack of staff
Spacious room, friendly staff
Excellent "country house" style hotel None
Excellent Location. Quiet Setting. Lovelly Gardens. Good walking straight into the New Forest within a few hundred yards of the hotel. Excellent restaurant & cuisine. Some of the decor was in need of refurbishment. Unfortunately,the room ( a "Superior Room") that we were given was directly over the kitchen area & it was noisy until late at night & also very early in the morning. I would recommend guests to enquire about this aspect before making a booking.
Extremely friendly and efficient staff, best breakfast I've had for a while Shower
Location and views A little overpriced for the standard offered
The Hotel service was very efficient. the pool and sauna were ok. the Passford House Hotel is a little on the tired side. the rooms were starting to show signs of wear and tear and the televisionoin ourt room and the decor looked like something from the Ark. The changing rooms for the sauna and pool needed a good refresh and refurbishment as lockers were rusty and dented and teh changing suites were rather ostere. The worst part of the stay was the food with a rather formulaic menu of what can only be described as institutional mass catering, Food was balnd, unimaginative and teh breakfast was cold and eggs not cooked properly, It turned out that the night porter was also the chef. For the money we paid this was very disappointing. i will not be going back or recommending the Passford House Hotel.
Hotel staff were friendly and professional, rooms good size, clean and in good order. Some of the decor was a bit dated - but clean
All staff were extremely efficient and good-tempered and obliging. The restaurant meal was great. Food served in the bar was excellent. Absolutely no complaints.
Staff were wonderful and the food was excellent Decor was a little tired and dated
The bedroom was spacious, well-equipped, pleasantly decorated and very comfortable.Excellent value for money. Conveniently situated for the IOW ferry terminal. I had no dislikes, it was wonderful.
Comfort and high quality of room and health and fitness facilties. No free wi fi connection
The pool was great and the grounds are nice to walk. The gardens and the bar have been improved greatly since me last visit at the hotel and that makes a big difference. The hotel members who use the pool are very rude and they should take note that the facilities are to be used by guests who stay there and not just them. One lady was very rude to my daughter and I did not appreciate that.
No internet access
log fires, spa, breakfast, views.it was so good we stayed an extra night..and would have stayed longer if we had the time..
Location and facilities
The service in all areas was very slow due to massive understaffing, staff uniforms very tatty
The leisure facilities the indoor swimming pool, sauna, and gym My parents had a timeshare there in the late 80's early 90's and the restaurant (Sails) the one in the leisure place had know atmosphere and its still the same I don't know if that's because of the prices or other things. We went to a local pub but would have loved to stayed at Elmers court but it didn't grab us.
quiet and peaceful. plenty of space to walk. outdoor pool closed. which we knew but no outddor lounge chairs and staff refused to allow lounge chairs from around theoutdoor pool to be moved.
I particularly liked the high standards offered especially the breakfast and free bottle of wine with my booking The chalet rooms had patio doors as the main entrance and you felt a bit esposed to people walking by.
The friendly, efficient manner that we recieved at reception and the excellent food, both at dinner and breakfast.
clean,food good bed not very comfortable,need extra pillows.
peace and quite the weather
Our room was very spacious, and had a nice view over the gardens. Breakfast was excellent - proper pot of coffee and cups instead of filled mugs. Music on stereo during dinner - old Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.
Good food, pretty surroudings
Everythihg was fine as we would expect
Hotel was in pleasant surroundings, rooms were well furnished if a little tired. Staff seemed under pressure, we had dinner and wine was not opened for us there were knives missing. When spending £80 on a meal for two more services was expected. Also we had been given what was called a superior room but bathroom was in a time warp, suite was AVACADO
Good sized room, excellent for the money. Matresses a bit tired.
Comfortable with friendly service.
Location to Milford on Sea as we were house hunting in the area The coffee- they need to learn to make espresso. The cost of the room was way overpriced for the quality provided.
I found it very comforting to stay there while my brother was ill. It was a welcoming and beautiful place for me to rest. It really helped me get through a difficult time. Room one had extremely rusty water when I arrived which I could not get rid of. We did not have this problem in room 2 when I returned with my family.
The food was very good and well presented. The staf were friendly and helpful.
a up grad of room free of carge noizy nabbears but was lookd aferter
The staff and the breakfast were superb. The bedroom smelt, believe it emminated from the mattress. Arrived late too tired not until next day the smell had ingressed into clothing. Decor poor and needs complete refurbishment.
the pool and sauna .breakfast the room was an insult ,bathroom outdated and very dirty shower unfit to use . plugs loose on walls wallpaper a disgrace ,torn and dirty.
Central location very limited carparking hotel needs a make over, quite dated
Decor very very tired (corridors & bathroom) It was a typical old fashioned "seaside" hotel... the bathroom hasn't been changed since the 70's (nasty pink suite) and had a mouldy/damp smell. The room also felt extremely draughty and cold, despite the heating being on! The staff were friendly enough though. So to sum up, it is OK for one night.
This hotel offered free WIFI & Parking, and the room only cost £32! The receptionist was very helpful and friendly and I got a free room upgrade. The food in the diner was very good and well priced. Can't really work out why people were moaning, the price is fantastic and everywhere is very clean. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated but its comfortable and the cheapest around so well worth it for a short break. everyone stop moaning and pay more if you expect 5 star services At best, the floorboards outside my room were a bit creaky and there was no blind in the bathroom, which didn't particularly bother me
Welcoming staff for English speakers but noticed lack of skill at reception for foreigners ie rapid, complex sentences, given once, no body language or reference to local town map etc. I saw two foreigners bemused despite being given instructions which only I could just follow. A little bit ot raining might help! Just a friendly observation - not meaning to be too critical!
we found the location ideal for the shops and theatre.The breakfast was very good and the staff very polite and friendly. creaky floorboards and the housekeeping staff started vacumming at 8.30 in the room upstairs. Also building work taking place although this was probably reflected in the price we paid.
Everyone was helpful & friendly.An ideal spot for all locations in the area.
when handing in my key the receptionist could not give me a receipt for the room have requested copy but by 6th July still waiting
Good location, great view from room with balcony and very friendly staff.
Opulent public areas, excellent staff
The shower was cold,in both rooms that i booked, & the radiator did not work in room 203
yes as previous reviews - lift scary. hot water very hot and could not cool down shower. cold water warm. toilet cistern took long time to refill,
Hotel and room clean and warm and adequate. Breakfast good Although a warning was given water took a long time to heat up (more than 10 minutes for shower) and then only luke warm
Relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff, good meals and good value for money Food portions a bit small
Sea view, pibic areas had been extensively refurbished. the bedrooms were not of a similar standard as the public areas and are in need of refurbishment.
The room was fantastic and very comfortable Breakfast was very disappointing, not very edible
Location was excellent and great value for money. Luxury stay and would definitely stay again. Added bonus of being upgraded but that shows the excellent customer service provided, would definitely recommend to friends and family
The bed. The view of sea. The alfresco eating around the pool The abcence of a shower. The lack of promised sauna in facilities advertised in sister hotel.
Welcoming, convenient and comfortable. Our room needed an extra easy chair.
Staff very helpful on my brief stay Bed mattress and pillows a little lumpy
Very warm welcome, superb breakfast menu. spotless accomodation, very well managed no
Within a one hour drive of Southampton. Parking available in front if you can squeeze your car in (we did successfully). Several restaurants are a short walk away. The room and the bathroom were comfortable and functional. The breakfast cost extra but was worth the money. Not the best English breakfast, but it wasn't bad either. Internet was solid. Watch for the cattle grates leading out of the property that keep the loose donkeys away. They have signs posted, but they are not where they should be to alert those on foot. The ceilings are low in entry ways; those 5'10 and above should duck everywhere (except in the room).
The staff were very welcoming and the hotel was charming. Breakfast was fantastic. I loved all of it.
From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a smiling face and a pot of tea and coffee along with slices of cake. We were more than happy with the accommodation and would recommend it to our friends and family. Hope to make a return visit later in the year.
Having attended a wedding at Rhinefield Hotel your B/B was close to the location. Staff were excellent and the breakfast was superb Nothing not to like, but just one thing a light above the mirror in the bedroom area would improve the lighting
central,good parking,plenty of local information maps etc.available,very helpful & courteous staff,extensive choice for breakfast.
We liked the warm welcome, very trusting with ongoing friendly and helpful hospitality. The room was excellent with everything provided that you would expect and more including our loverly little plot of garden we got with it. Staff where full of useful and historic information about The New Forest and you can tell they work really hard to provide the most local of produce, N/A
Extremely personal service - welcome with tea/coffee and home made cake (free throughout the stay whenever needed). Good information and reviews about where to eat, also walks/maps for exploring. Breakfast was locally sourced as far as possible and fairtrade if not, plus in the 'snug' local beverages available. Free posh toiletries and cotton buds/cotton wool balls/tissures in room.
