    Location is 7 min walk to the lovely village of Lyndhurst. Huge park across the toad with hours of walking tracks, and wild ponies. Despite being on a main rode, the rooms at the back were very quiet. Breakfast is good at £10 (although oddly they ask you to pay cash, no receipt).

    It was just hostile, and we felt like we were being managed by an invisible set of rules constantly. - We we’re allocated one guest bottle of shampoo / conditioner, for both of us for three nights. When we asked if we could grit another set we were told “not allowed - one set per guests per visit”. - Theres very little space to sit outside the room. I took calls on the patio and was about to run out of battery so went into the dining room to charge. Told “not allowed - go to your room where you have a desk”. - We’d leave phones / laptops charging in the room, and we’d come back after breakfast and all the power plugs had been turned off. (Guess that wasn’t allowed either?). It just made for a really unpleasant stay. Any generosity has been stripped away.

    Breakfast was great well cooked and a good selection to pick from and you were always offered more most obliging. The location was also really good, close to the town and very easy to get to other local attractions from there

    just the shower could do with up dating as the temperature control was not easy
