4 out of 5

Lovely hotel close to the Forrest.

Pros: The spa facilities were very reasonable and the breakfast was lovely.
Cons: Air conditioning in the rooms. Also we asked to loan an umbrella and were told there are none because guests weren't returning them - charge 4 them.
Location: New Forest walks, close to wedding facilities.
Nicely refurbished hotel rooms with great facilities. The breakfast was excellent. Only complaint was that there is no fan or airconditioning in the rooms and with the current unseasonably hot weather the room was uncomfortably warm especially at night.
