We got to Brockenhurst early in the day and went for one of the many long walks in the area before stopping at a pub for lunch. At 2ish we were still early for our designated...

Bought the groupon package back in November but didn't read the small print that said you had to book within so many weeks. So feeling deflated I sent them an email apologising for missing the deadline but wanting to book a weekend in February. To my amazement they honoured my voucher and booked me the wife and our three little...

Just a divine find. Having moved to Bournemouth just two years ago, my wife and I have never really experienced the new forest short of driving to Brockenhurst train station when the trains are up the creek. This delightful and quaint hotel is just around the corner from Brockenhurst station and easy to find even though we drove. As check...

We came here overnight for my birthday and stayed in the beautiful Gillies Holt room. Having a January birthday, I am used the weather being grotty, but the heavy rain banging on the skylight windows just made it more cosy at night! It was very warm and clean and the staff were extremely attentive and helpful. I loved the little...

We stayed here for our first anniversary and were really impressed with how welcome we were made to feel. The room we had was quirky with the four poster bed made from local wood and really cosy.

Well located in the middle of Brockenhurst, and lots of nice touches - such as the honesty bar and fire in the snug - mean that overall its a nice place to stay. One star off as the room was a bit small (and not very soundproof) and the scrambled eggs at breakfast could do with a few minutes less...
