Great location with good parking and helpful staff. Nice breakfast options. Less positively: room not cleaned thoroughly- foot long dust strings hanging down from the ceiling and loads of dust on the centre light shade and all the wall shades - they need a quick hoover! Also, at check in not informed that the bed would be two singles zipped...

sorry you were so disappointed but please be assured that the bedroom has been fully reviewed by the housekeeper. Wifi can be erratic in the new forest. The £1 on arrival is to guarantee any further charges , on check out it should have been explained that the £1 is refunded in the next 5 to 10 days depending on...

Booked this on a special deal through the Hotel group website Clean and comfortable room, nice cooked breakfast (but ask for fried eggs to be cooked from fresh). The hotel is a good standard English hotel, not pretending to be anything else. Don't expect 4/5 star ambiance even if it does have a pool. Very convenient for Lyndhurst village centre...

This hotel was very efficiently run, and the staff very evident and extremely pleasant. Our room was clean,roomy and the bed very comfortable. The highlight was the standard of the cuisine in both the lovely Glasshouse restaurant and the main dining room. Selection of food was more than adequate, and served in good time and by attentive and friendly staff....

The hotel was very clean and presentable. Looks very good from the outside and we were very impressed with the inside with two spacious bars and lounges which were comfortable with a very pleasant atmosphere. Our room was of a good size with a king bed and the usual trimmings one now expects in hotels. The bathroom was good with...

We booked this hotel on a whim 4 hours before we checked in. We wanted to get away from 'it all' In the NF in a relaxed but nice hotel that had a swimming pool for our 4 year old to have some fun in. It was great. The hotel is family friendly but has a great balance of guests...

The venue was perfect for the size of our party. We wanted a private room to accommodate 21 people for a sit down meal. The 'Glass House' fit the bill totally and would certainly sit a few more guests. Peter, the General Manager was very accommodating to all my needs. Helped plan a suitable three course menu with three choices...
