15-20 minute drive from Peppa World, the hotel accommodated us two with a toddler on sofa bed and baby sleeping in a cot. Very spacious Christchurch suit was really lovely with everything that we needed including bath for the little ones. Very good food in downstairs gastro pub and tasty (somwhat cold) breakfast. Overall really worth a stay, would even... More

The title sums it up really. We stopped here on the way back from a day out. The restaurant staff were very welcoming and remained helpful and friendly throughout. The food was delicious and we left feeling thoroughly satisfied and full to bursting point.

We have passed this place on numerous occasions but never, until now, at a time when we have wanted to eat. We were travelling back home from our daughter's and were looking for somewhere still serving food after 2.00pm, for a late lunch, and there it was. The sign outside says that it serves food all day, and it had... More

This was a pleasant hotel but very difficult to find. I was told it was on the A31 East near Ringwood but in fact it was west by many miles (around 5) of Ringwood. Although technically it has a house number you cannot see any house numbers if you are driving on the A31. As far as I know it... More

Louise and her team are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble - at any time of the day. We chose to host our wedding party there purely because of the friendly nature of the staff and everyone commented on how lovely they were. The food was great (especially the Carvery)! However, it's time that the brewery reinvested in this business.... More

I used this as an overnight stop over. It is in an excellent location close to the A31, although road noise from my room was not a problem. This stay was a good price as it was a Sunday. but I would have stayed longer but the other evenings would have been double the price

Room was a very good size and the bed was comfortable, so got a good night's sleep - which is the main need. But room is very dated and furniture worn. It needs bringing into the 21st century.
