Just had a lovely weekend away with my hubby here at this lovely hotel, little bit tired but fantastic staff who were very helpful. Very big rooms and comfortable bed and clean linen and towels. We had an amazing breakfast with a very good choice of cereal, fry up, fruit, yogurt and toast. It's a couple of minutes walk from...

We came down for the weekend and based ourselves here for convenience for Lyndhurst. I wouldn't class it as a Hotel but more of a large B/B. The room was basic albeit it clean and the breakfast on both mornings in our opinion was quite bland ! On a positive note the staff were very polite and helpful and spacious...

Friendly and helpful reception. Great location, a short walk from the town. Room was tiny and just about fitted a double bed in. Bed was very uncomfortable, with paper thin pillows. Really wasn't great! Shower screen didn't shut properly, was either boiling hot or freezing cold and dripped from the shower head with no pressure. Very clean although room was...

Booked this hotel while we were touring the New Forest and wanted somewhere to stay that night. Really glad we chose the Penny Farthing. It is perfectly located in Lyndhurst - shops, pubs, restaurants are only a short walk away. We received a friendly welcome which continued throughout our stay. The receptionist on duty when we arrived, Bozena, made sure...

What fantastic customer service, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are somewhat tired, but perfectly adequate for our stay. Great cooked breakfast. B&B is right on the edge of town, 5 mins to all you need.

Another excellent stay at the penny farthing,the staff were at their usual friendly and welcoming best,as we speak the renovation work had started on the main eating area and when finished in the next couple of weeks will only enhance the experience of staying in this gem of a hotel..i look forward to my next visit.

The penny farthing hotel is very good value for ones money. We have stayed several times, in different rooms, and have found all of them to be very clean and comfortable. There is fruit on the table in the reception area, and it is available for anyone at any time. So are the sweets in reception. There is a good...
