Good value and friendly hotel in a good location in the centre of Lyndhurst, main road can be busy but didn't cause us any issues. They were very helpful as I'd booked hotel on booking.com for wrong weekend even though I had paid they transferred the booking and put us in the apartment couldn't ask for more

No-fuss accommodation in a small but prosperous town. The bed was uncomfortable and the hotel lacked amenities and much character, but has a sizable carpark with a fair selection of pubs and restaurants a short walk away. Tasty food at the Passage to India almost opposite. But the main reason to visit is the glorious New Forest - don't miss...

Thank you for your review, an uncomfortable bed is not acceptable, but is this just personal preference or is there something wrong with the bed? it is a shame that we were not advised on check out.

This was not just in my room, but adjacent rooms as well . (At least you know if your neighbour are regular !!!! ) Shower...

Oh dear mullered You got our one and only single room on the night of our plumbing issues (as you can read from other reviews noisy plumbing is not the norm here), but nether the less annoying for you.

We were there for the weekend. Plenty of parking, good location a few minutes walk out of town, easy to find. On arrival we were shown to our room and when we left were offered water and chocolate bars for the journey. Room was massive, shower pressure was excellent, breakfast was hot and served quickly - no complaints - it's...

We booked a last minute room and knew in advance that it was their last room and a small double. It's in a good location, a few minutes walk from the centre of Lyndhurst. But it is on the main road with all that brings: noise, fumes. The room was small - and the en suite was also very small...

Firstly, I must say that our experience of this property was confined to a stay in the self catering apartments ( Mad Hatter 2) so my comments relate to that accommodation. I cannot speak for the letting rooms in the main building as we did not see them. I will start with the positives because there were some! The staff...
