We stayed here 26thSept. From the minute my partner and I walked into reception with our dog, nothing was too much trouble for the reception staff. There was a function on in the main room the first night of our stay so we where advised not to eat in the bar because it would be very busy and as we had our dog with us we couldn't eat in the restaurant, but where asked if we would like to eat in the cellar bar, thinking this would be a dark damp room we found it was totally the opposite. Large settees well lit and nice decor. Our meals and drinks where bought down to us by the staff. Breakfast was cooked fresh to order served on a special table laid up in the bar area so we could have our dog with us.
All staff from reception to waiting and bar staff went out of there way to make this a very enjoyable stay. The hotel is set a 5 minute walk from Lyndhurst High St in the New forest ideal for walks with or without dogs. Next time we'll make use of the pool. less

It is fantastic to hear that from arriving at the hotel, your stay has been perfect. We are a dog friendly hotel and like to make sure you can really relax, whatever the occasion with your four pawed friend! The cellar bar is our hidden little gem, and is always worth exploring when you visit.
I’m sure we will see you again in the future, and I know your stay will be just as good! thanks for taking the time to review.
