Delightful house and attentive staff.
Great staff, lovely room, clean and comfortable. A good breakfast is available and a great way to start the day because the location of Rufus house is an excellent place to base yourself when visiting the New Forest. It is also within walking distance to a range of shops and places to eat.

Only the weather!!
This hotel was absolutely perfect. All the staff are helpful and friendly and the room was impeccably clean and very comfortable. Within 200 yards of a lovely Italian restaurant and half a mile from the town centre. opposite the new forest. Perfect location.
Great value for the money n
Bedroom slightly noisy from the traffic on the main road
Very friendly owners near to town centre but very peaceful.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast and comfortable beds
Room at front so needed windows shut at night, shower rather feeble
Exceptionally friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was spacious and very clean. The location was near to Lyndhurst so easy to walk in and find a place to eat, central for many areas to visit.
Location Proximity to restaurants Very clean with every facility
Expensive compared to other houses, particularly with brekfast extra (not cooked) Noisy plumbing
Lovely old building, very well cared for. Comfortable bed
It was expensive - nearly £100 for room only. And we didn't have breakfast, but serving breakfast only between 8am and 9am seems a little inflexible. When I'm travelling on business I'd usually want breakfast earlier than that.
Bed, slept so well! So many nice restaurants within easy reach. Local ingredients for breakfast. Very clean.
Very well appointed and roomy, with a good bathroom, recently painted and decorated with nice furniture and fittings and in a good location on the edge of the New Forest. Excellent value for money. Landlord, his wife and staff were very friendly and efficient and there was off street car parking with the allotment, just like home.
Nothing to dislike about this place.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Rooms clean and comfortable with adequate washing facilities. Breakfast very good value for money.
Lack of information on how to get around as we had left the car at home. Bus and train timetables would have been useful. Also we had to pay for breakfast as I hadn't realised that bookings done through Booking.com did not include this.
