How close it was to the town and just across the road was a great place to walk.
My wife has a bad back and the bed had a very soft mattress which didn't help. But that's just personal preference.
In line with other reviews the host was welcoming and firnendly and the room was clean. If you are just looking for somewhere to stay en route or on business you could do a lot worse.
We were disappointed with the room, which suffered from a high degree of traffic noise. Other reviews have mentioned this, but we found it very intrusive. Although clean the ensuite was dated and rather grim. Having said this the owners make no claims for the hotel that cannot be justified and the basics are all taken care of. We just did not feel that our room offered us anything more than a place to sleep.
We were here for an impromptu 2 night break and had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. The room (no 5) was clean, comfortable and quiet, being at the back of the property. No complaints about the full English breakfast as well as generous helpings of coffee and toast all delivered efficiently by the friendly and accommodating staff. A very charming and pleasant place to stay.
Not so much a criticism but the hotel is on the A35 going into Lyndhurst which is quite busy so a room at the back like ours (No 5) is recommended if you are a light sleeper.
Undisturbed sleep Customised breakfast Friendly and welcoming staff
Shower water pressure
I won't say where we stayed in Lyndhurst last time but, suffice it to say, the Rufus House was far superior. Excellent breakfast - freshly cooked and fantastic scrambled eggs. We'll be back !
No thick cut marmalade.
The friendly and welcoming owners
Nice room & breakfast. We only stayed one night. Handy for Restaurants & pubs.
TV was far too small.
Excellent location for exploring the NF. Friendly welcome. Great breakfast to start the day. Lovely family run B&B hotel.
Friendliness of owners, Ernesto & Etsuko Great English Breakfast Charm of the property itself Location - Perfect for Lyndhurst & New Forest
Had an immediate relaxed Oriental Feng Shui feel to the Hotel when you walked through the door which was lovely and unexpected. Bed was gorgeous and very comfortable with everything very clean Perfect with minor critisms
Not much pressure from the shower but I was on the top floor and used to the one at home which would take your flesh off :) Checkout time could be extended a little from 10.30am on a Sunday? To say 11.30am at no additional cost
You'll have a great stay here. Breakfast with fresh coffee is great and the place exudes a peaceful ambiance. Parking is good ,wifi worked well and all the staff are all charming I didn't have a chance to try the healing Yoga on offer, but am sure to try it next visit. This place really is a gem!.
Clean, welcoming and friendly
The staff and owner were lovely and the location was really good for hiking and the centre of the town.
Late check in time and short breakfast slot ie 8 till 9 30
