What I liked:

We loved the hotel! it was wonderful, the location is so special, in the middle of the New Forest, the hotel interior is so elegant and a little funky at the same time, atmosphere felt luxurious. Spa facilities were brilliant, we loved the swimming pool & the two spa pools.

What the hotel could do better:

We arrived at the Hotel & I had brought with me a printed copy of our Tablet reservation. Reception said they had no record of us staying. Thankfully I had the printed information to prove I had indeed booked the hotel, but I had also previously called the hotel, confirmed the reservation & booked the restaurant. I knew therefore that they had records of us at some stage since we had booked with Tablet.

So after a very nervous 10-15 minute wait, someone came out of the office & said that they had upgraded us to a suit & apologised for the delay & mix up. It was obvious that something had gone wrong somewhere, but we did not need to know the details & did not ask, having driven from London, we were just relieved that we were able to stay. Everything after this was just perfect, it is a wonderful and special place! Just wanted to let you know, just in case you have had this experience with other guests using your website.

Hotel Description

Some country-house hotels — especially those in areas where the manor-house lifestyle is a thing of the distant past — strive heroically to re-create the atmosphere of 1938. In this part of Hampshire, however, there’s nothing to prove, no chips on any shoulders. Perhaps that’s the key to the casual, almost effortless luxury of Lime Wood, in the New Forest, just outside Southampton.

There’ll be no bowing and scraping, just friendly, unforced, casual help. The house’s history speaks for itself, and a layer of crisp, contemporary interior design does nothing to dampen it. And it’s family-friendly without turning into one big romper room.

What’s the secret? A place like Lime Wood, despite all appearances of insouciance, doesn’t just happen by accident. The minds behind the house’s current boutique-hotel incarnation are hospitality heavyweights, including alumni of some of Britain’s top hotels, both independent and corporate, and the staff is an all-star team as well.

There’s a very fine yet totally unpretentious restaurant, with a resolutely fresh-and-local menu by chefs Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder, and a spa that’s just luxe enough. Lime Wood’s price point means it’s not exactly a budget offering, which makes the lack of pomp and circumstance even a bit more daring — a less confident hotel would be tempted to cram in as much gilt as possible, so as to really earn every last pound. Lime Wood gets the balance just right — which is something worth paying for.
