Why We Love This Hotel

  • Stanwell House Hotel is a "characterful boutique hotel" (The AA) that holds three Silver Stars for its superior level of quality and service
  • It's near the marina in the Georgian harbour town of Lymington -- a "yachting heaven, New Forest base and jumping-off point to the Isle of Wight", according to Lonely Planet
  • The hotel has two restaurants, including the 2-AA-Rosette Etain restaurant


Stanwell House Hotel is an 18th-century former finishing school on Lymington's high street, half a mile from the New Forest National Park. The town has a wealth of history -- it was once a honeypot for smugglers looking to hoard contraband in nearby caves, and its Saturday market has been running for over 765 years. Today, there's a multitude of white masts in the marina, and the "utterly quaint" (Lonely Planet) cobbled lanes are lined with independent shops.

The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, which has a collection of more than 250 classic cars and motorcycles, is a 15-minute drive away; Buckler's Hard Maritime Museum is 10 minutes' drive from there. Southampton and Lyndhurst are less than 30 minutes' drive from the hotel.

Dinner is served in either the 2-AA-Rosette Etain restaurant or the more informal Burcher & Co bistro (subject to opening times and availability; tasting menus are the same in both restaurants). The Drydock bar offers 25 different gins and a selection of wines, and there's also a cocktail and malt whisky menu.

Garden Rooms are in a modern extension at the rear of the hotel, while Georgian Rooms are in the oldest part of the main building. Suites are split between both parts of the hotel. Dogs can stay in some ground-floor Garden rooms for an extra £15 per dog, per night. Note: the property is a listed building so there is no lift.

The restaurant and duty manager for the evening was not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. We were left waiting for our main meal for over an hour whilst other quests who arrived later than us were served first. It was only after we complained that it became obvious that we had been overlooked. An experienced staff would not have allowed that to happen. Because of this we decided to eat at another restaurant in the town on the following night.
