Good Hotel Guide Review

When a world-class sommelier and a former hotel inspector open their own restaurant-with-rooms, expectations are high. ‘Consistently excellent’, Gérard and Nina Basset’s Victorian villa in the New Forest does not disappoint. ‘It uplifts the spirits with its warm welcome and its sunny, modern decor in Mediterranean colours.’ Wine devotees find much to like: an open cellar provides inspiration; regular tastings and wine dinners are held. Ask for a tour of the vaulted basement cellars. The Napa Valley–inspired restaurant is the right place for food and wine pairings. In the open kitchen, chef Gavin Barnes serves seasonal menus using local, often organic, ingredients. A characteristic dish: slow-roasted veal shin, confit shallots, savoy cabbage, truffle potato purée. Vegan and vegetarian options are genuinely creative: consider wild mushroom pithivier, roast celeriac, cèpes, broad beans. Afterwards, stay over in smart, ‘attractively furnished’ bedrooms well equipped with fresh milk, a capsule coffee machine, organic toiletries. (‘Quirky, too: several have a bath in the bedroom.’) Three on the ground floor have a patio garden; four have their own roof terrace.

Guest comments

'We have stayed on several occasions, both with and without our children. The best hotel we have stayed in in this country. Beautiful rooms, fantastic food, helpful staff and amazing wines. The outdoor pool is perfect in summer for the children. The rooms are very special. Always made to feel welcome by the owners and their team. A perfect retreat from our busy lives. Not pretentious, just very very friendly! ' - Claire Clark - May, 2017
'We knew Gerard and Nina from the days of Hotel du Vin in Winchester, so know that the hotel, and especially the wine, would be good. We were peased with both the rooms we stayed in. A lot of care had been taken in the furnishing; we each had a bedside light that you could actually read by. Dinner was very goodGerard and Nina and staff are very welcoming hosts. ' - Margaret & Patrick Filsell - October, 2016
