Good Hotel Guide Review

The fourth addition to Robin Hutson’s drove, this little Pig, in a ‘rambling’, turreted Gothic manor house, is ‘a relaxed version of a country hotel, noticeably enjoyed by guests of all ages’. ‘The welcome could not have been bettered,’ Guide inspectors say. ‘We were greeted with a smile and charming efficiency.’ Take your pick from bedrooms in the ‘imaginatively converted’ main house, dovecotes and shepherds’ huts: each is individually styled with mismatched furniture, vintage touches, woollen blankets. ‘Our room had an enormous, comfy bed, good lighting, a large wardrobe; reclaimed-wood floors, retro prints, a Roberts radio. The huge windows overlooked grazing sheep.’ After a morning on the white sands of Studland Bay, relax on ‘squashy’ sofas in the ‘delightfully quirky’ public rooms. In the conservatory dining room, Andy Wright’s ‘simple, appetising’ dishes, perhaps chargrilled chicken, purple mizuna, garden pickles, use produce from the three kitchen gardens. Expect ‘a treasure trove’ at breakfast. Sister Pigs make their homes in Brockenhurst, Southampton and Pensford (see entries).

Guest comments

'Stayed in the Bothy which was wonderful and secluded, in the walled vegetable garden. Quite snug but beautifully designed and best stocked mini-bar I've ever encountered . Excellent staff and wonderful location. As the restaurant is very busy at the weekend it can get a little overwhelming for guests of the hotel, but there is a separate area for residents which was a welcome retreat. Loved the full breakfast -especially the white pudding and homemade granola ' - Danielle Hommel - March, 2017
'For my wife's birthday, they d upgraded us to the Bothy, a wonderful thatched solus room inside the bountiful walled kitchen garden. Eclectic, shabby chic - which is fun - but more important, everything in the room worked. The '25 mile' dinner menu was difficult to choose from because we wanted to try so many things and everything we did choose hit the spot. Great choice of three breakfast prices. ' - James Waghorn - November, 2016
