Good Hotel Guide Review

A hotel that ‘lifts the spirits’ – with regular wine tastings and cellar tours to raise them even higher – the Bassets’ Victorian villa on the edge of the New Forest is an oenophile’s delight. Gérard Basset is an award-winning sommelier, Nina Basset, a former hotel inspector; their combined talents are evident in the attention to detail at this ‘consistently excellent’ enterprise. ‘This is a friendly place, where we’re always made to feel totally welcome by the owners and their team,’ says a regular returnee in 2017. Well-equipped with an espresso machine, organic toiletries and ‘bedside lights you can actually read by’, ‘the immaculately presented bedrooms are very special’. Three have a patio garden, three a roof terrace. ‘And the outdoor pool is perfect, in summer, for the children.’ From the dining room designed to evoke Californian wine country (the host’s passion), watch chef Gavin Barnes at work in the open kitchen. An example of his ‘fantastic’, unfussy cooking: roast New Forest venison, garlic kale, pommes Anna, chestnuts. ‘It certainly pays to ask Gérard to recommend a wine to go with the meal.’ (Claire Clark)

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
