Fair 4.0
ery disappointing
The hotel looked amazing, but.... - dead insects found on the bathroom floor and on the curtains - shower was not working and stuck on boiling hot - due to COVID we had to book our dinner and breakfast slots (easily understandable) BUT also had to order our food (5pm for dinner and the day before for breakfast...) - breakfast was ridiculously small: one small sausage, one rash of boiled bacon, one half baked tomato, one fried egg (overcooked), 4 button mushrooms. One slice of bread cut in halves. No extras unless you paid a ridiculous amount of money. Other options were : one croissant with jam; bread and butter; muesly/cereals. Long gone the English breakfast. - the food at the restaurant was quite pricey and not that good. This is definitely not the weekend we signed up for, having paid £520 for two bedrooms for one night...

Very good 8.0
We were perturbed by some of the reviews on here but have to say that our stay was fine, our room was clean and sizeable and if we ever wanted clean towels we only had to ask and fresh towels or toiletries etc were delivered swiftly. Having to pre book breakfast and a time slot seemed over the top but the manager of the restaurant went out of his way to keep things smooth. Our only real gripe was the appalling Wi-fi, it was non existent in our room with the only real strong signal was in a closed lounge area

Room not properly cleaned during a pandemic
Love Elmers Court and have stayEd there multiple times a year for 4+ years, but unfortunately this trip the cleanliness of the room was not their usual standard, dirty towel, not cleaned or removed from previous visitors, and their used drink bottles still in the fridge. Not very reassuring during a pandemic and I would not be likely to stay there again if I didn’t already know it can be an amazing hotel

st Covid-19 Holiday
Lovely hotel. Staff very friendly. COVID-19 rules excellent felt very safe. Bath enamel missing, water leak under sink. Bedroom decor needs up dating. Furniture old and tired. Isle of Wight ferry next door so great for a day trip. Great base for exploring New Forest.

Fair 4.0
We booked executive room but certainly didn’t seem it, toilet was broke, surrounded by kids , room seemed standard. It was our anniversary and we booked GF cream tea and normal cream tea. Both came as GF and no scones just muffins!!! It was very expensive for what we had. Would not go back

Shame about covid
I'm sure pre Covid this was a lovely place to stay, however the regulations have reduced it to ordinary. There is no housekeeping service, and everything which would have made a stay in a high class establishment an absolute pleasure has been stripped away - from having to book and order breakfast the night before, no information book in the room, having to book a swim, and on and on - what a shame! I know it is not the fault of the establishment but it was very disappointing.

Great overnight stay!
Excellent hotel with really spacious garden Room. Top food at reasonable cost in the bar. Large gardens with wide ranging views across to Lymington yacht harbour and the Solent. Will look forward to returning in the future.

Good 6.0
Ok rooms, terrible service.
Just terrible service in the restaurant. Rude, disorganised and inept. Poor breakfast, average cheap buffet. waited half an hour for raw poached eggs handed to me with waiters thumb touching the eggs during Covid 19 and if you want hot milk for your coffee well you can sing for it.... Family rooms accessed via very steep outside staircase. Rooms comfortable with water and Nespresso. Bathroom ok standard but with mould round window and shower. The hotel location is good near Lymington with gas lots of nice places to eat. Great garden down to the estuary and a park and tennis courts.
