Reviews - Moorhill House Hotel

3AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
Moorhill Burley, New Forest, Hampshire, BH24 4AH
Hidden in the enchanting village of Burley amidst the New Forest, this beguiling 17th Century Hotel offers peaceful, homely surroundings, award-winning dining, indoor leisure facilities, free Wi-Fi and parking. Approaching this inviting Hotel through a long winding drive of sun-dappled woodland, visitors are sure to feel as if they have been transported to a world far removed from the stresses of everyday life. Here beautiful landscaped gardens and captivating woodland help to cultivate an atmosphere of effortless peace and tranquillity. The property itself combines the grandeur and grace of traditional country living with a warmth and friendliness that is almost impossible to resist.

The Hotel offers 31 en-suite rooms, each immaculately maintained and above all, seductively comfortable. As one would expect from a property of this calibre, every room comes fully-equipped with free Wi-Fi access, flat screen TV with Freeview channels, complimentary toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities. Many rooms also offer spectacular views of the surrounding grounds and woodland. The Hotel is committed to preserving the rich heritage of the New Forest and encourages others to do the same. Such a stunning landscape would not exist if not for the keepers, agisters, verderers and the crown. In tribute to their work, the Hotel has named each of its room types after them. So, whether enjoying the luxurious grandeur of the Crown Rooms, the spacious Verderer Rooms, the delightful Agister Rooms or the cosy Keeper Rooms, travellers of all kinds are sure to appreciate the spectacular beauty of their surroundings.

The Burley Restaurant at Moorhill House Hotel opens directly onto a raised patio area with great views over the landscaped gardens to the surrounding woods. The Hotel's strong links with the New Forest are emphasized by its use of local, seasonal ingredients, which is why this AA Rosette restaurant is a popular choice among locals and hotel guests alike. Evoking all that is great about traditional country dining, it offers everything from delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts, tasty bar snacks, afternoon tea and an exceptional dinner menu. With a tantalising selection of dishes, including Pan-seared Venison Haunch, Slow-Roasted Hampshire Pork Belly and Grilled Bream, there is something to satisfy even the most discerning of food lovers. Before dinner, guests can also enjoy a drink in the wood-panelled bar or relax in front of the fire in the lounge with its wide windows overlooking the woods.

There's lots of fun to be had at Moorhill House Hotel. On the lawns guests can challenge family and friends to a game of croquet, or badminton. Whilst those looking for a bit of peace and relaxation will enjoy the tranquil in-door swimming pool and Nordic sauna. Furthermore, the property’s stunning location and impeccable service make it a great venue for weddings and other celebrations. Whilst corporate customers are sure to appreciate the contemplative atmosphere and the Hotel’s two flexible conference rooms.

The Hotel is situated in the village of Burley in the New Forest National Park. It offers plenty of free on-site parking and despite its secluded location, is only a twenty-two minute drive from the M27 and just over half an hour from Southampton. The City offers excellent rail links to the rest of the country, whilst there are local train stations at Sway and Brockenhurst, each just a 15 minute taxi journey from the Hotel. For those flying in, Bournemouth International Airport is just over a twenty minute drive away, or it is an hour and a half to London’s Heathrow Airport. Burley is perhaps the quintessential New Forest village. Surrounded by an area of true outstanding beauty, it has a long association with witchcraft, dragons and smugglers, all of which make for a fascinating day out. The village still practices the ancient tradition of commoning (where animals are allowed to graze freely in the forest), so be prepared to see horses, cows, donkeys and the occasional pig wandering along the main road. Local deer can also be spotted roaming freely in the woodland surrounding the hotel. Fans of the great outdoors will be in their element, and there are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and horse-riding. There are many attractions not too far from Burley, such as the Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World in Romsey, Exbury Gardens and Marwell Wildlife, all of which make for a fantastic day out. Southampton, Winchester and Bournemouth are all just a short drive away as are the beaches at Mudeford and Highcliffe. There’s also the market town of Lymington, where visitors can catch a ferry to the Isle of Wight.

short break in New Forest
Lovely old country hotel for a lovely relaxing short break in the New Forest. We could leave the car and walk straight into the forest or into Burley where cycles could be hired or local buses caught. Very helpful staff and very good value breakfast with plenty of choice. Pool is smaller than expected but ok providing there are only 4 swimmers. Could be a problem if hotel used at a busier time of the year. Creaky floorboards ad to the charm!

Lovely location for weekend break
Hotel good location for forest walks. Very clean and comfortable room, although quite small. Breakfast nicely cooked with plenty of choice. The staff were very efficient and helpful. Only downside, there are steps into the dining room and no lift to access upstairs rooms, so could be a problem for people with limited mobility.

Room
I was a little disappointed with the room, as when i booked on line it did say that the room would have a four poster bed in it. so when we arrived and it did not, i was saddened. my boyfriend was not as i had kept it as a surprise, so he knew nothing either way, and still does not, as i did not want to spoil his thoughts of the hotel. a four poster would have been just perfect !!
other than that everything was wonderful, thank you x

Not such a relaxing Break
After specifically requesting a romantic relaxing room for a special occassion short break, I was very dissapointed with the room which was only average budget hotel chain standard but more annoyed to be woke up by screaming kids in the swimming pool at 7.30am right next to my room, Very romantic ! But I was also left embaressed by the receptionist when discussing why I had been charged the wrong amount, who informed my guest and other customers at reception that I had a cheap room, when in fact it was expensive.

Lovely country hotel
Lovely country escape. Afternoon receptionist we saw on the wednesday morning and evening was most pleasant and helpful in checking us in, showing us to our room and serving at the bar in the evening. I only wish we could have stayed longer to try the food and explore the area more.
For the price though would have been nice to have had a room with a view and breakfast included in price. Hopefully next time this be the case.

Perfect for a peaceful anniversary break
We stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were looking for somewhere comfortable and quiet - this was perfect. Hidden down a lane off the main road, you can walk out of the Car Park at the back and straight onto the forest. Dinner was good quality and well presented. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Don't be fooled by the 'swimming pool' - no more than a plunge bath - otherwise all v good. We'll be back!
