Promenades and Poop Decks in Portsmouth

A travel blog entry by mashfam


... in Hong Kong. It will be sad that this great adventure has come to an end but I am also very much looking forward to being home again. I have enjoyed every minute of the trip, perhaps with the exception of the day I lost my bag, but I don't think my brain can take in any more history or information for now - certainly not doing it real justice. Time to go home, put my feet firmly on the ground for a while, and start planning and saving for the next smaller ...

Brass monkeys in Ashdown Forest!

... the heating; it shot into life briefly and then stopped. An hour later, while trying to make the morning's first brew, we realised the gas had run out! I hastily switched cylinders and we were soon whistling away to a hot kettle. The gas heating now worked and we were briefly able to strip a layer off in the tropical (well, nearly) heat. The generator still didn't want to play, so we were resigned to using up the leisure battery.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Pig Brockenhurst

    Great but..........


    Me and my partner stayed at the Whitley Ridge and really enjoyed it apart from one thing.... the receptionist was really annoying - she came across very false and could talk for england (or China!) even though me and my partner had had a long drive and just wanted to check in and un-wind.

    Despite this very minor point, the stay was amazing! The food was out of this world, I am pregnant and the chef went out of his way to make sure I had a fabulous meal.

    The room was lovely - clean, spacious and tastefully decorated.

    Service good throughout, the buffet breakfast was extensive but it would have been nice to have a cooked breakfast included in the price.

    Cant wait to go back!!!

    Luxurious country house


    We booked Whitley Ridge at the last minute and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Our room (room 18) in the modern annex to the main house was very large, beatuifully furnished and had all the luxurious extras like fluffy bathrobes, molton brown bath products and complimentary bottled water. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in, and the pillows were amazing. The communal lounge was very comfortable with a great selection of newspapers and magazines, wine, tea and snacks, and the fire was always roaring (thanks to Alfonso - the most helpful member of staff you will ever find!). We chose not to eat in the Michelin star restaurant at the hotel, but instead had dinner at the bistro in town with the same owner, which we enjoyed. Continental breakfast was included, and was superb (poached fruits, fruit salad, french yoghurts, fresh baguettes and pastries). A cooked breakfast was available at an additional cost. Would highly recommend it.

    Amazing food


    Having stayed here with a group of friends last year I was keen to return with my partner to eat more fabulous food.We were not dissapointed.We actually stayed as a promotional deal from a daily newspaper where you paid for the meal but got the accomodation free.We had the most fantastic meal and were made to feel very welcome.I would highly recommend that you go here if you love food and want to try something a bit different.

    New Years Eve


    The Food was good but service not great. I stayed at this establishment over the New Year [2005/2006] A New Year Package costing £700 for 2 nights for 2 persons including breakfast and; A Cocktail Reception, a gastronomic Meal with chosen wines to compliment each course[5]and of course a glass of champayne to toast in the New Year, this on New Years Eve,and dinner from the daily dinner menu on the second or first day of the 2 nights. Also included were Tea with Home made cakes and biscuits.

    Style over substance


    A rather disappointing week end..We have been to Whitley Ridge twice before when Rennie & Sue Law were running it and it was a real treat. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and the food was excellent. The couple was very professional, always present but discreet. Now it is all very different. The surroundings have been tastefuly rearranged. The garden with the pond is beautiful and inside the rooms have had a make over. Our room number 12 is to be avoided at all costs. Very noisy and hot. The proximity of perhaps a boiler makes it impossible to rest in the afternoon after much enjoyable walking in the area. At night you may be startled by the noise once or twice. As for the food, we were very unimpressed on the first night with our dinner. As a main course I was presented with a "smoked haddock and lobster risotto" which was lukewarm, tasted just fishy (it may have been lobster flavoured?) topped with a cold poached egg. This was sent back to the kitchen and what returned was totally different: nice and full of lobster bits. As for the pudding, a passion fruit souffle, it was eggy, not sweet and the sauce was too sharp. On Saturday, the dinner was very nice so we wondered if this was because the chef was there! Anyway in all a very expensive week end and the sad feeling that we will not go back there again.

    Special Place


    Very special venue. Recommended for a romantic weekend away. The hotel's restaurant is amazing, in terms of food quality and service. It can be pricey, but is worth it.

    The area is superb, especially for visiting Beaulieu, going on walks, cycles etc.

    The rooms are quite simple and reasonably sized, but the hotel and the grounds make up for it, they are charming.

    It is also worth checking out the 'Simply Poussin' restaurant in Brockenhurst for a more relaxed and affordable experience!

    What an amazing place!!


    Having come back from Le Poussin at Whitley Ridge, I am now so relaxed!

    Great food but at a price


    This hotel is now known as "Le Poussin at Whitley Ridge" We stayed for 2 nights in August for a weekend on a DB+B basis. We chose this hotel because of its small size and promise of fine meals.

    Feast in the Forest


    My wife, her 92 year old mother and I spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel standing in its own grounds in the New Forest just outside Brockenhurst. We were made to feel genuinely welcome from the moment we drove up to the door by the friendly, helpful and superbly trained staff. The food was fabulous and by the third night almost overwhelmed us.

    On the whole it was a very peaceful place and one could walk into the forest from the hotel grounds. However, there is a railway line near the rear of the hotel which can be noisy if one sleeps with wide open windows .

    My wife and I intend to return on our own and revisit the fantastic menu, but perhaps just for one night next time!



    A very small and very charming retreat - I can't wait to return.
