Check-in at the adjacent Parson’s Collar ‘pub and kitchen’, and key-card access to (unstaffed) Lodge building and bedroom. Good size, clean and modern bedroom.
Bed was a five-foot double, so not as wide as the six-foot type that could easily have been fitted into the space available, and which has become the norm in many modern hotels.

Hanger rail, and open shelves, for clothes. Our upstairs room had a balcony, with a table and two chairs. Good work desk with ample electric sockets, and usb charging sockets (usb charging also at bedside (both sides), and electric sockets also on one side). Desk had a make-up mirror and light; and there was also a full size (floor to ceiling) mirror, and a hairdryer. Fabric-covered chair for the desk, and a second armchair with footstool. Good lighting with dual controls at bedside and by entrance door. Good clean and fresh bathroom with spacious walk-in shower, toilet, and whb. Shower controls can be adjusted before you step into the shower – so no cold/scalding start to your ablutions!

Continental-style breakfast in the Parson’s Collar included fruit juices, fruit, yoghurts, cereals, croisants (regular and choc’) breads ‘gluten free optiond and soya milk available’, cold meats, cheese, toaster, spreads, preserves, teas and coffee,
Price (which included breakfast) was pretty good for this quality, and had discount for ‘use it or lose it’ option. There was an additional offer of £5/day (adult) and £3/day (child) to use the spa/pool facility in the adjacent ‘Solent Hotel and Spa’ (normal day rate £9.50).

Would be happy to stay here again. I don’t normally pass judgement on the ‘suitable for disabled’ but some of our party had limited mobility and they had rooms on the ground floor (which has level access from car park) and their only complaint from one of them was that the toilet seat was ‘a bit low’ and that the toiled floor ‘was cold’.
