Historical Traveller Reviews of Careys Manor Hotel

Great Getaway

from richraj
Food was good with menu being varied, and very interesting. Staff were very welcoming, and professional. We had 4 Post Manor Room - not a lot of room to move with all the furniture but comfortable and clean. As an 'outside observer' the rooms in other blocks did look very small, and I would say in general the hotel did need some decorating as it looks a bit tired in places. The normal leisure facilities within the hotel were good although I was surprised to see some deteriation around the swimming pool when I assume that is fairly new. There is no actual grounds to sit in at the hotel but then you are within the New Forest itself so that may not matter. My main gripes would be firstly in respect of the website - do be carefull with the way the pricing is done particularly the total at the end. Secondly I found information in respect of the Senspa £40 temporary membership misleading when it comes to what is included.

Great spa, terrible rooms

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at Careys Manor earlier this year (June). Our main reason to book the week-end stay was to go to Senspa which we had read about in a magazine. The Senspa was even better than we expected and we have recommended it to all our friends. Equally, we thought the hotel restaurant food and service were really excellent.

In contrast to the above strong points, the (Garden) rooms were a total let down. Our room was small, our bathroom had outdated fittings and measly toiletries and the balcony looked decrepit with stained plastic furniture. For the price we paid, we expected a double room to have a king size bed but instead found a bed which we don't think was even a queen size. We had the impression we were in a cheap motel rather than the £158/night Careys Manor hotel.

We will come back to Brockenhurst for the Senspa and have dinner at the hotel restaurant but we will certainly not stay at Careys manor again. The price/quality ratio can only be described as appalling.

Good but over priced

from jenifa
I stayed here with my husband for a couple of nights relaxing break. The rooms were a good size, clean and tidy - though nothing remarkable. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff extremely friendly and helpful.

The swimming pool was a bit on the cold side. We didn't go into the Spa, though we did try the steam room and sauna, which were fine - though quite small.

All in all a very relaxing couple of days - though it is probably overpriced for what you actually get.

Please I want to go again!

We stayed at this hotel by chance. We had not heard or seen anything about it. We had been let down by the Hotel we had booked for the night, so we decided to try and find the french restaurant that we ate in 10 years ago on our last jaunt through the New Forest.
The restaurant was Blaireau's and we discovered Carey's Manor.
We were greeted by a lovely gent who offered to drive the car round the back and to carry our bags to our room!
First impressions are great, a perfect setting.
Unfortunately the room they gave us was not ready, we walked in to find the bed unmade!! So we went back to reception and they apologised and upgraded us to a bigger room that had the most fantastic marble bathroom, huge bed, an absolutely great room! A knock on the door a few minutes later was room service bringing in a bottle of champagne for the inconvenience of the room mix up!! Lovely.
Went in the spa, restaurant and lounge bar all brilliant - I can't wait to go back!
Some of these reviews say the rooms were small and/or need updating, or that the garden wing is ugly - they have obviously not seen inside them - stunning seems an understatement!!!

Relaxing break in wonderful surroundings

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I spent a precious 3 days away from 3 teenage daughters and very hectic business to celebrate anniversary. We had been to the New Forest many times previously, staying on campsites with children and had often passed Careys Manor. When booking, we were offered either garden or manor rooms. Chose latter, and were warned they were small. Our room was small but very cosy, with four poster bed and wonderful large bathroom. Just a few steps away was the fantastic spa, which I must admit is where we spent most of our time! Treatments were expensive, but these surroundings were 5 star plus.

Food was very good, and bar, although reminding us of Fawlty Towers in decor, had an excellent and well informed barman by the name of Nathan.

Staff everywhere were friendly and efficient. We shall be back, when time allows!

Have just returned from a night away at careys manor for our 2nd anniversary and have to say what a wonderful time we have had.
Had a room in the manor house which was really beautiful and the belgium chocolates were a lovely touch.
Paying the extra to go in the spa is worth every penny, it is sheer indulgence from the minute you enter. we probably spent about 5 hours in total in the spa and relaxion areas and didnt want to leave.
Ate in the evening at blaireus which was top class food, the creme brulee was the nicest we have ever tasted.
The staff in every area of the hotel were so helpful and friendly, especially the spa staff. A wonderful break away.

Went to Careys manor for a birthday treat with my boyfriend and we both loved it. The staff are friendly and will do anything they can for you. The food in the restaurant was yummy, a liitle pricey but worth it for a treat. The spa is great and really relaxing. Rooms are basic but comfortable and have everything you need. Would really recommend.

This was a beatiful hotel set in a fantastic part of the New Forest.I stayed in the Junior garden suite which was huge and decorated to an extremely high standard. The facilities throughout were excellent with a fantastic pool area. The only downside was the gents changing room which was a little tatty.

The food in the restaurant was also exceptional and the service was amongst the best I have experienced.

Will definately be returning.

Thank you

What can I say, but what a wonderful stay my wife and I had at Carey's Manor recently. We were looking for a short relaxing break at short notice. Carey's accomodated us at short notice and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The New forest is such a beautiful part of the UK, and Carey's was so easy to get to but so well located to explore the forest. We were very impressed by the customer service, and the care and attention of the staff. Our short break and stay at Carey's was thoroughly relaxing and hit the spot. We will certainly return in the future. A++ Thank you all at Carey's.

The Best in The Forest

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have to write to say what a wonderful time we have just had at Carey's Manor. The staff were attentive and friendly and helped make us feel very welcome. The food was excellent and what can I say about the health spa, other than possibly the most indulgent and relaxing afternoon we have ever spent, it really is the perfect way to unwind.

Top Local Tips for Brockenhurst

New Forest Save some time for a drive/walk around the beautiful new forest, where the ponies rome freely.

bike hire don't bother hiring bikes from country lanes as the customer service is not good. Go instead to cycle experience as they were really helpful

Getting around If we go again, I will do more research before hand regarding the walks, as they are beautiful, but if you are only on a short break, you might not make the best use of your free time for walking.
