My husband and I stayed here prior to a cruise. This was an excellent hotel -- located very nicely, excellent accommodations, and a fantastic breakfast! The staff is very friendly and service-oriented. Highly recommend.

A small but perfectly formed cosy snug retreat in the city. While the other pigs are described as a restaurant with rooms, this urban outpost has rooms without a restaurant, though with free transport to Brockenhurst available. The 'comfy' room was a very good size, with the expected nice touches like the retro radio and slightly hipster larder! The bar/lounge...

Unassuming and authentic, this hotel really makes you feel at home. We stayed in a room that had a roll top bath next to the bed, which was, frankly, perfect. The bed was so comfortable, laying on it you were asleep in seconds. Breakfast is self-service - the self-boiled eggs process is brilliant! A lovely haven in a crazy port...

I can't say enough good things about our stay at the Pig in the Wall. From the moment we walked in the door of this small inn, we felt welcome and at home. The rooms are all different and decorated as I would imagine an english country home would look. Our lunch sitting in front of the fireplace was delicious....

It wasn't just the quirky building that made our stay fantastic, the staff were some of the friendliest we have come across. The room was great, as was the evening meal. If you want something different then this is the place.

So loved this hotel. Had a tiny room but I had been warned that it would be. The staff were amazing. Room was great, bathroom was fab. Had dinner there one night. Nice but weird menu. Only problem was the coffee machine - mentioned that it wasn't working on the 1st day. Still not mended by the 4th.

Great spot for a weekend away. We went to escape London for a weekend and found this place by accident. I can't speak highly enough about the staff's friendly service, lovely relaxed home style cooked dinners, and lovely continental breakfasts. Sunday breakfast with rhubarb, tea, muesli, toast and the papers. Pure perfection. Pricey but spot on.

My wife and I stayed for a night recently and were well catered for by Veronica, who was very helpful and polite. The room was fabulous as expected, the evening meal was good considering the limited menu and facilities, but the breakfast was a real disappointment. I have a dairy intolerance and there were no options to cater for me,...

We stayed here for one night on our wedding night and received fantastic service. My husband checked in and left the bags with the staff to sort out and we didn't have to worry about a key as the night staff were there to let us in. We popped in after the ceremony with our photographer to have a rest...

My husband and I visited here in the summer. The surroundings were very nice, (imagine Jane Austin) but it was expensive for what it was. Just had coffees. Glad we didn't order lunch although I admit the sandwiches did look nice.
