When can I check-in and when do I have to check-out?

You can check in from 3pm on the day of arrival and check-out time is at 11am on the morning of your departure.  We are clearly looking forward to your visit – should you wish to arrive earlier or check out later, please let us know and we will do our utmost to accommodate.

What time is breakfast?

To start your day in the best way, continental breakfast is served between 7am and 10.30am daily in the restaurant (From 8am on Sunday and Bank Holidays). If you have a really early start, no problem – we can arrange a ‘Grab and Go’ continental breakfast for you, again just let us know at reception the night before.


Do you have Wi-Fi?

Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, although it is a little eccentric due to our rural location (perfect for keeping the kids off their screens).

Can I book a specific room?

We cannot guarantee specific rooms within a room type. However, we will always try our best to accommodate you if you have a preference.

Are little ones welcome?

Family-owned, we are always so pleased to welcome little guests. With a fantastic children’s menu and a parent-friendly setting in our restaurant, an exciting play area and local to some of the best attractions in the UK, our friendly countryside hotel is the perfect place for a New Forest family break.

Our Deluxe and Grand-Deluxe rooms are perfect if you are travelling with little ones, with either a sofa bed or space for additional pop-up beds.

Cots can be provided but we recommend bringing your own if you can.

Can I bring my dog?

Absolutely! Furry friends are welcome across your collection.

For £15 they will receive their own dog mat and welcome bag of delicious healthy treats, with special bowls to eat and drink from. There are even ‘wash pipes’ for muddy paws fresh back from walkies.

While dining at The Drift, why not bring your furry friend with you, as we have a tone of outdoor space for them to enjoy.

We allow a maximum of two dogs per room and these must be over one-year-old. Depending on the room type reserved, we may later the number of dogs allowed and dogs are not permitted on beds or furniture.

A notification of cancellation after this time, will result in payment being taken for the first night of your stay.  Our pre-paid preferential rates that require advance payment are non-refundable – these bookings cannot be cancelled or amended.
