Recently we had a visit from a few members of the Austin-Healey Club.
They joined us at the hotel for a lovely evening meal and stay over.
Nothing beats driving with the top down in a well maintained and cared for classic car through the picturesque New Forest.
This was not the first classic car club that has joined us at our hotel for an outing. We have had Bentley’s, Rolls Royce’s, Aston Martin’s and many more.
We will soon have some Classic Porsche 356’s join us at the hotel for a few nights.
So if you admire the craftsmanship and time gone into making classic cars, please feel free to join us at the hotel because you never know what masterpiece will park in front of our hotel.
The view from our main terrace and lounge is perfect to watch the cars drive in!

Sunday lunch times here at Beresfords are probably my favourite of all.
It is very hard work on Sundays but we have some fabulous musicians which keeps me going!
We have a pianist, saxophonist and Stuart has recently visited playing guitar but the BBQ's have had the pleasure of Jorge´ (pronounced Hor-hey) and his companion Luis.
is from the Dominican Republic and Jorge is from Cuba. I have worked with them before at one of my first jobs when I came to UK.

When did you first become interested in the Hospitality Industry?
Having worked in retail in South Africa for 15 years, I developed a passion for ensuring all customers had a great shopping experience and were completely satisfied with the service received.
So when relocating to the UK, I wanted to work in an industry that would allow me to express this passion of mine.
Hospitality is the perfect industry for me to do this.
It is a great joy to come to work daily knowing that I have the opportunity to make someone’s day by providing the best customer service possible.

The Fastnet Race
Being located right in the heart of the New Forest National Park means that the internationally famous sailing town of Lymington is only 20 minutes’ drive away. On Sunday 16th August we were lucky enough to be on a friend’s sailing boat returning from Poole, when we came around the spit of Hurst Castle we were faced with the leading boats in this years, famous, Bi-Annual Fastnet race. A stunning site indeed. Here are a few images to whet your appetite for the next race in 2017 and a few fascinating facts about the race itself over the years.
