Very welcoming host. Comfortable bed. Lovely choice of breakfast options esp. Elizabeth's homemade vegetarian sausage. The homemade cookies in the room were also excellent. Elizabeth was very knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating, she allowed my friends to join me for breakfast on my last morning, they felt their breakfast was fantastic for the price she charged and they thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thanks for a lovely stay Elizabeth and Martin. You gave me a great base for a week, and being so close to shops and the Hythe Ferry is so useful for many reasons.

Tips:

Visit Southampton by day, stay in Hythe at night. Its quiet, pleasant, and you get a great views across the river. You can experience a trip on the Hythe Ferry as part of your visit, and it great to know you have a great place to return to every night, with Martin and Elizabeth making you feel so welcome and safe.

Definitely recommend Maples. Excellent breakfast, every home comfort in your room you could want, lovely big bed, sooo comfortable with gorgeous pillows to ensure a good nights sleep. Very Covid aware, we felt very safe. Owners always wore masks we really appreciated. Very friendly couple and nothing was too much trouble.

Tips:

Two lovely restaurants we recommend are The Galley and The Boathouse, both in Hythe with excellent views. Food great in both restaurants. The Galley food was excellent I could recommend the Monkfish wrapped in pancetta but all food was brilliant and large portions too. The Boathouse has a varied menu and all.meals were enjoyed by all.

We booked 2 nights at the Maples for a wedding in Beaulieu. Elizabeth and Martin were more than accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Each part of the stay was excellent. The room was incredible with all the amenities you would need and more. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and dietary needs were catered for with ease. Elizabeth and Martin were both friendly and approachable and were incredibly kind, even though I'm sure we weren't the easiest of guests with our timing issues. They have thought of every detail at the Maples and it really shows. I would definitely stay again. Excellent value for money, considering the standard of the hotel and the service offered.

Super location for wedding guests.

Both times Elizabeth and Martin have gone out of their way for us and our daughter who is now nearly 3. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are lovely and clean, the breakfasts are cooked to order and its a lovely, quiet place to stay. We will definitely be back again.

We had a lovely stay. Elizabeth and Martin are lovely hosts, very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very nice, well cooked and plenty of choice, nothing too much trouble for them. Our room was spotless and nicely decorated, loved the high ceiling and tall window and the very large bed. The en suite was a little on the small side but very modern and had everything we needed, great shower, lovely white fluffy towels. The soap was lovely, gorgeous smell. We also had coffee/tea facilities in our room.

Elizabeth our host was lovely, she felt more like a friend than a host, she made our stay extremely comfortable by ensuring we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were amazing, great portions and absolutely delicious!!! Her restaurant choices were spot on although the Indian was closed on the Tuesday evening so we popped into Southampton which was only 15 min drive away.

Tips:

Highly recommend the Seashells restaurant on the water front. Request a sea view and you can enjoy watching the ships come and go between meal courses. The Coriander Spice Indian restaurant in Southampton was also really nice too. Bagnum Riding school for horse riding trek (even for complete beginners) was amazing!!! Be sure to visit The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Bucklers Hard and Lymington too, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed

It is with great pleasure that I can say the Maples is the nicest, friendly and cleanest B&B I have ever stayed in and I’ve stayed at quite a few over the years. The room was very cosy with all the niceties you would have in your own home. Breakfast was excellent with varied menus to suit guests dietary requirements. I would not hesitate to book another stay at the Maples.

This was our 5th stay at Maples. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Lovely place. Elizabeth and Martin are lovely hosts. First class breakfast. They have planned well for social distancing . Everything is so clean. The guest house is close to New forest attractions and ferry to Southampton. Can't fault anything.

Tips:

Seashells Restaurant is close by. Good food and views across Southampton water. Good fish and chip shops and tea room in Hythe.

Elizabeth and Martin are very warm and welcoming. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable with nice decor. The breakfast menu was excellent, offering many choices, catering for different tastes. The food was very good and Elizabeth and Martin were attentive and considerate.

Tips:

We would recommend 'Philpott's fish and chips' shop and the 'Seashells' restaurant, both a short walk from The Maples. There are plenty of shops close by which was very convenient. The nearby ferry service to Southampton was very easy to use and included a ride on the quaint pier train. We were spoilt for choice with many things to do and see in Southampton. The medieval walls are fabulous. Hythe itself was very relaxing, simply watching all the comings and goings of boats and vessels of all shapes and sizes. Close by in Beaulieu we visited the National Motor Museum which was excellent. It also includes the Abbey, ruins and House, so a great deal of heritage to enjoy.

I cannot fault The Maples. This was the second time we had stayed (we took some friends this time). The owners are very welcoming, the bedrooms have everything you could possibly need, the beds and linen wonderful, and the room and en-suite spotlessly clean. Perfect, Oh, forgot to mention the amazing breakfasts.

Tips:

Try “The Amalfi” Italian restaurant in Hythe and the train which will take you along the pier to catch the ferry to Southampton. Very quaint.

This is my third stay at The Maples - this one was even better than my last visit two years ago; the venue was already near the top then. The addition of a microwave to their breakfast room was welcomed to provide a variation towards the evening meal possibilities.

Tips:

The purpose of my visit was to attend the maritime training establishment further along the road at Hythe. This is the closest B&B venue and is within 10 minutes walk of the training centre and even closer to Hythe town facilities.

Elizabeth and Martin were very welcoming a great help to us. The food was really fresh and tasty.

Tips:

The one negative thing that surprised us was that the shops close by 5pm. Otherwise the places we have been to such as Seashells restaurant, which the entrance puts you off, was surprising nice inside and the food was also very good. The service was also good with nice staff. Then there was the Ebenezair Bar who also was very nice and had a nice wellcoming atmosphere with good food as well. There is the ferry in walking distance, just 5 minute walk and one takes the train to catch the ferry, just 5 minutes to the ferry and from there you can go to Southampton and Isle of Wight. There are many things to see there. If you like nature don`t miss a walk in the New Forest there in Hythe. There you can see the wild horses roaming about. Most are very friendly. Well a very nice experience in all, never to be forgotten.

We were made most welcome from the moment we arrived. We had a well appointed family room and downstairs in the breakfast room was a fridge for guest use and a second one with fresh milk in it. Our room was quiet and had a lovely shower room. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of towels and dressing gowns for us Breakfast was one of the best we’ve tasted with home made jams etc and wonderful coffee.

Tips:

We went on the train along the pier followed by A ferry that took us to the other side of Southampton Water. The Hythe ferry was within a few minutes walk of the guest house.

A delightful B&B located in the heart of Hythe. Elizabeth and Martin are incredibly kind and run a lovely hotel. Our room was cozy for two with all the necessary amenities but the sweet personal touches, like local Dorset tea, robes and a tin of homemade cookies made it feel extra special! Walking distance to lots of food, restaurants, shops, the High Street, the ferry to South Hampton, the marina & more. The breakfast was an absolute delight, made to order with local fresh ingredients and attention to detail. The Maples was a great choice for our 5 night venture to the English countryside. Accommodating, clean, friendly and we highly recommend a stay with Elizabeth & Martin.

Tips:

Forest Spice has great Indian food, try the curry and cider at Ebenezers, definitely take the ferry to South Hampton for a fun day trip...

Just check the days local restaurants are closed as this limits where you can eat.

Our hosts, Elizabeth and Martin, were very welcoming and almost immediately we were totally relaxed in The Maples. Our room was extremely comfortable with all the facilities required and our hosts served up really hearty breakfasts before our days began.

Tips:

Visitors must see the unique Hythe Ferry train that runs along a lengthy pier so passengers can catch the ferry to Southampton. Whilst our stay had limitations on what we could see, we did make the short journey to Calshot, where Southampton Water meets The Solent. At Calshot there is a long pebble beach lined with beach huts, a castle, an indoor adventure activities centre for the kids and ideal spots where you van watch the various ships and ferries on the water.

Lovely location, very quaint. we would highly recommend if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Southampton, Hythe is just a 15 minute ferry trip across the River right into the heart of Southampton City.

Tips:

Seashells Restaurant in Hythe, a short walk from Maples, with views across Southampton water. Walk along Hythe Pier, or take the train. Hopefully you'll get to see one of the big ships. Drive across new forest, beware of the wild horses. Drive to Calshot Castle and Lepe for stunning views across to the Isle of Wight. National Motor museum and house at Beaulieu is well worth it.

Tips:

Not to be missed is a ride on the little train down the pier followed by a ferry trip across to the city centre. Lots to see & do here as well. A walk on footpaths from Beaulieu to Buckler's Hard. The New Forest for walkers, cyclists, explorers of all persuasions.

Tips:

A reasonably short walk brings one to the Hythe Marina where the "Boathouse" serves good food, although it can be a bit noisy in the evenings. If you like Indian food then the "Forest Spice" is a short walk away and is very good, but be sure to book, especially at weekends.

I was only staying for one night as I had a nearby cycling event the next day. I found the host, Elizabeth, to be very welcoming.My room was small but ideal as I was travelling alone, a small sink in the room and the shared shower/bathroom across the hall were very good. The ceiling fan/light were very welcome as well on what was a warm muggy night. Elizabeth let me know about restaurants in walking distance, recommending a particular Italian, amalfi, which I visited and found to be excellent as I wanted a good pasta dish that night to set me up for the following day.Elizabeth arranged a good porridge breakfast for me (earlier than the usual breakfast time) which was excellent and much appreciated. All in all I would definitely stay again.

Tips:

With the New Forest outside the front door options are numerous e.g walking, cycling, exploring etc. A train ride along the famous pier & a ferry trip into the city will bring the history of the old maritime town to life again Tudor House is worth a visit. The Maples has a comprehensive list of places to visit & local eateries so every taste can be catered for- literally!

Martin and Liz run the best B&B in the area. They make you feel like you’re a special guest in their home. The rooms are comfy and the location is great. The best part is the breakfast. Freshly cooked to order using local ingredients with loads of choices for every taste.

Tips:

Go try the Hythe ferry and wander around the shoreline looking at all the ships passing.

Friendly and warm atmosphere - Elizabeth was very attentive. Room was clean and suited our needs perfectly. Worth staying just for the breakfast alone. Our 2nd stay at the Maples, but won’t be our last. Highly recommended.

Tips:

Hotel is located in Hythe, so cafes, coffee houses, pubs etc are all within walking distance, as is the Marina ad ferry if you fancy a trip to Southampton.

Martin and Elizabeth gave us a warm welcome on our first visit, the second welcome was a pleasure as they remembered us well, and the third for just one night was like a return home. Thank you so much.

Tips:

Calshot Castle and Calshot leisure Centre are at the very end of the New Forest on the point where the Solent meets with the Southampton water. Spectacular views, shipping galore, the castle opens on April 1st.The leisure centre has a full size Velodrome for speed cycling; the highest and widest indoor rock climbing walls with scary over hangs, are amazing and well attended by expert climbers and safety kit; a great cafe, with outdoor and indoor tables,and an indoor ski slope also used by children on sliding ringos. Read the history of the hangar on boards in the cafe. It was used in the wars to build sea planes and mulberry floating docks for the Normandy landings.

A clean and well presented B&B. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was Excellent!! I had a single room, which was small but well appointed. It had a wash basin, although I shared a toilet with a couple of other rooms. The price I paid reflected that and was very good value for money. I would certainly stay again

Tips:

I took a trip down the pier and back on the ramshackle but atmospheric train. If you look out for it, you can sit in the seat used by King George VI in 1944.

The attention to detail stand out from my visit to The Maples. Several little things that make such a difference were the biscuit tin in the room containing local cookies, the local toiletries in bathroom, fresh milk in guest fridge located in the dining room together with the invitation to bring in takeaway food and eat in the dining room with plates supplied. Both the proprietors were must charming, great welcome upon arrival and made to feel valued. Thank you

Tips:

Stayed on a Saturday evening and found it difficult to find somewhere to eat, Hythe is not overloaded with restaurants so booking is essential, a good tip is to catch the ferry across to Southampton where you will be spoilt for choice

Fabulous find! We had such a relaxing stay, it was a shame it was for only one night. The beds were so comfortable and the attention to details were what I would expect in a 5 star hotel; toiletries, breakfast selection, home made cookies were just a few. We were welcomed by the hosts and they went out of their way to provide us with a cosy yet luxury stay.

Tips:

The house is situated in the middle of the village so easy walking access to shops and restaurants. We had dinner at Ebenezers, a local restuarant/bar and they couldn't have been friendlier. The food was freshly cooked and very reasonably priced.

A most hospitable and welcoming hosts who run a high quality establishment with all the comforts of home. The place is spotless and quiet and very well managed. The breakfast is superb and one of the best I have enjoyed during my trip to England. The freshness of the berries, eggs, cereal and so on was a treat. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and so comfortable. This is one place we will return to on our next trip. A highly recommended B & B.

Tips:

The town of Hythe is historical and very pretty. The bus ride to the Beauileu estate passes through beautiful countryside and a village on the edge of the estate. The marina is also of interest and the train ride from the pier to the ancient train line along the pier a true draw card. Watching the various liners departing was also fascinating. There is much to see in this little gem in the Southampton region.

This is a fantastic B&B right near the waterfront and Marina. Hythe is a lovely village well worth a visit and a great place to relax. I was there for the weekend on my own but had a wonderful time. There were raft races near the Marina in aid of the RNLI on the Sunday, it was good fun to see all the people who took part and all the crowds who turned out for a very worthwhile cause.

As your welcome pack in your room states: the Maples is a cosy and welcoming place to arrive and stay. I fully agree. The property is maintained to a very high standard; very clean and well organised by Martin and Elizabeth; with additional room service attendants to look after the rooms each day. This was my first visit to the Maples & to Hythe - I've booked again for another two stays later in the year; whilst taking courses at the nearby Marine training establishment.

Tips:

The Maples has space for four cars to its front. There is no street parking outside but there is a large pay and display car park [max stay time is 20 hours] opposite the front door. Fortunately, some New Forest Car Park permit/time clocks are available from the owners that can be used to park for free for overnight stays AND for many car parks around the New Forest area. Most useful if touring within the New Forest :-). The Maples is located within easy walking distance of many multi-national Take Aways, many small, varied, shops as well as the only supermarket [Waitrose]. For those taking taking courses at the nearby Marine training establishment, this is an ideal location to stay.

Thank you for a very pleasant stay. So many thoughtful extras - fresh milk, home-made biscuits, coffee machine, face flannels, robes etc. Always a little wary when taking a young child away but for my 6 year old grandson it was a great success. He was delighted to be allowed a pot of tea to himself! I almost forgot to mention the delicious cooked breakfast - & fresh berries very welcome.

Tips:

The trip on the ferry & train were a highlight and the convenient bus stop and taxi rank made travel without a car very easy. Seashells restaurant proved a hit with the grandson. Would love to have stayed longer than the two days we had.

The Maples was a lovely experience, thank you Elizabeth. A wonderfully kept B&B in a lovely wee town. It was spotless. My only small gripe was the communal shower but it was really not much of an issue.

Tips:

I had a fabulous meal experience in Seashells Restaurant which is little more than 150m from The Maples.

Excellent stay, will definitely be coming to stay again!! Every need that we required was catered for, we were made to feel so at home. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic & there is not one bad thing you can say about the hotel/stay!!

Tips:

If you don't find somewhere you would like to eat you can get a takeaway & sit in the maples dining room which we preferred because we had a baby so it was nice & quiet!! We also couldn't go in some places with the buggy so this was such an easy option for us!!

The attention to quality and detailed care at the Maples is outstanding. Every area in the hotel appears as though it has just been newly decorated and refitted with the highest quality equipment available. Nothing has been overlooked from the emergency sewing kit to the espresso coffee machine in the bedroom or the brown sauce to complement the fabulous breakfast in the pleasant dining room. A very enjoyable stay with very friendly hosts.

Tips:

Be sure to take a train ride along the pier even if you do not intend to use the ferry to Southampton. The Sea Shells restaurant close by is very good and offers a free bottle of wine for two people from the Maples when dining.

Our stay at the Maples was excellent. The accommodation was perfect and Elizabeth and Martin were so kind and helpful we couldn't have asked for better hosts. I was pleasantly surprised to realise how child friendly the Maples is and that made our stay even better. Added to that I am now very partial to herby mushroom! Thank you very much and hope to revisit again in the future!

Excellent - right down to the homemade cookies on the tea tray. Everything that you might need was in the room. Owners could not have been more helpful.

Tips:

You can't really go wrong with eating out in Hythe. You can even get a takeaway and eat it back at The Maples in their comfy breakfast room. Go on a trip to Southampton via Hythe pier - rickety train, then Ferry over the water - oldest train pier in Britain. Children would really enjoy it too.
