Luxury hotels

Any suggestions on really nice hotels in Hampshire, Sussex, Dorset.
Looking to go away for our wedding anniversary, and want something uber luxurious.
Many thanks

As far as fine food goes, anywhere that "Alex Aitken" is working. he was at "Limewood" but has now moved to a Hotel in the Christchurch or Mudeford area. (cant remember the name of the Hotel off hand).

The Christchurch Harbour Hotel and "The Jetty" Restaurant which was formerly "Rhodes South", previously run by Gary Rhodes.

I am very tempted to try this place out after your recommendation above Tony, however I have seen many references in previous posts about your love of food that have included the words; Burger, Kebab and chips! Not quite fine Dining!

That'd be lunch time eating, evenings tend to be a bit more sophisticated, pork chops last night, followed by pancakes and strawberries!

The manor is an excellent hotel, I last went there for my wedding anniversary and I had a great time. Room was first class, and the food really was superb, with an extensive wine list.

I shall probably take the wife next time!!!
