Lyndhurst Hotel

I remember staying overnight with my parents in the late 1950's at a hotel called "The Lyndhurst Hotel". This was because my Father had a work related job to do near there and we were on our way to Southbourne for a holiday. I wonder where in Lyndhurst the hotel was and if it is still there.
