Our hearts sank when we walked in and saw there was a wedding on at the same time, but, we did not even notice the wedding party. The hotel is big enough to have a function going on at the same time without affecting the other guests. Staff are SO friendly. Our girls loved the pool, had it to themselves...

My fiance booked this hotel for our anniversary surprise, after originally booking Hotel Beaulieu, but he then picked here for its location. Upon arrival at 12:30pm from Kent, we wondered if check-in would be available as there was hardly any cars in car park, once we walked into reception we was met by 2 members of staff behind the desk,...

We stayed here with my sister and brother-in-law who have visited this small chain of hotels many times as they're doggy friendly. They needed a ground floor room as their dog is elderly and we were housed on the first floor (there are no lifts) which was fine for us with our younger dog. The room was a little small...

We have been to the New Forest several times and thought that as we can only spare the time for one night we would stay near the centre of Lyndhurst. The Forest Lodge fitted the bill. It is a nice modern hotel with a good pool. We only had a bar meal which was absolutely fine, £4.80 for a fairly...

The hotel is nicely located and reception, bars and restaurant areas all well maintained and comfortable, restaurant and bar staff eager to please helpful and courteous. Unfortunately we had a terrible experience. We were 'upgraded' to a smaller room with no discussion and the four poster bed was broken. Apart from the bed being badly chipped and marked, it creaked...

Good hotel in good location for Lyndhurst and the New Forest. Our Room was a reasonable size and clean and staff all very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a hotel with our dog for the first time and our stay was made very easy by the staff.

Very pleasant stay with helpful staff who went out of their way to cater for a vegan diet. Clean comfortable room. Decent sized swimming pool which we were able to use even after checking out. Great location with footpaths close by into the the forest. Easy access to town.

Stayed here for 1 night with 2 children and 2 adults room very well maintained, breakfast nice, swimming pool was cold at 7am but still nice for the children to play in for a while. We had visited Peppa Pig World for the day and then stayed here which was very convenient as only a few minutes drive away.

I booked this for my parents as an anniversary gift. Booked via the special offers on the website, it was very good value for money. I called the hotel before hand to let them know that my parents were coming for their anniversary and that they are both vegetarian. I spoke to Michelle over the phone who was extremely helpful...

We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. We had afternoon tea on sunday which was delicious as were the breakfasts. We used the swimming pool and sauna which were both great. All the staff were friendly.
