Beautiful clean room, swimming pool was lovely. Couldn't do enough for us. The chef even came out and offered to cook us something that wasn't on the menu as my husband is a fussy git lol. Would recommend this hotel. Great value for money Alison and mark Kent

We stayed here for two nights while we visited a couple of local attractions (sky diving for me and Peppa Pig World for my daughter). The hotel was ideally located for both activities. Our room was well appointed and suited us perfect. My daughter loved the pool, and as we were the only guests who appeared to use it, it...

We stayed stayed two nights, and had a good room - the bed was comfortable and the room spacious with a clean bathroom where everything worked.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed our 2 Rosette restaurant and the hotel location. Despite the quiet location, the advantage of being able to walk into Lyndhurst is a massive attraction for our guests. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We have one of the family rooms after the doorway to the pool. It was fairly quiet since it was towards the end of the building. The rooms were clean and functional. Bathroom was a little small, dark and utilitarian. The hotel is in a good location. You can take a walk into town without driving. Another reviewer did mention...

Thank you for your review and we are please you had a pleasant experience at the hotel. Just to point out, it is the hotel which is credited with 2 Rosettes not the restaurant. We used to operate with segregated menus for different areas but we found the guests wanted one menu, changing daily which they could eat where they...

We went to the forrest lodge just for afternoon tea. It had very nice sandwiches and cakes however the scones were a little bit dry. A nice lunch room with comfy furniture. Staff were helpful and left us in peace to enjoy our time.

We stayed here for three nights. Our room was adequate in size but dated. Neither bath nor basin plugs worked properly. The toilet seat and shaver point were broken and the net curtains fell down. However the beds were comfortable. One day the room was not serviced fully. We were given a very limited and repetitive dinner menu. Pork belly...

We got given a Red Letter night away and chose this hotel as it wasn't overly far from home. Upon arriving the reception staff member was friendly and pointed us in the right direction to our room.

We keep going back to the Forest Lodge after trying a number of other hotels in the area, as the rooms are just right and the meals are very good too. We have paid a lot more for shabby rooms and poor food, as Lyndhurst is a continual magnet for tourists to the New Forest and some hotels seem to...
