Great weekend break. Friendly staff, good food, nice room, check out time on the Sunday was an agreeable 11.00 am. We did the 10 mile Lyndurst Parish Walk which was great fun, fortunately the Forest Lodge was conveniently located at the end of the route so it was straight to the bar for some well earned refreshment! To sum up...

The hotel is situated in a great location for the New Forest and Lyndhurst. The hotel has an indoor pool and sauna, which we didn't use. The staff were very friendly. The only downside was the so called award winning restaurant. The menu was very plain and nothing like on the website. I had the pork and unfortunately it was...

The family and dog made a last minute booking here for a 2 night stay. It was a very good dinner, bed and breakfast deal which I took a little apprehensively but we were very agreeably surprised. The rooms aren't 5 star but clean and comfortable, the location is fabulous. The pool was a massive hit with the family, the...

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were adequate for a 3 star hotel with everything we needed. They were quite small, and the noise insulation from the next room was not good. The food was excellent, for both breakfast and dinner. The dining rooms and lounges were spacious and very comfortable. The...

This hotel has all you need for a great family break. Fab location close to the town and also many major attractions. With its indoor pool you even have things to do if it happens to rain. Staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble, some of the most accommodating staff I have ever come across. Great family...

The hotel looks lovely from the outside and was built in the 1820s, so has some character. It's well located being about 10 minutes walk from Lyndhurst town centre. I think I would have liked this place better if they hadn't tried to charge us £20 to put an extra bed in the room for our son staying with us,...

I booked 2 nights at this hotel to celebrate my birthday with my wife. The location is very good: outside Lyndhurst, but within easy walking distance. Our room was good; very clean, and the bathroom was spotless. A nice touch was bathrobes in which to go to the pool. But. The hotel appears to be run on a shoestring, particularly...
