We only ate breakfast in the restaurant but it was very nice. We used the pool and sauna on the last morning which was very relaxing. It...

A very welcome reception on arrival and a nice sized room. The pool isn't huge but you can actually swim in it rather than just splosh about! Food was very good, including brekkie, although the restaurant was like a sauna. The location is perfect for walking into Lyndhurst and there are loads of ponies to see on the other side...

I do hope that you are fully recovered and will come back soon to be able to enjoy the New Forest and all its attractions. We have now turned the heating down in the restaurant so it is more comfortable. Look forward to welcoming you back. Peter

The hotel was in an ideal location meaning we could walk to the village, pubs and restaurants. Also across from the hotel is a public footpath where you can see wild donkeys and horses. The pool was lovely and warm.

We were met with a very friendly greeting at Reception, and lots of tea, coffee, mince pies and chocolate!

This is our second stay at this hotel. The Forest Lodge is not a luxury or a boutique hotel but it is clean and light and the food and service is excellent and they really go that extra mile with bedroom goodies. It also has an indoor pool which the kids love. We also like that the staff are laid...
