“Fourth visit to Woodlands Lodge”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 via mobile

This is one of our favourite places to take our dog for a few days. The location as absolutely superb with direct access to the New Forrest through the hotel grounds. Our ground floor room had a Conservatory that led onto the gardens, which was very convenient for dog walking. The food was of a very high standard, as usual, served by very pleasant and attentive staff.
The wi fi was a little unreliable at times but this may have been due to recent changes in their computer system. For any discerning traveller looking for a 'dog friendly' hotel, this is perfect. I do not understand why this Hotel is only rated as 3 Star as all of the facilities and location certainly rates at least 5 Star. We shall return.

We have recently stayed at the Woodlands Lodge. The bedroom was very nice, large and the most important the room was spotlessly clean. The staff were great very helpful. We have dined at the hotel and we must say it was one of the best meal we had in long time. Hotel is very good situated and the surroundings are beautiful. We wouldn't hesitate to come back and we are going to recommend this place very highly. Big thank you to Woodlands Lodge staff to make our stay unforgettable.

It was like stepping back into Fawlty Towers. The reception staff were serving dinner and drinks as well. We arrived at 8pm and told that dinner stopped serving at 830 due to the amount of diners - there were 3 tables in. The room was nice but needed a lot of updating. You could see where they had refitted the bathroom and not finished off the work. Breakfast was very slow but nice when it came. Beautiful garden with such peace and quiet all around, a real get away place.

We visited for 3 nights and found the hotel and its staff first class. The food was exceptional. It was only when we got back to the room and checked the bathroom, we found hairs on the floor, cobwebs hanging from the light, the light was held together with masking tape and the waterproof seal was hanging from it ! Strange!. We also noticed bird poo in the breakfast conservatory and though it would be gone by the next morning, but it wasn't,in fact it was never cleaned up. Wonder if it is still there yet. Shame as great hotel, great location, great staff and great food. Just sack the cleaner and get someone who cares!!!

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we appreciate all the feed back received. On a positive note we are delighted that you liked the hotel and that the staff were friendly and provided great service, we try very hard to ensure all our guests have a great stay. I was extremely disappointed that you did not find your room clean.We have experienced a housekeeping staff issue last week, which is now fully resolved, but this is no excuse and consequently I have spoken to all members of staff and we are implementing Management checks daily on all serviced rooms and implementing a strategy of more accountability for all Housekeeping staff to ensure 100% cleanliness consistency amongst the housekeeping team. I know that this does not make up for any problem you experienced with your room but our cleanliness standards are high priority and we hope that you will stay with us again so we can show you. Best wishes and thank you once again for reviewing the Woodlands Lodge.

This hotel was recommended by some dog owning friends who had stayed earlier this year. The Duty Manager was very welcoming and the staff helpful and attentive. Our room, a deluxe double, was spacious and there was plenty of room for us and our dog. The en suite bathroom was of a good size although the shower was a bit small but the bath was very good. They have a paddock at the back which leads directly in to the New Forest. This is not a modern hotel but that is part of its charm as it has a very welcoming feel.
Although the dinner menu was not huge (approximately six options per course and a daily special) there is plenty to tempt you and they also have a bar menu available.
A very good location for touring the area.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are sunnier and overlook the garden and forest. The car park is at the front.

We wanted to find a hotel to take our dog and this fitted the bill perfectly
We had a room with direct access to the garden and the New Forest -the food was good, staff friendly and attentive -
Would come again if accompanied by the dog, she loved it.

Cute lodge, friendly and helpful staff, room of a decent size, shower room ok size, location fine, breakfast good.
Complimentary water bottles and biscuits.
We had a nice time, so no complaints but a few little niggles.
Shower room wasn't cleaned properly.
No liquid hand wash. They did provide a soap bar but it was impossible to wash off. I would suggest a liquid soap dispenser in the shower and above the sink that can easily be topped up.
Shower was nice and big but water pressure was too weak to rinse my very long hair properly.
Shower room didn't really have anywhere to place toiletries. Although a small glass shelf is above the sink.
