“Stunning!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stayed at the Cottage Lodge as a birthday treat and what a treat it was! We stayed in the Rhinefield Room which was absolutely gorgeous, the bed and all the furniture was made from fallen trees which was unique and gave a lovely atmosphere. The bathroom was modern and clean and filled with luxurious smellies. The breakfast was amazing. We chose to eat in our room rather than the dining room downstairs to make it more relaxing - we were given a list of food options (loads to choose from) the night before so that we could put through our choices and a choice of time slot for it to be bought up. I had continental style one morning and traditional English breakfast the next morning and would highly recommend both, couldn't fault any of it.

We ate in the adjoining restaurant (the Fallen Tree) one night. Would definitely recommend a meal there, the nicest I've had in a very long time, but bear in mind it is a small restaurant so I would recommend booking in advance to ensure you can get in as it's too good to miss!

There is a snug downstairs where you can buy drinks (with an honesty box for payment), borrow a bottle opener or tuck into some of the lovely free cakes they provide. They also have a selection of DVD's available for borrowing which was a nice touch.

The Cottage Lodge is in a lovely location, perfect for exploring the New Forest and with some lovely walks close by for an evening stroll. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming.

I had a wonderful stay and couldn't recommend the Cottage Lodge highly enough.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Lodge. We had a lovely warm welcome upon arrival, and were given a pot of tea and offered to help ourselves to free cake! Our room, the standing hat, was spacious and clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable! We loved the log burner, and the shower was huge and very nice indeed. Breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly and attentive, without being in your face. I particularly appreciated the special touches. Thanks Cottage Lodge!

We stayed at this lovely quaint, but efficiently run hotel yesterday.
The room we were given was stunning (James hill).
The staff are warm welcoming and very helpful.
The location is lovely, on the edge of the new forest national park.
The food was great, free cake if wanted, an honesty bar, just typifies, how chilled this place is.
We used the hotels Twisie to venture into the forest and enjoy the autumnal beauty.
Wildlife free to roam in their natural habitat, is always nice to see.
The whole experience is one that I think couples would enjoy, weather a relaxing escape, or romantic break!
I would recommend this place to anyone and defy them not to write and equally honest rave review.

Room Tip: No fitness sorry. This is a place that you would go to escape and feel totally relaxed. My tip is...

We've just got back from a lovely stay at Cottage Lodge. Excellent location, excellent value, great service, and a really comfortable and clean room. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms (Bolderwood) and it was asbolutely fine for our couple of nights away. The bed was very comfy. It was nice that it had it's own entrance on the side of the property although it was at the front and if you're a very light sleeper you may hear the early morning traffic. I can't say it bothered us too much though.
The breakfast was wonderful and really set us up for the day. We found lots of local information about things to do and see and a comfy snug where you could sit by the fire to read through it all...and where you could also help yourself to cake.
All in all it was a great B&B and I would definitely return.
Brockenhurst was a lovely place to spend a couple of days away relaxing and we enjoyed a lovely walk (taken from the information folder at the B&B) and had a nice trip to Lymington by train. We had two very good meals out in the village.

Room Tip: Bolderwood was a smaller room but very comfortable and plenty big enough. A room at the back wou...

Centrally located, good facilities, friendly staff & a great breakfast.
Nice extra touches - homemade cake alongside the tea & coffee in the serve yourself bar.
Also folders full of useful information, including lovely walks through the forest.
Excellent overall & good value for money.

As we stayed in two different rooms over our weekend, a last minute break.while we were,there, the place does its magic on you, so we booked up for valentines weekend!
