I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights in mid-July. We received a very warm welcome from the lady on duty (can't remember your name! Sorry!) and was shown our room promptly. We stayed on the first floor with a 4 poster bed. The room was very clean, tidy and nicely decorated. The lodge itself was charming inside and the furniture was mostly made from the same tree, a nice touch. The free tea and coffee was supplemented with fresh milk rather than those horrible uht pots, and the extra provision of free cake was very welcome! There were folders full of activities for wet and dry weather and guides to the local area.
The breakfast selection was tasty and you have a choice of English or cereals/toast etc. I had a full English each day and it was very tasty. All the food, down to the butter and jams were as local as they could make it and it showed! Good food all round.
The stay overall was very good, the staff couldn't do enough for us and I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a peaceful, comfortable stay in the New Forest. I would come back in an instant. More
