“5 day stay with friends”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

We stayed with a group of friends. The staff especially Rob and Brad were great and very helpful. The hotel is in a great location to visit all areas of the forest. There are some great restaurants in Lyndhurst, especially The Passage to India and Imperial China. The food at the hotel was also very good, breakfast was plentiful and dinner excellent value. We spent some evenings in the restaurant area of the hotel, and the only thing that would have made this more enjoyable would have been some more comfortable seating with some sofas. The rooms were good, very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay again. Great value.

we stayed last night, very friendly staff, room very clean and breakfast great.
Good value for money I would not hesitate to recommend it.
Read the reviews on trip advisor before we booked. If you listen really hard you can hear noise from downstairs !! The car park is a nightmare to find if you have no sense of direction !! you can smell cooking from the kitchen if you open the window and smell hard !!

We stayed at the Stag for a weekend break with a large group of friends, including 14 children. The staff were welcoming and very helpful when it came to asking for information about walks/shops/playgrounds etc in the area and catering for our large group. The food in the pub was good and so was the breakfast. The rooms are all different, ours was a good sized twin with an en-suite. The room was clean and set up nicely with dressing table, wardrobe, TV, kettle, tea, coffee and biscuits.

The hotel is a five minute walk from the New Forest. Walking from the hotel with a map from the New Forest visitor centre, which is opposite in a car park, we did a 6 mile walk and saw deer, pigs, horses and donkeys.

The Stag has a large car park on Welland Roads, which runs parallel to the High Street.

We really enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to going back.

Room Tip: We didn't stay in it, but room 1 looked like the best room.

We stayed at The Stag Hotel for a weekend. The location is great, right on the High Street, the food was good, the service was reasonably good and the room was comfortably as well as spotlessly clean. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

However, finding the car park is a NIGHTMARE! If you get stuck in Lyndhurst's one way system it can take forever to get round a very small town!!

For future visitors, if you're arriving from the direction of Cadnam, DO NOT go through the traffic lights and on to the High Street as the hotel suggests. Instead, as you approach the traffic lights, turn LEFT down Welland Road (about 50 yards before the lights). The Stag Hotel car park is on the right almost at the end of the road just before it bears left and there is access to the rear of the Hotel from the car park. Much easier than pulling up on a garage forecourt and getting instructions from the Hotel staff only to find you have to navigate the one way system!!!

Room Tip: I noticed that some people had found rooms at the front of the Hotel noisy but we certainly didn'...

Stayed at the Stag in Lyndhurst as a base for exploring The New Forest and surrounding areas.Location is excellent and the hotel itself was good value for money.As several other reviewers have stated,good wholesome English breakfast included in the £80 per night rate for double/twin room with good food served in the evening if you decide to eat in.Room was clean and comfortable but as others have mentioned,traffic noise was a bit of a nuisance,particularly early morning....although this did not spoil our stay there.
One issue we had with the Stag....and almost every pub/bar we went into......was the fact that they are all equipped as dining rooms at the expense of the pub atmosphere where at one time you could sit in a comfy chair and enjoy a drink in a chilled atmosphere rather than on a hard straight backed dining chair at a wooden dining table.After a full day out travelling you need to come back to base,have a few drinks in a comfortable,relaxed atmosphere and not feel you are not sat in a dining room for the night.Must stress though this is not a criticism specifically aimed at the Stag but merely an observation of the pubs we went into throughout our stay.Would like to thank previous trip advisors for the tip regarding the car park at the Stag and its location....travellers take note!!Overall,enjoyed the Stag and found it a pleasant stay and value for money

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel can be noisey due to traffic

Stayed at the Stag Hotel, Lyndhurst for one night on 30/08/2012. Nice town and well worth a visit. The room was comfortable with en-suite and complimentary water, tea and coffee. The full English breakfast was included in the price. Service with a smile from the staff at all times and overall, a very pleasant stay. Free parking included at the rear of the hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms from what we could see were of very good standard.
