We spent 2 nights at The Forest Lodge as a group of 4 ladies. The rooms were a little small but adequate as we didn't spend much time in them. The beds were very comfortable and we were in a quiet area of the hotel so all slept well.
We had dinner booked for both nights and the food was good, although a little tepid on our first night - much better temperature on the second. The choice was limited but the food was well presented and the prices were reasonable. The service was friendly and attentive.
Breakfast was OK, but we would have liked more choice of fresh fruit and pastries. Only halved grapefruits and whole apples/pears were offered which was a bit disappointing. The cooked breakfast was excellent (especially the vegetarian breakfast).
The pool area was lovely and not well used.
The hotel is really well situated as it is in walking distance of Lyndhurst and close driving distance of Brockenhurst, Beaulieu and Lymington. There are some superb walks nearby.
We were blessed with fabulous weather - unseasonably hot - so we had a wonderful time. All the members of staff were friendly and helpful.
