We stayed at the Forest Lodge for a weekend in March 2012 and found the hotel to be an absolute credit to the New Forest Group with excellent accommodation (we stayed in a Verderer room), food and service.
The dining experience was without doubt exceptional, with first class food and service. The Restaurant Manager (Jean Bui) is superb, providing a first class service and excellent recommendation for wine to accompany your meal.
The Duty Manager, Kieran Okey ensured a professional service front of house and all the staff we encountered including the cleaning staff were polite, friendly and professional.
I have read negative comments on this site and cannot agree with them - many appear to be from people with children, however as we travelled as a couple we are unable to comment on this aspect. We found this hotel to be sophisticated and of a very high standard and would have not hesitation in recommending it. It is not a 'cheap' hotel but we found the prices equalled the quality and service so clearly it proves that you get what you pay for.
