Stayed at Temple Lodge for 3 nights in July.
We had a large double bedroom at the rear of the house. It was lovely and big and very clean with extremely comfortable bed. Very big bathroom with nice shower and the room even had a little mini bar with Pringles/Cadbury's/Beer/Wine/Soft Drinks all at very reasonable prices (i.e. same as you would pay in any bar in Lyndhurst).
The owners, Mike and Teresa, are very friendly and do a beautiful cooked breakfast. They even cater for veggies and did me Linda McCartney sausages every day. Everything is grilled so not greasy. Plus good choice of cereals etc. They are really sweet and do go out of their way to help you.
It is a good location (just 3 mins walk to local village).
La Pergola (Italian restaurant) is just a couple of doors down. They do good food. Make sure you book a table though coz were busy and we couldn't get in until after 8.30pm.
Fox and Hounds is a nice pub in centre of Lyndhurst village (in front of the public car park)
Only drawback about Lyndhurst is the perpetual traffic going through the main streets. It was a nightmare!! Really ruined a very pretty English village. It is a shame they don't have some sort of other road going around it so that traffic doesn't have to pass through on the way to other destinations but I suppose being the New Forest they are limited on that!
Good trips to go on are the Canoeing (Liquid Logistics) down near Beaulieu and we also hired bikes (from Cycle Xperience at Brockenhurst - although these are slightly more expensive than the ones in Lyndhurst they were much better quality in our opinion)
