hotel testimonials

"I've only just discovered your guest book, having booked our second stay today. We got married at Bartley Lodge on 12th February 2012 and the whole experience was wonderful. The wedding planning was simple and stress free (and the Vegan taster menu we sampled when choosing our wedding menu was an introduction to the talents of Bartley's Chefs_. I would recommend Bartley Lodge to anybody. The staff are friendly, welcoming and competent, the food is incredible and the hotel is beautiful and relaxing. We're coming back just before Christmas!" - Mrs Abi McGough - November 2014

"Thank you all for making our stay a near perfect break. This is the second year my wife and I have stayed in the New Forest and we hope for many more at this time of year.

"My daughter and her husband had their wedding reception at Bartley Lodge Hotel recently. It was a very good choice of venue, the wedding breakfast was in the Baronial Hall which looked splendid and was very comfortable. We enjoyed the most delicious food, served b very pleasant, helpful staff. We stayed overnight and enjoyed a very good breakfast. Before leaving we were able to use the swimming pool which finished off the stay at Bartley Lodge in a really good way,."

Mr & Mrs Green - July 2012

"We spent four nights at Bartley Lodge and would like to thank the staff (all were lovely) for their friendliness and excellent customer care. We were nervous about taking our dog because of the inevitable mess, our room was no less clean and was still excellent quality. Thank you to chef for accomodating my special diet."

"I Just wanted to say a very big thank you to Emily and all the staff at Bartley lodge for making my 30th birthday amazing !!! We had afternoon tea with 38 friends, the staff couldn't be more helpful and polite. The food was delicious, service fantastic and hotel clean and welcoming !! Will definitely be returning and many of my friends have said the same, so thank you very much once again."
Michelle Vincent - November 2011

"Thank you for a lovely stay in your hotel! My kids and dog had a lovely time and the Breakfast was superb. My only gripe would be that the put up bed kept falling apart every time my daughter moved! This would not prevent me from booking again, we hope to return next year!"
Lisa Barber - August 2011

"Just back at work after a super long weekend at your hotel - Bartley Lodge. Both my husband and I and our two boys (aged 5 and 3) loved it there and we found all staff very friendly and approachable and the facilities to be great. We had never been in the New Forest before, and we were impressed by the suggestions for activities and things to do and see given to us by your receptionist. As a result - we had some super days out and about before heading back to relax by the pool and the dinner. The food was also great and we loved the opportunity to eat separately to our kids (who ate at around 6.00/6.30). We will be back!"
Ms Arnesen-Carnell - August 2011

"What a lovely place to stay, staff were fantastic, everyone was so happy and friendly. Food was gorgeous and the location of the hotel is superb. The room was manageable but the bathroom a bit on the small side but will definitely return again. Thank you Bartley Lodge for making our weekend a relaxing and enjoyable one! Kirsty & Rob"
Kirsty Winchester - August 2011
