Family Friendly

BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge Hotel is an ideal destination for families with children of all ages wanting a stress free break in a central New Forest location. There is plenty to do at the hotel, you can take afternoon tea in the gardens or on the decking, play in the small courtyard gardens or relax by the pool while the children have splash in the heated indoor swimming pool.

This contemporary town house in Lyndhurst is within easy reach of many of the local children’s attractions such as Paulton’s Park and Marwell Wildlife, not forgetting the miles of New Forest National Park, which are home to the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary, New Forest Reptile Centre and the New Forest Wildlife Park.

As with all our New Forest Hotels we have a collection of family rooms specially designed for your enjoyment as a family with secluded bunk beds, so children can share your room but in the comfort of their own space. We also provide cots and bed-guards for those tinier individuals. A number of the family rooms are also large enough to take an extra bed so families of five won’t miss out on staying together.

Our friendly hotel staff will do all they can to make sure that each of you has everything you need to enjoy your family break at BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge Hotel. The chefs have spent time creating a special à la carte menu for children so they can also enjoy tasting the delicious food and we have highchairs so even the younger children in your party can eat comfortably in the dining room. We will happily organise an earlier dining time for children to fit in around their bedtime. However, if you decide that you would like to dine without your young ones our staff will happily provide a baby listening service so you can have a relaxing dinner or drink in the bar while your little ones sleep.

If you are already tempted by a family break with us you will be pleased to know that that all children under the age of 2 (infants) stay and eat for free when sharing your room. Children aged three and over will be charged as follows:

                                        Bed & Breakfast                Dinner, bed & breakfast
Aged 3 - 12 years -                   £5.00                                     £17.50
Aged 13 and over -                    £10.00                                   £35.00

All prices are per child, per night

To ensure that the room rate quoted includes the cost of your children and we allocate you a suitable room please inform us of the number and age of children in your party at the time of booking.
