hotel testimonials

"Our stay and party night were fantastic thanks to the lovely hotel and the excellent tam that made it all happen! The location, the setting, the lovely standard of guest rooms and the general facilities and accommodation of the hotel itself were all excellent and an overall delight. Compliments to the chef as every dish of our 3 course meals were perfect and beautifully presented. But most of all I would like to thank George who hosted our event. Everyone commented and complimented George on his service and fantastic people skills, it really was a pleasure! I would highly recommend this hotel and it's team to anyone, well done!"

"Wonderful 4 night break, staff were attentive and polite. The Glasshouse Restaurant is excellent, we ate there every night with our 2 children. Our crown room was lovely, with 2 beds for the children. Our only disapointment is that the hotel was a little short staffed on the bank holiday Sunday. We will definitely return!"

Staff all so attentive and welcoming and the food is delicious. Just about to rebook for another short break and perhaps even book over Christmas as part of the package you offer!"

"Had a fantastic 3 nights at the Forest Lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. Our room - A Crown Room - was comfortable and cosy. The food was wonderfull and all the staff friendly, attentive and knowlegeble. We are looking forward to comming back soon. It made our time in the New Forest an wonderfull experience."

"This was our first stay with New Forest Hotels, and most certainly will not be our last, from the staff at check in down to the twins that served our evening meal in the Glasshouse we could not not fault the service levels,  this hotel most definately should carry a four star rating."
Maureen Mitchener - October 2010

"Enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Forest Lodge Hotel. We were so pleased with the hotel. The bedroom was great and the children loved the bunk beds that pulled down from the wal and the pool which they swam in everydayl. The food was excellent and the standard more to a 4 star hotel than a 3 star.Would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning."
Sarah Parker - August 2010
