Lovely cosy and extremely friendly place which is well located. We had a very relaxing break.

Tips:

The on site restaurant is lovely. Food piping hot (which I love) and perfectly sized, full of flavour and nicely presented. Plenty of other eating places around for variety too. Bikes to hire can be picked up locally and lots of places to walk. Everything you need is on the doorstep. Would definitely go back!

We were so impressed with the warm welcome, personally named parking spot, tea and homemade cake on arrival served in cosy snug room. The room was fabulous, unusual natural wood fittings, warm ,spotlessly clean and so comfortable. The restaurant attached served one of the best meals we have ever had. Excellent food cooked by an obviously talented chef. Breakfasts were fabulous .

Tips:

We didn’t need the car for the whole stay (3 nights). Bike hire, restaurants, coffee bars, New Forest walking all just down the road.

Wonderful place with great staff, friendly and efficient. Home-made cake a lovely touch. Brilliant breakfast choices and what was served was excellent. Well done to all the team.

Tips:

We ate at the White Tails restaurant on Saturday night (MUST book as quite small) and the food and service was fantastic. Very VERY good chef and front of house. Most enjoyable evening.

Cottage Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. We visit every year because the staff are so friendly and accommodating. We've stayed in a range of different rooms and they've all been lovely, clean and good value for money. The breakfast is excellent and the area is so beautiful. Would highly reccomend a break away to the New Forest at Cottage Lodge!

Tips:

Albero Italian is a lovely cosy restaurant with warm decor and fantastic food. The Oak pub in Lyndhurst is brilliant, well worth walking to, through the woods outside Brockenhurst, for a drink and lunch.

We have recently returned from a most enjoyable stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel.Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and we thought the tea and crumpets when we arrived, was a very nice touch. Our room was a good size, clean, warm and comfortable with a local selection of toiletries. The breakfasts were very good and the food was locally sourced and of good quality. There is no bar but in the Snug is an honesty box and fridge where you can buy various drinks and local jams and marmalades, AND delicious free home made cakes to have with tea in your room. As my daughter remarked " Free cakes!! my kind of hotel" Also in the Snug there are folders containing information about local walks, including maps to take, places to eat complete with menus, in fact any info you may need for an enjoyable stay. We couldn't fault the hotel and look forward to our next visit.

Tips:

The hotel is in the middle of Brockenhurst, and within walking distance of all amenities. There are 3 pubs, 2 Italian Restaurants,fish and chips, Indian and Thai restaurants and a Delicatessen and Charcuterie restaurant. As the Cottage Lodge is B&B it is generally necessary to look to these outside establishments for food . We ate at Albero,(very good), The Forester (good pub grub), Britannia Thai (nothing special), and a lunch at The Sett (good quality and helpful staff). Of course there is always Tesco's (sometimes a necessary evil). Using one of the supplied maps, we walked across the forest to The Oak Inn just outside Lyndhurst. Bit of a trek but enjoyable. You can also just stroll into the New Forest from The Cottage Lodge in about 10 minutes stopping at Rosie Leas Kitchen for lovely tea and cake and..... It's not far to travel to the various nearby towns and coastal We used the train to get to Lymington.

If ever there was a more deserving home from home, this is it. Lovely staff and cosy surroundings with sensible comforts.

Tips:

Ideal location right in the middle of the New Forest yet retains the feel of rural bliss. Easy access to interesting places beyond the Forest itself like Bournemouth, Dorset coast, Portsmouth etc. Given better weather than we had your foot access to the deep Forest is superb. Good eating places close by.

Tips:

The Foresters Arms has some of the best meals & ales, at very good prices, I’ve found in many years. Just 5 minutes’ stroll from Cottage Lodge, this is a fabulous local pub! St Nicholas Church is well worth a visit too; the oldest church in the Forest and with moving New Zealand war graves, far from home but not forgotten.

We appreciated the use of local and environmentally friendly products in the bathroom. Excellent breakfast. Nice fruit and selection of local produce. Full English vegetarian was perfectly cooked and not at all greasy.

Tips:

Good local Indian restaurant "Dynasty" serves an interesting variety of delicious vegetarian dishes. Also a lovely Italian "Albero" serves a brilliant Vegan pizza. The Royal Oak pub at Fritham is a real find. Open fires,dogs welcome and traditional (and Vegan) Ploughman's lunches are wonderful.

There are so many great things to say about Cottage Lodge Hotel that it's hard to know where to begin! All of the staff are friendly and helpful; the room was very comfortable and clean; the breakfasts were very tasty; the snug is great with free cake, a fire, DVDs and information folders. It's also great to know that the environment is being considered with eco-friendly laundered towels, organic toiletries and local produce to reduce air miles. The location of the hotel is within easy walking distance of the railway station.

Tips:

We booked a half-day trip of the New Forest with Harry Oram on his New Forest Minibus Tours. We would recommend one of his tours to get a great insight into the New Forest; his tours can be tailored to your own interests. We had an absolutely fantastic time and learned loads of new things!

We stayed at the Cottage Lodge hotel for one night. I was really impressed by the value for money offered by the hotel. It is very well situated, with walks into the forest within minutes. There are also a number of shops, including a good sized Tesco, and restaurants including a takeaway chip shop, within a few minutes walk. We stayed in the Verderers which was a lovely little twin room with a large size bathroom. The hotel provide a heater and fan in your cupboard which came in handy drying out clothes that fit damp in the rain. There was also a heated towel rail in the bathroom with lovely thick fluffy towels to dry off with. All staff we encountered during our stay were very friendly and professional. Kelly was particularly stand out with wonderful customer service. The hotel has thought about lots of little added extras which add to the experience. When we arrived our parking space was marked out with a welcome and our name. Tea, coffee and tea cakes are complimentary and available throughout your stay. The hotel also has a number of folders available in ‘The Snug’ reception area which recommend local walking and cycling routes and things in the vicinity to do and see. There are games and DVDs which you can borrow and use in your room, perfect for when the weather turns! We had a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning with mostly all locally sourced produce. Having information about the breakfast room and where items came from was also a really nice touch. I would most definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel. Fantastic value for money, great staff, perfectly situated and full of character.

Tips:

If you walk left through the village at the bottom of Sway Road you soon get a field. Walk through here and you are into a gorgeous section of woodland with lots to explore!

Tips:

If you just have a couple of days, this is the best location possible. Brockenhurst has everything, amazing walks and cycle paths, great atmosphere and is incredibly easy to access from London by public transport (we arrived by direct train from London). Take your time to explore as many paths as possible, and ejoy all the wildlife around you. We got to see horses, ponies, donkeys, llamas, pigs and deers. Just amazing.

It was so sad but we never forgot our stay at Cottage Lodge and talked about it so much. To come there again and see it all and the changes you have made was wonderful and I shall come again asap. My friend Maggi also enjoyed her stay so much. It really was wonderful to see you again. Love Ingrid

The Snakecatcher pub down the road is perfect for a homely pub meal and beside it is a fantastic wine bar called the Sett. Well worth a visit for a good quality wine and they also do food. Everywhere we went was dog friendly which was really handy.

We loved the hotel, from the friendliness of the staff who work there to the attention paid to detail throughout the hotel. Our rooms were cleaned every day and beds made. The breakfasts were of a wide verity and you could eat as much as you liked. The staff were friendly, welcoming and could not do enough for you to make your stay a success. I will be staying there next year when visiting the area again....

Tips:

There are plenty of great restaurants to choose from in the area. There is bike hire other side of the station which is a must and great fun. It is lovely to see the ponies roaming freely and the donkeys had a day out too. Tesco and Sainsbury's local are in the village amounts other shops and cafes...

Everything about the hotel is wonderful, the staff (who are all very friendly and professional), our bedroom which was very well appointed, the snug room with the honesty bar and the lovely complementary cake (which was very much appreciated after our bike rides and walks) and of course the restaurant which serves wonderful breakfasts. We couldn't find any fault at all, and highly recommend the hotel.

Owner Response:

Dear Mr & Mrs Christopher, We thank you for your feedback and we are grateful for your comments. In reference to milk, we have chosen to supply our guests with fresh milk in jugs from the snug fridge, rather than long life jiggers as we are trying to limit our single use plastic in the hotel. Which is something we feel passionately about and are pushing to remove totally. Thank you for letting us know about the shower. I have now called maintenance and it is having repair. We don't always see any worn equipment so we are grateful that our guests let us know of any issues. Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back!

A fan was on when we arrived which was welcome as it was rather hot in the room. The excellent breakfast was served by polite and efficient staff. We would definitely recommend the hotel - and would love to return.

Tips:

We had a good dinner at The Huntsman, about 10 minutes' walk away, but there are several other places to eat in the village. The forest and its charming villages is a beautiful place to explore. In the past we have visited Beaulieu, the Owl and Otter Sanctuary, and been crabbing at Mudeford. Lovely, peaceful part of the country.

The room was big enough for our travel cot and suited us well. Excellent value for money, would definitely recommend.

The White tails restaurant on the premises is well worth a try. Excellent food first class service and reasonably priced. Its not often you find all three together.

Fantastic stay at cottage lodge. Very warm and friendly welcome. Staff are amazing and couldn't help enough. Room clean and comfortable, with the added bonus of a garden area. Lovely breakfast. Great location. Would definitely stay hear again.

Tips:

There is a fantastic Italian restaurant and a charcuterie in the village, which I would highly recommend eating at both. Nice and friendly pubs. Lots of walking close by or a short drive to forest walks. The is also a huge amount of bike trails. Loads to explore. Our trip was only for a couple of days, but would have loved to stay longer.

I would come back to the Cottage Lodge Hotel in a heart beat. Set in a convenient location , and close to all that the New Forest has to offer. The staff are friendly and welcoming , I really appreciated the designated parking space with my name on it - a thoughtful detail.Our room was comfortable and cosy, simply and tastefully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast made for us on the morning, the omelette was fabulous and the jams and marmalade’s were made in the New Forest were excellent.

Tips:

We were recommended to use an App “ New Forest Walks” that showed us walks of different lengths and difficulty , It was exactly what we needed and worked effectively every time we used it, rain or shine. Lovely lovely place to stay, cannot recommend it highly enough.

Breakfast was wonderful and we also dined at White Tails restaurant one evening which was fantastic - great to have a lovely restaurant just there too. Have already recommended to people and hope to come again. Thank you

Tips:

Definitely recommend Exbury room - spacious and balcony. (Do note its at the front; We didn't experience any noise but if you're sensitive you may prefer a back room) Well worth having a meal at Whitetails

Room was spotlessly clean. We have visited several times and plan to return.

Tips:

The location is a real plus. There are several walks from the doorstep. The train station is 10 minutes walk away and we took the train to Christchurch. Next time we are planning to visit Bournemouth on the train. We used Whitetails, the online restaurant and the food was excellent.

Tips:

Plenty of choice of nearby pubs for food and drink or you can book a table at the Cottage for a 'White Tails' evening meal, we didn't but it did look good.....wherever you choose to spend the evening, it's all a few minutes walk. If you want to hire a bike to explore the wonderful bridleways, the Cyclexperience, based at the railway station are brilliant.

So friendly and super helpful staff. I can honestly say it’s one of the best little hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Food was amazing and reasonably priced. Tea and cakes on arrival was lovely. The location was perfect and easy to find. The surrounding areas are beautiful to walk and there are brilliant little pubs a stones throw away. I am booking to return with my family in the summer. Thank you cottage lodge for a fantastic stay.

Tips:

The food at cottage lodge is really worth a try, I’m fussy and found the menu had something for everyone. The gin bar just down the road was lovely ‘the thatch’ also the snake catcher pub does some lovely food and has a little garden for enjoying a few drinks and having a brilliant meal in. The walks are absolutely amazing and I was blown away by seeing the long horn cattle. I completely fell in love with them. The fouls this time of year are super small and it’s always lovely to see them living wild and free. I completely recommend visiting this beautiful part of England, you are missing out if you have never been. Fantastic holiday can’t wait to come back. The new forest has my heart

Although we only stayed for 2 nights we had a lovely stop and as a bonus we had beautiful weather too. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly and we couldn’t fault them. The breakfast (full English on both days) was freshly cooked and very tasty and the room had all the facilities we could need including the toiletries (they were lovely). The location is ideal for New Forest walks with our 2 dogs and (lucky us) we were there at the right time for seeing all the young foals who were absolutely gorgeous, in fact we watched them and other horses just across the road while we were eating our breakfast and what a sight that was!! All in all it was a great break and we would have loved to stay for longer. We will definitely return.

Tips:

Unfortunately we were not there long enough to take advantage of all the local facilities but there is horse riding and a lovely spa in the locality, also a French restaurant next door to the spa which served a lovely light lunch.

Prior to our arrival I had to call regarding. Some information and the staff who I spoke with were extremely helpful and polite. On arriving at the hotel were met by the manager who was very welcoming very informative and nothing was to much trouble. A really nice start to our stay .

Tips:

I must say that I would highly recommend the restaurant Whitetails attached to the hotel , lovely staff , great food and good value, had a lovely evening there, probably the best steak I have had for some years. I would also recommend getting some bikes out from the local hire shop cycle experience by the rail station staff are helpful and the electric bikes are a must if you want to take the strain out of sight seeing and explore the forest and local area.

Tips:

We ate in the Hotel’s own restaurant, White Sails, for a tasty and memorable birthday meal following by a lovely meal on the second night at The Huntsman, a 5 minute walk away. Apart from enjoying the beauty of the New Forest we visited Bucklers Hard, a “historic maritime village” and Lepe Country Park and Beach with lovely views across to the Isle of Wight.

The location is perfect. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone looking for the ideal place to stay in the New Forest.

Tips:

Plwnty of local pubs/restaurants in the area, but cannot beat the food at Cottage Lodge. A trip to Lymington is recommended - lovely marina and quaint shops by the keyside. Of course a ride into the New Forest is wonderful to see Horses, Donkeys and Cows in their natural environment.

Absolute gem of a hotel, so pleased we found it. Loved the little garden outside our room and the breakfast room and the breakfasts were lovely. Thanks for being properly dog friendly, we've stayed at 'dog friendly' places before and been in tiny rooms on top floors with a whole raft of don't do this, this or this instructions. Can't fault the stay.

Our room was a dog friendly room on the ground floor and was excellent. We had a small private courtyard so we could leave our room door open which gave us and our dog a lot more space. Tea and coffee provided in the rooms which was a big plus for us. All very clean. Room in the snug to eat breakfast and be able to take the dog with us. Located in the village so plenty of accessible walks. Also plenty of pubs/restaurants within walking distance.

Tips:

The hotel really does provide an incredible amount of information on the area and what walks, drives are available.. Someone has done a lot of homework to make sure you can enjoy yourselves. Pubs in village very welcoming.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel, which is managed, organised and furnished with great care and attention to detail. Everything to enhance comfort has been thought about. We can highly recommend this Hotel. Many thanks to the owner and her team.

Tips:

Cottage Lodge is ideally placed to reach the local station, shops, restaurants and pubs on foot, and start walks without having to use the car. We visited the reptile sanctuary whilst on one of our walks, but there are many other places of interest to visit. Most certainly a place to come back to.

Although we arrived early we were very warmly greeted and shown our allotted parking space, all guests are given their named parking place, which is an excellent idea. We were made to feel very welcome with tea and cake in the snug.We were then shown to our room, which was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed. The breakfast menu had a lot of choice and was very good.The staff were very friendly and efficient at all times.

Tips:

There is lots of information at the Hotel for walkers and cyclists, so no excuses for not discovering the 'Forest'. Plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from, we had a very good evening meal at The Snake Catcher. One very interesting place to visit is St. Nicholas Church where there is a lot of history about the New Zealand War Graves Memorial for soldiers from the First World War.

A fabulous hotel right in the middle of The New Forest. I cannot fault anything about this hotel, the staff, the facilities, the breakfast are always excellent. Love the fact there is always a free slice of cake available in the snug together with free tea and coffee. The staff really got out of their way to make your stay special. Always return to Cottage Lodge time and time again.

Cute little period cottage hotel. My room was small and the double bed only 48 inches wide.The shower had headroom of only 72 inches. However, I was clearly warned of these limitations and, as I was travelling alone and measure less than 6ft, they presented no problems for me - and the shower was great. In fact the room was bright, well equipped for making my morning tea and had plenty of power points. It also had a built-in wardrobe with a safe. Staff were very enthusiastic and helpful. I enjoyed my stay.

From home to home. Such lovely, friendly and helpful staff. Cosy and wonderful little cottage, a place that once you’re there, you don’t want to leave.

Tips:

Wonderful breakfast at the Cottage A coffee and a slice of cake or a nice cheese and cold meat platter at Sett and for a very good and reasonably priced dinner, do go to the Hunstman

Appreciated the small details : personal parking, crumpets, fresh milk etc. Excellent breakfast. Would have liked decaf coffee in room.

Tips:

We had excellent day at Beaulieu. Cheaper to book on line prior to visit. Mobility scooters can be prebooked.

Staff very helpful and friendly. It's a converted cottage kept in the style it was built. Steep stairs and low ceilings - It is not called a cottage for nothing to

Tips:

Plenty of pubs and eateries in and around location. Keep small children away from new forest ponies. View from car beautiful and station easy walk

I cannot believe that this hotel is rated as only 2 star due to the way ratings are issued . This establishment is of 5 star standard. Ok no large function room or bar , does have an honesty bar to serve yourself . But the quality of rooms food and service are 5 star . We feel very lucky to have found such a wonderful place to stay before our cruise . We will be returning .

Tips:

Had a fantastic meal at the Thai restaurant just short walk away . The Britannia recommended to all. Note set meal for 2 would feed 3 easy.

We love this place. Always meet very friendly and pleasant other guests. Staff are the greatest. The location is perfect as a base for the sea and the Forest. We have stayed in a number of different rooms and they all have comfortable beds and excellent facilities. I should also mention the kindness of staff and owner. In our circumstances, this is so appreciated.
