The room we stayed in Forestiers was a great size with a lovely shower room. The breakfast was totally delicious with care going into locally sourced ingredients. Choosing some elements the evening before prevented waste. A comprehensive full breakfast menu available in the morning. Named parking spaces that were a good size prevented parking wrangles.

Tips:

White Tails restaurant operating out of cottage lodge hotel is a treat. Food and wine are excellent as is Ramsey who seemed to be maitre d and waiter. Recommend day trip to Boscombe Marina if you like a 1950’s seaside feel plus a visit to Hengistbury which is an amazing nature reserve and ancient archeological site.

what a lovely place to stay , staff are all very lovely , they make you feel at home and are so friendly. Rooms are good size , very clean and comfortable. in general the whole hotel is wonderful.Breakfast is fabulous , , huge choice of anything you may want to have and well cooked. good location close to many places. We ate in the restaurant “whitetails” which was excellent. just one small comment is that they put black pepper on everything so if you are like me who doesn’t like pepper then please say so when they take your order. I mentioned it when they asked us how was everything so i explained I didn’t like pepper , they offered to cook me a fresh meal but I was quite happy taking the pepper of the food . However the sea bass was wonderful and the desert was sublime. I would highly recommend this hotel & the restaurant.

Fantastic stay!! Small touches make such a difference e.g. named car parking space on arrival, greeted with Tea and cake, simple breakfast selection process, these things and more show an attention to detail! Great location with easy access to everthing you need;shops, pubs, restuarants, train station, walks, cycle hire etc etc! Would definitley stay again!

Tips:

Lots of great walks obviously. We used the All Trails app but there are lots of others out there. Circular walk to Lyndhurst was great. Cycle ride to Beaulieu also fab. Ate at the Foresters and Thai, both very nice. Short train ride takes you into Lymington which is good for a visit and change of scenary.

Lovely welcome by Ray who showed us to the snug for tea and cake. Very friendly staff who welcomed not only us but our dog as well. Breakfast was well organised and tasty and our pooch said thank you for the sausage! Dog friendly room with a small enclosed patio was ideal for leaving the door open. Lovely area to stay with lots of exciting (if not a little damp at the mo!) walkies. Thank you

Tips:

Hengistbury head is a lovely dog friendly beach about 25 mins away with cafes both ends. The snakecatcher in the village was a good place for dinner.

It’s always a pleasure staying at this wonderful cottage (coaching Inn) The accommodation is very comfortable and extremely clean. The breakfast is amazingly good.

We have been back time and time again to this wonderful village surrounded by the beautiful new Forrest in all its glory, during any season, and we will continue to do so.

We were celebrating our 20th anniversary on 26 March and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. The room was perfect and we even managed to sit out on the balcony to catch a bit of sunshine before the rain came. Our two nights stay were excellent as noted above. Wish we could have stayed longer with you, maybe next time! :)

Tips:

We experienced eating out at the Britannia Thai restaurant and The Snakecatcher. In our opinion, If you like Thai food as we do then the Britannia Thai is a good place to go. The Snakecatcher food was also a good place to have some wholesome pub food. Only regret is we forgot to use the discounts you kindly provided.

This is a very welcoming and comfortable hotel set in the middle of the New Forest. It makes am excellent base for exploring the area and the hosts are very helpful in recommending places to go and see.

Tips:

Leave your car at home. To get to the hotel and to explore further afield, the hotel is within a few minutes walk of the mainline station at Brocklehurst and there are local bus services. There are many easily accessible trails for walking and cycle hire is available to explore the network of trails. There are many good pubs and eateries in the area, so take a healthy appetite with you.

This was our third stay with you and will not be the last. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The village is charming and easily reached by train, so we never take the car, though each guest is allocated a parking space. The breakfasts are substantial and served fresh - no buffets here. We thoroughly recommend them.

Tips:

By the station is Enzee, an Italian restaurant. Fantastic food and service. No 6 bus opposite the hotel takes you to Lymington, a charming country town, full of pretty shops and The Ship Inn down by the marina for a nice lunch or just a beer. Frequent trains from Waterloo, and local ones to Bournemouth among other interesting places.

A good start to any day is very important. The breakfast was beautifully prepared and very tasty; one of the best we have had. The owner and his staff were very friendly. I hope we are able to visit again soon.

A really nice greeting on our first visit to the New Forest. Our room was nice and the bed was really comfortable. Breakfast was tremendous, fresh and tasty and we liked the fact that everything was locally sourced.

Tips:

The weather wasn't good, but we still managed to have a great time. Beaulieu was a fantastic day out, the Abbey, the house, gardens and the motor museum are brilliant. The Italian in Brockenhurst was great and we highly recommend The Pig (although its an expensive night). We will be going back to the New Forest soon.

We loved our stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel. The staff were so friendly and the check in, whilst we sat down with a cup of tea and slice of cake, was the most comprehensive and informative we've ever had. Downstairs, the hotel is very cosy and 'cottagey' (for want of a better word) but our room, the Rhinefield, was light and bright with a magnificent hand-crafted four poster bed. Breakfast was marvellous too.

Tips:

We ate at Dynasty where we had a delicious curry. Caught the train from Brockenhurst station to Christchurch where we visited the priory and quays. Lovely walk to Forest Park Hotel for a drink and saw lots of ponies along the way.

Tips:

Location is just along from the High street with shops and cafes. The other way towards the station, it's a short flat walk to pubs and restaurants. There's a vineyard with farm shop and cafe within 5 minute drive and a tap brewery a minute further on from that. Walks are plentiful and there's plenty of water for the dog to play in - at least when we were there!

We dined in the restaurant one evening, which was very good, and the breakfast were one of the best we’d ever had - beautifully cooked, fresh and tasty local produce, and a great selection. We hope to return one day!

Tips:

The hotel runs an honesty bar for drinks, which are much cheaper than the local pub! (£6.50 for a mini Prosecco, as opposed to £9.95 in the Snakecatcher up the road). The Albero Italian restaurant is very good too, and we recommend the Brockenhurst circular walk, straight out from the hotel (about 5 miles), which we really enjoyed.

We had a brilliant stay. All of the team were lovely and we felt very welcomed and relaxed. Room was lovely and private without feeling isolated/miles from the action. Thank you so much!

Tips:

Brockenhurst is a lovely small town, everything is walking distance. The White Tails restaurant is fab for a dinner onsite and there are plenty of walking/biking trails.

We enjoyed the most fantastic and welcoming stay at cottage lodge , everyone was so caring, from the moment we checked with tea and cake , Ray was really helpful with check in and local information Our room was impeccably clean and fresh , with a very comfortable bed , We are seasoned travellers and can confirm this hotel has outstanding service, absolutely faultless, well done guys

Tips:

Absolutely perfect in every way, Maybe a vanity mirror above the dressing table in gillie holt , Just a possible consideration We really cannot emphasise how perfect this stunning hotel is run , the team are experienced and strive for client satisfaction at every opportunity, The Prosecco is a fantastic idea too

As commented upon in my subsequent TripAdvisor Review, we very much enjoyed our stay. The property is very comfortable and well located - particularly for us as we made good use of the local rail service. It is also very well managed and the whole team made us most welcome from the beginning to the end of our stay. The Breakfasts are excellent - just be careful not to over order!

Tips:

All the 16 room are different so pick your room accordingly. We much enjoyed our Dinners at the ‘in-house’ White Taiks Restaurant and would encourage other guests to do so. Brockenhurst is an excellent base from which to see the New Forest and the local wildlife - donkeys being my personal favourite and these pass the Hotel daily.

From the moment we walked through the front door we were made to feel at home. The smile from the owner and all the staff was lovely. The cooked breakfast was the best I have tasted and so much was on offer with fruit juice, melon & grapes , cereals, porridge toast, smoked salmon the list was endless and real quality. We will definitely be returning next year. We really recommend this Boutique hotel as a must to stay if you need accommodation near the New Forest. Thank you for a lovely break Sally & Laurence.

Tips:

We visited Beaulieu for the day and highly recommend a visit. The Snake Catcher pub In Brockenhurst was warm and friendly with good homemade food. We had Sunday lunch in the Huntsman pub that was more like a restaurant and had an excellent Sunday roast.

Jackie is a real asset to the hotel, super friendly and helpful, as was the waitress at breakfast. Little Alice - very comfortable bed and well appointed room, the only thing missing was a chair. Although no space for one in that room, a small stool tucked away in the corner or the cupboard would be useful for putting shoes on. Shower had a very feeble jet. Cooked breakfast excellent. Weetabix might be a nice additional option to offer to start as porridge very filling before cooked breakfast and muesli/granola were not an option for someone allergic to honey. Disappointing meal in the restaurant on the Wednesday evening. My husband was told off by the waiter as we were ten minutes late down, the goats cheese on my starter was blow torched on the top but totally cold underneath - I would expect it to be either warm or cold but not a mix of the two. Both my husband and my lamb shanks were tough. My husband ate his but didn’t enjoy it. Mine wouldn’t even come away from the bone. The waiter did change it for a steak, but this made it feel like a meal of two halves - a restaurant wouldn’t normally charge when this happens. We eat out regularly at nice restaurants where we live and, although the prices were on a par, the quality of the food was not. Although we would stay in the hotel again, we would eat elsewhere after that experience.

Our 2nd visit to Cottage Lodge Hotel, this time with friends, and again it didn’t disappoint. A professionally run hotel but in such a friendly and relaxed manner. Jackie checked us in and welcomed us with tea and cakes. She remains as friendly and chatty as ever, even remembered us from a year ago. Our rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean, as were all areas of the hotel. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, everything cooked to order. One tiny niggle - it would have been nice to have the log burner lit in the little snug, just to make it a little ‘snugger’ when we returned from our wet walk. Otherwise, just perfect! We hope to return. Thank you.

Tips:

Beautiful walking country, we walked to Lymington and got the train back. We had an excellent meal in the Italian restaurant Albero, good atmosphere and friendly staff. White Tails restaurant located within Cottage Lodge cannot be faulted. A good menu and wine list, food cooked perfectly and was delicious. All served by the owner, Ramsey.

A good location for accessing the New Forest. This is an old property so rooms are smaller than average. We were given an upgrade on arrival and stayed in the Foresters room with en-suite shower. Pillows were quite firm but the bed was comfy enough. Good choice for breakfast in the morning. Staff were really lovely.

Tips:

We ate at the le Blaireau, as this had good reviews. Quite a limited menu, and the female waitress was miserable and hardly spoke. The rest of the waiters were great. Food was over rated, in our opinion and definitely not worth what we paid. We also ate at some of the local pubs. The food was far superior and atmosphere much better.

Jackie welcomed us to the hotel and explained how things are organised especially the breakfast and how the key fob opens the front door if locked later in the evening. All the staff we met were extremely pleasant. The waiters served breakfast so easily. If something was missing from the pre ordered cereals and fruit course it appeared very quickly.

Tips:

We couldn’t have dinner at the hotel on a Monday so ate at the Enzee Italian restaurant. It was amazing and only a five to ten minute walk away from the hotel. We booked for our second night at the Enzee so can’t comment on dinner at the hotel. Other guests told us it had excellent reviews so well worth a try. The train station is opposite the Enzee. We took the 12 minute ride to Lymington Pier where a car or foot passengers ferry crosses the Solent to the Isle of Wight. We were tempted to do a day trip but decided to leave that adventure for another time. There are some good walks from Brockenhurst and Lymington Pier. Nothing too difficult and can be as long or short to suit walkers.

The Cottage Lodge Hotel epitomizes the definition of hospitality. From arranging an early check in to organising a taxi and even sourcing a belt so our day at a friend's wedding would not be ruined by a silly mistake! Thank you for a lovely stay in your lovely "home!" PS the breakfast was awesome too!

We had a lovely stay with you and will definitely return. The beds were very comfortable, nice bed linen. Plenty of hot water, big shower in our room (William). Breakfast choices are extensive and definitely something for everyone.

Tips:

We visited Bucklers Hard, the river cruise was nice. We wouldn’t recommend the Riverview Restaurant. The Hare and Hounds at Sway offers great food. The fish cakes were lovely. If you have a big appetite the pulled pork burger was also great.

Cottage Lodge Hotel is superbly situated in Brockenhurst. We were particularly impressed by the attention to detail in place for visitors, named parking slots and organic sundry items in the room for example. Jackie, who was at reception when we arrived, was incredibly friendly and helpful. The stay was superb and we will be returning (from Germany) soon.

Tips:

We only stayed one night in Brockenhurst. We ate at the Pig. It is one of the best restaurants we have ever visited. Every visit to Brockenhurst should include a visit to the Pig

Excellent location, close to shops and pubs/restaurants, Staff are all wonderful, really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Room was really clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space for your clothes and even a plug in heater for cooler evenings and a fan for the warmer ones. Allocated parking space was an added bonus.

Tips:

Cottage Lodge Hotel is situated in the heart of Brockenhurst, just a short walk from shops, pubs, restaurants and the railway station. There is a great choice of places the eat out and a selection of independent shops too. We recommend the open top bus tour which you can join at the railway station and hop on/ hop off at various places along the route and interlink with the other tours too. Lymington is just a short train ride away and there are many areas you park up and just take a walk in the forest to see the ponies and other animals.

The Cottage Lodge Hotel has some unique design features, e.g. furniture made from local trees, and most of the products used in the hotel come from the New Forest. It was exactly the type of place you'd hope to stay in when you visit the New Forest: elegant in its simplicity. Maurizio, the owner, is very friendly, and gave us great tips for the area.

We hebben genoten van de ontspannen sfeer in het hotel. De locatie is geweldig. Elke ochtend een heerlijk ontbijt aan tafel geserveerd. Wij hebben 3 nachten in kamer Little Alice verbleven en 4 nachten in kamer Burley(met patio) Maurizio en team hebben ons een heerlijke vakantieweek bezorgd. Zeer gastvrij.

Tips:

De ligging van het hotel is ideaal. Vlakbij het trein/busstation. Voor 39 pond per persoon kan je de hele week met de bus reizen naar alle mooie dorpjes. Hop on hop off. Gezellige winkeltjes, pubs op loopafstand. Wandelen in de Forest of naar het strand is beide mogelijk. Diverse keren naar de Snakecatcher geweest voor fish&chips en de heerlijke ciders. Golfen in Burley ook zeker een aanrader. Prachtige bosbaan met zeer vriendelijk personeel.

Hotel and rooms are immaculate,The hotel owners and staff are all lovely people,and will all go out of their way to ensure you have a most enjoyable stay. Breakfast is lovely, and plenty to choose from. Highly recommend.

Tips:

Hotel is ideally situated with only a 5 minute walk into the village and all amenities. Lovely tea rooms, restaurants, and pubs all within walking distance. The train station is a 10 minute walk away which makes it ideal for visiting surrounding areas. Beaulieu motor museum, and Bucklers Hard are a very short drive away, and well worth a visit. All in all a fabulous place to stay.

The staff are some of the friendliest and helpful we have ever com across in an hotel environment. They cannot do enough to help if required and always on hand if there is every any minor issues. The hints and tips about local walks and use of New Forest app was extremely helpful as whilst we are frequent visors over the years we found yet more walks to undertake. Thank you for a another lovely stay.

Tips:

Download the New Forest walking app its very useful. Book a meal at the Whitetails (part of the hotel but run independently) few weeks before you stay as they get very busy and cater to a set number of covers each night (except Sundays) and can accommodate dogs in the snug. Ramsey Hammad and his team are wonderful and food is fantastic so worth a visit.

Our 1st visit since 2017, due to expanding family, and we found Cottage Lodge as magical as ever and a wonderful base from which to enjoy the various delights of the New Forest. My 8 year old son also loved Brockenhurst on account of all the horses wandering about everywhere. The organisation e.g. for breakfast is also done so well.

Tips:

There are plenty of things to see and do when staying at Brockenhurst. During our 2 night stay, myself and my 8 year old son were made incredibly welcome at the walkable “Huntsman” pub for our evening meal… it has great food, great beer and great choices for children too, plus a well designed and spacious garden. The staff were also very helpful and friendly, bar one lady who was a bit obstructive when we arrived and asked for a garden table again for our second visit, but she was thankfully put in her place by senior staff who were, once again, charming, so we had two great nights there.

Eat in the restaurant. Do the bus trips round the New Forest. Good value if you do all 3 circuits.

The only niggle was the location of the room to the kitchen, because it was quite humid understandably they had the door open but that made it quite noisy for us as was the white water pipe right outside the window. However on the positive side, extremely friendly staff, little touches like a warm welcome and named parking is lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend.

Staff at the Cottage Lodge were fantastic. They were hospitable and informed about things to do in or near Brockenhurst. The cleanliness of the hotel was on a good level. The breakfast included was tasty. The dinner at the restaurant is good to be booked in advance, but they also may have a table available on the spot. The food was good , I really enjoyed crispy fried waitbait. It was delicious.

Tips:

Good train connection to London, also bus connections to other nearby towns ( Lymington, Lyndhurst, Beaulieu, Hythe...) Walks are well signed and organized. The signal in the forest is off, which is great, just have a map ready. There are plenty of activities...Archery, Cayaking... There's a spa centre 10 min away, for relaxing moments. The food was good.

A lovely hotel in a good location. A good base to explore the new forest. Perfect hosts. Very welcoming and friendly. All the staff are lovely and we have had excellent service. Our room was big. Extremely comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Wonderful breakfast. Would definitely return. Highly recommended.

Tips:

The hotel has a restaurant for the evening s. The village has a few pubs that serve food and an Italian restaurant. The Filly just outside the village has good food. Also the Huntsman is very good. There is also a train station. Lymington is easily reached by a short drive to catch the Isle.of Wight ferry. Perfect base.

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful this was all topped up with a wonderful breakfast.I would really recommend the Cottage Lodge Hotel.

Tips:

The hotel is perfectly situated for seeing round the New Forest and if like us you don’t take a car or want to drive around the buses for the New Forest tour stop right outside the hotel.

Staff were welcoming, my room was distinctively furnished and comfortable. Interesting choices for breakfasts. I'd suggest the hotel's "eco-chic" credentials would be boosted by offering a discount or similar bonus to guests (like myself) arriving by public transport.

Tips:

I'd recommend the Tall Trees trail as a walk in the New Forest near to Brockenhurst.

This is an absolutely lovely place to stay, eveything about it is lovely, especially it's location - the service is really welcoming and friendly. You really accommodated us with our dog, and the food and service was great. The restaurant was a bonus- the food and service were second to none. Like many, once you have been to Cottage Lodge you will always go back, thank you for a lovely stay.

Tips:

White Tails restaurant (within the hotel) is wonderful and there are lovely walks in and around this lovely thriving village. The coastal walks around Milford on Sea are wonderful and Lymington is a lively town with a quay and really lovely coffee shops.

We found Cottage Lodge to be a most comfortable place to stay. Our spacious room had everything we needed, with two chairs to sit on, a fridge, safe, comfortable bed and a great walk in shower Breakfasts were plentiful - the Spanish tomato breakfast just delish. Brockenhurst has lots of local eateries, easy access to the New Forest and walks therein, train facilities and a lovely village to boot and doesn’t have the crowds. Perfect.

Tips:

Drive along the Rheinfield road and walk in the redwood forest. Forest Park Hotel has lovely meals. The garden out the back is lovely for a relaxing drink on the way home from exploring the area. Take a trip down to the Isle of Wight - easy to get to by train and ferry.

Such a lovely accommodating place to stay. Upon arrival I loved that they knew who I was without me having to say. They gave me and husband a lovely cup of tea and slice of cake. Bed and room very comfy and spacious. We stayed in a room with a balcony and it was so peaceful to sit out and enjoy a drink. Breakfast was top notch and the service again was fantastic all staff very happy and bright. Will definitely be coming again.

Tips:

Loved the Thai in the village, especially the duck spring rolls they were delicious. Also went for a gin (husband) and cream tea (me) at Escape Gin Bar. Great service. And cream tea delicious too.

Always a very warm welcome and can feel relaxed when arriving with a welcoming fresh brew and piece of cake. Breakfast is good to and get a propper sized pot of tea. Must say we prefer streaky bacon if anything to make it 101% Would continue to return again and again if going that direction. Very easy to get around the new forest as location is so good.
