This was a really nice place to stay, clean, comfortable, good breakfast, handy parking and good facilities. But the best part is the service. The staff are some of the nicest I've ever encountered in a hotel/B&B. They can't do enough for you and go above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Would highly recommend.

Hire bikes and do the "Burley on your backside" route to see lots of interesting parts of the new forest by bike.

Very welcoming staff in a unique setting. A good breakfast to start the day and an on site restaurant which provides an excellent facility, again with the service and quality which is the hallmark of this gem in the New Forest.

Tips:

This was a return trip as the hotel provides an excellent base for exploring the area. For us it is the proximity to the rail station which has excellent connections. Brokenhurst is well set up with restaurants for a small place, as well as some friendly pubs, which also serve food.

Very cozy and clean spot to spend a couple of days in the New Forest, which is just on your door step. Good made to order breakfast, attentive staff and very clean facilitie. Very accomodating with our early check in/out. Could not recommend enough.

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.

Tips:

Public transport from Brockenhurst is very efficient; train station a five minute walk away and the bus stop is immediately outside Cottage Lodge. Christchurch is a lovely town with the small ferry across to Mudeford an added bonus. Also Lymington is well worth a visit.

All the staff were so friendly and helpful and welcoming. Last time I came was with my dear husband Alan and it was sad to remember our time there together. On our return home at that time Alan became very ill with something called Myeloma and passed away a year later. 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

Brockenhurst is a lovely village with a good choice of shops. The area is surrounded by the beautiful New Forest and not far from a choice of beaches. Our favourite being Steamer Point and Avon beach. We had a delicious meal at Albero in Brockenhurst.

The 350 year old inn was charmingly decorated in a modern yet rustic style. The staff and service was gracious and efficient. The breakfast, fresh and made to order.

Amazing friendly staff and spotlessly clean hotel! Perfect in every way.

Tips:

Brockenhurst high street is full of lovely tea shops. Rosie Lea do a delicious cream tea. 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 village is well served for pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance.

This is a little gem of a hotel we particularly liked the allocated parking place and the breakfast was high quality. My wife tried the Spanish breakfast which she thoroughly enjoyed. We would happily stay here again.

Tips:

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.

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:

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.

This is always a fantastic base to explore the New Forest. We’ve been six times now with and without children!

Tips:

Rosie Lea’s Kitchen at Setley Ridge Vineyard is a must for morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. The local pubs have good food too and Lymington also has a range of restaurants to explore as well as those child friendly chains. Hire bikes as that’s the best way to explore!

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.

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 .

I stayed at Cottage Lodge whilst on a walking the Solent Way and found the hotel location ideal for driving to the different start locations and bus routes. The staff at the Hotel were very friendly, helpful and attentive making our stay very relaxing. From the welcome note on a named parking place to the spotlessly clean hotel and facilities everything was just right! So a big thank-you and a well done to all the team at Cottage Lodge Hotel, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

Tips:

We walked from Mudeford to Bucklers Hard (Br Beaulieu) over three days staying at the Cottage Lodge for two nights. The breakfasts were first class and the free cake slices in the ‘Snug’ was nice to have on our return, topping up with a tea or coffee with fresh milk also provided. Oh happy memories

We have stayed in many hotels in the UK and around the world. Cottage Lodge, though small, has the most welcoming and accommodating staff we have ever met. From the complementary tea and cakes throughout our stay, to allowing us to bring in take away meals and our own alcohol- and even providing us with crockery,cutlery and glasses! The rooms were pretty and comfortable. And the hotel is ideally located for a short walk to the host of independent shops, pubs and restaurants. They provide copious information about walks and other tourist destinations. We cannot recommend them highly enough. We plan to go back!!

Tips:

There are several restaurants, pubs, tea shops, and independent shops just a few minutes walk away. And a couple of easy pathways with lovely scenery will take you into the forest itself. The horses and donkeys are just so entertaining and interesting, casually bringing traffic to a halt as they amble through the streets!

The bathroom was lovely and clean, the whole room was a good size. The balcony was nice too. It was funny seeing the donkeys and horses grazing on the green opposite. Good location as you were close to a lot of things to do. Also having cake available whenever you wanted a little slice was a great touch to our stay too.

We visited enzee Italian restaurant, which was lovely food and great service. I would recommend this restaurant. The walk we did was great, I can’t remember the name of it but we found it it one of the folders you provided to look through, there was a bridge and stream part though!

This was our third stay and again, we thoroughly enjoyed it! To begin with, it's so nice to have a parking space allocated, making arrival and unloading so easy! Then, guests are always welcomed with a pot of tea and a little slice of cake - such a nice start! Breakfasts are lovely in the bright comfortable breakfast room and from our experience, all of the rooms are beautifully maintained and furnished. Finally, all of the staff (most of whom have been around for some time) are really friendly, helpful and make staying at Cottage Lodge a real pleasure!

Tips:

The Cottage Lodge restaurant is well worth a visit for an evening meal, as is Britannia Thai for anyone who enjoys Thai food. We can thoroughly recommend the walk from the village over Butts Lawn to Ober Water (approx 5 miles - details in the hotel folder) and also the walk from Beaulieu to Buckler's Hard and back.

Friendly relaxed hotel with nice touches such as the honesty box for the mini bar and lots of information folders.

Tips:

We liked The Pig restaurant, a little pricey but lovely. Lots of lovely walks in the area and nearby Beaulieu is an attractive village to potter around.

We would advise making time to go on many of the walks as they are quite incredible. Visits to Lyndhurst, Milford, Salisbury and Stonehenge are worth a drive too

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Nothing is too much trouble and the hospitality is exemplary. You can have tea/coffee and cake throughout the day, which is unheard of in bigger hotels. The room was spacious but kept its cottage 'feel'. The breakfast was also very good, being cooked to order. I will definitely go again!

Tips:

At least three pubs within walking distance and just along the road from Brockenhurst itself. Plenty of walks nearby too.

A lovely warm welcome by Christina with a pot of tea and a piece of cake. The rooms are well laid out, there is everything you could need. The beds are really comfy and the bedding crisp, white and super fresh smelling. The honesty bar is a lovely touch. I thoroughly recommend the eggs Benedict for breakfast and the coffee is excellent too. All in all a brilliant find for a wonderful stay. Thank you.

Tips:

At weekends the restaurant in the hotel becomes Whitetails and the food is amazing. Good wine too. If you want to eat somewhere else The Sett is really lovely. They serve platters of cheese, charcuterie and bread along with an impressive collection of gins.

Excellent service. This place is lovely. The staff terrific & everything kept very clean. Lovely bedrooms & decor. Whilst only rated as a 3 star hotel it should be far higher, hampered most probably by rating systems - bathroom didn’t have separate modern shower & could be updated but everything was so tidy & spotless. We would definitely go back. Great value for money & recommend.

Tips:

The restaurant inside the hotel is run separately & is great. Loved the food, nice atmosphere & all very well run. We walked, miles & enjoyed the surrounding villages, walking through the woods with the ponies is magical. Boots required though!

Would definitely recommend staying here, hosts are so friendly and helpful. Great location and within walking distance of shops - restaurants - pubs and a garage just to the side of the cottage, great breakfast in the morning and love the range of choice. Free cake at anytime you like and a welcoming cup of tea when you arrive , lots of brochures for restaurants and walks driving walks folders. Cosy rooms they have shampoos body wash etc would definitely stay here again and even bring my parents. Had a amazing stay - thank you so much

Lovely hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. We were welcomed by tea and cake in the snug with a open fire. Our room was called Rhinefield which was up some narrow stairs but luggage was carried for us and wouldn’t be put off by this as it adds to the charm of the place.

Tips:

Ask in advance if you would like an early check in as we did and were able to check in at 12.30pm. Also don’t be put off by the narrow stairs, just enquire before booking for a more accessible room ask the charm of the hotel makes up for it.

Really friendly and helpful staff, made our trip with our one year old so much easier. Our room (Gillies Holt) was really nice, clean and comfortable. Really good location for a family trip to the New Forest.

Tips:

We did Cyclexperience (ornamental route) which was ideal for a family with plenty to see and pubs on the way. The New Forest wildlife park was also really enjoyable, although half the animals were asleep!
