Lovely newly re-decorated accommodation, nice to arrive to an allotted parking space with name displayed. Accommodated our early arrival with no problem. Staff very friendly and delicious freshly cooked breakfast. Sadly we weren't able to try the restaurant as it is closed Sunday & Monday evenings, but if s good as breakfast & cream tea it would be good. Would definitely stay again

Tips:

Plenty of restaurants and pubs serving pub food in walking distance. Nice walks locally and information in the 'lounge' area at the hotel, staff willing to advise too

This is our third stay at this hotel and the first with the new owners. We’re pleased to say it’s just as brilliant! We came at a strange time with the current events, but the staff made us feel very welcome and were as hospitable as ever, doing all they could to make our stay so lovely. We will return!

Tips:

The Snakecatcher and The Huntsman pubs both serve superb food, and The Sett cafe does great coffee.

Everyone from our booking to our leaving were very attentive and helpful. The room ( Brushed Mills) was quirky but very comfortable and quiet. We ate twice in in White Tails and had two excellent meals. Having eaten in high level restaraunts in many places in Uk and round the world this menu and food is worthy of 5 star rating. Manager Ramsey and cheff Matthew deserve great credit. Thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay

Tips:

We ate one night in The Pig restaurant because White tails was fully booked, and had a lovely meal. but settled on White Tails for two nights. Recommend booking White Tails before arrival.

Lovely hotel with friendly and professional staff. Breakfast was excellent on both mornings-first time I tried rhubarb jam and it was lovely (unfortunately ran out of jars for sale). The salmon and scrambled eggs were the best I have ever had for breakfast!Nice selection of local artist "Bobby" paintings and prints. After leaving we went back to buy one that my wife wanted. Would have loved to try the onsite restaurant but they close on the days we were there. Our first visit to the New Forest, thank you to all at Cottage Lodge.

Tips:

We went to Albero Italian restaurant the first night, pasta, pizza and wine all delicious and reasonably priced, also with friendly staff. Notice the y make their pizza dough daily using Italian flour, also make past fresh daily. Lovely to watch the chef twirling the pasta.

Historic, traditional and very quaint hotel. Very comfortable room. Extensive and excellent breakfast. Also, excellent quality restaurant. Very close to the centre of the Village. Reserved parking space, thus always available when you get back from going out. Enjoyed every minute.

Tips:

Good location for travelling around the New Forest and surrounding area. Good local restaurants, if you fancy a change from the hotel restaurant. Tesco supermarket on your doorstep together with a few local shops all in easy walking distance.

A great little hotel right in the middle of the New Forest at Brockenhurst which is not too busy but has everything you need inc shops pubs and restaurants, as well as walks from the hotel without having to drive. Every room is different so choose if you can! Free tea and cakes and all local produce for breakfast and delightful little snug with roaring fire, games and an honesty bar, again local produce. Happy smiling staff help to meet any needs and in the summer several rooms have a little garden which would be lovely for sitting in. Very reasonable too.

Tips:

Thai restaurant excellent, very reasonable price and quick service. Snakecatcher pub very nice if not so reasonable.

Very friendly and intimate hotel. You are made to feel special as soon as you arrive with your own personalised parking space. You are then provided with arrival refreshments which went down a treat crumpets with homemade preserves, tea and prosecco. All in all the whole stay was excellent and I would highly recommend.

Tips:

Situated in the village nowhere is more than a 10 minute stroll. Plenty of places to eat drink from pubs and a wine bar to tea rooms, restaurants (if you are unlucky enough not to be able to book into the restaurant on site which we were)including Italian and Indian.

The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was one of the best we have ever had. Very tasty with lots of choice. A unique touch was our names displayed in our own parking place when we arrived. The restaurant which is a separate concern was a great asset to the hotel. We had a delicious meal there and would rate it ten out of ten.

Tips:

Would recommend the White Tails restaurant attached to the hotel also the Huntsman was a good place to eat. The Sett was a good place for a drink. We also saw someone have a platter of meats, olives etc which looked lovely. Would recommend visiting Lymington which you could catch a train to. There are lovely walks from the hotel.

A charming hotel full of character which supports local craftsmanship, artists, produce and farmers. Welcoming friendly staff. The furniture is fashioned by a local craft carpenter out of trees from the new forest. Some delightful artwork is available to purchase as a reminder of your stay in the forest. Delicious breakfast served in a bright and sunny dining room. Dinner is available in the dining room but run as a separate enterprise. Delicious locally sourced meals beautifully presented.

We arrived late so having the late arrival pack clearly displayed at the entrance was very helpful. We were initially confused by reception as there is no physical reception, so might be good to prewarn travellers of that. The room was lovely and spacious and airy and service at breakfast was great. Valentines treats were a sweet touch although we couldn't eat the rocky road as we're veggies and it had marshmallows in. The only small issue with the room is that you can't get to the toiletries whilst in the bath.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottage Lodge, Kelly and Agnes were very warm and welcoming and could not do enough for us and our small dog to make sure we were comfortable. We stayed during storm Dennis and could not have chosen a cosier venue with the small snug to get warm by the fire and our comfortable room. Breakfast was delicious with an excellent choice of options.

Tips:

The hotel is situated in the centre of Brockenhurst set back from quite a busy road. We found it very convenient for walking out and around the villages and visiting the local pubs and cafes. Due to the weather we did not get to walk in the forest as much as we planned, although did enjoy a very wet walk around Tall Trees and the Arboretum at Blackwater.

Friendly and quietly efficient. We much appreciated access to the 'honesty' bar in the snug and I'm afraid the free cake dish did not assist our waist lines.

Tips:

Bearing in mind this hotel has no regular bar it is important to note that several pubs are within easy walking distance. Further to this, unless you wish to book at the franchised White Tails within the hotel, there is a reasonable choice of assorted restaurants, again within walking distance.

A lovely stay in a wonderful hotel. Attention was paid to every little detail, making for a special experience. From arriving and seeing our designated parking space, to check out, our stay was very welcoming. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We loved the fresh cake, games and honesty bar - all such lovely touches. Breakfast was very good and it was nice to have the option to eat in the snug with our dog. The location is very convenient for local shops and restaurants. Our only complaint is that we needed more time to enjoy the forest. We look forward to staying again in the future.

Courteous and helpful management & staff - much appreciated. Accommodation warm, spacious and comfortable; dining facilities appropriately "cottage" in style. Menu appealing, breakfasts particularly satisfying. Car parking facilities good - especially the reserved parking places, labelled ready for individual guests' arrival. Strongly recommended.

Tips:

Plenty of good local restaurants (some within 5 minutes walking distance) if 'eating out' preferred - useful on Mondays evenings, when the Cottage Lodge restaurant is closed. Hotel is ideally located as a base from which to visit the many (and varied) local attractions; Brockenhurst village shops a short walk away.

Cottage Lodge gives a warm and friendly welcome as soon as you arrive and then everything gets better! Lovely quirky rooms with all facilities (our Busher Mills room was magical!), a wonderful easy relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous food sourced locally and exceptional service in all areas - nothing is too much trouble! and the 'staff' are more like friends inviting you into their home. The location is great because it's right in the middle of the New Forest with easy access to lots of interesting places. A beautiful little hotel and such good value too!

Tips:

There's so much to do and see in the area and Cottage Lodge provides lots of information and advice on the best places - also they have much more specific local knowledge to pass on if you ask. New owners Francesca & Maurizio have a wealth of experience in the hotel business so I'm sure things will only get better and we'll certainly be returning on our next visit to the New Forest.

Ideal base for exploring the New Forest with a warm and friendly welcome from the host. Checking-in treat of delicious coffee and lemon drizzle plus an allocated parking space at the front of hotel added to the experience. We stayed two nights in The Verderers room overlooking a rear courtyard. Soundproofing from other rooms isn't great, but its an old building, full of character and local history. Watch out for the low ceilings too, if you're tall like us! Initial issue of radiator not working, which was promptly resolved with a plug-in storage heater. On the first night we dined in The Whitetails Restaurant which adjoins the hotel but is actually run separately. Excellent food and service. Good variety of options on the breakfast menu. Lots of local information, maps, walking routes etc in the room plus the lady host is happy to chat about local places of interest. All in all a very comfortable short stay in a great location.

Very relaxed vibe, named parking spaces were a lovely touch. Although we didn't spend much time in the Snug as the weather was very kind to us, it was a really welcoming space and the cake and fresh milk were much appreciated. We loved the natural feel to the room and the public spaces, the building feels in tune with the forest. All the Breakfast options we tried were delicious, I particularly enjoyed the Berry Compote and Granola on the buffet. All the staff we met were friendly and welcoming.

Tips:

The Monkey House in Lymington was a fun food venue, convenient for an IOW ferry drop off. We also had a lovely Italian meal at Albero's and our son had his first Thai meal at Britannia Thai restaurant in Brockenhusrt both only a few minutes walk from the Hotel. We enjoyed a fabulous 6 mile walk from Lepe country park culminating in watching the sunset from The Lookout with a great slice of cake!

Tea and cake on arrival were very welcome after my drive there, and having a parking space with my name on was a nice personal touch. Staff were very friendly and informative. The honesty bar is a great idea for a small hotel, and being able to have fresh milk for tea in the room was so good. White Tails restaurant within the hotel was also very good quality food. The only thing I didn't like was the 24 hr lighting at the front of the hotel, way too bright for such a rural location.

Tips:

Take a walk around the village, it was a bit muddy for my visit but lovely all the same. I also went to Buckler's Hard for a visit and it was very interesting.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel and will definitely be visiting again soon. 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.

Gave a 4 ref facilities because the shower was a bit weak and there was no long life milk in the room with the tea/coffee making provision. But we loved the snug bar and the warm welcome we received upon arrival. I'm just being very picky! Everything else got a 5. The hotel is beautiful and we loved the dedicated car parking space! Thoroughly recommend. Only stayed one night, visiting friend locally.

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!

On arrival we were greeted with coffee and a friendly welcome. Our room was spacious yet cosy, and well equipped. The bed was so comfortable! 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.

Not many places in Brockenhurst accept children under 6 years old and as the cottage lodge accepts all ages we booked and took out 6 month old baby. The room was big enough for our travel cot and suited us well. Excellent value for money, would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed our stay, as before, with lovely staff, a beautiful and unique room, and delicious breakfast. This time, we tried the Whitetails restaurant as well and enjoyed that immensely. Kelly gave us some nice tips on how to get to the Rheinfield Ornamental Drive walk and use the app. Very helpful and friendly team. We'll be back!

Tips:

Definitely explore the Rheinfield Ornamental Drive walk among the redwoods and the arboretum. Easy walk but very lovely!

Loved our short stay at the Cottage Lodge Hotel. It is very well organised from the parking to the breakfast. Cannot fault in any way.

Tips:

We didn't get to try the White Tails restaurant but there are a few nice pubs and restaurants just about 5 minute walk away, we particularly enjoyed the Thai restaurant'

The staff, location and service were excellent. This is a little hidden gem of a hotel. I definitely wasn't disappointed in any way. We will be back.

Tips:

Brockenhurstis a lovely village in the heart of the New Forest. Its a perfect base just to hire a bike and explore the area. I can highly recommend The Sett and Brittania Thai as places to eat.

A very relaxing place to stay with efficient staff and loads of local information.

Tips:

We do not drive but this was no problem as buses into the New Forest left from a stop 5 minutes walk away. We would recommend dining at the hotel restaurant and also the Snakecatchers pub nearby. The owners also run an Italian restaurant which proved a bit different from the norm.

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.

A little gem of a place. Small, intimate and welcoming. Jolly good breakfast and evening meals available (also we didn't manage this). We really appreciated the 'dogs' welcome and the three available rooms were excellent.

Tips:

Two good pubs close by - only 10 minutes walk. Access to the New Forest just a short walk away. Also a rail link in the village.
