The Lunch meal was excellent, good food served on hot plates, so important in cold weather. The food all pre- ordered arrived on time, the attention to detail was outstanding. Dining here was a real pleasure.Brian B - 2016
A lovely pet friendly family run hotel in a good location for visiting the forest. Lovely rooms and excellent food...Chequeredjustice- Dec 2016
We spent our Christmas break here and liked it very much, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the food was good and they do a lovely breakfast, we had a family suite which was quite spacious but unfortunately on the first night someone switched our heating off but that was rectified, certainly would stay there againNebcop -Jan 2017
We had a wonderful stay at the Woodland lodge hotel and wish we had booked for longer. The hotel is set in a beautiful location in the New Forest. We booked the package that included dinner and we were not disappointed. First class food. Our room overlooked the gardens and was very clean with a great en-suite bathroom.Croftenguesthouse - Apr 16
Spent 2 nights in this hotel, the staff esp Steve were excellent, the location allows easy access to Southampton ( we went to the Christmas market) and local attractions such as the motor museum and the NT property at mottisfont. The real bonus is the ability just to walk across the back lawn and straight onto the forestMissjar - Dec 2016
Small family run hotel in there's forest. It was our second visit and the staff were again very warm and welcoming and more than helpful and accommodating. Varied breakfast menu so lots of choice, gluten free bread also available. Lovely suite of surpringly dog friends roomsScox - Dec 2016
We had our wedding at Woodlands Lodge 2 weeks ago on Sept 19th. We chose Woodlands as we opted for the smaller package and from the first time we visited we just had such good experiences with all the staff that work there.Holly1991 Sep 15
Imogene was so helpful with the arranging of everything for the day, and really helped ease my mind with the running of how everything would go.
Everybody who stayed commented on how lovely the rooms were and how helpful everybody that works at Woodlands is.
The dinner was absolutely delicious and piping hot, which I know is sometimes difficult with a larger party
Gary and I had a fabulous Christmas with Robert and Imogene and ALL the friendly staff of Woodlands Lodge. From our arrival with our two Cocker spaniels we could not have wished for a better experience... 5 Star all the time.
We stayed at this hotel situated near Ashurst in the New Forest. The hotel staff were very friendly, and excelent throughout. The hotel decor for our bedroom was clean and tasteful, with a very modern bathroom and large showerChris C - Nov 15
We only had a one night stay but it was good enough that first thing in the morning we booked up a return visit. Location couldn't be beaten. The staff were all very attentive and the service was excellent. The fact that they manage to be a dog friendly Hotel as well brilliant!Chuck S Apr 16
