Friendly service made a weekend away with our 2 young children a joy. Great hotel and grounds, location and fantastic breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay for couples, friends or families. A great base to explore the area or like us visit Peppa Pig World.Sarah K – June 2015
Friendly welcome, charming gardens on the very edge of the Forest. Kids loved playing giant chess, then playing on the rope swing in the Forest. Us adults enjoyed a couple of drinks outside before we all tried the restaurant, Wonderful food beautifully presented. Service first class, even the kids ate every bit.Simon C – June 2015
Family meal for 4. Fabulous locally sourced meat and veg main courses and tempting interesting starters. At a very reasonable price. We will be back again.Whiri - June 2015
All three courses were great portion sizes and excellent quality, and value for money. It was part of a deal, as we stayed at the hotel, but if in the area, we would dine there and recommend it as well.susieb4210 - June 2015

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.
Just spent our wedding anniversary here wonderful place we paid for breakfast and 3 course evening meal. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. We have a german shephard and it was nice to find somewhere that excepts large and small dogs with no fuss.Wendt H Oct 15
We greatly enjoyed the Afternoon Tea in a beautiful conservatory full of light. Very friendly and attentive service. The scones are worlds from the next best. Never have eaten anything like it. There was ample jam and clotted cream. Coming from Switzerland it was alone well worth the journey to the New Forest.Renate W Oct 15
