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
We have just got back from a one night stay at woodlands and we would highly recommend it! It was my husband, myself and our 3 year old. We all had a fab time. The room was spacious and a bed had been set up for my son which was comfortable enough. The food in the restaurant was the defiantly the best point about the hotel along with the wonderful service. We were made to feel welcome at all times and having a toddler this some times does not happen!Miranda L - Feb 2016

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
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.Kath C - Feb 2016
Ideal location for a peaceful stay in the New Forest. Rooms are very comfortable, even if (like most such old properties), the shape/layout is a bit eccentric. Far better any way than modern cookie cutter places in this kind of setting. The staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful and the food is excellent - fully justifying the AA Rosette....Steve C - Apr 16
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 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
