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
Wonderful stay, the staff was very helpful, the room was lovely and the garden view from our window was absolutely stunning! Being able to stargaze from the comfort of our room was a big plus! Already recommended to my friends :)JannT- Sept 2017
We dearly appreciated our long weekend retreat. It was just luxurious enough, without being stuffy or snooty. The room was lovely and comfortable and had everything we would need, with a special touch of opulence added. The staff members were friendly, attentive and welcomingToinette- May 2017

We spent the night at Woodlands with our family and found the hotel to be friendly, welcoming and clean. The setting in the New Forest is brilliant and we went on one of the walks provided by the hotel before we left.Mary B - Aug 2017

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend in January whilst we visited surrounded areas. The hotel location is beautiful, right by the woods we could hear owls and saw a deer from our room. Our room was huge and had a balcony...my mind with the running of how everything would go.Jo H - Aug 2017
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
Came down from London for a couple of days and stayed here as dog friendly. House was built in 1550 so plenty of character. Room was large and bed comfortable. Clean and with plenty of tea and coffee and large bathroom. Lovely view from windowPeter1941- Aug 2017
We stayed for 1 night in one of the dog friendly rooms. The welcome from all the staff could not have been warmer. The room was spacious,light and very comfortable,and in true dog friendly style our dog was provided her own blanket, towel and bone!Mark S Mar 2017
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
