Greetings from the New Forest!
I am pleased to report that March was a great month for us at Woodlands Lodge. The sun has started to shine and the gardeners are back tending our garden the ponies have re emerged in the forest and our boots are all a lot less muddy! Happy New Forest Days.
We started the month with a wedding and finished the month with one too, and not forgetting the one in the middle we have had a wedding -tastic month J we wish all our bride and grooms a wonderful happy life together and we hope to welcome you all back soon.
We also hosted our wedding showcase in conjunction with the New Forest Tourism association. The hotel looked absolutely amazing and we welcomed 30 couples through our doors and were lucky to get 4 weddings out of the day too. A huge thank you for everyone who came along and to all the staff who helped make the day such a success.
On the decorating front we were able to succeed in redoing room 14 and it looks great. I can’t believe how big the bathroom now looks- with a simple layout alteration. Good work Daniel Robinson & Trefor Lunn. It was a close call though with the finishing touches completed 1.5 hours before the guests arrived. As always everything takes longer than expected and so whereas we achieve a new shower and bathroom in room 8 we still need to decorate- soon very soon!!
We have also got lots of stair carpet samples at the moment and hope to book this in and make a final decision next week- eeek lots of choice what to choose!!
We had a very successful Mothering Sunday too, with 80 guests coming to have lunch with us. Thank you very much for choosing us and we hope that everyone had a delicious lunch.
We are looking forward to Easter and still have some great New Forest deals to be had and so we look forward to seeing you at Woodlands Lodge very soon
