Happy Couples Say
Just back from the most amazing family wedding - from the moment we walked into the reception area the warmth and professionalism of the staff (especially Imogene and Steve) and the atmosphere of the hotel combined to make it an incredible weekend.Eagles55 - 2019
We were looking for a friendly, informal hotel for our wedding and found the Woodlands Lodge Hotel located in a lovely spot in the New Forest. From our very first meeting Imogene and her team made us most welcome and gave us confidence that this was the perfect venue for us and our 30 guests, we were certainly not disappointed! On the wedding day everything went as planned thanks to all the staff who were just brilliant. The chef did a great job and all our guests commented on the lovely wedding breakfast and the breakfast the next morning. The whole day was just perfect we couldn't have asked for anything more.ChrisH - 2019
For those looking for a wedding venue ... look no further! We had our wedding here July 2021 opting for the 'exclusively yours package'. Imogene, the owner & wedding organiser, together with her staff were professional, helpful & friendly from our first initial visit & throughout. Our wedding was postponed during 2020. Imogene could not have been more reassuring & flexible as we planned for our second date, not quite knowing what restrictions would be in place. We cannot fault the service provided on 'the day' ensuring that all ran as smoothly as possible. Many of our guests were so impressed with Woodlands Lodge they intend returning! The grounds are beautiful & ideal for photos. Being 'dog friendly' was a bonus! We had the most fabulous day - a huge thank you to all…Amanda- Jul 21
We had our wedding weekend here– and I cannot recommend this venue enough! Imogene, the owner and wedding coordinator was absolutely brilliant. She was very patient with us and took the time to listen and understand what we had in mind. She also helped guide us to create a wonderful day! The staff at the hotel were excellent! Always happy to help and were one step ahead all the time! All our guests were complimentary about the hotel and service. At the lead up to the wedding we used to pop around every so often to remind ourselves what the rooms were like – and we were always made to feel welcome.CallumandEmma- 2019
The food… was mouthwatering
We have just returned from a wonderful weekend of having sole use of this great hotel for our daughters wedding. It went perfectly. All the staff were wonderful, the food was great and being dog friendly we were able to take our dog tooMark S - 2019
