We arrived upon being greeted and offered tea and cake as we check in was nice. Room was small but lovely and unique with hand made bed and other units in the room. Breakfast was great too and locally sourced, be sure to try the jams they are the best by far!. Christina the owner went above and beyond to make our stay extra special as we got engaged while we were away, she gave us bucks fizz and put a banner on our door. Would highly recommend and would stay here again. The only negatives were each night was a little noisy outside our window downstairs keeping us up just couldnt work out where it was coming from, the room was very hot too even with the fan and windows open. The bed itself was very comfy and bathroom nice although shower was a little too powerful for my liking. Other then this it was great. Thank you very much Cottage lodge, a stay to remember.

Room Tip: quaint, unique. Centre of new forest

It was a pleasure to stay at the Cottage Lodge hotel. Ideal location with easy walks into the forest, near the Train Station, with dedicated parking for each room, a nice touch. The staff were attentive, polite and professional. The rooms are of a brilliant standard for the price, very well thought out. Fast internet with great coverage throughout. I'd recommend it, and am sure I'll be staying again.

Super friendly, beautiful place and we could even charge our electric car! Brockenhurst village is picturesque and there's bike hire round the corner to visit more of the new forest or go to the beach!

This is a excellent hotel..!!
We stayed here for a short break, and after reading previous reviews on TripAdvisor chose this hotel, we weren't disappointed the staff on arrival we very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel relaxed, and with two young children 3 and 6 was a big plus. Room was excellent, very clean and catered perfectly for us. Service at breakfast were excellent. Nice small touches coffee and cake in the afternoon in the snug, and the honesty bar were a great idea..!! Location was perfect every thing was in walking distance. Plenty of cycle routes close to the hotel was great as we had our bikes !!
In all a 5 star stay and we will be back..!!!

Dear Smudger 1203,

Thank you so much for your kind review of Cottage Lodge. We are glad to hear that your family all enjoyed your stay here with us. We are so pleased that you had the opportunity to get out and about exploring our great cycle routes. There is plenty to keep the young people (and not so young) busy here in The New Forest and Hampshire area, whether it be paddling in the streams or sea, crabbing, boat trips & canoeing, pony riding, walking, visiting Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park or more traditional pursuits such as a visit to the many local places of interest. Many guests choose to take a ferry trip over to The Isle of Wight.

We hope to see you again soon
With very best wishes

When we arrived at Cottage Lodge we found a little sign with our names on reserving a parking space for us, which was a lovely touch, only enhanced by the warm welcome of Kelly as we stepped through the door.
The hotel is cosy and has a wonderful country feel. The snug which you enter upon arrival has a log fire and complimentary cake supported by stunning natural wood tables.
We stayed in James Hill which had a very comfortable bed and nice double doors over looking the front. Hair drier was very good and toiletries were of a reasonable standard. All very clean.
Breakfast is usually tricky for me being gluten and dairy free however they were very good offering soya milk, gluten free bread & sausages.
The area itself is really charming with cows and new forest ponies galore. We went on one of the walks which was in the folder in the snug. We took our print out and the directions were really clear and easy to follow which was great.
Christine the owner introduced herself to us over breakfast and was very chatty and pleasant, particularly when we were checking out. We look forward to hopefully going back again in the autumn (& hopefully getting the cow picture I was admiring whilst there this time)
