We stayed here a few years ago and had a really good experience so decided to stay again. Sadly, things have changed and not for the better. We had chosen this hotel because it had a swimming pool and sauna. The sauna was out of order. Ok these things happen but added to this was very slow and muddled service... More

We hosted a special event for over 100 guests in the Forest Room and the hotel "did us proud" for a 3 course sit-down meal. Chris Garrett, general manager, ensured everything went exactly as we had planned. Food was delicious, with excellent service by pleasant and attentive waitresses backed up by the unseen staff in the kitchen. We and several... More

The experience you have seems to depend on what room you are allocated. The breakfast is the normal hotel buffet style but whereas Best Western Hotels normally put out croissants and Danish pastries, Forest Lodge doesn't. The evening meal menu is limited and expensive. Room 30 is very small with one small double wardrobe, a small double bed with two... More

Our family took a short break in the New Forest during half term, taking advantage of a very good dinner, bed & breakfast deal. As the hotel is part of the Best Western chain, our expectations were perhaps lower than with some other hotels, however, we were very pleased to be proved wrong. The food was excellent, the staff very... More
