We booked this only a week before arriving using Trip Advisor reviews as a guide. This review is a mixture of the good and the not so good as, being an ex-hotelier myself, I believe it's the only way for businesses to move forward. I would certainly stay again, so my comments are exactly that: 'my' own personal thoughts and... More

Stayed in the Tom Hayter room. A small but cosy room with nice small patio area, just right for enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day. Also enjoyed breakfast the next morning which was delivered to our room. Loved the fact that parking was reserved for us from the morning of our stay so that although... More

My partner and I enjoyed a two night weekend break here. We stayed in the Bolderwood room which is downstairs at the front of the property. It was spotless and well equipped. There is some minor road noise but not enough to spoil anyones stay. The breakfasts are very nice and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The... More

I admit to choosing Cottage Lodge because it had not only excellent reviews but because it is dog friendly & when we holiday as we often do for short breaks, in the New Forest our Labrador must come with us. She thoroughly approved & was made very welcome. We were also made very welcome & appreciated the special touches such... More

Arriving here on spec, as refugees from an unpleasant experience elsewhere, we were overcome by the helpfulness of the staff here. Although they weren't able to offer us a room for our whole stay they contacted a nearby hotel and arranged for us to continue our stay there. The rooms are gorgeous, each one furnished and decorated in an individual... More

We stayed for 1 night in the little Alice room. The room is the smallest but still quite airy although anyone over 6' may struggle in this room. The welcome we received on arrival was very friendly and the owners are very helpful. We only had breakfast at the cottage which was fantastic. For dinner we ate at the snake... More

It has been 18 months since my last stay at Cottage Lodge and there have been a few changes. My family stayed in " Exbury", "Rheinfeld" and " Little Alice". All the rooms are of a very high standard and the little lounge in Exbury, was a great area for the family to congregate and play board games, after long... More

We stayed two nights and loved every minute. The rooms are clean and spacious, the breakfast freshly cooked and an added bonus of the Fallen Tree restaurant on the premises. You can walk to everywhere and parking is a bonus. One thing I would suggest to improve the 'honesty bar' would be to have wine available by the glass.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights in mid-July. We received a very warm welcome from the lady on duty (can't remember your name! Sorry!) and was shown our room promptly. We stayed on the first floor with a 4 poster bed. The room was very clean, tidy and nicely decorated. The lodge itself was charming inside and... More
