Just lovely, everything was perfect. From the nice and cosy room to the free cake in the snug to the excellent breakfast. Last but not least, the friendly and helpful staff deserves an extra mention. We used Brockenhurst as our basis for exploring the New Forest and I could not recommend the Cottage Lodge Hotel any more. I would return... More

My wife and I booked Cottage Lodge the night before and managed to nab the last room available on our way down to Devon for a long weekend. We got a great price (£89 inc breakfast) so weren't expecting much for that price, but we were eating our words when we arrived. First impressions as you drive through the picturesque... More

Lovely Clean Room. Comfortable Bed. Our Room was the Bolderwood, described as cosy double, this room was lovely, not small/cosy iny any way. Lovely little touches, with your name on your parking space :-) Friendly staff, happy to offer advise about places to go and see. Would easily stay again.

Cottage Lodge hotel is in a great location in the new forest, in the village of Brockenhurst. It has all the usual amenities and is close to the start of nice walks. The hotel was built in 1650 as a forrester's cottage, so it has heaps or character. Our room (rhinefield) was clean and comfortable. There are photocopies of good... More

Stayed for 3 nights and it was excellent. Starting with the welcome to the breakfast and rooms everything was great. Would recommend The Cottage Lodge to anybody planning a stay in the New Forest/Brockenhurst areas.

Their are lots of other great reviews giving details about the Cottage Lodge, so rather than repeat all the accolades I will simply say that they are all correct. You won't be disappointed. The attention to detail is first class. Small things which in isolation you might not notice, add up to make the stay memorable. The whole is greater... More
