Stayed here with my partner for one night in the Gillies Holt room for a mini-break in the forest. The location was ideal, being just around the corner from the shops/cafes of Brockenhurst. Room was great - comfy bed, quiet, nice bathroom and had it's own stairs going up to it, so nice and private. My only complaint (and I'm... More

If you are looking for high quality accommodation with excellent service then look no further. The location is perfect, in the middle of the new forest and a 5 minute walk from the railway station. The main building dates back to 1650 and has a very low ceiling height. I'm 6'2" so I did bump my head a bit. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for the first time on 10 July. Good to have a reserved parking space and a very warm welcome. A very comfortable room with splendid furnishings carved from a fallen ash tree - brilliant and different. Excellent breakfast with a very wide choice. Look forward to staying again.

We have previously stayed in Brockenhurst, but this was our first time at the Cottage Lodge. We were impressed. On arrival you have your personal parking space, which is a very nice touch after a long drive. Our room was very nicely decorated, comfortable and cleaned to a high standard, with a lovely little patio area with our own private... More

We were bought a one night stay at the Cottage Lodge as a Christmas present and we took advantage of it midweek as a treat for my husband's birthday. On arrival, we received the warmest welcome from Sandy, who showed us round the restaurant and Snug (free cake 24/7 and an honesty bar!) before showing us to our room, Exbury.... More
