Nice hotel in a great location. Some parts of it getting a bit tired but it is always clean and the staff are nice. Can get busty at weekends as popular with weddings.Bar prices the same as pubs in the town. The New Forest area is lovely with lots to do from Coastal paths to Forrest walks and great towns with bars and places to eat.
as usual the best western hotel chain didn't disappoint, we are now regular users of this accommodation, indoor pool and sauna amongst other things make you feel spoilt and the food is excellent. the room was extremely clean and quiet with all the amenities that you would need for a weekend break.
I have stayed at the Forest Lodge a few times now and always select this hotel when I am near the New Forest The location is really good, right on the edge of Lyndhurst with great access to the New Forest area and handy for the ferry to the Isle of Wight I generally prefer to eat in hotel bars as the atmosphere is more relaxed and barman here is a nice guy, keen to please offering traditional, well mannered service. Best Western offer a range of hotels with very mixed levels of service. This is one the the better ones
