Set in an elegant Georgian building on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst, the BEST WESTERN Forest Lodge is a perfect base for exploring the New Forest National Park.
The village centre, with its quaint cafés and medieval pubs, is less than a 10-minute walk away and the 9-hole New Forest Golf Course is just a mile from the hotel. The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is a 20-minute drive, Southampton is a 30-minute drive and, for families, Paulton’s Family Theme Park (home of Peppa Pig World) is only 15 minutes by car.
Back at the hotel, the 2 AA-Rosette Glasshouse Restaurant offers dishes such as pan-seared veal tongue with blackberry ketchup, or fillet of salmon with smoked haddock and potato brandade, as well as more traditional steaks and roasts -- or try the less formal Forest Restaurant. For an evening aperitif, try the on-site Terrace Bar or Cellar Bar. Alternatively, the well-reviewed Waterloo Arms is just 200 metres away. In the morning, there’s a cold buffet with fruit, cereal and pastries, while hot dishes are made to order. There’s a 15-metre indoor pool and a Nordic sauna -- both free for guests to use.
Rooms are simply furnished with some original features, and WiFi is free throughout. Family rooms with bunk beds and pull-out sofas are available, and pets are welcome in some rooms (advance booking is required and extra charge applies). Request a room away from the pool as it can get noisy during peak times.
