We are delighted to offer our very own version of family friendly at the Cottage Lodge Hotel in the new forest. In our book children are children until they are 18.
You can book 2 x 2ft 6 inch wide mattress on the floor in our family friendly Gillies Holt until they are 18 for £15 per night per child inclusive of breakfast. This room will also take a cot instead of one mattress. We need you to use your common sense. If your child is the size of a large adult, then they might need a proper bed in a room of their own. But, if they can still sleep comfortably on a 2ft 6 wide bed then they are children until their 18th birthday.
This room is particularly good for families because it is tucked away at the rear of the building with its own private stairs and access to a tiny garden. You don’t have to worry about anyone else around you as you are on the first floor of a barn.
Let’s be honest, most children have no problem with coping with a hotel room in the main hotel. However, my children would have got very excited and start jumping off the bed at 6am in the morning when they were little. If your children are the same as mine then please think about staying in the Gillies Holt, and not in the main hotel.
If your children are fine with a hotel room and understand about respecting the quiet of others around them then the William 1st can be a family friendly room and can take two mattresses (3ft wide) on the floor at £15 per mattress per child per night inclusive of breakfast. Or a cot at £5.00. Can’t take three children but can take two comfortably.
The James Hill can also be a family friendly room. It is on the first floor and has a Romeo and Juliette balcony. So you need to take extra care with your children. If you open the balcony doors you must supervise your children at all times. This room can take two mattresses or a mattress and cot.
The Exbury Room can take a proper 3ft bed, but this costs a little more (£25 per night) and we can only take one child. You must be careful in the Exbury because there is a balcony that you can go out onto. If you bring a child into this room they must be supervised at all times on the balcony.
At this point we are talking about two rooms. We ask you not to leave children on their own in a room without discussing it with us. There are two reasons for this: the safety and security issues surrounding your child and the comfort of other guests in the room next door.
For a family of four with a dog we would suggest that you have the Morant (twin dog friendly room for two people) and the Tom Hayter (dog friendly double room next door). This combination works well because the rooms are next door to each other and share a garden.
For a family of five or six with a dog we would suggest the Gillies Holt (can take up to four) and the Morant (twin).
For a family of three with a dog we would suggest the Standing Hat (four poster) with a bed (£25).
