I've been to South Lodge a few times now as a delegate at small events, seminars, etc., which they hold there during the day. Knowing the incredibly high standard of their functions, I can quite believe that their service for overnight stays with breakfast are to die for. The building is delightful and the gardens even more so ... culminating... More

Thank you to Julia & Colin for making our stay special. Really kind of you to drop us off and pick us up from the milton keynes bowl and the breakfasts you made us were simply fantastic. The room we stayed in was perfect also (room 3). I don't think there are any learns I could give as feedback just... More

We stayed here overnight before a big day in MK speaking at a conference. The hosts know how to run a fabulous B&B it's better than many hotels. The personal touch is everywhere the style is unique. The rooms are big clean and very well lit. Breakfast was a delight and they make great porridge. That alone gives it 5/5... More

Firstly we would like to thank Julia and Colin for being the best hosts. They couldn't have possibly done anymore for us. We stayed from the 11th-13th July to attend a concert at the bowl and for some couples R & R away from the kids! Julia and Colin took us both to the gig and then picked us up... More

This was our 2nd stay, & it proved that our 1st stay was not a fluke !! Where do I start? This really is an awesome B&B right from when you check in to check out. Julia & Colin go beyond the extra mile to make you feel right at home. We were going to The Stables, only a 10... More

We stayed here on the night of our wedding before jetting off in the morning to our honeymoon destination. The only thing I would change about our stay is the fact we couldn't stay longer!! We arrived around 1am to a bottle of chilled champagne and a comfy bed ;) the next morning breakfast arrived at the time we requested... More

Booked this boutique hotel in conjunction with dining out at Paris House for my sisters 50th birthday celebration. It was easy to find and only 10 mins away from the restaurant. Very impressed that owner Julia offered to drive us to the restaurant instead of getting a taxi. Lovely to have a mini kitchen in the room and the open... More

Booking was effortless, and the welcome/service during our stay was fantastic, with the hosts going the extra mile with some additional personal requests. The breakfast menu was extensive and the food cooked perfectly and delivered on time. The room was well equipped and flawlessly designed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and were only regretful that we weren't able to remain... More

Stayed here for hubbies 40th. Had great room and very accommodating owners, by allowing us the pick up keys early and leave our bags. Would recommend instead of a chain when in the area. Dinned at Thai modern which was not far and had a great 24 hours. Really enjoyed breakfast, which you could tell had had effort and thought... More
