South Lodge is a beautifully presented property both inside and out, incorporating a modern cultural decor with some lovely pieces of artwork and sculptures on display. The attention to detail is markedly noticeable throughout and unsurpassable in comparison to often what is offered in hotels that are purported to be of a high calibre. Certainly like no other B&B that... More

Honestly couldn't recommend highly enough, wonderful setting and accomodation and Julia and Colin were ideal hosts who couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was perfect. We'll certainly be going back!

I last stayed here in April 2012. I returned in July 2014 for one night. This time I stayed in Room 1. Smaller than Room 3, but with all the same refinements. Again the teas,coffees, home-made muffin; bottled water, Caprisun, fresh milk in the fridge. Even dental floss on the tray. Everything has been considered. The decor is amazing, all... More

I stayed here for one night on a business trip and I found it a really pleasent place to stay. Having got there mid afternoon, I was able to have enough space to do some work, before being able to chill out and relax in the evening. Julia and Colin made me feel very welcome and provided lots of information... More

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
