My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently.On arrival we were greeted at reception with a friendly smile and were made to feel very welcome. I would have given South Lawn an 'excellent' rating, but although our room was spacious, comfortable and clean, there had obviously been issues with water leaks in the past which hadn't... More

We loved stopping here. We were made to feel so welcome and had a very relaxing weekend, especially after a dreadful stay at a Christchurch B and B a couple of months ago. This hotel had character and was so different from some of those very modern, faceless corporate places.The bedroom was large, with an excellent en-suite. The breakfast was... More

Easy to find just five minutes from Milford on Sea centre. Very welcoming and excellent staff. There was a wedding going on but our room was well away from any noise. Comfortable nights sleep. Nice to have breakfast cooked to order rather than the faceless buffet style so popular these days. Followed breakfast with tea on the lawn and the... More

We had a wonderful few days at South Lawn. The welcome was marvellous - and our little dog had an even warmer welcome! Our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, and had a nice view over the gardens. The bed was huge and had a comfy duvet, whilst there were plenty of tea/coffee/biscuits too. Although the bathroom could do with... More

We have just returned from South lawn hotel having had a pleasant stay. However we were very disappointed with the decor generally in the hotel, wallpaper hanging off walls in many rooms, carpets in public areas and stairs need repairing. The carpet in our very large room was filthy, stained and covered in dog hair which we complained about, also... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and had an enjoyable stay. Yes, the decor is a little out of date but the rates reflect this. The food was good and plentiful and the staff were very helpful, especially Sue. Had a large room overlooking a paddock and although the hotel was quite full, the atmosphere was quiet and... More

In a little bit old fashion hotel we had a very large and comfortable room with good beds. The hospitality was very good. We could order our main meal and the waiter called us when it was ready!. Even the dessert was served outside in the sun.

The room (No.24) was large,comfortable and hot water abundant. Towels were soft and fluffy. The view from the room was calming and pretty and it was so... More
