Stayed here for a midweek spring break , lovely and quiet , friendly staff. Good choice of breakfast, did not stay for dinner we ate out but prices start at £14.95. Hotels Is old but warm and clean just needs some TLC, a good base to explore from.

Pleasant looking hotel from the outside but as most other reviewers say inside the decor is very dated and the main lounge area feels very much like an old folks home . We only stayed for one night , our bedroom was very pleasant though rather an outmoded bathroom and the shower difficult to stand under as so close to... More

We wanted a nice relaxing weekend and that's exactly what we got. Checked in just after three and went up to our room (16) which was fairly large, clean, warm with a lovely view over the fields. Yes, place could do with a coat of paint but this doesn't effect the overall feel of the place. Evening meal was really... More

The hotel is obviously past its best and it very tired and worn out but the staff were extremely friendly and worked really hard. the beds were comfortable and clean... More

The place does need a face lift, BUT the hotel offers great value and the staff are very friendly and happy to help. The breakfast was awesome; the juices, cereals, range of jams and cheeses was always well stocked. The Veg breakfast was very large portions and well cooked. The bar was reasonably priced and very well served. There is... More

Friendly welcome. Our room was huge an very clean, and we had double basins in the bathroom which was fun. Very lovely to see the horses from our window. The grounds were very well kept and I can imagine that in the warmer months it will be nice to sit outside. We enjoyed the walks around Milford and it took... More

We travelled to this Hotel with 2 other couples. it's an annual event to find a good deal for a couple of nights for dinner, bed and breakfast and South Lawn Hotel delivered that in spades. From the moment we walked in the door, there was a friendly feel to the place. The welcome was very nice. We had asked... More

I have stayed here twice mainly as its close to relatives that I visit. The location is quite convenient but the hotel needs a lot of investment to bring it up to standard . Carpets are worn and the furniture needs replacing , the hotel is badly in need of a major renovation. The worst aspect is that the housekeeping... More
