We spent two nights at the hotel last week on Bed and Breakfast and although we have no real complaint with the hotel found it was needing a really good update in many areas. The bathroom in room 5 was not of the standard one expects these days and as for the loo paper well have had better in public... More

We booked for two nights. Our room was clean but dated, however the bathroom in my opinion was well below the standard of a hotel that proports to have three stars. Both basins were badly cracked and had been for some time. The shower pressure was poor and temperature control even more so as neither of us could get under... More

The hotel is very spacious inside and out; our room was big, light, airy and warm, with a view over open fields, not overlooked. However the bathroom was somewhat dated, very difficult to adjust the over-bath shower to get an acceptable temperature (too hot!). The breakfast was adequate, but we would have liked the option of vegetarian sausages or similar.... More

We have stayed at this hotel three times and it has improved in the last couple of years to a very good standard. The hotel is on a large plot with lots of parking and a well kept garden mainly laid to lawn (hence the name). The hotel is a ten minute walk outside of the village so it is... More

Stayed for four nights on a long weekend after Easter. We found the hotel to be comfortable, friendly and peaceful. I'm not sure what prompted the 'old folks home' comment on a previous review - seems unnecessary and rather hurtful - as so often on TA, comments sometimes say more about the reviewer than what is being reviewed. Yes, it's... More

I am not normally a person that writes reviews however after my stay at South Lawn I feel that it really does deserve an outstanding review. On arrival we pulled into the gorgeous grounds of the hotel, with perfectly manicured gardens and a large gravel car park. The hotel building looks grand with black wooden beams; this is the first...

Just got back from an Easter break at this hotel, Been 3 times before, last time about 10 years ago. Hotel still needs updating and redecorating and new bathroom fittings. The pillows were uncomfortable but did find some other ones which were a bit better. Our room was very spacious with a 2 seater sofa and overlooked the gardens. The... More
