There is a large lounge with plenty of sofas for relaxing. We had a large ground floor twin room overlooking the garden and a field of sheep so it was very quiet. There was plenty of storage including nine drawers and the room had new, clean windows. There was a choice of classic British dishes at dinner served with beautifully... More

My second visit here. Not the most modern hotel I have stayed in. However, teetering on the edge of needing some serious investment, I felt relaxed and at home. The staff were very helpful and attentive. I do understand some of the other comments in regard to the repetitive menu and infrastructure, but "Worst Hotel in the UK" absolutely not.The... More

The management have no idea how to run a hotel. The staff were so unhelpful - I asked if the bathroom fan could be mended, it still hadn't been a week later - it didn't surprise me too much as it was caked with cobwebs and dirt and obviously hadn’t worked for probably years. The separate toilet door didn't have... More

Once again, my husband and I booked the New Year package at South Lawn. We had been for the new year celebrations in 2012 and this year was just as good as the last time. On arrival we were greeted by the manager and booked into our very large and comfortable room. After this we went down into the lounge... More

We loved staying here, the staff were without exception friendly, helpful and courteous. The room was big, although the shower was very low indeed so we had to stoop to use it. Lovely views over fields. Breakfast was fantastic, as well as a buffet for cereal, pastries etc there was table service for hot drinks and hot breakfasts that were... More

I was slightly worried before our stay as the reviews for this hotel are so mixed. As I had been quoted £50 BB for the two of us & £ 8.50 for our dog a night my expectations were not overly high. How wrong I was! The hotel is a very traditional building with extensive grounds. The public rooms were... More

We always stay at the South Lawn when we are cycling the Isle of Wight. The last two years we required an early breakfast and we're treated to a room tray containing cereal, juice, croissants etc etc. Everything we needed for a successful start to the day. The staff at South Lawn are very accommodating and we will definitely be... More

We stayed for two nights at the South Lawn for the second year running. We are cyclists and we're taking part in the Isle of Wight Sportive. As last year we required an early breakfast and we're treated to a room breakfast containing everything a cyclist needs, porridge, juice, croissants etc etc We'll definitely be back again!
