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!

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is old and quirky with a lovely atmosphere. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and shown the stairs to our room. The room was large and spacious with two single beds. The beds were comfortable, the towels were thick and clean. The bathroom was functional,shower was wonderful with a good water supply. The...

Upon arrival, first impression of the hotel was that it was a little run down. Staff initially seemed helpful. We weren't shown to our room, just handed our keys and pointed in the general direction of the stairs we needed to go up. Upon entering the room it was like stepping back in time! the decor was very out dated,... More

Attended a group supper here for the first time. Had tried other venues with this and other groups but South Lawn turned out to be the best. Nice welcoming bar area where we could all meet up and chat in some comfort. Food was above average for this type of function all served with a smile. Wine prices a little... More
