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

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
