Pets welcome at hotel. Great price and location for a wedding or party venue also. Outside space has lots on offer for sitting and reading in warmer weather... More

Recently stayed at the hotel following a 40th birthday party. Fantastic staff and great room for the party. The hotel itself has new ownership and has already had some of the décor improved and modernised; it was clean and well presented and the room very comfortable. I was only there for an evening but location is good so great to... More

I attended a 40th birthday party and stayed overnight. The room was 'tired' and the curtains did not meet. The remote for the tv was ineffective. The main door was below my room and required a slam to make it shut - irritating. However, I realise that the new owners are making great strides in their makeover and I'm sure... More

We had stayed here about 3 years ago, but the transformation is amazing. The new owners have worked miracles in the 16 weeks since they took over. The Reception, Restaurant and Bar are now modern and welcoming and the food is absolutely outstanding. About half the bathrooms have been made over and when all are completed the bedrooms are to...

We had a family break as a late christmas present. A beautiful area and the south lawn hotel is ideally placed for strolling into milford on sea. Lovely attentive staff. Dog friendly. Good breakfast and nice rooms. Good parking

The new owners are doing s great job of bringing this hotel back to life. However keeping a place going during renovation has its drawbacks for guests. The strong smell of paint was overwhelming and the newly installed shower was a dribble due to lack of pressure. We were assured that pumps are being installed so if this is important... More

I am sorry that our refurbishment compromised your stay slightly but of course delighted to read that you would stay again. For sure the pressure of water is a priority to us and we have taken delivery of pumps today for the 4 rooms that had not had them fitted in the original refurbishment. I appreciate that breakfast can be... More

My husband and I have been visiting South Lawn for years, mainly because we go there with my parents who love it. For the past few years I've come away saying 'never again!' because it had become so dilapidated and the meal times actually an embarrassment because no one in their right mind would pay for what was presented. Well,... More

Very welcoming and made to feel very special. I would recommend this hotel to anyone at any time of the year. The food and wine was very good. The hotel room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly. Thank you.

This is a lovely hotel in a perfect location. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The two rooms that we had booked were large and overlooked the fields and sheep. The bathrooms in both the rooms had recently been refurbished and my only niggle was the shower pressure (not very good) and the hairdryer in our room (12) did... More

Thanks for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are aware from the first bathrooms that we refurbished that the water pressure is poor in the hotel. All bathrooms since have been fitted with shower pressure pumps and we will revisit the early rooms as soon as we can. Hairdryers are to all be replaced when we... More
