I booked this hotel for a night's stay for myself, my partner and our dog. I was looking for somewhere in the New Forest that welcomed dogs. Our dog is a very nervous rescue and I let the hotel know that she can be erratic and bark at strangers. We have never taken her to a b&b and so were... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night . The room was recently decorated . Very clean and comfortable. If we wanted to we could sit in the garden my husband and I found it very relaxing. We had some noise from traffic but nothing we worried about. we slept comfortably and felt very welcome. Plenty of parking . First... More

This is a hotel where time stopped somewhere around 1974. If felt like the old folks home you'd have second thoughts about booking your granny in to. Worn carpets, temporary guttering inside the building to catch the ingress of water from a leaking roof, avocado green toilet suites, bar closed at 10pm, front door locked at 10pm, unfriendly staff, awful...

Was in Milton for the day and noticed the hotel advertising their cream teas. Seemed like the perfect end to a nice trip to the coast. Instead we got greeted like we were intruding. Sat in an almost empty room we were brought some tea and that was the last we saw of the staff until they walked in with... More

A lovely hotel within walking distance of amenities and the beach! South Lawn is a very nice hotel set in lovely landscaped grounds. The hotel overlooks fields with sheep and horses. A road is quite close to the hotel but it is still fairly quiet. My dog and I stayed in two different rooms as, after booking one night we... More

Wife and I stayed last night. Food was lovely, Gavin the barman was a great help and the grounds were lovely. Didn't enjoy being woken at 8 by loud slamming door in kitchen. Hotel a bit dated, but still had an enjoyable stay. Perfect for one night.

We stayed for one night as we had a family party in Milford. Our room was very large and overlooked the fields behind with sheep and horses for company. I would agree that the hotel rooms need refurbishing as they are stuck in a 1970s time warp, including corby trouser press and ancient hairdryer sitting in a hole in the... More

Just a one night stay in quite a large comfortable room. Twin beds were very comfortable there was a large comfy 3 seater sofa with matching chair, TV, coffee table and numerous drawers and a wardrobe. The bathroom needed TLC but was very clean. Breakfast was very nice with lots of choice, waitresses were very attentive.

Stayed at the hotel for four nights and found the staff very friendly and welcoming. Ate from both the bar and restaurant menus and the meals presented were far below standard, with major items missing, despite being listed on the menu, it appeared the chef was not reading his own offerings. Made it very difficult for the waiting staff. Room... More

.This was our second time at South Lawn The staff made us welcome and helpful. The breakfast was enjoyable plenty to eat and cooked well. We had room 17 overlooking the fields with horses and sheep. The only fault I had with the room was the bathroom the shower was low if you were tall person you would have problems
