We always stay at South Lodge for our wedding anniversary. The staff are very attentive, polite and warmly welcoming. Dinner in the Camelia restaurant was excellent and breakfast in our room was perfect for the occasion. The views from the south facing rooms are second to none with the South Downs a timeless reminder of the how beautiful Sussex is.... More

From all the reviews this is clearly a top rated hotel, and they charge eye watering prices to match. In many ways our 2 night stay was very good, so how can they commit such howlers at breakfast? It can only be arrogance in the Kitchen, and perhaps the waiting staff are too cowed to point out the obvious. On... More

Stayed for one night as a belated Wedding Anniversary treat for my wife and, of course, me. Superb room, a wonderful panoramic scene over the gardens and lake and breath-taking views of the South Downs (also viewed in luxury from the sumptuous double bed). During our stay we booked for the Pass Restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful full flavour gourmet... More

We initially booked to go and eat at the Camelia restaurant at South Lodge, we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the service was impeccable. We then decided to book high tea as part of our son's wedding celebrations so that both grandmothers could come and enjoy a traditional English high tea. We were given the centre table in the lounge... More

We stay in wonderful hotels around the World, but must say that South Lodge is probably the best ever! What makes it so perfect is that elusive combination of atmosphere; history; style; comfort; luxury; superb food & wine and, above all the right number of staff (although a slight hitch in the bar due to being a member of staff...

We had an amazing overnight stay at Southlodge Hotel which included a 3 course meal at The Cameilla Restaurant. The staff were fantastic, the food was great and it was lovely to have some chocolates and a card left in our room to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely be back soon.

Beautiful impressive hotel, large bedrooms no aircon just a fan. Drain smell in bathroom. 30 minutes to get a gin and tonic bought to the garden after walking around to find staff to take the order. 25 minutes for our 2nd gin and tonic to be bought to the lounge. So gave up waiting. Gins were on the house due... More

Dear Marion F, Thank you for your review following your stay at South Lodge. Despite you finding the hotel beautiful and the bathrooms large, I am sorry the visit did not live up to your expectations or indeed the high standards we set. Many of our bedrooms do feature air conditioning. Our reservations team will be able to book the... More

My partner and I have spent a wonderful weekend at the hotel celebrating a family members birthday. We were blown away by the service, menu and accommodation. We stayed in the Standen Wood room which is situated on the lower ground floor. The suite was spacious and immaculately presented. The bathroom had two baths and a fabulous walk in shower,... More
