We stayed here for four nights and were completely satisfied. We had a lovely, larger than average room with a view over some fields with sheep. Restaurant and bar first class, staff very attentive, polite and friendly. We will not hesitate to stay here again.

We arrived early, but so we could access our room it was arranged that the room would be cleaned straight away, while we sat and had a coffee in lovely surroundings. The room was exceptionally spacious and well-equipped, and the bathroom was very up to date and had a power shower. Nikki and staff were friendly and helpful at all... More

Location of this hotel is good, however, we did have to drive everyday as the hotel isn't walking distance to Lymington., (possibly Milford on Sea if you are up for it!). Nice, clean room, requested a newer one and appreciated our request being taken into account. It didn't seem completely finished though - paint work average and already some marks... More

First visit to South Lawn and not disappointed. Warm welcome, clean with exceptionally large room. Lovely gardens. Updating work going on but did not interfere with visit. Good food but rather limited although did cater for my requirements. Excellent Sunday lunch. Will definitely visit again.

Great place to stay when in the New Forest. Convenient central location to base yourself and such lovely rooms in beautiful quiet surroundings. The food in the restaurant was so tasty and reasonably priced that we actually ate there for our breakfasts and evening meals after having researched other establishments in the area. The staff were so friendly and helpful,... More

Having previously visited Soith Lawn a few years ago, it was nice to return and see the improvements that have been made. Work is still underway so there will be more to come. The new restaurant and bar area is really nice and they provided a very nice breakfast. Didn't try the evening meal, as we went into Milford on... More

Im sorry if the zip link beds caused some discomfort, they are often requested as the bed provides a super king size. We do have standard doubles so if we have the pleasure of welcoming you back just give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate. More
