Our children bought us a night in a suite at the hotel together with dinner in The Pass restaurant. We were checked in by a very friendly and helpful receptionist and shown to our room, which was the size of a small bungalow, with absolutely everything you needed, superb!! Dinner was amazing (separate review) and the breakfast was equally outstanding,...

This was our first visit to South Lodge and I cannot wait to go back. Everything about our stay was excellent from the room to the wonderful meal we had. I particularly enjoyed the cocktail menu. A lovely touch having the tablets in the rooms.

We celebrated my husband's surprise 50th birthday at South Lodge last weekend and wow, what a weekend. Friends and family travelled from all parts of the country. Everyone raved about the food, nothing was too much for the friendly and helpful staff and the grounds are stunning. This is our favourite, local hotel and a true gourmet dining experience, whether...

Afternoon tea at South Lodge is truly a wonderful experience. Fabulous sandwiches and cakes, and the most amazing choice of teas. Staff are attentive and friendly and the room is elegant and calm without being intimidating. We had a celebration and this was just the perfect way to mark it.

Have just left the South Lodge hotel and am puzzled by the excellent reviews. The hotel is madly overpriced and in need of serious updating - from the 80s curtains and furnishings to the bumbling, curiously inefficient service. Lack of basic service skills and and again outdated menus; a very basic TV package in room; a DVD library where no...
