“Lovely room and great restaurant”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

we stayed here for a night with friends and had a deluxe room which was lovely with great views. we borrowed mountain bikes and cycled round the grounds. Dinner in the Pass restaurant was a great experience - you sit in the kitchen and can watch the chefs at work and chat to them. One downside - poor service at breakfast.

Room Tip: The deluxe room was worth the extra money

Dear Charlie M,

Thank for your super review and for joining us for your short break with friends. There is no better ways to explore our 93 acres of grounds than to borrow one of our bikes.

The Michelin starred Pass restaurant is such a fabulous experience with our special take on the Chef’s table concept. Matt and his team are delighted you enjoyed it.

I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back shortly.

Kindest regards,

Mark Surguy

We stayed the night here as we were attending the wedding of our friends' daughter.
The room was magnificent and the en-suite bathroom was exceptional.
Everything in this hotel is top quality and although quite expensive it is worth every penny.

This was our second stay here and I just love everything about this hotel. We stayed in a junior suite, the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath with tv above and a huge rain shower, there were all the amenities you could possibly want or need. The bar serves amazing champagne cocktails and the food is delicious. All staff were helpful and friendly. We also took a walk around the gardens which were beautiful, a nice touch that there was a vase in the room if we wanted to pick our own flowers too. All in all, no complaints, we had a fantastic stay and I can't wait to go back. Possibly the only suggestion is that a spa would be nice.

Dear Claire S,

Thank you for joining us for a second time and rating your stay so positively.
Your bedroom sound simply divine. Our ‘WOW’ bathrooms are a real draw and understandably so with Jacuzzi baths and Aquavision TV’s. I am delighted the team were helpful and friendly. They will be delighted to read your comments.

Watch this space, we do hope to start work on a spa soon.

I do hope I have the pleasure of welcoming you back.

I Visited here for Afternoon Tea with a group of friends, lovely Hotel set in fabulous countryside, tea was served in the Drawing Room. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, thoroughly recommend as a girlie treat, we arrived at 2.30pm and left at 6pm, tea was a selection of beautiful sandwiches cakes pastries, served with a wide selection of teas and coffees. Glass of champagne (extra) but a must to complete the experience, staff very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Definitely a treat to be had.

Dear Lisa W,

Thank you very much for visiting. All of us at South Lodge are delighted you enjoyed your afternoon tea treat. South Lodge is a wonderful destination to while away an afternoon. In winter you can snuggle in front of the fire in one of our lounges whilst in summer the al fresco terrace is the perfect place to take in the views and even play a game of croquet.

We do look forward to seeing you before too long.

All the best,

Dear Vicky S,

Thank you very much for joining us and for taking the time to post your wonderful review.
I am so happy you enjoyed your bedroom. It’s a tough choice between a relaxing bath whilst watching the Aquavision TV or a soak in one of our showers with horizontal and vertical rain bars!

Many of our rooms do feature air conditioning. I will make a note of your room preferences for when you are next with us. With that in mind please do come call or email our friendly reservations team or book online via southlodgehotel.co.uk.

With very best wishes,

My husband and I stayed at South Lodge on Good Friday (I know I'm late writing a review but better late than never!). We stayed in a junior suite which overlooked the beautiful gardens and views of the stunning Sussex! Had we bought suitable footwear, we would have taken a walk around the extensive grounds and picked flowers as suggested by the hotel and put them in the vase supplied in the room. The suite was very large and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was also large and well equipped. The TV at the end of the bath was a nice touch and the shower could accommodate a small party! We ate in The Pass restaurant and had the taster menu with the wine flight. This was a good choice as both of us drank wines we were not familiar with. The whole evening's experience was fantastic and the food amazing. This was our first experience of Michelin star-rated food and hopefully not the last! The restaurant staff could not have been more helpful or informative. The next morning we had breakfast in our room. There was more than enough to eat and it was a shame we could not have eaten it on our patio but the weather was far too chilly. Although this was my first overnight stay, I have visited the hotel on two previous occasions for afternoon teas. We will certainly be returning!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor at the rear of the hotel overlooking the gardens. It came with its ow...

Dear Michelle D,

Thank for joining us for a night away and for you rating us so positively!

The team and I are delighted your stay was so enjoyable. Your junior suite sounds just wonderful with stunning views over the grounds and South Downs as well as an amazing bathroom with Aquavision TV.

As you describe, the Pass is quite an extraordinary experience! Set in the very heart of our kitchens this take on the Chef’s table concept is Michelin starred dining at its best.
Once again, we are all delighted you enjoyed your Easter break and it would be a pleasure to see you again in the future.

All the best,

My wife and I visited to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Unfortunately I had a minor fall just after we arrived however 2 members of staff arrived promptly to administer first aid and I quickly recovered and was able to enjoy an excellent meal in The Pass. The staff were very polite and courteous at all times. Our visit was a memorable but not cheap occasion.

Dear AndyandSandy,

Happy anniversary and thank you for staying with us at South Lodge.
I am pleased to hear your fall was not too serious and Joe and I were able to assist you with minor first aid. It is good news that your fall did not impact upon your dinner plans as The Pass is such a memorable experience.

The team and I do very much look forward to welcoming you back to South Lodge in the near future.
