We enjoyed the peace and quiet.The beds were comfortable including pillows!Bar and restaurant service friendly.Good location for visiting many scenic places nearby.Fresh grilled mackerel for dinner was very tasty.
No signage on the road from Lymington.South Lawns hotel 100yards on the left would be helpful.Big pit in gravel at entrance to drive.Room service menu could be clearer about tray charge and when available.
My husband was taken ill and needed an ambulance, the night duty staff was excellent and cannot be faulted.Until that moment we had had a lovely time.
The food was beautifully cooked and presented but portions were very small .for an adult
In general the staff were polite and helpful. The manager on duty was excellent the tiolet had a great view
It was a little tatty in places and needs a refurbishment
If you would like to stay in an charming English family hotel. Then this is great. My German and Polish friends loved the hotel.
Comfortable room & peaceful countryside setting. We were the youngest ones there!!
Could have had more teabags, sugar, milk etc in the room & a bar menu wasn't available.
Lovely setting, very quiet surroundings, no traffic noise, close to the beach (driving) where there was plenty of parking.
Bathroom needed refurbishing, kept very clean but cracked hand basin, dripping tap over the bath, generally in need of updating but this did not spoil our stay and is not a complaint merely an observation.
Quiet relaxing location. Very clean and comfortable.
Bar was closed when we returned to the hotel at 10.35 (advertised closing time 11.00) and would have liked a drink.
South Lawn Hotel was a friendly, clean place with excellent facilites for us as a young family of four. The cot and 3rd bed were all made up for us on arrival, allowing us to unpack and meet with family immediately. The rooms facilities were what we would expect, including towels provided for the children with out having to ask. The Breakfast selection catered for all tastes. A highchair and extra chair was provided instantly with no fuss. We would have stayed an extra night if we could have!
The only down side was the temperature in the bedroom. It was a hot week anyway but perhaps air con or fans could be provided in the event of hot weather.
Comfortable bedrooms with good facilities. Pleasant gardens. Dated decor, but to the extent that it may almost be described as pleasantly retro.
Limited dinner menu, and one that might have been presented 30 to 40 years ago. The hotel might benefit from having a buffet style breakfast to limit delays at peak times.
It was just what my sister and I needed to relax and explore the area. Staff were very helpful and the breakfast, especially the scrambled eggs was delicious. Thank you very much Ros Skinner
Only comment...the pillows, we both thought they could be a lot better, more comfortable.
The Hotel is set between the sea and the New Forest. Ideal for both and in striking distance to Portsmouith, Southampton and thge Isle of Wight. So location for us was perfect. We have been before and like the food and the spaciousness of room restaurant and lounges / bar. Staff are attentive and efficient and friendly. The evening food at the hotel is very good, but perhaps could be a little more exciting, but I have no complaint about breakfast which caters for all tastes.
Please get the coffee sorted
Spaciuos room and well fitted. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff Plenty of car parking. Hotel set well back from road in spacious grounds adjoining farmland.
The over bright emergency light in the room
Did not like it at all
The bed in our room was absolutely dreadful the mattress moved on a constant basis the springs were so bad. We got no sleep at all, the people in the next room had their tv playing very loudly until 2 a.m. and we were not getting any sleep so we left then.
It was a very friendly and accomodating hotel. A very relaxed atmosphere, and I had no concerns about the way my dog was accepted.
Good size bedrooms and pleasant lounge area. Bar food very reaonablely price and god quality.
Some windows need attention as do the cobwebs. Green light in emergency lighting bright enough to see without any emergency lighting, to bright for sleeping comfort.
