Called in on the off-chance today for Sunday Lunch. We had not previously booked and, judging by the number of cars in the carpark, we wondered if there were any tables available. However were met by friendly and helpful staff and shown to a cosy table in the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which was beautifully cooked and served....

We had a lovely break over New Year. Our room was large and very comfortable. The staff could not have been more helpful and it was especially good that our dog was with us all the time. The New Year dinner and disco was great fun and the meal delicious AND amazingly every course was piping hot, rare indeed. The...

Food was excellent, both evening meals and breakfasts. Stayed for 3 nights and wished it was longer. Very comfortable public lounges & a nice bar selling excellent real ales,...

Just returned from the South Lawn hotel today. Lovely hotel, food, grounds and the staff were so welcoming and accomodating to us and our dog. We will definately return. Our dog received a dog bowl, bags, ball and treats with a little note from the hotel dog which was a lovely touch. The rooms were big and newly decorated. Can't...

10 of us stayed in 6 rooms from 27-30 December. What a marvellous improvement from a previous stay 2 years ago. It was fine then, but now that rooms and public spaces have all been refurbished with great attention to detail it is excellent. Our room was comfortable, a really good size with two chairs and a table to sit...

Attended a group luncheon on Sunday 20/11/16 - 26 of us in total over two round tables in a private room. That morning there had been a power cut but fortunately they cooked on gas not electric, so food wasn't affected. Heating and lighting wasn't on when we arrived but the staff were so apologetic and everyone worked hard to...

Big thank you to the lovely staff (especially Nikki) at South Lawn Hotel. We stayed 3 nights over Christmas whilst visiting family near by. The location is excellent to the sea and New Forest. The refurbished room large, well equipped/furnished and we loved the big walk-in shower. The breakfast was excellent and we were only sorry we couldn't do it...

We stay in the New Forest area frequently and visit other hotels as well as South Lawn. This is the first visit since the hotel has changed hands. The rooms were rather tired and dated looking before the change of ownership and have since been redecorated. The bathrooms badly needed updating and ours was so much better than before. The...
