My family organised a surprise stay at South Lodge for the night of my wedding on Saturday 4th July. Unfortunately it was not the experience I was expecting it to be. Although my mother in law had payed and left the credit card details, they insisted me and my husband made payment instead. Unfortunately we were then aware of the...

My friend and I had a celebratory afternoon tea at southlodge together. The afternoon tea is lovely and the food delicious. The only disappointment was the attentiveness of the staff. Once sat down We had to wait 20 minutes and no one had come to ask if we wanted a drink so I had to go and find someone. They...

Came here for a business conference. Exquisite views! Rooms are huge and very comfortable. Staff are very friendly. Food was quite good, chef prepares meals with a flair! Winston Churchill had stayed here a few times. Staff are not too knowledgeable about the history of the hotel. Grounds are huge, but kept up very nicely!

We were at the hotel to celebrate a wedding. The ambience and the service were excellent and the food and arrangement s for the wedding were superb. However, there were a number of caveats. First, check in at 3.00 p.m. is very late and one can spend time waiting for a room to be ready. Secondly, the hotel adds a...

We visited for lunch on Saturday, the food and location was excellent and a lovely experience for family. Having tried other places of similar style and price point, South Lodge is let down slightly by the customer attention to detail during service, our main course arrived and wasn't correct, they took it away but left the other dishes at the...

We stayed for one night, whilst visiting friends. Unfortunately, our room wasn't ready when we arrived about 2pm, so we had to change for afternoon tea in the toilets which wasn't ideal. Afternoon tea was traditional and well executed. Our room was lovely, spacious, but could have been cleaner. There were a few cobwebs and I think that the previous...

Visited South Lodge to attend a wedding. Everything was just so right. Place, staff and food were perfect. The bedrooms are large, spotless and have the most comfortable beds. The grounds are large and with a big private car park the hotel is ideal for guests from near and far.
