Dog and child friendly hotel. It seemed very popular with walkers as there was a couple of groups staying. One slight niggle with the room was that there wasn't a tray or plate to put your teaspoon after brewing. It had to be put on top of the drawer unit. The drawer unit could do with a glass top as...

Having stayed at this hotel in the past we found that the new owners have changed the hotel to one that caters more for dog owners. We have nothing against dogs but found it strange that on a busy evening in the restaurant we had to wait for a table even though the doggie part of the restaurant was virtually...

Firstly and very importantly I see that your review is for your stay in September last year which is over six months ago and prior to the completion of our bedroom refurbishment, your room observations are therefore unfairly out of date. There is not a room in the hotel that doesn't have brand new curtains! To address your other points:...

My new husband and I got married at South Lawn hotel on Easter Weekend. We chose the hotel based on the Amazing Wedding Package Nikki and Tim offered, which contained everything we wanted. We arranged the wedding prior to the hotel refurbishment, and when we finally got to see the rooms, we were very pleased with the modern and pretty...

It is a lovely hotel. Our rooms were clean, both were big and well equipped with ironing board and irons, normal tea and coffee making. The bed was very comfortable and with good quality bed linen. The showers were great. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good and very reasonably...

We booked this for a first trip away with our puppy and it was excellent. The property is bigger and cleaner than expected. For saying they have dog friendly rooms, you would have never known! They were that clean! The land around etc was very well cared for. Would and will definitely stay again.

We stayed for one night on our way to the Isle of Wight. We were made to feel very welcome and our dog even got her own welcome pack. Plenty of outside space to exercise our dog and we even had a 'doggy' section of the restaurant for breakfast. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a great 2 nights in the hotel recently. The staff were so obliging and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was large and having been recently refurbished was clean, bright and very comfortable. We didn't realise it was a dog friendly hotel when we booked but can honestly say there were no problems or noise with them....
