We have just returned from the most wonderful visit to South Lawns. Just can’t believe the attention to detail, even a welcoming doggy bag for our Chester on arrival. The service was impeccable and the rooms so clean and comfortable. Best nights sleep for ages!!! Honestly, one of the nicest hotels we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Thank you everyone involved in making our visit so memorable. Ian, Jackie & Chester

Nice hotel, warm greeting on arrival. The room was very spacious and comfortable, however, no USB port was disappointing. The restaurant was very nice for dinner and breakfast, however, the menu was limited. Moretti beer on tap was excellent and a nice lawn area to sit in as the weather was great.

We had a very enjoyable 2 night stay at the hotel. It was very well located and there was plenty of parking. The staff were friendly and welcoming and our room was very spacious and clean with a good shower and plenty of hot water. The fridge was a bonus. We really enjoyed the breakfast, both the buffet and the hot choices which were very good and the waiting staff were friendly and efficient. We did not eat in the restaurant so can't comment on the food. We would definitely stay here if visiting the New Forest again.
