friendly, welcoming hotel

Posted 02-Sep-2014
Pros: nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
Cons: decor is a little outdated
Location: near sea
Lovely stay, a change of plan meant hubby and dog joined me unexpectedly for final night. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and went over and above what I would or could have hoped for. I will definitely be returning.

Comfortable stay

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: We've had bigger breakfasts, half a small slice of black pudding is a bit extreme! Would be worth improving Wifi throughout.
Location: Good access to the coast from Lymington to Bournemouth. Good choices for food in Milford.
Quite a small hotel with comfortable facilities if a slightly dated feel although that was not really a problem. Dog friendly. Although the room information said that Wifi was not available, the room we had (no 2) was close enough to the router to be able to pick up and others on that side of the hotel might be able to as well.

Good short break

Posted 01-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
Had 2 night break here when the weather was hot and sunny. Room comfortable and clean but warm although small fan was provided.Good breakfast and friendly staff. Hotel decor dated in public areas and lots of ground to have a pool!

Tired hotel as were the staff, no fresh fruit for breakfast, soft old beds - desperate for a make over!

Quiet and Comfortable Hotel in ideal Location

Posted 29-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
We had a stop-over at the South Lawn while visiting friends who were vacationing nearby. Excellent night's sleep, comfortable beds, no noise, very clean. Other reviews are right that the decor is dated and the exterior needs a coat of paint but who cares? It was just the job for us.

Good budget hotel

Posted 25-Jun-2014
Pros: Staff in particular were very good.
Modest price matched by modest facilities. Room was clean. Choice of ensuite or shared facilities. Breakfast minimal continental, just croissants, yoghurt and fruit. Staff very freindly and good Thai food is available from the bar.

Lovely grounds and character property

Posted 15-Jun-2014
Pros: Rooms were big and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The hotel has character, not minimalist and dull
Cons: Decor is tired and bathrooms could do with updating. although functional.
Location: Location is just outside village of Milford on Sea, walking distance - variety of pubs to eat in, recommend 'Smugglers'. Short drive to great beaches
Overall a good experience,the staff were friendly and helpful and the weather good..

Pros: Tranquil and relaxing
Location: New forest on your doorstep coastline and walks plenty of shops in Lymington
Hotel bit dated but clean haven't seen avocado bathsuite for long time! But refreshingly relaxed and big rooms, attentive service and good food, took me back 30 yesrs and pleasantly surprised grounds hotel nestling in. No wifi but for get away perfect! Take time out and no hurry venue.
