Its all in the little details
We have stayed at many the Europe's best quality hotels and almost always in a suite. This one (we stayed in a junior suite) was good - not the best - but by no means the worst we have stayed in. The room was large the bathroom excellent and most of the extra touches very well done. I had mentioned to the staff at the hotel that it would be my wife's and I anniversary, and they very kindly left us some chocolates and a card which was nice. The main Al la carte restaurant was pretty good and not as formal as some I have been to (you don't need to were a tie and jacket for example). Some people may find this good, other not so. Strangely I thought the room service menu was much better than the Al La Carte one but that is just a persona thing. Both was very good. However, as with all quality hotels, it is the little things that make or break such establishments. Two things let our stay down a little (and you could say I am being picky but when you spend £220 a night I think you are allowed to be). Firstly, I should point out that on both mornings we had breakfast delivered to our room. On the first day, the saucers had clearly not been washed (they had a large tea or coffee ring around them). So not a great start, on the second day our breakfast order was so wrong it almost became funny. What we ordered one of - we got two and what we ordered two of - we got one. I addition we were not given any cutlery. That said, the hotel was very good on almost every other aspect - would I go again - maybe, although we have found better (and actually cheaper) hotels for this end of the market in the Uk. I wouldn't rule it out though. My only real criticism was - you need to make sure the little things are well looked after as well as the more obvious.

Lovely Sussex Retreat
This isn't the kind of place we would usually go for a night away but we wanted somewhere a bit special for our anniversary. The staff could not have been more friendly or attentive and the food at diinner was really excellent. Breakfast was good too but probably overpriced at £21 each unless you hadn't had a big diinner the night before! Our room was large and very comfy albeit in the new part of the hotel. If we had thought about it we would have asked to stay in a more traditional room even if it was smaller. The grounds are very nice but there isn't a lot to do so it may not suit for longer stays. Drinks are pricey but that's probably to be expected. Overall, a lovely hotel.

An excellent experience on all counts
Suffice it to say that we had an excellent experience at South Lodge Hotel. Service, food and accommodation all surpassed our expectations. Whilst we had time only for one night’s stay, our batteries were sufficiently recharged to make us feel as though we had just enjoyed a week’s holiday. We enjoyed it so much that we shall certainly be returning to South Lodge as soon as we possibly can.

Nice Hotel for a special occasion
South Lodge is a beautiful Hotel in a great location. The house has been converted to a very high standard and the rooms are spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated with great ambience. The Hotel staff were friendly reception particularly so. We didn't eat there as we had a wedding to go to, but the food at breakfast was excellent. The bar prices are on the expensive side. The Hotel has plans for a Spa and when this is added to their facilities it will be a great place to stay for a weekend.
