Thank You South Lodge
A massive Thank You to Jen and the Banqueting Team at South Lodge who did a brill job on the day of our Wedding 24th Aug 2012 The service from the staff at our Wedding Breakfast was absolutely spot on they were very attentive, polite and professional. Potentially a Costly Venue but worth every single penny for the service and style they have there. Want to return every year..

My husband & I had our wedding at South Lodge on August 12th 2012. The venue was absolutely gorgeous, with great views across the South Downs, making it a brilliant location for our big day! The service provided was also good and all the staff were really friendly and helpful, with everything running smoothly on the day. A particular highlight was the food tasting, which was great fun although it was difficult to agree on the menu as there were so many tasty options!

We had our wedding at South Lodge in May, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. The support leading up to the wedding was outstanding, thank you so much Jen. Even though we were based overseas you put our minds at ease and we were confident everything would be perfect on the day. The food was superb, the service was impeccable and the venue and rooms were stunning. A special thank you to our Toastmaster Peter for being so attentive and for making our day run smoothly and to Chef Johnny for the remarkable food throughout. Thanks to everyone at South Lodge for making it such a special and memorable weekend for us and all our guests.

Dear Cassie and all the staff at South Lodge, Thank you for making our day so special. To Cassie- Throughout all the wedding planning you was quick to respond to any queries we had and were most helpful along with all your support leading up to the big day. The staff were always helpful and polite when ever we visited South Lodge on numerous occasions and the service we received was fantastic. We would also like to thank Mark the toastmaster for his great sense of humour and attention to detail. To the chef- The food was the best we have ever had! You cannot fault this venue along with the staff and the surroundings of South Lodge are beautiful. A number of our guests have complimented on how stunning the venue is. Once again we cannot thank Cassie enough for all her help and we look forward to visiting South Lodge every year!

My daughter and son-in-law recently held their wedding here and several guests also stayed overnight. Everything was wonderful, even the weather was kind to us! The staff were always extremely polite and helpful in every way. Our rooms were lovely and very well equipped. I cannot fault the food and the waiting staff at the wedding breakfast were very attentive and patient. I am a vegetarian and had one of the nicest meals Ive ever eaten, my other daughter is also a vegetarian and wasnt too happy with her meal, but without any hesitation the staff offered her an alternative meal which she thoroughly enjoyed! Cassie, your wedding co-ordinator was wonderful and the Toastmaster also did his job admirably!There was plenty of choice for breakfast in the morning and once again, the staff were very attentive and very pleasant. South Lodge is a beautiful hotel in beautiful surroundings and our families and friends have said that it was one of the loveliest weddings they had been to and that, is in part, due to the hotel and its staff for helping to make our day so special, we were extremely impressed, thank you.

Can't praise South Lodge enough, everyone of the team worked so hard to make our daughters wedding day so very special. Special thanks to Jen, without her i would have been a wreck, and to Chris and Graham who catered to our every need from start to end! Bianca on reception was a great help also. The wedding breakfast was outstanding, in fact there is nothing negative i can say about South Lodge and it's staff. I can assure anyone who books this venue will not be disappointed.

Dear Jen Thank you so much for providing Gemma and Lee with the most stunning wedding ever. Your attention to detail was excellent and the whole experience for all guests was outstanding. Dominic, the Head Sommelier, gave great advice for our choice of wines, Chef provided a sumptuous wedding breakfast and Mark co-ordinated the wedding party in a friendly, organised manner. Gemma and Lee looked so beautiful and happy in such a perfect setting. The staff were brilliant in attending to our every need - we were all truly spoilt at South Lodge. Best Wishes Paul and Ann
