Full Description
South Lodge, an Exclusive Hotel really is the perfect venue for all seasons. In spring we welcome a striking colourful display of rhododendrons. Our outdoor wedding pavilion offers the unique opportunity to marry with the beautiful backdrop of the South Downs in summer months. Set within the 93 acres of parkland, plenty of vibrant colours in the autumn set a theme for your wedding day, and candlelit ceremonies and roaring log fires add to the atmosphere of love and romance when there is a chill in the winter air. With an abundance of rooms to choose from, award-winning dining, bespoke service and a dedicated wedding co-ordinator who understands that it’s the little details that make all the difference, we're poised to plan everything to perfection. Just for you

Great fun was had by all!
We had the most wonderful weekend celebrating our marriage. Great fun was had by all. I am so glad you were able to join us for the ceremony. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you this year. We feel very lucky to have received your professional help and great experience in helping our day to be perfect. Both Cat Liz and the whole team were amazing so please thank them on our behalf. All of our guests also had a truly wonderful time and all said they couldn’t fault the amazing service from the moment they arrived and those who stayed at the Hotel were extremely impressed. Thank you so much once again.

We cannot say enough how amazing our day was!
A huge thank you to Lindsey, Cat and all of the team at South Lodge for making our day so special. From the point of contact we had total faith in you and did you deliver! A few stand out of thanks are deserved for Lindsey and the brilliant coordination and attention to detail. For Cat and everything on the day she did to ease the strain (and what a shift she did), thank you! But also to everyone at South Lodge. Everyone was brilliant, considerate, helpful and nothing was too much. So to all of the team, would you please pass on our thanks for making the day so special. Finally, we cannot say enough how amazing our day was and the memory created will be with us for a long, long time. A huge thanks to you and all of the team.

You made our Day so Special!
We want to say a very big thank you to you and all your staff at the hotel and spa for making our wedding such a very special occasion. The service was faultless, the staff charming and helpful, the food superb. We can not thank you all enough for making it such a special time. All our guests, particularly those that had stayed, all commented on the excellent quality all round. Our stay at the hotel was so comfortable. What was also wonderful was the setting of the breakfast room the next day. Lovely!! Just as a further note, we were so impressed with your masters of ceremony Mark. We could not have done without him. Also please thank Cat who was with us at the end of the evening and breakfast the next day. All your staff were just marvellous. All our guests have given us great feedback about the high quality service!

It was the most amazing day!
We’ve just had a wedding at South Lodge Hotel and it was the most amazing day in the most fantastic venue. Everything went perfectly and we thoroughly enjoyed it. This was in part due to the fantastic staff that work at South Lodge. Their customer service skills are excellent and they ensure everyone is looked after at all times. A special mention has to go to Lindsey and Cat who arranged and organised our wedding to perfection. Lindsey kept us informed with every step of the proceedings from the first meeting until the wedding day and then Cat took over with the organisation on the day and made sure it went seamlessly. Both Lindsey and Cat are a pleasure to work with when planning a wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them. They made sure we had one of the best days of our lives. Many thanks Lindsey for everything you have done for us. We a have a large table booked for NYE and are really looking forward to returning to South Lodge.

We would definitely recommend South Lodge!
Between when we had our first tour of the venue (on my birthday, which they presented a little birthday chocolate when they found out!), and the wedding itself, a year and a half later, we exchanged many emails with our wedding co-ordinator, Lindsey. She was always helpful and made sure that all the details were right for us and we had all the information that we needed to make the day go smoothly. For the wedding itself, everything went very smoothly, thanks to Cat and the staff on the day, as well as our toastmaster Dan. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive to us and the guests. Even hotel staff who were not involved in the wedding made us feel special throughout the few days we were there, knowing who we were when going to reception for example. As we had various things to have setup, such as the cakes, confetti, favours and some decorations, we prepared a list of what should be done and go where, and everything was followed so that we didn’t have to do anything when we arrived. They even caught a mistake we made and put pens out for our table ice breakers for us, which we had forgotten about! Although a small thing, it shows that they are willing to go the extra mile to help. The food was excellent, we had many compliments, and the chefs had gone above and beyond to cater for special dietary requirements – the options for vegetarians and vegans were also much more exciting and creative than some other places would have been! The rooms for people staying the night were also very good, and unique – everyone wanted to look at other people’s rooms to see what they had! We would definitely recommend South Lodge!

Smooth sailing
We condensed our entire wedding planning process into just four months and so made the decision to marry at a venue where we could have the ceremony, reception, and accommodate overnight guests. We toured several venues in the area but Soouth Lodge is head and shoulders above the all - the interiors are beubeautiful, the grounds stunning, and the spa is simply the icing on the cake. Our wedding planner, Emilia, was very patient with us even when things got stressful, and on the day Cat and Toastmaster Dan made everything ran perfectly - I didn't have to worry about a thing nothing was too much trouble.
