Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests can eat and drink alfresco at the Hine family's hotel, a Queen Anne-style mansion overlooking a willow-draped duck pond in a rural hamlet. In the same ownership for more than 40 years, it is run today by Baba Hine and inspires fierce loyalty among our readers. ‘Love this place for its comfort, food, ambience and terrific staff,’ reads a typical report this year. The look is slightly dated – one trusted reader called it ‘dowdy’; fans prefer ‘traditional’. But there are ‘really spacious bedrooms with fresh milk for tea- and coffee-making, fresh fruit and delicious home-made shortbread’. They have period furniture and walls painted in shades of peach, pink, lavender, sienna . . . One suite has a carved four-poster and separate sitting room. Even standard rooms are a good size. A pool and tennis court are big pluses. In the restaurant and bistro, chef Chris Exley’s varied menus include dishes such as Cornish lobster and loin of local muntjac with cherry jus. ‘This hotel in the spring-green countryside is special: Baba Hine and her team have a winning formula that never ceases to delight.’ (JG and PL, and others)

Comments about Corse Lawn House

We've been visiting Corse Lawn House annually for the last 18 years. It is lovely as ever. The welcome is warm, the service attentive but not obsequious. This is a very comfortable, traditional, but not overly forma,hotel. The new chef Chris Monk has created a zingy new menu while keeping to their fundamental principle of producing excellent food at affordable prices, with a great wine list. Baba Hines and her team have a winning formula that never ceases to delight - Joanna Gibbon and Paul Lindsell - May 2019
Love this place for its comfort, food, ambience and terrific staff. I even had my 70th birthday here and everything was just perfect! - Dot Hayes - January 2022
