Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We stumbled across the hotel quite by accident 
– oh, serendipity! We plan to return.’ Newcomers this year to the Hine family’s ‘gracious’ pink brick Queen Anne coaching inn join a loyal following, with praise for its ‘old-fashioned values, excellent food and attentive staff’. Another reader in 2018 lauded the ‘beautifully maintained and furnished interiors’.Now in her fifth decade at the helm, Baba Hine, with son Giles, is a ‘benign presence’. ‘The Edwardian decor is wonderfully quirky. Our generously proportioned bedroom had a comfortable king-size bed, pleasant sitting area, large bathroom and French doors leading to a large terrace.’ All the rooms have leaf teas, ‘proper coffee’, shortbread, fruit and fresh milk; most enjoy leafy views. Dine in the bistro overlooking a sweeping willow, or in the restaurant where long-standing chef Martin Kinahan cooks ‘outstanding’ dishes; perhaps ‘melt-in-the-mouth venison’, or globe artichoke with wild mushrooms off the vegan menu. ‘The cheese trolley was superb.’ A ‘near-perfect’ breakfast includes home-made muesli, ‘deftly cooked’ sausages. ‘They sent us on our way happy and delightfully replete.’ (Brian Griffiths, and others)

Guest comments

'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
'Oh serendipity! We ate an outstanding dinner with very good and inexpensive wine from a well balanced list. Next morning the breakfast was deftly cooked. The furniture was mainly Edwardian and thirties, wonderfully quirky. Our bedroom had a large adjacent sitting room, a large bathroom, a comfortable kingsize bed and two French doors leading to a large balcony/terrace, which was above the (quiet) bar. The owner (Baba Hines) had an eagle eye on absolutely everything and the staff could not have responded better: they were friendly and attentive at all times. . ' - Brian Griffiths - September, 2017
'A gracious hotel with excellent food and attentive staff. ' - John Barnes - May, 2017
'We have stayed in many hotels, and regard this a one of the best. So reliable and comfortable that this was our third visit. ' - Robert and Janet Greenhill - September, 2016
'Our favourite watering hole. Staff is uniformly efficient and friendly, but not intrusive. Our large room had a comfortable bed, windows on three sides, large bathroom but not enough shelf space, as usual. Downstairs, the front of the house is a lounge. Off this is a pleasant bar and bistro (where the restaurant menu is available). At the other end, the restaurant is an L-shaped room with access to a terrace, serves a short interesting TdH menu and quite a long alc. A very interesting cheese trolley. Excellent service here and in the bistro. ' - LM Mayer-Jones - September, 2016
'A nice country feel despite the busy road. Upgrading of the bedrooms has not affected the ‘time-warp feel’ of the place. Its décor will not appeal to those in search of ‘designer’ style. We liked the ‘old-fashioned’ values: no piped music, leaf tea, no littles jars of jam, no packaged butter at breakfast. ‘Gilles Champier, the manager for 15 years, was always about, taking orders and serving at dinner and breakfast. ' - CR - February, 2016
