Booked the taster spa for two to celebrate my daughters birthday. Can't fault the spa and we had a relaxing time. We were however disappointed with the restaurant/meal which was part of the deal. The room lacked any atmosphere and music so quiet you could here people eating on the nearby tables. After receiving our complimentary prosecco everything was a wait of around 20 mins or more. No sign of anyone to ask for another drink and a jug of water. Many other people were asking where their food was etc.. just a waiting game for everything which was very annoying. A choice of around 4 desserts, 2 of which were not available... ran out of pizzas which were clearly a popular choice as the menu is rather strange. Finally received a small glass of warm wine which wasn't sauvignon as they have also ran out of that! And to top it off.. £11 for a 175ml glass of wine.. really!? Goodness knows how they manage at the weekend or when busy as only 5 tables occupied and ourselves so no excuse for poor slow service.. or running out of so many things.

The hotel room was clean but characterless. There was no offer of help with our luggage to our hotel room which was located on the top floor of the Manor. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was adequate but no safety mat for the floor of the shower. The dinner was poor. The wine that we requested was not available and all other wine was very expensive. The staff were young and although polite certainly did have the knowledge. The lamb was good but the poached chicken was bland and served with lots of dry boiled potatoes. Breakfast was very good and tasty.

We had our wedding book June 2020 but with covid had to be rearranged, Stanley house was really helpful but then unfortunately we had to rearranged once again in May 2021! We then booked for Sept 2022 and it was definitely worth the wait! The staff have been amazing helping us make it perfect! The venue looked absolutely stunning!

Just on our way back from a fantastic night away at the Stanley House hotel and Spa. This place is amazing and the staff just can't do enough for you. We had room 5 in the manor house with all original features which was lovely, plus had everything you needed and the little Molton Brown touches where perfect. When we arrived we booked in for the spa which was £10 each. We had complementary robes and slippers in our room to use for the spa which was nice. The spa did not disappoint, was quiet with only a few in there. The thermal rooms where good finished off with the ice shower! Shout out to Andrea for getting my husband a beer from the main bar as they only did prosecco in the spa, that was enjoyed on the terrace in the sun so thank you very much. We ordered for our breakfast to be delivered to our room at 9.30am and came bang on time with everything perfect. We will be back and highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a lovely relaxing break with that 5 star touch then this is your place. Can not wait to come back, thank you all the staff for making it amazing.

Lovely county house style accommodation with a modern twist. High end rooms well equipped and a beautiful spa which is one of the best I've experienced. Nothing much around the place if you want food out though. Couple of downfalls. No proper bar here only a small one in the resteraunt. No draft beer etc only bottles which is annoying for such a nice hotel. Very limited bar. Great breakfast. Would visit again!

Beautiful hotel and grounds with fantastic views. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We were there for the day for friends ruby wedding and decided to spend the day in the spa, prior to the anniversary party. Sadly that’s where it went wrong. There was a mix up with the booking so we didn’t get the spa package and therefore lost out on inclusive lunch. The treatments, though lovely were madly expensive @ £85 for a massage! The thermal spa is lovely but way too small for the numbers they put through. You get a 2hour slot and as we were shown round and advised the thermal beds were included in our package, the beds were all taken. All four of them! At one point there were 11 people in the spa and 4 beds. No chairs. Nowhere else to sit / lie. The whole thing felt very rushed and I feel very expensive for what we got. We had a lovely lunch in the brassiere but had to get back for our 2hr spa session before we had really finished. A lovely hotel , in gorgeous surroundings but an expensive spa and very expensive drinks at the bar. I wouldn’t go again, certainly not on a weekend.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Great spa, small but nice staff. Husband and I had a few treatments and enjoyed the facilities. Due to COVID you could only have very limited use of the pool and steam room facilities. Would have preferred more access as residents. First night in restaurant was fine and got chatting to a couple on a neighbouring table. If we had not been conversing with the other couple the restaurant was lacking in atmosphere. Chips are divine BTW! Due to staff shortages the menu was very limited. We tried to eat there a pnother night but were told kitchen staff had finished and this was at 8.30pm! Not hot food. Put a bit of a dampener on the stay. Rooms are okay. Not luxury but adequate and clean. There was a wedding also and in the early part of our stay that seemed to consume much of the staff.

Thank you for your feedback. We do only allow a maximum of 12 people in the thermal bathing suite at once, as we are a boutique spa. This is for the comfort of our guests. All customer feedback is taken extremely seriously, as without it we would be unable to continue to provide and improve upon the service that we deliver.

visited Stanley House Spa during the week on a special offer , which included lunch and 2 hours in the spa. First impressions matter and I was overwhelmed by the beautiful setting of this luxury hotel. The staff showed me to a table overlooking the garden. The food was excellent, served quickly, and all of it was delicious. I have two courses with this offer, and did not expect to receive such fantastic food, and will be booking directly with the restaurant for a visit in the near future. I was then directed to the spa across the garden. In the spa I was given a warm welcome and showed to the changing rooms, a dressing gown and flip flops were provided. The locker had already been explained to me, and I placed my items in the secure locker. The staff returned and escorted me to the lounge and I was offered various drinks while completing the necessary documents. Once this was completed, I was then shown the spar and given details for each room's benefits to your skin and health. I was advised that she would return to collect me in two hours. I used each room, showers, the large jacuzzi and the warm beds. Each room was unique and totally beneficial to me and I left the spa feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. The views from the windows were incredible. Can’t wait to return. Thank you to all the staff for the service I received at Stanley Hotel and Spa. What a wonderful place.
