Two nights of delicious meals beautifully presented. Excellent newly refurbished hotel, and the staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly. It would also be perfect for a wedding reception, and facilities appear excellent for business courses.

we have known Astley Bank for some years but hadn't had a meal there in the last 12 months. We booked a Sunday lunch to celebrate my parents anniversary.

Save yourself for dinner and...

Access to the hotel is pretty poor up a winding lane. First impressions are good with nice grounds. A good sized car park and close to the main entrance. The room was clean and tidy, but fine detail and finishing touches should be better for a hotel in this price bracket. As a couple, we would have expected 2 large...
