“Fantastic resort, will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012

Stayed here for 1 night as part of a spa break package. Greeted at reception by a very friendly and welcoming lady, who showed us around the resort and where our room was, she then handed us over to the leisure reception who were equally friendly and welcoming. The lady there showed us around all the leisure facilities and got us ready for our spa treatments, the ladies in the spa were excellent at all the treatments that we had, made us feel at ease and just relaxed and enjoyed. All staff we met and saw around the hotel were very polite and always acknowledged you.
We had dinner at the lodge and again, very friendly and efficient staff. The meals were very tasty, if a little small (Nouvelle cuisine style) would advise ordering sides with the meals!
Breakfast was probably one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had in a hotel.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again and will be recommending others to do so, my boyfriend had a fantastic birthday here which was made by all the staff at the hotel. Thank you very much.

We were married at the Ardencote on Friday the 13th and true to tradition Friday the 13th turned out to be an old wives tale. The wedding was conducted in a very pleasent manner and the setting by the lake was perfect. The swans had been preaned and the fish polished. The Wedding Breakfast was staged in the Lodge resturant, where the staff were professional but yet discreet. Every one was so freindly, even the gardener in his golf cart stopped to say hello! The roast sirloin of beef was delicious, and the deserts were fantastic. Azar(?) looked after us very well. The bridal suite over looked the lake and was the perfect end to a perfect day. Whay-hay!

Have stayed here many times for conferences. A bit quirky, but always friendly with surprisingly good food. Bedrooms in the newer block are generally of a higher standard; that said the older rooms are also fine.

Stayed June 2012, travelled on business

Very average hotel, I didnt use the spa so really cant comment on that part. The bedrooms are very average and could do with a bit of decorating. The rooms however were clean and tidy. The worst part about the stay was the reception staff - one in particular was unbelievably rude. I couldn't really believe how bad her attitude was to me and it certainly wasnt just me other people who were in our group did comment about how rude she was and how she didnt particularly care.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I would like to take this opportunity to advise that the Ardencote Manor Hotel has a continuous refurbishment programme in place and all of the bedrooms have either been redecorated in the last 2 years or built from new in the last 3 years. The decor has been kept very traditional, so that it is in keeping with the Victorian Manor House.

Yours sincerely

This is a lovely setting for company meetings or a relaxing weekend away, however, the decor and general upkeep of the rooms could do with some attention.
