“Wedding 3 September 2011!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

Sorry this is a late review but we just wanted to leave a comment on how fantastic this hotel is and how helpful the staff and owners are (Brett and Jo). From the 1st time we met Brett and Jo they couldn't have been more helpful, the service we received throughout was fantastic. The food was brilliant, we had a sit down, three course meal for 70 people with two different choices of each and the staff worked so well to bring it out really quickly - no table was left waiting while others were finishing. Everyone commented on how nice and well presented the food was. The hotel had recently been refurbished and they have done an exceptionally good job, the rooms were clean, modern and we could not fault them. To Brett, Jo and the staff, we wish you all the best for the future and thank you for making our day so special.

After looking at many hotels to host our ceremony and after party, we chose Lincombe Hall Hotel, we couldn't o chosen better,the one to one service we had from Jo and Brett (Owners)right from the planning up until the following day was exceptional.
We had 60 guests many who had traveled from all over the country were made to feel very welcome and were looked after superbly which really eased the stress for us.
David the manager couldn't of done a better job he was very professional not to mention caring,he along with Jo and Brett and all of the waiting and bar staff really made our day stress free, the whole day went without a single hitch.
We went for a sit down 3 course meal and it was really top notch, the complements are still coming now.
As for the hotel and grounds these are what make it a really special place to hold a ceremony or indeed any party or holiday.
We will never forget our day which was truly perfect and this is all down to the personal and special touches that Lincombe Hall Hotel give their guests.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are really pleased that everyone who came to your special occasion, and especially you and Sean, had a fabulous day. All the staff really enjoyed the day and it was great for us to hold the ceremony in our Woodfield Suite as it looked fantastic and has convinced us to obtain a Wedding Licence. We will pass on your fabulous comments to our team and wish you both a wonderful 25 more years together.

The Lincombe is quite a surprise ... Less that 400mtrs from the Harbour you find yourself in beautiful woodland setting with a well thought out combination of buildings giving a hotel of quite a high standard.. The gardens were delightful giving an option to relax with drink , or a cool off in a lovely( warm ) outdoor pool. The lounges were warm and inviting , with the chance to enjoy the entertainment ,or just have a chat with a very friendly set of guests!
We stayed in a Gold room which gave us a view of the gardens, pool and beyond , It was spacious , clean and cosy . with just the right amount of period furnishings .
The restaurant again another successful venture with the terrace below the front tables a pretty setting for dinner or breakfast. The meals were varied , not all of our choice, but we ate well and the fish was superb on the Friday evening.
No review i complete unless there is a mention of the staff... In this instance they were impecable ..It was our first visit and their help and courteous nature made us feel verycomfortable thro our stay!
Good luck all at Lincombe .. see you soon!

My Wife and I have just returned from a 2-day stay at Lincombe Hall where we joined with friends who live locally, and chose the venue for their wedding vow renewal celebrations. Now, when local people choose a venue for such an important event - especially in an area with such a vast amount of hotels - you can pretty much guarantee that they have done their homework, shopped around, asked a lot of questions and have looked at a lot of alternatives before making the important decision. I can see why they chose Lincombe Hall Hotel. Checking into a hotel is usually a formality; You say your name, they find your room, give you a key, tell you where your room is and off you go to become part of the furniture for a while. Not here. I had never set a foot in Lincombe Hall before but the Receptionist made us feel as if we were returning home, the Manager, David, walked from behind the bar and stood to welcome us personally as the Receptionist walked with us to give perfect directions to our room. What a perfect and heart-warming welcome.

We stayed in a gold room (7) which is beautiful. Massive windows, excellent bathroom and shower facilities and a bed that matches the ones at the Sofitel group of Hotels for comfort. The added bonus in this room is the free WIFI connection is at full strength so grab this one if you need to check your facebook!!...An earlier review mentions the floorboards squeaking a bit...So what?..It's not a new-build and if you don't like character and beautiful period decor, find a premier inn. So that's a five star for the hotel from me so far and i wil definitely return. Now onto the reason we were there in the first place;

If you are looking for places to organise and run an important event, be it 'hatches' 'matches' or 'dispatches', look no further than Lincombe Hall Hotel. I always give my honest opinion on Tripadvisor and i am sure that if you check my previous reviews you will see this to be true. The efficiency of the waiting staff, the running of the event by the Management, the food, the evening buffet, the entertainment and even a very busy bar was, in a word 'perfection'. I was absolutely astonished by the professionalism and efficiency of the entire event that I found the owners - who actually pull their sleeves up to ensure that everything runs smoothly - and congratulated them personally.

I have come away from Lincombe Hall and the first thing i did this morning was check my diary to find a weekend that I can return.

Not sure what to say other than thank you for your wonderful comments and that we are pleased you had such a lovely time and were made to feel so welcome by David and the rest of the team. It was lovely to speak with you and your wife on the Saturday night - the whole celebration was fabulous and we very much enjoyed hosting it at our hotel. We hope to see you again and that Lincombe Hall will become a regular for you.
