We've stayed in a few hotels of this sort of size, many of them really good. The difference with Aylestone Court is Jo and Michael, who really give this place a heart that makes you want to come back......as we definitely do. Right from the initial greet, you have a realy sense that they enjoy what they do, which is running this stunning period hotel, just as well as they possibly can. We were greeted almost every time we got in, with an offer of tea, and a real interest is what we'd been up to. There was plenty of local advice, and ideas for us for our three days stay in Herefordshire.
Our room was large and comfortable, with a great view over the city to the cathedral. The breakfasts were really amazing, with everything you could want for a hotel of this size. We were greeted on arrival with a 'cake jar', which made a real change from the sachets of biscuits you so often find. The cake was home made lemon drizzle; I was immediately won over!!
You get a sense that this hotel is work in progress. It's an old building, and will need some tender loving care in the future. You have as real sense that Jo and Michael will provide it. We hope to return. Herefordshire is an amazig county; Hereford is a beautiful city; Aylestone Court is a very good hotel.More
