“Good, but some small dissapointments..”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Lovely grounds and a very characteristic building, but I agree with some of the previous reviews in that the gardens would look much more attractive with some colour, especially at this time of year. Overall service was good (especially the South African lady at dinner), however it did have its shoddy moments, which you don't expect in a hotel of this standard. Food was also good but dinner was overpriced. Why have a set price for a menu if half of the courses have supplements? (not just one or two, e.g fois gras etc) The spa was great and the massage was amazing, all credit to the staff there. The nightly rate for this hotel is very expensive and had we not benefited from a special offer then we would have been disappointed.

The service is very friendly but slightly chaotic, the rooms are dated c. 1980s - we were in bonsoir. Food was good enough but nothing to write home about. Doesn't meet the standards of other top countryside hotels like lucknam park, Barnsley house or lime wood for example. Needs a major refurb and new management. The house itself is mighty impressive and the grounds are great for walking but not much in the way of flowers. Give it a try but don't expect too much.

1 LOCATION: If you have a sat nav, the hotel is very easy to find. It is located deep in the country side, in a quiet and rural area. 2 BUILDING: What an amazing house. It looks great and it is in very good condition. 3 WELCOME: Good welcome. The service is good. 4 ROOMS: Slight disapointment. I was expecting much better decorated rooms. Once you are in your room, you could be in an average countryside hotel. 5 BATHROOM: Same as for the room 6: DINNER: Very good food. A bit pricey! 7 OVERALL: I would have loved to give this hotel a 5 stars, however; they wanted to charge me £15 for a baby cot...... I don't like this philisophy and I am not expecting this for a top hotel.

We booked this hotel on a Travelzoo deal for £99 B&B and stayed on a Wednesday night so also got 2 for 1 fine dining for £46.

The hotel and grounds are beautiful. Reception was not your usual front desk so we walked straight past but were soon directed to the correct location. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady and she took us to our room.

The room was one their House rooms (£288) based in the attic. The room was small but comfortable and acceptable for £99 but definitely not worth £288 as it was in need of re-decoration and the carpet was slightly stained which was a shame as the facilities they provided was very thoughtful. This ranged from CD player with music to the latest magazines as well as the usual items e.g. dressing gowns & slippers etc.....

The dining experience was excellent the staff was very attentive. There was also a good selection for breakfast.

We had a fabulous time and would love to stay again however the full tariff is a little out of our price range especially for one of their bigger rooms. Would definitely recommend this beautiful hotel for a very special occasion. Thank you to all the staff for making a stay so enjoyable!

We went to Stapleford to celebrate Mother's Day so we booked a table for lunch. The food and the ambience were absolutely stunning and we enjoyed the whole experience very much. Only my wife was a bit dissapointed with the dessert as she ordered roasted banana crumble and it was one of them modern "deconstructed" desserts that some chefs like to do, however it didn't say anything on the menu, she would have avoided it if it did! Also the chocolate bread and butter pudding was served with custard on a rather flat plate, it looked beautiful (quite simple though) on the plate but I couldn't eat a lot of the custard. I would prefer a deeper plate where I can put my spoon in.
When we wanted to have our coffees we asked if we could have them in the lounge as after a heavy meal you really want to relax on a confy sofa, however we were told we were not allowed to go in the lounge because they were fully booked for Afternoon teas, despite the fact it was 1pm and they do not start serving them until 2:30pm. We felt quite dissapointed as the price we paid for Mother's day lunch is double the price per person than what you pay for an afternoon tea, so we ended up heading to the Reception area to pay and leave without even enjoying the House and all its wonders.
My wife was very happy though as she got a £30 voucher to spend in the Spa

Room Tip: Lovely food
