Blantyre should be on everyone's bucket list. You will feel like you are staying on the grounds of a king and queen and the staff will treat you like royalty. The staff made us feel as if they were waiting just to personally meet our every need. We stayed there while attending the Berkshire British Motorcar Festival and it was the perfect setting. Breakfast, the only meal (meals are included) we ate there, was phenomenal and special requests were cheerfully handled. They will even provide a picnic for you. The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. We wish we had more time to spend on the grounds.

I went to the Blantyre to celebrate my Mom's birthday. It was a truly amazing experience. The staff was great and the food pretty darn good. We got the tasting menu and it was excellent. On top of that Simon, the general manager, was amazing. He showed us around the property and treated us to a great time.

I cannot say enough good things about the Blantyre and so to learn more check out my food blog, "The Food Travels of a Coffee Snob" at http://foodtravelsofacoffeesnob.blogspot.com/

Blantyre transports you to another era. It's probably the single most beautiful manor at which we've had the opportunity to stay. The service is absolutely perfect, and our weekend days included a wine tasting, high tea, a walk on the beautiful grounds, and relaxing in the spa. Two days here feels like you've spent a week decompressing. Expensive but you'll never forget it -- this is a true stand out.

I have stayed in many world class hotels but this one has them all beat. Some hotels are spectacular because of the scenery, some the accommodations, some the service, or even the food; but this hotel has them all. We went for a long weekend in January and have wanted to return ever since. I was supposed to go with my husband but since he had to work I took a close friend. We stayed in the two bedroom Ice house and it was truly magical. I felt like we had our own cabin in the woods. Everything that you could possibly want or need was available at our fingertips. I wish I had the words to be able to truly express how magical this place is. When we arrived, even though we had both driven they took our bags and put them into the resorts car and guided us to our cottage. They built us a fire, put our bags in our rooms and gave us a tour of the cottage. It had a wonderful window seat in a bay window in the living room, a sun room built entirely of windows with a sofa, chairs and a table, there was a hidden flat screen tv in the living room with a variety of movies (more available upon request) and a dining room with an antique table for 6. There was brand new stainless steel kitchen with luxury dishes and cook wear, complimentary drinks in the refrigerator as well as a welcome basket with fruits, teas, cookies and chocolates. The master bedroom located on the main level was large, bright and spacious with a changing area/walk in closet and an enormous bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub, dual sinks and the toilet was behind its own door (water pressure was excellent). In the morning, they send in several people at once to clean, to cut down the amount of time that they are there. At turn down, we were given a box of chocolates as well as the blantyre cookbook, which is beautifully done, my friend, who was staying in the bedroom downstairs, received the same thing. Although the other bedroom is downstairs with its own bathroom, it is still above ground and both bedrooms have decks that you can walk out on or have a meal. While we were there we went ice skating, (they even have a hot chocolate menu you can order from while on the rink. We took a carriage ride, went snow shoeing, had massages and just generally explored. The food was exceptional, especially dinner, their sommelier was incredible, we had no desire to go anywhere else. Before dinner, they bring you drinks and canapés. I could go on forever about this place but I think this one experience will sum it up, my friend was starting to get sick so we called the front desk to see where the closest grocery store to buy cough drops was, they said they would call right back and about 10 minutes later the grounds keeper knocked on our door with a bag of cough drops, he said "I didn't know what flavor or brand you wanted so I got them all" furthermore, he refused to allow us to pay them or accept a tip. Blantyre really goes beyond every expectation. I can't wait to return
