What a great place to stay. The Dower House Hotel was everything we had expected from such a super Hotel. We stayed in one of the Lodges, separate from the hotel but only a short walk to breakfast. Our bedroom and en-suite bathroom were beautifully furnished, a lovely colour scheme. As a retired Interior Designer myself I would complement the... More

I stayed at this hotel with my 2 children to celebrate my 30th birthday, it exceeded my expectations! Top marks on everything!, excellent staff, very clean, gorgeous tranquil location yet near a lovely village centre and close to the lovely town of Horncastle and brilliant food! Will definitely be returning!

Had a lovely Sunday lunch. This was a set menu but plenty of choice. Unusual that lamb is an option so chose homemade asparagus soup, lamb and chocolate brownie with meringue and ice cream. Everything was homemade and top quality. Cooked well and beautifully presented. Service was outstanding. £22 for the 3 courses this was good value. Will definitely return... More

My partner and I have just enjoyed a one night break on an Autumn/Winter offer. The hotel has a very cosy feel with real fires in the evening to sit and relax by after a lovely freshly cooked meal. I am on a Gluten free diet and they were able to cater for me very well, even had gluten free... More

Good food well presented in pleasant surroundings near the famous village of Woodhall Spa is an ideal way to enjoy Sunday lunch. We had seafood for starters which was attractive and tasty, followed by perfectly cooked beef that was nicely pink and moist, with properly cooked veg! The Creme brûlée was excellent to round off a lovely meal.

The Dower House is a truly beautiful period building with lots of character and charm. I have stayed here with my wife and also brought the in-laws. It is the type of hotel that you can go to for a nice relaxing getaway with nothing to disrupt you if that is what you want. Equally it is in a great... More

Just back from a friend's wedding at Dower House. Everything ran seamlessly and it is a great setting for a wedding. Food was very good, staff were very helpful and our room was spot on. We stayed in the lodge at the rear and the room had plenty of space (which we needed for a toddler bed). It was definitely... More

We, unfortunately, had to visit Lincolnshire for an urgent family meeting. We booked the Dower House Hotel, by phone, led by an interesting web site and, to be honest, the location being very close indeed to the family we were visiting. When we booked, we took an up graded room, at a premium price, and we did not argue about... More
