Latest visit as wonderful as all others. The grand building hides a comfortable feeling within. Don't go there for modernity. Go for gentle inexpensive pleasure with friendly staff. Everything brings pleasure - even the topiary which, like almost everything else, is not quite as good as it should be, conveys happiness. Not grand enough for celebs and all the better... More

We visited the hotel with the specific aim of seeing the room used by 617 Squdron officers and were not disappointed. The collection of material was a fascinating insite into this famous group of men and their endeavours. The hotel food service was of a high qualitg and their sfaff were friendly and courteous.

Decided to push the boat out and celebrate in style at a hotel with so much history attached it as the accommodation of the 617 (Dambusters) Squadron. Something missing though - atmosphere - and you have to be told of how famous the place is to get the message instead of being able to breathe it ion. The entrance, front... More

We had an excellent two night stay at this hotel whilst visiting the nearby Lancaster Bomber experience at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre. The room was lovely with plenty of space and comfortable. Bathroom was well equipped and again spacious. We used the restaurant on both nights of our stay and the food was excellent and with a good variety... More

The Petwood is unique and is quietly comfortable. Old fashioned and lovely and warm! The lovely lounge area has an open fire. The only downside as far as we were concerned was the food which was over-salted to an unpleasant degree.

We decided on Petwood for our Silver Wedding celebration after having had an excellent time there in may celebrating our brothers 80th. The staff are so friendly and we had a lovely exec room overlooking the garden for 3 nights. Evening meals and breakfast delicious and wonderful ambience about the place. We will certainly return.

We were visiting East Kirkby to see the Lancaster Bomber and because of the history of the Petwood we thought it would add to our experience. We booked the last room available, a twin room (315) for two nights at a cost of £215 for Fri & Sat. Checking in on Friday we were very impressed with the reception staff... More

Stayed 2 nights last weekend, this is my treat from my husband for when we come up to East Kirkby. Have been coming up for many years and we are never disappointed. From the friendly welcome at reception to the warmth of the hotel that wraps itself around you. The place is full of old fashioned values and concern for... More

This hotel is unique and has a real charm and atmosphere about it. Very English, peaceful and full of guests that mostly have a reason to be there as we had. Coming all the way from New Zealand it is with some pride you feel associated to this place through its previous kiwi guests in the RAF as there were... More

I discovered the Petwood many years ago with my Father, who had been a gun armourer on the Lancaster squadrons during WW2 (RAF Wickenby), and it fascinated me then. For the past 12 years my husband and I have booked an 'annual retreat weekend' to the Petwood Hotel, whether for his birthday, my birthday or our wedding anniversary - spring,... More
