If you love old country houses with atmosphere and military history you will love this place. Set in beautiful grounds it is a quiet location. There is plenty of car parking space at the front of the hotel. Check in was efficient and the staff all friendly. I rather like the old-fashioned look of the house however, some upgrading would...

We attended a friends birthday party last week. The hotel has always had a great presense, the Canadian flight crew were around (they arrived with the Lancaster that day), the whole place has a sense of history. However it does come accross as a bit tired, still very good but could be better. The food was o.k. the service was... More

Everyone had said "if you go to Woodhall Spa you have to have a cream tea", well rude not to. Very impressive building slightly off the beaten track. Nice big car park too. Bit of a warren on the inside, but we soon found the bar and ordered our cream tea. Staff were very pleasant and professional. We sat inside... More

Lovely as expected from other reviews. We were disappointed with the use of public swimming and tennis which were not available when we wanted to use them and perhaps should have booked somwhere with their own facilities. Our dog loved it but the teenagers were at a loose end at times.

Visited last Saturday evening for our anniversary meal and we were made to feel very welcome and the food was delicious! I never write reviews but this was so lovely and made our evening very special. A beautiful setting and wonderful food - I would highly recommend! ( The peanut brûlée with Guiness ice-cream was sublime!)

..to East Kirkby, RAF Scampton and RAF Coningsby. There were 3 couples in our party and we took advantage of the Hotel's offer of 3 nights B&B + 2 dinners, for the price of 2 B&Bs + 2 dinners - a very good value deal. Having read all about the Hotel in Trip Advisor, I was unprepared for the warmth... More

My wife and I held our wedding reception here in 2012 and combined with the weather and guests made it a special day to remember. The staff, food and overall service was splendid. The toast master (whose name has slipped my memory) was excellent even going as far as giving the best man a couple of shots of jack Daniels... More

My 4th visit to this hotel whilst involved with the East Kirkby air display. Large comfortable room at the front, great shower. Really cannot help re-reading all the 617 sqn memorabilia. Beer on the terrace, excellent dinner in the restaurant, what more could you ask for. It's all a bit olde-worlde and yes, you could say it is a bit... More

Every time we stay, we forgive the Petwood for the tired decor and the odd cobweb. The beds are pretty poor and the whole place could do with an injection of cash to bring it up to more modern standards....but it's still got charm, some of the rooms are large and pleasant enough, and there are the beautiful grounds and...

We only stayed one night at this lovely hotel, but it will be a long term memory!! The welcome we received was first rate, the room was everything we could have asked for, with a shower to die for!! The garden and grounds were absolutely lovely, with seating tucked away to enjoy the peace and quiet. We will definitely return,... More
