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

We visited The Petwood once again for the Woodhall Spa 1940s Festival. This time we stayed for 4 nights in the same room as last year. This overlooked the gardens and was very comfortable. It was a very warm weekend indeed and the bedroom was at times rather hot but we retired to the terrace below for a cool drink... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Petwood before with work, but this time it was for pleasure and part of a bigger adventure. My brother and I took our parents to East Kirby airfield for the 'Just Jane' Lancaster experience; so what could be a better prelude than a night in the former 617 Sqn Officers Mess. The... More

Arranged our wedding here, all ok to start with but 4 weeks before the wedding the hotel became a nightmare. Unpleasant behaviour from staff, agreed contracted prices was changed, dates wanted to be changed on their behalf right at last minute, rooms not up to standers, food not cooked properly. Drinks watered down for extortionate prices. Would never recommend this... More
