We attended a wedding here and it was simply beautiful. The facilities were second to none and the staff were so friendly. We where evan able to bring our dog. There was bedding provided and we were able to take him to most parts of the hotel. The history is phenomenal as well. Would highly recommend xxx

Spent the afternoon on the terrace having afternoon tea in the sunshine with great views. Staff were very friendly and the afternoon tea was lovely, even with a wedding going on it was still relaxing and space available on the terrace.

Just one night to see the display! Set in mature woodland this century old, wood-panelled hotel is a picture at this time of year. The large car park is flanked by pink rhodies. Fantastic! We asked for a room that we had stayed in before. The bathroom had been updated and was clean and functional. Food at dinner had gone... More

The Petwood Hotel was the home of 617 (Dambuster) Squadron aircrew, who flew Lancaster bombers during the 1939-1945 war. I am a member of XI Squadron Association, having served on the squadron at Faßberg and Wunstorf, then West Germany during 1956/1957. For this special occasion the Association arranged the meal in the Petwood Hotel's 160 seater suite, using 12 round... More

I stayed here with my Mum so we could visit the Friends of Metheringham Open Weekend, my second visit, but my Mum's umpteenth! The hotel and gardens are an imposing sight as you approach the hotel. The greeting of, "Hi ya!" From the receptionist wasn't very professional! Our room was bright, comfortable and clean, apart from rock hard pillows (we... More

This establishment is always worth a visit, if for no other reason than the close connections with the Dambusters Squadron and the famous history of that. The heritage building is enclosed within excellent outdoor settings for relaxation/strolls or special occasions. Obviously a double glazing upgrade of this building would be prohibitive in cost and probably not acceptable within restraints for... More

We stayed at the Petwood over the May bank holiday weekend along with extended family. Reception weren't particularly friendly on arrival but check in was swift and soon at our room. The carpet was cream and obviously been down for many years and was very stained. The bathroom was ok but the water temperature in the bath was not that... More

Arrived early for a conference. it is set in a lovely location; first impressions once inside however were disappointing- the receptionist very efficient almost bordering on rude; knowing full well I was early having travelled, I was begrudgingly offered a coffee and was charged £2.50. No breakfast was offered which I would have been happy to pay for considering non... More

This was my sixth stay at the Petwood, and no less a pleasure than all of the others. Parking is never a problem, and the splendid grounds never fail to lift the spirits as soon as I enter the gate. The staff were helpful and friendly, and I was soon relaxing in the comfortable oak panelled rooms of this remarkable... More
