Had a really good long week-end staying at Woodhall Spa, the hotel is ideally situated for anyone interested in the work of the Royal Air force during the war and the home of the "Just Jane " Lancaster bomber which is based at East Kirkby Museum of Aviation. My visit was very enjoyable in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere in... More

Have stayed in Woodhall Spa many times, would love to be able to afford to stay at the Petwood... Maybe for a future treat eh?! So I always make sure I go for a cream tea when I'm there. They are so welcoming, the hotel is stunning, you can wander round looking at the Dambusters photos, and the Officers mess... More

Although I have lived in Lincolnshire all my life this was the first time I have visited the Petwood. The occasion was a friends wedding. Excellent meal in beautiful surroundings, attentive staff , reasonable bar prices. Hotel is full of character being the former Officers Mess for 617 Squadron(Dambusters) in WW2. Being an aircraft nut, especially Lancasters I was hooked.... More

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...

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.

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.
