We had the most wonderful wedding in this lovely, private location. The support of the Coltsfoot staff from the planning to the actual wedding day was wonderful and very professional. Nothing was too much trouble and all staff were so polite and helpful. The rooms are all individual and of a very high standard. We had friends and family coming... More

Really helpful we were about to check in to our room early. Great size room, lovely bathroom and practical kitchen. Loved the accessibility from the venue. No curtains (admittedly a sky... More

I had a good stay overall, but every element of the stay was marred by a small problematic detail. For a hotel aiming to be luxurious, this is not acceptable and is why I have rated it "average" - it is not worth the price for the standard I received. I wonder whether it was because we were there on... More

Not too much to say really but the staff went above and beyond for our wedding in July at Coltsfoot. We had a biblical thunder storm the night before, the courtyard was a mess, the marquee was drenched and it looked like a tornado had ripped through it. With the hard work of the staff and management the place looked... More

We had a fantastic wedding here last week despite the torrential rain! Helen and her team were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and when we had to move the wedding inside everything was done quickly. We had so many positive comments from our guests about the rooms and the food. Coltsfoot provided a beautiful backdrop for our wedding as... More

We recently got married at Coltsfoot and we had a lovely experience and all our guests thought the venue and the food were amazing. We had originally booked the restaurant and shelter marquee for our wedding reception knowing it was a little bit smaller than we had wanted. Miraculously, in January they extended the bar and restaurant, making it a... More

Reading the other reviews I wonder whether Coltsfoot was having a major off day when I was there recently for a meeting but my experience was really not good. I drove for two hours arriving at 10pm in order to get a good night’s sleep. The room was lovely and the staff member on hand helpful, getting me some fresh... More

Dear Claire Thank you for taking the time out to post a review on trip advisor following your recent stay with us. Constructive feedback is always very much appreciated. With regard to the over-heated room, this was very unfortunate. I believe at that time the weather took a sudden turn towards summer and so an increase in temperature. Although the... More
