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

Fabulous place, after crossing over from the M1 to the A1 in the middle of the night through miles of single track road, I was glad to find this place very easily. When I arrived everyone was asleep. But, the kind team had left instructions on the front door of how to get to my room including a map of... More

Recently at Coltsfoot for a meal with my mum. The restaurant was quiet and they had given us a great table with views across the countryside opposite. Mum had the lamb and said it was the best she'd ever tasted. Always a pleasure and the food is always lovely. I love coltsfoot!

Excellent venue. Went here for recent business offsite. Staff were very helpful, couldn't do enough for us. It's not a traditional conference/meeting venue so the meeting room has a mezanine bedroom and the projector sat on a table (they removed a picture to show the images) however that added to it's charm. Food was great, tasty and plentiful. Staff were... More

My wife and I stayed at Coltsfoot last Monday/Tuesday night - what a great place! We had drinks and a lovely dinner for 4 on Monday evening, and it could hardly have been better. We're an ex-Stevenage couple who discovered the escape route many years ago, so you can expect us back next time there's a local "family-do" to attend... More

Wonderful venue, accommodating staff, superb food in a stunning location. True professionalism! Jenny and Richard did their utmost to ensure everything went smoothly for this surprise event. Their staff worked so hard so that all guests had a wonderful afternoon and couldn't speak highly enough of this memorable day.

I discovered this place through word of mouth and now stay there on a regular basis when i'm away on business. An absolutely delightful place to stay, surrounded by countryside. The food is consistently good, and each room has character (i've stayed in most of them!). All topped off with great service from a lovely team of staff. Highly recommended.
