Dillington is a very special place for business meetings and whatever else you choose to do there! The accommodation varies from historic rooms to thoroughly modern rooms in the new buildings. Either way, the rooms are large, clean and the service is great. You do have to check out early, but that is a small price to pay. The grounds... More

Like ngeddie 1602, we stayed in the Hyde (same room by the look of it), for one night only, and I can only repeat "The room had great views over fields and was finished to a very high standard with a very good detail on design and look." I can add that the wet-room was also very spacious and well... More

I stayed at Dillington for 6 nights in July whilst doing a residential course. I had room 9 in the House which is a small double. The room was comfortable and clean. The food is good and the staff are lovely. There are various different rooms in the House, in the Hyde and The Mews. The staff are very helpful... More

A one night business travel stop on the way down to Cornwall. The main house is absolutely stunning and check in was very smooth, initially I was disappointed to be told I was not in a room in the main house but as I walked around the old stable blocks and saw “The Hyde” a ultra-modern design building all changed...

We stayed there for a family wedding on one of the hottest days of the year, so it is always disappointing that they have built a very modern new bedroom block and don't include air conditioning, not even a fan. Very clean and tidy, staff very helpful and breakfast very good, people will love the surrounds and the grounds, which... More

We stayed in the modern part (the Hyde) and had a fantastic view over the fields & walled garden. The room was fine, the staff friendly and helpful (even though they were dealing with 2 weddings). We had a peaceful night's sleep and a great breakfast. The grounds around Dillington are beautiful and I would certainly stay here again (...and... More

We stayed in the main house for a weekend wedding at he venue. The staff were very friendly and helpful making our stay very relaxin. The great weather meant we able to take full advantage of the beautiful grounds and surrounding views. The large crochet and putting lawn kept the children entertained. The food was of very good quality and... More

Our two nights here have gone too quickly. We are here as part of a course but would very much like to come back on a b and b basis too. Can warmly recommend The Lord North Room! Breakfast is delicious and hot plates frequently replenished so the eggs are cooked perfectly and the bacon is crispy and has not... More

If there were half marks available, I would actually give this hotel 3.5 but as I think 3 is a bit mean. Firstly don't expect this to be Stately home converted into a hotel as this isn't, the house and grounds are predominantly used for lectures and conferences and they have some rooms as a way of making a bit...
