With the help of a voucher supplied by our thoughtful son, my wife and I decided to 'upgrade' our normal dining out and visit the impressive Hempstead House Hotel for a special occasion. A walk through pleasant grounds on a lovely summer's evening soon found us in a pleasant lounge, where we were cordially greeted, and after ordering drinks chose... More

Arrived on a very sunny day for afternoon tea in celebration of a 70th birthday. Shown to a table inside the hotel, we asked if we could take tea outside as it was a beautiful afternoon, the staff were very quick in accommodating this request. The pot of tea arrived very quickly, although we were not asked if we had... More

Afternoon tea for two today was very good on the whole. When we arrived and the first tea was served, we weren't asked what we wanted, and were just served breakfast tea. We noticed when another couple arrived they were actually asked what they wanted to choose tea-wise first time around. The tea arrived quickly, and I think we should... More

I spent a very pleasant afternoon here, as a treat from a friend, and there were certain aspects that were lovely. Most of the staff were obliging and helpful, but not all of them. As I say - it was average - nothing that memorable.

We booked a room here for our anniversary, when we booked we were informed that a wedding was taking place on the same night but was reassured that the room we had been allocated would not be affected by any noise and that the disco would stop at 12pm. My, how they got that wrong.....as we tried to sleep, all... More

Didn't stay at Hempstead House, but booked a mid-week table for four in the restaurant. Three excellent courses for £17. Beautifully cooked and beautifully presented. Attention to detail seems to be the watchword for Hempstead House. The approach through the gardens to the reception area is beautifully manicured; the waiting staff are obviously trained to the highest standards ( I... More

For business I am used to staying at international brands. It's been a long time since I stayed at an English country hotel and my previous experiences were not good. For business my priority is a quiet room, ability to work and a comfortable bed. This hotel nearly delivered in full. My only issue was with the WiFi. Great that... More
