Stayed here overnight on business when I couldn't get into a mainstream hotel. I must admit it is not somewhere I would normally book into when away on business but I'm glad I did. I was made to feel very welcome even when I turned up late. The breakfast in the morning was lovely as was the room. I will... More

This is a really beautiful large comfy family home in the heart of Warwickshire. Friendly hosts. Lovely rural views and walks and we even heard our first cuckoo of the year. It is close to Stratford on Avon and Warwick so lots to do if you are looking for a weekend away.

When i arrived at Austin Down which was quite easy to find, i was welcomed by a lovely black lab called Bruce. The owner checked me in and was very friendly, room was good and well decorated, only draw back is it could do with some new curtains and possibly a different shower screen because i kept walking into the...

I booked this at late notice. This was a perfect location for local business if not a little pricey. The room and breakfast was excellent. However I appeared to be staying in the son's bedroom with Bart Simpson with portraits of the boy which was odd. Ten years ago I may have got his skateboard down and had a go... More

Thank you for your comments. We are a Wolsey Lodge and the essence of this association is the fact that the properties are family homes and guests who stay are considered house guests. Bart was painted by our second son as a school project for his younger brother. And yes you did stay in the youngest's room. He now works... More

Hard to find but worth the hunt. I would expect to pay over £400 a night for a room of this standard in London. Very friendly welcome and we would stay again if in the area. 5 stars...You must try the local pub for food..

This is a wonderful place. The rooms are stunning and very well laid out. The bathroom was gorgeous and very well equipped. What I loved the most was all the little touches that are throughout the hotel. It was wonderful and kept me occupied throughout the whole stay. Every time I thought I had seen it all I found something... More

Thank you for your comments. There is possibly some good news on the mobile 'phone front in that Vodafone have recently boosted their coverage of the area and I expect the other suppliers to follow suit. Best wishes, Lucy More

First of all, be prepared to hunt for this place, especially if you turn up in the dark. I drove past the entrance a couple of times before I found it. However, there was a warm welcome when I arrived and I quickly settled in. The room was very clean and tidy, the bathroom was immaculate and the breakfast excellent.... More

I have stayed in Wolsey Lodges before, and I am so pleased that my twin sister and I were able to stay at Austons Down for a school reunion weekend in Warwick. I had told my sister that it would be wonderful and we weren't disappointed! Lucy and John were marvellous hosts. They welcomed us in to their beautiful home... More

This was my first stay here and my first in a Wolsey Lodge. It won't be my last at either. Austons Down is a refreshing change from the corporate bed factories in Warwick and Stratford. I stayed here because the bed factories were full and I'm so glad that I did. Like so many of my business trips my big... More
