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

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

We were lucky enough to spot Austons Down on trip advisor and decided a rural retreat was just what we needed to celebrate our anniversary, we were looking for countryside views, peace and quiet and something special in addition to a hotel chain, we didn't know what but we just knew we wanted something special. We were so pleased to... More

Needing somewhere to stay when crossing the country from Somerset to Norfolk, this seemed like the perfect spot, it was. Just off the main roads we used to get there, my husband met us there and he had come from the London area and yet in the countryside and very quiet. Beautiful house, very comfortable en-suite rooms, very welcoming hosts,... More

Thank you very much indeed. We are lucky being quite close to the M40/A46 Junction as this is pretty much in the centre of the motorway network. More

I stayed here mid-week whilst on business. All the usual hotel options were full and I found this place on Tripadvisor. Driven mainly by the impressive looking exterior property pictures, I booked it online taking the last available room. From the outside the property is imposing and immaculately presented. It is modern but built in the Queen Anne style and... More

A first class place to stay. John and Lucy (brilliant chef) were ideal hosts and we had a most enjoyable dinner together with the other guests staying that night. The standard of the accommodation was faultless with the bedroom very comfortable and the en suite bathroom fitted with high quality features. We could only stay one night - we wish... More
