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

Thank you so much for the review. We try to keep our house as a family home and the children do return at times during the year to take possession of their rooms. It is always encouraging that this is appreciated by our guests. Lucy 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.

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
