upon arrival we found there was no hot water to the barn cottage which costs£165 a night we found this un-acceptable of a hotel of such standard and would of expected this from a cheap travelodge hotel after waiting a couple of hours they finally sent a plumber out to fix the water which was another inconvenience as you felt...

I have just returned from a vintage afternoon tea and have had a lovely afternoon. There was a good variety of sandwiches and cakes with an unlimited supply of various styles of teas. Unfortunately due to the seating arrangement in the old restaurant we did feel a little out of the way from any staff members should we have had... More

It saddens me to write this review - because I can see from many other reviews on here that people have had great experiences with Horsley Lodge both for golf, food and weddings but I felt it important to share my own experiences with you.

Dear Suparuku, Thank you for your recent review of Horsley Lodge. I am sorry that on this occasion we did not meet your requirements. As you have quite rightly pointed out in your review this is far from the standard we operate at Horsley Lodge and quite a surprise and disappointment to our team.

On top of the basic wedding package we also reserved 9 of the rooms and for a very reasonable fee and we upgraded the bridal suite for the Barn Cottage, which the bride used for the night before...

We stayed here for a long weekend, as we were attending a wedding reception at Horsley Lodge, and it is clearly great for weddings and golfers. But this review is of a very nice hotel, set in pleasant grounds (among the tees!), with a pleasant and reasonably priced bar and restaurant, and lovely rooms. Staff, in particular, are very good....

Dear Paulaus Tirol Thank you for your kind comments about our special venue. It is always very easy for people to write off golf clubs as members only venues and it is lovely that ours has been perceived as welcoming to all. It is of paramount importance to us that all our guests are looked after equally whether attending a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just 8 miles from junction 25 of the M1, Horsley Lodge Hotel offers a quiet retreat for those looking to stay, dine, golf, relax or attend a function. Just driving through the gate is promising, but the Hotel at Horsley Lodge has received significant investment over recent years with all bedrooms and bathrooms being refitted and now combining the comforts of home with stylish design. You feel as though you are a guest of The Earl of Stainsby who built this fine Country House 150 years ago as a dowry for his son. We have super-king size beds, surrounded by fine fabrics and wall coverings. The restaurant has a number of dining options to tempt your taste buds. Your room is individually designed, most with a view of the Par 3 ninth hole and service standards of a very high quality. We were recently re-awarded 81% by the AA inspectors. We look forward to welcoming you to see for yourself. ... more   less
