We recently had our wedding at Horsley Lodge on Friday 1 August, having placed our initial booking with them in September 2013. 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

Dear angie01332 Thank you for your kind comments regarding our hotel. We have been blessed with some beautiful evenings as of late and certainly have the grounds to showcase it.

In April, I married my British husband and we had our reception at the Horsley Lodge. I cannot express how wonderful the entire day/evening was!

The restaurant where the Vintage afternoon tea was served was a very pleasant room with lovely views from the windows. The table was set nicely with vintage china and a vase of (artificial not fresh) flowers. Sadly, the quality of the afternoon tea did not match the setting, and was certainly not worth the price charged, and I would definitely... More

Dear J R Thank you for taking the time to review our Vintage Afternoon Tea at Horsley Lodge and I am very sorry that you were disappointed with the experience.

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
