We booked our wedding at Horsley Lodge for the 18th July 2014. The day was superb. Laura assisted us a few weeks before with a meeting to plan our day, food, external suppliers, running order. My bride stayed the night before in barn cottage and we stayed on the wedding night. Amazing room! The venue is beautiful and very well... 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.

Dear Big_Al_1972 Thank you for your recent review of your stay at Horsley Lodge Hotel. I must apologise that the restaurant was unavailable on one of the nights during your stay.

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. Tea itself can be a very personal thing and whilst I agree that the absence of Darjeeling on the day is an oversight (thank you for highlighting this), English Breakfast... More

Due to a booking error at an alternative hotel, we were booked into Horsley Lodge without seeing any reviews, pictures or knowing much about the hotel. Boy what an absolute gem this hotel is!!

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
