Main course - one roast beef which was ok, one chicken with Parma ham crisp whitch we couldn't really defect... More

My friend and I very much looked forward to a spa weekend, and whilst the spa treatments and the staff were all lovely, the general maintenance of the building was atrocious. Dirty windows, stained carpets, noisy plumbing and general shabby appearance really let down what is a stunning building in stunning grounds. It was a real shame and on writing... More

Ok it needs a bit of work but fundamentally it's a really good hotel. The location is stunning. The staff are so lovely and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. It was clean and really good value. We had a family room which was huge with comfy beds. The bar food was Ok, not great but perfectly edible. I really... More

I went here for the 'princess treatment' for my birthday. First of all I was given a robe, a pair of slippers (which you could keep) and a free drink voucher. Me and my sister were taken up to the pool and went for a quick 10 minute swim, then we got taken to individual rooms and had a facial.... More

I will start by saying this is a return visit to the spa at elfordleigh, first visit I had no problems but second visit the facilities were really dirty! In fact the showers were so dirty that I showered at home and the female toilet smell over powered the whole changing room. The jacuzzi also looked and felt a bit... More

The hotel is in a pleasant setting and could so easily be awarded a higher grading if attention was paid to minor details. We had a superb large room with a good view and a 4 poster bed. We thought the bed was very comfortable which seems to differ with some previous reviews. However there was nowhere to put suitcases... More

We had the most amazing day and were so well looked after. Our wedding photographs have come back amazing as we had beautiful weather and were able to go down by the lake. We would definitely recommend having your wedding here and Sarah White is lovely and looks after you throughout your special day.
