Arrived on Sunday to a very warm welcome from John and I felt at home within minutes. Was shown to my room (Dorm) which was spotless and very inviting. The whole 2 days I was there was very relaxing and the meals were excellent and the interaction with other guests was great. If your think of going and feel unsure... More

This wonderful palace of varieties reminds me of staying in one of Martin Millar's wonderful Maximal Style establishments but where the tapestries and antiques are replaced with personalities, warmth, humour, debate and bloody good fun! Not so much "Antiques Road Show" but more "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue"! This last weekend, the place was rocking, and packed full with... More

I've just had a wonderful 10 day stay at Hamilton Hall and yet again, it has totally rejuvenated my body, my mind and my soul. The facilities and welcome that you receive here are second to none; as is the sage-like advise and love from its genial host, John. The relaxed atmosphere gives you the impression that you are actually... More

I always say that Hamilton Hall offers Sexual, Self and Spiritual Development for Mind, Body and Soul of Men, and offers a very different approach to what is usually expected from a men only hotel, and Hamilton Hall really is one of a kind. With lovely people like Rick staying;- and with so many other kind and thoughtful guests, this... More

You can see how John has plowed his heart and soul into making this place something a little different. I have visited a few times now and it doesn't feel like a hotel, feels more like you are stopping with family. John makes you feel so at home from the moment you arrive. He is an amazing host and has... More

Thanks for this wonderful review. So glad when people understand what we offer here and how different we are. With the summer being somewhat changeable weather wise, it is so good when guests enjoy staying in the hotel and using the garden, chill out rooms and not feel they are missing out as the sun is not shining. There is... More

Have been meaning to visit Hamilton Hall for some time now, and finally got the chance although only for a couple of nights. Straight away John and the establishment make you feel relaxed and welcome. Our room, (as was the whole place) was spotlessly clean, very relaxing and welcoming. The attention to detail is amazing. I cannot remember staying anywhere... More

I stayed recently for a few all-too-short days and nights at Hamilton Hall and enjoyed every minute. John and his one helper worked tirelessly to ensure that all the guests were made to feel very welcome. The evening meals we enjoyed were really first class and there was ample for my healthy appetite. It was a real delight to go... More

It is always a delight to read a positive review concerning what we have been offering and especially so when from such nice guests. We spend a lot of time keeping the place clean and tidy and glad to say, even if a bit of dust or the occasional pube is found, it is not the end of the world...... More

I have just returned from a mid week get away at HamiltonHall. This is a wonderful place to stay and John makes you feel so welcome. The rooms are really tastefully decorated with so many interesting things to make it a hotel with a difference. In every corner there is something to catch your eye and the downstairs loo has...

Always so good to once again know that what we offer here at Hamilton Hall is well received. Having recently refurbished the Community Room and always re doing, re furnishing, re painting and re newing - costs a huge amount of money and when we get such good reviews like this, it makes it all worth while. Big thanks. More

What a delightful review and so good to see that what we offer here is so well received.
