This was our second year celebrating New year at the Elstead. Great food and atmosphere. The staff can not do enough for you. Our room was very clean and comfortable and cleaned every day. We will be back next year.

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights in December 2014. The hotel staff were excellent from arrival to departure and nothing was too much effort. The room was good (a bit dated if you want to be picky!) and was cleaned to a on a daily basis. The hotel is a little bit old, therefore there was some noise... More

Staff were lovely and worked hard to ensure all went well - many thanks to Dave who we had some laughs with in the dining room too and Graham the Manager who continually worked to ensure all was well.

We have just returned from our sixth Christmas in a row at The Elstead. As always we got a very warm welcome from Graham, the manager, and his team. All of the staff are very friendly and aim to make sure that our stay is enjoyable. The food, as always, was excellent. The choices were always good and you know... More
