Check in was quick and friendly. We then had small tour of the hotel before being shown to our room (57) which was... More

Amazing place, good food, beautiful rooms and excellent service. Attended a work offsite here and the staff were great. The rooms are very large with huge beds and massive bathrooms with free standing tubs. The outdoor heated pool is fantastic and the grounds are stunning. Food was very good, slightly small portion sizes however.

This hotel is in a class of its own and is giving other five star hotels a run for its money. The whole experience was brilliant from when we first arrived at reception to a very warm welcome to the spa, the food and the most amazing service ever - just brilliant!

I recently stayed in this hotel for my boyfriend's brother's 30th. It was an amazing weekend. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are kept wonderfully too. The meal we ate there was the best meal of the weekend.

I'll make this short. By far the highest quality service we've experienced from the time we drove up thru checkout. The hotel is perfect for those who are looking for something special and combined with an unbelievably beautiful setting Ellenborough Park is something special.

We came here on a family holiday with two energetic little ones looking to escape London life; enjoy the outdoors and relax in the evening. At Ellenborough we were spoilt with both, picturesque Cotswold beauty to explore from its doorstep, through to a luxury relaxing retreat to unwind at the end of the day. The hotel itself looks like a... More
