For anyone seeking a manor house experience in the heart of the Cotswolds, Ellenborough Park is hard to beat. I stayed here in October of 2013 and was impressed by the service, comfort and attention to detail. Dating back 500 years, this property has a storied past and much of it is preserved in the main house. The "Great Room"... More

We went to this hotel as part of a family of 14 for Sunday lunch. What a fabulous event. No getting us in and out in a hurry as we were there from 1pm until 5.30pm. We started with drinks in a little mezzanine area getting our whole party together. Then we moved on to a private room with one... More

We returned to Ellenborough Park as part of our honeymoon (we got engaged there last year). As always, a great stay. We stayed in the main part of the building this time - beautiful spacious room and nice to be so close to everything! Two lovely meals, one at the Brasserie, one in the Beaufort Dining Room. Staff were great... More

We had a fabulous 3 night stay here. We had a suite at the front of the main building (room 2). It was an extremely peaceful location and we had sunlight in the room all day!. Great view of the racecourse from the room too. Both rooms were spotlessly clean and in excellent condition - it almost felt like we... More

Stayed here as part of my wife's 40th birthday weekend. The staff were friendly and very attentive, the location is beautiful and the food was fantastic. We stayed in a new part of the building that was a comfortable size, my wife loved the bath and everything was clean and very well maintained. On an evening it is so peaceful... More

Relaxing comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Enjoyed the venue for a lovely wedding. Also great breakfast and dinner in the brasserie. Didn't get time to use the spa. Shower good, excellent mirrors, comfy bed. Like the organic tea and fresh milk in the mini bar. Complimentary water too. Main building has some interesting historical features.

We have had a lovely start to our short break. Everybody at the Ellenborough have looked after us so well, thank you, but what I must comment on whilst still here is that tonight there was a smallish blip with one of our meals. I can't be more appreciative to our lovely waitress and the super Mr Hanna (GM )... More

I am delighted that you are enjoying your stay here once again, it's always nice to see guests return. I am also pleased that I, with my colleague, was able to resolve your 'blip' with one of your meals. We hope you have an enjoyable Easter Break. Kind regards John Hanna Ellenborough Park More

From the moment you drive up in the rain to be met by a member of staff who takes your bags and parks your car, you know this is a very upmarket place. Try to get a room in the old part of the hotel with wonderful characterful fittings. The annex is a short walk away, not so pleasant when... More

This is by far the best afternoon tea experience I have had. It is perfection on a plate! The staff are faultless, the location stunning, the food a delight. I can also highly recommend the non-alcoholic cocktail (mojito) it is to die for. This was our first visit for my Mums 80th birthday, but it certainly won’t be our last.... More
