I can only say the management team need to think again. To start repair works without informing customers is not good enough. We planned an event at Sopwell house and had hoped to have a nice time. I was not expecting much as it was a business event. We had booked the fine dining restaurant only to be told it's... More

I know businesses want to get busy. But Sopwell House needs to understand people want at least a modicum of peace when they come somewhere like this. It's basically a destination for mediocre hen dos. We couldn't get in the spa (fully booked). We couldn't get a seat in the bar (too busy). Our window wouldn't shut (errr). I'm all... More

Upon checking-in, as reception were aware that it was my birthday they upgraded our room from the standard double room we had... More

My friend and I enjoyed the 'Evening Escape' at Sopwell House at the end of January. Not only were the facilities clean and well maintained, but our time in the spa was made even more special due to the warm welcome we received from Tasha and Danni at Reception. They made our time even better with their friendly smiles and... More

Upon arrival we were greeted and given a welcome drink, they then asked if this was for a special occasion to which we said Birthday- Great attention to detail. We had our bags taken to our rooms and I had a big bunch of flowers waiting... More

We had a different experience, on this occasion, in comparison to other visits. We stayed in Sopwell Mews, which had been fully renovated and had extra accommodation added.It was just a stones throw outside the main hotel doors, behind closed gates. Amongst the green sculptured gardens, a steamy hot tub, beaconed for visitors to take a luxury dip. Each Little... More

We used to stay at this hotel a lot as we have a 4yr old and the Mews offered him a garden and he could use the pool unlike sadly most Spa hotels. When they renovated it they removed the gardens and restricted children's use of the pool to 8-10am so we felt we couldn't go as a family anymore... More
