I cannot speak highly enough of my stay at Sopwell House, my girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights and booked the package which included a standard double room (nothing standard about it, very nice indeed) one treatment and all of our food... it was amazing. Staff cannot do more for you and especially in the restaurant some of the... More

On the whole this is lovely place, but has some niggles. It is very annoying that every drink, snack or meal has 10% gratuity added. Really, a cup of coffee does not warrant a gratuity. If evening meal is included in deal, but you don't want the fixed concept menu, they give you £20 pp off the a la carte... More

I wouldn't go back here if I was offered a free night!! When I complained that our room was the size of a shoe box I was told the hotel was full and there were no other rooms available. But when the shower produced a slow stream of at best tepid water I was told that I wasn't using the... More

A pretty hotel as you enter, Sopwell House is ten minutes drive from J21 of the M25. The rooms are pleasant, functional, but for the price just that. The staff are very friendly, helpful. It is a busy hotel - a lot of small and big functions, a lot of groups on spa stays. The brasserie is quite loud, the... More
