Had a lovely stay here on my Christmas party. The staff are just lovely, very helpful on reception. And the food was great. The room was very clean and comfortable and the pool and sauna facility's are very good. I will definitely be returning again, such a lovely stay! Easy access car parking close to accommodation.

My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay at Sopwell House as part of a spa break for her birthday. We had some reservations having read some previous reviews, especially the comments surrounding the pool area being too busy and overrun with kids. However our reservations were unfounded. I guess it really depends on when you go. We stayed on... More

We booked in for a one night SPA break as we often go here and have really liked everything about the place. This time it didn't really start too well as when I checked in I was told room 117 which the key didn't work for and when I checked the card it said 144 so we walked along to... More

Stayed at the hotel as part of a multi-day business meeting. Set in lovely surroundings, with a lovely garden and trees, the hotel is a mix of the old and the new. Adequate car parking though the spaces were quite narrow and could do with being wider. Reception and business support staff were excellent, as were the staff who served... More

Nice enough hotel, but to describe the pool area as being part of a spa complex is a stretch. The problem is that the pool fills up with kids and the general melee that ensues is far from a relaxing environment. Fine if you are travelling with kids, but if you are a couple looking to unwind and relax forget... More
