We came as part of a group of about 20 people who have our ‘Christmas Party’ here every February, we all love this place and come year on year. This is our fourth visit here and I’m glad to say, nothing has changed. It still has the same quaint, quirky, idiosyncratic charm that makes this hotel so different, so special,... More

If you are looking for a weekend get-together with extended family, old classmates or club members, Heaves Hotel is perfect. Don't be put off by the "Country House" hotel bit; this is a very friendly and relaxed place. Good food, reasonable rates, a bar, drawing room, marvellous walks, easy access from M6, fine setting, even a piano in the lobby... More

Yesterday a group of us had a lovely time at the Heaves Hotel. We assembled around midday and had a leisurely drink before lunch at 1.00pm. Food good (of a down-to-earth sort) and our coeliac friend was very well catered for. The ladies who waited on us were friendly and chatty and offered second helpings of vegetables etc. A lovely...

We have just returned from a week in Horseshoe Cottage, a self- catering cottage in the hotel grounds, converted from the old stables. The cottage is lovely, very clean and comfortable. It has kept all of its old charm and atmosphere but is very modern and exceptionally cosy, even on nights when the rain was falling and the winds howling.... More

We stayed in Groom's cottage - a one bedroom self-catering apartment in the grounds of Heaves Hotel. The hotel is an old country house dating from the early 1800's and is set in attractive grounds. What is probably the old stable block has been converted into a number of self-catering apartments. Groom's cottage has a living/dining room and kitchen on... More
