We have just had the most enjoyable stay at the Briery Wood Country House Hotel. We had a 2 night break with breakfasts and dinner on the first night included. The food was excellent. So much so that we also had dinner there on the 2nd evening. The staff were all extremely friendly and polite. We were initially greeted on... More

I booked this place for a meeting with colleagues - it's main business is training and leadership conferences, so they really know how to look after business travellers. Really attentive service, very well proportioned rooms and a real bonus was beautiful weather and each of our rooms having a patio with chairs and tables. It has a variety of lounges,... More

I was particularly impressed with the staff at this hotel, who were smiling, happy and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and healthy (I'm dairy intolerant so that helps!). Rooms were very clean with lovely comfortable beds.

We had a really cheap offer 2 night break with 1 dinner 2 breakfasts so our expectations were not high. On arrival we were given help to get our luggage up the few stairs to our garden rooms. The carpeted hallways did indeed look quite tired but very clean. HOWEVER the room was really CLEAN with a comfortable bed ,... More

We stayed for a weekend on the travelzoo offer and we could not fault the hotel at all. Upon arrival we were met by a very friendly receptionist who showed us to our room, the room we had was 17 and I think it had been recently refurbished,the bed was enormous and one of the comfiest I have slept in...

We enjoyed two lovely nights here last week on a bargain 2 night break. The staff here are a very polite and friendly team. The food was enjoyable but bear in mind that if you are on the B&B + ED deal, the evening menu offers only two main choices plus a Veggie option (from a rolling wider menu) which... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on a Travel Zoo special deal. They told us on booking that they only had the small double room left on the dates we required and was that OK. However, I have to say that the room was more than adequate and very comfortable - better than a lot of standard... More

Visited on a deal from travelzoo, so had 2 nights and dinner on the first. Restaurant was so good we booked for dinner on the second night. Beautiful gardens, very friendly and helpful staff, superb food, and a bar with real ale at reasonable price. We will be going back again

This was our second stay at Briery Wood, we arrived late and were lucky to get a room. Reception staff were very friendly, and the room appointed and a decent size. Unfortunately it felt as if the heating was on under the floor - and with the outside temperature being unusally warm the room felt sweltering. The bed was comfortable,... More
