We have just had our Christmas Event at the recently refurbished Paddocks House and we experienced a truly delightful evening. The organisation was brilliant, attention to detail was fabulous, food was great and service was impeccable. As they have recently re-opened it was very quiet but that did not detract from our experience and in fact made it much more... More

What a Shambles! We tried to book a Christmas Party for 22. We must have spoken to Five different people & no one knew what was going on. No one ever bothered to come back to us, we had to do all the chasing. They took our credit card details & eventually confirmed our booking. We rang back to confirm... More

When we visited this hotel it was still under previous management and we went on a Groupon. Although the rooms have seen better days, it is a bit quirky with all the racing references. We found all the staff lovely and friendly and the afternoon tea in the bar area was excellent. I loved the restaurant with its old ceiling... More

This hotel is now called manor 64 and has now been totally refurbished. Very quiet, very relaxing and the staff are very polite. I stayed at this hotel and the service could not be faulted. I could not fault anything even my wife was surprised to find a useful hair dryer, not the usual ones that are powerless, but a... More

My husband and I were booked to stay at this hotel for 2 nights in June (as we were going to a friend's wedding). On the first night, as we were travelling to the hotel I received a phone call telling me that we would not be able to stay as they were having problems with recurrent gas leaks. The... More

We got married at Swynford Hotel on 1 December 2011 and all I can say is that we definately made the right choice on the venue. The events manager was brilliant from start to finish and was so helpful and patient in helping us organise a wedding for 65 guests in just 10 weeks. She regularly kept on top of... More

We went to this hotel for afternoon tea, my wife having booked in advance on the recommendation of a friend. Upon arrival we were greeted by the receptionist, we said we were here for afternoon tea at which point she directed us to the bar seating area saying that someone would be along shortly. We sat in the bar area... More

I booked afternoon tea for my husband's birthday, on November 5th, we arrived in plenty of time and was advised by a receptionist to take a seat on the sofas and someone would be with us. We sat and a barman came to ask if we would like a drink, I replied we would wait for tea. We waited 15... More
