We have stayed at Gatton many times on short golfing breaks and have always enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere and welcoming staff - not to mention the value for money. We decided to host our 60th birthday party there last weekend. We could not have asked for more. The hotel had hosted a wedding the day before and there was a... More

Have been two years running on a family golf break and am looking forward to next year already. There is nothing flash about the facilities and the course, however the relaxed and friendly staff and members make up for it in bundles, even the smiling kind lady at the half way hut was brilliant. I warm to the course every... More

Our ladies golf club has just spent a wonderful weekend at Gatton Manor. It was a beautiful place, so friendly and intimate, the hotel, club house and grounds were very pretty and comfortable, everything on a small, old fashioned and intimate scale. The staff were really welcoming and helpful, couldn't do enough for us (including helping us dry our wet... More

We stayed for one night having attended a wedding reception 1.5 miles up the road. The room was big, airy and comfortable. What made the experience even more memorable was the friendliness and service levels demonstrated by every staff member we encountered. Our car was left at the wedding venue the night before, meaning we were forced to pay a... More

We booked one of the luxury rooms. It was very spacious with plenty of seating and cupboards and a wardrobe. King size bed. Big bathroom. Everything was very clean. All very nice. The room (Room 2) overlooked the golf course (with door and small balcony) and had no direct neighbours so it was very quiet. I slept well. Our only... More

Last year (2012) a group of friends got together and went to the Gatton Manor Christmas party night with a buffet meal for £20 a head. Last year (2012) it was superb value for money but this year (2013) it was dreadful. There was a smaller selection of food and the quality of it wasn't as nice as last year... More

Being a non golfer I was rather sceptical of staying at gatton manor hotel. However, for £50 approx per night, including a splendid cooked breakfast, we were delighted with the hotel, especially the welcome and staff.
