We took part on Friday night and it was a really good night, the actors were professional and played their characters really well, I would like to say that we guessed correct but we were totally wrong! I would recommend this night to anyone up for something different.

We were a family of 2 adults, 2 children and a baby. This hotel was spacious but dated. There is no lift so we had to carry the pushchair, suitcases and additional items, up 2 flights of stairs and half way around the hotel. The single bed was broken, when they arrived to replace it (at 8pm!) my husband had... More

It was a complete pleasure for my husband and I to get married at this lovely hotel last Friday. The staff are wonderful and made sure all our friends and family felt as welcome and special as we did. The food was delicious and we particularly loved the way all our fete games were set up on the lawn. It... More

We brought the Cadbury world package so was a great price considering everything included. When we arrived back at the hotel to check in we were informed all the family rooms were taken but they had allocated two rooms interconnecting. We said we would take a look at them as we had two young children with us. The first room... More

I arrived at 18:45 which is a pretty normal time to arrive at a hotel and was greeted by a sign on reception advising me that the receptionist was away and to take a seat and they would be back "momentarily". Having just completed a 3 hour journey, I wanted to get to my room, go to the loo and... More

We stayed at the Plough and Harrow for 1 night and we had a problem with the taps in the bathroom, the management (David) came quickly, realised there was a problem, he was very apologetic and moved us to another room, even carrying our bags. To make up for the experience, they gave us a complimentary meal in the restaurant... More

We wanted to go to Cadbury World and found a deal on Google for a night in the Plough and Harrow Hotel with a family room, afternoon tea, breakfast and a family ticket for Cadbury World for £89. The hotel entrance and reception is lovely but our family room was quite a distance from the reception and restaurant. If you... More

We stayed here as part of the cadbury world package and stayed an extra night. Room was adequate though at the other side of building in an adjoining block. Bit of a trek. Having read previous reviews about the decor I would agree and in our room carpet had definitely seen better days...probably when hotel was built. In the room... More
