Have stayed here over the past 18 years on different occasions and still love the place. The hotel just oozes character and if you stay, be sure to go for a feature room as they are really, really special. Each one one has a charm of its own. Try not to get a hotel in the new building as they... More

My husband and I stayed at Great Fosters as our friends got married there. The venue is exceptional, something we are not used to (we felt a little out of place arriving in jeans and comfy travelling clothes) but we soon felt better once we changed for dinner. The staff are brilliant, they cannot do enough for you from helping... More

All the staff were extremely helpful We stayed in the coach house and the room was fantastic. We had our wedding reception here many years ago and have decided to hold our silver wedding... More

We spent last weekend at this charming hotel and had afternoon tea in the beautiful gardens and dinner in the Estate Grill. We had a wonderful room in the Coach House and all in all a truly enjoyable weekend. The staff especially Rui were superb and we can't wait to go back.

We held our wedding reception at this hotel in 2004, so we went back for one night in 2014 to relive some memories. Excellent hotel, relaxing gardens, charming room (Italian room), and great food. I like it.

Our wedding anniversary. Rachel W was the charming voice on the other end of the phone when i inquired about staying at Great Fosters, recommended an eye wateringly expensive package which included dinner and a wonderful room.

I took my husband for a surprise stay for his birthday on a Secret Escapes break. I cannot fault the quality of the hotel, it's staff and the food. Absolutely superb. Sadly as there was a wedding being held that day, the main house was full, but then suites in the coach house are modern and spacious and well fitted... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Probably built as a Royal Hunting lodge and very much a stately home since the 16th century, Great Fosters is now a prestigious hotel. Set amongst 50 acres of gardens and parkland, the hotel is a Grade One listed building blessed with the grandeur of 16th century England and luxurious modern facilities. Its past is evident in the mullioned windows, tall chimneys, fireplaces and brick finials, while the Saxon moat, crossed by a Japanese bridge, surrounds three sides of the formal garden. All the suites and bedrooms are individually decorated. The bedrooms in the Main House are adorned with tapestries and antiques, whilst the bedrooms in The Cloisters are more contemporary in style. The Coach House, refurbished in 2008, offers luxurious accommodation with the latest plasma screens, i-pod docking stations and fabulous bathrooms. The hotel offers a choice of two restaurants, The Estate Grill and The Tudor Room at Great Fosters. The Estate Grill is less formal and serves a simple and seasonal menu with many of the dishes cooked on a Josper grill. The Tudor Room at Great Fosters is an intimate, more sophisticated dining experience with just 24 covers set in a lavishly decorated dining room. ... more   less
