We were looking for a perfect one night getaway and this was perfect - it is only a 30 minute drive from London but feels worlds away. We went mid-week and it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The tea was lovely and dinner was fantastic - the nicest French waitress who really went out of her... More

Delighted to be able to return to Great Fosters and to be staying in the House. Despite being on an exceptionally good rate we were upgraded to a room with real character and a lovely balcony. Once again the welcome was warm and personal. The staff are clearly proud of the hotel and everyone we meet shows a personal interest... More

This grand old 16th century country house and hunting lodge served as a retreat for Henry VIII. It has been in the same family for the last 100 years and meticulously maintained true to the period. I stayed in the Panel II room and it was fantastic. Spacious and beautifully appointed in period antiques I felt I had gone back... More

A really great hotel set in a former royal hunting lodge. Gardens are immaculately maintained and create a great first impression. Staff are very polite and helpful. The main building has loads of character. I stayed in one of the annexes. The room was quite small but had everything you could need and more. In fact the facilities in the... 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
