Stayed at this lovely hotel and although they stay was very nice I was rather disappointed by the problems we have had since in getting a watch returned. Unfortunately a watch was left in the room. Rather than proactively calling us to let us know we had left it, we had been searching around at home and numberous of other... More

We spent 2 nights at Great Foster in September and we loved it. We had a beautiful historic room with a great view of the Tudor garden on the first floor. It was really easy to imagine yourself back in time! The staff was great, the room comfortable and the setting beautiful. The bathroom was not very big but really... More

Stayed in one of the tower rooms on my last night in England before leaving from Heathrow the next day. Great Fosters is beautifully situated and you are staying in a very old stately home - dark paneling, oak wood work, genuine antiques at every step, along with some great modern art. Paintings and sculptures abound in the building itself... More

Just returned from an over night stay at Great Fosters Hotel following a beautiful wedding there. The hotel is a wonderful building seeped in history, just the type of hotels that we enjoy staying at. The wedding reception fantastic, food amazing, staff very helpful and curteous. The only problem that we had was our rooms. We booked the hotel in... More

Thank you for your recent review. I am sorry that you had to swap room with your elderly mother. I would like to offer my sincere apologies for what was obviously some sort of miscommunication as we do not have any single rooms on the ground or first floor of the hotel. On a more positive note I was pleased... More

This location was originally built as a hunting lodge of Henry the 8th and has all of the character of that period of time. We had a fabulous room, although the bed was righteously uncomfortable. The restaurant offered great local fare and the staff were friendly and extremely helpful.

My partner and I have stayed here on 2 occasions and on both we had a lovely time and experience. Our first stay was in the luxury Italian Suite and this room was amazing. It was comfy with periodic features. Definitely would stay in this room again. The second stay we were in the Coach house and the rooms here... More

Having gone to stay at this hotel in June 2014 myself and my grandchildren had hoped to use the swimming pool the morning after our stay. Having gone down the pool with our costumes the pool had a lot of debris in it and did not look like it had been treated. I complained to the Cathy Nolan on my... More

Thank you for your review. Following on from our e-mail exchange I don’t feel either of us will benefit from another lengthy debate regarding the cleanliness of our pool. I still have total confidence in the cleaning regime and water quality of our 1920s outdoor pool. However, I must respond to your comment regarding family rooms. We have a number... More

My husband and I drove to this stunning historic hotel after being recommended to see it. The grounds were amazing - being carefully manicured whilst we were there. We loved the fabulous sculptures. We dodged the rain and had lunch in the Estate Grill. The service was superb. The restaurant manager, who had only started at the hotel the day... More

Having recently attended an evening wedding reception here, we were very disappointed at the evening food buffet. It's a shame as the hotel itself is beautiful. The food served was dry and some of it cold. We also had to ask for serving spoons as they had forgotten to put them out. Also there wasn't enough food and it quickly... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am finding it a little tricky to respond to your comments. Whilst I accept that we should certainly have provided sufficient serving spoons your criticism of the amount of food provided is more problematic. I am at a loss to understand how you can make the value for money since presumably you have no... 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
