Great Fosters certainly know how to look after their guests. We were shown to our table in the Cocktail bar which overlooked the stunning gardens. We felt we were in our own private area. All parts of our tea were well presented and very tasty. My Pimms was good!

On arrival at the magnificent entrance to this hotel, you are greeted with an intelligence test - whether to try to open the great oak door (wrong) or the smaller door set within the great door (right). We failed the test but eventually stumbled laughing into the magnificent oak panelled entrance hall/lounge. After briefly warming ourselves by the fire we... More

We have just returned from an excellent stay at the Great Fosters. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and always went out their way to help you. We stayed in the Panel II room and it was a very lovely experience. Large four poster bed and great sized bathroom. Dinner at the Estate Grill was delicious and staff were... More

We had a one night stay here visiting the area for work and although we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the dinner menu, would highly recommend this hotel for informal luxury. The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful, our room in the main house was beautifully decorated and peaceful with views onto the garden. We enjoyed... More

Fantastic! Love this place. The hotel is so charming, well maintained, clean, modern when needed and still provides the feel of a building from the 1500's. The room is big with a modern bathroom. Darren at the front desk was very helpful . i I stayed in the Panel one room . new bathroom and shower. dark wood , give... More

We came here for my 20th Birthday Lunch with my parents. It was set in a beautiful location with great service and lovely food. I couldn't fault it at all, I only wish I would have had the opportunity to stay in the hotel overnight although I go to university nearby and I didn't even know it was so close!

For our second stay here we were given a contemporary room in the Coach House. It wasn’t an entirely pleasant experience - the room was on the ground floor and overlooked by any passers by, and there were dozens that day attending some sort of function. The lighting wasn’t great, the milk was off, one of the bathrobes was terribly... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your most recent stay at Great Fosters. I was saddened to read that you did not enjoyed your stay in Landau as much as your previous visit. Landau does have under floor heating in the bathroom. My housekeeper has informed me that she found the switch turned off on... More

My wife and I stayed at Great Fosters the other weekend to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary, as we’d held our wedding reception here back in 2005, and now we have 4 children we don’t get away very often. I’m happy to say that it hasn’t changed. There is still that amazing air of luxury mixed with history. We had... More

It's amazing to think you can stay in a hotel that was built in the 1550s located less than half and hour from the busiest airport in the world! True, Great Fosters is an amazing place. It's all there, minuscule doorway to get into the hotel, squeaky oak floor boards, ancient wood paneled walls, roaring wood fireplaces, carved ceilings and... More

This is a hotel well worth staying in for its charm and sense of history. Advertised as a hunting lodge for Henry VIII it had in fact dozens of owners before and after. We stayed in one of the historic rooms (at a price, of course) but it was well appointed, spacious with period furniture, comfortable with good quality bed... More
