Attended a masked birthday party- not really my thing I thought but the ancient setting and magical gardens made it a great evening along with some great food. Delightful little canopes- burgers, tuna, veggie cones. Then really nice hot buffet followed by two ten out of ten desserts. Throughout the evening service was professional and courteous.

Arrived for a 1 night business stay. Check-in went fine and gave my credit card as a gurantee and this was authorised without problems. Went through a few corridors and courtyards to my room that was not great - it was a room for the disabled and whilst this may be the final room they had in the hotel, the... More

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.

Whilst I was pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us I am dismayed at your comments regarding the missing watch. I spoke with your partner quite some time ago and also e-mailed you to request details of the missing watch to pass on to our insurers. To date I have not received any information about the watch....

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.

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.

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
