The first time I had afternoon tea at Great Fosters I was disappointed with where we were seated. It felt like we were sitting in a thoroughfare with staff and other guests constantly passing by and brushing against our chairs. This time we were seated in the Tudor Room which was far nicer. The staff were polite and attentive without... More

The approach from the road makes you feel like you are peeling away the years to a more genteel time - and one great touch is that this is reinforced by the fact that one can see no cars to spoil that impression! The atmosphere just drips history! And the staff are so friendly and service focused. A big shout... More

We held our son's wedding here last weekend and I felt I needed to put on record just how high the service levels were. Weddings usually bore me to death because of the cavalcade of clichés (bows on chair backs anyone?) and 'me-too' nonsense people seem to feel compelled to overload their event with. My son and (now) daughter planned... More

On our last night in Britain, we chose to stay at Great Fosters, just a short ride from Heathrow. This historic lodge, built in the 1500's, looks and feels like a set for a BBC historical drama. (There is furniture and decor in some rooms that is similar to what we had seen earlier at National Trust sites.) And the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it! First of all the decor is truly authentic and the gardens are magnificent! The rooms are spacious with complimentary refreshments and the beds are luxurious! My only criticism is the restaurant, as beautiful as it is I did find it a little pricey...... The hotel... More

Surrounded by some of the most exquisitely manicured gardens with outstanding topiary, the hotel dates far beyond the 1500s and is a treat to stay in. The hotel creaks with age (in a good way) and has a magnificent centre staircase and mullioned windows. Our room was on the top floor and decorated with silk from the ceilings to the... More

A stunning wedding location. The gardens and grounds are beautiful and the hotel amazing. My room was excellent. It was like having my own stately home for a night. The staff could not be more friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Great Fosters for a magical experience.

I recently celebrated a very important birthday (60th). To make the most of this occasion I organised an evening dinner party at Great Fosters for 40 family and friends. Many of our guests stayed for the night following the party and we were able to enjoy breakfast together before everyone went their separate ways. From the moment of arrival, through... More

We spent the night in this Hotel following our mariage 33 years ago. Great location and grounds however, the staff needed training...... Firstly on arrival we were treated at reception by two guys one under training who seemed to be on the ball but the trainer was a bit out of it....
