This is overall a lovely hotel. Beautiful historical building with friendly staff. Rooms are nice and spacious. The grounds are beautiful and there's a big heated pool. The restaurant needs some work. Some of the food was overcooked, bland and not very inventive. The service was friendly, swift but disorganized.One of the waiters had such a bad cold that the...

It was a birthday surprise, just one night, and what an exceptionally special experience. The really wonderful part was the delightful staff, everyone was kind, charming, concerned and professional. Yes the huge and characterful 1550 building with its tiny front door within a huge door was quirky, creaky, wonky and beautifully polished. Yes, the flowers were grand, elegant but also... More

Looking for a hotel to stay for one night before taking a flight from Heathrow, we settled on Great Fosters. A great choice. The building dates back to 1550 as a Royal Hunting Lodge. It is very luxurious from the moment one enters the reception area at the front. Our room was in the old stables across the courtyard and... More

We stayed one night in August. Our room in The Cloisters was pretty and spotlessly clean although quite a walk outside from the main hotel. Would not want to do it in the rain! Gorgeous Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom and a Bluetooth radio that could play our own music. Lovely cups with the tea tray! Pimm's on the... More

It being my wife's 'significant' birthday we chose to have a luncheon on a Sunday at the end of July at Great Fosters, being local for us. Having been there on many occasions over the yearrs we were confident that it would be good, but this time they really excelled themselves for us. We had the Mowbray Suite which is... More

Beautiful building, rooms and setting. Welcome and service amazing. Food and ambience in The Tudor room wonderful. When they found out it was our anniversary we were presented with a slate with Happy Anniversary piped in chocolate and a beautiful box with chocolates at the end of our meal. A thoughtful touch that shows the attention to detail. Loved it... More

The 3 of us stayed here for 3 nights this August. The room was large enough for all of us and the decor, with lots of dark wood, fit the style of this 1550s hunting lodge. We had an ultra modern marble bathroom with violet accent lights, a rain shower, and a beautiful modern stand-alone tub. This was nice, but... More

Have stayed here over the past 18 years on different occasions and still love the place. The hotel just oozes character and if you stay, be sure to go for a feature room as they are really, really special. Each one one has a charm of its own. Try not to get a hotel in the new building as they... 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
